We are happy to announce we have opened the shipping side of our business,  We are taking this time to work on improvements in our restaurant and rooms for a future grand re-opening.

The Kennebunk Inn lodging and dining will continue to remain temporarily closed until the travel restrictions are more welcoming to our tourist community. Listed below are the most current restrictions:

Listed below are the most current State mandates. We sincerely feel this does not represent our hospitality industry. We would love to see you in the future when guidelines include all and not divided by state lines.

Updated March 5, 2021, Mandates For Anyone Entering Maine

Effective March 5, 2021: Visitors from New Hampshire, Vermont, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut are exempt from test or quarantine requirements. People who have recently had COVID-19 or been fully vaccinated against COVID-19, regardless of their state of origin, are exempt from the test or quarantine requirement.

Effective  May 1, 2021, the plan:

  • Shifts Maine’s COVID-19 travel policy requirements from an “all states included, unless exempt” model to an “all states exempt, unless included” model. This means that travelers from all states are automatically exempt unless otherwise determined by the Maine CDC.
  • Under this new model, the Maine CDC will be charged with identifying states that have a high prevalence of highly contagious COVID-19 variants. If one or more states see a spike in variant cases, Maine will apply its test or quarantine requirement to travelers to and from that state. This more targeted approach will remain in effect through the summer.
