KENNEBUNKPORT, ME—The Cape Arundel Inn joined the Kennebunkport Resort Collection's group of boutique properties.
Located on Ocean Ave., the Cape Arundel Inn has 14 guestrooms, seven with balconies and views to the Atlantic Ocean.
Opening May 15 will be Ocean at the Cape Arundel Inn, helmed by restaurateur Pierre Gignac, chef and owner o French-inspired restaurant 98 Provence. Ocean, as well as the property’s other public spaces, are being redesigned to create new social spaces. Kennebunkport interior designer Louise Hurlbutt was inspired to design Ocean in harmony with the views from its panoramic windows in a color palette of navy and tan with geometric carpeting. A new mahogany bar and leather banquette also are part of the décor. The reception area and living room will be outfitted with new sofas and wing chairs for guests to enjoy afternoon tea or sunset cocktails before heading out to the inn’s large front porch for views of Walker’s Point.
Guestrooms at the Inn are decorated with neutral tones on the walls; the rooms’ focal points are large windows that offer ocean views.
Cape Arundel Inn offers guests complimentary breakfast each day, free bike rentals, beach passes and access to Kennebunkport’s Dock Square and Lower Village.
The Cape Arundel Inn will be a sister property to the nearby Old Fort Inn & Resort. Guests of both properties will be able to use the large outdoor pool at Old Fort Inn and guests of Old Fort Inn will have signing privileges for meals and drinks service at the Cape Arundel Inn.
Both properties are owned and managed by Kennebunkport Resort Collection representing diverse luxury and upscale properties such as Hidden Pond, the Kennebunkport Inn, The Tides Beach Club, the Cottages at Cabot Cove, The Lodge on the Cove, The Grand Hotel and The Boathouse Hotel & Marina.
