Kenniston Hill Inn

Boothbay, Maine
Take a step back in time. This 1786 mansion built by David Kenniston, a prominent shipbuilder and landowner is now a wonderfully restored Bed & Breakfast. Ten tastefully decorated rooms, each with a private bath, comfy quilts, five with working fireplaces, offer homelike accommodations for a discriminating clientele.

Acres of wildflowers, gardens and shady maples invite you to explore the natural beauty of one of the oldest homes in Boothbay. A full country breakfast is served by the fireplace in the dining room.

The huge open hearth fireplace in the living room is a welcome setting for reading, chatting, or relaxing. Step back in time at Kenniston Hill Inn for the very best in accommodations. Open all year

Boothbay Harbor region is full of places to stay. Few, however, offer the peace and quiet of the Kenniston Hill Inn coupled with ease of access to the bustle when you're ready for it.

Set back from Route 27, this white center chimney Georgian Early American home with column porch is an oasis for travelers. Yet Boothbay Harbor and all its attractions is only a short ride away.

With five of the ten bedrooms offering working fireplaces, the handsome decor and four poster beds add to the romantic atmosphere. All ten rooms have private baths. Each of the rooms have there own unique character and charm. Several of them have their own outside entrances

About the Innkeeper:

Dianne came to Maine very young in the mid 1960's after military family travels. She raised her two daughters in Cornish and Bridgton Maine while hoping to one day own a Bed and Breakfast, towards this goal she restored a couple of 200 year old homes, spent a lot of time in the kitchen from after school cookies, to her own Christmas Open Houses, homemade egg rolls & fried rice selling to local markets, went on to work in the boating/yacht industry and previously owning and operating a fiberglass and boat repair business.

The opportunity and a tremendous amount of planning and drive brought her in the new chapter of her life of owning and operating this historical Inn in Beautiful Boothbay, Maine where she only vacationed over the years.

Dianne brings with her, cooking experience and all recipes made from scratch, a knowledge of period homes, restoration, the boating industry, romance, family, antiques. Dianne is also a notary public for both weddings and business meetings or conventions.

Early coffee at 7:30, specialties include walnut pancakes, goat cheese omelets, French bread breakfast pizza, the "best" Maine home fries. Guest's may choose to enjoy breakfast in the dining room, on the porch, or out in the gardens.

In the afternoon you can relax in a hammock about anywhere in the period gardens, or sit on the rockers on the front porch enjoy a cool drink and delicious homemade snacks.
