Built in 1914, this grand holiday resort sits spectacularly above the Atlantic Ocean at the mouth of the Kennebunk River, proudly owned and operated by the Broughton family since 1948. Thanks to some very forward thinking by Jestene Broughton, The Colony became Maine’s first environmentally responsible hotel in 1989. In 1994 the hotel turned its attention to conservation and initiated the Colony Hotel Ecology Group.
Their deep commitment to providing their guests with a quality experience while maintaining the policy of respect for Nature and their surroundings is shared throughout all levels of staff. Varying degrees of on-site educational information is readily available to guests. And, for a very pleasant change you will find your in room waste-bins are conveniently separated for your trash and recyclables. The consistent attention to conservation, waste reduction, and cultural stability have helped to qualify it as a U.S. Backyard Wildlife Habitat.
Open from mid-May through late October. Situated on 112 acres, you’ll enjoy a heated outdoor saltwater pool, private safe surf beach, organic gardens, including flowers, roses, and herb. It’s an easy walk to Kennebunkport, with many area activities including golf, tennis, sea kayaking, nature trails, bicycling, boating, shopping and galleries.
