Newly Re-imagined Hotel to Open for the Season on May 17, 2018 with Special Savings

KENNEBUNKPORT, ME (January 24, 2018) – Tim Harrington, founding partner and creative director of the Kennebunkport Resort Collection (KRC), owners and operators of nine area hotels and five restaurants, announced the renovation and opening date of the newly purchased Yachtsman Lodge & Marina, now named the Yachtsman Hotel & Marina Club.

Located directly on the Kennebunk River in downtown Kennebunkport, the 30-room hotel will reopen for the season on May 17, 2018, after a complete renovation of the rooms, common areas and river-side landscaping.  As part of its re-branding, the Yachtsman Hotel & Marina Club will also have an exclusive partnership with the Kennebunkport Marina, providing guests special privileges such as transient slips for overnight stays and access to water sports equipment rentals.

“The Yachtsman is a perfect complement and distinctive addition to the KRC portfolio,” said Harrington. “Like all of our properties, it has a signature location that drives the design aesthetic, the guest amenities and services, and will set it apart from other hotels in Kennebunkport.”

The hotel’s Welcome Aboard package invites guests to a two-night stay in the new Harborfront Bungalows with welcome cocktails starting at $599 per room Sunday through Thursday; and $649 on Friday and Saturday evenings, available May 17 to June 20, 2018. (Based on availability; some restrictions apply.) Visit for details.

Each of the 30 Harborfront Bungalows have private landscaped outdoor space with a teak terrace overlooking unobstructed river views.  The interiors have been redesigned as bright and airy king-bedded rooms with white shiplap walls, high ceilings and boutique-style furnishings in cheery shades of mango, magenta and sky blue.

The newly renovated bar is an ideal place to watch the sun set while nibbling small bites and sipping a favorite cocktail. Among the complimentary amenities are daily breakfast treats, in-room mini-fridge, and high-end coffee makers, free Wi-Fi, and use of bicycles, kayaks and canoes.

For additional information and reservations, please visit or call 207-967-2511. The Yachtsman Hotel & Marina Club is located at 59 Ocean Avenue, Kennebunkport, ME 04046.
