The 1802 House is owned and operated by Teri and Roger Walker who have recently returned to the US from living abroad. When you meet Roger you will hear the English accent. While Teri is American, she did live in the UK for 20 years and you will find their English influences throughout the Inn.
The original colonial house was built in 1802 with extensions added in the 90’s when it was converted into a Bed and Breakfast. 1802 House is now counted as one of Kennebunkport’s finest historic Inns. Ideally located in a quiet tranquil area, the Inn is only a short walk to Dock Square, the quaint center of the village and home to fabulous boutiques, unique galleries and fine restaurants. We are also a club’s length from the Cape Arundel Golf Course.
Our six guest rooms take their names from places in Maine. Anglophiles will also note that these names come from places in England as well. Most notably are two castles; the widely known Windsor Castle (one of Queen Elizabeth II’s homes) and the lesser known, and Teri’s favourite, Arundel Castle. Arundel has been home to the Dukes of Norfolk who have played significant roles in English history dating all the way back to Henry VIII and his daughter Elizabeth I.
