Meet the new Innkeepers

Meet the new Innkeepers, us! We’re Carl and Eileen Robley. Originally from the North-West of England, we moved to California in 2005 and then to Syracuse in 2011. Bringing experience from around the globe, we are two innkeepers who are new to Kennebunkport and ready to serve you!


Moving to Kennebunkport

We chose to move to Kennebunkport for the breathtaking views and friendly folk along with the history and spectacular coastlines. The 1802 House captured our hearts with its quintessential charm, coziness and comfort. Each room brings something homey, relaxing, and enjoyable to a stay. We’ve stayed in our fair share of B&Bs and this one takes the cake, quite literally, there is cake here a lot of the time!


Before breaking into the world of Bed and Breakfasts, Carl worked in telecommunications and Eileen was in the healthcare. They enjoy gardening and baking so be sure to check out some of Carl’s signature bakes (On your marks, get set… you know the rest). Be sure to grab a cookie and take a stroll through the beautiful garden.


Hobbies and Interests

Eileen enjoys spending time reading. Some of her favorite authors include Terry Pratchett, John Irving, and anyone who writes about mythical or magical worlds. She is often found snapping photos out in nature or watching films depending on the weather.


Carl is a tinkerer of all things electronic. Washing machines, dishwashers, computers, you name it. A very handy man to have around. He is an avid Leicester City Football fan and can be found watching matches in his favorite chair whenever they are scheduled. He also enjoys fishing and online shopping.


We really enjoy sampling local fare in Kennebunkport and the surrounding areas, and we are ready with recommendations when you need them! We particularly like traditional English pub fare (who can pass up some good fish and chips?) and a good Indian curry.


So come by the 1802 House and meet us, we’ll put the kettle on for you.
