About Our Historic Maine Inn
Kennebunkport’s 1802 House Bed and Breakfast Inn is owned and operated by Carl and Eileen Robley. Originally from the North-West of England, they moved to California in 2005 with their children and then to the East Coast in 2011. You will find the couple’s English influences throughout the inn.
The house is of original colonial design. As the name implies, it was built in 1802. Extensions were added over the years, and in the 1990s it was converted into the charming bed and breakfast you see today. 1802 House Bed and Breakfast Inn is now considered one of the town’s finest historic inns.
Our quiet, tranquil neighborhood is perfect for a relaxing Kennebunkport getaway. At the same time, the inn is just a short walk to the popular Dock Square village center with its galleries, shops and restaurants. We lie along the 15th fairway of the historical Cape Arundel Golf Course, making the 1802 Bed and Breakfast Inn an ideal location for golfers.
Our six guest rooms take their names from places in Maine. Anglophiles will 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 favorite, Arundel Castle. Arundel has been home for centuries 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.
