US: AWOL Kennebunkport, located in Maine, has opened marking the second branded AWOL property from Lark Hotels.

AWOL Kennebunkport features six suites in the main house and 11 new cabin suites. The first AWOL hotel opened in Provincetown in 2018.

The cabin suites offer indoor fireplaces and some come with Japanese soaking tubs. In the main house, there’s a variety of porch suites, fireplace suites, and one deluxe cupola suite with access to a conservatory sitting area.

Amenities include complimentary breakfasts, personalised concierge services, bicycles and beach chairs for guest use. 

Elder & Ash, a Massachusetts-based design firm, outfitted the hotel and Brooklyn painter Alex Soffer created all the art and centrepieces within each suite.

“Because of our exceptional location, guests at AWOL Kennebunkport can be in the middle of the action but feel like they’re in the middle of nowhere,” said Lark Hotels president and Elder & Ash partner, Rob Blood. “We carefully designed this retreat to offer many private spaces but also opportunities to enjoy the company of other travellers. Like our sister hotel in Provincetown, AWOL KPT invites guests to come as they are and to escape the ordinary. We’re excited to introduce AWOL to the community and for our guests to embrace all of the amazing attractions that Kennebunkport offers.”

Formed in 2012 ,Lark Hotels is a multi-brand platform with a portfolio of over 30 boutique hotels on the East Coast and California. The company introduced a third party management division in 2020, and the following year launched Bluebird by Lark – a sister collection of boutique roadside lodges.
