Just spent two delightful nights at the B&B. We are repeat customers and just can't get enough of the hospitality and surroundings at Captian Jefferds. Upon arrival we were greeted by Steve and immediately made to feel welcomed and at home. As always the rooms and common areas were beautifully appointed and maticuously clean. Our breakfasts were delicious and graciously...

This B & B is VERY special in many ways. The Staff, the accommodations, the breakfast, the grounds... ALL TOP SHELF. We stayed in one of the Inn's Pet Friendly rooms and was very impressed with how special they made our dog feel, even personalized pet treats! The Inn is conveniently located just a short walk to all town attractions...

We have been coming here going on 5 years now so this review is long overdue. There are so many things that make the Captain Jefferds Inn truly a special place it's difficult to name them all so I'll touch on a few. It is elegant, yet casual, charming, cozy, beautiful and sparkling clean. There's a gorgeous flower garden, meticulous...

We arrived in the seasons first real snowstorm ... "The Inn" itself has incredible curb appeal ... you expect to see Robert Frost or Norman Rockwell as you enter, but it is even better ... you meet Sarah and Erik ... who attend to your every need in their Federal period built and furnished inn which is meticulously maintained ......

This was an easy and comfortable place to stay whilst in Kennebunkport. We shared the pavilion in the garden with another couple from our family and enjoyed the use of the private terrace/balcony. We used the free bicycles every day to explore the area and they were a great advantage. Breakfasts (which were in two sittings) were generous and well...
