The only thing I didn't like about The Captain Jefferds Inn was having to check out. The house and grounds were perfect and my room had a cozy bed with the softest sheets I've ever slept on. The location was great for strolling around town or biking to the beach. The breakfast beat any 5-star restaurant and meeting Erik and...

We have just returned from a 30th wedding anniversary trip to New England and stayed in various inns in Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. The Captain Jefferds was the stand out accommodation. Beautiful inn in an excellent location, 5 star service and we have no hesitation in recommending it to others.
