CJI is a wonderful B&B. Very clean and very well maintained for a historic home. The staff is fantastic and very accommodating. The location is a perfect walking distance to the town center. I will stay here again.

This was our first time at Capt. Jeffords Inn and we loved every minute of it. It's a beautiful property and no detail is overlooked. We stayed in the Monticello room which was a large room with a fireplace. We really enjoyed the fireplace and the king sized bed was very comfortable. Highly reccommend and hope to return very soon.
