We stayed at the Captain Fairfield Inn for 3 nights in June 2013. We were welcomed with a broad smile and a very comfortable room. Breakfasts were a particular highlight, everything freshly made and delicious. Jed is a great cook. Location is great for the town, beaches, restaurants etc. We got some great recommendations from Alana on what to see and where to eat. Highly recommended.

Starting from when we first arrived to the minute we left we loved this place. It was very centrally located, within walking distance to town with shopping and restaurants. The garden was beautiful with a nice little sitting area with a pond. Our room was private and very comfortable with its own private entrance and porch. The breakfasts were delicious and the inn keepers were very nice as well as accommodating. I truly can't wait to go back!!!

We are so happy to hear that from start to finish you had an enjoyable experience! Summer is the perfect time to settle into one of our garden seating nooks, including the one by our waterfall and pond. Thank you for sharing your experience and your kind review. We can’t wait to welcome you back!

Best wishes, Sarah and Erik, Keepers of the Captain Jefferds Inn

Nothing like old fashioned service!
The rooms were exceptionally comfortable with a bed that could swallow you whole if you let it.
The bathrooms had a heated floor which I would imagine would be perfect during the right season!

The breakfast was the most impressive part that made it feel like a true bed and breakfast...relaxed and family style!

A bit pricey but well worth it!

Btw, is it haunted? We both had some...experiences that we decided NOT to share downstairs!

Dear Boston, Thanks for your positive review. Bev and I like to think any spirits here are ones that are blessing us and the guests! Also, thanks for your mention of our "impressive" breakfast. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

The Captain Fairfield is the best hotel experience I can remember having. The innkeepers are warm and welcoming, the property is eclectic and immaculate and the location is perfect. The welcome glass of wine and freshly baked cookies are some of the small touches that make the Captain Fairfield stand out. The outdoor seating area is a great addition, the beds really are incredibly comfortable and the three course breakfast will spoil you. If you're in the area or even looking for a great stay in a fun town, this is the place you're looking for.

We recently stayed at the Captain Fairfield and could not have been happier with our stay. The accommodations were beautiful, the location was right near town, and the service was top-notch! Alana and Jed were amazing… we felt so welcomed and they provided fantastic recommendations on where to go, see, eat. etc. Also, cannot say enough about the breakfast… delicious! We will definitely be back and would not even consider staying anywhere else!

This property was absolutely wonderful.

The inn itself is extremely well appointed and an antique marvel. Access is great and parking is very easy. After, its bikes and walking everywhere as it placed perfectly to visit the area and leave the car keys in the room.

The rooms are very clean, very comfortable, and the small extras with the sun room and kitchen down stairs is supper.

We will be back early I imagine. The only problem is, it will be hard for us in other B&B's as The Captain Jefferds Inn has put the level way up at the top.
