Historic Charm

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jul 21, 2013
This 1804 Sea Captains' home was very charming, romantic and picturesque.The overall atmosphere is beautiful and quaint. We were greeted and given a warm welcome from innkeeper assistant Steve. Sarah and her staff were very pleasant and gave personal service to their guests' needs.The rooms are immaculate.The breakfast and afternoon tea divine.The location is quiet and a short walk to shops, restaurants and galleries. We had an enjoyable stay.If you would like a taste of Maine, Captain Jefferds' is the place to experience it.
Date of stay: July 2013
Room Tip: The Wyeth Room has lovely windows and charm.

Thank you for your wonderful review and for taking the time to share your experience at the Jefferds! We are very happy to know that you enjoyed so many aspects of your stay. It is great to hear that you felt warmly welcomed and that you found our location ideal. We are definitely fortunate to have a spot that hits the perfect balance between close proximity (to shops, restaurants and attractions) and being peacefully tucked away in a quiet neighborhood of historic homes. The heart of the village is just a five-minute walk and the area’s beautiful beaches are minutes away by car. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again sometime soon.

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

With its welcoming staff, comfortable ambience, and every amenity a quality inn could offer, walking through the door at Captain Jefferds is like coming home again. Situated within a quiet neighborhood, the inn and its gardens offer a peaceful place to escape from the busyness of life, and yet is only minutes away from shopping and the beach. And after a day of boating, swimming, or simply walking around the port, it's nice to come "home" to afternoon tea or a cool drink of lemonade in the sunroom. Whether making dinner reservations or bringing a guest an extra towel, the innkeepers and staff are very accommodating and aim to please. My family and I have been frequent guests of Captain Jefferds Inn for more than ten years, and since I am very particular, that is a testimony in itself. We love it there. It's our home away from home.

We are truly fortunate to have guests return to us time after time, there really is no higher compliment. It is wonderful to know that the inn feels just like “home” for you and maybe even just a little better because here you don’t have any chores! We are always happy to do everything we can to help guests relax and get the most out of their visit to Kennebunkport. It is a special job and we take great pleasure in doing it. Thank you so much for your kind review, we look forward to welcoming you back often over the next ten years!

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

This made our fourth visit to this fantastic inn. Staff is very friendly, knowledgeable and constantly went out of their way to make our stay very enjoyable. We were lucky to be able to spend four nights in the Adare suite. Very comfortable and unbelievably clean room. Fruit and cheese tray with sparkling wine was waiting for us when we arrived. Sarah and Erik even went above and beyond to obtain a special variety of roses for me for my wife and my 14th anniversary.
Breakfasts were fantastic and different. Service was outstanding especially with Tina tending to everything and remembering how you like things done, like how you like your coffee. Steve was like talking to a friend about the local cuisine each evening when we came back "home".
Thanks for a having such a special place.

The property is beautiful. The location is perfect. The staff bend over backwards to make you feel as welcomed and comfortable as possible. The breakfast is delicious. If you are looking for a relaxing vacation at a first rate property in lovely Kennebunkport, then look no further. My wife and I have travelled all over, and this place ranks right up there at the top. Surprisingly great, considering the reasonable price.

This is our second visit to the captain lord mansion and we can only reiterate all the brilliant reviews that every one has shared. This B & B is immaculate and we cannot wait to visit again. Just a short walk to the centre of the wonderful Kennybunkport.

Room tip: All of the rooms look lovely from the pictures on the postcards

Dear Hartford CT, It is wonderful to read that we are "perfect"; however, sometimes we are not! Whenever we receive a review that is less than glowing, we look for the nuggets of truth that will allow us to find ways to improve. Hope to see you soon for visit number 3. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

My husband and I recently stayed at this wonderful property during a trip along the Maine coast, and we brought along our 85-pound Great Dane puppy. We only give 5 stars out for truly exceptional properties, and this inn absolutely deserves a 5-star rating. There is an incredible attention to detail, and the property is spotless. The inn is pet friendly, but you would never know it from how clean everything is. Upon arrival we were given a tour of the inn, including their complimentary beverages, selection of teas, and afternoon snacks. In our room the owners has prepared a welcome kit for our puppy, including a big dog cookie with his name on it and a brand new tennis ball. Totally unexpected, but such an adorable touch. Our room was very spacious and beautifully appointed, and had it's own Keurig coffee maker. When we mentioned we were going to the beach, we were provided special beach towels as well as a parking pass for the beach. The breakfast was delicious, and the property is conveniently located next to a gorgeous park and walking distance from the center of town. All in all, this is a perfect inn and we would love to stay here again in the future. Kudos to the owners for creating such a fabulous B&B experience!

It is so wonderful to know that you had a fabulous time staying with us and very gratifying to hear that this was among the best B&B experiences you have ever had. Our hope is to provide a comfortable spot for guests to relax in while exploring the area and we try to make our four-legged guests feel just as welcome as their humans. We recognize that the inn is an unfamiliar environment which hopefully feels infinitely more comfortable with the addition of a snack and new toy. Thank you so much for your lovely review! We look forward to making your next visit just as enjoyable.

Wishing you the best, Sarah and Erik, Keepers of the Captain Jefferds Inn
