Best experience of our lives

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Jul 25, 2013
My wife and I stayed there two nights in the Lincoln room, though legend says its haunted, not this time. The place was immaculate, we felt at home, breakfasts were the best and the people we met the greatest. Thumbs up to all of you at the mansion for making our stay so enjoyable.
There was only one huge problem, we had to leave.
Thank you for a great time and making our anniversary special

The staff was most hospitable and very friendly. Our room, the Rachel room, was very comfortable and clean, and a nice cool escape from the heat and humidity! Breakfast each morning was exquisite, with a slower paced service that made it enjoyable. We never felt rushed and had plenty to eat. A complimentary glass of wine was provided upon our arrival and was wonderful. The afternoon chocolate chip cookies were also yummy! We truly appreciated the beach pass, beach chairs and towels so we could enjoy ourselves at Goose Rocks Beach. Truly a wonderful place to stay with such friendly helpful employees. We look forward to a return in the future.

Ah, the Rachel room is one of our favorites! So glad you enjoyed your stay there and the hospitality of Jed and Alana. We are pleased you found the breakfasts to be exquisite and relaxing, and also enjoyed the wine and cookies. We look forward to your return to our Kennebunkport boutique inn.

The Captain Jefferds is by far a favorite place for my wife and I to visit. We were first referred here two years ago by a friend of the family and told of its charm and beauty, and they were spot on. We have referred other family and friends here and they too have enjoyed the comfort and amenities of the Captain Jefferds as well. Beautiful rooms, a gorgeous sitting area, amazing kitchen and sun porch. Every aspect of this is purely spectacular.

The breakfasts are always of the highest quality. Staff is always friendly and welcoming. They treat you like family from the moment you walk in until you leave and always welcome you back!

With plenty to do in town you can never be bored. Or if you just want to sit back and relax, the Inn has a collection of books to choose from and many of the rooms have a good size tub or hot tub to relax and unwind in.

We have been here twice and surely will return again!

Room tip: All of the rooms are great. If you are looking for large, luxurious and spacious....the Arrundle (sp?) room is perfect....or if you prefer smaller and lower cost the Chatham is just the right fit!

It is incredibly gratifying to rank as one of your favorite places to visit! We couldn't be happier than to know that your second stay was just as special as your first. We strive to create a setting where guests feel warmly welcomed and at ease, so it is wonderful to hear that you feel just like "family" when you are here. Our success is truly measured by how happy are guests feel, so we appreciate knowing that you thoroughly enjoy your visits. Thank you so much for your referrals and for your lovely review. We look forward to visit number three and helping you and your wife have another relaxing escape to Kennebunkport!

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

I promised myself I would never stay in a B&B... THat changed this past week when my husband and I stayed at Captain Fairfield. I loved it. The Inn was charming but not "cute" as it has many modern furnishings and was very clean and chic. Our room was perfect and immaculate, a glass of wine was brought up the moment we arrived. Breakfast was great and not terribly annoying to have to be with other guests. You could chat if you wanted or sit at your own table. Great location, walk to all.

Well. . .we are so glad we could change your mind about inns, but fair warning -- not all have as modern a style or amenities as we do! Thank you for your lovely recommendation. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay so much and chose to share your experience. Please come back again the next time your travels bring you to Kennebunkport.

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.

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!
