Delightfully comfortable experience

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Aug 11, 2013
We had an exceptionally delightful experience at this quaint, with a modern twist, inn! Great location with a short walk to a variety of eateries, shops and day excursions. Innkeepers were very approachable and helpful, providing each guest with an IPad loaded with pertinent apps to seek out restaurants and things to do. The inn has been beautifully maintained and is immaculate. The breakfast choices were exceptional each morning, making the decision to choose a difficult one. We definitely would stay at the Capt Fairfield Inn again!

Loved the Captain Jefferds Inn! Only complaint was that we only stayed for one night on our way back from a camping trip to Acadia. If you're looking for somewhere peaceful to stay while in Maine, this is your place. We brought our dog with us and they made her feel as comfortable as us. The dog biscuit with her name on it in the room was a nice touch. Will definitely come back next time were' in town

Room tip: If you're bringing your dog to Maine, this is the place to stay.

Thank you for your kind review. The best suggestion we have to address your complaint is to come back soon and stay much longer! It is so wonderful that you and your dog loved your brief visit. We strive to make our four-legged guests feel just as appreciated as their humans. We look forward to welcoming you back again the next time you are in town!

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

As we drove up to Captain Jefferds, I immediately felt confident that we had booked the right place. The beautifully manicured lawn, outdoor patios surrounded by flower gardens made my husband and I feel like we were at a special retreat. The manager greeted us by name as we walked in the door for the first time, and made us feel at home. The rooms are just as they are shown online, if not better, and very clean. The sheets are incredibly soft. Each morning they provide a delicious, homemade, and very creative 3-course meal. My favorite meal was the apricot stuffed french toast and sweet and spicy bacon. They also provide bottled water, sodas, and snacks, which was an added bonus as we were coming and going throughout the day. One of my favorite experiences of the stay was taking 2 of the available Captain Jeffers bikes down to Mother's beach for the afternoon. The staff packed us towels in a backpack so it made traveling easy, and we didn't have to deal with parking. But if you prefer to drive to the local beaches, they will provide you with passes that cover the cost of parking. Oh! And don't leave kennebunkport without trying Rococo ice cream at the end of Spring Street downtown... we went there every evening to see what new flavors they had created thanks to a recommendation by one of the other guests.

Captain Jefferds made our time in Kennebunkport much more special than if we had stayed anywhere else. I am already looking forward to when we can return again.

Room tip: We stayed in the Camden room, and it was beautiful.

We are so pleased to hear that you immediately felt right at home at the inn and that you had a special stay with us. Our hope is to offer warm, friendly service in a setting that is comfortable and welcoming. It sounds like we hit all the right notes for you. It is gratifying to know that you enjoyed the little touches we offer, like three-course made-from-scratch breakfasts, beach cruiser bicycles, beach towels, and complimentary drinks and snacks. We heartily agree that Rococo is a can't miss destination. Their creamy, Argentinean-style ice cream is some of the smoothest, most uniquely flavorful ice cream we have ever encountered. Thank you so much for your enthusiastic review, we look forward to your next visit!

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

Location was perfect to walk into town. It was nice to have actual parking spaces instead of street parking. Breakfast was gourmet... Way better than anything you could get in a local restaurant. Room was clean and bed extra plush and comfy for a getaway. The staff was amazing and incredibly helpful. I'd recommend this b&b to everyone .

We stayed 2 nights and we loved it!!! Beautiful house, beautiful gardens and very comfortable room! The only complaint I have about this b&b is the loud air conditioning unit in the window... but it's part of staying in this beautiful, historic house! Loved the glass if wine when we arrived, breakfast was delicious, personnel was very nice and helpful. Would stay there again!!! If you go, make sure you eat at The Lobster pound in Ogunquit! The best!!!!!

Thank you very much for one of the most memorable experiences in our short 5-year marriage. We stayed in the Baxter Room and will request more than just 1 night on our next trip to Kennebunkport! We also missed an amazing breakfast (they packed us delicious blueberry muffins to go) mainly because the bed was just way too comfortable. The inn, the grounds, the location, and the wonderful four-season room to have snacks and wine in were exceptional. Even though there are many high-class bed and breakfasts inns just a stones throw away, we will make Jefferds our go-to place for years to come.
