A Perfect Stay at the Captain William Jefferds House!

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Apr 27, 2024
We had the pleasure of staying at the Captain William Jefferds House for a special anniversary celebration. The staff went above and beyond to add to our enjoyment. We were greeted with lovely welcome gifts, given a choice of rooms, including an upgrade, and bestowed with kindness throughout our stay. The William Jefferds is absolutely stunning! As an individual interested in design, I found each of the rooms to be a perfect blend of modernism and eclecticism! We so enjoyed sitting by the glowing fireplace in the main reception room as well as in our own beautiful suite. Lovely breakfasts are served in the sunny dining area with its walls of French doors looking out to the manicured gardens. We were treated to delicious quiches, egg muffins, fruit, pastries and so much more! Coffee is available throughout the day, and the best chocolate chip cookies were available in the afternoon. We had the pleasure of being able to stop into the Captain Lord Mansion as well as the Captain Fairfield, and they too are stunning! This review would not be complete without a special shout-out to Kristen, the General Manager of the Captains Collection, and to Valerie and Anna who made sure we had the accommodations best suited to our taste! All the ladies at the inns were so kind, and though I don’t have the names of all, they too deserve a sincere thank you! When there, if possible, try to dine at Earth at Hidden Pond, and Little Barn at The White Barn…meals were sublime! Hurricane in town was wonderful, and lobster rolls from Port Lobster in Kennebunkport sweet and tender! All in all, the best of stays in this pristine and sparkling Captain’s Home, made all the more special by its kind, welcoming staff! Kudos to all at Lark’s, The Captains Collection! We are already planning a return visit!

If we could give the Nathaniel Lord House 10 stars we would! This is the type of accommodation that we would love to have in all our travels.
Virginia greeted us with a smile and provided us with valuable and fascinating information about the area through out our stay. The ladies in the kitchen served a luscious breakfast buffet. The aroma each morning through out the house made our mouths water. As for our room, it was furnished in dramatic period pieces - far beyond our expectations. We had the opportunity to view the other mansions in the collection and they were equally as magnificent. If you are visiting Kennebunkport, don't miss the opportunity to stay at these memorable historic homes.

Anniversary weekend, enjoying the town of Kennebunkport. The accommodation was classy and cozy, with very welcoming hosts. We had the breakfast as well, which was homemade hot cross buns (celebrating Easter), and lovely quiche and pastries. I would highly recommend

This historic inn was beautifully decorated. The staff was so welcoming upon our arrival and throughout our stay. The breakfast was delicious and the inviting fire was lovely to sit by. The location was perfect for walking to the ocean and getting to restaurants and shops downtown.

This was our third stay at the Captain’s Collection. This time it was a midweek getaway for mother and daughter. Again, everything was wonderful. It was beautiful, clean, and charming in a sophisticated but comfortable way. The breakfasts and chocolate chip cookies are incredible. We look forward to another stay. We had a great lunch at Crew in Ogunquit, and a wonderful meal at Pedro’s.

The house we stayed in was wonderful. This is a collection of sea captain houses located within walking distance of each other. We stayed at the Jefferd House which is light and airy. The room was very comfortable with a fireplace. Since it was off season, we had the house to ourselves for most of the time we were there (4 nights). The breakfast in the main house was varied each morning including eggs, fruit, yogurt, muffins, etc. The staff was very pleasant and made us feel at home. Coffee and tea were available in the kitchen of the house throughout the day. Would definitely stay there again.

Room tip: Be aware that there are not that many restaurants and/or shops open in Kennebunkport at this time of year.
