“So friendly and helpful”
Reviewed 27 March 2012

My girlfriend and I were looking for a stress-free weekend getaway. We stayed in the Mary Lord Room. It was very comfortable, the bathroom was huge, and the fireplace created a really nice atmosphere in the evening. The breakfasts and snacks were to die for. But most of all, the staff were incredibly friendly, helpful, and attentive to the smallest details. Although Kennebunkport is only starting to wake up this time of year (we still found plenty of shops, restaurants and sites to keep us occupied), the room and inn were so comfortable that you could just stay there the whole time and be perfectly happy. We couldn't have been happier with our decision to stay at Captain Lord.

Dear Boston, Truly, we appreciate such effusive reviews as yours. Thank you, Thank you! Yes, Kennebunkport has become a year-round destination resort; many shops and galleries are open most of the year. We specialize in "stress free" getaways! Also, thank you for mentioning our food service. I find it very difficult to stay away from the afternoon snacks and my waistline shows it! Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

We needed a getaway from job stresses and the hussle and bustle of our busy lives. I would be surprised to find a better place than this to do so. We had the most wonderful three night stay. The rooms are beautifully decorated, the Inn is so warm and inviting, the staff was bend over backwards helpful and the breakfasts are incredible. At our first breakfast we met some folks that were back for their 22nd time. We thought, why wouldn't they try other places? By the end of our stay we no longer questioned their choice. We will most certainly be returning as well.

Just left our third visit to Captain Lord. Once again it was a perfect experience. The Oriental room was beautiful and breakfasts were fantastic! We made sure we had reserved our next visit before leaving. Our goal is to stay in each of the rooms.
We highly recommend a stay if you are visiting Maine!

Dear P, Thank you for this review and your 3rd visit. It is interesting how different guests make different room choices when visiting us. Some, like you, want to try each room. Others, choose to stay in the same room visit after visit! Considering the distinct difference in the decor of each room, I probably would go with your style. Each room is so different and each has its' unique characteristics; you will enjoy every one. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

My husband and I stayed ati the inn in November 2011. I had never stayed at an inn before so I did not know what to expect. Upon arrival, we were treated as if we were at someone's home, not just checking in to a room. The staff was awesome. The room we stayed in was named the Americana. It was everything I thought it would be and more! The soaking tub was great! The room was very comfortable and had the greatest personal touches. We will be going back as soon as possible. Thanks Bev & Rick, you are great hosts!!

Dear Rebecca, We are always pleased to initiate guests into the B&B experience and we are thankful that you had such a pleasurable stay with us. Also, thank you for mentioning our staff. We believe that the overall experience at the CLM is truly enhanced by our staff. Many ladies love the deep soaking and jetted tub in the Americana room. Hope to see you again when you need rest and relaxation. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

The inn exceeded our expectations in every way! Lovely inn both inside and out. Conveniently located, beautifully appointed rooms, delicious tea time snacks and breakfast. The staff was delightful and the guests were extremely friendly. We only had time for a short stay but it felt like we were away longer as it was so easy to relax. Just what we needed!

I recently spent a night at the Captain Lord Mansion in celebration of my husband's 30th birthday. From the moment we got there, we didn't want to leave. The staff was wonderful and accommodating, the rooms were gorgeous, and the breakfast was delicious. We met some amazing people, including a couple who had been there 47 times! Our only regret is that we only stayed for one night!! We can't wait for our next visit.

Virutally no detail or comfort has been forgotten at this lovely, sprawling B & B within walking distance of everything. From the cocoa dispenser in the lower hall, to the handy ring-holder next to the bed, to the heated marble bathroom floors, it was obvious that alot of thought and effort has gone into making this the kind of pampered getaway we all dream about. Our corner room was more ike a suite and we enjoyed the luxury of the loveseats by the fire (and the quiet neighborhood). Highlight was the towels ! Turkish cotton so thick and absorbent I went online and bought the same (pricey) brand when I got home. Lowlight was breakfast, which did not match the imaginative feasts I've had elsewhere.

Room Tip: Request a room facing the expansive front lawn and not the rear parking lot

Dear Framingham, Thank you for your very positive review which mentions many of the small touches you found here at the inn. My wife Bev is the one who continues to add little touches to the rooms to make each more comfortable and enjoyable. However, she is very careful not to overdo the decorating so that guests won't feel the rooms are cluttered or that there is not enough space for personal items. Rick Litchfield, Innkeeper
