Everything about our three day stay at Captain Jefferds was perfect. The room was nicely decorated and very clean and cozy. The gas stove was not needed but would be nice to use in colder weather. The sun room was a relaxing area with ample coffee, drinks and snacks during the day. It is located a short walk from the...

After a bit of a whirlwind set of trips in the past month, we ended by spending 3 days at Captain Jefferds. The innkeepers came highly recommended by other innkeepers we know and we were not disappointed. Our room was in the front of the house but the little street is one-way and no real traffic comes through. So glad...

We appreciate your kind review and we are glad to hear we come recommended by other innkeepers! The best reviews are word of mouth (and trip advisor of course). We agree our location couldn't be any more perfect, being able to walk to anything in town but just far enough away from any real hustle and bustle that occurs during...

The Inn was simply delightful. The rooms were very clean, meticulously set, and truly lovely. The bedding was ridiculously soft and plush . . . the sheets were amazing. The thick towels were wonderful as well. It was a wonderfully romantic, fresh oasis for a quiet, relaxing weekend. The breakfasts were outstanding. All the staff were courteous and friendly. We...

This B & B is VERY special in many ways. The Staff, the accommodations, the breakfast, the grounds... ALL TOP SHELF. We stayed in one of the Inn's Pet Friendly rooms and was very impressed with how special they made our dog feel, even personalized pet treats!

We have been coming here going on 5 years now so this review is long overdue.

We arrived in the seasons first real snowstorm ... "The Inn" itself has incredible curb appeal ... you expect to see Robert Frost or Norman Rockwell as you enter, but it is even better ... you meet Sarah and Erik ... who attend to your every need in their Federal period built and furnished inn which is meticulously maintained ......

This was an easy and comfortable place to stay whilst in Kennebunkport. We shared the pavilion in the garden with another couple from our family and enjoyed the use of the private terrace/balcony. We used the free bicycles every day to explore the area and they were a great advantage. Breakfasts (which were in two sittings) were generous and well...
