Our much needed, romantic getaway weekend to Kennebunkport started with arriving at another inn, which we had booked months in advance, only to be told they mixed up our dates and booked us for a month later. Fortunately for us, that inn was full and sent us to the Captain Jefferds Inn. I am so thankful that a mistake brought...

This was our first time staying at a B&B. This inn is so charming and elegant and the innkeepers are very friendly and welcoming.

I figured I'd splurge and stay here with my fiance last July. I'm so glad I did. We both loved it. Upon arrival, we were shown around the inn by one of the extremely friendly staff.

Absolutely perfectly appointed inn circa early 1800's. Big comfy beds, delicious 3 course breakfast, walk to shops, water. And this dog friendly place had bowls & towels & a personalized dog biscuit. It is impossible to improve. We are definitely coming back this summer.

Aileyfan hi! Yeah we can get a bit obsessive with the dogs, but when you have your own it becomes more than an accommodation to make to our guest.
