We had been staying at Captain Fairfield for many years, in all the seasons but winter. After a two year absence, it was great to be back "home". The atmosphere is relaxed and peaceful. Jessica greeted us with a complimentary glass of wine upon our arrival, which was something new for us. Our room, Sweet Liberty, was comfortable and spacious,... More

Just back from a stay at the Captain Fairfield Inn in Kennebunkport. My husband and I stayed there for a week as our summer holiday. We only had a week's holiday this summer and wanted something intensively relaxing. The Captain Fairfield Inn is in a great location. It is a 5 minute walk into town, but is still in a... More

We stayed for 3 nights at this B&B in August and really enjoyed our stay. I find that some B&B's can feel a little antiquated which isn't really my style...but I loved the modern amenities and decor at Captain Fairfield's. While the decor was updated, the inn still had charm and traditional elements as well. We received an iPad when... More

We recently stayed 3 nights at this B&B. It is in the town, but on a very quiet street. It is a very easy walk into the heart of Kennebunkport where there are lots of stores and restaurants. The B&B is very nice, the rooms are spacious, and they serve excellent breakfasts. The people who work there are great. You... More

We stayed here in July 2014 for two nights on our weekend trip to Maine. The location in Kennebunkport is perfect. Nice quiet street - within walking distance of the main street.

Very cool that you caught the Shakespeare play on The Green during your stay! Our Kennebunkport inn does have a stellar location in a peaceful spot, yet so close to all the action in Dock Square.

We stayed at the Captain Fairfield Inn from 7/19/14-7/21/14 and our only complaint is that we had to leave. The innkeepers Jed and Jessica were extremely attentive. Jed's breakfasts were phenomenal, the location of the inn was perfect...a short walk to town, shops and restaurants. We stayed in the Lark Suite which was beautifully decorated, the linens were heavenly and... More

Beautifully decorated with very helpful managers. Well placed near the center but in a quiet street off the main drag, easy to walk to everywhere. We liked all the small extras like the iPads, the homemade cookies and cold drinks and coffee always available. Faultless and so much nicer than the chintzy overpriced Inn we stayed in on Martha's Vinyard.... More
