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. Near a small park - that had a Shakespeare play one evening while we were there. We stayed in the James Room. Comfortable room. Quiet - never heard... More

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're so pleased that Jed's inventive breakfasts were a hit with you and that you found the James room to be comfortable and quiet.... More

This B&B in Kennebunkport was the perfect place to stay. It was at a good location for us to walk. The B&B had the perfect mix of traditional with contemporary. We were warmly greeted by Jessica and provided with a tour of the hotel along with an IPad to use during our stay. We were offered a complimentary glass of... More

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

The Captain Fairfield had many of the nice touches you would expect from a New England B and B. Breakfasts were exquisite 3 course meals. There were complimentary sodas and cookies waiting, a sitting room/library and comfortable chairs outside (not to mention cornhole). The staff were very nice as well and always trying to acocmodate us. We had our 4... More

We are so pleased that you had a great visit and enjoyed all the wonderful amenities and services of our Kennebunkport inn. The issue with extra guests and our rooms is that our Certificate of Occupancy explicitly states that Room 8 is the only room that is allowed to have more than two people. This is based on Kennebunkport fire... More

This little bed and breakfast was everything I had hoped for this trip with my mom. Excellent wine list, wonderful service! If you're looking for a girls weekend or a romantic getaway, this is the place for you. The breakfast was amazing! The outdoor area with Adirondack chairs is great for good conversation.

Really nice room. Apple TV and provided iPad are great amenities. Breakfast was fantastic and light each morning and the innkeepers were super helpful with recommendations, beach passes, and even provided beach chairs.

We had a great stay here. We like B&Bs but get put off by the "grandma" decor. Not here! Modern decor in a historic building. All the guests the day we were there appeared to be young professional couples like us. There's a great space outside for relaxing that doesn't appear in any of the site photos. A quick walk... More

You're right. No "grandma" decor here -- unless your grandma has a keen, modern fashion sense (which many do!). We're glad you enjoyed your stay and made the most of our outdoor lounge and central location to the heart of Kennebunkport. Thanks for your review and for staying at our Kennebunkport inn. Catch you next time you head east! More

We had a truly lovely time at the Captain Fairfield Inn! From the moment we arrived, the entire staff was exceedingly warm and welcoming. Jessica gave us great recommendations for local spas, sailing trips, restaurants, and wine from the Inn's selection. The grounds and house are beautiful. We enjoyed the eclectic decor and its nod to tradition in equal measure.... More

We had a thoroughly fantastic stay at Captain Fairfield Inn during the week of July 4th. Admittedly, we were at first reticent at the idea of an inn/b&b (us being hip & young and all) but with a referral from Jetsetter and generally stellar reviews, we decided to give it a go. We definitely made the right decision. The accommodations... More

So glad we could impress your hip young selves! Our whole approach is to offer a bold modern style in an historic home, with fresh new amenities for today's traveler, but with a sense of old-fashioned hospitality. Sounds like it hit the mark for you and we are so glad. The Lark Suite is a serene haven and we are... More
