We stayed here last minute as a birthday getaway...What a surprise! Beautiful, old 9 room Inn 1 street up from Kennebunk river and dockyard square. We were greeted cheerfully by Jessica who was amazing. We were given an IPAD at check in for our personal use with all sorts of info about the surrounding area for our convenience. Walking up...

Has a wonderful night at Captain Fairfield. Got into town early and was able to check in early. Room was clean and cozy. We missed breakfast in the morning and they left it wrapped up in a basket in front of our door to enjoy on our own time.

This very charming and welcoming inn combines a lovely mix of old and new.The building itself retains a sense of history whilst the rooms are luxuriously well-appointed with a more modern feel. The beds are incredibly comfortable and the room amenities were well thought and the rooms were whisper quiet. Captain Fairfield Inn is in a fantastic location. We parked... More

My husband and I just got back from a 2 night stay/last minute getaway from kids, etc... We were very pleased. We love Kennebunkport and visit every year in the summer for our anniversary. We always stay at the top high end resort(closes in winter) so we weren't sure what to expect with this inn. I have to tell you... More

We booked a reservation at the Captain Fairfield Inn on the same day of the trip, and received wonderful service. The 200 year old home was decorated beautifully for the holidays, bring out the antique charm of the house with the comfort of modern touches. We will definitely be making this an annual visit.

Our Second Thanksgiving at the Captain Fairfield, fabulous, low key comfy and warm. The innkeepers provided an informal fireside reception the snowy evening before the holiday and in spite of a regional power outage in the morning managed coffee and a simple breakfast. The accommodations are crisp, clean and tastefully updated. This was the second of what we hope to... More

This is a modern B&B at its best! No stuffiness here. WONDERFUL friendly service, so polite and helpful. Very well decorated/updated Victorian B&B with artsy wall paper, fun decor. The plush parlor with the toasty fire in November was lovely. Our bed and other furniture were very comfy. Great to have an Apple TV and iPad at our disposal in... More

We arrived in a snowstorm the day before Thanksgiving, the Inn very nice, but not the least bit cozy. No fall seasonal decorations, nor any Christmas lights, as it seemed like so much of the area had, i.e. The Captain Lord Inn across the street, where we have also stayed, and so cozy, and comfortable. The living room comfortable, but... More

We are so sorry to hear that the omelet wasn't to your taste and we certainly hate hearing that you continued to be cold despite our efforts to bump up the heat in our tasting room. As a group of 4 on a full weekend that included one overflow guest, we thought your group would be most comfortable seated together.... More

Had a great escape after spending Thanksgiving with family. Breakfast was delicious, coffee great. Our room was very comfortable, nice bed and linens. There was a power loss for several hours, but the gas fireplace in our room kept us cozy. The staff was very professional and friendly and cleaned the snow off of the cars in the morning!

Thank you for your kind words and for your patience and understanding during our power outage. We are so pleased that you had a lovely post-Thanksgiving getaway here at Captain Fairfield Inn and that you found Room 9 to be quiet and cozy. Please visit again the next time you need to escape to southern Maine. More

We have been several times to the Captain Fairfield and fall in love with it more every visit. It has the classic New England vibe with modern decor. The beds are super comfortable, and it is always so peaceful. We love sitting by the fireplace on cool winter nights. We also appreciate that they pay attention to the small details.... More
