We celebrated our 27th anniversary at the Captain Fairfield Inn (a Lark Property). We can't say enough about the innkeeper Jessica and her assistant Crystal. Everything that we requested we received and they are the most pleasant people that we have encountered in a very long time.. The inn is not opulent like the Captain Lord next door, but for... More

From the moment we phoned in our reservation to the actual arrival, our innkeeper Crystal, was extremely gracious and welcoming. We arrived late (11 PM) due to our 5 hour drive from New York and were pleasantly surprised to find a custom note at the front door welcoming us. The thing that stood out the most was the hospitality of... More

My girlfriend and I had a great weekend getaway to Captain Fairfield Inn! Jessica was very flexible with our reservation when we were stuck in Boston due to snow, and when we did make it up to the inn a few weeks later, it was well worth it! We were greeted with a tour of the accommodations and complimentary glasses... More

We had a great stay. The three course breakfast every morning was delicious, and the sea salt chocolate chip cookies were honestly the best cookies we ever had! Jessica had a nice wood fire burning in the common room ever night, plus we really enjoyed the gas fireplace in our room. The free coffee, tea, and soda were a definite... More

This inn is adorable. It's a three minute walk to the shops of kennebunkport yet it feels secluded and peaceful. We stayed here in the off season and received personal attention from Jessica, the innkeeper. Upon arrival we were greeted with wine and an iPad, stocked with places to shop, eat, and see. We were early and she had the... More

We arrived at the Captain Fairfield Inn late on a Friday evening to a personalized note from the innkeeper, Jessica. The warm glow of the lit candles and fireplaces provided a cozy juxtaposition to the snow and cold outside. The complimentary tea and cookies was such a nice touch! Our room was equally comfortable, and we loved the fireplace in... More

We have been staying at the Captain Fairfield for a weekend in January for the past several years. The fact that we keep returning speaks for itself.
