I chose this hotel as it offered something slightly different in Kennebunkport. It is historical yet modern and very functional. We had a comfortable room and made the most of the location - easy walking distance into the port. Great grounds for relaxing in the sun and really good tapas style breakfast. It is also small - many of the... More

Friendly staff! Beautiful grounds (the outside firepits and couches are incredible). Quick walk into town or just to the water. My fiance and I enjoyed the Rachel room but I am sure we would have enjoyed any room at this place. Gas fireplace. Comfortable bed (so comfortable I got the tag information so I can buy myself one). Even the... More

What a great hotel! The people were awesome, the room was cool and comfortable, the location was perfect, the breakfast was amazing, the free coffee and tea were delicious...I could go on and on. I honestly can't wait to go back. The innkeeper - Jessica, I believe - was incredibly bubbly and kind. The room had cool decor, lots of... More

Location is great and staff is very friendly, but overall is just okay; better to spend the extra money and stay across at Captain Lord. Main room is disappointing; not inviting at all. Rooms don't really hit the modern mark; oddly decorated and bed frame was bigger than mattress which made it difficult to get in and out of bed.... More

We're pleased you had a friendly staff experience at our Kennebunkport inn and we're sorry that our design just didn't seem to match your style. We strive to present a chic, modern take on a historic inn (while keeping the many of the charms of the historic property). We're also sorry to hear that you weren't a fan of the... More

Found the Capt Fairifield Inn, via Jetsetter, so we knew we'd be in for a special experience. The Inn was just as expected...stylish, warm, friendly, in an excellent location. Husband booked the Lark Suite as a special surprise, due to its amazing bathroom with soaking tub. The space is enormous, with beautiful built-ins, high ceilings, a fireplace, a super comfy... More

We're thrilled to hear you had such a great stay at our Kennebunkport inn - the Lark Suite is indeed a beautiful room (with a great bathroom!), and our hosts there, Jessica and Crystal, are fantastic and welcoming. We are indeed sorry to hear you felt restrained at breakfast... the idea behind our "curated small plates" is variety - the... More

Our stay at the Captain Fairfield Inn was by far one of the most accommodating, comfortable and lush experiences in all of our travels and to top it off, some of the best staff I've encountered. Jess and Crystal truly made our stay extra special, by giving us a room by room tour of the property and explaining some of... More

Jessica and Crystal run Captain Fairfield Inn as if they were hosting you as extended family. Both Innkeepers were charming and hospitable in every way possible. My partner and I loved the Captain Fairfield Room in which we stayed (#4) although each room has been carefully decorated to suit the space. The bed was incredibly comfortable and the blackout shades... More

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
