This is a special place for my wife and I. This is our 4th visit and each time is perfect. Sarah and Eric run a first rate bed and breakfast in beautiful Kennebunkport. The breakfast's are always great and you can't wait for what awaits you the next morning. It is cozy, comfortable and a place you will never forget.... More

Thank you Sara and Eric for an incredible stay at your Inn. Rachel was wonderful, cookies and breakfast were fantastic. Our two dachshunds were welcomed and treated to moose shaped doggy biscuits, silver dog bowls and a huge yard to run and play. We stayed in the Baxter room Which was spectacular with a private entrance, a hot tub and... More

Tripadvisor plans our trip again. This has got to be one of the most beautiful inns that i have ever stayed in. Sarah and Eric have thought of everything: from the comfortable beds, bubble bath beside the tub, candles in the windows, books to read and chairs to read them in, fireplace. The entire Inn is steeped with history through... More

The Southern Maine Coast has plenty of charming destinations, and Kennebunkport is at the top, in my opinion. High-end without being stuffy, appealing to the tourist without being tacky, it's a beautiful place. Adjacent to the small shopping district is a lovely residential neighborhood, where inn after quaint inn is located. And it's there where Captain Jefferds stands out, possibly... More

George hi and thanks for the review. I just checked, 442 total reviews and 90% of them in the EXCELLENT category! Thanks for calling our attention to that! You mention curb appeal, I remember doing some recent historical research on the area, and although the long rounded fenced in corner of Pearl and Pleasant Streets has been replaced over the... More

I discovered the Captain Jefferds Inn 12 years ago when we had three babies and a fourth on the way. We only had 24 hours to be away and did not want to spend our few precious hours driving. I found this Inn online. I cannot give enough accolades to the wonderful people who own and run this little taste... More

Our much needed, romantic getaway weekend to Kennebunkport started with arriving at another inn, which we had booked months in advance, only to be told they mixed up our dates and booked us for a month later. Fortunately for us, that inn was full and sent us to the Captain Jefferds Inn. I am so thankful that a mistake brought... More

We stayed here for part of our honeymoon and were warmly greeted and given an upgrade to the master suite upon checking in. They were incredibly kind, the service was wonderful and the property itself is stunning.

Leah713 hi, Yes, Erik and Sarah are amazing but SHHH! we don't want to inflate their ego's (not that it could ever happen) :) The service you receive is really as a reflection of the service they give to everyone working here. Service doesn't get to this level without really special people at the lead. Breakfast...Yum! Did you know that... More
