This was our first visit to the Captain Jefferds Inn. We were in a lovely room on the third floor. The Inn was immaculate. Breakfast was superb, and we were even asked for any dietary restrictions. Afternoon tea and lemonade was accompanied by delicious cookies, chips and dip, in the beautiful sun room. The location of the Inn was perfect.... More

Absolutely beautiful property! Walking distance to town. Accommodating for those of us who like to travel with our dog. Wonderful snacks, cookies and coffee out all thru out the day. Many gardens and sitting areas to just sit back and relax. We will definitely return to this property!!

Capt. Jefferds Inn took us back in time. It is a beautifully restored early 19th century home in a residential area, walking distance to many restaurants and shops. Our first floor room had a fireplace and large windows overlooking the gardens. There was a sunny porch where various teas, coffee, lemonade and snacks were served. Breakfast was lavish and delicious.... More

Captain Jefferds is a very nice B&B very close to the center of town. It was a few blocks away from shopping and restaurants. The Inn was very "homey" and clean. We appreciated the many extras that were included- bikes we could use to ride around town, water, tea,soda and coffee available all day, and cookies, lemonade and snacks. The... More

We recently returned from another stay at the Captain Jefferds Inn. Again, and as usual, the property, accommodations and service were top notch. We most definitely plan on returning this fall. The only suggestion I would make to an otherwise flawless stay is that Sarah and Erik reconsider their breakfast menu. Many of us are watching our weight, and in... More

We went back to this jewel after almost 20 years. It is perfectly located in Kennebunkport. You can walk to town and many restaurants. The new owners have done a wonderful job fixing the place up. Many amenities have been added and the staff is very nice and helpful. The only thing we found missing from our previous visits was... More

My husband and I stayed at the Captain Jefferds Inn for 2 nights and could not have been happier with our experience there. The Inn is on a quiet street about 2 blocks from the center of town, so it's very convenient. Our room was extremely spacious and had every amenity you would expect - including a private bathroom. The... More

Excellent accommodations, superb and friendly staff. You could not find a better Bed and Breakfast. Their attention to the finest details were truly amazing, totally exceeded our expectations. The ambiance is so soothing you'd think you stepped back in time to the colonial era. Our only regrets are that we couldn't spend more time. The owners and the staff are... More

All I can say is what a fabulous Inn to spend time at. It exceeded all of my expectation. You will never find a friendlier or more lovely Inn and property. Everything was perfect, from our welcome,to the beautiful room which was sparkling clean to the wonderful gourmet breakfast. We are so happy we made the choice to stay here.... More
