We recently spent two wonderful nights at The Captain Jefferds Inn. The CJI is our "go-to" place when we need to get away and recharge our batteries. This time we went with friends who had also been there before. We love the staff there ... everyone is so warm and friendly and can't do enough for you. There were brownies,... More

This inn was terrific in every way. Firstly, the inn is gorgeous, immaculate, and oh-so-comfortable. The innkeepers & staff are SO warm & friendly. Our room was beautiful and well appointed - fantastic gas fireplace (viewed from both the bedroom & the massive bathroom). Loved the huge shower w/ dual shower heads. Chef Dan presented great breakfasts each morning. Location... More

My second visit to Captain Jefferds Inn was just as wonderful as my first! The entire atmosphere is relaxing, the rooms are fabulous, and the staff is friendly and extremely accommodating. Breakfast was consistently delicious, and beautifully presented. Will be returning again next year with my family and am already looking forward to it!

Our room had a whirpool tub and separate shower. The room also had a fireplace, with all these amenities the room was cozy and romantic. It was a... More

Fabulous , well decorated & furnished home with all the creature comforts. Friendly innkeepers. Breakfast excellent. Two criticisms : would like a bath tub in our room (Monticello ) Don't order a cab to travel 1 mile .... It cost us $30 one way. The maitre de of the restaurant kindly gave us a lift back to the Inn

This is one of the first times I feel compelled to write a review even before I leave a property. This Veteran's Day the Captain Jefferds Inn opened their lovely bed and breakfast so veterans could have a complimentary stay. The inn is exceptional in every way. The staff is amazing and very personable. The owners went out of their... More

This is a great place for a restful stay in a spectacularly beautiful part of the world. We stayed three nights in July, 2014 and the experience could not be better. The Inn is very charming, wonderfully kept, and the staff and owners were unfailingly helpful, friendly, and attentive. The location is just far enough outside of the main part... More

If it's your fantasy to inhabit a Maine sea captain's home, rich with traditional furnishings, in a picturesque seacoast village, Captain Jefferds Inn will exceed all your expectations. The public rooms and our room (the Chatham) were beautifully decorated. The grounds are lovely. The shops and restaurants of the village are a short walk away. Erik, Sarah, and their staff... More

This is my second stay at Captain Jefferds Inn and I can't say enough wonderful things about this Inn. The rooms are beautiful and very relaxing. We stayed in the Assisi room and absolutely loved it. The breakfast is superb. Afternoon tea, cookies and hot mulled cider were provided and were a great treat when coming back from a day... More

All of the Inns we have stayed in during our visit to New England have been terrific, but this one was truly outstanding. Beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean with lovely breakfasts delivered by attentive staff and in walking distance of all of Kennebunkports restaurants and shops. We can't recommend it highly enough, particularly the lovely Kathleen who looked after us wonderfully,... More
