We've been to the Captain Jefferds Inn numerous times over the years to celebrate my birthday and have never been disappointed, and this stay was no exception. The property is impeccably maintained, the rooms are beautifully decorated and the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Upon arriving, following a major snow storm, we were greeted by the owners Sarah and Eric... More

We travel to New England in the winter to enjoy the snow and avoid the crowds. When we stayed at the Captain Jefferds Inn, we were the only guests there. But you would have though the inn was ready for every room to be occupied. All the outsides lights were on, there was a fire doing in the dining room... More

A Saturday night stay with my sister could not have been better than at the Captain Jefferds Inn. From the superior bedding and linens, to the cozy fireplace and gourmet gluten-free breakfast, this Inn continues to be one of my favorites. A special thanks to Erik, Sarah and Steve for the warm welcome. Of course, I look forward to my... More

What an incredible experience. From the moment I booked the room with Steve to the welcome we received from Rachel, we could have not have even imagined a lovelier time in Maine. The Inn itself is beautiful, the room spacious and spotless and the fireplace was one of the highlights of our stay. My significant other and I were celebrating... More

My husband and I were in Boston in mid-November for business and decided to take a last-minute drive up the coast to Kennebunkport, where I vacationed every summer as a child. We started calling inns and B&Bs in town along the way to secure a place to stay for the night. We spoke with Steve, who was extremely friendly and... More

My wife and I took a very special trip to Kennebunkport around New Years. The staff at Captain Jefferds are warm, welcoming and go out of their way to make your stay great. The food is wonderful, the Inn is beautiful - we'll be back for certain!

My wife and I stayed at this most impressive inn in October and can thoroughly recommend it. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome and the standard of the accommodation, service and attention to detail was outstanding. We were offered the choice of two sittings for a delicious three course breakfast, which was taken in... More

We stayed at the Captain Jefferd's Inn for the first week of our honeymoon 3 years ago and it was simply wonderful. We just stayed there again this past weekend for a post-holiday getaway and it was just as good! Erik and Sarah and their staff are so friendly and relaxed - nothing pretentious or stuffy at all - down... More

We loved our stay here, although the room we had was a bit small. We did meet other guests there who had much larger rooms, so it was just our room. The linens in this inn are the softest, thickest ever! We actually purchased the sheets and had them shipped to us at home in Va Beach. Nothing has ever... More

Captain Jefferds Inn has been in our family for many years now. We've celebrated early Christmas and landmark birthdays here with our growing family house in 3 to 4 suites and rooms. We feel so at home in our suites as well as the common rooms in the main house. Nothing quite as lovely as sitting in the living in... More
