This is still, by far, my favorite place in Kennebunkport. The rooms are spotless and the service is wonderful. You feel at home. There's help when you need it, coffee and snacks when you need them. And the bonus is that you can walk to downtown Kennebunkport to great restaurants like Hurricane and all the cute little shops. My other... More

Warmly greeted by the owner, who then took the time to show us all around the inn. Fresh baked goods, tea, coffee, and other refreshments available 24 hours a day. Tastefully decorated, with everything in tip top shape. Breakfast was excellent, with special dietary requirements accomodated. All in all, it could not have been more perfect.

Unfortunately could only stay one night in this superb inn. Wish we could have stayed longer. Everything is perfect about this former sea captain's home. Loved the breakfast and generosity of the always available tea, coffee and treats. Do not miss this one!

My boyfriend and i stayed in The Katahdin room for 1 night during our vacation. It was a very cozy room on the 3rd floor. It wasn't busy since it was off season so it felt like we had the whole place to ourself. Breakfast was wonderful!! Sweet and spicy bacon, marinated pears, and raspberry pancakes. YUM!!

We spent two wonderful days/nights at this dog-friendly inn, which is a four block walk to downtown Kennybunkport. Our room was immaculate, the innkeepers very friendly and the breakfasts to die for. Highly recommended.

My hubby and I are from WA and visited the East Coast for 3 weeks in April. We only had one night at this lovely B&B and I'm really sorry! We should have had more time.

All three of our rooms were charming. The innkeepers were very friendly and helpful. A refrigerator in the common area was filled with complimentary sodas and waters and the afternoon cookies and cheese were a welcome respite. The inn is centrally located in Kennebunkport and were were able to walk to wonderful restaurants for lunch and dinner

A girls weekend at the Captain Jefferds Inn is such a great idea! Lots of restaurants and shops very close by, not to mention a great way to experience three different rooms here at the Inn!

Extreme clean, beautiful to a fault, a stay here is a chance to recharge away from the hustle of the city. Quiet, a fireplace in our room, wood burning in the living room fireplace, with an enjoyable multi course breakfast, the Capt Jefferds is a winner. Dinner selection abound within a short walk with water views. We'll see you there... More
