It has been a few years since we've stayed at CLM, and boy were we glad to come back. It has been a long time since we've experienced the wonderful personal service offered at this very comfortable and elegant place. For the first time, we stayed in the adjacent house in the Susan room, and it was very comfortable. The... More

Upon arrival to Captain Lord's Mansion, we realized that there are two different buildings that comprise this bed and breakfast: the main mansion and the garden house. Both buildings were very well kept with beautiful surroundings but the main building(the mansion) is the most charming one. I didn't realized that I had make a reservation for a room in the... More

We first discovered Captain Lord Mansion ten years ago on our honeymoon. We stayed in the Nathaniel Room in the Guest House then. We were so impressed by the service, food, and accommodations that we made the effort to return for our tenth anniversary. We were not disappointed. This time we stayed in the Captain's Suite in the main house.... More

We stayed here two nights towards the end of our trip, what a wonderful place. The staff were anxious to look after my dietary requirements and made amendments to their truly memorable breakfasts, so much to eat at breakfast taken communally that lunch is not Needed. Seconds walk to Kennebunk Main Street with bars, restaurants and quality shops made for... More

We just returned from three days at the Inn. When we first arrived we were greeted by Tim who gave us a tour of the home including it's history -which we found very interesting.

Dear Boca Raton, Thank you for your nice review. Our breakfast cooks really do a wonderful job of providing well-prepared and filling breakfasts. The choices always include freshly squeezed OJ, fresh fruit, muesli cereal, a fat-free yogurt as well as entrees such as the stuffed french toast you enjoyed! Glad you mentioned just relaxing because the inn's grounds and public... More

When we arrived, we were happy to say the parking was right at the B&B, no parking blocks away. The grounds and exterior are kept in great shape. We where greeted and were shown around the B&B. Everything was explained well and then we where taken to our room. Wow! the photos online don't do justice to seeing in person.... More

Dear Monroe, LA, Thank you for your positive review and mentioning that folks should make their bedding requests known.

In fact, the staff also inquires about dietary restrictions, allergies and whether or not guest are celebrating an event such as a birthday or anniversary because we offer... More

We broke down an hour away and it was 9:45 and the police couldn't get us back, and the owners came and picked us up. They were great people and really nice.

Great location; lovely walk to nearby town with lots of shops and restaurants. The grounds were well kept and a nice place to sit and relax. Room was spacious and nicely decorated.

We were celebrating our 52nd. anniversary and traveling with friends who were celebrating their 50th. The choice of Captain Lord Mansion was terrific. The location, close to town while still off the main road, was great. We were greeted by the owner and a very congenial staff. The rooms were beautifully decorated and appointed with everything we could hope to... More
