My friend and I had a great time at The Captain Lord Mansion. We wish that our stay had been longer than just one night. Wonderful room, wonderful service and wonderful breakfast! I plan to return with my husband someday soon. Thank you.

This was our 7th visit to CLM over a twenty- two year span and we continue to love this wonderful B&B. Living in Tennessee prevents more frequent visits, but our times there have always been fabulous. A CLM stay makes you feel like royalty.

My wife and I spent our anniversary at the mansion this past January (2015). My wife had been there almost 30 years ago and had always wanted me to experience it. She said it was as good if not better than she remembers. The accommodations were exceptional and the service top notch. Due to a snow storm and the time... More

My wife and I decided to book a room as a Christmas present. She found The Captain Lord Mansion and since we never stayed at a Bed & Breakfast Inn, we thought we would try it.

I can't say enough about the hospitality we felt during our 1st visit (3 nights). The room was clean and felt clean (bathroom has heated tile floors) and was well maintained. The whole inn felt good with many touches that make you feel at home, Had 1/2 bottle of Presecco on ice with chocolates on arrival. Small refrigerator with soft... More

Well, we just returned from our 14th stay at the Captain Lord Mansion! We stayed in the Champion Room which is one of my favorites for the double jetted tub in addition to the walk in shower. There is also an Italian wall fountain as a roman mural on the wall in the bathroom which provides a soothing & relaxing... More

On a much needed last minute getaway we returned ,once again , to our favorite B&B. We were informed that Bev and Rick received The Masters of New England Innkeeping Award. An honor bestowed by their peers. With all that said, no need to look further to find The Best B&B in Kennebunkport Hands Down. The Mansion is in the... More

We took advantage of the winter rate last weekend here at the mansion. We had not been here since 2009 and wondered why as soon as we checked in. It is so relaxing and every detail is taken care of. The staff is very friendly and the food is wonderful. When we got to our room there were fresh baked... More
