“relaxing awesomeness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

The Captain Fairfield Inn was such a wonderful stay. Could not have asked for a more responsive staff as I am a vegan and they kindly changed their menu/made sure that they had vegan food available. There is a great mix of room available to suit anyones tastes. Ours was a contemporary with a gas fireplace, flatscreen t.v. and a lounge chair that could not have been more comfortable to enjoy some wine on the rainy day that we arrived. It was our first visit but will definitely not be our last.

Room Tip: Use their website to help you find a room that suits your personality/style.

From the first moment of arrival we were greeted and treated as most welcomed guests. The accommodations were superb.
The rooms were fresh and well appointed. The linens were Frette and we luxuriated in their comfort.
The food was all first rate with very fresh juices, breads and creatively prepared courses. The coffee was great.
Each afternoon we were greeted by homemade cookies and hot drinks which hit the spot.
The resident inn keepers. Alana and Jed were genuinely nice, friendly and were always willing to do more to ensure that our experience at the Captain Fairfield Inn was memorable and wonderful.
My wife and I would return, in a heart beat, to this most enjoyable inn.

We arrived during a snowstorm and the Inn could not have been more charming or inviting. Our room, "The Library" was spectacular!!! Complete with King bed, couch, and gas fireplace [flat screen above]. The Inn keepers were delightful and the breakfast was delicious. Each room is given an Ipad upon arrival which contains area restaurant info, sights, shops, and newspapers. Definitely a nice touch. Highly recommended!

Room Tip: We LOVED the "Library" room on the first floor. Charming!!!!

After staying in many inns in Kennebunkport over the years, we finally found our home away from home. The Captain Fairfield Inn abounds with the most perfect 24/7 hospitality possible. We loved the mix of contemporary and traditional furnishings found in the common areas as well as the private rooms. Our first visit for the Christmas Prelude, we chose to stay in one of the recently renovated contemporary rooms. On the return visit, we opted for a more traditional room complete with 12 inch wide pine plank floors. Both rooms had gas fireplaces and flat screen tv's. French press coffee was always available; yummy homemade cookies were served each afternoon, courtesy of Alana, and Jed served a choice of two unique breakfasts each morning!

The inn is located in a nice central Kennebunkport location, which makes walking to the town center convenient. A fire was burning every evening in the common sitting area. We looked forward to warming in front of it each evening after we returned from dinner.

Overall, it would be difficult to report anything at the Captain Fairfield Inn that didn't meet our needs and standards. So I'll just finish by leaving this review with a five star rating, thanks to Jed and Alana!

Room Tip: Each room is unique in that the inn offers different size beds, a variety of mattress types, and a c...

My husband and I had the best weekend at this Inn as we visited the town's Christmas Prelude events. As fun as the events were, this B&B was the star of the show! Hosts Alana and Jed could not have been more gracious and personable and served the best and most varied breakfasts! The fires, wine, cheese, fruit and crackers served in the afternoon encouraged guests and hosts to get to know each other and really served to make everyone feel right at home. We could walk to the center of town in about 8 minutes, which was also a plus. We did not want to leave and are sure to return!

The Captain Fairfield Inn is one of the best bed and breakfast we have ever been. Alana and Jed are very attentive innkeepers. The breakfast was always delicious. The design of the Inn is very tasteful and the location is excellent. A quiet neighborhood but walking distance to the centre of Kennebunkport. If we are again in this region we will certainly stay there again.

We arrived at the Inn for a return visit, knowing the Innkeepers had changed. First, the location of the Inn in a beautiful historic area of old homes; quiet location, but walkable to shops and restaurants! Receiving an iPad loaded with local restaurants, shops, and things to do, plus Internet availability, was outstanding and a service we hadn't encountered before. We used it extensively. The room was very clean and cozy - a little on the small side, but we appreciated the new and very comfy King bed. (We missed the antiques, but they aren't always very comfortable!) We loved the gas stove in our room, kept things nice and cozy. Alannah and Jed were very warm, helpful, and great Innkeepers, providing wine (to purchase) and snacks for our first evening. The breakfasts were delicious, and the pretty dining room with sliding glass out to a garden with the morning sun was inviting. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
