“Lovely - Romantic - phenomenal food - Thanks Alana & Jed :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

This was our first time staying at the Captain Fairfield Inn - My Boyfriend (uhm… I mean Fiancé) and I booked a 2 night stay for a romantic weekend away following Valentine’s Day! We always enjoyed passing through Kennebunkport when traveling north from Boston but had yet to stay overnight. We were not disappointed; from the very moment we arrived we were impressed and pleased with our choice. We knew we would be arriving late to check in, so we called ahead and asked to have wine glasses left in our room so we could settle in with a glass of wine before bed. Upon our arrival we found not just the requested wine glasses but wine and cookies left in our room. We stayed in the James room which was exactly as the website describes; spacious with an amazingly comfortable pillow-top mattress, and a sleek, European style modern gas fireplace which kept the room warm and cozy. The next morning we were even more impressed with Alana and Jed for the three course breakfast was phenomenal; mouthwatering local fare with an elegant presentation. This romantic weekend away became even more memorable when just before heading to our couples massage at the Cottage Breeze Day Spa & Boutique, which Alana had arranged for us, my boyfriend proposed! When we returned Alana & Jed provided us with a small bottle of champagne to celebrate. We absolutely LOVED staying here and plan on coming back every year to celebrate our engagement anniversary!

Alana and Jed, you guys are such champs. From the moment we arrived, everything just fell into place for the ceremony and everyone was so comfortable the entire time we were there. I loved the fireplaces in every beautiful room, and our breakfasts were so delicious both days. Plus, you were both such accommodating hosts, getting everything we needed, from our favorite wine, to another possible notary public when ours unfortunately contracted a serious illness, to a caterer, to printing out new versions of our ceremony.
All of the common spaces are beautiful, and I won't forget the lounge where our ceremony took place as long as I live. The wine tasting room looked beautiful, I hope to provide some pictures soon. Really, thank you so much for maintaining such a beautiful place and being amazing hosts. We can't wait to come back for our anniversary (or maybe an anniversary and a half, so that we see it in the summer.
Oh, and its in a great location, walking distance to the beautiful shops and restaurants in Kennebunkport.

Room Tip: The library room is gorgeous, I felt like I was back in time (with all the modern amenities availabl...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for his birthday weekend and it was a great trip. The staff is extremely friendly, the rooms are extremely clean, modern remodels and the fireplace keeps everything toasty. I would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: I got this trip on Jetsetter ... totally worth the money

Great accommodations in a historic inn with modern ammenities and luxurious bedding at very competitive prices. The innkeepers Alana and Jed were very welcoming and helpful. Upon arrival and check-in we were treated to a complimentary glass of wine and our New Year's Eve included a champagne toast with others staying at the inn. Breakfast was superb and plentiful. The inn is located in a quiet residential area in the midst of several other inns and conveniently within a short walk to Dock square. We hope to return on our next visit to Kennebunkport.

Our stay at the Captain Fairfield Inn was absolutely fantastic. The innkeepers were super accommodating. The whole place was perfectly quaint with just the right touch of luxury. Room was perfect, fireplace in the room was a lovely addition. The included breakfasts were amazing, particularly the fresh maine blueberry pancakes. Plan to be making many returns here in the future.

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.
