“Great stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

Had a one night stay where my wife and I truly enjoyed our night. The innkeepers truly go out of their way to ensure a good experience. The bed linens were excellent and the entire place was quiet for a restful stay. The blueberry pancakes were wonderful; we had a late breakfast and they made a point cook extra bacon even though they had run out. We stayed in the Sweet Liberty room and the best part of it was a GREAT shower! It offered a lot of natural sunlight and the queen size bed was comfortable. Would stay there again!!!

Room Tip: Sweet Liberty had a great shower and nice bed linens.

We are so pleased that you had a pleasant and restful stay. We appreciate the compliment on Jed's blueberry pancakes (a signature of our Maine inn!) and we are thrilled that you enjoyed the comfort and streaming sunlight of the Sweet Liberty room. Please consider Captain Fairfield Inn again that next time your travels bring you to New England.

This may be the best B&B I have ever stayed in. It was truly lovely in every way and the inn keeper's where so helpful and friendly. Upon arrival we are greeted with smiles and tips on how to spend our limited and rare time in the area. It was our one night way from our 2 small children at home. The location of the inn is perfect for exploring Kennebunkport and it is nestled in a wonderful neighborhood within walking distance to all the shops. The inn is decorated with modern flair which is fun and the room was very comfortable. I personally loved the full pantry and bottles of wines for purchase at a reasonable price, great idea! Coffee and breakfast in the morning was delicious!

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a very good experience. The staff is incredibly helpful, location is perfect (walking distance from most places), rooms are clean and plush.
Highlight of the stay was the breakfast - the best we had during our entire US trip. Kitchen is open 24 hours for tea/coffee/water/soft drinks. Place has a very homelike feeling.
Our request to serve breakfast in the garden was promptly fulfilled (though the garden could do with a few sun umbrellas).
Though slightly expensive for a B&B, highly recommended to anyone travelling to Kennebunkport.

We appreciate your thoughtful review. It is thrilling to hear that we offered you the best breakfast of your trip (in all of the US!). Jed and Alana are terrific resident managers. We are so glad you enjoyed their service, our great location in the heart of Kennebunkport, our clean and comfy rooms, and your special breakfast in the garden.

We had an exceptionally delightful experience at this quaint, with a modern twist, inn! Great location with a short walk to a variety of eateries, shops and day excursions. Innkeepers were very approachable and helpful, providing each guest with an IPad loaded with pertinent apps to seek out restaurants and things to do. The inn has been beautifully maintained and is immaculate. The breakfast choices were exceptional each morning, making the decision to choose a difficult one. We definitely would stay at the Capt Fairfield Inn again!

Location was perfect to walk into town. It was nice to have actual parking spaces instead of street parking. Breakfast was gourmet... Way better than anything you could get in a local restaurant. Room was clean and bed extra plush and comfy for a getaway. The staff was amazing and incredibly helpful. I'd recommend this b&b to everyone .

We stayed 2 nights and we loved it!!! Beautiful house, beautiful gardens and very comfortable room! The only complaint I have about this b&b is the loud air conditioning unit in the window... but it's part of staying in this beautiful, historic house! Loved the glass if wine when we arrived, breakfast was delicious, personnel was very nice and helpful. Would stay there again!!! If you go, make sure you eat at The Lobster pound in Ogunquit! The best!!!!!

My wife and I greatly enjoyed our stay at the Captain Fairfield Inn, Kennebunkport, Maine. After all, if you're going to Maine, why not stay in the stately home of a sea Captain? The house was gorgeous. Our ground-floor room was tastefully decorated and included a small sitting area. Breakfasts were filling and delicious. The hosts were friendly and helped us plan our daily site-seeing itinerary. The Inn is a short walk from the town centre and close to several good restaurants. And Kennebunkport is not only a very pretty town, it's a good home base for visiting attractions, including some great, rugged sea coast locations. We'd stay there again any time.
