“What a Great Inn!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2007

The Captain Fairfield Inn was wonderful. We so enjoyed our stay in a lovely, comfortable room in a terrific part of Kennebunkport, near everything. Rob and Leigh went out of their way to be helpful and cordial and we found them to be the perfect host and hostess, along with their dear dog Riley. They put together an amazing, delicious gourmet breakfast both mornings we were there. They were eager to recommend restaurants, which we also enjoyed. We truly hated to leave and look very forward to returning soon.

We just visited Kennebunkport and stayed at the Captain Fairfield Inn. What a beautiful, charming Inn. The innkeepers, Leigh and Rob were wonderful. They know the area very well and were helpful with ideas on places to visit and restaurants to try. The rooms at the Captain Fairfield Inn are spacious and decorated beautifully with every modern convenience. Perfect for the romantic getaway we were hoping for. We highly recommend The Captain Fairfield Inn and their amazing breakfast!

We recently stayed at the Captain Fairfield Inn. This is our second time there and we hope to return every year! We love the quaintness of the inn and the innkeepers, Leigh and Rob, are fabulous, very friendly, and extremely helpful. The room had everything we needed and was so clean, comfortable, and cozy. The breakfast leaves nothing to be desired - absolutely delicious! - and the afternoon chocolate chip cookies are a favorite of ours! This is a great place to get away for a couple of days, we only wish we could have stayed longer! We always feel right at home and Kennebunkport is a beautiful little town that has everything from great restaurants to excellent shopping to quiet walks on the beach. It's our hope to stay in every room at the Captain Fairfield Inn so that we can experience what each one has to offer! If you're looking for a wonderful place to get away, this is definitely it!

My wife and I chose the Captain Fairfield for our first trip to Maine mainly because of the address ... no really, we did. I used to live on Pleasant St in Connecticut and the inn is on Pleasant St as well. The gods were speaking. Well they spoke well. We loved this place. We're new to the B&B scene so we are novices when it comes to them and don't have much of a personal database to compare against, but we know when we like a place. Our room was nice and spacious and the wireless internet was a great plus (my feelings on WIFI is that it is a must nowadays since so much research and planning can be done with the internet so when a small inn like this one has it - woo hoo!) The breakfasts were delicious and the owners/hosts/cooks were very nice and talented. The location is great - just far enough from town to not be bothered by any crowds and close enough to walk in for dinner or sightseeing. There is an abundance of inns in Kennebunkport, but I would definitely recommend this one.

My husband and I stayed 2 nights at the Captain Fairfield Inn and loved every minute. We stayed in the Polly Lord Suite. The room was spotless and the Aveda accessories in the bathroom were great.
Breakfast each morning was excellent! The innkeeepers couldn't have been friendlier and were very happy to give directions or assist us in any way. Delicious chocolate chip cookies are out on one of the dining room tables each afternoon. Recommend highly. Would definitely stay there again.

The stay exceeded every expecation we placed on the B&B. We are huge fans of B&B's in New England, but Rob & Leigh's Captain Fairfield Inn sets the standard. They are extremely welcoming and relaxing. Their website does not do these rooms justice. The rooms are larger than they appear. The beds are the most comfortable we've stayed in, the linens are high quality, the soaps and shampoos in the baths are exceptional, the recommendations the innskeepers give are good, and oh yeah, the breakfast is superb. The house is gorgeous and has old architectural style, a big plus for us. When in the Kennebunks, we will not stay anywhere else but here!!! Rob & Leigh, thank you for a grand introduction to Maine.

My husband and I recently returned from a one-night stay at the Captain Fairfield Inn, the last stop on a whirl-wind tour of coastal Maine. We highly recommend this inn for a homey and comfortable experience right in the center of Kennebunkport.

The most impressive aspects of the inn are the hosts themselves, Rob and Leigh. We arrived on a busy, yet colder and rainy afternoon, but were warmly welcomed by both hosts who, independently of each other, congratulated us on our tenth anniversary. Personal touches like that always go a long way, yet they did even more. From arranging wonderful dinner reservations to mapping out excursions to even bringing their dog, Riley, out for a little quality time with these dog-lover travelers, Rob and Leigh are most gracious hosts. Most importantly, the pair prepared breakfast at an earlier hour for us due to our morning flight out of Portland. It was clear that these innkeepers truly care about their guests and we certainly appreciated their attention to detail.

The room met all expectations, was quiet with a very comfortable bed and wonderful flat-screen TV, which on a rainy evening was most welcome (and they also have a DVD movie library). We also found useful the book of area restaurant reviews written by past guests of the inn.

We only wish we had had more time in Kennebunkport, and we would certainly recommend the Captain Fairfield Inn to anyone.
