“They've thought of everything”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

We had a wonderful stay at Captain Jefferds Inn a few weekends ago. We brought our dog and stayed in a lovely room. The provided the dog with bowls for food and water, extra towels, a treat, and even a tennis ball to play with. For us there was plentiful food and drink, luxury accommodations, and heavenly sheets. Seriously, the sheets were awesome. The breakfast was also great and the Inn is very conveniently located. We'll definitely be back!

Room Tip: We stayed in the terrace room, it's great if you have a dog and easy to get into the main hotel.

It is wonderful to know that you and your dog felt welcomed and maybe even a little pampered. We have tried to think of touches that will make the guest experience special for both our two- and four-legged guests, so it is gratifying to hear that they helped make your visit enjoyable. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience. We can’t wait to welcome you back!

Wishing you the best, Sarah and Erik, Keepers of the Captain Jefferds Inn

We spent only one night at Captain Jefferds, but we enjoyed it so much we plan to return. The inn is lovely with spacious public rooms filled with light from a multitude of windows on the main floor. The owners, Erik and Sarah, are wonderful hosts, and their staff is great. We stayed in the Arundel room which is a very pretty, large, quiet room on the second floor of the main house.

We stayed only one night at the Capt. Jefferds Inn and were so sad that we had to leave! The staff and owners are very welcoming, the breakfast is delicious and beautifully presented, and the room was lovely with a private bath and working fireplace. We highly recommend this B&B for a warm and calming visit to Kennebunkport.

Room Tip: If you want a real New England feel to the room, reserve one with a working fireplace.

My husband & I stayed at Captain Jefferds for a mini-honeymoon following our wedding. The Inn is beautiful and the staff are so friendly and down-to-earth. You feel pampered being there...from the delicious breakfasts to the evening cookies and cider...not to mention the beautiful rooms. The Arundel room that we stayed in was really impressive - and the cleaning staff were kind enough to let us peek in a few other rooms after other guests had checked out, so we could see that so many of the rooms have such a comfortable yet elegant Victorian charm to them. We stayed there in the off-season, but were still able to enjoy some of the local shops and had a fun horse-drawn sleigh ride at a nearby farm. The staff were very helpful with dinner recommendations and accomodating about dietary restrictions for breakfast too. The other guests we met were friendly and it was nice to chat with them at the group breakfasts - though if you get to breakfast early enough there are a couple private tables for two if you're looking for a more intimate breakfast experience. We recommend this B&B for any season, any occasion.

This was a special anniversary gift from our daughter. What a wonderful treat. Breakfast was outstanding. There was also much to choose from for afternoon tea. If you are looking for a relaxing, quiet stay, Captain Jefferds is for you. It was a great place to get our batteries recharged. Looking forward to a return visit.

We have visited Kennebunkport many times and stayed in a number of b&bs in the area. The Captain Jefferds Inn is by far our favorite! Everything is amazing at this inn! The rooms as well as the common areas are beautiful and welcoming. Breakfasts are delicious! The owners and staff are so warm and hospitable. Can't imagine staying anywhere else! Looking forward to returning later this year for what will be our 6th stay at this incredible inn!
