“Most memorable B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel we were very special house guests in a beautiful home. The staff made it clear that they were there to address every need and request. The rooms are opulent and very comfortable. The artwork throughout the house was first rate. We especially liked our answer to our request for a bedtime snack of cereal, and we were allowed the freedom of the kitchen to enjoy that. The breakfast is beyond compare in quality and is more like a brunch. A nice wine and appetizers were available late in the afternoon and into the evening. The lawn and garden was a soothing location after travel and touring. We would love to return.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Captain Lord Mansion. They have thought of everything, down to the smallest detail. The service is top notch and the food is amazing. We enjoyed our time with the other guests and folks at the Captain Lord Mansion were very helpful to us in helping us plan excursions in the area. I would go back in a heartbeat and understand that during each season there are fabulous things going on in the area. We enjoyed it for a fall getaway and look forward to going sometime for the Christmas holidays, as we heard that the Mansion is totally decked out during that time of year.

Room Tip: We loved the Champion Room and found the bathroom to be particularly spectacular!

We loved our stay at the CLM! The room was very clean, well-appointed and quiet. Breakfast was delicious, and the lively conversations with other guests at breakfast was a fun way to start the day. The staff could not have been more friendly and accomodating. Our only concern was the very high bed in our room. It was a little too high for us seniors, but the staff did the best they could with trying to find an alternative. From now on, I will remember to ask about the bed. We loved this wonderful spot and will return sometime soon!

Dear Senior Reviewer, Thank you for your supportive review. Yes, many of our beds are original four-poster ones that are quite high. Although we provide step stools, some folks do find it difficult getting in and out of those beds. However, we also have many rooms which have lower beds; so, if a high bed is an issue, please be sure to inquire at the time of making your reservation. Bev and I work very hard to accommodate guest needs. Your innkeeepr, Rick Litchfield

I can't say enough wonderful things about our stay at CLM. The B&B is centrally located near the center of town. We stayed in the Mousmam room and it was more than adequate in size and had a lovely bathroom. The staff were great. I would recommend CLM for a romantic relaxing weekend. The bed was comfortable, but maybe the best part of the CLM was the breakfast. My boyfriend and I haven't had a breakfast like that in a long time! Yogurt and granola, raspberry pancakes, lemon poppyseed muffins, maple sausage, cheese potatoes, and an assortment of pastries.

When iy comes to B&B's Captain Lord's is at the top! Just a beautiful B&B, everything from the grounds, the rooms and every nook and cranny.
The staff was so very friendly. Our first trip to Kennebunkport but not our last for there or Captain Lord's.

The DeRenzo's

Room Tip: I don't think there is a bad room, we stayed in the Catcus Room, top floor but very pleasant.
