“Great trip!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

We had a geat time at this B&B in Maine inspite of the 6" of snow we woke up to our first morning. Weather was bad but the B&B was terrific. They provided everything we needed -- even cleaned all the snow from all the cars.
Breakfast was outstanding both mornings. The room was very comfortable and use of the house added to the homey feeling. Great people -- staff & owner & other guests. Thank you Captain Lord !

Dear Boston, Thank you for your positive review. Yes, we clean everyone's car off each time it snows. What was the last B&B you stayed at that offered that service! We appreciate your mention of the "homey feeling"; we try to make all our guests feel welcome and at home. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

The room was spacious and luxurious. The ambiance around the mansion was delightful. The breakfast was exceptional. Everything was immaculate, the staff was super-friendly and the Calender Room where we stayed was a great choice. The heated bathroom floor just puts the Lord Mansion over the top! I would absolutely return . . .

Dear Peabody, Thank you for your positive review. I am surprised that more reviewers do not mention the heated bathroom floors. Bev and I loved the idea so much that we added heated floors to our bath at home! Hope to see you again soon. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

Lived up to all the reviews. A wonderful friendly place to stay. We stayed in the Calender room and it was stunning. You can be private but the joy of the Inn is meeting the other visitors many of whom go back time and time again. We met some lovely people who told us what to see in the area. The cook is a wonderful person as well a wonderful cook who gave us a big hug when we left. She is very willing to share her cooking secrets with the guests.

Room Tip: The Calender room is stunning. The shower is wonderful.

We stayed 3 differnet B&B's on our recent trip to Maine and Captain Lord's was the best !! We were made to feel welcome & at home from the moment we arrived. Kudos to the staff !! The home is beautifully appointed, our room was very clean, spacious and cozy and just wonderful ! Oh my, the breakfasts were absolutely delicious and I enjoyed every morsel ! Snacks are always available too. I am hard to please and my expectations were exceeded. I would definitely stay there again and highly recommend this B&B !!

Dear Atlanta, Thank you for your very positive review. Several other recent reviewers also mentioned that they immediately "felt welcome". We try very hard to make sure of that feeling from the moment you arrive in our parking lot. Most days in season and on weekends year round we have a porter who greets you at the driveway and helps with luggage. Then we have an engaging group of receptionists to help familiarize you with the public areas of the inn. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

This was our second stay after our last one in 2008. This Inn only got better since our last visit, and we loved it then. Every detail is thought of, the beds are wonderfully comfortable and cozy, with great bedding. Heated floor in the bathroom, decent toiletries and big towels are all nice touches. There are cookies upon arrival in the room and snacks throughout the day in the main areas of the Inn. Lots of places to relax on the grounds is also nice. Location is perfect - just a few blocks from the center of town.

Downsides are limited space to store belongings in the chach-ka filled room, early morning noise from the cleaning staff and the communal breakfast. We are morning people and don't enjoy making small talk with strangers at that time of day.

Dear Diane, Thank you for your supportive review. Additionally, we appreciate your constructive suggestions. We have reviewed your complaint about noise from our cleaning staff with them to induce them to be more quiet and mindful of guests need for quiet early in the mornings. Additionally, we have removed a number of decorative items that caused clutter in the rooms. We hope on your 3rd visit that you will see and appreciate these changes. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

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!
