Dear Fairhaven, My hometown was Fairhaven; I graduated from Fairhaven High! Thank you for your positive review. We receive so many repeat guests over the holidays that it is like "Old Home Reunion" time. It is fun to see folks the same time each year. See you next Christmas! Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

We confirm all the other reviews, and we can't speak too highly about the Captain Lord, Its not just the attention to detail, the beautiful rooms.the staff, the breakfasts, shall we go on, Its the quiet touches that make The mansion. The area where complimentary gift wrapping was available to wrap those last minute presents, The gift basket in our room on Christmas morning Our car was cleaned of snow ready for us to go out The Captain Lord made our first Christmas away from home very special Its a great pity we live so far away
Thank you Bev and Rick and your dedicated staff

Room Tip: We stayed in the Garden house a little quieter and this suited us and our friends perfectly

Dear Joyce, Thank you for your review. Yes, many guests do prefer the Captain's Garden House to the main inn because it is smaller (4 rooms) and perhaps a little more intimate. However, as you note, it lacks none of the hospitality and attention to detail found in the Captain Lord Mansion building. We do hope to see you again. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

Best bet in a B&B. Had a wonderful time. Cant wait to come back. Best linens, best staff, best food = best experience. Will be back again and again. Be as friendly or as reclusive as you like. Cocktails by your private fireplace or in the parlor with others...the choices are endless and you will wish you didn't have to leave.

Room Tip: Any room will serve you well.

Dear Minnesota, A sincere "Thank you" for your glowing review. The Captain Lord Mansion guest rooms are larger than most B&Bs, yet we also have many private places where guests may relax and enjoy a glass of wine. Many folks like to retreat to the Cupola to enjoy the view from there. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

We always have a wonderful experience at the Captain Lord Mansion. The rooms are gorgeous and the CLM and Kennebunkport are beautiful with decorations at this time of year. But what really is outstanding is the staff. The rooms are always spotless and Chef Sue is amazing. I was recently diagnosed with gluten and soy sensitivities and Sue did a wonderful job to make sure my breakfasts were just as great as for everyone. Thanks Sue!

Just returned from our 7th visit to the CLM. Each stay makes it feel even more like our "home away from home". Our last 6 visits have been at Christmas time, and it's a wonderful season to enjoy and discover Kennebunkport - you miss some of the seasonal shops and outdoor activities, but the trade off reward is a quieter, less crowded, more relaxed time. Simply put, we love it here. Each of our stays has been in a different room, and we haven't been disappointed yet - every room has its own individual charms. The breakfasts are excellent, the accommodations warm, cozy and inviting, and (most importantly) every single staff member bends over backwards to help you have a perfect visit. The atmosphere at the CLM encourages you to talk and mix with other visitors - we've spent many joyful nights in the cozy sitting room, by the fireplace and beautiful Christmas tree, making new friends and enjoying old ones company. The CLM sets the bar pretty high; it's become the standard we judge every other B&B experience by. Go, relax, eat, laugh, enjoy!

The Inn is very welcoming..rooms are beautifully appointed, beds and sheets are to die for!! The breakfast could keep you going all day without another morsel...and it's delicious. Friendly and helpful staff. Perfect location. We were here during Christmas and could feel the Spirit during our entire stay. Highly recommend the Captain Lord.

Dear North Carolina, Thank you for your positive review, especially about our breakfasts. We always cook enough for seconds and thirds! That way, many guests do skip lunch. We hope to host you again some day soon. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
