If we could give the Nathaniel Lord House 10 stars we would! This is the type of accommodation that we would love to have in all our travels. Virginia greeted us with a smile and provided us with valuable and fascinating information about the area through out our stay. The ladies in the kitchen served a luscious breakfast buffet. The aroma each morning through out the house made our mouths water. As for our room, it was furnished in dramatic period pieces - far beyond our expectations. We had the opportunity to view the other mansions in the collection and they were equally as magnificent. If you are visiting Kennebunkport, don't miss the opportunity to stay at these memorable historic homes.

Property's Favorite Review
Beautiful B&B in historic buildings, but with modern features. Perfectly located in a quiet part of town that is walking distance to main commercial area. Well worth the 5 stars. Also appreciated their environmental use of refillable bath soap/shampoo bottles rather than small plastic bottles. Breakfast was also delicious.

Anniversary weekend, enjoying the town of Kennebunkport. The accommodation was classy and cozy, with very welcoming hosts. We had the breakfast as well, which was homemade hot cross buns (celebrating Easter), and lovely quiche and pastries. I would highly recommend

This historic inn was beautifully decorated. The staff was so welcoming upon our arrival and throughout our stay. The breakfast was delicious and the inviting fire was lovely to sit by. The location was perfect for walking to the ocean and getting to restaurants and shops downtown.

This was our third stay at the Captain’s Collection. This time it was a midweek getaway for mother and daughter. Again, everything was wonderful. It was beautiful, clean, and charming in a sophisticated but comfortable way. The breakfasts and chocolate chip cookies are incredible. We look forward to another stay. We had a great lunch at Crew in Ogunquit, and a wonderful meal at Pedro’s.

The house we stayed in was wonderful. This is a collection of sea captain houses located within walking distance of each other. We stayed at the Jefferd House which is light and airy. The room was very comfortable with a fireplace. Since it was off season, we had the house to ourselves for most of the time we were there (4 nights). The breakfast in the main house was varied each morning including eggs, fruit, yogurt, muffins, etc. The staff was very pleasant and made us feel at home. Coffee and tea were available in the kitchen of the house throughout the day. Would definitely stay there again.

When deciding where to go for a few days for our get-a-way, we knew it would be back to the William Jefferds Inn at the Kennybunkport Captains Collection. My husband, our 3 dogs and I couldn't wait to get back to our huge suite with full kitchen and living room that we stayed in last year. It was exactly the same, just as clean and magnificent! The beds are like sleeping on clouds and our suite was larger than our house! The food, once again, was plentiful and delicious. The entire staff couldn't be more helpful and kind, They were always checking to see if they could get us anything, do anything or if we needed our rooms refreshed. The Kennebunkport Captains Collection is an absolute must to stay at if you're anywhere close to this neighborhood in Maine!

My husband and I spend a few nights here in January for a nice getaway and were not disappointed! The Nathaniel Lord mansion is a lovely old home, beautifully restored, and exceptionally comfortable. Our room was perfect: beautifully decorated, very comfortable bed, modern and spacious bathroom, very clean, and in a quiet and convenient location, within walking distance of the charming boutiques and restaurants in Kennebunkport Maine. We were treated to a delicious breakfast every morning and enjoyed chatting with their wonderful staff, all very friendly and helpful. Spend time in their cozy and spacious living room with a nice fire for warmth and atmosphere while you munch on their yummy freshly made cookies! We will be back! And we highly recommend, the Nathaniel Lord mansion!

What a fantastic set of old restored mansions. Our room was very cosy and the bed very comfortable. Breakfast provisions were good and a beautiful area to eat in. The lounge always had a fire running and background music for ambiance. The friendly helpful staff though not present in our house were only a short distance away. It is within walking distance to the quaint Kennebunkport. A great experience.
