We arrived very late to a beautiful hand written welcome note on the door with directions to our room. The softly playing classical music as we entered the bedroom was just gorgeous. Breakfast was a treat with homemade scones, fruit and then a hot dish. The property is beautifully furnished, very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and the staff just wonderful. I... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2016

Great Inn for relaxing and enjoying Maine. Exquisite furnishings and immaculate. The inn keepers are experts at what they do and it shows in every aspect of the B&B. Walk into town -leave the car parked. Enjoy a variety of restaurants and then slip into the comfy beds at the Jefferds Inn! Five stars! More

This is our second visit, but it's been a long time in between. We came back because it was a gracious and pretty setting at that time and nothing has changed since then. We were escorted to a corner room with two comfortable chairs, large bed with smooth, soft sheets and fluffy feather pillows! The AC is regulated by temperature... More

Nicely decorated, comfortable inn with excellent breakfasts included. On a quiet street a short walk to the busy downtown area. Short drive to beach. We enjoyed Goose Rocks Beach. They have complimentary beach equipment (towels, chairs, umbrellas) and bikes for guests to use. Friendly, helpful staff.

I have high standards for where/how I spend my vacation dollars. And this was our seventh or eighth visit. We hardly need to say more than that...but I'll give you a few clues: It's a stunning setting with a friendly staff. All the little touches--cozy robes, fresh flowers, truffle on your pillow, spotless rooms, delightful breakfasts (more spicy sweet bacon,... More

We stayed for one night in the Vermont Suite. Terrific room with great Feng Shui and a wonderfully comfortable bed dressed in the softest bed linens I have enjoyed to date. Spotlessly clean, sweetly appointed and all the extra touches were a pleasure; free beverages, Lindt Truffle at bed time, great town and restaurant guide materials, lovely magazines to peruse,...

Then this is the BnB for you. Absolutely beautiful home situated just blocks from the lovely yet quaint downtown area. Excellent breakfast too. Very friendly staff and wonderful, caring owners. You'd be hard pressed to find better accommodations.
