From the moment we walked through the door of the Captain Jerrerds Inn we felt very welcomed. Steve has such a nice easy way. Our room was charming and immaculate. The entire staff was friendly and professional. Captain Jefferds location is a short walk to a busy town, and a short drive to many wonderful attractions. Starting each day with... 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

We have just returned from a 30th wedding anniversary trip to New England and stayed in various inns in Massachusetts, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine. The Captain Jefferds was the stand out accommodation. Beautiful inn in an excellent location, 5 star service and we have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Apparent attention to detail makes a stay at The Captain Jefferd's Inn a most enjoyable and memorable experience. From a carefully prepared delectable breakfast to the comfort of sateen sheets at bedtime, innkeepers Sara and Erik Lindblom have made lodging at The Captain Jefferd's Inn a creme de la creme bed and breakfast experience in Kennebunkport, Maine.

We stayed in the River Green room. It was a great little room. You have your own air conditioner, so you control how your room feels. And there was a window on the ceiling above the bed, so you can admire the beauty of the Maine sky. The only complaint I had was that the bed was a little squeaky.... More

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.
