My husband and I stayed here for two nights in July. We loved being able to walk into town or through the adjoining neighborhood. The Inn, the rooms and the grounds are absolutely gorgeous and immaculate. The Inn keepers were friendly and helpful and as stated by others, the breakfasts were superb! There was nothing about this experience that wasn't... More

We hope you will be back next year too! Thank you for your review! When we were buying the CJI, almost 12 years ago now (my does time fly) one of the reasons we fell in love with the inn was because of its location.

This was our first night in an extended trip through New England in the fall and it could not have started nicer. This Inn epitomizes everything you may imagine a New England B&B should be. The Inn is within walking distance to the water and the downtown shopping area. The Inn itself was impeccably kept. Our suite had bathroom included,... More

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights while we did a bike tour of Kennebunkport. It was so nice to return to the Inn after a long day of riding and have cold drinks and wonderful snacks waiting for us!

This is a long time coming, we stayed here a few months ago and really enjoyed ourselves even with 80% of the surrounding towns being closed. When you drive up to this house, you feel like you are back in time. The surrounding homes as well as Cap’t Jeff are very large and kept to the time period. There is... More

My fiancée and I stayed in the Baxter room for three nights in mid-July. What a romantic setting!
