We stayed only one night at the Capt. Jefferds Inn and were so sad that we had to leave! The staff and owners are very welcoming, the breakfast is delicious and beautifully presented, and the room was lovely with a private bath and working fireplace. We highly recommend this B&B for a warm and calming visit to Kennebunkport.
