“Leaf-peepers and loving it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2008

We stayed a couple of nights during a tour of New England in the fall. What we found was a charming hotel, well run by its management. Breakfast was great, not your eat-as-much-as-you-like but enough for us, and it was beautifully presented. A good selection of DVDs as well, for bedtime! (Well we are both quite old).

  • Liked — Everything
  • Disliked — Pricey at this season, but we expected it to be.

I wanted to provide a review of the Captain Fairfield Inn where we recently stayed in Kennebunkport, ME. We stayed at the Inn for two nights over the New Year’s Eve holiday. We were very pleased with our stay. It had a rustic feel, yet was also updated with modern conveniences. Jen and Peter (the resident innkeepers) were welcoming and made you feel comfortable and at home. They also offered to make our dinner reservations at the White Barn Inn (which by the way was one of our best meal and dining experiences ever).

We stayed in the Sweet Liberty room was very nice. It is on the second floor of the Inn and was bright and received a lot of natural light. The bathroom was also very nice as it has been recently renovated. The breakfasts were delicious as the service was great and Peter is such a good chef. The afternoon cookies were also very warm and tasted great.

As we were there during New Year’s Eve, Jen and Peter hosted an “innkeeper’s reception” where Peter and Jen made some very delicious appetizers…the Inn doesn’t have a liquor license and couldn’t provide alcohol, but that didn’t stop us from bringing down a bottle of champagne & wine and enjoying the appetizers.

All and all we had a great time and felt that the Inn was very nice and enjoyed our stay. We definitely want to go back and plan on staying at the Captain Fairfield Inn.

Stayed December 2007

The innkeepers were very attentive and willing to accommodate all our needs. They answered any questions we had prior to our stay promptly and by telephone, even when we emailed them. I would stay here again in the future. We stayed on New Years eve and they provided sparkling beverages, champagne flutes, and a few snacks which were waiting in our room upon our arrival.

My wife and I decided to give ourselves a trip for Christmas this year instead of individual gifts. The Captain Fairfield was one of the first Inns we saw online. We loved the look of the place from the website and called immediately to book our room. We could not have been happier with our experience. First of all, Peter and Jennifer are two of the nicest people you can meet. They are incredibly friendly and take meticulous care of the inn. Our room was spotless (and the gas fireplace truly made the room!) The breakfast was incredible! We stayed over during a snowstorm and awoke to find the walkways clear and our vehicle cleared of snow! The Inn is also just a short walk away from the shops and restaurants in Kennebunkport Center. Peter and Jennifer made my wife and I truly feel pampered. We cannot wait to book our next trip to the Captain Fairfield!

My husband and I stayed at the Captain Fairfield Inn for our 1 year anniversary (in September). I'm delayed in writing this but I guess no better day than New Year's to give credit where it is due. The Inn was exceptional. As the innkeepers showed us to our room (Library) the horse and carriage happened to be strolling by - it seemed like ths was staged....but it wasn't - this place was really that quaint. The room was clean and just as pictured on their website - we were so happy with it. We loved the daily, cooked to order breakfasts and the afternoon cookies. I would recommend the Captain Fairfield Inn to anyone looking an enjoyable, friendly, getaway to Kennebunkport.

  • Liked — Location is phenomenal - convenient to everything and such a quaint, friendly place.
  • Disliked — I didn't find the cookies until our second day!

What an excellent stay we had over a four night period. The hospitality was excellent, the food was outstanding and the room was very comfortable.
Lovely couple run the Inn, availble if you need them, but not intrusive.
The location is at the heart of Kennebunkport, easy walking to restaurants through the period streets.
First snow of the season whilst we were there, so this made it a magical setting.
Thanks for making us so welcome.

Will be going again next year, good luck to Peter and Jennifer.

Well, I had an opportunity to visit Kennebunkport in the winter, the quiet season as they say. I was a little concerned about how much there is to do up there but I figured we might do some cross-country skiing and shopping for the holidays. As far as I can tell, Kennebunkport is even better in the off-season than during the summer. There are no crowds, there is fine dining, there is shopping, and there are outdoor winter activities. On Saturday our resident innkeepers came to us early in the morning with the idea of taking a sleigh ride. Now, I have never done such a thing but figured what the heck. We were the only two people to arrive for the ride and so we were treated to a private ride, pulled by a single draught horse. As we rode along our guide brought the horse to a fast paced trot and so, indeed we did go dashing through the snow, in a one horse open sleigh. We had a lovely time, our innkeepers were lovely people, they were both thoughtful and attentive. The room, the Lois Walker, was romantic and when the conditions changed to a white out snow storm, we extended the stay another day and really enjoyed the weekend. We will be going back again next year as we really enjoyed our stay.
