“Two thumbs up for Captain Fairfield”
Reviewed 9 March 2008

We spent a wonderful night at the Captain Fairfield. The Innkeepers are super friendly, very down to earth, and Peter is a wonderful chef - best breakfast I've had at a B&B. They kindly moved us into a room with a fireplace because it was available - everything was very tastefully done - very classy, not over-done place. We'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

My husband and I have stayed at the Captain Fairfield twice - once for our anniversary in December 2003 and again for my husband's birthday in April 2007. Both occasions were very memorable. We have enjoyed visiting Kennebunkport in the "off-season" and have really appreciated coming back to the warmth and comfort of the Captain Fairfield after a long day of exploring. The breakfasts are fantastic and the rooms we've stayed in have been very comfortable. The next time we head to Maine, we will definitely be stopping at the Captain Fairfield for a few nights.

This was our second time staying at the Captain Fairfield Inn and once again this hip, classy, New England B+B lived up to our every desire. As a young couple getting away from NYC for the weekend the CFI is always a splendid retreat with great amenities and always helpful suggestions for good dinners out. Call ahead of time and ask to speak with Leigh or Rob for their great advice. These two must eat out a fair amount because their descriptions and advice on food was bang-on. Thanks again to the CFI for all the "sexy" food and a great weekend.

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.

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!
