“A great little gem of a place”
Reviewed 24 June 2013

We only have good things to say about Captain Fairfield Inn. Great location near town. A gracious restored home with touches of contemporary and modern juxtaposed with history. Comfortable bed. Great shower. Fantastic three course breakfast. We hung out for a few hours in the morning in the garden reading and relaxing. We definitely would like to return here to stay longer and explore more.

It is kind of you to call Captain Fairfield a "gem." We often think of our boutique Kennebunkport inn that way! We appreciate your lovely review and are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We look forward to your return visit.

We recently stayed at the Captain Fairfield Inn. It was a lovely inn. Great hosts, great breakfast. The rooms were very quiet. They had a great mix of traditional and modern eclectic in all but one room which was very traditional. The beds were extremely comfortable too. I went with family and we reserved the traditional room for Dad and he loved it. Very convenient to town and an overall great recommendation.

Room Tip: The Vinyard vines room had a nice sitting area when entering the room.

Excellent Inn, so clean and beautiful. As we registered we received an iPad for the remainder of our stay. Breakfast was delicious and snack pantry outstanding. Wether you're in the mood for a cold beverage, coffee, tea or wine, it's all available. Also, great location to center of town. We have stayed there twice and will definitely be back!!!!

We had a one night stay, but wish it could have been longer. The Inn Keeper was extremely friendly and helpful, the room was VERY quite and comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious.

Located in a quite neighborhood conveniently located to restaurants and shops.

Would stay here again if in the area again.

This B&B was lovely in so many ways. The inn itself was beautifully decorated and maintained. We stayed in room #6 which was a good size and had a setee as well as a small table and chair. The aircon was a little noisy at times but it has been in a number of places we've stayed. The Wifi was excellent and reliable and the iPad they give you on checkin was full of places to see, eat and things to do. The innkeepers themselves were really nice and very helpful. Breakfasts were tasty and there was always fruit then a scone, popover or madelain provided followed by a choice of hot breakfast. While we were there we enjoyed waffles, crepes, scrambles egg with goats cheese and toast, omelate and sausage. The coffee at breakfast was great and they provided a lovely range of teas, cookies and coffee during the day and evening that guests could help themselves too. The honour bar for wines and beers was a good idea and the DVD library was a nice touch for rainy days or days when you just want to relax. We hope to return to this lovely place.

It is so nice to get great comments about our coffee. Roasted by Maine's own Coffee by Design, it is a staple here at Captain Fairfield Inn. We know how important great coffee is to a getaway! So glad you enjoyed our three-course breakfasts and made full use of our iPad with local information. We look forward to our next stay at our Kennebunkport boutique inn!

We decided to do a quick overnight for my birthday. Having been to the Attwater, the Newport, RI, Lark Hotel we thought we would try a Maine Lark. Captain Fairfield did not disappoint. Innkeepers, Alana & Jed were both so gracious and helpful. The Inn is an old federal style home with all the quaintness of traditional early Federal - center front entrance with stairs, beautiful wide plank hardwood floors and moldings mixed with the contemporary (super comfy beds, plush linens, modern bathrooms). There is a lovely sitting room if you need to get out of your room and the breakfast room is great for groups, singles or couples. I love the honor bar beer and wine kitchen area - even though we did not use it - it is nice to know you have the option of grabbing something anytime.

We stayed in the Breakwater room and it was quite spacious, loved the couch as an alternative sitting spot. You get lost in the oversized bed and I loved the gas fireplace even though it was too warm to use. The outdoor seating area with fire pit was lovely to look out onto. The Inn location is perfect - just outside of town and a block from the river. We walked all over and then sat in the beautiful garden just off the green by the Inn. Breakfast is 3-courses...alot of food but so worth it - we had delicious citrus salad, then homemade coffee cake (complete with candle for my birthday) and scrambled eggs with herbs and feta! Juice was mix of pineapple, apple and orange and coffee nice and strong! We truly felt so refreshed. Highly recommend a visit.

Room Tip: Our room was great but I would have loved one of the suites with the bath option. We booked last mi...

It was such a pleasure reading your review. We are pleased that you came to stay with us after visiting The Attwater, our sister property in Newport. If you haven't already done so, you may want to join our "On a Lark" Club. We are pleased that you connected with our mix of traditional and bold modern design style and that you loved our comfy beds and great location. Best of all - it is great to hear that you felt truly refreshed after visiting us. That's what we are aiming for! Hope to see you back here at Captain Fairfield or at another Lark Hotels property soon!

The wife and I spent 2 days here without the kids and really enjoyed it. It's close enough to walk to the shops and restaurants and even over the bridge to Kennebunk. There is a small park close by and seem to be a few similar B&B's around but it still had a neighborhood feel. We stayed in the main house, room #9 which was plenty big and had a cheese plate and craft beer waiting when we arrived. It was great and really enough for 4 people. The innkeeper was younger than I expected (I guess I've gotten used to retirement aged people) but very professional and helpful. She welcomed us and gave us an Ipad to navigate the area with icons for areas of interest. My only complaint is that the room was far enough that the Wifi connection was hit or miss. Minor yes but made it less useful. Breakfast was a few courses, some small but very tasty with a lot of locally sourced ingredients and the coffee was good (key to me at a B&B). They have an honor policy with beer and snacks on the main floor so if you want a late night beverage you can grab on (which we did) and pay later. It was a quiet spot and little noise from guests around you. As others state, it has a mix of old and new design, both traditional and modern, which we liked but some prefer one or the other. Overall highly recommend.

Thank you for your kind and thoughtful review. We are glad you enjoyed the iPad and our proximity to Dock Square and the local restaurants. So happy you took advantage of the honor bar and enjoyed Jed and Alana's hospitality. Also thanks for the heads up on our WIFI booster for the second floor. We will look into that. we hope you will return to Captain Fairfield In the next time your travels bring you north.
