“Nice stay during Prelude weekend in December!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 January 2014

Alana welcomed us with an early check in and a glass of wine. It was so close to all the shops and happenings in Kennebunkport during the Holiday prelude. The breakfast of blueberry pancakes the next day was delicious! Jed and another gentlemen cleaned off our car after a snowstorm dumped 12 inches on the town the night before! We felt well taken care of!

That snow storm was a doozie, wasn't it!? We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay at our Kennebunkport boutique inn during Christmas Prelude, that you enjoyed our blueberry pancakes and most of all that you felt well taken care of! That means a lot. Please come stay with us again soon.

We are regular travelers to southern Maine and Captain Fairfield Inn is our #1 choice for accommodation. Rooms are beautiful and clean, friendliness and service are unsurpassed, location is perfect for walking to shops, restaurants, etc. Capt. Fairfield is a good choice for couples, friends traveling together, and possibly families. (I have stayed on 2 separate occasions with a teen and, later, a pre-teen.) Also perfect for a quick "Mom's Getaway." Do not pass up an opportunity to stay here.

Room Tip: Each room is average-to-large for a B&B. Rooms on the 2nd floor are quieter. Rooms on 2nd fl...

We had a lovely stay at Captain Fairfield Inn. The location was excellent, the breakfast outrageously good and our hosts, almost too nice to be true:) We were provided with judicious advise whenever asked. I would highly recommand.

We had been planning to go to Kennebunkport for a while and decided to take advantage of Jetsetter deal to stay at Captain Fairfield Inn.
Our visit was outstanding. We went as a group of four. We were greeted with a glass of wine upon checkin and spent the afternoon relaxing by the fireplace at the inn. They had a surprisingly nice wine list at very affordable prices (not marked up 4x like you find in other hotels). The innkeepers gave us great recommendations for dinner, all of which were within walking distance to the hotel.
The highlights of the visit included all the thoughtful details at the inn. The interior design was very modern and clean. If you are looking for an alternative to old, stuffy bed and breakfasts, you will love this place. The only negative was how loud our room was in the morning. We stayed right by the staircase, right above the kitchen and were woken up by 7-8am. But the delicious breakfast made up for it. It was a wonderful visit all around. We look forward to going back.

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room. We stayed right by the staircase, above the kitchen area and were woken up at...

It's great to read your comments on our wine list. We are proud of the great selection we've been able to put together with a very low markup. Your thoughts on our modern decor and cozy living room with fireplace also mean a lot. We strive hard to make our inn the chic, boutique choice of places to stay in Kennebunkport. Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your Main getaway to Captain Fairfield Inn.

My husband and I spent a weekend at the Captain Fairfield Inn and we were delighted with our stay. The Innkeepers were warm and welcoming. Upon arrival we were given an IPad containing all sorts of wonderful information. We relaxed in the living room by the fire before heading out to dinner. The Inn is so conveniently located - we walked to restaurants and shops! As it was a cold fall weekend, we did not take advantage of the beautiful yard! The room was spacious and very comfortable and had a wonderful fireplace to add to the ambience. Breakfast was fantastic and we were greeted with warmth and friendliness. Alana and Jed made the stay extra special.

We highly recommend the Captain Fairfield Inn.

We love seeing the word "delighted" in a review. What better way is there to describe a stay at a Lark Hotel? We are so pleased that you enjoyed the iPad filled with local, Kennebunkport activities and attractions, our great location so close to Dock Square and all the shops and restaurants, and most of all, the service of Jed & Alana. Please visit our Kennebunkport boutique inn again soon.

My boyfriend and I recently stayed here through a discounted price on Rue La La. What an amazing place. From the moment we walked in we were treated like family, ready with a glass of wine, for us, recommendations for dinner and offering to take our bags to our rooms. The innkeepers were top notch and extremely hospitable. Our room was immaculate and very tastefully decorated - not your grandmother's B&B. It was so quiet we couldn't believe the entire inn was booked. The gourmet breakfasts in the morning were amazing as were the afternoon cookies. But our favorite had to be sitting by a roaring fire in the early evening with a bottle of wine. Amazing! We will definitely return and would highly recommend staying here to anyone looking for a relaxing and to antic getaway.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 9 and loved it. Very private and quiet.

Oh. . .we soooo love comments that describe us as "not your grandmother's B&B!" Our boutique, chic inn is anything but, so it's a great compliment. (However, we are confident your grandma would love it!). Thank you for your kind words and for describing your romantic getaway to Kennebunkport in such glowing terms. We are so pleased that you loved the roaring fire, afternoon cookies, wine and, most of all, Jed and Alana's top-notch service. We look forward to seeing you again the next time your travels bring you to Maine.
