We had a great stay at Captain Jefferds. The room was beautiful and very well decorated. The bed was absolutely amazing. Every breakfast was tasty and different. Our hosts were very helpful during the entire stay. It was great to have access to bikes and parking permits for all beaches. We would recommend this hotel to anyone. One thing to note, you are not walking distance from the beach, but a few minutes from the village.

We are so happy to hear that you had a great stay with us and that you found the inn to be beautiful and peaceful! It is nice to know that you particularly enjoyed the bed. We have tried to create the ideal sleep system that combines plush mattresses with silky soft sheets, so it is wonderful to hear that you found it amazingly comfortable. Thank you so much for your kind words and recommendation! We hope to welcome you back again soon.

All the best, Sarah and Erik, Keepers of the Captain Jefferds Inn

Loved the Captain Jefferds Inn! Only complaint was that we only stayed for one night on our way back from a camping trip to Acadia. If you're looking for somewhere peaceful to stay while in Maine, this is your place. We brought our dog with us and they made her feel as comfortable as us. The dog biscuit with her name on it in the room was a nice touch. Will definitely come back next time were' in town

Room Tip: If you're bringing your dog to Maine, this is the place to stay.

As we drove up to Captain Jefferds, I immediately felt confident that we had booked the right place. The beautifully manicured lawn, outdoor patios surrounded by flower gardens made my husband and I feel like we were at a special retreat. The manager greeted us by name as we walked in the door for the first time, and made us feel at home. The rooms are just as they are shown online, if not better, and very clean. The sheets are incredibly soft. Each morning they provide a delicious, homemade, and very creative 3-course meal. My favorite meal was the apricot stuffed french toast and sweet and spicy bacon. They also provide bottled water, sodas, and snacks, which was an added bonus as we were coming and going throughout the day. One of my favorite experiences of the stay was taking 2 of the available Captain Jeffers bikes down to Mother's beach for the afternoon. The staff packed us towels in a backpack so it made traveling easy, and we didn't have to deal with parking. But if you prefer to drive to the local beaches, they will provide you with passes that cover the cost of parking. Oh! And don't leave kennebunkport without trying Rococo ice cream at the end of Spring Street downtown... we went there every evening to see what new flavors they had created thanks to a recommendation by one of the other guests.

Captain Jefferds made our time in Kennebunkport much more special than if we had stayed anywhere else. I am already looking forward to when we can return again.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Camden room, and it was beautiful.

We are so pleased to hear that you immediately felt right at home at the inn and that you had a special stay with us. Our hope is to offer warm, friendly service in a setting that is comfortable and welcoming. It sounds like we hit all the right notes for you. It is gratifying to know that you enjoyed the little touches we offer, like three-course made-from-scratch breakfasts, beach cruiser bicycles, beach towels, and complimentary drinks and snacks. We heartily agree that Rococo is a can't miss destination. Their creamy, Argentinean-style ice cream is some of the smoothest, most uniquely flavorful ice cream we have ever encountered. Thank you so much for your enthusiastic review, we look forward to your next visit!

Best wishes, Sarah and Erin, Keepers of the Captain Jefferds Inn

Thank you very much for one of the most memorable experiences in our short 5-year marriage. We stayed in the Baxter Room and will request more than just 1 night on our next trip to Kennebunkport! We also missed an amazing breakfast (they packed us delicious blueberry muffins to go) mainly because the bed was just way too comfortable. The inn, the grounds, the location, and the wonderful four-season room to have snacks and wine in were exceptional. Even though there are many high-class bed and breakfasts inns just a stones throw away, we will make Jefferds our go-to place for years to come.

We stayed 3 nights at Captain Jefferds Inn while vacationing in Maine, This was our first time in Maine and our first time staying at a Bed & Breakfast. Our experience could not have been better. From the time we arrived we felt right at home. We stayed in the Terrace room and it was beautiful and immaculate. The sheets on the bed were the best! And the robes were an added bonus! Each breakfast we had was delicious and served by a friendly staff. The location of the Inn was perfect. It was with-in walking distance from everything in town, yet in a quiet neighborhood. If we return to Kennebunkport, we will definitely stay at Captain Jefferds Inn!

Room Tip: Terrace Room was great as it had a side entrance from the outside of the Inn.

We are thrilled to hear that your first stay at a bed and breakfast and your first visit to Maine were so enjoyable and proud that we played a part in making the experience special! Thank you so much for all of your kind words. It is wonderful to know that you found the sheets divine and the meals delicious. It is certainly our hope that little touches like silky soft sheets and plush robes will add elements of luxury to our guests' stay. Of course breakfast is one of the stars of the show, so we whip up fresh, made-from-scratch creations each morning. Hopefully the breakfasts were the perfect fuel for getting out to explore everything that area has to offer. We look forward to welcoming you back the next time your travels bring you to Kennebunkport!

Warmest wishes, Sarah and Erik, Keepers of the Captain Jefferds Inn
