“Delightful New England Inn”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

Our stay at the Captain Jefferds Inn was our second visit. It is a lovely well kept former sea captain's property. The staff is extremely attentive to the details that create an exceptional visit. It is clean, comfortable and updated. One of the most enjoyable pleasures is the three course served breakfast which is beautifully presented in the dining room. It is shared with other guests and nice to meet other travelers most of whom were repeat customers. The grounds are well maintained and there are several sitting areas inside and outside. It is nice to be able to walk to the village and enjoy the many restaurants without driving. We hope to return next fall.

Welcoming guests back to the inn is truly one of the most rewarding elements of what we do. We are so pleased to hear that your second visit was just as enjoyable as your first and appreciate knowing that breakfast is a particular hit. We try to put just as much care into the details of breakfast as we do in creating comfortable rooms. Everything we serve is made from scratch and the dining room layout encourages guests to turn the meal into an opportunity to meet people from all over the world. Thank you so much for your lovely review. We look forward to welcoming you back next fall and making your third visit a wonderful, relaxing getaway.

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

The Captain Jefferds Inn in Kennebunkport is a wonderful place to stay.  The decor is lovely and the feel of the Inn is so relaxing.  The location is convenient but yet peaceful.  You are in walking distance of shopping, sight seeing and eating.  The staff was extremely helpful and accomodating.  Breakfast was amazing and the afternoon teas looked very inviting.  We had such a good time but our visit was much to short.  The town and people of Kennebunkport were so welcoming. We hope to visit again soon.

Our second visit to this Kennebunkport gem. Beautiful home with very comfortable accommodations. Staff is exceptionally attuned to visitor's needs and very knowledgeable of the area's offerings. B&B is located only block from downtown shopping/touring area. Breakfast is served in community setting and well prepared and presented.

This was our first time at Capt. Jeffords Inn and we loved every minute of it. It's a beautiful property and no detail is overlooked. We stayed in the Monticello room which was a large room with a fireplace. We really enjoyed the fireplace and the king sized bed was very comfortable. Highly reccommend and hope to return very soon.

Room Tip: All the rooms looked wonderful!

We just spent five nights in the Vermont room and couldn't be more pleased. From the room, to the service, value, breakfast, decor, and location we rate it tops in all categories. If we travel to Kennebunkport again, Captain Jefferds is where we'll stay.

We wanted a very short walk to Dock Square and all the shops, restaurants and "action" but not right on top of it. Captain Jefferds fit the bill. Each day after sightseeing it was like coming home and I can't think of anything better than that.

Room Tip: If you have a dog, the Inn has four rooms to accomodate you. We don't have one, but the room wa...

We are so pleased to know that you had “five terrific nights” with us and enjoyed so many aspects of your stay! We have tried to create a setting that offers everything a person might desire to have a relaxing visit. Our location in a neighborhood of historic homes definitely offers a peaceful respite from the bustle of Dock Square, but as you mention, is still just a short walk away. It is wonderful that the inn felt like coming home after your explorations, that is exactly what we hope guests will experience. Thank you so much for your lovely review. We look forward to welcoming you back the next time your travels bring you to Kennebunkport!

This was our second time to the Capt. Jefferds Inn. The room we had on this visit was very small, though clean. However, we did book last minute so did not have a choice of rooms. The room we had previous was large and very comfortable. Unlike other inns we have been to, they do community seating at breakfast. It's a nice change and gets the guests talking with each other. Afternoon tea and breakfast are both enjoyable and food is good. Service is good, though didn't see the Inn Keepers as much this visit as we did our first time there. Perfect location for walking downtown.

Thank you for sharing your experience from your second time with us at the Captain Jefferds! We truly enjoy welcoming familiar faces back to the inn and feel like no compliment is higher than having guests return time after time. Each of our rooms have a unique personality and they come in a wide variety of sizes; ranging from very cozy to several that are around 380 square feet. Hopefully the next time you book a stay with us there will be enough lead time to get the room of your choice. We are always happy to describe rooms in depth to help guests make their best selection. We look forward to welcoming you back for visit number three!
