“Beautiful Property and Excellent Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

We usually stay away from BandBs because we prefer to come and go at our leisure and don't want to eat breakfast with strangers but this place may have changed our minds. Very, very well maintained and gracious staff. Breakfast wad great and they sundries available. Lovely sun room to read the paper as well

Room Tip: The Baxter Room was very private

Emerson_MM Thank you for taking the time to write a review and sharing your feelings. We all fuss over the condition of the Inn and are happy read the hard work rewarded by your comments. The sun room is a favorite spot in the house as it is open, spacious and yet private. Together with the patio outside the terrace room it is a nice spot to enjoy the sounds of the birds, a cool breeze, the warmth of the sun or unwind in the evening hours.

I hope you choose to return to us soon for another getaway.

Cheers

We are already planning our next stay at Captain Jefferd’s Inn while still under the spell of our too short three night stay at this B&B of refinement, beauty and excellence. The most gracious hospitality, cosy and bright rooms decorated with taste and elegance, attention paid to the smallest details, delicious breakfasts, highly professionnal care generously extended to all your needs. A real gem, this place has to be the best in the Kennybunkport-Ogunquit area, where you can rely on such forethought to comfort and promises kept of a peaceful, high quality vacation. Thank you, Erik and Sarah, and all members of your dedicated team, indeed we shall be coming back over and over. Jean and Georgette from Québec City.

Room Tip: The Arundel suite was our perfect "home away from home"

We were able to stay here with the Bed and Breakfast for Veterans Day program. Erik and Sarah opened up their Inn to 10 veterans and their spouses and the generosity of these kind people amazed me. Their Inn is absolutely gorgeous. Our room (Chatham) very clean and tastefully decorated and well maintained and very close to the shops in town. The room was extremely comfortable with robes, beautiful sheets, fireplace, and it had a large bathroom with all the amenities. I cannot say enough good things about this Inn. The breakfast was beautiful and delicious and the service was fantastic. The wine and cheese reception was so nice in that we got to meet the other veterans and hear their stories. It was over and above Erik and Sarah and Jeff and I thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We wish you the very best of health and we will recommend the Captain Jefferds Inn to everyone.

Sylviafly hi! So happy you enjoyed your stay with us. When we do it, the wine and cheese reception is a fun event which gives our guests the opportunity to get to know each other, happy you had the opportunity to be part of it.

This is our third year with the Veterans special as promoted by a larger innkeeper group we belong to and we always off a 10% accommodation to Veterans that identify themselves when making their reservations regardless of the time of year they choose to stay with us.

Thank you for posting the attractive pictures of the Inn. They have special value when they're posted by our guests.

Cheers!

This was the second time we stayed at Captain Jefferds and we had an equally wonderful time. The food, service, location, and amenities (like the heavenly sheets) make it worth staying at the Captain Jefferds.

Room Tip: This weekend the only room available was 'the hideaway'. It was great for my husband and me...

This was my first stay at the Inn and I would return again in a heartbeat. The rooms are gorgeous, the breakfast delicious and the staff is wonderful. The Inn is a short walk to several restaurants and shops. I can't recommend the Captain Jefferds Inn enough!

Andrea V thank you for the kind words and enthusiastic recommendation.

Our proximity to Dock Square and some simply fabulous restaurants and specialty shops makes the stay all that much better.

I hoped you enjoyed that walk and noticed the concentration of Elm trees along the way. We are located in the Historical district of Kennebunkport on a tree lined street in a part of town where you can spot Native American Elms aside historical homes as they once were 100 years ago. It takes very little imagination on a warm sunny day to envision yourself walking the streets in the late 1800's around here.

That walk to Dock Square took you past a number of Elms that are on the towns preservation program, which according to the town Arborist, Robert Palmer (no not the musician) has about 30 Elms that can be thought of as "Mature", one being a short walk away on Ocean Ave.

Come back again soon.

Cheers!

I stay at the Captain Jefferd's Inn several times a year and the hospitality of Eric and Sarah as well as the beauty of the inn itself never cease to amaze me. The rooms are cozy and luxurious and we always look forward to our delicious breakfasts each morning. I am already planning my next stay there!
