For my first stop on my first trip to Maine, I chose the Captain Jefferds Inn and boy did I pick the perfect spot! The Innkeepers (and Rachel) are just so sweet and helpful!!! The room (The Arundel Room) was huge, gorgeous, well decorated, with an oversized jacuzzi tub, fireplace and lots of room. King size bed and mini fridge added to the luxury. The bed was so comfortable, the room was so quiet, and the view of the neighborhood was quaint. The location is perfect..... just one block from the port (and restaurants), and 3 blocks to town.

If you want a pet friendly place, this is your spot, as they have rooms designated for pets in the Carriage House. If you are not a fan of pets, not to worry.... they are not allowed in the main house. (I didn't hear a peep out of the dogs staying there ). The Inn is immaculate! The 3 course breakfast was gourmet and delicious! .... simply perfect!! I will go back, for sure!!!! No place else to stay in this town!

Room Tip: I Loved the Arundel Room... the largest in the house, with the tub and fridge.

We are honored to have been your first stop in the state of Maine. The Arundel room sounds like it was the perfect fit for you; that is a very welcoming room with a fabulous view. We are also glad to hear you enjoyed your breakfast here at CJI. We sure enjoy making the fruit dishes, muffins, casseroles, pancakes, omelets..and lots of other treats!
All the best to you,
Erik and Sarah

Fantastic inn. Immaculate. Walking distance to the center of town. So beautifully maintained! The bed we slept on was so comfortable I am going to buy the mattress. One of the most beautiful inn/ hotels we have ever stayed in.

Room Tip: There is no bad room.

We spent two nights at Captain Jefferds, and it was a wonderful experience. The Inn is impeccably maintained with attention to the smallest details. To call the stafff perfectionists would not be an overstatement. The Inn is colonial style, but light and airy. There is glass porch perfect for the mornings and a patio for the evenings. The living room was beautiful and the fire in the fireplace on a call Maine evening in early June was a special and unexpected treat. We were in the room called Katadhin and it was small and on the third floor. Other rooms were larger and more accessible, but Katahdin was impeccably maintained as were all the rooms. Breakfast was a delight with great food and new friendships with other guests. The Innkeepers and staff were delightful and enteraining. What a great beginning to a trip up the coast of Maine

Thank you for your kind review of our B&B. I have passed your comments on to the staff and have to say that it is through their efforts that the inn is kept as well as it is. We're fortunate to have their dedication and commitment.
By now your trip up the coast is a fond memory. We wish you many more wonderful journeys and hope that if you happen to be in this area you will stay with us again.
Enjoy the rest of your summer!

We spent 2 nights here at the start of our first visit to New England...and what a start. Great room, wonderful hospitality and an excellent location, being close to the centre of the town, all contributed to a stay that will live long in our memories. CJI, its gardens and surrounding neighbourhood exceeded our expectations. Our hosts and staff saw to all our needs and we particularly appreciated the restaurant suggestions and reservations made on our behalf at short notice.
We thoroughly recommend this wonderful inn.

We spent 5 days at Captain Jefferds and we did walk away with the feeling that we were leaving a friend's home. We made our reservation after reading the reviews on several websites and am happy to say that our hosts Sarah and Erik along with their cheerful staff Steve and the rest of their very pleasant staff exceeded our expectations. The outstanding service and suggestions they thoughtfully provided made our trip truly memorable.
Our dogs were greeted with large personalized cookies (wolfed down in a few seconds) in serving plates, bowls were placed on a little mat and ample towels and sheets were provided to cover furniture and dry the dogs when we returned from our walk to the beach. We stayed in the Baxter room which has a cottage feel to it. It is spacious and has its own screened porch through which the dogs could look out on the village green. The gardens are beautifully maintained and there are two water features including a soothing waterfall that we could hear from our room.
Breakfast was definitely very delicious (they are not kidding when they say "gourmet" and three course) and warmly served every morning by a very conscientious staff! They never repeated a single course during our five days, which was a rare treat in itself.
We give Captain Jefferds Inn our highest recommendation!

Room Tip: Discuss what type of room and amenities you would like when making your reservation and they will guide you to book the room that is suitable for you.

Thank you for your review. We're glad that you and your 4-legged companions enjoyed your stay in the Baxter Room. We hoped you would like the "Maine Camp" feeling. The bed was purchased from a local gentleman man who cut, dried and planed the wood then made it into a bed! We bought it sight unseen and love that it's one of a kind! The mural was done by an artist friend of ours from CT. All in all it's a comfortable room and is pet friendly, how great is that?
We are pleased that you felt as though you left as friends, because that's exactly how we want you to feel. You come to the inn as guests and leave as friends - it doesn't get better than that!!
Our very best to the 4 of you,
Sarah and Erik
