A year ago, Rick Litchfield and Bev Davis, innkeepers of the Captain Lord Mansion (CLM), generously donated an overnight of lodging to the Sanford-Springvale Rotary Club's TASTES OF THE SEASON - wine tasting and charity auction. My wife and I were pleased to purchase the gift certificate and last evening, we had the pleasure of staying at CLM. When experiencing CLM, one will realize that NOTHING IS LACKING!!!
From the parking lot, walking up the path through beautiful flower gardens, into the foyer and then up our room - The Ship Ophelia, the surroundings and the appointments were all first class.
This morning, we were treated to a wonderful breakfast and were able to chat with people "from away" and learned that many were long-time visitors to CLM, and thrilled to be back there again. There is no adequate way to express my gratitude to the innkeepers and my admiration for what they have accomplished at CLM.

Dear Shapleigh, Thank you for your nice review. We are pleased that you were able to experience our inn through the Charity Auction donation. We are quite selective in which charities we support and being a former Rotarian myself, I always do support the Sanford-Springvale one. We hope that potential guests who read your review will note the many touches which made such a memorable visit for you. Rick Litchfield, your innkeeper

When we need a quick escape to Maine our thoughts turn to the Captain Lord Mansion It will just take one visit and you will be hooked. Nothing sterile or modern here. Each room is tastefully decorated in antiques and updated baths (nothing dated) in keeping with the architecture of the home and New England. Heated bathroom floors, gas fireplaces and TV's are in every room. And the chocolate chip cookies that greet you on arrival are yummy. Take a look around and you will always see the innkeepers , Bev and Rick, at work updating their Mansion. This is truly a sign that they really care about the comfort of your stay ( 36 years and going strong).
You will be greeted by Sue in the kitchen who will remember all your like and dislikes and help you with any local shopping and restaurants. Truly a help to all.
We have been here 26 times and cannot wait to return.

Room Tip: The Garden House has been our favorite

Dear Jack and Leona, Thank you for this superlative review and mentioning the continuing upgrades we make to the inn each year. Each December, Bev and I go through each guestroom and all the public areas to determine what needs to be attended to. Over the past few years we have tried to simplify decorative touches to allow for more space for guest's personal items. Also, we have changed out upholstered pieces and carpets which were worn. Additionally, Bev and our maintenance person have been doing much of the restorative painting. We look forward to your next visit. Rick Litchfield, your innkeeper

Visited again this past March for our 29th visit and experienced the same high standards of hospitality and attention to detail that keeps us coming back for the past 25 years. We were there with three other couples this time so we stayed in the Garden House which is perfect for 4 couples because with that many people even talking in normal voices I feel can disturb other guests so it works out well for a larger crowd traveling together. The rooms are beautifully appointed and breakfast was delicious as usual. This is our favorite place to come when we want to unwind and just relax and have some peace and quiet. We have stayed in all the rooms at the main inn and the Garden House (Phoebe's House) with the exception of 4 and all are beautiful although Champion is our favorite. We always come off season, usually winter and fall because we love the atmosphere and coziness of the inn. We sent our son and his wife last year as a gift for their first wedding anniversary during Christmas Prelude and they are now hooked as well. We are planning to return in November to stay in the main inn to celebrate my husband's birthday which we have done for most years. I cannot end this without mentioning the exceptional staff, always professional but friendly and helpful without being intrusive. We love the breakfast cook, Sue, she is a gem. She is so welcoming that we almost feel like we are coming home when we see her, not to mention her scrumptious breakfasts. Even if we are not staying in the main house we never miss an opportunity to walk over in the morning to say hello to Sue. See you in November!

Room Tip: Champion is our favorite but you will be happy with any.

We just stayed at the Captain Lord Mansion with Rick and Bev. The gift shop is wonderful. We had the best time sipping chocolate wine with other guests, chatting by the fire. Our bed was a high princess bed with steps up to it. I was wondering if I might stumble out of it in the night but no, I did fine and it made me laugh to hop off the big bed like a child. The Innkeepers and staff were warm and adorable. We felt so welcome. Can't wait to return.

Dear Bethlehem, NH, Thank you for your positive review. Yes, guests love our complimentary chocolate dessert wine which we serve every evening. Bev doesn't like chocolate and questioned whether it would be well accepted by guests! Well, it has been a winner! The high beds all have step stools to make it easy getting in and out and safer too. We look forward to your return. Rick Litchfield,your innkeeper

We spent a week at the Captain Lord Mansion for our honeymoon in February. This is a huge inn, but feels like a quaint little place that you share with just a few other people. We stayed in the Hesper room which is the feature photo on tripadvisor. The room had a gas fireplace, toilet in a separate room from the shower and bathtub (both of which had heated floors), a large closet, a dresser, a small sofa at the end of the bed, a small tv, and a small refrigerator. The Captain Lord Mansion is the place you want to go if you are looking to get away from the hectic pace of everyday life. The inn is so comfortable, that after breakfast we took up one of the couhches next to the fireplace in the parlor while our room was cleaned. Once it was cleaned we moved back up stairs and continued reading for most of the day in our room. You remember how nice it is just to relax with a book, cuddle in front of the tv, or enjoy some wine while watching the fire.
The breakfasts are absolutely delicious, if you go away hungry it is your own fault! I highly recommend having at least one muffin every morning, they are amazing! There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance of the mansion, and within a 10 minute walk of most of the shops in Kennebunkport.
The staff members are very accomodating, and are more than willing to help you with directions, sightseeing recommendations, or restaurant suggestions. Get to know Sue, the cook in the main house... she is a wonderful lady that will make you feel very welcome.
This was our second time to Kennebunkport, and the first time staying at this B&B. We are already looking forward to our next visit to Kennebunkport and will for sure be staying at the Captain Lord Mansion on our many return trips.

Room Tip: We heard the Champion room was the best... but I didn't hear a single bad thing about any of the...
