very well located. close to Perkins Cove, walking distance to Marginal Way and good restaurants. Inn Keepers were very pleasant, helpful and sympathetic. site is away from the hustle and bustle yet close to a tourist's needs. would certainly consider returning on our next visit.
Don't waste you time looking for a better place to stay. Capt. Jefferds is the best. The house, the guest rooms, the staff and the food is an amazing experience. We were celebrating a once in a lifetime 50th anniversary, and Capt. Jefferds exceeded our expectations in every way. The photos on there web site cannot capture the experience of being there. Loved it.
Our stay at the Hartwell House Inn in picturesque Ogunquit could not have been better! A beautifully decorated,spotlessly clean room, accompanied by deliciously prepared breakfasts all within walking distance of the Marginal Way, fine restaurants and the Ogunquit Beach made for a wonderful three night visit. Innkeepers Charlene and Eric were exceptional hosts! We have already made reservations for our next visit
We have stayed at several Bed & Breakfast Inns for our anniversaries from the Cape to Maine. The Hartwell House Inn exceeded our expectations and rates #1 on our B&B stays. From the location at Perkins Cove to the lavish room accommodations topped off with gracious hospitality and extraordinary breakfast makes this our next B&B visit over and over again. Thank you to Charlene and Eric and their staff for making this a memorable occasion. Heartfelt thanks, Paul and Andrea
We spent the last night of our vacation at the Black Boar Inn and it was perfect. The location was right on Main Street so easy to find and very close to shops and the beach. John and Dwain were the perfect hosts and were full of information about where to eat; the Inn; and their own adventures. Our room was on the second floor and faced the street but the street noise didn't bother us at all. The room was very clean and had everything we needed AND a salt scrum for my hands which I loved! They gave us a choice of what to have for breakfast and it was delicious. We loved the Blueberry Jam and even bought some to bring home as it was the best we had tasted. All in all, we would stay here again as we felt warmly welcomed and love the location. Also, it was fun to stay in such a well maintained, very old historic home. A great ending to our lovely vacation.
We stayed at the Hartwell Inn for one night on our 10 day Maine vacation. It was the last night of our trip, within easy driving distance of Logan Airport. The Room, Service, State of the Inn were all top notch. However, after staying at Inns and B&B's the previous nine days, there was nothing to wow you. Part of my problem is that the whole Ogunquit area, was, in comparison with the rest of our experience in Bar Harbor, Castine, and Pemaquid, over priced, touristy, and just plain blah. So, for $200 a night it served its purpose, there was no better value near-by, etc. They served a good breakfast, high quality ingredients, etc. just nothing special.
We just got back from a romantic little stay at the Nellie and it coudnt have been better. It was quick - just one night - so we tried to fit in all that we could. We loved the location being in the heart of everything. The night we were there it poured rain, but we had so many options still, for dinner, as we could walk to many great places. We got a massage in the afternoon, but before it, we went in the hot tub. Keep in mind our stay was in mid Sept and the air was a bit chilly, but the hot tub was incredible. And just what made a relaxing massage even better. The room was great, clean and perfect sized. We even had a balcony, which we sat out on in the morning sunshine. When we went downstairs to breakfast, we were pleasantly surprised at how big the buffet was. So many delicious choices. Blueberry juice was a huge hit and the raspberry scone with white chocolate, hasn't left my mind yet. And Tricia the Inn Keeper was extremely accommodating and helpful with out being overly eager. She really was great. We loved it here and will most certainly return for another visit!
We had a lovely stay, the inkeepers were delightful and attentive, and we felt like personal guests. Breakfast was amazing, and we very much enjoyed the afternoon tea and complimentary blueberry brandy. Would definitely return!
My husband and I got engaged in Ogunquit 18 years ago in September and have been coming to Ogunquit the same time every year since to celebrate our engagement. Of those 18 years, we have stayed at The Trellis House for 14 and for the past 4 years we have had our friends join us for this annual trip. They love this B&B as much as we do. We love Jerry's wonderful sense of humor and Pat's delicious breakfasts and can't imagine staying anywhere else. The location is perfect walking distance to the Marginal Way, Perkin's Cove and downtown Ogunquit without ever having to get into your car. You will not be disappointed staying here.
We had a great time at the Hartwell House. The room we had was spacious, clean and comfortable. It was my boyfriend's birthday and they had a cake in the room (that I had ordered) when we opened the door. It was really relaxing. Also, it isn't right in the center of the town....just a few minutes to walk there, which we preferred and it wasn't as crowded.
Judi, Walter and their exemplary staff make your stay at this beautiful Inn like staying with family. The Inn and our room was beautiful and so comfortable. I did get a peek at cottage #6...gorgeous, we will probably pick a cottage next time because of the nature of our buying trips. This is a first class establishment...elegant but not pretentious. We had such a wonderful time and a perfect place for a honeymoon, anniversary or a romantic trip. We will definitely be staying here again. It is in walking distance to restaurants and shops...my favorite thing to do:) Thanks Judi for all your help. Paul and Linda...McKinney, Texas
We have traveled extensively throughout New England, but no B & B can compare with Dockside Guest Quarters. Not only are the rooms and dining experience great,but also the views of the inner harbor and Atlantic Ocean are superb.
Such a great place to stay from the location to the attention to detail that the Littlefield house as to offer. We stayed there five years ago and again this summer, over the years there were some improvements made that make this Inn one of the best places in Maine.
Staying at Capt Jefferds is the place to stay in Kennebunkport. Just a short walk to the main street for dining and shopping. The hosts were wonderful and very accommodating. We brought our 10 month old with us and we were provided with a garden room with a portable crib, baby blanket and rubber ducky. The garden room was very private with our own separate entrance so we didn't feel like we were bothering all the adult couples who wanted a restful stay. It also meant no lugging baby stuff up the stairs! The breakfasts were delicious - of course blueberry pancakes were my favorite. Would love to return another time.
We stayed two nights at The Elmere House in Wells. What good fortune! The Elmere House is clean, homey, and beautifully decorated. Best of all, our host, Son Mi is delightful – as is Abby, Son Mi’s little Yorkie. We heartily recommend the Elmere House. Rachael & Paul, East Montpelier, VT
A first visit to Maine. We chose this inn through the web by looking at the location and the style. If we ever go back to that part of New England, this is definitely a place we'll stay at. The innkeepers were also very helpful in providing us with all sorts of information about the area.
You know that an Inn is the perfect place when you have been out for the day and you comment how nice it is to be home. Captain Jefferds Inn is just such a place. Innkeepers Sarah and Erik always make you feel like you are part of the family coming home for a visit. The staff are so gracious and accommodating. Christina and her girls make morning breakfast a treat and Steve keeps the lights burning at night to guide you back to the Inn. If you are ever thinking about taking a trip to Kennebunkport Maine put this Inn on your list as a place to stay. You will find yourself returning again and again. I am already planning next years stay. Susan M. from RI
Far and away the standard bearer for all others to try to duplicate. Scott and Peter have thought of EVERYTHING!!!!. Upon entering to a warm reception and noting the "enter as strangers leave as friends" motto we were supremely impressed with the planning, layout and ambiance of the Gazebo Inn. Since this location was recommended by dear friends we were receptive to an exceptional expectation and it was met at every turn. From the complimentary water to the complimentary outdoor area including a fabulous hot tub that could accommodate 12 + but we had it all to ourselves. We looked for something to comment on and were flabbergasted with the service and need by the staff to satisfy our every request with a flamboyance that cannot be expressed in words. A truly fantastic experience. Wished we could have stayed for a month. Breakfast was homemade from the wonderful scones to the cream filled French toast to the fresh coffee.....EXCELLENT. Having stayed at B&B's worldwide and traveling to Ogunquit for the first time we were totally impressed with all aspects of this location and plan on regular visits to share with present and new friends for a long time. Scott and Peter, you guys are GREAT.... Bill & Eileen
Hartwell House Inn was the perfect quick getaway we needed. We relaxed, enjoyed the views and the food aplenty. Charlene is the most gracious host. Loved her tea time treats and breakfast. A must repeat next time we're in Ogunquit.
