Perfect Place

5 on August 02, 2016

The captain Jeffreds inn is over the top GREAT. Our fifth stay over many years. We always return to the generosity warmth and hospitality of Eric and Sarah. We wouldn't think if staying anywhere else. Location is perfect. Warm and inviting. Breakfast over the top. Amenities perfect. Can't say enough great things. And many many new friends all due to the welcoming atmosphere


Puppy's Paradise

5 on July 13, 2016

We enjoyed a lovely and relaxing July getaway in the wonderfully pup-friendly New Hampshire room. Our curious and discriminating shepherd loved the enclosed porch, private entrance, personalized dog treat and convenient skid-proof bowls. Space was ample but our quarters felt cozy and both bedrooms and the bathroom were immaculate. The main house was also meticulously tended, with a beautiful sitting room and a breakfast table fit for Norman Rockwell. Staff and owners were warm, competent and attentive. Our every need was anticipated with aplomb. If only we could have stayed longer!

Wonderful Small Inn

4.8 on April 03, 2016

This is the second time I've stayed at the Captain Jefferds Inn. The owners/innkeepers are warm and helpful but not intrusive. The breakfasts are excellent and beautifully served and the management graciously accommodated a guest who had specific dietary requirements. Rooms are clean and well-appointed, some having gas fireplaces which work well. I recommend this inn most highly.


Third visit!

My husband and I visited Sarah and Erik at Captain Jefferds for the 3rd time this past weekend. As always, the Inn is beautiful and the hosts wonderful. A fabulous breakfast awaits each morning. We'll be back again!


Home from home

Thinking back about our recent stay at the Captain Jefferds Inn, it was perfect! Felt like we were visiting family. The staff and owners catered to our every need. A home from home experience with added luxuries...including the softest towels ever and a cozy log fire in the sitting room, the perfect place to share a bottle of wine. We stayed in the Arundel room which was spacious, elegantly comfortable, immaculate with gas fireplace and jacuzzi bath tub...who could ask for more. Thanks for a wonderful stay!


Wonderful stay

My husband and I stayed here on Veterns Day. Erik and Sarah open their home free of charge to Verterns on Veterns Day. We were so grateful to have the opportunity to stay here this Veterns Day. Our room was beautiful, cozy and so peaceful. The wine and cheese reception was a very nice touch to a special stay. Breakfast was delicious. We thank you for all you do for Veterns and we appreciated our stay. I highly recommend staying here. Sincerely Karrie and Tony O'Regan


Don't buy the sheets

4.4 on December 07, 2015

The Captain Jefferds is a wonderful inn that is in a great location. The bed was so comfortable that we decided to purchase the sheets. These were pricey sheets and I thoroughly enjoyed them, until 17 months later the fitted sheet disintegrated. I called the inn and they said there was a one year warranty on the sheets and there was nothing they could do. She said they have this problem from time to time. Of course I could purchase another fitted sheet for $75.00 + shipping...why would I do that when the product is obviously inferior. Why are they still selling these to customers? Shame.


First time trip to Maine!
