We spent our 20th anniversary here. Neither of us had ever been to ME before, so we didn't know what to expect. The Inn is beautiful! The people were friendly & welcoming. The service was top-notch & breakfast was delicious! I would stay here again :)

My favorite Inn

My husband and I have been here at least 3 times now, this year I decided to invite my two sisters to join me. We had a wonderful time catching up and they loved Captain Jefferd's. It truly is the best Inn in Kennebunkport! My husband and I have stayed in several throughout town but this is by far our favorite. Staff is wonderful and Sarah and Erik are very pleasant owners !

The BEST B&B I've ever stayed in!

We have stayed in Bed & Breakfasts all over the country, and without question our favorite B&B is The Captain Jefferds Inn!! We've been there multiple times, and we wouldn't even consider staying someplace else!! Everyone on staff, including the Inn Keepers, are terrific... We are so comfortable at Captain Jefferds, it's like staying with family!! The Captain Jefferds is an experience you don't want to miss the next time you travel to or through Kennebunkport, ME!! In two words... Absolutely Awesome!!!

Beautiful Inn

My wife and I stayed at the Captain Jefferds Inn during our 30th Anniversary trip. Our stay was amazing! The Inn was beautiful, comfortable and full of history. Our Inn Keepers and their staff were there to help us with our stay in Kennebunkport, and gave us great advice and information. The inn is very near the harbor and town while in a quiet secluded neighborhood. We totally enjoyed our stay. It was perfect, including the walk among the ocean.

Beautiful old inn.

Very friendly and obliging hosts, fabulous 3 course breakfast, great amenities. My one suggestion would be that the bed could have been a little softer.

Fun in Maine

Wonderful experience at CJI during some unusually warm, September days! Enjoyable breakfasts with company of other guests, friendly innkeeper service from all who work there, lovely ambiance. Needed daily AC window unit to run in room during majority of stay, mattress on bed is ok, with beautiful sheets that smelled heavenly. Lovely wicker porch with plenty of windows and a fan, relaxing, daily refreshments to enjoy. All in all, a beautiful, personable, B&B. Would return to visit again!

Very pleasant stay at this charming place . Breakfast was always delicious from the frittata to blueberry pancakes and so much more ! Afternoon tea snacks of cheeses and bites were to look forward to. The owner was always present at the site and we learned that this was a dog friendly establishment so definitely in our next visit we will bring our dog. They also have bikes available anytime for use good for a family ride around Kennebunkport. The bedsheets are amazingly soft and comfy thank goodness they have some available for purchase I bought them and took them home as a good reminder of our family week vacation at beautiful Captain Jefferds !
