Exceptional in All Respects

5 on July 28, 2014

We travel for long periods of time (3-4 months) every year and feel like we know exceptional accommodations when we find them. This Inn is exceptional. The rooms are lovely and the grounds are beautifully maintained. It is within easy walking distance of Kennebunkport and, an important feature for us, it is very dog friendly. The breakfast is delicious and full of homemade items and bakery goods and cheese and crackers are available for snacking all day. Please book in advance because it seems to always be full.


Beautiful Inn

4.6 on July 28, 2014

We were gifted with a night's stay at the Jefferds for our honeymoon. Once we made it back, we were given a detailed tour and shown to our room. We stayed in the Vermont room. It has a screened in room shared with New Hapshire room, where our mini fridge was located, a front room with a single day bed, a claw foot tub and small shower in the bathroom and a queen size bed in the bedroom. I don't know if this was from the Inn, but there was a 1/2 size bottle of Prosecco waiting on ice for us. Once we unpacked the car (they have a parking lot) we made our way down to the sun room. The lemonade lived up to its allure, the cookies were addictive, and there was also a cheese plate with 2 varieties. The bed in our room was a delight. It was extra high. The sheets were amazing; my husband is now requesting that we get the same ones for home. I took advantage of the tub. It was a very nice size, but only ideal for 1 person if you want to be comfy. There was a rubber duck, and a tray that spread across the tub. They supplied 2 bottles of bubble bath, which really made it a pleasure. The shower has a very nice shower head. It was a stand up shower, and larger than the ones I've been in before, but still not too spacious. 2 people fit, but it is crowded. When we checked in we were given the option of breakfast at 8:15 or 9:30. Since we had a late checkout (1 pm), we chose 9:30. Breakfast consisted of peaches and cream, a mini muffin and a southwest style frittata. The peaches and cream were exquisite, but the rest of the meal was mediocre. The muffins may have been homemade, but were on par with store bought ones. The egg dish was a sizable portion with salsa and sour cream, but nothing special. Check out was swift and painless. We grabbed a few more cookies from the cookie jar and we were on our way. This was the best stay away from home we have ever experienced and will definitely be back again.

Wonderful staff; lovely inn. Upper floor room had sloping ceiling - watch your head. Good location for both town and waterfront. Good breakfast. Beach gear provided. I'd stay there again.

Great B& B !

Fabulous B&B

5 on June 24, 2014

We stayed in the Wyeth Room at the Captain Jefferds Inn in June, 2014, and it was fabulous. The grounds were immaculate, and the common areas inside the Inn, as well as our room, were decorated beautifully. Our room was very comfortable and quiet. We really enjoyed the breakfasts - they were just delicious and very fresh tasting. The Inn is on a beautiful, quiet street that is a few short blocks to the center of town. We can't say enough about our stay and will certainly be back to visit Sarah, Eric and the wonderful staff at the Captain Jefferds Inn.


A Salute to Captain Jefferds

5 on June 20, 2014

I recently accompanied a friend on a road trip to New England, and of the 6 inns we stayed in, CJI was my favourite. The accommodations combined gracious décor historically appropriate to an old house with all modern conveniences (best sheets on the planet!). The grounds/gardens were lovely, the location was close to everything yet quiet and serene and the afternoon tea and snack selection was phenomenal. Best of all, the hosts were totally on top of their game after 20+ years at the helm, and the staff showed courteous but unobtrusive attention to every need. I look forward to returning with my husband for a romantic getaway as soon as possible! And if we need to bring our dog for any reason, they accommodate pets- how great is that?


Great visit
