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.
My stay at the Brick hotel was very pleasant, I think both the quality of service and cleanliness exceeded my expectations. They were also kind enough to receive a package in my name and deliver it to my room, without charges. The only suggestion I would make is to install a baggage lift to help getting them up the stairs.
Wonderful stay again in a very clean quaint historic hotel. One of the most comfortable hotel beds experienced. Loved the new feather pillows from San Francisco. We'll be looking into getting those for home! Claudia & Carl
I found the staff very helpful and the rooms warm and inviting. The Inn is well located and accessable by public transportation. The old world feel of a private bath outside of the room was an intriguing touch.
I arrived early but room was ready, which after a long journey was great. Jeffrey was really helpful when I realised I had left my cell phone at the Amtrak station, he called them straight away and was very efficient. The room was beautiful, great welcome pack, air conditioned and delightfully decorated and furnished. Breakfast was continental, great selection of bagels, croissants, muffins, cereals etc. excellent value for money, would stay again.
We recently stayed 3 nights at this b&b. The inn was very nice, room was clean, the breakfasts were delicious and the innkeepers were spectacular. Mark and Nancy were hospitable, helpful, and a joy to be around. The inn is within walking distance of downtown Freeport and a short car ride away from many other things to do. We would highly recommend this inn to anyone and would definitely stay there again.
Inn at St. John may be a bit rough around the edges—it's old and could use updating and new decor—but it's got character, it's spotless, and it's pretty well located. For the money, compared to what you could spend in Portland, I think it's a fine choice. This was my second stay, and unless money somehow becomes no object, I'll stay there again.
The staff at Inn at St John was friendly and helpful. The Inn has a welcoming and cozy feel despite being on a busy intersection. I loved my stay. Everything was so clean and a great bed. The Inn at St John is a gem. Great value. The Inn is a good walk to sights of downtown but sooo affordable...worth the walk.
Pros - Wonderful staff, with top-notch housekeeping and front desk workers. - Clean rooms - Great continental breakfast Cons - Bed was far too soft for us, made for some poor sleeping - Shower stall was very small Also, check out what room you are selecting, we unfortunately chose a room right on the street, which was slightly noisy. The Inn itself is a bit outside of Old Port, and walkability to the Old Port is questionable. That being said, it is a slightly quirky Inn that makes for a decent place to stay, with good value when compared to the larger hotels closer to Old Port. We would consider staying there again if we visit Portland in the future.
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.
I was visiting portland with my sister for the very first time and traveling without a car, it was very nice to stay in a comfortable place located near the amtrak/bus station. The inn was away from the old port area but depending on the pace, it can take more or less than 30mins by walking, usually it took us about 20 mins. Loved the spacious room and service but the room we stayed seemed to have a bit of ac/ humidity problem, the room felt stuffy throughout the day and night so instead we turned off the ac and opened the windows, which fixed the problem. Overall it was pleasant stay.
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
Wolf Cove Inn and its' hosts Sue and Roy provided a wonderful weekend getaway for my wife and I. We highly recommend it to anyone seeking a quiet picturesque Maine experience that is just over 2 hours from Boston.
Luxurious high end B&B, rooms very well appointed. Owners and night staff extremely accomodating (examples-lent us beach passes and towels day we checked out, any info about the area requested-they quickly went online and helped us map out itineraries graciously, we saw another the owners find another guest a room [the Inn was full and they needed another night]). Very clean (watched night Desk staff clean lounge toilet and tidy up), lovely teas/coffees/lemonade set out in sitting areas in afternoon and night. Understated elegance. Location excellent with easy parking-walk a few pleasant blocks into heart of the village for shops/restauants. We will be back.
We spent the Labor Day weekend in Kennebunkport, Me. at the Captain Jefferds Inn. The inn is in walking distance to the water and the town of Kennebunkport. Our room was warm, inviting, and comfortable with two chairs to watch TV. The room was clean and the sheets smelled wonderful! We enjoyed the breakfast served daily and the cookies and dip and chips served in the afternoon. I highly recommend this inn and would visit it again.
