Absolutely perfect

5 on September 30, 2011

My daughter got married in Kennebunkport this summer and we actually rented all of the rooms in the Inn for a long weekend, making the Captain Fairfield our headquarters for the weekend. Nate and Hillary had no idea what to expect but greeted all with warmth and smiles. Anything requested, they were there for us - tee times, breakfast to go for golfers, magnificent breakfasts and cookies every day. The rehearsal dinner and brunch on Sunday were in the back yard under a great Sperry tent - the ambiance was spectacular. The rooms were perfect, the linens remarkable, the mattresses made for restful sleep (actually one couple requested the mattress type and ordered for their home!). This truly was a perfect home away from home for a magical wedding weekend. Will certainly be back for another stay to recount great memories in a funky, lovely Inn.

My husband and I stayed at Captain Fairfield this past July for our wedding weekend. We stayed in the Library and it was amazing! The bed was so comfortable and the linens were soft. The private porch was a wonderful way for us to escape by ourselves. Hillary and Nate were so acommodating and friendly. The breakfast was delicious and a great way to start the day. I would highly recommend this inn for anyone looking to get away. The proximity to town makes it easy to walk everywhere which was wonderful. All in all a weekend we will always remember!

One night stay off season.

The staff is very attentive and anxious to please. Couldn't do enough for us. The breakfast was delicious! The room was nice, rug could have been newer. Bed comfy. Bath clean. We asked for a nice restaurant and after describing what we like in the way of food the innkeeper made reservations right on the money.

Innkeeper Response
We're so glad that this guest enjoyed our creative gourmet breakfast and found that our staff was both anxious to please and knowledgeable about the area's dining options. While we don't now which room they stayed in we'd just like to point out that we conducted a major renovation recently which included all pubic spaces and many of the guest rooms. We hope that readers and future guests will contact us with any questions about the rooms or other parts of the inn with questions. All the best, Rob and Leigh, Owners

Fabulous B&B in heart of Kennebunkport

4.6 on September 07, 2010

This charming bed and breakfast is located on a quiet street with peaceful surroundings and yet in walking distance of downtown Kennebunkport. The service is friendly, knowledgeable and very willing and ready to please. The house and grounds are comfortable and relaxing. The breakfast was possibly the best breakfast I ever ate. The room was large and clean. The bathroom was modern and had all amenities. The only downside was two items in the room: small television and the air conditioner was not great. If you are interested in staying in Kennebunkport, then I highly recommend this B&B.

Innkeeper Response
Just a quick update: it's been some time since this review was posted. Since then we have upgraded all of the TVS. Our guest rooms now feature either 32" LCD TV/DVD or 37" LED tvs. Additionally all of the air conditioners are going to be replaced during the winter of 2011 and 2012.

When we arrived we were welcomed in a very warm way by Finn. He showed us to our very niceroom and told us all about the Inn. He was more than willing to help us find a restaurant for dining. The breakfast was very well prepared. A nice treat were the afternoon cookies, also homemade. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this excellent place to evryone. Well done Finn!!
