For our first visit to Maine, we decided to stay at a B&B and thankfully chose this one. It was beautiful, clean, friendly, great location (walking distance to town) and the food was wonderful. There is not one negative thing to say. And the Habitat for Hospitality was a great special. If you are not sure which B&B to stay...

We are so glad that you enjoyed your anniversary and first visit to Maine at our B&B! Thank you for participating in the Maine Innkeepers "Hospitality for Habitat" program. The Captain Jefferds Inn raised just shy of $2,000 thanks to your participation. Perhaps we'll see you at the same time next year! Enjoy your summer, and your future anniversary trips!

We visited Kennebunkport for a quick mid-week getaway. Prior to booking our stay, we checked TripAdvisor for accommodations in Kennebunkport and the neighboring towns. One of our concerns was cancellation policy, because we are currently dealing with elder-care, and we were unsure if we would be called away. Before booking our stay, I talked to one of the innkeepers on...

It has been 6 months since our last visit, and quite frankly we couldn't wait to return. Though the weather was less than hospitable, the accommodations and the Inn itself were just as inviting and comfortable as we remembered it. We didn't stay in the main house's elegant Arundel room this time. Instead, we chose the more rustic (and very...

Thanks to Sarah and Erik for a beautiful stay in historic Kennebunkport! Accommodations were spotless and warm, with a legendary breakfast service. Despite the cold weather, everything in town was walkable from the Inn. Would highly recommend for couples for any occasion.

MABurns hi!

The Southern Maine Coast has plenty of charming destinations, and Kennebunkport is at the top, in my opinion. High-end without being stuffy, appealing to the tourist without being tacky, it's a beautiful place.
