Stay in Kennebunkport Maine

Our Story

Twenty-five years prior to buying our Kennebunkport Maine bed and breakfast, Captain Jefferds Inn, Erik and I took our first “innkeepers” course and afterward proceeded to look on and off for the “perfect inn” on the coast of Maine. The moment we stepped through the front door we knew that we had finally found it. We sold our home in Redding Connecticut, purchased this quintessential Kennebunkport lodging and began a wonderful journey in this special place along Maine’s coast.

About our Kennebunkport Inn

Consistently ranked number 1 and 2 on Trip Advisor with a 98% approval rating, The Captain Jefferds Inn has 16 rooms from which to choose. Each individually decorated room has a private bath and many have a gas fireplace or wood-styled stove to add to the romantic ambiance.  We serve a three-course breakfast in the beautiful dining room where you will have the opportunity to meet other guests and exchange your stories and experiences. If you would prefer a more intimate setting we have tables for two or four.
