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! Boy what a difference 2 weeks makes, yes it was cold at the end of April but now, as I write this note we are finishing off a classic Maine spring weekend where the days are warm and the evenings cool enough to walk the Port in a light jacket, but still sleep comfortably with the windows open....

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. Adjacent to the small shopping district is a lovely residential neighborhood, where inn after quaint inn is located. And it's there where Captain Jefferds stands out, possibly...
