Winter Renovations at Our Kennebunkport Bed & Breakfast 27 Jan 2015, 10:00 pm

The Captain Lord Mansion is similar to a bridge, it is never completely renovated.  Each year we schedule redecorating and maintenance in specific rooms in order to keep each guest room feeling freshly decorated and welcoming.  We have scheduled some winter renovations to include: The Captain’s Suite (Merchant) and the Lincoln rooms in the Mansion to be extensively redecorated as well planning a freshening of the Daniel room in the Captain’s Garden House.  Merchant and Daniel will receive new wall-to wall carpets; additionally, Merchant and Lincoln will be enhanced with new window treatments and beautifully classic wall-papers.  Here are “before” pictures of both Merchant and Lincoln.  We’ll post the new photos upon completion of the redecorating which is scheduled to be completed by the end of March.   Your innkeepers, Bev Davis and Rick Litchfield

Kennebunkport Photographer for Maine Bed & Breakfast 20 Jan 2015, 10:21 pm

Our friend Robert A. Dennis lives in nearby Cape Porpoise and loves photographing the many scenic vistas found abundantly in this beautiful area.  We are the beneficiary of his work because he has taken fantastic pictures of the Captain Lord Mansion in every season and allows us to use them on our website and in our marketing materials.  Above is a photo from last winter when we had so much snow.  We love the perspective of the expanse of the River Green which beautifully frames the inn season after season.  Bob’s website is Port Images and you may peruse the wonderful variety of images available there and also purchase them.  He is our favorite Kennebunkport Photographer!  We hope you enjoy his work as much as we do. Your innkeepers, Bev Davis and Rick Litchfield

Captain Lord Mansion Conducts 6th Annual “Dime for Time” Breast Cancer Fundraiser 10 Dec 2014, 9:04 am

 

Celebrate with us as The Captain Lord Mansion conducts its 6th Annual “Dime for Time” Breast Cancer Fundraiser in 2015!

Owners of this romantic Kennebunkport inn, Bev Davis and Rick Litchfield invite you to participate in their Lois Ann Fincher Memorial  “Dime for Time” Fundraising Campaign.  This original campaign was begun in 2010 to honor Bev’s sister, Lois Ann Fincher who passed away in 2003 after a long and heroic battle with breast cancer. This is the “Signature Charity” for our Maine Coast bed & breakfast inn.

For each guest stay at our Kennebunkport Bed & Breakfast throughout the year, we pledge a donation to this fund. Donations are calculated as a multiple of dimes based on frequency of guest visits.  In October of 2014 one couple made their 100th visit to the inn!  Thus, with such a large number of  frequent visitors, we have donated over $20,000 to the American Cancer Society from the past five year’s fundraising efforts.

In 2015 we are choosing to make our donation to “My Breast Cancer Support”, an organization located in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. This 501C-3 Charitable organization provides household assistance, family support, living expenses, travel scholarships and complimentary wellness programs to deserving women from Portsmouth, NH to Sanford, Maine.  We decided to support this organization because it directly and positively impacts lives of women from the local seacoast area.

The Captain Lord Mansion “Dime for Time” Breast Cancer Fundraiser culminates each year on the last Sunday and Monday of November when selected New England area breast cancer survivors receive a complimentary two-night stay at the Inn and a short reception is held when a check for money raised is presented to the receiving organization. 

If you desire to nominate someone for this complimentary stay at the inn, please send Bev and Rick an email at innkeeper@captainlord.com.  Due to winter travel considerations, we usually accept nominations only for women from the six New England states.  The email nomination should be about 250 words in length and should give us an idea of why that person should be chosen, as well as giving us the contact information (phone number, mailing address and email address) for the nominee.

Your innkeepers, Bev Davis and Rick Litchfield

Why Does The Captain Lord Mansion Serve S&D Coffee? 19 Nov 2014, 9:37 am

Have you ever wondered what coffee the Captain Lord Mansion and the Captain’s Garden House serve for breakfast and why?  For many years we served Victor Coffee which was acquired by S&D Coffee in May of 2000. So, for over 14 years S&D has been our principal supplier of coffee products.  We receive many compliments on the quality of our coffee; so, that is why we continue to serve S&D products.

However, upon researching information about S&D Coffee to write this blog, I was pleased to learn that they have a corporate culture focused on sustainability and good business practices.  Here is a quote from the S&D website: “Now, as we start the next phase of our journey, S&D has joined the ranks of industry leaders who are committing themselves to a new goal: delivering great-tasting products in the most responsible way possible. That means offering sustainably-sourced beverages, reducing our carbon footprint, scaling back our overall energy use, expanding our employee health and wellness programs, and rededicating ourselves to serving our community“.

Last year we consumed over 500 pounds of coffee at the Captain Lord Mansion.  That does not include the individual pods we have available at the Captain’s Garden House or special pods used with the N’espresso coffee/cappuccino machine at the Mansion.

We appreciate our guest feedback and will continue to serve the best breakfast products we can find.

Your innkeepers, Bev Davis and Rick Litchfield
