    Breakfast

    Come celebrate breakfast at our Kennebunkport inn by indulging in a creative, gourmet, cooked-to-order breakfast, served in our dining room between 8:30 and 9:30am. Unlike many other b&b’s, we offer individual tables for two as well as a gathering table that seats six.

    The breakfast experience begins with our special blend of fair-trade "Coffee by Design," Mighty Leaf organic teas, and our signature fresh orange juice blend. This will soon be followed by a seasonal fruit course and pastries fresh from the oven. Finally you will be offered a choice of two prepared to order entrées.When creating menus, we endeavor to use the freshest seasonal and local Maine and New England ingredients.

    If you think the temptation to sleep in will be just too great, choose our "breakfast basket" option! Just let us know the night before, and your basket will be left outside your door just before 8:30am. You can enjoy hot coffee, fresh juice, delicious pastries with artisan jam, and fresh fruit in the privacy of your own room.  We’re also happy to pack up the breakfast basket in a to-go bag, for those catching an early whale watch or needing an early check out.

    Wine List and Small Plates

    Thoughtfully chosen and affordable, our seasonal wine list offers you a range of vino options to enjoy in our front parlor or in the privacy of your guestoom.

    Need an afternoon nibble or evening snack awaiting your arrival? Our small plates fit the bill. Visit our website to review the current Captain Fairfield Inn small plate offerings.

    Captain Fairfield Inn beachKennebunkport - Your Gateway to Southern Maine

    Our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast can serve as your home base as you explore the southern half of Maine. There are so many wonderful places to discover – whether on a quick 20-minute drive, or a two-hour day trip. From the hip restaurants in Portland, to the beauty of the mid-coast, to the “dangerous” outlet shopping deals in Kittery (to the South) and Freeport (to the North), there is no reason not to stay a week and see it all!

    The harbor town of Kennebunkport offers endless possibilities — five-star dining for even the most discerning palate, casual clam shacks for an afternoon indulgence, boutiques, galleries, whale watches, endless beaches, and much, much more. There’s a reason Kennebunkport has become an international destination. We hope you’ll allow us to share our piece of the Maine Coast with you.

    Be sure to ask about our favorite things to do. We can guide you to secluded beaches, send you on a scenic lighthouse or foliage driving tour, recommend the place to get a lobster right off the boat, and if you’re lucky, we’ll tell you about our favorite spot to watch the sun set!

  • Insider's Info

    Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences. Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers. Many thanks to Jed Thomas & Alana Buie for sharing their own secrets with BBOnline.com!
    Why do most travelers stay at your inn?

    Captain Fairfield Inn offers bold modern style in a traditional Captain house in the heart of Kennebunkport - all a short stroll from Dock Square.

    What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?

    Our chic, modern decor, our outdoor lounge with fire pits and our morning cocktails (and wine list)!

    If someone has never been to your city, what is the #1 reason to come visit?

    Kennebunkport is quintessential Maine. A mix of rustic marinas with lobster boats and 5-star restaurants. It's an easy drive from Boston and most East Coast locations.

    What’s the best compliment you have ever received about the inn?

    From a recent Trip Advisor review: "I promised myself I would never stay in a B&B. That changed this past week when my husband and I stayed at Captain Fairfield. I loved it."

    What’s the best kept secret about the area?

    Winter can be the most magical season to visit Kennebunkport. Stroll among snow covered trees and historic homes, come back to a roaring fireplace, a novel and a glass of wine, and later on, dinner at a cozy tavern. 

    If a traveler is staying at your inn for 4 nights, what should he/she do in the area?

    There are endless possibilities. This section on our website covers it all:  http://www.captainfairfield.com/the-area/ 

    Is there anything within walking distance of your inn?

    Tons! The inn is located a few blocks from Dock Square -- the hub of boutiques and restaurants.

    What is your favorite restaurant/food in the area?

    There are lots of great restaurants, including the acclaimed, five-star White Barn Inn and the casually fantastic, The Ramp. However, Bandaloop holds a special place in our hearts.

    Any good area guides/websites that travelers could reference?

    See #6 above.  http://www.captainfairfield.com/the-area/

    Nine.

    Do you accept pets?
