    Why do most travelers stay at your inn?

    Captain Fairfield Inn offers bold modern style in a traditional Captain's house in the heart of Kennebunkport - all just 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 quintessentially Maine. It has 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: 

    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 in Kennebunkport.

    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 Bar & Grill (located inside Pier 77 restaurant). Bandaloop also holds a special place in our hearts.

    Any good area guides/websites that travelers could reference?

  • Kennebunkport: Your Gateway to Southern Maine

    Captain Fairfield Inn beach

    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!
