Built on Maine’s southern coast in the historic hamlet of Kennebunkport, the Captain Fairfield Inn has a storied past of romance. A wedding present to the inn’s namesake and his bride over 200 years ago, the property is now home to a Federal-style mansion touted as one of the most romantic New England inns by Frommer’s.

The property stays true to its New England heritage with nautical-themed rooms decorated in navy and white stripes, with cozy fireplaces and private patios overlooking the river and quiet town. Balancing the intimacy of a bed-and-breakfast with the amenities of a boutique hotel, all nine guest rooms are equipped with modern luxuries including an iPad 2, Apple TV and Wi-Fi.

All stays include a gourmet small plates breakfast buffet featuring locally sourced, organic ingredients every morning and homemade cookies in the afternoons. The on-site tasting room is open exclusively to guests and pours regional craft beers and wines paired with local cheese, meat and fresh produce.

Once one of the wealthiest town in New England, Kennebunkport features stunning examples of Colonial architecture just steps from the inn’s front door and numerous museums archiving the town’s history. Colony Beach is just a 10 minute walk away.

The Captain Fairfield In Kennebunkport, ME, where we were lucky to stay for 2 nights, was absolutely magical. This bed and breakfast was under a new management, and we were very happy to meet the wonderful innkeepers MaryAnn and Rodolfo. We cannot express our appreciation enough to them for all their help. The room was extremely comfortable, very luxurious. and equipped with very modern technology including tablet and Apple's attachment for TV. Many good words deserved Roger who helped us a lot with this sophisticated technology. Special appreciation deserves MaryAnn and Rodolfo amazing culinary skills. The breakfasts were simply the best by taste and presentation and so delicious and healthy that we asked for the recipes and made the photos of every dish. The hotel is in a great location: near ocean, stores, restaurants and interesting sites. We highly recommend staying at this bed and breakfast if you want your stay in Kennebunkport to be absolutely luxurious.
