Dear Friends and Family,
Busy today - visited the Strawberry Banke Museum, which was a Village with buildings setup in various ages, including 'cast members' nothing more enjoyable than trying to get them to come out of Character.
Then a visit to a New England Lighthouse.
Finally a trip to a Trolley Museum, this was the …
... a bus across America teaching people about permaculture and resiliency. They converted their bus to run on vegetable oil and used it as a tool to spread the word that communities can work together to be sustainable. As with everyone I've met in America so far, Lesley extended her hospitality and invited me to join her on a road trip tomorrow, she's going to show me Brunswick and some towns north of here on our way ...
It's well documented that communities pull together in times of need. I learnt about a great example of this when I was in Boston. Carol a timebank member told me about neighbors for neighbors. ( http://neighborsforneighbors.org/ ) An initiative set up by a Boston resident during a major snowfall. The website united people who were snowed into their houses or couldn't dig out their cars with people in their area who ...
Here is a collection of things I have learnt while in Portland. 1. The state bird of Maine is the Chickadee 2. A large number of Timebanks shut within 3 years of starting up. 3. Stephen and Louisa love The I.T Crowd 4. Whole Food stores are amazing 5. Nestlé have bought local water brand "Poland Springs" 6. The population of Portland is 55,000 and swells to 100,000 in summer 7. The Hour Exchange ...
Today I went out on Stephen and Louisa's boat. It was glorious, I wore my anchor vans and hoisted the main sail twice! The weather here is prone to change. As Louisa and Stephen said "if you don't like the weather wait a minute" Here are two pics of the same shot of the harbour, one with heavy fog and one clear ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Captain Jefferds Inn Kennebunkport
I'll fess up immediately with the admission that I am a fussy, demanding traveller. I am willing to pay, but better feel like it was worth it. And the Captain Jefferds Inn is absolutely worth every penny!
They usually require more than one night; however, they had a cancellation for the only night we were going to be there. It was the smallest room in the Inn, but...it was simply wonderful! Cosy, with robes, candy, fresh flowers & nightcap liqueurs. Wonderful beds & linens. Would go there gladly again!
Pretty close to a perfect place
Certainly one of the best B&Bs we've ever stayed in. Nicely decorated room, very clean and with all the charming details. Absolutely delicious breakfast. (Even took home the recipe.) We've never met a nicer, more accomodating staff. The location couldn't be better. Once you check in, you can leave your car in the parking area and walk to most places. Can't say enough about what a wonderful place the Captain Jefferds Inn is. You do need to be aware that they allow people to bring their dogs. Although we didn't bring our dog, we had plenty of fun meeting other guests and their dogs. Will definitely be going back and highly recommending the Captain Jefferds Inn.
The Captain Jefferds Inn is a real fine. The guest rooms, common areas in the main mansion, and the grounds are meticulously maintained. We stayed in the Brandywine room. The room was spotless and spacious. The furnishings were elegant and yet comfortable. There is a very comfortable king size bed. The bathroom was very large and well laid out.
Beyond our expectations.
We agree with all the steller reviews. We would choose this Inn as our vacation destination in the future, as we could not imagine staying anywhere else. The rooms are unique, as each room has it's own insperation. We have stayed in two very different rooms and the feeling you leave with is like going to a new location of the world each time.
The breakfast is to die for as are the linens. If we didn't have to get to our amazing breakfast we may have just stayed in our room all day. The location is perfect for getting to all the shops, restuarants and the local sights.
A must visit.
At the recommendation of friends who are in the know about Kennebunkport, we have stayed at the Captain Jefferds Inn, twice in fact. It is an absolutely wonderful B&B; they pay attention to EVERY detail. Rooms are authentic and beautifully decorated; great linens; comfortable (and very new) bathrooms. The breakfasts are over the top; a great treat. You will also enjoy the community areas of the home which are very open and airy, and find that the owners are very accommodating. You will LOVE the Captain Jefferds Inn, guaranteed. PS when you are in K-B don't miss out on having a lobster dinner at Mabels! Katie
Well worth a visit!
If you are going to Kennebunkport I feel this is a great choice to stay! Go for it! I had a lovely stay here. Good locations and nicely decorated rooms, and delicious breakfast.
We would love to visit again
The service was excellent and the breakfasts were delicious. It was my first time at a B and B and my husband and I enjoyed the experience very much. The inn is located just a couple of blocks from town which is very convenient. The rooms were beautiful. We are even talking about our next visit there. Enjoy!
My favorite place
I have stayed at The Captain Jefferd's Inn several times and each time it was wonderful. The rooms are beautiful, the finest linens and service second to none. The breakfast is amazing! It is a magical place and we can't wait to return.
It's all in the details
I have vacationed in Maine for the past 13 years, and Captain Jefferds is more than I can put into words. They pay attention to every detail,and every need you have, and they do it with compassion for their guests. I decided to try somewhere else this past year and left my vacation in tears, and wished I had stayed at the Captain Jefferds.
The breakfast is amazing. The rooms are gorgeous and the staff takes great measures to make sure your stay is wonderful. I will only stay here from now on, and may try to have my wedding there. Thank you Dick and Jane
