Wanderlust Wednesday: Captain Fairfield Inn

This summer I am going on adventure. All three of my children will be away at camp for over four weeks. This never has happened before and likely will never happen again.

I had grand visions of Peru, Iceland and other exotic locales. Planning and time got in the way.  Yet, I have devised a wonderful trip that will take me to some of the most desired summer spots in the US.

My husband and I will be headed on New England tour for 10 days. We will visit Maine, Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard.

I have paired up with one of my favorite hotel chains, Lark Hotels, to devise the perfect itinerary. You may remember last summer I stayed at the fabulous Gilded boutique hotel in Newport, Rhode Island. This summer I will be staying at three of their properties and I cannot wait!

The first stop will be the Captain Fairfield Inn.


Classic and modern in equal measure, this boutique inn is Kennebunkport chic at its finest.


Overlooking the river green and just one block from the lively Kennebunkport harbor, Captain Fairfield Inn offers unexpected pleasures, such as a wine tasting room (and carefully selected wine list)


and an outdoor lounge with fire tables.



Splurge-worthy sea salt chocolate chip cookies and masterfully prepared breakfasts satisfy even the pickiest chow hound.


The interiors are eclectic and colorful…









The signature breakfast bar of small plates was a huge hit last visit!

      • Free wireless Internet throughout the Inn and grounds
      • Freshly baked sea salt chocolate chip cookies
      • Lounge with a wood burning fireplace
