Have You Had Your Picture taken with the Captain Lord Mansion's Dogs, Nate and Toby?

Dogs1 
Nate and Toby wait patiently on the side lawn of the Captain Lord Mansion to warmly greet you upon your arrival at our Kennebunkport bed and breakfast inn.  We thought it would be a neat idea to have guests this season take their picture with these two fellows and then we'll put the pictures on our company "Facebook" Page.  We like the idea that these sentinels don't require feeding or cleaning up after!  They are an undetermined breed and somewhat fierce looking; however, looks are deceiving because they are gentle as lambs.  None-the-less, they do stand guard over the inn's famous "Memory Garden" making sure that no one moves their engraved stones!  We look forward to receiving (or taking) your picture, your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

Did You Know That Kennebunkport Ranked 9th in The U.S. For Summer Vacations?

Kennebunkport Harbor 
The Kennebunks made number 9!

9. Kennebunkport, Maine
The old-time fishing village of Kennebunkport is like a Currier and Ives print come to life (it's also the summer retreat of choice for George H.W. Bush). You can work on a lobster boat, fly-fish, or kayak past whimsical formations like Blowing Cave and Spouting Rock. Stroll by elaborate Federal and Victorian manses built by sea captains, many now housing inns, or experience history in motion at the Seashore Trolley Museum. Kennebunkport's riverside Dock Square teems with shops and galleries selling stoneware and watercolor seascapes, eco-chic boutiques stocking organic body gels, and of course purveyors of local blueberry jams. Old Orchard Beach features New England's only oceanfront amusement park where you can get your thrills on the Ferris wheel and roller coasters.  Tip: Enjoy live jazz several nights weekly at 95 Ocean, which also offers a great prix fixe pre-theater dinner.

You may actually stay in one of the old sea captain's mansions; the Captain Lord Mansion was built in 1812. It is a luxurious Kennebunport bed and breakfast inn which is open year round. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
