The Captain Lord Mansion Bed & Breakfast Inn Asks: "What is the Kennebunkport Festival? And When Is It Scheduled?"

Kport Festival logo The Kennebunkport Festival began six years ago as a modest event called "Arts in the Inns".  It was held the first weekend in June and featured local artists personally showing their work in the various area bed and breakfast inns.  The last several years the event grew into the Kennebunkport Fine Living Festival with an additional emphasis on fine food and wine being paired with the art.  The food and wine events became paramount with tented, open air venues of wine/food tastings, art shows and also there were extraordinary culinary dinners by renowed local chefs and these dinners were hosted at private homes.  Also, there were very special dinners held at the world famous White Barn Inn.  This year the Festival will again be the first weekend in June and the events have been expanded to appeal to even more visitors to Kennebunkport.  We at the Captain Lord Mansion can assist you in planning which events might be of interest to you.  Also, as part of our memebrship in the Historic Inns of Kennebunkport, we are sponsoring the "Brews and Tunes" event to be held at the Pilot House Boat Yard, from 3pm to 6pm, Saturday, June 4th.  We'll have discount tickets to that event for our guests.  Check out the Festival Website for a detailed calender of events and make your plans now to be in Kennebunkport that weekend!  Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

Where can you find Leonard's Antique beds at a Bed & Breakfast Inn in Kennebunkport?

Why, the Captain Lord Mansion of course!  Bev and I made our first visit to Leonard's Antiques in March of 1979.  CLM guests from Seekonk, MA introduced us to Leonard's; we had never heard of the place!  What a fortuitous visit; our first purchase was the beautiful highboy that presently sits in the Mansion's main hallway by the office door.  That purchase was financed by an income tax refund check we received that year.  However, the most important part of our visit to Leonard's was meeting the owners, Jeff Jenkins and his dad.  That began a 30 year relationship with Leonards and we have purchased almost all of the Mansion's and Captain's Garden House's four-poster beds from them.  Jeff's dad has retired, but Jeff now has his sons in the business.  We long ago furnished all of the guestrooms at the Captain Lord Mansion with magnificent beds; however, we often will visit Leonard's when we are looking for small decorative pieces to add to rooms.  Leonard's made national news when they supplied a bed to President and First Lady Obama!  Above is a picture of our guestroom Hesper and one of Leonard's beds.  Leonard's recently appraised our 20 beds for over $250,000.  We are grateful that we are not purchasing the beds today!  However, if you are searching for just that right Christmas gift for your loved one, I am sure that Jeff Jenkins could find a bed for you.  Your innkeeper Rick Litchfield

Spring Arrived Early In Kennebunkport!

Exterior_001_300dpi Welcome Early Spring!  The weather has been unusually warm, spring flowers are blooming early, robins are plump and plentiful around the inn's grounds and we have cleaned the gardens of the winter detritus!  We've pressure washed the lawn chairs and put them out on the lawn.  Also, the Memory Garden fountain has been cleaned and is now gurgling away matching the songs emanating from the garden waterfall.  Imagine sitting in the sun while on our delightful garden swing listening to the sounds of spring.  Bev and I look forward to welcoming you to the Captain Lord Mansion some time this spring.

Where Can You Find and Experience Bathroom Remodeling Ideas?

The answer to that question is Kennebunkport, Maine and specifically, the Captain Lord Mansion. If you are thinking of remodeling your bathroom at home, Bev and I suggest you reserve one of our guest rooms at the Captain Lord Mansion to experience specific remodeling ideas in action.  We have guest rooms with heated marble or tile floors; yummy!  Also, there are baths with the latest in air-jetted tubs, much more sanitary and less work to clean than the old style water-jet tubs.  Additionally, we have rooms that have double shower heads, hydro-therapy body jets and one room (Hesper) that has a terrific 6-jet wall system.  Our office staff has experienced all these units and are pleased to share with you their feelings about any of our special bath features. The bath pictured above  is located in the Champion Room; it has an Italian tile fountain, Roman style air-jet double tub and double vanities.  It is the ultimate in luxury!  You can watch the Home and Garden Channel, the Do It Yourself Channel or you can experience bath remodel ideas first-hand at the Mansion!  Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield

What are Fantastic Fortune Cookies and Where Can You Find Them In Kennebunkport?

Cindy of FFC
Cindy Francis, founder of Fantastic Fortune Cookies

The secret to "Fantastic Fortune" Gourmet Cookies are their great taste and fun size.

"Fantastic Fortune" cookies are the same shape as a typical fortune cookie but they are about the size of a grapefruit!  They have the classic crisp fortune cookie texture and consistency and even a trace of traditional fortune cookie essence, but they are absolutely delicious.  Click on the link to read all about these "Fantastic Fortune" cookies.

MINI-fortune cookies
Our slightly smaller fortune cookie, the “Mini”

Don’t let the name MINI fool you. These are generous gourmet fortune cookies about the size of a large naval orange. They have a general good fortune inside. Each cookie is cello wrapped and heat sealed and tied off with a colorful polka dot ribbon.

During the Month of February, as part of our "February is For Lovers" marketing effort, the Captain Lord Mansion located in Kennebunkport, Maine will be giving away a Mini "Fantastic Fortune" Cookie with each room rented.  Each cookie will contain a surprise gift. The different offers include a free night at the inn, a free spa treatment at the inn, a free CLM limited edition coffee mug or a $25 discount coupon. We look forward to seeing you in February and happy fortune hunting!  Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
