Photo Tour: Kennebunkport's Captain Jefferds Inn

On an Indian summer day in October I stayed at a sea captain's home in Kennebunkport, Maine. Built in 1804, The Captain Jefferds Inn is an exceptionally and impeccably appointed bed & breakfast. It rates high in the romance department (think Valentine getaway). In my book, I give it 5 gold stars. Take a peek:
