Great location. The breakfasts were outstanding. Our room was very large. Nice linens and great pillows. Walking distance to town. Rooms were very clean. Loved the sun porch. You can't go wrong with this inn. The staff was excellent.

Yes, the Captain Jefferds Inn is indeed a non-smoking property. I believe that all lodging properties in Maine are, by law, non-smoking.
