The design style of The Captain Lord Mansion showcases a maritime aesthetic. The walls are covered in antique sailing maps, and photographs and paintings of sailing vessels. The romantic bed and breakfast blends an intimate feel of a quaint New England inn with all the luxury amenities you’d find at a full-serve resort. Each crevice of the house has been prepped specially by the innkeepers, Bev Davis and Rick Litchfield, who have been looking after the inn for more than 35 years.

Each floor features antique art, watercolors, paintings and trinkets that make the inn feel like home, while still giving the perception that you’ve stepped back in time. The guest rooms are all designed differently, each with a little special hand-sewn blanket, coverlet, window drape or crocheted pillow from Davis. The rooms are all decorated in unique themes, so make sure to check out the history of your guest room while you’re staying there.

Stepping into the Gathering Room is like walking into your family dining room, complete with linen napkins, rustic pottery and a roaring fireplace. In the basement of The Captain Lord Mansion you’ll find a gift shop, where you can purchase everything from bathrobes and linens to wine stoppers, and Maine-landscape coasters.

Our favorite little alcove in The Captain Lord Mansion is the wine nook — an old staircase next to the reception room where vinos are on display, allowing guests to pick and choose bottles they’re interested in or get a sneak peek at what the inn will open for a tasting later that night. Leave no pillow unturned or corner undiscovered as you make your way through the Mansion — one of the best things about The Captain Lord Mansion are the hidden gems you’ll find throughout.
