2014 Bed and Breakfast Stays for Vets Each year, the Captain Lord Mansion celebrates the sacrifices offered by our courageous vets by offering free rooms on or around Veteran’s Day. We are excited to honor men and women, either active or retired, to our Annual “B&B’s for Vets” celebration. This is our Bed and Breakfast Stays for Vets package! The Captain Lord Mansion will open its doors on Sunday, November 9th and Monday, November 10th, 2014. To thank veterans for their service we have reserved a number of rooms which a free to veterans on those dates on a “first call” basis. Looking forward to serving you! Your innkeepers, Bev Davis and Rick Litchfield
What is the “Dime for Time” Program?
Beginning in January 2014, we again pledged a multiple of dimes per each guest visit to benefit the American Cancer Society for breast cancer research. We multiply the number of initial guest visits by five and previous guest visits by a factor of ten! With about 75% of our Captain Lord Mansion guests being repeat visitors, the amount we donate adds up! Between 2010 and 2013 we raised and donated over $17,000 for breast cancer research. Thus, we offer many dimes for breast cancer research to give women more time!
This original breast cancer fundraising event was created five years ago to honor Bev’s sister, Lois Ann Fincher, who passed away in 2003 after a ten-year long battle with breast cancer!
The “Dime for Time” Campaign culminates each year on the last Sunday and Monday of November (Nov. 30 & Dec. 1, 2014) when selected New England area breast cancer survivors receive a complimentary two-night stay (A Breast Cancer Survivor Escape) at our intimate Kennebunkport Bed & Breakfast. We provide the ladies and their husbands or close friends with 2 nights of complimentary lodging, 2 delicious breakfasts, a reduced price dinner at On the Marsh, a local fine-dining restaurant as well as surprise gifts. One of those gifts is a “HugWrap.” We discovered this remarkable item and its creator Brenda Jones when she was invited to the very first survivor weekend. I recommend that you click to her link and read her remarkable story.
We are building to a 5th year of fundraising success in 2014!

1. Get the same rates. Hotels, inns and resorts often guarantee the best rate on their website and are usually happy to match rates you find on an OTA website. Why? They pay up to a 30% commission on bookings that come through an OTA.
2. Get a better experience. Direct bookers are highly-valued guests, and inns and resorts often show their appreciation by including free extras or giving direct bookers better rooms. Plus, changes to your reservation are much simpler.
3. Keep your dollars local. When you book directly with an inn, resort, or hotel, they keep more of the money — OTAs can charge up to a 30% commission. That savings goes toward improving your stay, and goes further to support the local community.
So, book direct with the reservation desk at the Captain Lord Mansion and we guarantee the lowest possible rate for your reservation!
