Bev Davis and husband Rick Litchfield are celebrating their 35th Anniversary as keepers of the inn! 35 years ago, as a young couple fresh from the corporate world of advertising, they closed on their purchase of the Captain Lord Mansion on June 15th, 1978. Bev was a Regional Advertising Manager for McDonald’s Corporation, employed in their Albany office covering all of upstate New York. Rick had been employed as an Account Manager with Madison North, a small advertising agency in Schenectady, NY. One of his client’s was McDonald’s Corp. and the McDonald’s Restaurants in the Capital District market; that was how Bev and Rick met! Bev, as Ad Manager, was effectively Rick’s boss; and nothing much has changed! However, they each have their own areas of expertise and blend their work very well together. Bev does the decorating (including the tiling), gardening and supervises the food preparation while Rick supervises the office staff, maintains the website and does the social marketing. He is also involved in Community Service, currently serving as President of the Kennebunkport Historical Society Board of Directors.
Who knew that we would spend the next 35 years of our lives, raising two children, being involved in the Kenneubnkport community and creating one of the most heralded and romantic bed & breakfast inns in New England. We certainly did not! We have been blessed with good health and we love our work; thus, we hope to remain as innkeepers for many more years. God willing! Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
What is the “Dime for Time” Program?
For each guest stay in 2013, we shall again pledge a multiple of dimes to benefit the American Cancer Society for breast cancer research. We multiply the number of 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 2012 we raised and donated over $12,000 for breast cancer research.
This original breast cancer fundraising event was created to honor Bev’s sister, Lois Ann Fincher who passed away in 2003 after a long battle with breast cancer, almost 10 years!
The “Dime for Time” Campaign culminates each year on the last Sunday and Monday of November when selected New England area breast cancer survivors receive a complimentary two-night stay at the our intimate Kennebunkport Coast Bed & Breakfast.
If you would like to nominate someone for this complimentary getaway to the Captain Lord Mansion, a Southern Maine Coast B&B, please send us an email at email@example.com. Please tell us something about your nominee, as well as giving us the individual’s contact data (phone number, mailing address and email address).
We look forward to a 4th year of fundraising success in 2013!
Your innkeepers, Bev Davis and Rick Litchfield

Captain Lord Mansion donates its used amenities to Haiti!
Do you ever wonder what we do with our used amenities? For a number of years we have been donating the Captain Lord Mansion used amenities to a misson to Haiti. A gentleman and his wife come by the inn several times a year and pick up totes full of used items. They sanitize and repackage everything for shipment on to Haiti. We are pleased that our used soap, shampoo, conditioner and body cream are not being thrown into a landfill or incinerated. This is one more way we at the Captain Lord Mansion are being environmentally responsible as well as helping out those less fortunate than ourselves. Your innkeeper, Rick Litchfield
