Each morning at our romantic Kennebunkport, Maine Bed and Breakfast, the Mansion’s talented breakfast cooks prepare a different family-style, multi-course breakfast which is served in the atmospheric Country Kitchen and the beautiful Dining Room. Each breakfast is a celebration of freshly prepared food using only the best ingredients such as freshly-squeezed orange juice, organically-farmed eggs, organic yogurt and Maine maple syrup.
It is the philosophy of the innkeepers at our historic B&B that the communal, family-style breakfast is a major part of the Captain Lord Mansion experience.
If we have a small group for breakfast, we usually serve at the antique Lord-family dining table in our Gathering Room. As the numbers increase, we serve in the Country Kitchen and if the crowd grows larger, we serve in both areas so everyone is allowed a choice of times for our family-style breakfast.
We serve at 8:15 am and again at 9:45 am year round. At many times during the year, we’ll have almost all the guests at one point or another, sometimes serving 26 to 28 folks at one time. That is a real test of the staff at our inn.
Our Menu Changes Day to Day!
Breakfast begins with choices including;
- Fresh Fruit
- Organic French-Vanilla Yogurt

The second course consists of tasty muffins served piping hot from the oven to the table!

Afternoon Snacks & Beverages
Return from your day’s activities to find a variety of cheese, crackers, fresh fruit and sweets served year-round in the Country Kitchen.
In the warmer months, beverage choices are flavored iced-coffee, iced-tea and lemonade.
In the cooler months, you’ll find “Swedish Glogg” (a non-alcoholic mulled cider and cranberry juice) which is kept simmering in a crock-pot on the antique stove in the kitchen.
