Inn receives small business award

The Captain Lord Mansion, an inn and spa located on Pleasant Street in Kennebunkport, has won the Blue Ribbon Small Business Award from the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

The chamber said it received a record number of applications for this year’s award, which judges businesses on areas including strategic planning, employee and community development, and customer service.

Bev Davis and Rick Litchfield have run the inn for 37 years and have previously been named Masters of New England Innkeeping by the New England Inns and Resorts Association for making “an indelible mark on the culture of New England hospitality.”

The Captain Lord Mansion is now eligible for one of seven regional finalist slots to be named by the U.S. Chamber March 18, leading to the awarding of the “Dream Big” Small Business of the Year Award at the chamber’s annual summit, to be held in Washington D. C. June 8-10.
