Captain Grant's is on the National Register of Historic Places. Built by a ship's Captain it is a great reminder of Colonial America. The home has an enviable location. It is the only lodging between Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun casinos. They are eight miles apart. Mystic Seaport Museum and Mystic Aquarium are but a short distance. Wineries surround us. The closest one is within five minutes. Six acres of groomed lawn with trees and flowers all spring and summer make the Inn the perfect place for a wedding or family reunion. Check out our virtual tour on .captaingrants. The home has been featured on HGTV, A&E Network and the Travel Channel. In 2010 it was voted a best of New England by Yankee Magazine.

Gracious hosts, awesome breakfasts. Loved the way the history of the Inn was presented with a local artist's mural depicting life as it was in the 1800's and scrapbooks showing newspaper clippings with information about the Inn and its current owners passionate effort to transform it back to its roots.

A very pretty location. The host was extremely nice and accommodating. Breakfast was delish! Definitely close enough to casino, mystic, winery, and brewery, location wise.

We stayed in the Elizabeth Room which was very nice with its own bathroom. Room was very clean and the hosts Carol and Ted were very friendly and informative about the house's history and the local area. The breakfast on Sunday morning was excellent and they even made special gluten free pancakes for my wife.

We had a great time. Ted and Carol were attentive. When we had a minor problem Ted was there in about 5 minutes and was able to fix the problem right away. The breakfast was a beyond delicious. I have never had such awesome french toast. We plan to go back as soon as we can. Thanks for the chance to have such a good experience.

We stayed at Captain Grant's for our first Bed and Breakfast experience. We had no idea what to expect - Ted and Carol made it so easy and it felt like we were staying with family. We met some wonderful people whom we hope to stay in touch with for a very long time. Would highly recommend Captain Grants!

The quaint accommodations and location was perfect for a weekend getaway. We were welcomed into the homestead and was provided with a variety of information to places to eat, maps, and suggestions as to what to see.

We drove up and were nicely met by Ted. He offered us tea and cake, and showed us where the wine was. Our room was called "ADELAIDE" . We slept well and only found out the next morning that our room was rumored to be haunted! We really liked that our hosts sat and had breakfast with us. A very nice place to stay.
Named after the wife of Captain Grant, this room features a queen-size bed and massive beamed ceilings. Guests say that it reminds them of an English country cottage.
Named after the last mistress to occupy the Inn as a home, this room features a four-poster canopied queen-size bed. The flooring, as in other rooms, is made of a hard heart pine - a species now extinct.
This room is similar to Elizabeth, although the bed is taller and features a small stair for climbing in. A 19th century sink sets off this bright, sunny room.
Named after the current owner, this is our largest room. It has a queen size iron sleigh bed and a twin bed. A futon mattress can be pulled out, providing sleeping comfort for two adults and two children (no children under 6 please) or three adults.
Pictured with its black marble and white mahogany wood-burning fireplace (firewood provided), this is our only room with true Victorian flair.
This room features a full-size bed and antique furniture (c. 1910). At the foot of the bed is a fully working 18th century fireplace. The fireplace exterior of wooden panels is authentic to the time period of the home.

Ted and Carol
Teamwork best describes Ted and Carol. They met in 1995 while Ted was a guest at the inn. Now newly married, they enjoy life, making breakfast, building furniture and improving Captain Grant's. Their enthusiasm and good cheer make Captain Grant's a home filled with warmth and camaraderie for their guests.
