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.
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.

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.

My husband and I found a great deal on Groupon for a one night stay Sun - Thurs with a free ghost communications lesson and decided to use it for my birthday on Dec 27th. As soon as we arrived Ted greeted us with a big smile and showed us to our room, we stayed in the Collette room. The room was well equipped with warm bedding, lots of pillows (which I love) fresh towels, soap, shampoo, tv with cable, and a lovely crystal container with some sort of sweet liquor and two shot glasses which was really delicious and helped me fall fast asleep that night. My husband and I were a bit restless and hungry so we decided to go downstairs to have some of the most delicious complimentary lemon cake, coffee, and cookies in the dining room. We then made our way to the upstairs game room and played a round of pool. I loved that we had access to the entire house during our stay and the place really did feel like a home away from home. I can't emphasize enough how warm, and cozy the house felt and how comfortable we felt here. The next morning we shared the table with our neighbors and a few other guests for a large family style breakfast. Since we were the last to join the group, Ted was a magnificant host and reintroduced everyone to break the ice for good conversation at breakfast. The food was absolutely scruptious, waffles, new york style scrammbled eggs, ham, raspberry jam, coffee, freshly squeezed O.J., and apple cider. After breakfast Carol joined us and shared some very intersting history and a few stories, followed by the ghost communications lesson which was amazing and totally out of this world. Ted and Carol are two of the sweetest most generous and phenomenal human beings we've met. They deserve the sky, the stars, and a mountain of blessings. We were so happy with everything and would recommend Captain Grants in a heart beat to anyone looking for a comfortable, clean, warm, homely place to get away. Needless to stay we will be back VERY SOON!!! -! Jess and Dio

We booked a 2 nite stay at Captain Grants. Our stay was Sept 17 & 18th. We felt so comfortable on the 2nd morning; that we decided to see if our room was available for an additional night. It was & we stayed a 3rd night. The room was beautiful & comfortable. There was a beautiful game room, and the food was sumptous & ever-flowing. Ted & Carol were perfect hosts. The home felt "like home". Plan to return next year.

I stayed at Captain Grant's Inn for one night with my fiance, on July 3, 2013. We simply needed a "place to rest our heads" before visiting Mohegan Sun the next day, then driving the 1.5-hours home to MA for another 4th of July party. We arrived pretty late on July 3rd and actually found ourselves in the wrong room! The next morning, when I apologized and explained how we ended up in the wrong room, Ted was very kind and understanding. We had breakfast with the Innkeepers Ted and Carol, who are both very sweet and they've got some hilarious stories. They're great at getting the guests to speak amongst themselves. Luckily, there was a good mix of families there who came from afar (but still within the continental US), juxtaposed with CT residents looking to relax in this "hidden gem." And let me tell you, I think I'd like to come back with my future hubby for our one-year anniversary! The wedding is still a year away (and in MA), but Captain Grant's is splendid! It's a deal and a half... The staff is incredible and sweet, the rooms are clean and moderately spacious, and the grounds are gorgeously manicured. For all the ghost chasers, I hear it's haunted, too. ;)

This is such a beautiful Bed And Breakfast. The hosts, Ted and Carol were very accommodating and made the place feel like home. We stayed in the Colette Room, which is beautifully decorated and cozy! And of course.... the breakfasts were all delicious (we were there for 3 of them)! We're definitely going back the next time we head to the area!

Captain Grant's is a truly outstanding bed and breakfast. The house itself is gorgeous and extremely well taken care of. The rooms are beautifully decorated and they are very cozy! Bathrooms gorgeous as well. Breakfast every morning is delicious and there's always more than enough food. Most importantly, the hosts are wonderful people. They are more than willing to help you with anything, and they're also just lovely people to be around with really interesting stories. Breakfast is a joy to eat with them and to get to know the other guests. The place is not only comfortable, it's actually homey. We recommend it very highly.

My husband and I recently spent two evenings at Captain Grant's. We had such a great time. Ted and Carol are so accommodating. Breakfast was fabulous...lovely table setting, great food and a great group of people. We spent the entire breakfast hour chatting and laughing. Although we didn't experience any spirits, others of our group did and it was exciting to hear about it. The rooms are very cozy and nicely decorated. A place we will definintely return to. Exceeded all of our expectations.

This was our first time at a B&B and it was a great choice. Carol and Ted are absolutely super hosts. They made us feel very welcome and every breakfast was well planned and prepared. I would recommend this B&B without question. We hope to return soon.

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.
