Our Best B&B

5 on June 15, 2016

My wife and I are coming to the Captain's House Inn for 20 years. And we always love it! Great breakfast, elegant and tasteful tea time, cozy rooms. And there's always something new we discover. This year ((in May) we appreciated heated outdoors pool. Highly recommended place!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for your kind words and for taking the time to write a review for us. And a huge thanks for returning for the past twenty years - we cannot ask for a bigger compliment. We look forward to seeing you on a future visit!


Very Nice Stay!

Stayed at the Captain's House Inn while attending a conference elsewhere in town. The Inn was quite charming: clean room and bathroom, pleasant staff, nice amenities, manicured grounds, very nice breakfast. Plus there were extra nice touches such as turndown service, afternoon tea plus sherry/port in the main building if one wanted to indulge. I will definitely return.

Innkeeper Response

Best B&B ever.

Beautiful house. Antiques worth taking time to appreciate. Wonderful room with great bed, couch, comfortable chair and fireplace. The breakfast is cooked by a chef as ordered. I have never had a better breakfast. The afternoon tea is a treat not to be missed. We ordered coffee and tea delivered to the room in the morning which is included in your room fee! Their dinner recommendations were much appreciated. And the staff? OMG. Service that is above and beyond anything you expect except for the finest hotels in the world. Going back next year for sure.

Charming Bed and Breakfast

4.8 on May 07, 2016

I love the quaintness and the character of the house and the bedroom is very unique, just loved the canopy bed. The breakfast is not a typical breakfast, is more gourmet and it is served in a sunroom. The service is excellent, and they also booked our reservations for the restaurants in the area. They were very helpful in what attractions are in the area, and very good recommendations for restaurants.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to write this lovely review. We're so glad you enjoyed your getaway and hope to see you again.


Perfect

From Booking until departure everything was incredible. I can't say enough about the service provided. All of the staff were very attentive and cordial.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much! We love to hear this and I will pass your comments on to our staff. We hope to see you in the future!


Very thoughtful staff

3.8 on May 02, 2016

The only downside to our stay in the Clarissa suite were the two easy chairs. Once seated, very comfortable, but very difficult to get up from because of their lowness to the floor. The very spacious shower needs grab bars. We're in our 70s, so these two deficiencies stood out. That said, our stay of two nights was most enjoyable. The chef prepared delectable breakfasts and afternoon teas. Standouts were the several young women who served us during those times, and one in particular, Melina, I think, was very kind in seeing that my phone/iPad charger was found and sent back to me post haste. We would stay there again.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you so much for writing this lovely review. We're glad you enjoyed your visit, but are sorry the shower did not have a grab bar and the seats were too low to the ground for you. We would be happy to suggest another room if you return that does feature a shower grab bar and perhaps more suitable chairs. We will pass your compliments on to our staff - they will be delighted about the compliments. We hope to see you again!


Fantastic

Perfection!

Looking for a beautiful experience this is the place to go. There is great attention given to detail. The decor gives you the feeling that you have gone back in time it is just simply beautiful. They anticipate your every need and many truly not expected. Everything is well thought out and executed. The property is well maintained and relaxing. I can't say enough about the staff! Extremely welcoming and warm. Detail given to even the food and pastries which was delicious. At the Captain's House Inn you are treated like royalty!
