Peace and quiet with a side of Ocean

4.4 on October 24, 2010

We visited the Captains House on our way further north and were sorry we had but one night to stay. The owners and staff were welcoming and provided for a wonderful time. The breakfast was great with several things from which to choose, and the porch was a great place from which to start the day! The lawn goes directly to the rough granite shoreline - it was wonderful to just sit and soak in the sun, view and ocean air. The rooms were well furnished and comfortable, the common rooms very relaxing. Can't wait to return.

breathtaking setting

Magnificent view upon arrival and was warmly greated by host Howie and dog. Sue relayed a knowledgable review of the area and the home, They both made our visit very special, Our room was beautifully decorated and we enjoyed the relaxing breakfast on the porch, The granola was excellent, The view from the whole house was remarkable, Such a cozy setting!

If you are looking for a wonderful and peacful getaway..this is the place! Yet it is so convenient to many other activities if you aren't going to give yourself downtime..yet this place will help you really relax alot. The innkeepers, Susan and Howard, are really great folks..they make you feel welcome and are there for any info you want or need, yet not intrusive. The pics and descriptions on the website are right fooling! The ocean and rocks are right at your finger tips, the islands and light house views are well as the beauty of the property, flower garden, etc. Breakfast is really nice...a good blend of morning food and a relaxing atmosphere...and always a different warm yummy breakfast cake. We were there 3 nights and regret we couldn't stay longer...we will next time! Thanks, Susan and Howard! You're the best!!!

Breathtaking ocean view

4.0 on September 28, 2010

This is a wonderful bed and breakfast home with unbelieveable ocean views. You can't get any closer to the rocks and water than this. We've stayed here two years in a row and plan to return again. Gretchen and Tim are very friendly and helpful to recommend nearby places to dine. I would recommend Captain's House to anyone who wants a quiet place to relax and enjoy the ocean views.

We've stayed here three times!

We love it here! We love the privacy, the proximity to the ocean, the sun porch in Room 1, and the homemade granola. We enjoy coming here because it is a quiet place to read, rest and relax with a beautiful view of the ocean. . .We look forward to our next stay at the Captain's House.
