This stately manor, built in the 1870's by the owner of the local lumberyard and master shipbuilder and later purchased by Great Lakes Captain Charles Montague, has welcomed people from all corners of the world. Guests are invited to rest, relax, and refresh in an atmosphere of an almost forgotten turn-of-the-century luxury as well as the warmth and coziness that pervade the property. Nestled in the heart of Lake Erie's Coastal Ohio, the Captain's is a quiet sanctuary, yet its location is minutes to many attractions. Guests have just a short walk to the beach at Lakefront Park and Huron's famous fishing pier and lighthouse, as well as the Huron River with its 110-dock municipal Boat Basin and Amphitheater where there is FREE live entertainment every weekend during the summer months. Ohio's oldest, continuous summer theater, the Huron Playhouse, is just around the corner from the Captain's. Looking for lighthouses, biking, hiking, birding? Want to ride the world's tallest and fastest rollercoasters or sample wines or expand your knowledge of Lake Erie's colorful and varied history? It is all here in Huron, OH and at the Captain's where detailed concierge service is happily provided to all guests. We guarantee impeccable, award-winning accommodations. . .rest assured!

Our stay was absolutely perfect. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, everything exceeded expectations. Judy and Mike were so kind and welcoming and the home was gorgeous. Judy served up an amazing breakfast for us and her and Mike treated us so wonderfully. As first time B&Br's we were blown away by the hospitality and the accomodations. What a perfect place to celebrate our engagement. I look forward to our next visit and can't wait to go back! Thank you so much Judy and Mike for everything! Michael and the future Allison Cassandra

We just returned from Captain Montagues. This was our sixth year in a row that we have gone to this wonderful B & B. We join three other couples each year to just relax and unwind. Judy and Mike are wonderful hosts and are very accommodating. They go out of their way to make sure that everyone is having a good time. The rooms are so comfy and immaculate and the breakfast is absolutely delicious. If you are looking for a place for a special occasion or just looking for a getaway this is your place. I highly recommend it!! Cheryl P.

Our weekend was originally planned around a culinary excursion to Chez Francois in Vermilion, OH. We learned about Captain Montague's from the restaurant's website, & so we decided to stay there. We were not disappointed. Judy & Mike are marvelous hosts who made us feel welcome from the moment we entered their lovely home. Breakfast was such fun conversing with the other guests, & Judy whipped up some great treats. Highly recommended is her Peach French Toast...to die for!

We visited Huron for our wedding anniversary. We wanted something on the lake, but away from some of the hustle-and-bustle of Catawba/Put-in-Bay area. Captain Montague's was a wonderful find. The innkeepers are knowledgeable and so very helpful -- helping us find just the type of activities of interest and putting us in touch with wonderful places to eat and visit. The home is a showcase. That said, it's also approachable and welcoming, as are the innkeepers and guests. We'll be coming back here!

We recently spent four nights at Captain Montague's Bed & Breakfast. The hosts, Michael & Judy, were very welcoming and did everything they could to make our stay just what we wanted. Judy went out of her way to provide a somewhat specialized diet for me each morning, and one day when we wanted to get a very early start, she had a breakfast ready and waiting for us in the fridge. The hosts also went out of their way to provide information about the surrounding area and the attractions we would most likely want to see, based on information we provided about our interests. The room was very clean and the bed extremely comfortable. The home is situated within easy walking distance of a city park, the lighthouse, library, and eating establishments. Judy provided us with a brochure describing the history of several homes in the historic district (their house is one of the homes on the tour) and we enjoyed an evening of walking in the neighborhood and reading about the homes we were seeing. All in all, this B&B was one of the most enjoyable we have stayed in, and we would definitely recommend it to others

Judy and Mike Tann
Mike, retired Huron City Manager, & Judy, a 'retired' professional, both enjoy people and hosting social events. They take great pleasure in music, reading, walking, volunteering...and their 2 adult sons. And since Mike has a Celtic heritage and the blarney that goes along with it, the Irish influence is evidenced in the home including the lilting strains of Emerald Isle music
