The Captain Stannard House Bed and Breakfast, the Inn of Choice, is located on the Connecticut shoreline, in quaint Westbrook. Just off Boston Post Road (RT 1), we are midway between New York City and Boston, one hour from Hartford with easy access to RT 9 and I-95. It is your perfect destination in every season. It is the ideal atmosphere to explore spring love, one charming block from the beach in summer, the perfect setting to experience autumn in New England and ideal for a romantic winter getaway. Anticipate a visit to the nearby wineries, casinos, shopping outlets, theatres, museums and much more. We offer nine beautifully appointed guest rooms with private baths, comfortable queen beds, freshly pressed cotton linens, individual climate controls, desks and sitting areas. We welcome group events, small or large, including weddings and rehearsal dinners. Our warm and inviting Dining Room can seat 35 comfortably. Linger by the fire in our outstanding Great Room or on our spectacular South porch overlooking the gardens and Gazebo. Come. We have it all. Take the train, we'll pick you up. After your stay with us, you will have found your own perfect home away from home.
