Perfect getaway on Lake Erie!

My husband and I stayed at Captain Montague's last evening to celebrate our wedding anniversary! I have stayed at two B&B's before and was very disappointed both times. You will NOT be disappointed when you stay at Captain Montague's. The house is absolutely gorgeous with beautiful decorations and antiques. We stayed in the "Anniversary Suite". It is just stunning with a beautiful fireplace and great private bathroom. The owner is just so sweet and kind. You can tell she takes pride in her home and treats her guests as family. She made us a delicious Valentine's Day breakfast this morning and we sat next to a beautiful windows and enjoyed a picture perfect winter view out the window. I would recommend this Bed and Breakfast to anyone. I can't wait to stay there again. It was so comfortable and welcoming that I didn't want to leave this morning. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

My husband chose Captain Montague's as a surprise to celebrate our wedding anniversary. My first thought upon arrival was WOW! Captain Montague's is beautiful!!! We were in awe of the size, landscaping, decor and cleanliness of the home. We were greeted by Nancy who was very warm but professional. We felt very comfortable. We stayed in the "Jenny" which is the anniversary suite. The room included a fireplace and a celebrity style was perfect! Breakfast was SERVED at 9 am and I have never tasted anything as good as Nancy's fresh baked "monkey bread". We truly felt pampered and refreshed after just 1 night. So grateful! We will be loyal guests.

Fantastic stay

First of all we weren't supposed to be there at all. I called a B&B in Sandusky but they were going out of town and when I asked for a recommendation they immediately said 'Captain Montague' in Huron. So I called and spoke to Nancy and made our last minute reservation. She was more than happy to meet us there 2 hours before the normal check in time. It's a very clean and well maintained home and she was more than happy to show us around and answer out questions. We stayed in Sarah's Room and it was very clean, quiet and complete with an ensuite bath with tremendous water pressure. And the bed! Wow! We slept the sleep of the dead, waking refreshed and ready to take on Cedar Point. There's a sign there that says "Arrive a guest, leave a friend" and I like to think we did just that. Great people and a great place. You can't go wrong.

Anniversary Getaway!

We could not have asked for a better time. This was our first time staying at a bed and breakfast. What a great experience! Judy, our hostess, was pleasant, had great stories, and quite knowledgable. The accommodations were comfortable and relaxing. Cannot wait to go back!

The Perfect Get Away!!

We have stayed at Captain Montagues many times and were there again just this past weekend. We went with two other couples and it was so relaxing and we had such a good time!! The innkeeper, Judy is a wonderful hostess. The rooms are all so quaint and clean and the breakfast is very delicious!! Give this bed and breakfast a try. You will be so glad that you did!! Cheryl

Excellent B&B

Judy is one of the most friendly and gracious B& B owner we have ever stayed with. Her home is beautiful, immaculate and in a great location. We loved the pool area and the common areas of the house. Our room was tastefully decorated, and the Irish theme was prevalent throughout the house. What a great home and a truly wonderful experience. Sincerely, Aaron and Cheryl

Wish we could have stayed longer

Captain Montague's has location, history and a wonderful host. It is within easy walking distance to the Huron yacht basin and has easy access to the highway to reach the main attractions in the Lake Erie Vacationland area. Each of the rooms has it's own character and is spacious. The breakfasts are delicious and filling. The home originally belonged to a sea captain and the owner is a wealth of information not only on it but also the area. She truly makes you feel at home.

A wonderful Irish home in Huron, Ohio.

As experienced visitors to bed and breakfasts we were delighted to find a piece of Ireland in Huron. Captain Montagues is the most beautiful b and b we have ever visited. The hostess, Judy, is delightful and a great source of knowledge about the surrounding vacationland. The food was wonderful and the other guests very friendly.We are sure you will be as delighted as we were with the Captain's. Paul and Joan B.

A great place to stay

We only had one night to spend at Captain Montague's B&B but it was awesome. We were warmly greeted by Judy when we arrived in the afternoon. After checking in we had a little tour and a bit of history. We asked for suggestions for places to eat, hike and shop. We followed her suggestions and were so happy that we did. Our room was just beautiful as was the rest of the house. It is such a peaceful and calm retreat. Breakfast was delicious. There were snacks available and a wonderful choice of teas. It was just so nice to get away to such a welcoming place. I can't think of anything else that Judy could have done to make it better. I highly recommend Captain Montague's, you will love it. Thank you, Judy for a great stay.

About the innkeepers

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
