Description

Circa 1754. Surrounded by rolling hills and cornfields with stone walls in an historic village, this three-story New England Gambrel Colonial sits on more than one acre of lush landscaping with grass, flowers and a 300-year-old maple tree. Listed in the National Register, the bed and breakfast has been recently renovated and boasts hand-hewn beams and an authentically rebuilt seven-foot-wide staircase. Relax on the three-story deck or in the keeping room, library or fireside dining room. A guest refrigerator is stocked with complimentary soda, wine and beer. Dessert is an indulgence at any time of the day. Guest bedrooms feature canopy beds, open-beamed ceilings and bedside sherry. The adjacent Avery House offers two additional rooms with wood-burning fireplaces. Linger over an all-you-can-eat country breakfast each morning. A certified massage therapist is available.

Gorgeous

We had a beautiful weekend. The house is gorgeous and well-decorated and feels very homey. It's very affordable, and you get so much value for your money. The breakfast is a real homemade breakfast, and it's always delicious, and certain beverages and alcohol are free all day. Ted and Carol are so wonderful and they're incredibly helpful. We always looked forward to returning at the end of the day!

InnSide Tip - If staying in the Marie
There's a little bit of noise from the room above if anyone is staying there. Not terrible though.

Great experience

What a wonderful place. My husband and I traveled from North Dakaota and feel we made a great choice by picking Captain Grants as our place to stay. The location and hospitality were unbeatable. We would love to stay there again, but maybe longer than three days next time.

Always a wonderfull time!!!

Another great Stay. My husband and I stay here frequently as we live in the region. Our favorite room is Adelaide. We have always found this room to be very clean and enjoyable. Our last stay was in the Elizabeth room which was also very wonderful. Breakfast and the new pool room are the best. The Innkeepers make you feel like family. Can't wait for our next stay!!!

InnSide Tip - fireplace in Adelaide
If you like it cooler when you sleep... keep the fireplace turned low.

Four day stay in the country

The property is very charming and has some historical beauty and interest. The owners were very pleasant and accommodating. The cleanliness and repair were lacking unfortunately. There were cobwebs in our room(The Adelaide)and loose faucet handles. The breakfasts were lovely though.
