Description

Circa 1872. Abundant in history, space and charm, Captain Stannard House is a sea captain's manor located on the Connecticut shore in quaint Westbrook. Experience this all-season home away from home for a romantic winter getaway, spring renewal, autumnal adventure or summer love at the beach. Stay in a delightfully furnished guest bedroom with individual climate control, desk and sitting area. Anticipate a satisfying candlelit breakfast in the warm and inviting dining room. Linger with morning coffee or an evening glass of wine by the fire in the great room or on the huge south porch overlooking landscaped grounds. Add a piece to the ongoing jigsaw puzzle in the Captain's Room. Visit the nearby casinos, go to the theater and take a wine-tasting tour of Chamard Vineyard. Ask about specials and packages.

Cozy B&B

Very comfortable and cozy place to stay. Breakfasts were delicious and delightful. The owners, Jim and Mary are the sweetest people ever -- they are both so charming. The rooms were very cute and the spacious porch is a great place to sit and relax. Also it is close to many attractions including Mystic, Foxwoods/Mohegan Sun, Hammonasset Beach State Park, and more! Overall a great stay!

What a great time we had!!!!

We visited the Captain Stannard House on Friday & Saturday (4/10 & 4/11) using our "free night" coupon. Friends joined us. Mary and Jim were the most wonderful host/hostess who were attentive but never felt intrusive. Our rooms were delightful. Very quiet, nicely appointed and the linens were top notch. We arrived around 7:30 p.m. and there was a note with information on our rooms and keyless entry. We never saw Jim or Mary Friday night (which was fine). Breakfast both days was homemade and outstanding. Jim prepares the meal, Mary (and Kelly and one of Mary's grandsons) assisted her. Such a wonderful way to start your day. The porch is just as it's pictured. Warm and inviting. We arrived back at the Inn Saturday p.m. around 8 and played games at the game table till after 10:00 p.m. Then headed upstairs to bed to find 2 delicious oatmeal cookies (Jim's vanishing cookies) awaiting us on the bureau. The first night we had delectable brownie bites. What a nice touch. I would say...stay here...a million times over. Gracious, kind hosts, central location, very accommodating and the accommodations themselves were terrific. We'll be back :)

Nothing Better

The Innkeepers, Mary, Jim and "right hand gal" Helen, provide a B&B experience that is unparalleled. The Inn is meticulous and the breakfast delicious. Aside from touring the Connecticut River Valley, we spent long, lazy hours on the south porch. Mary's attention to detail leaves nothing lacking. And if there is something you need/want that you don't see provided, Mary will happily and promptly see that you get it. We were more than "just comfortable" there. This is the 8th reunion in various venues of our group of 19 and everyone agreed overwhelmingly that it was the best and we would return next May.
