Gracious hospitality, lovely rooms, generosity in all aspects, but the icing on the cake is their food! Breakfasts are a treat and then add their cream teas in the afternoon and nighttime cookies! All around a memorable experience. The courtesy of their staff is unparalleled. Thank you.

Property's Favourite Review
My husband & I loved everything about Captain's House Inn!! Beautiful grounds & location. Staff were wonderful (Lauren & Mary) greeted us at check in, so welcoming & personable. We stayed in Lady Hope and I was beyond pleased, it was so quaint and has all the necessary toiletries. We were served tea & scones in the back patio, it brought me back in time as if we were in a London garden. Breakfast was even better, made to order omelet with pesto & mozzarella cheese. I'm drooling thinking about it!! I am so happy knowing this kind of old fashion Inn accommodation and service still exist, that delivers special attention and create beautiful memories. We will definitely stay again if I'm fortunate enough to return, I'll make sure we'll stay multiple nights this time :))

My wife and I stayed here for four nights in mid-August 2021. On the positive side, the breakfasts were very good, the staff was accommodating and the grounds were spacious and well maintained. HOWEVER, our room, the Whirlwind, was terrible. It was dark, musty and did not have proper HVAC. They had installed a noisy temporary AC unit because the usual AC was out. The toilet did not work very well, paint all over the room was chipped and there was no closet for our hanging clothes only a small armoire, the door to which kept crashing into some of the random used furniture every time we opened it. The room was cluttered with unusable Salvation Army furniture and in the middle of the room were two huge chairs which took up most of the space. These chairs were totally different from the smaller ones shown on the website. Finally, the mattress was very soft and my wife found it very difficult to sleep on. The Inn should be embarrassed about charging $390 a night for this room. On our way home we stayed at a Hampton Inn, hardly a top of the line hotel, but it had much better amenities.

We appreciate you taking the time to review us. We are saddened to hear that you did not enjoy your room. Many guests have previously stayed in the Whirlwind room and have been overwhelmingly happy with their stay. We apologize for the temporary AC unit, we are in the process of getting the original replaced. The Whirlwind room, along with all other 16 rooms, contains more 'antique' furnishings which adds to the 1800 charm of the place. While it may be easy to compare the inn to a hotel or a resort, that is simply not what we are. It is disheartening for us that at no point during your stay did you express any concern to us that you were not happy with your room. If you had communicated your concerns with us, we would have been more than happy to resolve the situation by offering you another room we had available. We always encourage guests to let us know if anything during their stay is unsatisfactory so that we can do our best to resolve the issue.

We stayed here for several nights while on a visit to Cape Cod. From check in to check out we felt very pampered. The Elizajane Suite is cozy but felt plenty spacious enough for my husband and me . The bathroom is huge! Breakfasts are cooked to order from a large menu of choices and a delicious afternoon tea is served as well. The grounds are lovely and offer many places to sit and relax. But the very best part of this lovely inn is the staff who all go out of their way to make each guest feel welcome.

Everyone from the manager to wait staff were wonderful and interested in the best experience for the guests. We were greeted by the manager and showed the layout of the facilities. They truly seem to care for their guests. Some nice touches include fresh baked cookies in the evening if you skipped dessert at dinner. We did take advantage of this. In the morning, they offer a full breakfast. We are familiar with the area but listened as the waitress gave other, out of state visitors, ideas on where to spend the day. She was spot on with her recommendations. The breakfast was individually prepared and perfectly presented. Our room reservation was changed several times due to issues at the inn. Each time we were offered our choice of available rooms and were offered an "extra" and chose a cheese plate in return for the changes. We ended up in the Captain Hiram Harding Room. The room was massive with a king size bed, two recliners and a couch and room to move around. The bed and linens were very comfortable and the room was quiet. The only negative to our whole visit was that the room smelled musty. It needed a good airing out. The windows opened but only stayed open with a stick. I would love to give the Inn a five star rating. It may be that the room had not been used in some time due to Covid,

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us. We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us, and we truly appreciate the kind comments about our staff! We are very sorry you found the Hiram Harding room musty. Unfortunately, as much as we clean it and air it out, it does tend to get that way. The Hiram Harding room is part of the original 1839 building, and with it being such an old building, sometimes that musty smell can occur. We appreciate the feedback and will look into other ways we can approve this issue with the room. We hope you stay with us again one day!
