We only stayed for one night at the inn, but Jum was very welcoming on our arrival. Although breakfast is normally served at 9 on request we could have an early breakfast. As the inn is so close to the beach, they provide beach towels - what a great service! The only drawback we found is that in the room... More

I found the Captain Stannard House while looking for a quiet area in CT to spend a few days to relax. I wanted to be close to a beach but did not want to be around thousands of tourists. The house is gorgeous, lots of history adorns it, and you can read about it thanks to small placards throughout, telling... More

We had a fantastic experience staying with Jim and Mary at their beautiful B&B in Westboro CT. Everyone was very nice and they tended to ours needs with great joy. The breakfasts were incredible! As a former chef I really appreciate the effort they put in making these exceptional meals. The rooms were exactly as advertised, no surprise. Wait, there... More

Very nice looking, stylish and comfy old-style property, clean and comfortable room, excellent breakfast. Stayed just for one night by our trip down the coast from Boston to NYC, got very warm welcome with flexibly set-up price :) Charming place, with amazing and calm surrounding. Highly recommended.

We are two cyclists inspired to call it a day, as our knees started to strike. We needed to rest after been everyday biking 60 miles, non stop. We love the quiet and peace of Captain Stannard home. Our hosts very welcoming and art réceptive. As artistes we trade most of our stays with an exclusive painting we create on... More

I just returned from a wonderful weekend with my friends and scrapbooking customers. We had a wonderful time and hope to return next year. The Inn is gorgeous, rooms lovely and beds comfortable. We had a lot of room for cropping and it would be wonderful for any craft group. Jim and Mary helped us get settled and provided us... More

My scrapbook group stays at Captain Stannard each March for a long weekend. This year was our fourth year in a row. It's wonderful! Jim and Mary take great care of us and, as part of a special group package,provide all our meals, each one more delicious than the last! There is plenty of room for us to crop privately... More

Stayed two nights at the Captain Stannard. The inn keepers Mary and Jim were very welcoming and made us feel at ease at check in. The two breakfasts were worthy of a gourmet restaurant. The spacious inn was immaculate and tastefully furnished. The pride of the owners is apparent in all of the many rooms of the inn. We loved... More

This is a basic small-town B&B in an older house, rustic, not at all luxurious, but very clean and comfortable. It's a bit like staying at your grandparents' home. Jim and Mary are gracious, welcoming hosts. Jim printed some scenic drives for us and gave us good tips on selecting a restaurant for dinner. Our room was spacious, sparsely furnished... More

Spent two night at the Captain Stannard. We made a last minute decision to head out of the city for a few days. The innkeepers were very warm and inviting. The inn is comfortable and colonial. We were greeted with delicious cookies and wine in the room on the first night. The next day we had another delicious freshly baked... More
