One night is too short a stay, you'll soon realise, at this haven of seaside tranquility, perfectly located at the water's edge, with views across the sea to islands and their lighthouses. The welcome is warm but unfussy (a good thing), making you feel perfectly at home - and ready to relax - in no time. Take a drink out... More

Upon pulling into the driveway of this property, you will know that you made a great decision on where to stay. The view of the ocean is breathtaking and the pictures online don't do it justice. My friend and I stayed at the Captain's House over a long weekend. We were greeted right away and checked into our guestroom- Room... More

Unfortunately, we only had time to stay one night here. We had just finished a swing through Vermont and New Hampshire and were headed back for one last night in Boston. Rockport is approx 40 miles from Boston but it seems a world away. This stay was quiet and relaxing. You have several options regarding where you can sit to... More

We stayed two nights at the end of a busy Boston vacation. It was perfect. Quiet and relaxing and the best views on the coast. Gretchen runs an amazing B&B. The house is beautiful and the service friendly. We spent both evenings in the Adirondack chairs with a bottle of wine watching the sunset. Hint: Rockport is a dry town,... More

We've stayed here twice in late May and June--once it was gray and drizzly and once it was bright sunshine with a fresh breeze. Both times we've been in Room #1, which has a view of Straitsmouth Island and Thatcher Island. Perhaps all the rooms do. Be sure to ask. The breakfasts are huge--hardboiled eggs, yogurt, fruit, coffee/tea, juices, fresh... More

My husband and I stayed at the Captain's House one weekend in the fall when the weather was perfect on land, but obviously there was a storm out at sea. The surf was incredible! We were able to leave the windows open and fall asleep to the sound of waves crashing against the granite ledges. The house is beautiful. We... More

The view is everything you see on the web and and more. The house is older and has character but no problems everything works as it should. The breakfast is more than you expect and the host was great.

My brand spankin' new husband and I stayed here for 2 nights at the end of August to wrap up our honeymoon. Gretchen was very accommodating considering that we left on Sunday and didn't stay for all 3 nights of the Labor Day weekend. We stayed on the second floor in a room from which we could see the twin... More

We stayed for two nights of the July 4th weekend -- a bonus in itself, since many B&B's in the area don't accept less than three night minimums. Our good fortune, as it turned out. The other reviews make it clear, but let there be no doubt at all: the location is fabulous. You can have morning breakfast looking over... More

I booked a room for three nights at the Captain's House in June and must say it was wonderful! The property is lovely and well-maintained and the rooms are charming. Best of all it's just a few steps away from the ocean crashing on the rocky coastline! Being there is like going back in time. The staff was so friendly... More
