This was our first experience in a B&B where we stayed for two nights. This historical home is beautifully furnished and met all our needs. Our room was very comfy and we had a great view of the ocean and Thatchers Island with the twin lighthouses! When we arrived we were greeted by Trish who showed us around and offered... More

We stayed at this Inn from Sept 15-18th and found the views and location of this inn just fantastic, the breakfast was very good and was all we needed, this was the first time that we stayed at a B&B and the owners didn't find the time to introduce themselves to us and make you feel at home, we have...

We have been staying at Captain's House for many years now, and it never fails to delight. Gorgeous views with three lighthouses, lobster buoys, marvelous sunsets, and sounds that are guaranteed to make you forgot the ratrace back home. Freshly made breads and sweet rolls, fresh fruit, and varied goodies and very good coffee every morning. As we were deciding... More

My husband and I had a great stay at the Captain's House. The picture shown on this site is not current - the house is a bit more run down on the outside than this shows but it is still a beautiful house in an amazing location. We were in room #3. I was surprised by the fact that this... More

I think 2berried wrote a spot-on review in September 2013. I was thinking about giving Captain's House 3 or 4 stars but finally went for 4. We loved the location of the B&B. We stayed in room 1 and heard the ocean all night long as well as watched the sunset from our porch area. The sun porch will need... More

To all the read reviews! It does not get much better then the Captians House! When you walk in you actually feel like you own the place! The staff is very careful about making you feel that way! Each of the 5 bedrooms lend their own character! The sound of the ocean waves will be with you no matter what... More

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
