We just stayed for the weekend at the Captain's House. It was our first time here, but hopefully it won't be the last. What a fantastic view, and the ocean and islands set up a peaceful retreat to enjoy to coast in Rockport MA. Very friendly, and the continental breakfast was good.

It was beautiful, friendly and the best location for anyone to stay! We were married on the grounds seventeen years ago, and now going back! Cannot wait! We are looking forward to seeing more of the area and the attraction's...fishing might be an option, 😊

I try to get back to this wonderful inn that is right on the ocean at least once a year. Unfortunately, life gets in the way and I am not always able to. This year we got an early get-away. Yes, it was mid-April. Yes, it was cold (even snowed). But with the wonderful windows and common sun porch, it... More

The house is huge and situated directly facing the ocean and the rock formations below the wall. This is a superb location and setting. We enjoyed our early morning and evening photo forays! The house is large and comfortable with a big living room with 2 open fires and large protected and open porches to choose from for seating choices... More

One simple word . . . GO! Captain's House is a wonderful spot to rest a relax, something we have done for decades. We go back to the time when Captain's House was owned and operated by the current owner's parents, who made everyone who came feel as though they had come to a little corner of paradise. Now, Gretchen... More

The location is beautiful as is the house. Nice rooms with a few creaks that you expect in an old house. Hubby and I did not like the bed or pillows in room 3. The other B &B I've been in usually serves a full breakfast, but here there was yogurt, coffee cake, fruit, granola and juice/coffee. Walked into town... More

The location of the Inn on a point jutting into the Atlantic is about as good as it gets. Almost every room has a superb ocean view and leaving the window open allows you to drifts off to the sound of the waves. The inn is clean and comfortable and serves an excellent breakfast. The owners were away during our... More

We're not fortunate enough to live on the coast, but whenever we come home from our yearly visit to the Captain's House, in our bedroom we have a sound machine which simulates the sound of the ocean,and we play that at night in a vain attempt to make us feel like we are still in Room One.

This is a challenging review to write because we were extremely pleased with the on water location with beautiful ocean views and Gretchen was a very pleasant, helpful host. Also, it was about a 20 minute easy walk to town with nice ocean views along the way if the ocean path was used. In the evening there was a wood/fire... More
