“October Weekend”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2012

My husband and I were very disapointed with our stay ,yes the bed is comfortable and the room was clean and neat and there were (2) cookies waiting for us , however I can't understand how everyone keeps braging about the breakfast (apparently they never stayed at a B & B before we have been to over 10 of them ) they served what they wanted to serve at 9:00 am , We had the same fruit each day with slices of pound cake ,one day we had an egg quiche which was ok and I will say the french toast was good.(small but good) . There was no other fruit, muffins, cerceal, yogurt etc . Mary and Jim were pleasant when you saw them. Both nights we never came across then at all . The most disapointing thing about this Inn is that there are no amendies. No cookies in a jar, late night coffee (there was hot water for tea an coco) no afternoon cordials no complimentary glasses of wine and cheese. No snacks except pop corn.( Good thing we stopped and picked up some things during the day.) Yes the Inn is close to other towns and the casinos and the Cafe Routiers restaurant but there are other Inns near by that offer more for less . Check them out before you go here and compare .Take if from someone who stays out B & B 's a lot.

My boyfriend & I visited in mid-October which is a lovely time of year in CT. Very nice B&B with lovely hosts.....breakfast was wonderful (in a beautiful room :) and the rooms were clean, comfortable & well appointed. Will definitely make a return visit when contemplating a quick weekend getaway.

Room Tip: Stayed in the "Nutmegger" toward the back of the house ~ nice room ~ but all seemed equall...

The Inn is very comfortable, with a gorgeous porch and a living room full of games, including a pool table. It's minutes away from Essex and Old Saybrook, with the excellent Cafe Routiers less than a mike away. The area has good biking, kayaking, beaches and scenery, but is less than 90 minutes from NYC,

We stayed at the Capt Stannard House over the 2012 Memorial day week end. The room was fresh and clean with fresh baked/warm cookies there upon our arrival. Jim and Mary were wonderful as they provided plently of insight to the house and surrounding area as well as space to enjoy the openness of their wonderful home. The back porch is awesome with their resident robin flying in to entertain as we shared a bottle of wine relaxing.. Breakfast was a treat w/ all the attention to detail you could want. I would recommend this as a must stay to those that enjoy a warm and spacious setting w/ just the right touch of kindness.

Room Tip: They all have their own charm so no bad choices.

My daughter's Wedding Reception was recently held in Westbrook Ct. We rented the Stannard Inn for our Rehearsal Dinner and also to have our Wedding party and family stay for two nights. Our experience was incredible! The owners, Jim and Mary Brewster are wonderful people. They assisted us in every possible way, and made us feel like we were at home during our entire stay. The Inn is immaculate! Every room is neat and clean and decorated beautifully. Jim and Mary serve the most delicious breakfast that any of our guests have ever tasted!! We wanted the whole experience of my daughter's Wedding to be beautiful. Our stay at the Stannard Inn, coupled with the genuine kindness that we received from Jim and Mary, made it perfect. We would all highly recommend the Stannard Inn for any event or simply as a special place to stay.

Room Tip: We found all of the rooms to be very nice.

We stayed this weekend at the Capt Stannard House with my son and daughter in law and couldn"t be more pleased. From the warm greetings from Mary and Jim (the owners) and seeing this lovely home that they take so much pride in, we knew it was the right choice. The beach is a block away and the Inn supplies you with towels,chairs and bottled water for you convenience..Now to the food!! The homemade brownie bites in your room were to die for,, but it was hard to eat just one!!! The breakfast was spectacular.and much more elegeant then your average B & B and so much better. Thanks so much Mary and Jim for being so accommodating and giving us a wonderful family getaway.Jayne & Bernie

Room Tip: check out the website. Some have eves so if you are tall ask for rooms with flat ceilings

My whole family, 5 daughters, spouses and some family friends, all stayed at the Captain Stannard Bed and Breakfast over the President's Day long weekend. We were celebrating our oldest Daughter's 40th birthday and Jim and Mary were the most pleasant and accomodating Innkeepers we have ever met! My husband and I have stayed at many B&B's over the years but,I have to say, that they made sure our experience at their B&B the most relaxing ever! We not only took up most of the rooms, but we had a caterer come in one night for a formal, sit down dinner. Jim and Mary made sure it went without a hitch. Mary's happy face and attitude made us feel completely at home and Jim regaled us at breakfast one morning (at our request) with stories of the Inn. We plan to return next year for a family reunion
