My husband and I decided to stay at The Captain's House Inn for Labor Day weekend in 2012 (Sat-Wed). We were there to celebrate our 10th year anniversary and we are so happy this is the place we chose. The inn is located on Cape Cod in the town of Chatam which is not far to down town Chatam and the local beach. The grounds were immaculate. Beautiful gardens and heated swimming spool. We selected the Northern Lights Room which came with a huge, comfy king size bed. The room is decorated perfectly and has a sweet little fire place and outdoor patio to relax by. The room was spacious and the light instrumental music they play is so soothing that we left it on all through the night. Each day they ensured our refrigerator was stocked with bottles of water and Nantucket Cranberry juice. The snack basket was also re-stocked daily with Cape Cod kettle cooked potatoe chips and Kashi granola bars. My favorite was the Lindtt mint chocolates that they left for you each morning when they cleaned and replensished your room and at night during turn down serivice. The room has every amentity including a coffee pot which we never used because coffee, tea and juice is brought every morning at the time you choose. Tea time is from 3:00-5:00pm. They offered a lot of different cakes, cookies, pies teas, coffee, etc. Then they put out an evening snack at night from 6:00-10:00 which also offers an array of goodies, drinks and hot chocolate. The library is completley stocked with updated DVD movies which you can take back to your room and enjoy (yes there is a TV). Let's not forget to mention the complimentary Port and whiskey offered in the library as well. Breakfast was always gormet. Perfectly plated meals that were delicious and filling. Besides your main course they offer a continental breakfast with bagels, toast, pastries, fruit, yogurt, cereal, granola etc. They start you off with their "Fruit Starter" of the day and they bring you cute little individual pots of coffee or tea. Absolutley a wonderful way to start the day. So now let me talk about the staff. First off I must mention that the inn keepers Jill and James were not there for the first part of our trip. They were on a family vacation and rightfully so (all families need these times). Thankfully their staff is absolutley amazing. Everything was seamless. Everyone from the maids, chiefs, and groundskeepers were helpful and kind. In fact we did not even realize the inn keepers were not there until two days later. How did we realize it? We found a greeting card in our room one night that was hand written and it was apologizing that they (Jill and James the inn keepers) were away, but that they couldn't wait to meet us upon their return. Talk about a perfect touch. As promised we were greeted by a Jill on Tuesday morning. It just so happened that it was the day of our anniversary and we needed help with our plans to visit Martha's Vineyard. Jill told us exactly where to go what to do and took it upon herself to book our anniversary dinner at The Captain Linnell House in Orleans. She got the timing just right and the place was stunning! The food was amazing and the waitress brought me flowers for our anniversary. When we got back to our room that night Jill had sent chocolate covered strawberries with another card wishing us a Happy Anniversary. Such a simple touch but it meant the world to us. I can't say enough about The Captain's House Inn, it's wonderful staff, and it's thoughtful owners. They truly leave no stone unturned. Thank you for making our 10 year a memorable one. We will definatley be back in years to come. For those of you looking for the perfect B&B, than look no furthur, this is the real deal. It was worth every penny!!!
The Northern Lights room is stunning, spacious, and perfect for a romantic getaway.
