We visited the cape for Labor Day 2013, for a wedding. We decided to explore beyond the recommended hotel list and we stumbled upon The Captain's Quarters. I did my research and decided that this would be the spot. We couldn't have been more pleased with our decision.
Ed and Susan, the proprietors of the 1850's built home, were amazing. They were personable, helpful, very friendly without being overly controlling and in your hair. Ed and Susan live in the coach house relieving us of the concern of waking them up should we come home late. Ed made great recommendations on where to visit (and where to avoid) on the cape which allowed us to make the most of our time there. One tip - you'll need your own shampoo and conditioner.
Our room was big, had an en suite bath and just the right amenities we needed for a comfortable and relaxing stay (hair dryer, iron, ironing board, wifi, cable). Each suite has it's own key, giving us added security for out belongings. The home has 4 or 5 individual suites, each decorated in quaint and cozy decor. Each morning Ed and Susan prepare a variety of breakfast items and then will make up your room as you are out enjoying the day. The house is situated just blocks from the heart of Harwich Port. Everywhere we wanted to go within Harwich was a short walk away.
By the end of our 4 night stay, we were sad to leave not only the charm of the house but the hospitality of Ed and Susan. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a quiet place to lay their head but also anyone looking to meet some great people who take real pride in running their B&B (ask them about the history of the house...it's pretty cool).
Thanks Ed and Susan for a memorable weekend.
