On the edge of the bird sanctuary our room looked straight out over it. The decoration was creative, our bed-frame was a boat trailer. There were lots of small details that made it special. There was a gas-log fire and also a proper heater. The shower was great and could take two persons at a time. The breakfast was superb.... More

We stayed at the Captain's Inn in July and had a wonderful weekend enjoying our comfortable room, the beautiful location, and the hospitality offered by the Innkeeper. The breakfasts were outstanding. I highly recommend the Captain's Inn for a great getaway in a unique location.

This lovely inn was perfect for our mini get away. I told my husband I wanted to have our anniversary dinner at the Whole Enchilada and surprised him with a night's stay at the Captain's Inn. We had huge windows facing the Bay and wetlands with an incredible sundown. It's a wonderful place to relax and peacefully unwind!

Captain's Inn has an interesting design like beds in boat and it utilize nicely other similiar themes. A problem with beds was that it was too high. There was an electric fireplace in the room. Surrounding is rather modest, but from the window you can do birdwatching. Breakfast didn't have many options.

We are sorry the bed was too high, some rooms have lower beds depending on the theme of the room. Our breakfast is cooked by the innkeeper, and she cooks things that other guests have really enjoyed and some that return actually request to have again.

If you are looking for a romantic and cozy getaway, we are the place. In the evening, you can capture the beautiful sunsets from your room in the Boathouse or on one of the 2 decks. The waterfront view is breathtaking. There is always an amazing array of wildlife including sea otters, birds, harbor seals and wild turkeys nearby. You can take a brisk walk on the local sandy beach or take a relaxing stroll through our little community. Almost everything in our community is within a short walking distance.
