We stayed for two nights and found the Captains Inn adorably quaint. The staff were very helpful when we booked via e-mail, they also booked our whale watching cruise for us. Very helpful and informative when we arrived. Our room was really nice with amazing views overlooking the wetlands, it was great watching the sea otters, seals and variety of... More

My stay at Captain's Inn was very enjoyable. My SO and I only stayed for a night, but it was exactly what we needed. Check-in was pretty seamless, it was a quick tour of the place and our room. Our room had cookies as a welcome, which was a nice touch. Our room was smaller, but we didn't need much.... More

We had a very nice room with a great view of a little inlet where birds,seals and otters could be seen playing. There was some remodeling being done outside, so I am sure it will be even better in the future. Very nice staff and a big breakfast each morning. Great place for a couple to get away.

Checked in by a gentleman I assume to be the owner. He said he wanted guests to feel like family, then reeled off a list of do's and don'ts. Never saw him again.

This inn is very quiet; views of lagoon stretch of waterway. We could NOT hear the ocean even though it was a day with big waves. Staff super friendly. Breakfast 8:30-9:30. Our bed was on a boat trailer; so VERY high. Shore bird sightings galore; great white egret etc.

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.
