I just got back from my trip to this inn. It was wonderful. My friend was dealing with the one year anniversary of his accident and this visit really helped to distract him. While falling asleep, another guest knocked on our door and asked if we were ghost hunting. I said we weren't planning to but then my friend and I went downstairs and began taking some polaroids and soon joined the other couple in exploring the inn and the cemetery on the property. We did go at night but Ted, one of the owners, recommends the day time to avoid wild animals. Carol put out chocolate cake and free beer, soda, etc was provided. The breakfast the next day was wonderful. We got the Collette room which had a twin bed and a queen. There are journals in the rooms detailing previous guest's stays that are worth a read. They also provided sherry which, while we didn't partake, the other folks staying there enjoyed. I would love to stay here again in future. I do recommend bug spray if traveling out to the cemetery. Carol has a book she sells to anyone interested and also signed it for my friend, which really made him happy. Even if you aren't interested in the paranormal, it is still worth a visit. Ted recommended we go to Mystic for dinner or one of the casinos. We went to Mystic and visited a beach and then went for our meal. We wanted to explore the town but our plans didn't let us but I hope to do that at a later date. Please give them business, they are so wonderful! :)…
We booked this trip to get away after spending one heck of a year in pandemic mode. The hosts were wonderful. Ted greeted us after we drove up and showed us around the inn himself. He was kind and conscientious, asking questions about our needs and letting us know he was available to help. The home is spotless and beautifully maintained. Decor is period and absolutely wonderful. Our accommodations were excellent. The breakfasts were outstanding and Carol and Ted ate with us. It was as if we were sitting with a favorite relative. They were awesome and the experience was beyond belief. So glad I came. The area is beautiful and it made it even more special to come home and rest and relax after a day out in this slice of Heaven.
We went to Captain Grant's 1754 a few days ago. We were looking for a B&B to stay for the night and were so glad we chose this one. We had no idea, until shortly after we arrived, the amazing history of this place. The innkeepers, Ted and Carol, were so warm and inviting. They worked very hard to make sure we had a nice time. Our stay was very quiet and relaxing and we loved to be in that historic home (especially with its paranormal history). They answered any and all questions that we had. Breakfast in the morning was delicious. Our room was very clean, quiet, comfy, and warm with the wonderful fireplace! We were also able to browse the grounds the next day. We cannot wait to return and were so glad we came.
Upon arrival we were greeted by Ted. He offered to carry our bags. Ted and Carol are very gracious hosts. Breakfasts were fantastic. The Captain's Marie room was terrific. Enjoyed our time with the other guests. Outstanding game room! Decor was unimaginable. Service by John and Laurie was great. Returning in October!
Pros: owners and staff friendly and not overbearing, good location when visiting mystic or casinos as its a sort drive to all. breakfast decent, house has nice grounds and central space, plus game room. Cool and novel with its haunted history. Sherry and previous guest books in rooms is nice touch. Cons: too many.. rooms are far from clean and comfy. If you don't like bugs, stay elsewhere. Spiderwebs (many, Many! old ones in the lovely wood beams as well along walls n corners makes it clear they do not thoroughly clean often at all). Not to mention the several live spiders (at least 5) in the bathroom alone. The room was very dark which made me leery of what else I prob wasn't seeing. Look, I live surounded by woods, I'm used to all kinds of creepy crawlies but I wanted a relaxing break from them! A historic BnB shouldn't feel like camping. A lake would've been more refreshing to since the shower pressure was a trickle which made the slowest tub drain ever even worse. By the end of one shower the tub was half filled. Yuck! It took over half an hour to drain and I had to manually rinse the soap 5x to clean it so my partner could take one! we didn't read reviews extensively prior to staying (we had power outages and chose this for its decent rating) but of course became curious during our stay. apparently this is not the first review of clogged tubs! We didn't even bother showering the morning we left. Bit wait, there's more...as a frequent traveler I Always check mattress n sheets. Well, the good news I didn't find bed bugs...bad news, just dead bugs. And sheets and mattress cover had stains. Upon request,, sheets were changed, cover was not. We could tell because of the stains! And like another reviewer wrote, owners hold a friendly card game every Saturday. Didnt affect us but it could be loud for some rooms or those looking for a quieter quaint stay. Overall, just a shame with such great potential if only there was more detailed attention. After all, the bed and bath are pretty much the key things you want clean and working right??…
