The best Halloween B&B experience ever! I love that Carol & Ted, the owners of the Inn are so attentive to their guests needs. Their staff is great, too! There are a lot of unexpected surprises i.e. delish homemade baked goods and the crystal decanter of sherry in my room. I love their seasonal decorations. Though the Inn is haunted, I have stayed there twice and found it very welcoming. What also made my stay exceptional were the other guests who are now friends. We shared something extraordinary. If you are a fan of history or unique B&Bs treat yourself to a night at Captain Grants Inn. If you are drawn to the paranormal you may end up with an adventure into the supernatural and a great story. The Inn was featured in the new Netflix series 28 Days Haunted. My two experiences with the Inn were different. In August 2020, I was drawn there by a young, funny spirit from the late 1700s named Liam to find a coin he lost. On my return this year his spirit seems to have moved on. I am hoping to keep his memory alive by creating a display with his story and coin. He really wanted to be remembered and let it be known he did not steal the coin. I am so happy that I spent my Halloween weekend at Captain Grants Inn. I look forward to my next adventure there. I have to mention sitting around the fire pit sipping a mug of hot spiced, spiked apple cider, nibbling a caramel witch cupcake and telling ghost stories was the epitome of an adult New England Halloween experience.

READ THIS BEFORE EVEN THINKING OF GOING TO THIS PLACE!! When we arrived no one was there to check us in. We also had a huge problem as something we had arranged with the owner Carol was way out of whack. They have no phone # listed to call & I remembered reading somewhre she lived next door in the Avery House. So wife & I went next door, no one answered, so around back we found a staircase to the 2 story deck. We knocked on the door and her husband Ted answers the wreaking of booze. We asked him why the arrangements we had made with Carol and had email confirmation was wrong. He had no answer, we asked for a refund and said we would drive home 2 hours disappointed but not mad. He walked away & then Carol comes storming up to the door drunker than Ted refusing to refund us, telling us lie after lie when we had proof in an email of the arrangement. We repeatedly gave her an opportunity to make things right with a refund & she repeatedly told us no, deal with it. Not one apology, just slurring of words and lies. So we went next door to the Inn. The following is the truth, the whole Inn smelled like a barn & had moths flying all over the inside. I have video proof of the moths. After a few hours we decided to just drive home & not stay the night. The next day I messaged Carol asking for at least half my money back & told her most business owners at least care about good reviews if not good customer service. She told me that I was committing extortion & had stolen a bunch of things in an effort to scare. Well I don't steal & don't want anything but an apology. Now we are out $187 & Carol could care less.

Unfortunately we were ushered to a smaller building on the property that sits directly on a main thoroughfare between the two casinos. Traffic was non-stop and extremely noisy and disruptive of any relaxing getaway we might have enjoyed. We were misled by the owners into believing that the room would have been part of the main house, as nowhere on the website does it indicate that there is another building with rooms. Beer? Only Bud Light. Wine? In boxes. Roku TV, bring your own batteries. White noise machine they give you to drown out the traffic that is blowing right by your room, didn’t have a volume high enough. And you really need to have a propensity for the odor of musty.

Absolutely loved my stay at Captain Grants Inn! Ted and Carol were wonderful! I enjoyed hearing about how they met and about the ghosts of the Inn. I connected to several ghosts while their and even got to give a reading to a few people while there. I am a medium. The room was fabulous, breakfast was wonderful, and the Inn is warm and friendly, as are the spirits who dwell there. I highly recommend the Inn and will most definitely visit again!

To say I am disappointed by the owners of this inn would be a gross understatement. The owners are salespeople in the worst possible way - they over-promise, absurdly underdeliver, and are, plain and simple, greedy. I was the maid of honor and de facto wedding planner for a wedding held at the inn on Saturday, September 25. When we first visited on March 6 we had a tour of the grounds with Carol and Ted, discussed our vision for the wedding reception, our expectations for the number of people attending, and how we expected the weekend to go. We booked the inn for 2 rooms on the night of September 23 and all 7 available rooms as well as the Stagecoach Inn down the road - essentially renting out the entire property - for the nights of the 24th and 25th. Between March 6 and May 22, I was in contact with Carol going over logistics and having questions answered multiple times. On May 22 I sent an email asking if we could rent the additional 3 rooms in the main house - so renting out the entire main house - on Thursday, September 23. Carol confirmed that those rooms were available and that we could rent them, which we did. Without getting too in the weeds there were some additional red flags through the summer but, because of all the planning we had done up to that point, we didn't feel that we were able to change venues. We were hoping against hope that our fears would not be confirmed and that everything would go smoothly. Personally, between phone calls, emails, and in-person meetings I had spoken to Carol about the logistics of our event at least 12 separate times. We arrived on Thursday of wedding weekend to find that the owners had overbooked the inn and parts of our wedding party had to be displaced. This was AFTER confirming with Carol, again, that we had reserved all 5 rooms IN THE MAIN HOUSE for Thursday night. Ted not only refused to look at any of the emails or documentation that I had confirming our reservations he moved forward with checking the other guests in and then never came back to address the issue. When the issue was brought up to him he was incredibly rude and unprofessional stating that it didn't matter the conversations I had with Carol because I hadn't had any with him. What?!? We dealt with 6 different vendors to make this wedding weekend a reality and all were amazing - except Carol and Ted. They have the sweetest staff of ladies who are lovely and so kind and Carol and Ted are incredibly degrading and rude to them and it is painful to witness. Carol and Ted put on a great salesperson facade but it is all fake. They are greedy, mean people. To anyone considering having an event here, please do not. What you will be promised is not what you will receive and you will end up spending thousands of dollars to be spoken down to, made to feel like a burden, and outright lied to. It will not matter if you have email proof - as I did, it will not matter if you had actual phone conversations - as I did, nor will it matter if you had in-person conversations - as I did! Rather than billing this as a haunted inn, they should bill it as an inn in an alternate reality because when you walk through the doors for your event the only thing that will be real to the owners is what they have decided is real.

I am generally not inclined to leave reviews of places and generally reward great service with repeated business and spreading information on a good experience by word of mouth. I literally just returned from a 3-1/2 day stay for a wedding at Captain Grant's 1754--and I want to warn potential customers and especially wedding parties and the like to STAY AWAY. My reasons are outlined below: 1. Ted and Carol have at best unprofessional and at worst deceptive business practices. After multiple instances of confirming in both email and via phone that our wedding party booked ALL 5 rooms in the main inn we arrived only to find that TWO additional couples had been booked for the same day our wedding party arrived. This was brought to Ted's attention and rather than confirming what was agreed with Carol---he brushed us off and said we were dealing with him now??! 2. It took a year to plan for the wedding and over time it became apparent that neither Ted or Carol have any problem having you come crash someone else's wedding to inspect the inn for your event or double book others AFTER you have already made reservations with them and paid well in excess of what another customer could later pay for a room you already reserved for a large wedding party. This is simply greed and lack of integrity! 3. On the surface Ted appears to be cordial and nice, but he is very rude to his hotel staff and talks down at the women who work for them. I witnessed this several times and spoke with hotel staff about it. A lady admitted to crying virtually everyday she comes to work. Ted is an understated jerk. The ladies who work here are THE REASON for all that is good about it. It ends with them. 4. These folks do not take notes and cared nothing for the details of the rental items that were being delivered to the inn for the wedding. We explicitly stated that the rental company would deliver extra tables, chairs, dishes, coolers, etc. for the wedding and would return to pick them up the Monday following the Saturday wedding. Carol agreed to this. They then expected us to take all the items delivered with us as we checked out Sunday morning! Our party was up at 7 AM that Sunday morning and we cleaned up, packed up, and neatly staged all the rental items out of the way where the rental company would return to pick them up. This was not good enough and Carol insisted we move everything to the Inn basement as they had "other guests arriving". On top of the thousands of dollars that were paid to book the inn we paid another $500 as an "event fee"....for apparently nothing. We literally set up everything for the cocktail hour and reception, had a chef and catering team do all the cooking and serving, and we tore everything down and cleaned up such that one would not have known a wedding party was hosted there. Needless to say we refused to move the rental items to the basement of the Inn! 5. While I recognize my personal dislike for B&Bs this one sealed my feeling on the matter of historic type B&Bs. I could not get to sleep because of the never ending creaking of the wood floors from other patrons moving in their beds in their own rooms. If that is the "Haunted" feeling folks want to come here for....that is fine. We needed sleep and rest to host a wedding and got very little of either. Water pressure is low and i could barely lift a towel from any of the handles without it falling apart. Lots of things need lots of work at this place. Never again 6. There are good reviews of this Inn and the owners here on online, and I cannot dispute the experience of others. I can only offer our experience and I am unequivocally warning all who would consider this inn for an event (wedding, birthdays, etc.) to look elsewhere. My verdict on this place is: the proprietors are unprofessional, greedy, RUDE, and dishonest. Did I say RUDE already?? I will say it again: they are RUDE. 7. If any of the ladies that work at Captain Grant's 1754 ever read this---please know that we appreciated all of you and you are the reason for all the good food and hospitality anyone feels about this place. I am sorry you work for such terrible owners who appear as something they are not. God bless you all!

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.
