My wife and I were attending a wedding in Madison, CT last weekend and rather than stay in New Haven or another nearby city we searched for B&B's in the area and were delighted to find the Captain Stannard house. It would be hard to imagine accommodations that would provide a better B&B experience than what we had here anywhere.... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2015 via mobile

This traditional-style B&B was a delight from start to finish. We were arriving late after driving from New York but found hot drinks and homemade cookies waiting for us. We had asked for vegetarian breakfast options and they were delicious and substantial on both the days we were there - omelette one day and french toast the next - with... More

We found the house well equipped with plenty of extra space for guests - TV area - Games area- plenty of games in the cupboard - Pool table. Coffee and tea also drinks available. Fridge available for guests. The rooms were comfortable -... More

I was brought up on the Connecticut shoreline in a little town called Clinton, CT so I have been familiar with the Captain Stannard House for many, many years. When it came time for my 50th high school reunion, I decided to stay there to save having to drive back and forth to my home in northern CT each night.... More

After a long week we were looking for someplace to unwind, and this inn could not have been better. Easy to get to and find, just far enough of I95 to be nice and quiet, impeccably maintained and clean, great home-made breakfast, and plenty of waterfront spots for lunch and dinner in the immediate area. Essex, Lyme, Mystic all within... More

We stayed here for 3 days while visiting friends in Westbrook. I loved the French toast, the large porch and yard (where we spend one morning playing our guitars and singing) the easy walk to the beach, and the friendly owners. There is always cold water, tea, rooms and bath were clean and very nicely decorated. The downstairs was large... More

Small B&B about 10 rooms. Very clean room with adequate linens etc. Public rooms large and well stocked with games. Breakfast very nice. The owners are friendly. Outdoor porch and nice yard with a number of lawn games available. Only problem with room was the sunlight streaming in at 5AM, no drapes or room darkeners.

My girlfriend and I stayed there earlier this year. Mary and Jim greeted us like we were family. The INN is quaint, clean and comfortable. The food was delicious and Mary and Jim's are quite the hosts. We are going back again!
