We were slightly disappointed with Captain's Watch, but in all fairness, our hosts were very nice. I will list what we thought the pros and cons were, and not comment much on the area as we find that when reading reviews of hotels and B & Bs, we want to know about the accommodations and not necessarily where people ate....

Thanks for your review for reading it is one way I can strive to improve our service to guests. I was of course deeply saddened that we were unable to meet your expectations for a B&B experience. Unfortunately your stay was brief (only one night on the way to a further destination). With limited direct communication about any of your...

Hello every one. It's been a few day since we got back from Maine & I thought I would start with my reviews. Our first night was in Harpswell. We stayed at the Captains Watch Bed & Breakfast. The drive up from Portland International Jet Port was under a Hour. Once we landed , picked up the rental Car and...

The proprietors of this serene little B&B are absolutely fantastic. If you've never been to the area and you decide you want to "go it alone", you'll be missing out on Ken and Donna's sincere and detailed insight. Their sense of accommodation was beyond parental. The food and coffee is fantastic and perfectly portioned, the environment is void of awkwardness...

The Hosts - Donna & Ken - do EVERYTHING they can to make your stay enjoyable. Besides the absolutely delicious breakfasts Donna prepares - Ken would just love to take you on a 3 hr sail on his own sailboat. They are the first source for local info - on such items as where to eat and not to eat...

Lovely place, where Donna and Ken bend over backwards to be helpful and considerate. From freshly prepared traditional iced tea to making things easy for one of us with limited mobility, we couldn't ask for more. The view over Cundy's Harbour with the moored lobster boats is beautiful.

As all the glowing reviews attest, this place is just the best you could wish for. We were looking for a few days of quiet rest and casual touring/eating and the CW couldn't have been more perfect. Donna & Ken have obviously been at this a long time and know exactly how to treat their guests. The first thing you...

Our family (two daughters, son-in-law and 5-mo.-old granddaughter) went to celebrate a graduation. Nice accomodations: each room had its own bath and the beds were very comfortable. Two of the rooms had a great view of the harbor, and there was a great view from the cupola. Donna was very hospitable with great suggestions and makes delicious blueberry pancakes :)....

Perfect for a Maine get-away. You are away from the crowds of Brunswick, Portland, and Kennebunk but close enough to visit any time you want. The Maine coast "fingers" are beautiful and easy to get to, and Donna is full of information and ideas about what do to to take in this beautiful spot. The beds are comfortable, the rooms...

“we were in the CUPOLA EAST which had a great view from 2 windows and even better from the cupola. The Slate Room looked inviting as well.”

“The Demi suite is the largest room and also has a sleeper sofa. The other front bedroom is smaller but has a great harbor view. The third bedroom has a partial view of the harbor.”

“Choose a room with access to the cupola, if you can. I think two of the rooms have this. It is tops for romance! The Captain's Quarters was romantic, very spacious and had comfy extra seating.”
