I don't usually write reviews but was checking back to book The Captains House again for next summer and saw a review calling this B&B disappointing. My experience was great! The sun porch furniture was NOT in disrepair. It is not new but perfectly adequate. My bed in room 3 was very comfortable. I loved the continental breakfast with the... More

Although the setting has an amazing view the amenities are limited. For the cost we expected a bit more. We stayed in room 1. The best view in the house! The sunroom faces Thatcher Island and sunrise was amazing! At night the moon was a spectacular site! As I said the charm of the place was a missing amenity. We... More

Captain's House is a fantastic B&B in Rockport. Our first visit to the area and with our great experience, we'll be back. The Captain's House is comfortable and Gretchen is a very pleasant host. The views are phenomenal, as you are feet from the Ocean. Would recommend Room #1, with extra sunroom facing the Ocean. Sunrise is at 4:30am in... More

This was our first experience in a B&B where we stayed for two nights. This historical home is beautifully furnished and met all our needs. Our room was very comfy and we had a great view of the ocean and Thatchers Island with the twin lighthouses! When we arrived we were greeted by Trish who showed us around and offered... More

We stayed at this Inn from Sept 15-18th and found the views and location of this inn just fantastic, the breakfast was very good and was all we needed, this was the first time that we stayed at a B&B and the owners didn't find the time to introduce themselves to us and make you feel at home, we have...

We have been staying at Captain's House for many years now, and it never fails to delight. Gorgeous views with three lighthouses, lobster buoys, marvelous sunsets, and sounds that are guaranteed to make you forgot the ratrace back home. Freshly made breads and sweet rolls, fresh fruit, and varied goodies and very good coffee every morning. As we were deciding... More

My husband and I had a great stay at the Captain's House. The picture shown on this site is not current - the house is a bit more run down on the outside than this shows but it is still a beautiful house in an amazing location. We were in room #3. I was surprised by the fact that this... More

I think 2berried wrote a spot-on review in September 2013. I was thinking about giving Captain's House 3 or 4 stars but finally went for 4. We loved the location of the B&B. We stayed in room 1 and heard the ocean all night long as well as watched the sunset from our porch area. The sun porch will need... More

To all the read reviews! It does not get much better then the Captians House! When you walk in you actually feel like you own the place! The staff is very careful about making you feel that way! Each of the 5 bedrooms lend their own character! The sound of the ocean waves will be with you no matter what... More

Unfortunately, we only had time to stay one night here. We had just finished a swing through Vermont and New Hampshire and were headed back for one last night in Boston. Rockport is approx 40 miles from Boston but it seems a world away. This stay was quiet and relaxing. You have several options regarding where you can sit to... More
