My boyfriend and I decided to spend 3 nights at Captain Grants to get away from the city. Ted was there to greet us and offered to help with our luggage. He showed us to our room (the Adelaide room). He even recommened some of his favorite restaraunts in the area and gave us tickets for a free dessert or a glass of wine at another restaraunt. He gave us a map of the area and also let us know that we could help ourselves to the delicious cake and cookies, or beverages in the fridge which was wine, beer, and soda. The first night we stayed we had the whole house to ourselves (Ted and Carol live in a different house off to the side which was cool because it gave us even more privacy). Breakfast was quite the event and consisted of many different dishes. Since I am allergic to cheese, Ted amd Carol made sure that I had my own seperate dish. All three mornings they cooked a completely different breakfast and it was amazing each time...especially the homemade jams! We met some wonderful people at breakfast to. The fire Ted made each morning was a nice touch and made it very cozy. There is an old creepy cemetery in the back of the house which was cool to check out if you are into that kind of thing. If you want an awesome dinner, you should go to Bravo Bravo which is in Mystic. My boyfriend and I love to eat out and are critics and this place was amazing. Its a bit pricey but definitely worth it!!! There is also a really cool pizza place in Mystic called Pizzetta which is also very good. We may have had a run in with Lady Adelaide in our room late one night. All of a sudden we heard the sound of the shower curtain violently opening. It was SO loud and we rushed to the bathroom to see the shower curtain wide open. We both looked at eachother and laughed because we thought it was such an odd thing to occur. You'd expect footsteps or something in a haunted room....not the shower curtain flinging open lol. It was very odd. All in all it was a very relaxing and enjoyable stay. I would love to go back and try out a different room. The breakfast was definitely one of the highlights!!!!
