After numerous wonderful visits with Ted and Carol at their Captain Gran'ts 1754 Inn it seemed an appropriate time to share our opinions. From the moment we enter the quaint village of Poquetanuck and head up the driveway and overlook the stonewalls and fields we just start to relax. It feels like coming home.
The warmth of our hosts and the lovely setting aside, the Inn itself is a beautifully cared for historic home. The common rooms (almost the whole first floor!) and bedrooms are all tastefully decorated with antiques and Carol seems to be constantly adding to her collection. It is a great starting point to head out antique shopping in Montville, Old Lyme, Stonington or Mystic and centrally located if you want to head to the impressive flea market in Jewett City.
How pleasant to come in at night after a show at Mohegan Sun and be able to sit in the living room and have a complimentary glass of wine (my husband heads stright for the homemade cake and cookies left for guests on the dining room table) and stroke Molly the cat while we discuss the evenings events and check our emails. In the morning we are treated with outdoor dining if weather permits and some very original and delicious breakfasts prepared by Carol. Fresh herbs right from the garden in the eggs and home made jams and jellies plus rhubarb and strawberry compote on the French toast are just a few of the treats in store for guests. Ted keeps the wonderful coffee coming and is always ready to serve mimosa's if someone is having a celebration!
Having stayed in many Bed and Breakfasts over the years (and several in the area) this is our favorite by a mile! We hope to come back many more times.
