“Breakfast with a smile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2013

My family and I had the pleasure of enjoying a fantastic breakfast at the Captain Stannard House. We were graciously greeted by Jim who had a beautiful table awaiting our arrival. The food was wonderful and the staff was extremely accommodating to our children. We were also impressed with the history of this beautiful inn. If you are visiting from afar or live nearby, this a perfect venue for a business or family retreat, meeting, or just leisurely shoreline travel.

I have attended several networking events at the Captain Stannard House and the hospitality is amazing!!

We were given a tour by "Mary" and she really made me feel at home. This is not your average hotel. This is truly exceptional. Everything is very detailed and the service is very personable.

If your ready to go on vacation or your looking for a place to host an event, make sure you ask for "Mary" she's a wonderful!

Spending a couple of days at Captain Stannard's recently was a treat and we felt just at home. Mary and Jim are wonderful hosts and treated us just as family. The house is beautiful, maintained superbly and located a few steps away from the beach. As for breakfast, let's not even start! Will definitely come back.

Jim and Mary were very welcoming as were their daughter and her husband. The breakfasts were delicious and plentiful. Our room had a bathroom "down the hall" which was a surprise, not what I would call a private bath, as described on the web, although we were the only people using it. Still, we didn't feel that we could leave things there since other guests could look in. The décor was tired and uneven (many little things were left undone, e.g., dusty screens, shower curtain had seen better days, exterior areas that hadn't been cleaned for the season) and the internet wasn't working after the first night. Charging $1 for popcorn seems a bit much; besides who wants to smell it if someone does decide to make it. The street outside is fairly noisy and heavily traveled during the day and evening.

Jim and Mary were caring, considerate hosts. They clearly love what they do and see to every detail meticulously. The home is brimming with history and is beautifully furnished and decorated. We had a great nights sleep in a cozy sleigh bed. The beach is very close. We would definitely return.

Have had 2 fun crafting weekends with friends at the Captain Stannard House. Mary & Jim are friendly, hospitable and accommodating hosts. The Inn is comfortable, clean and homey. The food is always excellent. I loved my room and bed and the public spaces are just as inviting.

It is always a delight to stay with Mary and Jim at the Captain Stannard House. My family and I have been staying with them for many years, and we are always pleased with their services.

Mary and Jim are extremely hospitable people and at times it even feels like we are staying in a "home away from home." The house is beautiful and each room shows character and charm. It is like no other B & B I have stayed at with exceptional decorating and classy approaches in style of furniture.

The ambiance is quite lovely and very peaceful. Downstairs there are two open rooms with a tv, pool table, unlimited beverages and a microwave. There is even a fireplace to add an even more "charming" feature to the home.

Breakfast is always lovely served with juice, coffee, and a main course. Jim and Mary are great cooks, I've never had a bad breakfast with them. They put time into what they do, making everything extremely fresh for their guests.

Down the street there is a beach which is within walking distance. At night during the summer it’s nice to sit on their breathtaking porch and read a book after taking a walk to the beach. Getting in and out of the house is also convenient as there is a security code to get in.

I would highly recommend the Captain Stannard House to anyone. Jim and Mary don't look as you as just customers, but as regular people. They truly are warm hearted people who care about making you have the best possible experience in their home.
