Wonderful B&B! I made arrangement there to have a small business luncheon meeting for 8 people. The owners were so gracious! Lunch was superb and the accomadations of the restaurant had a lovely New England feel. My meeting went so well that I have now booked a future seminar renting out the entire restaurant space! They also have a beautiful porch and backyard perfect for cocktail or luncheon events. It's a warm B&B and is perfect for that different venue and great New England feel!

We wanted a quiet and romantic getaway, while being close to the beach. This is just what we got, and a lot more. Jim, Mary and Helen are all warm and welcoming hosts and they provided that little extra that made our weekend even more memorable; warm cider, fresh cookies, cold drinks etc. Our room (no 8) was very nice with a lot of natural light.

We were driving by after having canceled our reservations at another place.
It is set back off the main road. We drove in the gravel driveway between two stone pillars. A large white colonial home, where the innkeepers Mary & Jim live on the precises. They were very welcoming and the main entry room is very charming.
The breakfasts every morning were well worth getting up for. The rooms were very clean & decorated quite lovingly. The bathrooms were well appointed with large soft towels and all the amenities. Every afternoon around 4pm there were beverages and homemade snacks.
They are located one block from the beach on Long Island Sound.
A lovely walk for us every morning after the delightful breakfast.
What a lovely way to start your day!
Every room in the entire Inn is comfortable & inviting.
The sheets on the beds are wonderful. We had a marvelous time thanks to Mary & Jim.

What a wonderful first time trip to New England and a B&B. Jim and Mary were gracious hosts and a wealth of information for local restaurants and sights. The brownies and coffee were to die for.

We stayed two nights at the Captain Stannard House. The hospitality there was amazing. What a surprise to find fresh-baked brownies and cookies waiting for us in our room. The two-course breakfasts were decadent, and the rooms and inn were gorgeous. We had fun working on (and completing) the ongoing jigsaw puzzle. The innkeepers were very helpful but also allowed us our privacy. We highly recommend this inn!

We just came back from a 3 day 'romantic getway' and we loved everything about this B&B. The inn is very charming and clean and the best of all was the service... we felt as if we were staying in a 5 star hotel. Jim, Mary and Helen took care of every little detail and made reservations on our behalf. Can't wait to get back!!!

What an amazing coastal B&B!

You are warmly welcomed and upon walking into your room you will find they have already turned the air conditioning on to cool you off, and you'll have a welcome note with fresh baked cookies.

The property itself is very impressive! Many family rooms in the downstairs to either play pool, work on a puzzle, watch tv or read a book, and there is a great big porch with many rocking chairs to take in the coastal air.

Can't wait for breakfast in the morning, and I highly recommend it!
