“Our third visit and looking forward to our fourth!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2011

We vacationed in Maine this July and spent part of our week at this B&B -- it was our third visit in as many years. Donna and Ken are always so gracious, pleasant and helpful from reservations to checkout. We stayed in different room than previous visits but found it to be as comfortable and relaxing as the rooms we had stayed in previously. Breakfast was superb (sour cream blueberry pancakes one day and individual omelets the other) and the conversation with the other guests was interesting and very enjoyable.

We were in search of an historic, authentic Maine coast experience - and we found it!
Donna and Ken have thought of everything - the rooms are cozy and homey and spotless,
the food was first rate - better omelets than we had in France and sublime sour cream pancakes (and Donna shares the recipe!)

These are folks who are experts at what they do, they made us feel so welcome and
and comfortable and were so helpful in their suggestions. We wanted to move into the Captain's Watch and stay there forever!

I have traveled the globe with Ice Capades and Disney on Ice for over 20 years, and this beautiful B&B was the best lodging experience I have ever had ! The Captains Watch is a very clean, quiet, and comfortabe place to stay.....I didn't want to leave, so I stayed an extra nite ! Donna and Ken are by far the best hosts ever ! The food was fantastic and the company was warm and welcoming. I definitly recommend this wonderful establishment to anyone in search of a home away from home experience !

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beautiful !

This is a jewel of a B & B! Donna Dillman has thought of everything to make one`s stay a delight. We stayed in Cupola East heading up the coast and Harborview coming back (they both have views of the little harbor). The rooms are tastefully furnished, and the breakfasts are really,really good. This place is the perfect combinatin of homey comfort with just enough elegance to make it very special.

As all of the reviews say, Ken & Donna are wonderful hosts. The B&B is very clean, which is a must for me before I'll even take off my shoes! The breakfasts were yummy. My only complaint was the room itself. Our room was Harbor View. The bed was very uncomfortable. Usually beds at B&B are very soft and comfy. Not so for this one. There was one easy chair in the room that was so well used that it felt like you were sitting on the bare frame. I cannot speak for the other rooms but from what I saw, they appeared to be quite nice. Ours gets a zero for comfort.

captainswatch, Owner at The Captain's Watch Bed and Breakfast, responded to this review, May 23, 2011
To our perspective guests, we would like to address the above comments. We only found out about the perceived problems after checking our reviews. Please know we can and would have adjusted the firmness of the bed (we have toppers to add to any mattress for anyone wishing a softer sleeping surface, however many guests appreciate a good firm mattress). We pride ourselves with accommodating our guests individual needs. We are sorry that no reference was made to the beautiful broad view over the water and sparkling sunrises right from this bed. Without our knowing, the occasional chair (a swivel leather recliner) had been lowered to a point which allowed the pedestal support to be felt when one sat...easily fixed....but to avoid this problem again, the chair has been replaced by a comfy wing back chair. We hope that you will know any comfort that these folks felt was lacking has been corrected. We are B&B hosts for over 25 years and care about our guests.

Captain's Watch Bed and Breakfast and Sailing Charters in Harpswell, Maine was the perfect place for my husband and I to stay with his parents for several days this summer! The hosts were superb in helping us with various details of our trip and very friendly. My in-laws had a room on the first floor which was very private and we stayed in a spacious, nicely decorated room on the 2nd floor w/ stairs that led to the third floor cupola with fabulous views of the harbor. Breakfasts were delicious! The location, Cundy's Harbor is a small, quiet working harbor where lobster boats go out every day, and is very picturesque for booking a sailing charter, or kayaking. There are several land preserves in the area for ocean walks or wooded hikes past fairy houses and cliff overlooks. For inclement weather Freeport is only 40 minutes away for shopping and Bath and Brunswick are an equally short distance away with museums and cultural activities. There were many fine restaurants in the area, only a short drive away.

This was our second visit to the Captain's Watch Bed & Breakfast in Harpswell, Maine. On both occasions, our hosts, Donna and Ken, made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. The room we stayed in overlooks Cundy's Harbor, a working lobster harbor, and was very comfortable. We enjoyed meeting and getting to know the other guests over breakfast each morning and Donna is a wonderful cook!! Both Ken and Donna are extremely knowledgeable about the area, its sights, restaurants and the things that make this part of Maine special. They both take a genuine interest in their guests and their interests. Directions, recommendations, and advice were spot on! On our way home, we were already planning our next trip to Maine and the Captain's Watch B&B!
