“Delightful Inn run by a delightful couple”
Reviewed August 21, 2009

When our lodging in Boothbay fell through at the last minute on an August Saturday, we were pleased to find an opening here. The setting is intimate and the hosts are very warm and helpful. They know the area well and make you feel at home. I would highly recommend this Inn.

We were in the Freeport ME area in September 2005 for some meetings and wanted to spend a few days away from the hustle and commercialism of Freeport. After searching the Internet we found The Captain's Watch B&B in Cundy's Harbor in Harpswell, Maine.

They are located near the southern tip of one of Main's craggy peninsulas a 20 minute scenic drive south of Brunswick, Maine. We were surprised how many good restaurants could be found in Brunswick - which made it easy for a nice night out and a quick drive back to the Captain's Watch. For the more traditional tourist activities you'll find LL Bean and the shops in Freeport only 30 minutes from this quiet, secluded hideaway.

Since we had a lengthy drive to Cundy's Harbor we requested a late arrival. Owners Donna and Ken met us at the door and gave us the grand tour of the facility. The main building, which dates back to the mid 1800's, is where the guests stay. The owner's residence is in a newer wing (albeit still old) attached on the western side of the house. There are four or five wonderfully decorated and equipped guest rooms all with private baths. We were fortunate to have one of the second floor suites - which includes a door leading upstairs to the 8-sided cupola with a 360-degree view. We enjoyed a late night looking out at the lights over the water as well as a brilliant sunrise one morning.

Breakfast was included and cooked to order. We enjoyed a lazy Sunday morning around the breakfast table looking at all the historic information on the old hotel and surrounding area. Although we didn't have the time they also have a large sailboat (we did stop and see it) and can give you tours around the coast.

Having recently stayed again in the Freeport area in one of the major chains - if you're looking to enjoy this part of Maine and want to be away from the madness of tourism in Freeport you'll find a better experience for less money here!
