“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

We couldn't be happier with our recent stay! We were looking for relaxation and we weren't disappointed! We had a lovely suite type room.... Lady Mariah, which was beautiful. The staff as always, was very helpful and so nice nice. Jill, the owner was very visible at breakfast greeting and welcoming back guests. Each morning a full breakfast is offered, with multiple choices.... Very gourmet offerings, which are delicious! The owners make all guests feel welcomed. I am looking forward to another visit in the very near future! I can not say enough about this beautiful inn.... Perfect for a weekend of rest and relaxation.

Just back from another wonderful stay at the Captain's House Inn. I commend Jill and James and their excellent staff for a consistently excellent experience. They are attentive and always ready to help. They do a great job responding to special requests (such as my gluten free diet). I did not even have to mention it- they remembered from last time! As always the breakfasts were wonderful, as was the afternoon tea. Coffee is brought to your room in the morning. The rooms are unique and well appointed. They pay attention to the little details (such as snacks and juice on arrival) that make for a special experience.

My wife and I spent a great weekend at the Captain's House Inn. We had been once before so it was nice to return. The inn has a wonderful atmosphere and feel to it. Breakfast is outstanding and plentiful-more so than any inn we have stayed in. Before breakfast coffee and juice was delivered to our room and in the afternoon there was tea along with pastries. Each evening we enjoyed the homemade cookies that were put along with tea, coffee, and hot chocolate. For those who wished a glass of port could be had in front of the fire place. Service was outstanding and immediate and our room (Lady Hope) was great.
We will rreturn again to enjoy this inn.

Room Tip: Read about the rooms carefully. The descriptions are accurate. We have stayed in Lady Hope twice b...

Thank you for returning to the inn - repeat visits are the best compliment we could ask for! We're glad you enjoyed our breakfast "feast" and the Lady Hope room. Lady Hope is a popular choice - great space and amenities for the rate...and nice and quiet! Thanks for writing and we hope to see you again.

Eight visits! Wow - what a compliment. Always great to see you and so glad you enjoyed your stay once again. As I mentioned at breakfast, the black bean and beef hash is one of my favorites too - sounds heavy, but is actually fairly light and healthy. Thanks for your glowing review and we look forward to seeing you again!

My husband and I stayed in the Garden Room for a few nights during the summer. Our experience was very pleasant and we would certainly return. The room was clean and beautiful (as was the breakfast area) and all the small details made it feel luxurious- good toiletries, great shower, teatime, etc. The pool, while quite chilly, was well-kept and enjoyable to read by. Chatham is a nice location for getting to a variety of places and activities. A couple of very memorable experiences we had nearby were the whale watch off Provincetown (recommended by the innkeepers) and a kayak tour with Explore Cape Cod Kayak Adventures. The only point that was slightly weak in our opinion was the breakfast- while tasty and served in a pleasant atmosphere, it was a bit small and frilly for our tastes- we like a bit of a heartier breakfast- but still, we would definitely come back.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review for us. We're glad you enjoyed your visit but do want to address a couple points. The pool is not typically chilly - we did have a couple days last summer during which the heater broke which must have been during your stay. We apologize for that, but the heater has since been replaced and should be keeping the pool a pleasant temperature for the upcoming season. I don't know if you happen to remember the breakfast dishes you were served, but am curious so that we might make adjustments on those dishes. I don't know that I've ever had a guest comment that our breakfasts are small - if anything, I consistently hear the opposite. But perhaps there are some entrees in our rotation that could use work and we always strive to listen to feedback and act on any negatives. Feel free to email us if you can elaborate on the breakfasts - without honest feedback, we would not be able to improve our standards. Thanks and hope to see you again.

Stayed here for 4 nights in the Garden Room. Service was impeccable. Attention to the little things, the smallest details really made the Captain's House Inn stand out. Will ABSOLUTELY be returning, and would encourage anyone vacationing in Chatham to stay here.

My wife and I for a 2 night escape. Its been a while since we could do the bed and breakfast thing so what a nice way to remember just how much we liked this when we were sans kids. Its just what you'd imagine a New England bed and breakfast to be. Cozy and old but very well maintained. Grounds immaculate. High tea very nice and food both delicious and interesting. Service is outstanding. Feels like a bed and breakfast resort.

Would also recommend walking to the chatham bars inn for a meal. Pricey but feels right when you're there.
