We love the Captain's House! Have stayed there twice, looking forward to visiting again in August 09. What we love most is sitting in a lawn chair on the rocks behind the house, just gazing at the vast Atlantic Ocean, with the shore birds, boats and crashing waves. You can fall asleep to the sound of the waves, especially if you stay in Room 1 or Room 2, with windows overlooking the ocean. Gretchen is a sweetheart and a wonderful hostess, never intrusive, always helpful. Breakfast is perfectly adequate, a buffet catering to all tastes, and you get to sit at tables overlooking the water, either inside or on the wonderful porch, on a sunny morning. The rest of the day the house is quiet and comfortable, a good base for touring the North Shore.
