I booked the Holly Room and Margaret Room online. I called to verify my reservation and was never told they were in a different house. I called again two days before my trip and mentioned I was staying in those rooms. It was then that I was told that they were in the Avery House. Ted stated the Avery House...

My husband and I have stayed in many B & B's, and consider Captain Grant's to be one of our favorites. Breakfast on the terrace was outstanding, our room was immaculate and well-appointed, and Ted and Carol were delightful hosts. The house itself is rambling and full of nooks and crannies, just what you would expect from a pre-Revolutionary War...

Well what can I say, I chose this place because I was tired of chain hotels and wanted to put something into the pockets of independent owners for a change. I was not disappointed, Ted and his lovely wife were charming and cultured hosts. The breakfast was the best I've had for a very long time, scrambled eggs to die...

My wife and I went to Captain Grant to re-kindle our love affair which had been started in High School and been interrupted by life, Ted and his crew set up a perfect atmosphere for us including having rose petals on our bed when we arrived. It was the perfect start to a great weekend. We came back the next...

My husband and I stayed at Captain Grants in 2013. What a beautiful BnB!!! We walked around the beautiful yard with great landscaping. This home is very charming.

Thank you Ted for your review. We love the history of this place as much as our guests. We strive to keep the old girl (Captain Grant's) in excellent shape and sometimes we miss a bit. As long as we keep at it our guests get a bit of change in their experience each time they stay and there are...

We have stayed at Captain Grants three times, while participating in the zydeco festival at Strawberry Park. We have enjoyed our stays each time. Carol and Ted are wonderful hosts. They put a lot of effort into making people feel welcome, assembling a nice breakfast, and running a clean and nice establishment. The room we stay in is small (the...

Let me start out by saying that I just love Ted and Carol. Without a doubt they are committed to the hospitality business and understand the importance of insuring that their guests enjoy a wonderful stay in this historical home. I am afraid that I have done them a great injustice by not writing a review sooner. Better late than...
