What a lovely place – beautiful old home, tastefully decorated and absolutely charming hosts. Our room was cosy and clean with beautiful furniture. The wrap-around porch with comfy furniture made us wish we had come in the summer – just for the pleasure of sitting on it! Breakfast was amazing. A really great place to stay.

Beautiful property in Westbrook. Charming, detail oriented Inn within walking distance to the Public City Beach (Long Island Sound). Despite being devoid of digital advantages, the tranquil air of this place makes up for this lack. The proprietors, Mary and Jim are solicitous, charming and informative!!! A great weekend escape!

My wife and I were attending a wedding in Madison, CT last weekend and rather than stay in New Haven or another nearby city we searched for B&B's in the area and were delighted to find the Captain Stannard house. It would be hard to imagine accommodations that would provide a better B&B experience than what we had here anywhere.... More

We found the house well equipped with plenty of extra space for guests - TV area - Games area- plenty of games in the cupboard - Pool table. Coffee and tea also drinks available. Fridge available for guests. The rooms were comfortable -... More

I was brought up on the Connecticut shoreline in a little town called Clinton, CT so I have been familiar with the Captain Stannard House for many, many years. When it came time for my 50th high school reunion, I decided to stay there to save having to drive back and forth to my home in northern CT each night.... More

After a long week we were looking for someplace to unwind, and this inn could not have been better. Easy to get to and find, just far enough of I95 to be nice and quiet, impeccably maintained and clean, great home-made breakfast, and plenty of waterfront spots for lunch and dinner in the immediate area. Essex, Lyme, Mystic all within... More

We stayed here for 3 days while visiting friends in Westbrook. I loved the French toast, the large porch and yard (where we spend one morning playing our guitars and singing) the easy walk to the beach, and the friendly owners. There is always cold water, tea, rooms and bath were clean and very nicely decorated. The downstairs was large... More

Small B&B about 10 rooms. Very clean room with adequate linens etc. Public rooms large and well stocked with games. Breakfast very nice. The owners are friendly. Outdoor porch and nice yard with a number of lawn games available. Only problem with room was the sunlight streaming in at 5AM, no drapes or room darkeners.
