A Rare Find

The Captain Stannard Bed & Breakfast Country Inn is indeed a rare find!

Guest Rooms

Eachbedroomis individually designed and appointed for comfort. Each room has personal climate control and is spacious enough for just the right-size desk and easy sitting chair, all the better to bite into one of the family recipe sweets hand delivered with a note to your room every day.

Each room has its own bathroom with 100% cotton towels and our beds are dressed with pressed 100% cotton linens. Yes, we really do iron our sheets.


Full two coursebreakfastis an affair to remember. Jim shops the night before for the morning’s fresh fruit. Sometimes he combines that with homemade bread or pound cake. Sometimes he bakes fresh morning cobbler.

This first course is followed with a homemade entree such as our famous maple French toast and spiral ham or our egg, sausage, sun-dried tomato, cheese bake and roll or swanky eggs on homemade biscuits and thick sliced bacon.

Both courses are served in the dining room at private tables on heritage china after early morning coffee porchside or by the hearth. Yes, we make our breakfast from scratch every morning.

Country Inn

As a truecountry inn,we have 3,000 square feet of indoor common area, an 80 foot covered porch with cooling fans and a full half acre South lawn!

Whether you are looking for the privacy of a couple getaway, gathering with friends and family, hosting a special occasion or dreaming of a boutique wedding, there is space just for you. Yes, we customize each and every event.

As acountry inn,we have floor to ceiling hearths in the 30’ by 30’ Dining Room and in the Great Room with regulation pool table, comfy reading nooks, conversation areas and an on-going puzzle table. The Imagination Room’s baby grand piano says, “come-and-play-me.” Personally selected itineraries, favorite nearby restaurant menus, and a TV are in the Captain’s Room with the coffee and tea bar, guest refrigerator and guest microwave.
