Great Room at the Captain Stannard House

“Captain Stannard EXCELLENT”

I just spent the weekend at the Captain Stannard B & B and Country Inn. It is a wonderful place to spend some time. It is a very large Inn with plenty of room for both the guests and the family. Westbrook is a lovely town and the Inn is near the beach. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. The public rooms are full of interesting and inviting places to sit and relax. You can work on a puzzle, play a game or read a book. I could have stayed on the grand porch all weekend. Don't forget the second B - breakfast. The food was delicious and imaginative. There was no need for lunches. I'd like to go back in the winter and curl up by the fireplace.

Captains Rooms

Commissioned for beauty and purpose, our artisan salvaged the antique glass window, designed its embrace, and worked as he had been taught at his grandfather's knee, stripping the wood for the lattice, building a steamer under his workbench, and weaving the openwork by hand.

“Our favorite B&B!!

We have stayed at many B&B's on the Ct. shore and in New England. Captain Stannard House is by far our favorite! The size of the Inn is fantastic- large and roomy, while remaining cozy and comfortable. There are many areas to sit and relax, not just one room. There is a TV room, then a larger room with several areas- pool table, reading area, snuggle by the fire. Then there is a spectacular porch! There are many different areas to sit and relax on this huge porch. The rooms for sleeping are very tastefully decorated, with every attention to detail. Breakfast was very delicious and we liked that we had our own table. Mary and Jim are wonderful hosts, and they obviously enjoy what they do so much! I cannot forget to mention the "Itinerary Book" that Mary compiled. Full of information and suggestions of where to go and what to do. We want to enjoy this Inn during every season!

“Classic New England Inn”

Everything we thought it would be and then some. Jim and Mary are meant to be Inn Keepers. Place felt like a home away from home. Met folks from NYC, Boston and Seattle. Got a wonderful tip on a Steam Train Ride and River boat ride from the Bostonians. Had a lovely conversation over a bottle of wine with the newlyweds from Seattle. The New Yorkers were on their 4th or 5th stay, I believe. Stayed in the Scotland, which does now have a small but perfectly adequate TV. We weren't there for the TV and could get everything we needed newswise from our iPad as the Inn has wi-fi. Yummy Sweets with a sweet note were delivered each day-- Breakfast was wonderful loved the plum crumble! Farmer's Fritatta on Saturday was just as good as Mom used to make! Walked down the lane to the shore, wonderful homes, enhanced by the fall color. Don't miss a chance to be part of the porch sitters. The back porch and yard are an awesome place for any gathering. We'd just buried my husband's mom in CT and were looking for a place to relax before going home. The Captain Stannard House was just the ticket.
