We were looking for a place in the Madison, Westbrook area to serve as a base for a couple of scenic drives up the coast and a trying some local eateries, preferably with a little history. Capt. Stannards fit that bill. It's a converted captain's house from the late 1800s within walking distance to a local beach. We stayed in...

I had the pleasure of staying 2 nights in this beautiful rustic b&b. From the moment I had arrived I was in AWE by the old charm of this GEOURGOUS home.

We stayed one night for our anniversary and couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. The host couple, Jim and Mary, were so nice and friendly. The room was very comfortable and the property itself is gorgeous. Our breakfast was incredible, Jim really outdid himself. We will be returning for another stay soon.

My husband and I had never been to Coastal Connecticut. We researched accommodations for days and were most impressed by the accounts of others who had visited this beautiful Bed and Breakfast. Upon our arrival we were delighted to find that the Inn was even more outstanding than the website had depicted. The Inn itself is a virtual treasure trove...

My husband and I really enjoyed this place. The food was wonderful, the couple who run it were excellent. And they were so friendly and gave us great ideas on where to go for dinner. It's a nice place to stay if you want to bicycle around the area especially given the beaches which are very near.

Mary and I are truly sorry you were disappointed in your stay. We had to be away and thought we had all the covered but it sounds like some things fell through the cracks in your case. I hope you will give us another chance so we can spoil you as we usually do.

We enjoyed our stay at Captain Stannard very much. It is a beautiful and charming building. Our bed was comfortable, the air conditioning worked well, and the room was spacious and pretty. . The inn was fairly close to the beach also. . My wife and I were fortunate, though, as the owners only had a limited amount of beach...

We expected to enjoy this place much more than we did, based on the reviews. The good things: the good location for our interests, the nice sized room and attractive furnishings and the beauty of the rest of the house and grounds. The cons: No one was there to meet us when we arrived (at 7:30 PM.) so we had...

We were celebrating our one year anniversary, it was Labor Day weekend, and decided to go away last minute. Captain Stannard House was available, accommodating and affordable! We arrived right at 4:00 for check-in, was greeted by the Innkeeper and two other couples staying at the B&B. Everyone was very friendly. The house was beautiful, old and lots of character....

We only stayed for one night at the inn, but Jum was very welcoming on our arrival. Although breakfast is normally served at 9 on request we could have an early breakfast. As the inn is so close to the beach, they provide beach towels - what a great service! The only drawback we found is that in the room...
