We stayed at the Captain's House over the 2016 Labor Day weekend in Room 4. It had a spectacular view of the ocean and was just what we expected. We were able to get a peek at the other rooms and agree with other reviewers that Room 1 is the best of all. The breakfast was available early in the... More

I don't usually write reviews but was checking back to book The Captains House again for next summer and saw a review calling this B&B disappointing. My experience was great! The sun porch furniture was NOT in disrepair. It is not new but perfectly adequate. My bed in room 3 was very comfortable. I loved the continental breakfast with the... More

Although the setting has an amazing view the amenities are limited. For the cost we expected a bit more. We stayed in room 1. The best view in the house! The sunroom faces Thatcher Island and sunrise was amazing! At night the moon was a spectacular site! As I said the charm of the place was a missing amenity. We... More

Captain's House is a fantastic B&B in Rockport. Our first visit to the area and with our great experience, we'll be back. The Captain's House is comfortable and Gretchen is a very pleasant host. The views are phenomenal, as you are feet from the Ocean. Would recommend Room #1, with extra sunroom facing the Ocean. Sunrise is at 4:30am in... More

This was our first experience in a B&B where we stayed for two nights. This historical home is beautifully furnished and met all our needs. Our room was very comfy and we had a great view of the ocean and Thatchers Island with the twin lighthouses! When we arrived we were greeted by Trish who showed us around and offered... More

Gorgeous views with three lighthouses, lobster buoys, marvelous sunsets, and sounds that are guaranteed to make you forgot the ratrace back home.
