Captain Stannard House Bed and Breakfast Country Inn

Reviewed 30 October 2009

I have visited Old Saybrook area for the last 24 months for business and have stayed nearly every stay at Captain Stannard House. When I didn't for reasons of cost cutting, I always regretted it. Jim, Mary, and Helen make me feel like family every visit. They knew what I liked and had it ready for me every morning. At the end of my busy day, coming to the CSH was like coming home. You can't get that from a hotel/motel. Two thumbs up, I'd give more but I only have two. Enjoy.

With family in the Westbrook area of Connecticut, I have stayed at several other nice bed & breakfast inns in the last few years. The Captain Stannard is the first one to which I look forward to returning.

Mary, Jim and Helen make a superb team, with genuine, welcoming hospitality in a first rate historic building. The rooms are traditional, yet lack for no modern conveniences. The cleanliness of the entire house is striking. There are several large recreation rooms available downstairs, coffee on the bar an hour before the delicious full breakfasts, and this time of year, hot cider in the late afternoon, scented with flavorful mulling spices.

I could go on, as others have. But the truth is, there's no need to. If you're looking for a first rates B&B close to the shore, look no further. You can do no better than the Captain Stannard, and its friendly owners and staff - period.

Seven of us traveled to Westbrook for a wedding at Capt Stannard House. MaryAnne, Jim and Helen treated us like royalty for the entire weekend. Breakfasts are fresh and gourmet with beautiul place settings; the rooms are each a little jewel with comfortable beds; coffee/decaf, tea, mulled cider, soft drinks always available. We will definately return!

Just back from our annual fall weekend escape from NYC. This year we stayed at the Captain Stannard House and enjoyed it very much. My wife and I felt very much at home and enjoyed the generous public areas. We stayed in the Barque Daniel Webster room and found it clean, comfortable and quiet. The entire B&B is spotless and great attention is put into every possible detail. Many thanks to Jim, Mary and Helen for a wonderful weekend stay. I would highly recommend the Captain Stannard House and look forward to visiting again soon.

This was our first stay at a B&B and for sure was the best decision we made for our 20th Anniversary. Mary, Helen and Jim were wonderful and their attention to detail was amazing! The Inn is absolutely beautiful not to mention the home made breakfasts and treats when you returned to your room. They are in a perfect location, not far from Mystic or the casinos. There is so much history in the area that even though we packed in so much, we didn't even make a dent. Definately worth going back, not only to stay with the Brewsters but to see more in the area.

We found this place traveling from Boston to JFK. It was few days too late. Founding it earlier we would stay there for longer. Everything we needed was waiting for us. We could play pool drinking beer. Big tarace was open for long evening conversations. And breakfast - unusual for US, homemade and served like in five stars restaurant. Hopefully will come back for longer.

Our stay at Captain Stannard House was wonderful - Jim, Mary & Helen did an outstanding job of being our hosts. We couldn;'t have asked for more. Our rooms were spotless and beautiful. Our family gathered from Friday until Sunday. We didn't have to go anywhere else. Our memories will be cherished for a long time. Not to mention wonderful breakfasts. Our entire family stayed the weekend and each one loved being there. Our money was well spent.

Cannot wait to go back!
