“We were royalty at The Captain's House Inn.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2012

My husband and I decided to stay at The Captain's House Inn for Labor Day weekend in 2012 (Sat-Wed). We were there to celebrate our 10th year anniversary and we are so happy this is the place we chose. The inn is located on Cape Cod in the town of Chatam which is not far to down town Chatam and the local beach. The grounds were immaculate. Beautiful gardens and heated swimming spool. We selected the Northern Lights Room which came with a huge, comfy king size bed. The room is decorated perfectly and has a sweet little fire place and outdoor patio to relax by. The room was spacious and the light instrumental music they play is so soothing that we left it on all through the night. Each day they ensured our refrigerator was stocked with bottles of water and Nantucket Cranberry juice. The snack basket was also re-stocked daily with Cape Cod kettle cooked potatoe chips and Kashi granola bars. My favorite was the Lindtt mint chocolates that they left for you each morning when they cleaned and replensished your room and at night during turn down serivice. The room has every amentity including a coffee pot which we never used because coffee, tea and juice is brought every morning at the time you choose. Tea time is from 3:00-5:00pm. They offered a lot of different cakes, cookies, pies teas, coffee, etc. Then they put out an evening snack at night from 6:00-10:00 which also offers an array of goodies, drinks and hot chocolate. The library is completley stocked with updated DVD movies which you can take back to your room and enjoy (yes there is a TV). Let's not forget to mention the complimentary Port and whiskey offered in the library as well. Breakfast was always gormet. Perfectly plated meals that were delicious and filling. Besides your main course they offer a continental breakfast with bagels, toast, pastries, fruit, yogurt, cereal, granola etc. They start you off with their "Fruit Starter" of the day and they bring you cute little individual pots of coffee or tea. Absolutley a wonderful way to start the day. So now let me talk about the staff. First off I must mention that the inn keepers Jill and James were not there for the first part of our trip. They were on a family vacation and rightfully so (all families need these times). Thankfully their staff is absolutley amazing. Everything was seamless. Everyone from the maids, chiefs, and groundskeepers were helpful and kind. In fact we did not even realize the inn keepers were not there until two days later. How did we realize it? We found a greeting card in our room one night that was hand written and it was apologizing that they (Jill and James the inn keepers) were away, but that they couldn't wait to meet us upon their return. Talk about a perfect touch. As promised we were greeted by a Jill on Tuesday morning. It just so happened that it was the day of our anniversary and we needed help with our plans to visit Martha's Vineyard. Jill told us exactly where to go what to do and took it upon herself to book our anniversary dinner at The Captain Linnell House in Orleans. She got the timing just right and the place was stunning! The food was amazing and the waitress brought me flowers for our anniversary. When we got back to our room that night Jill had sent chocolate covered strawberries with another card wishing us a Happy Anniversary. Such a simple touch but it meant the world to us. I can't say enough about The Captain's House Inn, it's wonderful staff, and it's thoughtful owners. They truly leave no stone unturned. Thank you for making our 10 year a memorable one. We will definatley be back in years to come. For those of you looking for the perfect B&B, than look no furthur, this is the real deal. It was worth every penny!!!

Room Tip: The Northern Lights room is stunning, spacious, and perfect for a romantic getaway.

We stayed here for 3 nights. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Jill and James are always available if you need any advise on local activities. James helped us book a car on Martha's Vineyard for a day trip. Access to downtown is within walking distance. I would cut across Barcliff instead of walking all the way down to the end of Old Harbor Road.

The breakfast was delicious and beatuifully displayed. The Port and Sherry in the library were a great touch. Our Room the Lady Hope was wonderful. We were even able to place a cot in there for my daughter. The grounds were absolutely beautiful and the pool was great! I can't wait to go again next summer. The is B&B is beyond wonderful!

We spent 8 wonderful days here in early August and it was a fantastic experience from start to finish. Wonderful accommodation, beautiful grounds and gardens, very friendly and attentive service, nothing was too much trouble. Breakfast, afternoon tea, and night time cookies with hot drinks - what more could you ask for? We would not hesitate to stay again if we are on the Cape.

This B&B was so nice. We were impressed as soon as we pulled into the parking lot. The grounds are absolutely beautiful. Our room (in the main house) was large, clean and very comfortable. We opted to turn off the a/c and open a few windows as the evenings were cool. Breakfast couldn't be better. We had breakfast out on the patio which was awesome. Food was delicous and original. The staff was more than helpful and Jill (Innkeeper) went above and beyond to ensure that you had a good stay. Take Jill's advice, she knows everything about Cape Cod. We liked that the Inn was withing walking distance to downtown Chatham. We regretted that we didn't book one more night as it would have been nice to simply hang at the pool for a day or two. Highly recommend this B&B.

Room Tip: Hanna Rebekkah Room - great room on the main floor with lots of windows. Bathroom was nice but a si...

My husband and I stayed at the Captain’s House Inn this month (August 2012) and it was absolutely wonderful. Everything exceeded our expectations and it was breathtaking as we pulled into the gates. The rooms, gardens, Adirondack chairs, pool, outdoor breakfast area, etc. were all perfect. I could go on and on. Everything about the Inn made our experience great. The Innkeepers, Jill and James were excellent. They recommended things to do and places to eat. The British interns were delightful. Food was wonderful. We loved the rooms (oriental rugs, antique pencil post beds, wingback chairs, etc.) I HIGHLY recommend Captain's House Inn to anyone. It is everything you could imagine when you think of "Cape Cod". We'll be back. Thank you to all at Captain's House for a wonderful vacation.

Room Tip: You can't go wrong with any room!

We stayed for 5 nights in two rooms with our two kids. The place in beatifully maintained, garden neatly trimmed, everything fits together. The staff is very helpful, easygoing and alsways willing to help, but never too much. Breakfast is varied and fresly cooked. Tea at 4pm is complimentary and very good. We gained a few pounds probably ;-)
The rooms are very different, so pick your room carefully, they are all nice but some are nicer than others. I would avoid the rooms next to the pool.
The only thing that they should upgrade is the gym, it is too small and not well ventilated, they know this and are working on it. Good central location too!
