Captain's Quarters Inn
Ranked #4 of 8 Edenton B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 6 September 2012

My husband and I recently spent 3 days at the Rib University with Diane and Don, using our Living Social coupon. We really learned a lot from a real expert and had a great time talking barbecue with our hosts and other guests. The food was yummy, and the room was very clean and spacious. Knowing that you are staying in an old home when you are at a B&B should tell you there may be some creaks and sound issues, but we really enjoyed our stay. The one suggestion I would make is for them to use some fabric softener with the towels. They were pretty scratchy. That said, we would do this again in a heartbeat!

The Captain’s Quarters Inn and Restaurant, nestled with other antebellum homes on West Queen in historic Edenton N.C., is an architectural beauty with a semi-circular porch and colorful cottage gardens lining the walkways. We stayed in the second floor Captain of Her Heart room, comfortably furnished with a four poster bed and a very spacious bathroom with sunken tub, two-sinked vanity and shower. Don and Diane are the gracious innkeepers of Inn, yet we soon learned that their talents extended beyond those of most proprietors of a small-town bed and breakfast.

The morning after our first night’s stay, we entered the sun-filled pale-yellow dining area decorated with seafoam green tablecloths, floral china, and garden-grown zinnias and celosias on each table. For breakfast, we noshed on ripe fresh fruit and a light fluffy omelet filled with shallots, mushrooms and smoky Gouda cheese, crispy hash browns, thick flavorful bacon, and home-baked multigrain toasted bread. What an unexpected surprise to have such a remarkably delicious breakfast! Upon sampling Diane’s culinary talents, we learned that she is a classically trained chef and uses farm-fresh local produce to create her sumptuous meals. Don is the ‘bacon, sausage and ribs’ grill- and smoke-master and has extensive expertise in wines from his years living in Napa Valley.

After a day of exploring the town’s historic buildings and investigating Albemarle Sound, we returned to the Inn for dinner. The dimly lit dining area had been transformed for the evening with soft lighting and jazz background music. We and two other couples were greeted by Jack, a polite and gracious young man, who introduced himself as our waiter for the evening and Don, innkeeper by day/sommelier by night, who chose the perfect wine pairings for each course. Dinner began with an amuse bouche of sundried tomato and fresh basil wrapped in homemade mozzarella, a delicious mouthful of more wonderful tastes to come. The first course, smoked trout with a white bean salad drizzled with lemon aioli, was paired with a crisp and fruity Napa Valley Chardonnay. We then enjoyed a tender ribeye steak in a rich red wine rosemary sauce accompanied by roasted baby potatoes and summer vegetable medley of eggplant, squash, tomatoes and onions, paired with a flavorful French syrah-grenache blend. Dessert was a moist and flavorful upside down blueberry cake topped with a scoop of vanilla gelato. All of us applauded Chef Diane as she greeted us after this sumptuous meal and raved about this unexpected a 5 star dinner at a bed and breakfast!

Before departing the next morning, we savored a delicious Sunday morning breakfast of fluffy buttermilk pancakes topped with a thick fresh blueberry sauce and home-cured sausage.
After reviewing the other restaurant choices in the local area, we’re sure that we made the right choice dining with Don and Diane. We both agreed that $49 per person was reasonable for such a gourmet meal and generous wine pours throughout the evening. Enthusiastically recommended by a couple of food & wine enthusiasts!

Just returned home from Captain's Quarters Inn -- what a wonderful 2 days! Don & Diane, the innkeepers, made our B&B experience one we will not soon forget. My husband and I were there for the Rib University. What fun preparing ribs with Don - he's quite the expert - and we enjoyed the fruits of our labor for dinner - YUM!! Diane's breakfasts were wonderful - cornmeal pancakes with blueberry compote, delicious sausage that Don made and fresh fruit the 1st morning. This morning was a wonderful frittata, potatoes, fresh fruit and biscuits. The Inn is very pretty -- our room was quite comfortable and very clean. Edenton is a beautiful little town and Captain's Quarters is one of it's most beautiful assets.

I took my husband here for a surprise 40th birthday weekend gettaway. I couldn't have been more impresssed. As a recommendation from a friend and our first time at a Bed and Breakfast I really wasn't sure what to expect. This turned out to be a surprise for both of us. The room was clean, the customer service was beyond superior, and the attention to detail from the decor to the dining music was superb!! We can't wait to plan our next visit.

We went here in July 2012 as a birthday present to me. We stayed two nights and had a very favorable impression of this B&B. The room we stayed in was large and comfortable. We really enjoyed preparing a rib dinner with the owner, who is really into rib preparations and competitions. It's little things like this that make the difference between a regular B&B and a memorable B&B. Edenton itself is a very small town and very relaxing. We would definitely stay here again.

It was our first trip to a B&B. I was excited to bring my husband there on a holiday. I was a bit nervous, but Don and Diane were just so cordial. Given the age of the house, the room was so clean. They brought coffee and goodies outside my bedroom door in the morning. I expected my allergies to flair, but they never did-kudos to the housekeepers. Dianne made awesome breakfast both days-the fluffiest biscuits I have ever had in my life, , and Don-oh my word-made the best sausage ever. We did do the Rib U class-and it was a great experience!

My wife and I stayed at The Captain's Quarters Inn of Edenton N.C.during July of this year. The location of the Inn is great. It's very clean as was the room we stayed in along with the Inn's restuarant. The atmosphere is casual but elegant in a mild way where as it doesn't feel ' overly formal '. Breakfast at the Inn was fine.Off street parking is available at the Inn. The one major down side we could think of, was our room's location. We reserved the room during the 4th of July week and accepted the last available room for our length of stay. It was room # 1 named The Captain's Perk room. It's entry is located on the 1st floor directly next to the main front desk/check location roughly 2 feet away from it and adjacent to the entrance to the Inn's dining room. Entering and exiting the room has you open the door catching people by surprise having to have them step aside so you can exit as they are either checking in or discussing something with the Innkeeper at the front desk. There was a table near the front desk near our room that was stationed with a pitcher of water, glassware and fruit with serving bowls for the morning breakfast. That was a nice feature but too close to the room. Especially if you would want to sleep in, you would have people lined up outside your door pouring water and scooping the morning fruit into the glassware. A little too much activity so close to a room. The restuarant has tables positioned visible to this particluar room as you enter and exit and we tried to ' step in and out quick ' of the room as some of our belonging's and the room's bed are clearly on display. Taking a late day nap was not possible with people checking in, laughing and talking within about 7 to 8 feet from our bed behind the closed door.The room's sink was very small with a glass shelf positioned very close above it. Bending down to wash your face has your face coming very close to the sink faucet and stepping back when standing up, helps you not hit your head on the glass shelf. It was a very small area to work in being 6' 2''. In all, we would stay there again but not book that particular room. I am sure in a more timely manner for reserving a room at this Inn, there would be better choices available.

Room Tip: Avoid room number 1 named The Captain's Perk room on the 1st floor.
