Captain's House
Ranked #11 of 24 Rockport B&B and Inns
Reviewed 31 July 2017

Lovely oceanfront B and B set on the rocky seashore. Quiet, very clean, comfortable and the perfect venue to relax. Gretchen (owner) and Trish are helpful and accommodating without being intrusive. This is a home for travelers and you will not be disappointed. Room 1 was breathtaking at sunrise and the sounds of the ocean will lull you to sleep at night. My niece and I spent two wonderfully recharging days at this beautiful location. I highly recommend the Captains House.

Stayed: July 2017

It was everything you would expect in a bed and breakfast. From charm to opulence this place had it all.I would recommend it very highly. The rooms were spacious and quite inviting yet not "over the top" just VERY NICE.

Only an hour from Boston, yet we felt like we were in another world. Sitting outside the Captain's House took you away and made relaxing mandatory. The waves crashing, the sun on your face and peaceful surroundings with a short drive away from the center of town made this the perfect weekend getaway. The hosts were lovely and welcoming and the room was beautiful albeit cozy. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Staying here felt like an AirBnB experience - in the best possible way. Having lodged at a good number of B&Bs and inns, The Captain's House is markedly different because it genuinely feels like staying at a friend's house. Family photos and mementos of the proprietors adorn the walls and spaces. The common areas - including a spacious living room, a dining area with a commanding view of the ocean and a sea-facing porch - are comfortable and well kept. Our room was spacious and came with the ultimate luxury - the sight and sound of the Atlantic. Gretchen, one of the owners and our host, achieves the near-impossible balance of being available and providing ightseeing/dining tips and also treating you like a responsible guest. Downtown Rockport is less than a 20 minute scenic walk. I was hard-pressed to leave the grounds though - the views, comfort and tranquil settings of the Captain's House provided the formula for a relaxing weekend getaway. This place is run with care, consideration and dare I say it, with love.

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 AM and you could smell the coffee brewing upstairs. There was a variety of options from yogurt to granola, hard boiled eggs, English muffins, fresh fruit, juice and coffee. Every morning there was a different home made baked item. We rode our bikes to Bearskin Neck and Front Beach. It saved us the hassle of looking for parking. We saw Gretchen upon arrival and when we left. We were looking for the B&B experience and got exactly that.
