The Captain’s House Inn Accommodations

Our Cape Cod bed and breakfast accommodations are located in four distinct facilities: the Main House, an 1839 Greek-Revival style mansion; the attached Carriage House; the newly converted Stables; and the 200-year-old “bow roof cape” called the Captain’s Cottage. The guest rooms are named after the wife, daughters, and ships of the inn’s original owner, sea Captain Hiram Harding.

All guest rooms feature private bathrooms (some with whirlpool tubs), air conditioning, TV’s with DVD players, and fireplaces. Whether you select a standard queen room or one of our sumptuously appointed suites, you will find luxurious linens, designer bath amenities, and a complimentary welcome basket with snacks, bottled water, and plenty of special touches to make your stay as comfortable as possible. All guest rooms offer king or queen-size beds and antique furnishings, coupled with modern amenities like complimentary Wifi. Our helpful staff is always happy to guide you to the perfect accommodation to suit your needs.
