Captain Grant's Bed and Breakfast was originally built by Captain William Grant in 1754 for his wife, Mercy Adelaide Avery. Grant died at sea at age 32, but his wife lived into her 80's, and the home continued to house three generations of the Grant family. The home was a garrison to soldiers of the Revolutionary War. During the Civil War, the home was used to protect slaves. A major restoration took place after Ted and Carol purchased the home, and today the inn stands authentically restored to its former grandeur and prominence in this National Historic Connecticut village.

Captain Grant's features gleaming wide floor boards, gracious hand-hewn beams which have been cleaned and varnished, and a rebuilt seven-foot-wide staircase. Fortunately, the original banister and balusters had been stored in the attic since 1880 and were able to be used. A modern bath was added to each bedroom, a three-story deck was added to the side of the house, and the home's beautiful keeping room, library, and dining room are now open for the pleasure and comfort of guests. In 1996, a national Shetucket-Quinnebaug Corridor grant was awarded to the Inn, enabling the owners to restore the front stone wall and complete the landscaping. The home has also been placed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Lodging accommodations at Captain Grant's are top-notch. Each lovely guest room features a full private bath, color television, and air conditioning. Two of these rooms even offer Cherry Shaker canopy beds, and five have fireplaces. The home is decorated throughout with a combination of Shaker reproduction furniture and antiques. Guests are offered a complimentary glass of wine each evening. Chess, Chinese checkers, and a variety of other games are available for use in the library.

After a good night's sleep, you'll be greeted with a full candlelit country breakfast that includes juice, coffee, meats, muffins, fresh fruits, fancy eggs, and breads. Carol's apple French toast and home-canned jellies are always a special treat.

To experience the true spirit and charm of New England, spend your next vacation or business trip at Captain Grant's. This historic home and its warm hosts are sure to foster pleasant memories that will last for years to come.

Captain Grant's was featured on HGTV in 2002 and recommended as one of the romantic places to take a loved one by Maxim Magazine. In October 2003, Captain Grant's was listed by USA Today as one of the best Inns to visit. The Inn was also bannered by MSNBC.com as one of the best places to stay in New England, and the Inn's Halloween special was featured on CNN Headline News in October 2003.

Captain Grant's lies in a unique area, within easy proximity of many exciting attractions in Southern New England. Poquetanuck Village itself, which is on the National Historic Register, captures the quaint spirit of New England. Close by are Foxwoods, the largest casino in the world, and the Mohegan Sun Casino.

Golf, fly and sea fishing, tennis, ocean beaches, and horseback riding are all within a short distance from the Inn's front door.
