It Was All a Wonderful Experience!

"I can not say enough wonderful things about this place! The hospitality, the food, the guests ,the atmosphere, the owners, it was all a wonderful experience. Breakfast was amazing all the way around. Family style breakfast with the all the Inn guests. Real people talking and eating at one table! No cell phones, just nice conversation with people. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much Carol and Ted! This place is a real gem👍"

Located in the historic village of Poquetanuck within the town of Preston, Connecticut, the family home built by Captain William Avery Gonzales Grant in 1754 stands as one of the oldest preserved buildings of its time. The story of the Grant family took a sad turn when, at the age of just 32, Captain Grant died at sea off the shore of Cape Hatteras. He left behind his wife, Mercy Adelaide Grant, his two children, and one unborn child. Captain Grant's wife lived the remainder of her life in the home before passing away in the 1800s.

The story doesn't end there. Many say that Mercy continues to wait for Captain Grant to return home. Captain Grant's is said to be haunted by the wife of the late sea captain, among other ghostly beings. It's not much of a stretch to think that Captain Grant's could be haunted. The original town cemetery dating all the way back to the 1600s can be found just behind the house, and the modern cemetery dating to the 1800s is found just in front of it. 

Carol, 0ne of the Inn's owners, likes to joke that she has more dead than living neighbors.

Carol bought Captain Grant's over 25 years ago and lovingly restored the dilapidated building, turning it into a beautiful historic bed and breakfast that has been serving guests for over two decades. Guests come from all over to experience the paranormal, and most leave having experienced the unexplained. Common occurrences include hearing footsteps in the attic or taps on guest room doors. Disembodied voices are also captured frequently.

Captain Grant's has gained notoriety over the years, appearing in TV on Home and Garden Television and A&E's Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal. They've been mentioned by a variety of news outlets too, including USA Today, CNN, and others.

Captain Grant's is a great place to find a ghost, but it's also a great place to find suburb service and comfort. Carol and Ted keep the inn stocked with beer, wine, soda, and dessert free for guests to enjoy. Guests can even enjoy a sip of crème sherry from the carafes in their guest rooms!

Even if you don't meet a ghost, you'll meet Carol and Ted, gracious, welcoming hosts dedicated to making your stay at Captain Grant's out of this world!

Carol wrote a book, The Ghosts of Captain Grant's Inn, about her own encounters with the supernatural both growing up and as the owner of Captain Grants. It's an interesting addition to a stay at Captain Grant's.


Carol and Ted Were Amazing Hosts!

"Where do I start? Carol & Ted were amazing hosts and their B&B Captain Grants and the Avery BnB we're incredibly charming. Breakfast was great every single day. We didn't experience any paranormal activities there during our 3-night stay (we stayed in the Margaret room) but we heard from other guests that they had. I actually booked the BnB without realizing it's haunted history. That was a pleasant surprise for me— my husband- not so much. He arrived nervous and left wanting to stay in the most haunted room (Adelaide room).
If you're into ghosts— stay here. If you're not— still, stay here. We had a blast!
PS- Read Carol's book before arriving! I wish I would have! 'The Ghosts at Captain Grants'"
