The Captain's Quarters Inn is a rare combination of history and haute cuisine. It is run by Don and Diane Pariseau who used to own the famed and highly ranked Triology restaurant in the heart of wine country in Saint Helena, Ca. By moving to Edenton in Eastern North Carolina, they are bringing culinary sophistication to this elegant and well preserved historic town. The Inn, is a of course a centinary home, with large, comfortable rooms with high ceiling and a lot of windows. Each room has a maritime theme and is furnished with fine antiques, ours is named after Blackbeard the infamous pirate who lived in the area a couple of hundreds yeard ago.

Diane is a outstanding Chef who received a four star rating from the influential Wine and Spectator magazine; our palates completely agree with this rating. We had two breakfasts and a dinner at the Inn in a cozy five-table dining room that is reminiscent of small French inns. The food is artisanal, fixed and presented with flair, never overpowering, and full of flavor and complexity. We highly recommend the very reasonably priced prix-fixe dinner: it is a wonderful cultural and culinary experience.

Both the town of Edenton and the Captain’s Quarters are true gems that complement each other and should be in the destination list of every traveler who wants to experience history and great food in a sophisticated and relaxed manner.

Don't stay here--stay at the newly renovated, lovely Granville Queen. The Captain's Quarters is OK, but our room was a bit shabby and our bathroom was something out of a 1970s trailer park. The hosts are nice, but they shouldn't be charging what they do given that they are right nextdoor to the historic, elegant Granville Queen. It's amazing, but both places cost the same. We toured the Granville Queen, including its rooms, and we will know better next time. That's the place to stay in Edenton.

Booked a wine-and-dine package at the Captains' Quarters Inn recently during a 3 night stay in Edenton, NC. The location is ideal for walks through the historic center of Edenton, close to the waterfront. The rooms are decorated with a nautical motif, each one different and very tastefully done. The hosts, Don and Diane, are very friendly and accommodating. But here's the best part: the FOOD!
Diane is a Master Chef and Don really knows his wines, so for our dinner the 2nd night we were treated to a fabulous 4 course meal with wine. Not only is this the best place in town for food, it would be the best place in most towns for food. The cuisine easily compares to the finest restaurants in the world's best restaurant towns (Paris and San Francisco come to mind). This is THE place to stay.

Would have been perfect if the bed didn't squeak so much. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2-night stay at Captain's Quarters. This was our first B&B, but our more experienced fellow guests confirmed our impressions that this was a great place. We had spacious, well decorated rooms with large private baths and lots of hot water. Don and Diane Pariseau were very hospitable and made sure everyone's needs were met at the Inn and during our free time. We had a wine package which raised our expertise and helped us socialize with the other guests. The gourmet meal on night two was better than any other in town (we tried the other places). Again, the only distraction for us was our bed barked at the slightest move. We highly recommend this B&B; given the Saturday night dining alternatives staying anywhere else in Edenton would be a mistake.

Excellent B&B with gourmet dining and superb wine list. Husband and wife team are transplants from Sonoma, California. They owned the Triliogie Restaurant in St. Helena. The B&B is just walking distance to the the water.

They offer many packages from Wine & Dine to Sailing.
