Once a sea captain's home, the historic (and aptly named) Captain Jefferds Inn charms guests with cozy rooms, such as this one that features its own old-fashioned fireplace. Indulgent freebies and modern touches also abound. Free gourmet breakfast, afternoon tea, and hot cider, as well as Wi-Fi, iPod docks, and flat-screen TVs round out this impressive hideaway.
