Captains House, B&B Fanø - The perfect place to stay for you who love nature, peace and sailing.
Fanø and Nordby is the perfect place to relax with old sailing stories and studies. In the museum and in Nordby and Sønderho you will find the origins of men from the Danish world trading, with their sense of sturdy stubborn persistence which made sailing captains and crew open new markets in last century.
If our owner and skipper is around, we will try to make your stay unforgettable, by telling his many tales from his sailing business related ocean crossings, and surely how to invest in a Brazilian Ecovillage and sailing tall ships, which you also can here on this website.
If you book, you can learn how to windsurf , plan your next cruising or ocean sailing, small skiffs sailing (rentable in the local yacht club) or even the comfortable beach sailing and board sailing kites.
Along with historic Nordby's museums, you can also get Shanty singing and surely the seaman's most important items ; rum and freshly rolled cigarettes ( with home grown tobaccos ).
If all goes forward steady as is, weather permitting, you will be grilling and talking in the courtyard under the stars till the wee hours or early watch.
When the sun just appears in the horizon, it's time for amber sourcing on the freshly barren outgoing tide beach. Chasing away the seals and flatfish, to discover small fortunes in the bottom of sandy reefs. If high tide it's oyster picks and stone crab hunting is possible, when properly equipped with high rubber boots. A fresh oyster lunch can be the setting of newfound life in a whole new perspective. Champagne is always in the cooler of our refrigerator.
Come a see for your self and bring your rainhat and rubber boots...just in case...
