Built at the turn of the century, this Queen Anne style Cape Cod B & B and adjacent Guest House reflect the gentility, charm and romantic elegance of the Victorian Age. Stained glass windows, rich woodwork, gleaming hardwood floors and antique furnishings create an overall sense of warmth and harmony to this Cape Cod bed and breakfast. Beautiful beaches, quaint shops, ferry shuttles and excellent restaurants, are only a short stroll from the inn.

Falmouth is a delightful New England Massachusetts village on Upper Cape Cod. Our romantic bed and breakfast is in the Historic District, a quiet residential area of tree lined streets, picket fences, colorful gardens, and elegant homes. All of our charming bedchambers feature sumptuous sheets, televisions, telephones, alarm clock radios, hair dryers, irons, ironing boards, luggage racks, ceiling fans, ice buckets, bottled water, air conditioning and WiFi (excluding the cottage). Afternoon tea and refreshments are served daily in the parlor. We also have bicycles available for guest’s use, on a first-come, first serve basis (May – October only).
