"Named Most Charming Small town B&B in Massachusetts by Reader's Digest"
Stay on Cape Cod & enjoy a farm to breakfast table experience
Our lovingly updated 1846 Victorian Bed & Breakfast is located on a quiet street in Harwich, a quintessential Massachusetts fishing town. The setting is the Historic Center of Harwich near Harwich Port, the beach and fresh water ponds, very close to the Cape Cod rail trail (bike path), cranberry bogs and within a quick drive to a wide variety of restaurants. The surrounding towns of Chatham, Brewster and Dennis are a short drive from the B&B making our location an ideal location to enjoy all of the many things to do while visiting the Cape.
Each welcoming guest room offers queen sized beds and includes cable HDTVs with media streaming, free WiFi, air conditioning, housekeeping & parking. Every breakfast served demonstrates a combination of professional restaurant cooking and the amazing flavors of locally grown real foods. There is no other B&B in the area where you will be served breakfast by a working professional chef.
We (Lori & Tim) along with our dog Tye live on premises and are the Innkeepers & your hosts. We are true Cape Cod locals (Lori was born & raised in Brewster) and are always happy to share tips & ideas of how to best explore the Cape.
All rates include a full chef's breakfast and no taxes are added to your total. Our charming B&B is top rated on Tripadvisor for our central location, comfortable & inviting rooms and one of the best gourmet breakfast served in the area.
Notes from the Innkeepers
What does it mean to stay local when you are on vacation?
Well, it probably means different things to different people. For us, it means staying with people who actually live in the area, and in our case one of whom was born and raised on Cape Cod. Staying at a small property, like ours, guarantees (if you want) direct contact with us, the people who know the Cape very well. Let us know what you enjoy doing, seeing, eating or what you are shopping for and we are happy to point you in the right direction. We are always happy to share our recommendations based on our direct experience and stories from others.
Cape Cod is known for the beaches. We often offer tips about the different beaches to choose from. Choices include the warmest, or coldest swimming water, waves for body surfing, walking for miles or the amazing option of tidal flats at low tide on Cape Cod Bay. We are happy to give tips on parking costs and free beaches. It’s possible, even in the height of the Summer, to find a quiet beach if you receive tips from a local. We can suggest the best spots to see seals, where Great White Sharks have been spotted, and the best whale watching tour.
Many people don’t realize the Cape has many rivers that are also beautiful & fun to explore in a canoe, kayak or paddle board, or simply by walking the nature trails. There are also numerous conservation areas with walking trails in every town. You can safely bike ride for miles on the bike path through the woods, past fresh water ponds and cranberry bogs. We are happy to offer advise on where to ride depending on what you’d like to see.
The Cape offers numerous local boutique stores selling everything from high end to very reasonably priced collectibles, unique trinkets, distinctive clothing, books, amazing pottery and one of a kind art.
And finally, the restaurants. There are so many. Tell us what you like and we will point you in the right direction. The area offers many options from seafood shacks to high end tasting menu restaurants and everything in between. If you, like many, are on a lobster or oyster quest we are happy to make recommendations. We will tell you about the local seasonal catch (having a working Chef as Innkeeper helps us “be in the know”). If, like some, you don’t prefer seafood there are options for that as well.
AND because our property is small and thus intimate we hear about our guest’s discoveries while they share their past days adventures with us and other guests during breakfast. You may be lucky enough to be at the table with a “well seasoned” Cape Cod visitor who also has many favorite areas and restaurants to share with other guests.
This, in a nutshell, is what staying in a small, locally owned property like ours offers.
