"Lodging with a European Touch"

Description | Photo Gallery 


You have found the perfect Bed and Breakfast for your visit to the Cape. Our Inn is very conveniently located in the middle between the villages of Chatham and Orleans and overlooks the enchanting Pleasant Bay. From here you can explore the Cape without having to change your B&B: you unpack and pack only once.

The main house of the Inn has a history dating back to 1798. The Cape Cod Times described the property as a possible part of the "Underground Railroad." A trap door in the foyer leads to a small space that might have been used as a hiding place during that time. The Inn sits above Pleasant Bay, has its own beach and a dock with moorings.

Accommodations: We have 9 bedrooms, all with private baths. Some have bay view, others overlook the gardens. You can choose between the Main House, the Paddock Rooms or our rustic Carriage House that has two bedrooms. The Inn can boast of its commanding view of Pleasant Bay, and many of the rooms let the guests enjoy this breathtaking sight. Early risers can watch the sunrise appear over the Bay, a truly colorful experience. The moon rise being reflected on the Bay can be almost as spectacular. We also have our own small sandy/pebbly beach and a dock for swimming, fishing and boating (moorings are available). The Bay definitely lives up to its name: Pleasant Bay, ideal for sailing, kayaking, swimming or strolling along the water when the tide is out. If you come in the fall, you can witness the harvest of the cranberries on the bog right next door.

Dining: A European Continental Breakfast is served to our guests either on a patio overlooking wonderful Pleasant Bay or our lovely gardens. A 5PM “Sherry Hour” in our lounge is included as well.

Meeting Facilities: The Inn is ideal for small exclusive meetings.

Surrounding area: Located on the narrowest part of the Cape, we have easy access to several beaches on the Atlantic and the Cape Cod Bay side. You can take short boat trip to the highly acclaimed, pristine South Beach and to Monomoy Island where you can fish, swim and observe the shore birds. In season, you can take a boat to watch the seals and whales at play. We are also fortunate to be close to several challenging private and public golf courses, many nature walks and bicycle trails. The shops and restaurants in the villages of Orleans, Brewster and Chatham are only minutes away.
