Orleans, Cape Cod – beaches, biking, and so much more

We are a small privately owned cozy Inn offering a very personalized concierge service. Whether it’s local restaurant bookings, day trips seal or whale watching, bike rentals, or theatre tickets (The Academy Playhouse is just a 10 minute walk from us), we’re here to ensure you have a wonderful stay in Orleans.

After breakfast, head for Nauset Beach, one of Cape Cod’s main attractions only 1.6 miles from the Inn – miles and miles of dunes and golden sand, look out for the seals.
