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. Bike along the many trails that criss-cross the Cape, through forests, over sand dunes or by glacial ponds. Explore the art galleries, craft and antique stores in Orleans, along Route 6A, Old King’s Highway or in neighboring towns.
