Life at ‘By the Sea’
Let me very quickly tell you a little about ourselves. We are one of the few Bed & Breakfast Inns on Cape Cod that have their very own private beach. Most of our rooms are oceanfront or have a view of the ocean. All our rates include a full breakfast, which is served on our glass / screen enclosed veranda overlooking Nantucket Sound. After breakfast, a walk awaits you just a few steps down onto our sandy, private beach. In addition, there is
an open porch where one can sit on our wicker chairs where the sea salt air breezes makes you feel alive, again.
There is also an oversized living room where you can while away your time in front of our Victorian fireplace or watch television on our large surround sound TV, put puzzles together, or just enjoy conversing with interesting travelers from all over the world. Also, here there is also an area where you can just relax with a wide choice of interesting and variety of books, magazines or games, and for the musically inclined, a piano to play your favorite tune.
In addition, for those who get the munchies, there is always fresh fruit, homemade cookies and cakes, hot and cold beverages available throughout the day and evening.
All our rooms have their own private imported ceramic tiled bathrooms. All the rooms have air conditioning, paddle fans, Direct HDTV with HBO. The rooms are decorated with sheer white Priscilla curtains, white woven cotton bedspreads, colorful quilts and pillows. We are not antiquish or elegant, but very clean, comfortable, homey, relaxing, warm, friendly and convenient!
I can go on and on. There are beautiful Houses of Worship, restaurants for exquisite dining, museums brimming with fine art, folk and sea lore, quaint antique shops, splendid golf courses, adventurous bike trails, tennis courts and even bocce courts, all just minutes away. There are wonderful plays, music in the parks, concerts with re-known performers, symphony orchestra concerts, and even an opera house.
And what have we to offer? In addition to the warm white sand of our beautiful private beach, we have comfortable rooms with breathtaking views and continuous salt air breezes. And, of course, we start your day with our rich, hardy coffee or specialty teas, juice, fresh fruit, cereals, fresh baked rolls, a variety of luscious warmed pastries, a hearty Gourmet Breakfast and more.
We love to laugh, smile, and joke with our guests from near and afar, along with wonderful conversations, exchanges of philosophy, histories of life, country, backgrounds, and more. As a result, many long lasting friendships have developed here with various guests from all over the world
