Wouldn't think it would be able to get any better, but the grounds, and the Rooms look fantastic, the upkeep is always perfect, a little new paint in the main room and a bit of furniture configuration, make the Ruddy turnstone a fantastic getaway. Our hosts Brent and Abigail as always, delightful and available for any need that may arise.... More

We returned to this special hideaway only to find that it got even better! The plantings and backyard marsh setting with bountiful birds provided the much needed escape we craved and it was wonderful to see the friendly, hospitable, innkeepers once again!

I stumbled on The Ruddy Turnstone while searching the internet for a weekend getaway for my wife and I for our 15th anniversary. The Tripadvisor reviews, 24 of 24 results rating excellent, was a big factor in researching the Turnstone further. Leaving our 3 boys for the weekend, we were looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway. I exchanged a... More

Since we live in Colorado and are mountain people by inclination, we do not get to the East Coast that often. The Ruddy Turnstone Inn could make us change our minds. This was a restful and refreshing place to stay. Our room, with its own private entrance and deck, was spacious and well-equipped. It is centrally located on the Cape... More

After finding this Gem by accident, it has now become the only place to stay on the Cape, the central location, Brent and Abigail, and just the calming atmosphere of being away from hectic lives.

Our goal is a peaceful and private experience, but sometimes guests need some advice from the locals and I am more than happy to help.

We stayed here for 2 nights while we explored all around the cape and it proved to be a great central location away from all of the touristy stuff. The proprietors, Brent & Abigail live & work on the premises, do all the work themselves, and couldn't have been nicer. The property itself is just stunning. The landscaping is beautiful... More
