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

This has been the second time I have been to this place. Also found this Gem by accident and this is the only place I will stay on the Cape.The views from this place can't be beat, the rooms are clean and romantic. I can not say enough good things about this place!

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. Professional, Clean, and Charming settings,are a just a few of the superlatives one finds themselves being immersed in. One of the few times we are... More

Being our first visit to Cape Cod we had no idea what to expect. The first thing I did right was calling to talk to Brent. He was very helpful with info about renting a car and getting around. The second right thing was staying at the The Ruddy Turnstone. If you want to stay someplace a little different than... More

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. Sometimes the information that you get on the internet is not quite what it seems. I'm glad that you called with your questions and potential plans before making any specific arrangements, much of your trip... More

Sometimes you have guests that you don't want to leave, you both were an example of those guests.

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

We stayed at three different inns over the course of 10 days on Cape Cod. This one is just different and that is why we liked it best! It is perhaps the best kept secret on Cape Cod and it deserves to be booked all year around but it is not. The value is incredible for this pricey area! We... More

I'm so glad that you enjoyed your stay! We have tried to keep The Suite in the tradition of "Old Cape Cod" because that's just what it is. Being the original 1803 Cape style home our choice of an antique 10x18 oriental rug, antique four posted bed and traditional artwork keeps the theme and we are happy that you recognized... More

My husband and I stayed at the Ruddy Turnstone for 4 nights in mid July. The inn is on 6A but set well back from the street, which is quiet at night. We stayed in the Bay Room, which was very spacious and comfortable (great bed) and had a beautiful view far out to the bay. We loved the small... More
