By the Sea Guest B&B typifies the "real" Cape Cod. Warm and friendly, quaint, clean and unassuming. Not to mention a private beach that is manicured daily. Breakfast, on the enclosed porch mere steps from the ocean, leads one into the magic of a Cape Cod day. You can find fancier, more expensive places to stay; however, By The Sea... More

A great place to stay. One of the only inns that accommodated is for one night. Very reasonably priced. The rooms and inn were spotless. We were 6 of us and each had a one bedroom suite. Upon arriving in our room there was a plate of sweets ( carrot cake, brownies, cookies, candy and fruit) in each suite. Delicious.... More

We stayed here in June 2015. Cannot praise the little place enough. The rooms were spotlessly clean. The breakfast was delicious with so much food to eat. It is situated on little private beach. Sun beds, towels and coffee were supplied free of charge. Would definitely recommend this place.

This place is nice but a bit old-fashioned and everywhere, there are little stickers telling you what to do, when to lock the door etc.etc. A bit strange. Room was small but ok with nice view of the beach which is literally steps away. Breakfast is served family style at a big table and within less than 2 minutes, I... More

My family and I had a very nice stay here. The location is great and the beach is beautiful and easy to use. They provide chairs, umbrellas, towels, and toys etc. Breakfast is awesome! They make something different each morning for the hot breakfast and always offer fruit, breads, granola, yogurt and drinks. Breakfast patio was lovely. Staff is incredibly... More

This is the 13th time we have visited By the Sea. Nothing has changed, still as great as ever, Tom makes a great breakfast that lasts all day. Everyone is friendly and we enjoyed sitting by the fire at night. Leave a window open at night to listen to the waves. By the Sea is a great location and is... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay here. Extremely helpful with registration process and the staff were efficient and bright and cheery. Breakfast was comprehensive and delicious. We stayed in room 310 on level two, steep climb up the stairs with heavy cases but worth the effort. Well done to all

By the Sea was a cozy, clean and comfortable place to spend a few days. The rooms were clean and each has a unique decor. Perhaps the best part of the experience was waiting to see what Chef Tom made for us to enjoy each morning. The staff at By the Sea were so accommodating. A huge plus is that... More

By The Sea has been run by the same family for over 40 years and it shows by how they treat their guests - like friends and family. We stayed 3 nights and after the first morning staff remember my dairy allergy at breakfast the following days. That really made an impression of how much they care and pay attention.... More

I had booked this place sight unseen and was hoping it would be okay. It was more than okay; it was fabulous! I had two rooms; one with a king bed for us and the other for my daughters with a queen and a twin. Perfect! Rooms were lovely, quiet, a little small but you don't spend any time in... More
