My husband stayed here during July 4th this year. It is a very cozy house, the host are super nice. They offer delicious breakfast, and if you a dog lover, they have 6 cute dogs at home. Location is pretty convenient too!

we live 30 minutes south of Boston on the south shore of Massachusetts. We have been vacationing in dennisport since we were kids.. I.e 1970's yup we are not kids. We never came upon the Joy Inn but we're down the cape this spring for the Yarmouth road race ( neighboring town) and gave Joy Inn a shot. Super friendly... More

Peter and Barbara were wonderful hosts at this old style bed and breakfast, nothing was too much trouble and we learnt about the area. The rooms are in a relocated captains house, with lots of charm and quirks. Breakfast was a treat each day, the facilities were terrific (including a spa and sitting room) and we enjoyed the nearby restaurants... More

We stayed at the Joy House for 6 nights in mid July. The inn is an old sea captain's home with lots of character. Our room was the Shaker Room upstairs, which requires deftness on the very steep stairs. The room was lovely, but as with the whole house, it needed a good spring cleaning. The breakfasts included fresh fruit... More

I stayed at Joy House the first weekend in June and it was a delight. It's located in Dennis Port right in the middle of Cap Cod...great for sightseeing. It's a 230 year old inn, filled with history. The owners Peter and Barbara are great innkeepers making their guests feel at home away from home. There are three guests rooms.... More

My wife and I stayed two nights at the Joy House last week and were VERY disappointed. The house was quite dirty (scum in the sink and shower!) and nothing like the pictures. The breakfast was terrible too. We could only stomach a couple of bites. It's a real shame because the owner was extremely nice and the house seemed... More

This is a true vintage setting, and the host Peter can tell you the story behind it. Morning call with the Rachmaninov Piano Concerto #2 in full power was a classic. For the two rooms upstairs, you need to be physically capable to climb the steep stairs. The beagles are the sweet spots of our stay. They are lovely and... More

I stayed at the Joy House for a week of R&R. It was the best "unwinding" vacation I can imagine. Barbara and Peter welcomed me like family with a chat about my interests and connections to all that I wanted to do (and encouragement to unwind) on Cape Cod. They have many little "extras" (snacks, local books and movies, a... More

The Joy House is truly an escape from reality. I have been there on several occasion and the friendly, joyful and warm in-keepers never disappoint. The Joy House is a great place to stay whether you are with that special someone or with a family. It is extremely clean and comfortable. The breakfast in the morning is amazing and I... More
