Our trip was very quick at the ships knees. We stayed there after our wedding. We had a late check in so no one was there but they made sure we were still welcome and the process was easy. The room was very comfortable and very clean. The next morning we woke up to have brunch. It was an amazing... More

Great care was given to help us have a comfortable stay. Breakfast was beautiful and tasty each morning. The Inn is a short walk to beautiful Nauset beach and central to explore the whole Cape. I'll be back.

This is a beautiful spot in a perfect location. Our room was very comfortable, the owners were very helpful and friendly and provided us with a delicious breakfast. We stayed on a quiet Monday night and had the fire pit and surrounding garden all to ourselves, sipping wine and watching the fire..delightful. I highly recommend the Ship's Knees Inn.

Ship's Knees Inn is a perfectly sweet bed and breakfast just minutes from one of the best beaches on mid Cape Cod. The property is immaculate, inside and out, with lovely patio and gorgeous flowering trees and perennials. Although the guest rooms are a bit "cozy" (small--ish) they are very well appointed, with extremely comfortable beds, lots of down pillows,... More

My wife and I and my mother in law just returned from a relaxing and pleasant stay at the Ship's Knees Inn. Peter and Denise are fabulous Innkeepers and the Inn is charming and tastefully decorated. We have stayed at the Inn many times and every time we go back some new improvements are made. Denise does a fantastic breakfast... More

Our second stay at the Ships Knees Inn was as delightful as our first a year ago. Denise and Peter are welcoming and very helpful hosts who know the mid Cape well and can send you in a myriad of directions on your best pursuits. We enjoyed great foods, fun biking ventures, and ocean walks. While we are reluctant to... More

Great time celebrating a milestone birthday. Love the quiet here and location of the Ships Knees Inn. Denise and Peter are great hosts. Feels like home, make a tea or coffee at your convenience and the continental breakfast is much more than they typical cereal and packaged items at other run of the mill places. We had a suite, very... More

Our group of 10 ladies stayed for the weekend in late March and we had a blast. Peter and Denise were so accommodating. Breakfast was delicious, especially the Swedish Cream topped with berry sauce. The Inn is beautiful and a short walk to the beach. Also, there are some great little shops and restaurants not to far from the Inn.I... More

We stayed at the Ship's knees for a couple of nights in October and it was our first time on the cape (we live in England). We had a very friendly welcome and were shown to our room and recommended local attractions and hotels. Our room was small but clean and had everything you needed. We sat outside in the... More
