I had a great visit to New England and Bill made it so much easier. I had to be in so many places while I was there and he planned my days for me so that I could make it everywhere on time. I even had time to go to the amazing restaurants he recommended and I was still able... More

Jenn, I had about as much fun as you did. Helping you plan out the 3 days of trips and seeing how well you did the following morning at breakfast was enjoyable. But ..... next time bring your husband and enjoy the Cape as much as you enjoyed the research this trip. Thanks again, Bill More

We had a great time at Simmons Homestead Inn last August! We stayed at the Inn for a week while relaxing and exploring Cape Cod, following much of Bill's excellent advice (in person and from his information handouts). As many have said, the whole place--with all its details--is very unique! (We have a red car, so we may be a... More

Always enjoy folks from 'Mid Canada' (and their dogs of course). When I fist started the Inn some 27 years ago the Canadian dollar was and had always been worth $1.10 to ours. Then it dropped to about half and I really missed you 'northerners.' Now it's good to have you back. And ..... keep coming back! Thanks, Bill More

Bill was a great host and his information sheets on sightseeing was worth the rate alone. Very enjoyable Breakfast and afternoon wine. Can't wait to return. Great location for exploring the Cape. Room was very comfortable and quiet.

My husband and I (and our 70 lb lab) enjoyed a lovely three day stay with Bill at the Simmons Homestead in October. The Inn was comfortable and quiet with all the amenities we needed. Bill and his staff are most gracious and had spot-on recommendations for the best activities, beaches, and restaurants in the area. We loved that we... More

The best part of the Inn is Bill. His passion is to make sure you see the best of his beloved Cape. This includes detailed info on where to go, eat, which tour guides to use, galleries and parks to see. Every recommendation was a home run! For three days we followed his advice to a tee and were never... More

My husband and I were privileged to meet, stay, visit, and learn about the "cape" from Mr Bill as we called him. Our friends also stayed the weekend here and the 4 of us loved the charm of truly feeling welcomed every time we returned from a cape adventure.

You know, friends is what it is all about. You traveled with friends, stayed here and met new friends and just felt comfortable. That's the way we want it too. We've had several couples meet, go out to dinner and all. Then write to each other and come back again even if they are from different parts of the Country.... More
