There is a lot of American history reflected in the little village of Hyannis Port on Cape Cod. Those over 50 years old are keenly aware of the impact the Kennedy family has on our lives. It lives on in this tiny village on the southern facing stretch of land facing the Atlantic. The Kennedy Compound ( a group of... More

This place is just great, It just keeps getting and better. The innkeeper Bill is a great wealth of information about trips around the Cape as well a a true gentleman. April who works at the inn and helps out at Happy Hour is a great asset to the inn. If you are looking for a nice place which is... More

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.

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

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.
