I was coming up to visit my girlfriend and see her for the first time ever since we had met online and we are just so thankful to Bill and the staff for making our stay as great as it could be. Bill and the staff are very friendly and helpful and give suggestions on some of the things thay... 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. We also met his staff and they were very knowledgeable of... More

The owner is very helpful in telling about the area and is just a wealth of info. You actually fell like you are in your home, it is that great, The yard... More

Thanks Betsy, and Russ and Bob. You also were fun. But we of course like Bob, the pup, but didn't realize you had written a book about him till you told me in a note after you left. I ordered it from Amazon and will have it for you to sign when you are back. Also saw you have written... More

We spent 7 days there and Bill and the staff couldn't of been any nicer. Always asking what our plans were and how they could help. Great ideas and travel assistance with maps, handouts to be sure you didn't miss any of the great attractions. Wine night - what a great idea where you know you can get ideas for... More

Enjoyed the 3 of you as well and look forward to you coming back again and again. Just a quickie about the maps, touring guide sheets, dinner menus from restaurants we recommend and all. Like you, we get lots of folks that are having their first trip to Cape Cod or have been here in years. We really don't want... More

Innkeeper Bill and the ladies that work at the Inn go out of their way to make your stay feel as if you are at a Home away from home. Lovely to see pups and their people when on vacation. The food is unapologetically not gourmet, as Bill states, but it's just like being at a relative's for a weekend.... More

Thanks Nicole. Good revues like this are really a two-way street. People like you that enjoyed the place are the very people we are looking to get. We aren't formal and try to make your stay relaxing, casual and enjoyable. When you say it was casual and fun, BINGO, we say thanks for being the exact kind of guests we... More

We just returned from a 3 night stay at Simmons Homestead Inn. We had been looking for a dog friendly place to stay for a short relaxing getaway. We cannot say enough good things about this place. We were warmly greeted by Bill upon our arrival & throughout our trip he was wonderful giving us such great information about things... More

Lovely old Inn. Very central to all of the Cape. Our room was on the first floor and very cozy. The common areas were very comfortable, though a little worn. The wine hour was a good way to meet the other visitors and compare notes of our plans and restaurants for dinner. Dog friendly, in addition to being exceptionally people... More

The owner , Bill, is a character -- but not as warm and caring as the website makes out. If you want kitsch, and strange, and funky, and you don't mind a bit of seedy -- this is the place for you! His staff are caring and excellent people. Chemically enhanced breakfast is included. Love that there are no locks... More

Try to please everyone (and the dogs), but guess we can't please 'em all. Recent folks seem happy most of the time though. More

I'm surprised this got so many great reviews??? I stayed last year with my husband and will never return. First of all, we arrived and I thought the hotel had some quirkiness, it smelled of an old damp house. We get to our room, that was wide open, with no key and no way to lock it once we leave...?!?...

We enjoyed our stay at this Inn. I admit when we first walked in I was skeptical. It seemed very cluttered (and it is) but that is part of the charm. There are knickknacks every where and it was fun to look at the collected treasures. The Inn is in an old building. We stayed in the Pacific room and... More

It is fun to get people from far away and we try extra hard to make sure their trip out here was worth it. That's one of the fun parts of innkeeping. And good guests is another fun part. More
