From the curb outside to the bar inside, this place was like no other. We arrived an hour before our reservation in order to absorb the atmosphere and sip a cocktail. Our bartender had prepared this wonderful concoction called "lotus flower" which was a delicious summer martini of mulled magic and . The chef prepared a special baked oyster for... More

What a wonderfully romantic inn! Stayed in the Painted Lady, right next door to the Belfry which is in a converted church; room #9 on the top floor is bright and inviting, complete with a wonderful jetted tub. We stayed two nights in this charming New England Inn in this perfect little New England town. As soon as we stepped... More

We enjoyed brunch today at the Belfry Inn. It was our first time in Sandwich, and we had seen a recommendation for the Painted Lady . When we arrived at the address there was a sign on the building for a wine bar- confusing! When we called the restaurant we were told to come next door to the Belfry Inn... More

We had our wedding, wedding dinner and wedding night at the Belfry last year and we are frequent dinner and lunch guests because Chris has worked magic with his renovation of this old Roman Catholic Church and grounds. He understands great food, great service and charming decor. We feel pampered and content every time we are there.

While the owner has worked this property for years it's now at it's top. Chris Wilson has started this some 19 years ago and is front and center with it's greatness. He had a problem with a Chef two years ago but has reclaimed his and the Belfry's Top spot. Just the best you will find here. Great service; Because... More

Looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion? The Belfry Inn is the place. Nestled in the village of Historic Sandwich, the Belfry Inn and Bistro offers delicious food in a lovely atmosphere. The menu reflects the season with locally grown ingredients. It is especially pretty this time of year as the flowers start to blossom and the grounds... More

This is a gem of a place. I was in town for business, off season, and was amazed at the quality of the accommodations and the delicious meal and wine selection. Inventive conversion of a church to an inn and restaurant , and centrally located to the lower Cape.

We were only there for a meal. Winter outing for my last dinner on the Cape and I always wanted to try this place. What a great atmosphere, lovely warm fire, beautiful arch ceilings, pleasant staff, and fantastic food. Wed nights they have wine tasting with some apps which sounds like a great way to break the week up. Such... More

My girlfriend and I were taking a couple day trip up to Massachusetts and wanted to stay somewhere that wasn't a traditional hotel. She suggested bed and breakfasts, and after a lot of digging through reviews online, we settled on the Belfry Inn. Before we arrived, she was notified that they upgraded us to a larger room, the Thursday Room... More

We arrived in Sandwich without a room so booked this whilst 10mins away and what a strike of luck! The converted church is a marvel and the owners have done a good job on the conversion. There is ample parking. Our room was quirky - as expected given its location within the church but was clean with all the amenities.... More
