We've been returning to the Captain Farris House for 8 years now for our annual trip to the Cape. Beautiful accommodations, amazing breakfasts and the staff is awesome! We'll keep coming back as long as it stays open!

This was our third visit to this beautiful inn and we had a lovely time again! It's charming and there is a lot of attention to detail. The owner, Nancy, is lovely and very helpful. Luke, one of the innkeepers, was personable and was very informative about the happenings on the Cape. We stayed in the Irma Farris Suite and... More

We had a wonderful stay at Captain Farris ! Its a beautiful old building and the hosts are charming. Its situated near the Bass River inlet and the scenery is just spectacular ! Definitely worth visiting (although we probably should have gone a week or so earlier as a lot of the restaurants/shops had closed for the season and we... More

Probably the best bed and breakfast ever. Great inn keepers. Breakfast each morning was complimented with fresh fruit and very tasty. It was enough that we were not hungry until dinner. Appreciated that it was not too early, 830a was perfect. Location was perfect on the Cape because we were within an hour's drive to other areas of interest. Only... More

We spent 3 nights here in mid-June and enjoyed our stay. The inn and its grounds are lovely. We stayed in Bray's Retreat and the bed was so comfortable. The sheets were luxurious. The room was spotless. The room is right off the breakfast area so I would guess that it is not the place to stay if you want... More

The breakfast service and food was excellent. The room was comfortable, but could have used more light. The location was convenient to the beach. The hospitality of Luke and Cheryl helped make our stay so enjoyable.

Captain Farris Inn is everything you could want in a B&B and a whole lot more. The breakfasts are fantastic. We were truly amazed at the care and thought that went into each one. The inn itself is beautifully furnished. We stayed in Bray's which is very spacious. The bed is extremely comfortable and the double jacuzzi is the icing... More

Where are the good old days when "captain" Nancy ran this place ? The new inn keeper Sheryl never introduced herself . The breakfast once a treat was awful. The muffins 4 on 4 days were too hot and untasteful. The fritata, supposedly to be a kind of an omelette was filled with rubber cheese and the fruit was swimming... More

Thank you for your kind words. We are glad you enjoyed our 24 hour coffee/tea and soda as well as all our amenities.
