We were delighted to find The Tern Inn. The rooms are lovely, the breakfast is perfect, and the owners are enchanting. The facilities are beautiful, clean and well-maintained. The new owners have created the perfect bed and breakfast experience. The beach is close but the inn is on a quiet street. We loved the relaxing feel of the inn and... More

We've been coming to The Tern Inn every summer now for 5 years and can't say enough good things about this special place. The new owners, Dan and Sue are terrific and as equally welcoming, attentive and accommodating as the past owners. Both the Inn and the cottages (where we stay) are charming and very well kept. Friends of ours... More

We enjoyed staying at Dan and Susan's inn. It's rare that you meet such amazing people and then with this kind of welcome. We had the best breakfast on our trip in the U.S. . Dan cooks in the kitchen and he is an awesome cook. The room was nice and clean. Only problem was the internet which didn't work... More

Walk or bike to the beach, enjoy a nice breakfast (included!), very clean rooms, a nice quiet location, convenient to restaurants, lots to do in the area, but also great for a day trip elsewhere on the Cape. Dan & Sue are the quintessential innkeepers, they could not be nicer or more attentive. We hope to visit again!

My family of 8 stayed in the duplex(both a and b) plus a room in the carriage house. The new owners where very helpful and made our stay very comfortable. They are making a lot of improvements on a wonderful Cape Cod/New England Inn. It was a perfect place to have a family gathering.

I met Sue and Dan at the desk at 10:00 PM after a long day for all of us. They explained that they had just purchased the inn three weeks ago, and I was amazed at the amount of energy they had -- and the effort they made to greet me. They have already made a number of 21st Century... More

I booked the Tern Inn for an overnight stay to attend an event in nearby Chatham. It was fantastic from start to finish. The owners, Dan and Sue, were warm and welcoming. My room was clean and cozy with all the modern amenities but, not lacking in Cape Cod charm. Breakfast is served in the beautiful, light filled dining room... More

This inn has new ownership and we were lucky to have been the new owners first guests. The room was small, but immaculately clean and well appointed. Breakfast was very generous and tasty. The new hosts, Dan and Sue are welcoming and friendly- I see a bright future under their management.

I stayed one night at the Tern Inn last week, and it was great. Welcoming owners, pretty and cozy room, just what I needed. Great breakfast (eggs, cereal, tea, English muffins, specialty breads) was a plus to get me on my way.

We stayed one night in a queen room. The room was beautifully decorated, clean, and cozy. We even had a small loveseat. The breakfast was good, eggs, muffins, oatmeal, cereal, fruit, and beverages. The owners were great and so welcoming, we felt like we were with friends. The area is wonderful, and the grounds of the inn are lovely. I... More
