My daughter & now son-in-law planned a wedding on the Cape & recommended the Tern Inn. We booked the entire inn with wedding guests from all over the U.S. All raved about the experience. Dan & Sue are the consummate hosts. Any need was graciously met in short order. The breakfasts were varied and scrumptious. They accommodated those with special... More

Just a quick one night stay booked only 1 day in advance. We were lucky they had a room to accommodate our family of 4. Friendly service was provided from reservation through checkout. We stayed in Room #8 - room was spacious, clean, and nicely decorated. This room had 2 Queen beds that were very comfortable and AC worked great... More

The Tern Inn is a great place to stay on the Cape. Peaceful, clean, relaxed and reasonably priced. Dan and Sue, the owners, are great! They were very welcoming, and both really took an interest in ensuring everything was as it should be. My company has an event in Harwich each year, so I'll stay there again for sure.

Overall, a great place to stay. The breakfast was wonderful. The only criticism is that our bed was too small and the air conditioning unit too loud. We understand that the AC is going to be upgraded.

Hi, With friends, we rented several rooms for a long weekend at The Tern Inn. The new Inn Keepers, Susan and Dan, are fantastic, have definitely found their niche! The breakfast is wonderful too! They have a beautiful breakfast space with they generously left open for our group throughout the day and evening. The courtyard is also a lovely space... More

Wonderful place...Hosts Dan and Sue are awesome and we really enjoyed our stay. We had 2 rooms in the main house for a family getaway that had private entrances and were very clean and comfortable!! The breakfast that is included in the room rate was delicious!! I highly recommend The Tern Inn..we will be back!

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!
