I think this might be our 8th year staying at the tern inn. Joan and Dave have always been great and the Seagull cottage is perfect for the 6 of us. Had another great week, will book again for next year shortly. We have 3 small ones and a teenager, they love it here. We love the fact that we... More

My husband and I wanted to get to Cape Cod for a mini vacation before the end of summer, and we waited until the weather forecast was for a stretch of perfect days. We found trying to get a place for three nights starting on a Saturday to be a challenge, but I remembered we rented a house near the... More

My co-worker was having her wedding at the Wychmere Beach Club (6 minute drive away) and we need a place to (affordably) crash for the night. Many places would not allow us the one night stay, but when I called the Tern Inn (instead of booking online) they were very accommodating.The Tern Inn is very easy to find and just... More

My family and I stayed at Tern Inn during the Summer of 2006, 2008, and 2011. Joan and Dave, the innkeepers, were awesome and helped us with all the details of where to travel. We stayed at the Sea Gull, the Dollhouse, and Gazebo Cottages, therefore, we had a different feel each time we visited. We always came in August... More

We had a great one week stay at the Tern Inn. Joan and Dave are impeccable hosts, you are treated like family and they are quick to answer any concerns or questions, always with a sense of humour! My 5yr old son loved the pool as much as the beach, and played with the other young children staying there; it... More

The innkeepers. Joan and Dave, could not have been more accommodating and helpful with regard to suggesting day trips, routes, and restaurants. Our room was on the upper floor of the Carriage House and, while the decor was a little outdated, it was spotless and very comfortable. Our only suggestion would be to find a way to deflect the air... More

We just returned from a fabulous stay at The Tern Inn! We were so lucky to have found this gem as it was a very clean and pleasant place to stay during our time in Cape Cod. The owners, Joan and Dave couldn't be nicer as they welcomed us with open arms and provided us with many helpful travel tips/sights... More

My family (wife and 4 kids) just returned from a week stay at the tern inn. We rented one of the cottages which worked out perfect for the 6 of us. The grounds are perfect for a family like ours, close to everything, quiet and very safe. The innkeepers are and have always been accommodating and treat us like family.... More

The Tern Inn was very clean and updated. The room we had was not as large as some of the chain hotels, but for 2 people was fine. We were met by a very friendly Inn keeper Dave, who gave us a couple good recommendations for dinner (which made us feel young since we were the only ones under 70... More
