I was not familiar with the inn at all. My daughter took me. The ambiance was very pleasant. An old Cape village with tall trees and old homes. The menu was intriguing with unusual descriptions. The selection was varied and prices reasonable. When the food came, I was really surprised. Nothing reminiscent of the typical New England fare. And all... More

DINING: The tavern was great for lunch and the dining area was a perfect set-up for dinner and breakfast. The food was delicious in both the tavern and the restaurant. The restaurant had flower plants all over and a nice waterfall backdrop from the outside. Very romantic and relaxing.

This old, historic combination dinning/lodging establishment is one of the top notch places to visit on Cape Cod. If not for an overnight stay then at least a stop-in for either a casual meal in their rustic tavern/restaurant or enjoy exquisite, fine dinning in the glass bordered Conservatory with outside garden views. The accommodations and service at this inn are... More
