“Beautiful house with perfect hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2010

Coming directly from Boston we spent two lovely guest-nights in the cozy Captain Kelly room in this cute house fixed up with notable antiques and many decorator touches. I loved to play the grand piano in the living room.
Tom and Ric are caring landlords, preparing tasty breakfasts, varied and served every day in the bright and sunny winter garden.
We jogged every morning to the public beach on a reasonable quiet road and we got helpful advice for a day trip to Provincetown / Cape Cod.
Thank you dear Tom and Ric for your cordial hospitality!

The CKD House is simply beyond compare, unparalleled, matchless, peerless, unmatched, without parallel, beyond comparison, second to none, in a class of its/one's own, unequaled, unrivaled, inimitable, nonpareil, par excellence; transcendent, superlative, surpassing, unsurpassed, unsurpassable, supreme, top, best, outstanding, consummate, singular, unique, rare, perfect; informal one-in-a-million; formal unexampled. Well, you get the idea. Tom and Rick are taking their venture very seriously and work hard to achieve the highest standard. We have B&B experience across the US and Europe over the last 20 years and CDK earns top spot. Enough said. I have never run across a place with higher ratings online and they earn this one scone at a time! Bravo.

My wife and I recently spent three days with Tom and Rick at the Captain David Kelley House. It was a wonderful time. The Inn is lovely, the guys do a terrific job with all the little touches everywhere (they even had the Italian and German flags flying to welcome guests from those countries!), and the morning breakfasts are just exquisite. The location is central and convenient, but away from the pure tourist crowds. Tom and Rick also seem to learn something new in talking with each guest that they use to make future stays even better. Best of luck to them going forward. We will be back.

Rick and Tom are excellent hosts. They make their guests sooooooo welcome. Their breakfasts are delicious and the B & B is lovely. My husband and I spent 7 nights there and did not want to leave. I forgot to write in the Guest Book that one of our highlights was when Rick played the piano for us. The scone competition continues. Rick's scones are delicious but I hope Tom now has "the edge" with his new cutters. We will be back and would recommend this B & B to anyone looking for a holiday at Cape Cod.

This wasn't just a two night stay--this was an experience! Very beautifully decorated common areas and rooms. Rick and Tom are super hosts who have thought of everything, right down to flying the flag of the guest's home nation. And I can't stop talking about the banana bread!

My wife and I just celebrated our 7 year anniversary at the Captain David Kelley house. We stayed in the Captain Kelley room When we walked in Rick and Tom greeted us and each made the whole stay truly exceptional. We enjoyed the private bath, nighttime turn-down service with gourmet chocolates included. The room had a beautiful 4 post bed a faux fireplace, TV with Cable, Wifi. We enjoyed early evening drinks on the porch and the entire property was meticulously maintained. On Saturday night our hosts added fresh roses and a nice bottle of sparkling wine to the room during the turn-down.

The Breakfast served were top notch. Home-made Scones, Fresh Fruit bowl, Blueberry waffles, and eggs benedict were gourmet good. If you are looking for a romantic get-away on the cape at a B & B that within walking distance of the beach, this is your place. Excellent service, atmosphere, hospitality and attention to detail are staples of CDK House of Centerville.

After staying in many B&Bs around the country the CDK House was absolutely the very best. The furnishings are beautiful, the hospitality as warm as sunshine and the breakfasts were incredibly sinful! The owners can't do enough for you and the town is quaint with an easy drive to most of Cape Cod. I'd recommend this place even if it's out of your way. You won't regret it
