“Really comfortable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2013

We were putting our boat in the water for the first time, so our stress level was high, but Richard and JoAnne made us feel right at home. The lodgings were clean, quiet, bright and newly renovated and the breakfast was wonderful on both our days. We will definitely return in the future for a nice holiday only 90 miles from our home.

Our second visit to the Parsonage Inn several weeks ago proved to be just as wonderful as our first visit two years ago. The new owners, Jo and Richard are just as charming, hospitable and accommodating as the former owners, Liz and Ian. Our newly-renovated room and bathroom were delightful and the breakfasts were ample and delicious. We will be back!

Room Tip: We like the Mayberley room on the first floor.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Parsonage. The location was great, ....near Nauset Beach, Orleans shopping, the Monomoy Theatre, and our favorite restaurants. Jo-Anne an Richard were welcoming, gracious hosts, and breakfasts on the patio were both delicious and different. We loved our spacious, newly renovated room as well as the shady yard.
The history of the Parsonage was fascinating. The Inn
successfully mixes an appreciation of the past with fresh, up-dated decor and amenities.

My Fiance and I booked here at the last minute as part of an overflowing family reunion. The new owners could not be more friendly, and they have done an amazing job renovating the property. The beds are fantastic and the food they make in the morning is some of the best breakfast fare I have had on the cape. You would never regret staying here.

Room Tip: If you are looking for a nice Queen room, try "The Haven"!

Joanne and Richard (the new owners) have done a beautiful job restoring this historic B&B. the rooms are truly beautiful and a pleasure to stay in (we stayed in ladyewood with a nice kingsize bed) With beautiful new bathrooms. The breakfast we had was delicious and probably better than at any B&B I've ever stayed at. The place had anything you could possibly need, (fridge, coffee machine, internet etc). The location is great, really close walking distance to the beach and walking distance to shops and very good restaurants and a great bar (Joe's beach road bar and grille). East Orleans is a beautiful Cape Cod town. Also, Joanne and Richard are just about the friendliest most accommodating people you could ever hope to stay with. My wife and I just had a really great time. HIGHLY recommended.

Charming Inn run by an equally charming English couple Richard and Jo Hoad who are the very recent new owners of The Parsonage Inn. Very comfy rooms, and warm and welcoming common rooms. Delightful though too short a stay, will be back soon I hope. Walking distance to beach, restaurants and wonderful market store.
Highly recommended.

Lovely quaint B&B with Ian and Liz as excellent hosts.
Oak room was very comfortable providing me with a good nights rest.
Would like to have more bacon and eggs for breakfast.
A little pricey to be honest but. Did enjoy my stay very much and would recommend.
