“Room For Improvement”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

This could be a great Inn. Breakfast delicious, rooms clean. Good location with privacy from road. Biggest problem is innkeepers, they don't seem to like their job. They don't know who the guests are, Melissa seems overworked and even though her words are polite, she makes you feel like you're imposing. We both felt this as soon as we arrived and it didn't change over the few days we were there. Also a/c noisy and bed sheet corner constantly come off of bed. These little touches are what separates the great BandBs from the so so. So some very good, some annoying aspects.

If they could learn to be more gracious and welcoming, and do a little fix-up, they could have a winning property.

My wife and I spent a few days at the Penny House and it was like being in your own vacation home with staff of servants. It was so relaxing and comfortable. the grounds and rooms are meticulously kept and Melissa and her staff are there to serve you. The breakfast was amazing! I will return to the Penny House next summer. Cant wait!

Room Tip: Get "Pennies from Heaven", it has a balcony over the pool!

Melissa and her crew made us feel so welcome and cared for. The breakfasts were works of art as well as nutritious. She upgraded our room without our asking. Very lovely and gracious setting, close to all the activities we love on the cape.

This was our very first Bed and Breakfast and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The food was terrific and the rooms clean and beautifully decorated. We loved the convenient location to the bike paths, Provincetown, and the ocean. We did not take advantage of their Day Spa, as we didn't have time with all of the other activities. You won't be disappointed in this B & B. My husband and I will definitely be back and will also share this little secret with friends looking for a nearby oasis.

Room Tip: No fitness center, but conveniently located next to the bike path and beach.

I never imagined that my booking the Penny House would make me a convert to this type of accommodations and give me an incredible escape. Penny House is pretty and comfortable with a warm, friendly, and helpful staff lef by Melissa and the best 3 course, breakfasts I've ever had. Each breakfast began with an artfully carved exotic fruit plate followed by yogurt with homemade granola and blueberries and ended with scrambled eggs, bacon, and either pancakes, waffles or french toast. Their pumkin pancakes with chocolate shavings were outstanding. I indulged in their spa's 90 minute hot rock massage and found it to be one of the best I'd ever had. The Inn also has a salt water pool. It is conveniently located on 6 but set behind humongous hedges giving it privacy and quiet. You can easily reach Ptown or Chatham or the Orleans.Brewster area. I can;t wait to return.

Room Tip: The Penny Social was close to the lobby and great room but quiet and only had a few steps to reach i...

My husband and I were fortunate to spend the first few days of summer at The Penny House Inn & Day Spa. The Eastham/Wellfleet area has always been our favorite part of the Cape and this was actually the first time we stayed at a B & B.
We stayed in one of the King Suites with a fantastic comfortable bed, great AC, electric fire place, whirlpool tub in suite, new carpeting, TV and seperate shower/bath. Breakfast was each morning was served in the a lovely, old world style quaint dining room. Definately not your average B & B with the self-serve toast and yogurt bar. Melissa, (on of the owners) is a fantstic cook and Cindy serves the breakfast to the guests with a warm smile! The breakfast really is amazing, don't sleep late! The prestine salt water pool is amazing. Many thanks to Nino who maintains that little piece of paradise with perfection. Don't forget to check out his amazing art in the Lobby, he is truly talented. Melissa, Leonard and Nino made us feel so at home. My husband and I are hoping to get back in the fall for another visit. We travel alot and I have to say, the fact that these owners had just moved in and purchased this property ONE WEEK before was truly amazing. Never would anyone have noticed. We look forward to seeing how far they come with this property and hope to watch it grow. PS....this Inn is close to Marconi Beach (the best!), Arnolds Seafood (wonderful), Wellfleet Cinema and downtown Wellfleet which is a fun place to walk around if you don't go to P-Town. Thanks again to everyone there!
