“beautiful inn with nice staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We stayed overnight at the Penny House inn last weekend. The house is lovely and and the innkeeper (Cindy) is very friendly. Our room was a bit on the small side was but was kept clean. The positives include nice breakfast (on the morning we were there, this included fresh fruit plate, yogurt/granola, and blueberry waffles with eggs and bacon), wi-fi availability, dvds available for borrowing, and a a little area with some refreshments (cookies, water, tea, port). The negatives were that our room was warm and muggy despite us cranking up the a/c (the room has an individual a/c unit and it wasn't very effective) and extremely low water pressure in the shower.

I stayed at the Penny House Inn with a big group (3 families, each with adults in their 50s and kids in their 20s) - and everyone enjoyed it very much. The owners and staff are extremely friendly and accommodating, which made for a very pleasant stay! The inn itself is lovely, with charming, homey decor and beautiful rooms with jacuzzis and fireplaces. The traditional weathered shingles and crushed shell driveway make you really feel like you're in Cape Cod (opposed to some of the hotels/motels in the area).

Food - Each day there was a beautiful fruit arrangement on the table, yogurt and homemade granola, followed by a tasty entree. There's also fruit infused water available all day long and cookies in the afternoon/evening.

Activities - There's a salt water pool and fire pit in the backyard. Coast Guard Beach was only a few minutes drive away, and there are tons of great restaurants, ice cream shops and mini golf within a mile of the inn.

I haven't stayed at another B&B on the cape, but compared to the other full service hotel options in the immediate area -- you'd be missing out if you didn't stay at the Penny House.

Room Tip: The suites vary in layout. While my family stayed in a suite with 1 master bedroom and a daybed in t...

We had the pleasure of staying at the Penny Inn B&B this weekend. On Rt 6 in Eastham, this historical property is well-placed behind tall hedges and a crushed shell parking lot (so the rooms are quiet). The new owner is delightful - friendly, attentive and focused on being helpful to guests (same for the staff). The Inn offers a mixture of rooms/shared spaces - including wide slat floors and beams - so consider your options for room selection. Planned updates/renovations should make the Inn even nicer over time. The breakfast room was cozy with tasty fare and daily alternatives. Nice touches include a salt-water in-ground pool, free beverages (including fruit-infused water) and assorted cookies for afternoon treats. This is an unpretentious B&B (which we like), a convenient location and great place to "hang your hat" for a weekend of fun on the Cape and National Seashore.

Room Tip: Some rooms have attached terraces and new whirlpool tubs !

This was my second time this summer at the Penny House Inn. The first time I was with my sister for a girl’s weekend. Despite that fact that Melissa, Cindy and Nino has just taken over from the former owners on Tuesday and we checked in on Friday, everything went perfectly. We stayed in a suite and it was gorgeous- TV and DVD player, Jacuzzi tub, fireplace. Just lovely.
Breakfast is not to be missed- I’ve had everything from pumpkin pancakes to carmelized onion, mushroom and tomato soufflé. They attend to your every need and most of the time know what you need before they do. The presentation is stunning. I wish I had taken a picture of the way the fruit plate is laid out- just beautiful.
My husband and I went back this weekend and stayed in Moonraker (the top floor of the carriage house. Once again we had an ouststanding experience. I still can’t believe how well the inn is run given they’ve had 8 weeks. The inn is run like they have been there for years.
I have to say that although the food is great, the rooms are beautiful, attention to detail outstanding, what I like most about Penny House Inn is the staff. So friendly, funny and attentive without hovering. Can’t wait to go back!

Room Tip: They are all wonderful but I like the ones that overlook the pool. The Moonraker is great- huge, fun...

Arrived at 830 pm were welcomed in, shown all the amenities. Rooms clean, smelled nice. Inn keeper was very nice and warm. Provided a spectacular ace for dinner. Value for the dollar a little bit pricy, but i would still come back here.

In mid-June, my wife and I spent three nights at this Inn and enjoyed every minute. We were welcomed as special guests the moment we walked in. As newly-weds (ages 66 and 72), we treated ourselves to the honeymoon package--champagne, chocolates, roses, whirlpool, massages--and couldn't have been more pleased. The food and staff are excellent, and it is a great base for exploring the National Seashore and the culture of Provincetown. If you don't stay here, you'll miss the handcarved fruit plate presented by Nino, an Italian artist.

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.
