“Escape on the Cape”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

Honeysuckle Hill is tucked away off of Route 6A on a tiny little gravel drive called Wisteria Lane. Arriving at sunset, the house was lit up like something from a travel postcard.

Many people say that the Cape is losing it's charm - too many mini golf courses, over crowded beaches, traffic, t shirt shops. Honeysuckle Hill is the polar opposite of all those things.

I travel quite a bit - usually quick trips - and I stay in a variety of places. Bed and breakfasts, chain hotels, independently owned hotels, luxury hotels, boutique hotels. It takes a lot for a place to grab my attention and stand out as remarkable. This place is truly remarkable.

As you walk up to the porch you experience the beautiful landscaping, the inviting semi-circle of white Adirondack chairs, the carefully chosen decor, the weathered shingled siding, and the sprawling gentleness of the house. Stepping into the porch is like stepping into the perfect summer living room - white wicker furniture arranged in a way that is conducive to socializing, but also offers areas that provide intimacy for smaller groups. It is screened in allowing the breeze and the smells of summer to drift indoors. The living room is thoughtful, comfortable and tasteful. Artwork by local artists punctuates the living room and the rest of the house.

The dining room is cozy but easily seats 10 people with one large table in the middle, and 3 smaller tables skirting the perimeter.

Everything is a mix of traditional and historic, with comfort and modern amenities. My room - Morning Glory - was upstairs tucked away through a narrow hallway. The room was spacious - plenty of room to relax and unpack. There was more than enough space. Decorated in cool shades of green and white, it was very relaxing. The private bath was generously sized. The shower was particularly nice. Tiled in marble, classic brass shower head (there were lovely period brass fixtures throughout the whole house), a built in seat - it was narrow, but surprisingly comfortable and had plenty of room to maneuver.

The TV was small, but had all the channels I enjoy watching (including the Food Network). And, truth be told, this isn't the type of place where you want to cozy up in front of the TV.

Breakfast the first morning included: strawberry yogurt brulee, squash and zucchini frittata with homemade salsa, homemade banana bread, coffee, juice. Everything was delicious.

Breakfast the second morning included: fresh fruit cocktail, lemon ricotta pancakes, homemade blueberry bread, coffee, juice. Again - everything was fantastic.

This was technically a business trip, but I had a friend stay with me so we could enjoy the non-work time together. We enjoyed take out in the dining room, cocktails on the porch, and ended the evenings in the living room. There were only 2 other guests while we were there so everything felt very private and exclusive.

Nancy and Rick were the perfect hosts. They helped turn our takeout into a true dinner with plates, glasses, flatware and candlelight. They even accommodated our schedule by starting breakfast a half hour early on the morning we left.

I would absolutely stay here again. If you are looking for an escape, Honeysuckle Hill is the place. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway, or just a solo relaxation getaway.

This was our second stay at the Honeysuckle Inn with Rick and Nancy as innkeepers. This is such a charming B & B and our room, as usual, was spotless. We were lucky enough to have great weather and each morning Nancy and Rick sent us off with a delicious and beautifully presented breakfast.

Rick and Nancy are so welcoming that you feel at "home" the minute you check in. If you're looking for that "perfect Cape Cod getaway" look no further than The Honeysuckle Inn!

Room Tip: Because of the private access, we prefer the Wisteria Room.

When we spend time at the Honeysuckle Hill Inn, we feel the charm and beauty of the surroundings are so lovely and welcoming, it would be impossible not to relax and move right into a vacation mode...even if just for a few days. The lush gardens are beautiful and diverse. There are fruits and vegetables, which Nancy and Rick serve to their best advantage in their delicious breakfasts each morning. And fresh baked goods are always on the menu...so, so good!
Nancy has a wide variety of pants, flowers and roses. Fresh flowers are in view throughout the Inn. All the rooms are very lovely and comfortable, and sleep comes easy.... One room also has a Jacuzzi.
There is so much to see and do around this beautiful area, and Rick will always share his abundance of great ideas for interesting and lovely places to visit. We look forward already to our next visit. Nancy and Rick are the perfect host and hostess!

Room Tip: All the rooms are very lovely...we have stayed in the room with the jacuzzi; this is a large room up...

Another delightful trip to Honeysuckle Hill … our third visit in the last few years. We totally lucked out with the weather on June 8 and 9th! Our favorite room was waiting for us and Nancy and Rick, as always, the best hosts around. Beautifully prepared breakfasts both mornings served in a lovely setting. Screened-in porch and beautiful back yard and gardens are perfect areas to relax. Highly recommend this charming Bed and Breakfast in West Barnstable ….. a really super location to get to anywhere you want on the Cape.

We loved our recent stay at Honeysuckle Hill B&B. The accommodations were charming and we loved talking with Rick and Nancy. The homemade breakfasts were absolutely amazing and the sightseeing and shopping suggestions were perfect! Thanks for making our visit to Cape Cod one to remember. We look forward to visiting again!

Beautiful setting, comfortable and clean rooms, helpful and friendly innkeepers! Breakfasts were incredible! Hosts were gracious! Rick's tips made our trip much better. He suggested changes in our itinerary due to weather and they made all the difference! He knew the area and the restaurants. Thank you for a wonderful stay on the Cape!

My wife and I stayed 2 nights here and if we had more time would have stayed longer. The hosts were excellent and made us feel right at home. They went over the Cape Cod area and recommended beaches, restaurants and places to see and go to. They also offered us a glass of wine while we sat in the yard eating some food. A nice touch! The place was a beautiful 19th century home located in an area of well kept homes and yards all along the highway. The yard was large and the house had a great screen enclosed porch and cosy living room. Our room was nice and clean with a lot of original looking woodwork and flooring. It was a good location for exploring Cape Cod. The breakfasts were excellent. We would recommend staying and would stay here again for sure ourselves.
