“Superior Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2008

Just got back from a weekend at this Inn and both Mary and the Inn lived up to the wonderful reviews I read on this site about the Inn (and the reason I chose this place). The breakfasts were outstanding, and Mary even surprised my boyfriend and another guest with a birthday cake since both had birthdays this weekend.

This was my boyfriend's first stay in a B&B, and I could tell he was hesitant at first. Granted, you don't have the privacy/isolation you might have in a hotel, and he was a bit freaked that we could hear other people moving about/talking in the Inn from our room (which I think is common at most B&Bs). But he did very much enjoy the personal connection with Mary, her recommendations for things to do/places to eat, and the conversations/greetings during breakfast -- and agreed that personal touch was something you definitely DON'T find at a hotel.

I myself have stayed at numerous B&Bs and while I found the hosts at all or most of those places delightful, I think Mary is in her own category. She really makes you feel like you are visiting a friend whose only concern is making sure you have a great time in her wonderful slice of Cape Cod heaven.

Mary and her partner were superb. We arrived midday after a long flfihgt. She took care of dinner reservations, Barnstable Retaurant, which was great food. She offered us wine, the breakfgasts were outstanding.
Whenver we came in or left she offered us tips and hints, greeted us, it was really nice, you felt like you were coming home.
The rooms are huge, great value for the buck, you have the run of the house so can relax in any number of open rooms.
Mary handled our Hyline high speed Ferry reservation, our dinners, she called around on 4-5 occasions to get us info.
I could go on but this is the kind of B&B you find and stick with, we are coming back here, no need to ever look any further.
I actually promised myself that since I used this website to review B&B's before we took this last trip, that I'd share the good experiences when they happened.
Stay at the 1 Centre Street Inn, you will NOT regret the decision.
Oh yeah, the breakfasts were way more than plentiful, in fact we felt guilty for not eating as much as was brought out, the food was great, and they pour a good glass of wine too!!!

What a great find! Situated along the 6A near Yarmouth, this Inn is just great. Mary, the Innkeeper, is the friendliest, most helpful innkeeper we've ever met.

For the Brits, there's the added bonus that she makes a great pot of tea and the breakfasts are wonderful and varried.

Our room was realy cosy, with a great bathroom as well as fridge, tv, cd player and rocking chair.

When we go back to the Cape, we'll be staying here.

As an added bonu, the inn is about 5 mins from Hyannis Harbour where we went on a great whale watch that Mary sold us discounted tickets for!

We were a family of 5 adults and arrived late in the evening at the One Centre Inn. We were tired of our long trip of 7 hours but had a warm welcome from Mary, the innkeeper who then took care of dinner reservation for us. It was a very good choice (Barnstable Tavern in Barnstable), the food was good and not too pricey.

Breakfast at the Inn was also delicious. The rooms were very cosy and the beds are very very comfortable. We definitely recommend the Once Centre Inn. Lots of attention to details and we loved our stay there.

We had been travelling the whole day and when we finally arrived at One Centre Street Inn, Mary, the proprieter, met us at the door, took one look at us and said, "Would you like a glass of wine?" We went for peace and quiet and we found it in abundance along with friendly company, the biggest breakfasts I've ever had at a B&B, a comfortable room, knowledgeable advice on what to do and where to go, and the feeling of home. We spent much of our time at the inn on Mary's wonderful screened-in porch, and wandering the gift and antique shops of Yarmouth Port. It's off the regular tourist track so your best bet is to drive there because the local buses don't run along Route 6A.

  • Liked — The peace and quiet.
  • Disliked — The lack of public transportation to visit other places on the Cape.

Our first visit to Cape Cod was unforgettable, in large part because of our lodging at One Centre Street Inn. The rooms themselves are authentic "Old Cape"--you feel like you are in a sea captain's home--with elegantly appointed furnishings and accessories-- yet no comfort is sacrificed to achieve the 19th century experience. The best part of our stay however was the pampering we received from our amiable and genial innkeeper, Mary, who greeted us warmly at the door each time we arrived, delighted us each morning with a different gourmet breakfast--our favorite was her signature "Eggs Singleton"--and sent us to bed with a wine and cheese nightcap. She is extremely knowledgeable about the environs and each of her suggestions about where to eat and what to do were exactly right. We plan to return often to the Cape, and this will be our "home" there.

We stayed here for one night in June. The owner Mary and her partner Judy ( who we did not meet ) have only recently assumed ownership of the Inn. Mary, however, is a natural. Even though she is new to the business she was the perfect host. We have encountered some long time inn owners in our travels who could certainly benefit by watching Mary in action. She served crackers and cheese on the expansive screened in porch and immediately volunteered to make dinner reservations when we mentioned we were thinking of having dinner at a nearby restaurant. We had a great breakfast that included fresh fruit, blueberry muffins, and quiche.
The building, constructed in the 1800's is on the National Register and has lots of New England character with wide floor boards and high ceilings. We stayed on the second floor in the Doane Room that had a king size bed, small refrigerator, and large bathroom. The entire Inn was well furnished and immaculate.
