I cannot tell you how much my fiance and I loved the Crook Jaw! We stayed on a Fri and Sat night in August - both nights were wonderfully comfortable and relaxing. Plus, I got engaged that weekend - what a perfect place to stay on such a memorable weekend!
When we arrived at the Crook Jaw on Friday night we were greeted by the owner Brian. Let me tell you - Brian is everything a good host is supposed to be! He welcomed us into his beautifully laid out living area, talked with us like we were friends, and then showed us to the Captain Crocker Room.
I think this Inn has maybe 6 rooms or so and we peeked into 2 other rooms - in addition to staying in the Capt. Crocker one. The 3 that I saw were so adorable and romantic and just epitomized what a Cape Cod B&B should be - has that beachy, New England, romantic feel to it. I would rather stay somewhere like this, what that sorta feel, than have the sterile feel of some random Cape Cod chain.
As for the Capt. Crocker - super HUGE king-sized bed, quaint bathroom, great reading chair by the window and tastefully decorated pics, lamps, furniture, etc. There is also a CD player with romantic burned CD's (I presume the work of Brian) that you can fall asleep to. There wasn't a TV in the room but there was really no need for one at all.
Brian made an outstanding breakfast for us. It wasn't your standard breakfast fare - IE eggs, toast and bacon. The morning we had it he served a delicious egg vegetable fritata with sausages, homemade muffins, OJ and this great fruit dish. It was filling but also seemingly healthy.
Proximity to Nantucket/Martha's Vineyard Ferry
This place is in a perfect location to get to the ferries in Hyannis. I think it took us about 15 minutes max to get to our ferry to Nantucket. Make sure you call ahead for tickets to the ferry and then set your alarm. Worth a trip on the ferry since they are so close and Nantucket and M.V. are fun places to venture to.
I give this place 5 stars for its charm and for the warmth and extra touches that Brian provides. He took the place over just 3 seasons or so ago and he has made this place great! He seems like such a nice and knowledgeable guy which goes a long way in my book. Plus, the rooms are so beautiful and homey and his breakfast is delicious. Definitely check this place out for a few nights - relaxed, clean, and beautiful!
