We loved our stay and can’t wait to return. We were treated like royalty during our visit. The room was very clean and the breakfast was incredible. The scones are the highlight of the breakfast and they don’t disappoint. The only regret we have is not staying longer. We will return soon for another visit.

Rick & Tom were the consummate hosts . Warm and charming; they manage to entertained their guests with unexpected song and dance performances plus making mouth watering breakfast including their locally famous and daily changing scones . My stay was recommended by my client who had stayed with them before and said I was in for a treat. She called to ask me to reserve a room for her next month and I could understand why . I can’t wait to return ! Comfy bed in a charming and beautifully appointed setting . Convenient parking on site .

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary with a stay at the Captain David Kelley House. It was a perfect mini-getaway from beginning to end. From the champers split and chocolate-dipped strawberries in our room when we arrived to the scrumptious dinner at a restaurant recommended by Rick and Tom (plus, they called ahead and let the restaurant know about our anniversary, and the restaurant treated us like royalty, including a special dessert), to the not-to-be-missed amazing breakfast and "show" the next morning. Rick and Tom are the absolute best hosts. The room was beautiful and the bed oh-so-comfy. If you want the perfect stay on Cape Cod, then this is the place for you!

My husband and I spent 3 nights at the Captain David Kelly house on beautiful Cape Cod. WOW! We stayed in the CaptainKelly room, it was quite large and charmingly furnished. Our hosts, Rick and Tom, were welcoming and helpful. They are very special guys, so charming, funny and accommodating. They absolutely couldn’t have been any nicer. They worked so hard to make our stay comfortable and memorable. And now to.....the breakfast! It is a 3 course meal, served elegantly and the food is delicious. Yummy fruit salad and then the famous scone wars. These are followed by the main course, for example an omelet or eggs Benedict. As to the entertainment at breakfast, oh boy, I’ll leave you to discover it on your own. But trust me, it’s memorable! I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this delightful inn.
