Our women's support group chose this picturesque, accommodating, people-friendly inn for our retreat again this year. The owners know the value of sparkling customer service. That's aside from the delicious, complimentary breakfast items laid out every morning. Coffee is available all day and night in the breakfast nook. There is so much available on the property above and beyond the... More

This restored Inn has many reasons to visit. The facilities including nicely appointed and individually decorated rooms. The floral and well cared for grounds contribute to relaxation. The Inn displays a cozy and quaint atmosphere with a prime location near Nauset Beach. A free breakfast, nice touch and free parking adds to the allure of this property.

A group of my girlfriends went to Ship's Knee Inn last fall--yes 2014! All 10 of us! I still reflect on the great times we shared at the inn. We stayed in the Inn's apartment and other rooms close the apartment. We spent our weekend taking leisurely walks to the beach, browsing at the quaint shops in nearby towns, watched... More
