This little B&B made for a very relaxing honeymoon stay. Jeanette is so kind and hospitable which added to a replenishing weekend in the coziest room. The tub in the bathroom was right under a skylight, a huge bonus if you enjoy a little soaking. Also, if you are a cat lover consider this a gem because there is the cutest cat ever guarding the premises. ❤️🐱

My husband and I were desperate to get away for a night and decided to try this spot to celebrate my birthday. We were a little hesitant during COVID-19, but our worries vanished upon arrival. Our room was clean and we felt very safe. Jeannette was great, we arrived a little later than scheduled and communication with her was seamless. There is a cozy, welcoming vibe throughout. Unfortunately because of COVID-19 there was no breakfast, but there were muffins and beverages available. At Jeannette's suggestion we tried a cute little spot, Crabapples, across the street for breakfast. Overall really pleased we tried something new!

We were visiting Falmouth from Dartmouth Mass for an overnite escape and to explore the Shining Sea Bike Trail. We were delighted with the Frederick Williams house from the start. The internet pictures were true to life. Our room was the Seaside Room and it lived up to its name. The decor was new and fresh and made us feel so welcome. The Inn smelled so clean and looked spotless. The innkeeper, Jeannette went out of her way to let us use the house bikes well before check-in time and arranged to have our room ready early upon our arrival in the afternoon. Brianna and Jeannette offered friendly conversation during our breakfast, while we enjoyed some of their delicious homemade muffins. They took into consideration my nut allergy and when I requested hot water to make oatmeal, Jeannette sliced fresh apple and sprinkled cinnamon on top. When I mentioned that I loved the scent of the Dead Sea bodywash and lotion in our room, she sold me one of each. I wished we could stay longer, but we will be back. Especially during Covid, we all need a place to go where we feel safe and relaxed. You can be sure this Inn will not disappoint!

We just returned from Falmouth and enjoyed our time there. The cottage has a very large kitchen and it is very well equipped with everything you will need. The living room has several couches with a high ceiling and ceiling fan. The best part is the outdoor area which is lovely,along with the fire pit. A great place to have a small cookout or just a drink or read a book. The bike path is wonderful and bikes included is a plus, although I could not find one that was very comfortable because they didn’t have a bike enough for me. No big deal, I still enjoyed the path on 4 of our 7 days. We opted for the Continental breakfast which was very nice. Jeanette was accommodating and a perfect hostess. My only issue was that we are used to a bigger bed, but I slept well enough. All in all a very fun trip and nice spot to stay.
