The Winstead Beach House is the perfect place for a few days relaxing by the ocean. The private beach is "right out back" - smooth sand, gentle waves on Nantucket Sound. Our ground level room was comfortable and really did have "ocean view." There were a queen size and twin size bed in the room + 2 armchairs; a dresser,...

Dear Katherine P, The grab bar is duly noted, and though many rooms do have them, I agree all should. We have chosen the more environmentally friendly route so glass ware is in the rooms and the water cooler/heater in the dining area for unlimited water. We choose to display our pertinent information in a frame on a table top....

Over the last fifteen years, we’ve stayed at the Beach Resort eight times. We have wonderful memories of all our stays. The location cannot be beat, especially if you like being right on the beach. As you can see from the pictures, the ambience of the Winstead is wonderful—easily a five-star location. The Beach Resort itself is charming, exactly what...

Dear William D, It is always great to have old friends return. We do want everything every time to be perfect but sometimes circumstances do not allow for that. As mentioned the room next to you froze your system by leaving their door and windows open with the air-conditioning on, after the thawing you were all set. Glad to see...

Excellent location at the center of the cape. We really enjoyed our room at the beach resort. Great downstairs sitting area for eating breakfast and reading the newspaper. Covered patio is relaxing with awesome view of the beach and ocean. Excellent facility.

The location of the beach house is very good, however the house itself felt a bit like a nursing home with the strange music playing throughout the day and just the general atmosphere. Don't get me wrong it was not full of old people just had that feel about it. The room we stayed in was beach house number 5...

Dear sareilly2, I wish i had known about your music issue. We do change it up during the day. Again, if we had only known we would have changed out our morning music of Lady Gaga/Tony Bennett duos. We use Pandora radio so we have unlimited options. I am sorry that no one offered to store your bags after you...

Our family thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Winstead Beach Resort. Doug and the other staff were friendly and helpful, the rooms were large and well kept, and the beach is gorgeous. Breakfasts, while largely the same every day, included delicious home-baked muffins and bread, along with an assortment of cereals, fruit, and juices. The beach property is walking distance...

Dear Misslauralondon, Disappointment can fester; always bring up issues immediately. Nothing can be addressed without knowledge. Our phone numbers are clearly marked in the rooms and our front desk persons are knowledgeable about the area and love sharing our special places. We do answer our telephones 24 hours a day. Unfortunately the young foreign student housekeepers are not versed on...

We stayed at the Winstead Inn on Parallel St this past weekend for a family wedding and have only great things to say about our experience.

We stayed two days in Winstead Inn as a family with teenagers and very much enjoyed our stay. Doug and his team were very charming and welcoming. Both locations (Beach house, as well the village inn) are extremely agreeable, clean and warm. Wonderful property in a very nice environment. We highly recommend this cosy small hotel.

Dear Simona_JFrance, And of course if you want the heated(86 degrees) salt pool you need to stay at the Winstead Village Inn but of course you do have full use of the ocean view and its amenities. Thank you for making our job so much fun.

We had read such great reviews about this Inn, so we came with high expectations. We had the chance to take a long needed vacation and stayed at the Winstead Inn for 4 nights, over Memorial Day weekend. Due to traffic, we got there 30 min. later than the check in time of 3-6pm.

Dear DJRSPR, Thank you for letting us know of our short comings. All guests at the Winstead Inn do have assigned parking spaces so we do have enough spaces. Unfortunately not everyone follows the rules and not all guests are reachable 100% of the time. Even though our front desk is only open 8:00am - 9:00pm, we do have phones...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Distinguished, yet casual and unassuming. The Winstead Inn enjoys the serenity of Harwich Center. Just 100 yards to the Cape Cod Rail Trail and only 1.5 Miles to our private beach front Beach House. Our private vehicle will transport Winstead Inn guests to and from the Beach House. The Beach House enjoys its beach front location while being only a seven minute stroll to Harwich Port village. Enjoy the beach, restaurants, and shops without ever needing your car. Cape Cod at its best. ... more   less
