We stayed in Room 4 hoping we'd have an encounter with the resident ghost, Hannah. She came through and paid us a visit! My daughters were thrilled and it was a trip that we'll never forget. The owners of the Inn are very friendly, helpful, and went above and beyond to make our trip the best it could be. I... More

Thanks so much for the kind review. Your daughters are precious! It was fun having an eleventh birthday. The notes to Hannah are still in the cupola! Our staff loved your family!

As a frequent visitor to Orleans, the Orleans Inn is a consistent destination for our family. We love a table on the back deck, overlooking the town cove. It's just a lovely pleasant place to sit and have a drink and a nice meal. The menu isn't fancy, but the food is good. There is a good variety for folks... More

Thank you very much for the nice review. We are glad you enjoy the Inn and it means so much to our staff. We have finalized the new menu and are receiving rave reviews. The Deck is the best kept secret on the Cape. We do not advertise and it is word of mouth from guests like you that keep... More

It rained Friday so we went shopping. After passing the Orleans Waterfront in many many times decided to stop for lunch. Lovely place with a local harbor view. Because it was raining we ate in the bar overlooking the water. Service is good, chowder is good and crab-cake good. Nice place for a couple. Will stop by again.

Whenever I go to the Cape we stay at the Orleans Inn. It's great to stay in a family owned in where the owners are always there to make sure your stay is as good as it can be. Ed, Erin and Megan always make us feel like we're a part of their family. What more could you ask for?

Four of us decided to go to the Inn for dinner and sit on the outside deck rather than inside. Views of the bay, boats and fowl were wonderful as was the food and service. There are really no bad seats but if you get there early enough, you might be able to get a table closer to the water.... More

When you walk into the Orleans Waterfront Inn and are welcomed with a cheerful "welcome home" by Ed, you really feel a part of this interesting old house and the family who dwell here.

Basic and nice room. Pet friendly as well. Got a free upgrade. Breakfasts are free. On the Cove and our room overlooked it. Room was a bit noisy, as it was above the kitchen. Ask for one in a different spot. Owner and staff were very friendly and helpful. We had a nice stay.

Me and my two daughters (young teens) booked this Inn for the first time at the last minute. Every place was practically booked for the weekend. I selected a room that didn't have a waterfront view because of my budget, which even the regular room went over my budget anyways. But I did it anyways. The room had two twin... More
