We were delighted by our stay at the Captain Farris House. The room was lovely, the food excellent and Carol and Jeff were the consummate hosts. Not only were they always available and helpful but they followed up our inquiries (wi-fi, restaurants) to be sure that things were working out.

We had a terrific stay at this B&B, which is in great condition and very clean. We stayed in Aunt Liddy's Room, which looks every bit as good as the pictures on their website. We had our own private staircase leading up to our room, and our own balcony with table and chairs. The balcony actually overlooks the back of the property, but so what when our room is so lovely, and how often do you get a private balcony when traveling? There is lots of storage space in the drawers and closet, and all the furniture, carpets, paint and amenities are in excellent shape. Free WiFi is speedy. Our room was quiet and well-insulated. There's nothing like ending the day (in the fall) with a warm fireplace and some treats from the hosts! Speaking of the hosts: Carol and Jeff Watson were friendly, attentive to our dietary restrictions, and just delightful to talk to. Breakfast in their cozy dining room was delicious and filling. Yvonne, their helper, has a terrific smile. The B&B is located in a beautiful, quiet residential neighborhood that makes for a lovely morning walk or jog. It's right across from the Cultural Center of Cape Cod, which features local artists and regular performances. Connections to the rest of the Cape are conveniently made. We really enjoyed staying with Carol and Jeff, and look forward to a return visit.

We enjoyed our stay at the Captain Farris House. Our room was delightful with a patio, a gas fireplace, and a lovely tub for relaxing. The hosts were warm and friendly. The excellent breakfasts served in the beautiful, sun filled breakfast room were a great way to start the day. We will be returning the next time we visit Cape Cod. It was one of the nicest B&Bs we have visited.

My wife and I have stayed a several B&Bs but The Captain Farris House was the Best. I knew we had the right place to stay in a phone conversation with Carol when I called about my reservation. She could not have been any nicer and helpful. When we arrived Carol and her husband Jeff made us feel welcomed as soon as we walked in the door. Carol just took some cookies out of the oven and they were great. She showed us around and it was even better than the pictures on the website! I could go on and on about how nice Carol and Jeff are but I have to let you know about our daily breakfast too. Every morning we were served a wonderful presentation which always was delicious. In summary I would say Carol and Jeff are "The Best of the Best" and I am so glad we were able to spend a few days with them. We miss them already................

We had our elopement in this beautiful Bed and Breakfast. We certainly felt like we were home since the beginning. The house is full of thoughtful details and it has a gorgeous garden. There is coffee, tea and delicious snacks available all the time. We stayed in the Irma Farris Suite, and it was very comfortable and appropriate for this unique experience. The distribution of the room with plenty of space was very helpful for us to get ready for the ceremony. Carol and Jeff made us feel that we were home all the time. They helped us plan everything and made our stay very special. Breakfast was always high quality with a lot of choices, and the location is very convinient with good restaurants within a few miles.
