Great place to go and truly relax. Beautiful setting, lovely walkable neighborhood. Breakfast choices of sweet and savory are amazing. I slept like a baby. Highly recommend. The owners are the sweetest and accommodating couple.

My husband and I were very pleased with our experience at The Captain Farris House. Carol and Jeff are terrific innkeepers who enjoy making sure their guests are comfortable and have everything they need. We enjoyed talking to them and were sad to say goodbye at the end of our week. Each staff person we met was also friendly and helpful and made us feel that they were happy to accommodate our requests. We especially enjoyed the delicious breakfasts, our spacious room (The Captain Farris Suite), coming downstairs for coffee to take to our room each morning before breakfast, cookies in the afternoon, a glass of port in the evening while we relaxed in the beautiful and comfortable main floor living room. The location was a plus for exploring the Cape. If we ever make it to this area again, we will definitely stay with Carol and Jeff. Thank you!

We spent 3 wonderful days at the Captain Farris House. We were warmly greeted by our hosts, who immediately helped out by getting us a reservation at a terrific restaurant the night we arrived. They got to know us personally and we loved the suite we were in. Very cozy with a comfortable bed. The snacks were always fresh, available and homemade and each breakfast was satisfying and exceptional. They recommended activities in the area ( the Cape Cod Rail Trail and others) that we took full advantage of. The staff was very attentive and made our stay that much more pleasant. We would love to return.

Run, don’t walk, to the Captain Farris House! Gorgeous bed and breakfast with the most gracious and accommodating owners, Carol & Jeff. The entire staff was friendly and provided superb service. Delicious, gourmet breakfasts are served every morning, accommodations are spacious and beautifully appointed and the location is perfect - close to the beautiful Dennis beaches and the bustling harbor and town of Hyannis. The perfect place for a romantic get away, or a vacation to take in all the Cape has to offer. We will be returning for sure.

My wife & I recently stayed at the Captain Farris House when we visited the Cape for a few days. What a lovely location, serving a terrific breakfast, a memorable afternoon tea and hosts that could not be nicer. Carol & Jeff keep the place spotless and quaint, but with the modern amenities that you would otherwise expect. I must say that South Yarmouth does not have the crowd-drawing features & attractions that other Cape locations have, but there is plenty to do within a 15>30 minute drive. Also, we went there in August, 2022 & had a day plus of rain & showers. When that happens, the local indoor attractions on the Cape fill up with other travelers not wanting to be out in the inclement weather. In our case, we were boxed out of things we would have liked to do.

Carol and Jeff are awesome hosts. Everything thing was great! Clean rooms, awesome breakfasts and great staff. Great central location on the Cape as well. We spent a week visiting the entire area and this was a great home base to use for our travels. We would definitely stay here again.

Everything about the Captain Farris House is first class! The property is classic Cape Cod. The grounds are lovely. We had breakfast outside every morning. The staff were attentive and the food was delicious. Our room was spacious with very elegant decorations. The best part of our stay was Carol. We eat gluten free and she baked fresh cookies just for us everyday. Carol and Jeff were incomparable hosts. They are warm and friendly and were accommodating to all our needs. We will absolutely return to the Captain Farris House!
