We spent a weekend in Cape Cod to attend a friend’s wedding and celebrate our one-year anniversary and The Tern Inn was fantastic! Sue and Dan were extremely welcoming and very knowledgeable of all the great places to go on the Cape! Everything was clean, the beds were very comfortable, and the breakfast was delicious. Dan’s blueberry pancakes are out... More

Recent new owners have done an awesome job on this facility. Super quiet location and we can't say enough about the owners and the accommodations. Our room was renovated and spotless clean. The AC units are so quiet and work excellent I'm amazed anyone uses window units anymore. Brand new extremely comfortable mattresses. The location is great, off the road... More

We have been staying at the Tern Inn for many years. Two years ago, new Inn owners Dan and Sue breathed new life into the Inn. The Tern Inn is a great family location as well as for couples and singles. The property is lovely, the pool area newly renovated and a great spot to cool off after a day... More

I can't thank Dan and Sue for their hospitality. My wife and I celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary and it was an experience we'll never forget.

The Tern Inn ticks all the boxes: clean, comfortable and well located; near beaches, shops and restaurants, yet quiet and off the main road. Dan and Sue offer just the right amount of local history, personal interest, and suggestions to make your stay special. And the breakfasts... Let's just say they've figured out what you need to get moving in... More

The Tern Inn is an outstanding place to stay on Cape Cod. The rooms are impeccably clean and comfortable and the Innkeepers, Dan and Suzanne Edwards, are warm, friendly, and dedicated to ensuring each stay is the best experience. The breakfasts are wonderful, freshly made and loaded with choices. The location in West Harwich is convenient to great beaches and... More

We truly believe you could not find a more caring and responsive ownership team than Sue and Dan. The Tern Inn has several private cottages as well as the B&B. It is very quite, comfortable, clean and approximately a mile from one of the great beaches! Beautiful grounds and pool! Don't miss the great breakfast!!!

This was our first experience with a B&B. Sue and Dan were great and very welcoming. They gave us ideas for dinner, great conversation during breakfast along with a great meal, and made us feel at home. The room was clean and quite comfortable. As for location, we had no trouble getting to other areas on the Cape, whether restaurants,... More
