“A truly special B&B”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We just spent New Year's Eve at the Captain David Kelley House, and we could not have been happier with our stay. Rick and Tom are consummate innkeepers who truly seem to love what they do. Their constant energy and enthusiasm made for lots of laughter and enjoyable moments whenever we interacted with them. The room we stayed in -- the Captain Kelley room -- was beautifully appointed with one of the most comfortable beds I've slept in at a B&B. The decor was gracious and, given the holiday season, enhanced with several festive decorations. The breakfast in the morning, including Tom's exquisite scones (though the ones Rick had made the day before were delicious the previous afternoon, too), was gourmet quality.

We have stayed at a few different B&Bs in this area, and the Captain David Kelley House has now become our favorite without a doubt. And without a doubt, we will be back!

Room Tip: Our room, though facing the street and near the front door, was very quiet and private. We look for...

My wife and I have ben B&B hoping for 3 summers on Cape Cod and discovered The CDK House on-line. The reviews & photos made it a "must stop" and it will stay at the top of our list for summers to come. Located in Centerville it is close to where ever you are headed on the Cape, including the ferry to Nantucket for a day trip. The rooms are 5 Star, and the "welcome gift" of a small yellow tote was perfect to pack the complementary beach blanket etc. for the short walk to one of the Capes best beaches. The Inn is located next to the famous Centerville General Store, but most important just around the corner from Centervilles popular ice cream store. Every small Cape town has one and this is one of the best. You can pick up a walking tour map from hosts Rick & Tom for a self-guided walk up the street to see all the historic houses on the block. Take their cue for restaurants too. They know them all and can swing a great table for you. As teh song says, "If you spend an evening, you'll want to stay.." and you will. Extend your stay or you'll hate yourself when you have to leave too soon.

As I look back over my travels this year, one of my favorite destinations is this B&B! This summer my daughter and I made our second visit to the Captain David Kelley House, and, once again, it was a five star experience. The only complaint is we did not see enough of Rick and Tom due to our coming and going in opposition to their schedules! This is THE best place to stay on Cape Cod, and it's probably one of the best B&B experiences I've ever had anywhere. From the comfortable rooms (both common rooms and private rooms) to the delicious breakfasts to the beautiful grounds, this is just top notch. And did I mention the great inn keepers?? Thank you, Rick and Tom, for providing your guests even more comforts than home along with your gracious hospitality.

Room Tip: Rooms on back of house are more isolated from street (traffic) noise if that bothers you.

As persons who travel to Cape Cod frequently and have experienced many B&Bs throughout New England, we are unanimous in our agreement that the CDK House in Centerville rates with the very best we've visited. The inn is elegant, rooms are ALL "5-STAR, and hosts, Rick and Tom, fit right in with that description. They were gracious, entertaining, helpful, and wonderful company. Their skills don't stop with being great inn operators and owners; they are both accomplished chefs and,as we discovered, musicians Breakfasts served are an epicurean delight, special enough to keep visitors coming back over and over again. Centerville is a charming Cape town and Craigville Beach, located within walking distance of the inn, is among the finest on Cape Cod. This is definitely a DESTINATION inn, one you are sure to love..

This was one of the best B & Bs we stayed in on our recent trip to New England and we were sorry that we only had time to spend one night there. The house is just lovely and very tastefully furnished. The scones at breakfast were simply delicious and it was so good to be able to eat in the conservatory overlooking the garden. We were made hugely welcome by Rick and Tom and would have no hesitation in recommending Captain David Kelley House.

My wife and I stayed for four nights in October, and we enjoyed it so much that my wife and her girlfriend went back in November (as part of the annual, Fall shopping excursion). The rooms are spotless and nicely decorated and fairly priced. A wonderful breakfast each morning. Rick and Tom are two of the best hosts you will ever find... friendly, considerate, knowledgeable about the area... always helpful. We've stayed in many other B & B's over the years, and this one is right at the top of our list. A wonderful experience... you will not go wrong. Forget the others... stay here... we will again for sure.

We had a lovely weekend getaway at the Capt. David Kelley House in Centerville, MA. Our room was charming, comfortable and oh! that 4 poster king sz. bed..Awesome! The house and grounds were beautiful as well. The breakfast was fantastic, especially their famous scones. The guys were away, but Barbara was a delightful hostess and great chef. We can't wait to go back next year
