“Nauset House is a a tranquil, charming inn run by a caring family.”
Reviewed September 24, 2009

On the recommendation of a friend, we have stayed several days at Nauset House Inn for each of the past two years in mid-September and had a very pleasant, calming experience each time. The Inn is quite old and charming and has an understated, unfussy style. There is no television or other modern distractions from truly relaxing and getting away from it all. The owner/operators, John and Cindy, are friendly, caring people who work hard to make their guests' comfort and happiness their top priority; many of the same guests return year after year. Guests may start their days enjoying delicious, creative breakfasts at long colonial-style tables in the charming brick-floored dining room featuring a large stone fireplace. There is a wine and cheese cocktail hour in the comfortable, book-lined common room each afternoon. Cindy's mother, an artist and author, lives and works (and gardens) on site; we have had several interesting conversations with her about many aspects of life on Cape Cod and purchased several of her paintings which now grace our New York home. The inn is centrally located to all points of Cape Cod and is situated on a quiet street within walking distance to beautiful Nauset Beach, part of the Cape Cod National Seashore.

My wife and I, along with our 26 year old daughter who lives in NYC have been staying at the Nauset House Inn for several years now and we will continue to in the future. John, Cindy and Diane are wonderful hosts and have become good friends as well.

The Inn is perfect.......lovely rooms and baths, wonderful decor, super clean, great location within a ten minute walk or 2 minute drive to beautiful Nauset Beach, nice grounds, a wonderfull greenhouse to sneak away to for a read or rest........and just
big enough to still feel like "home".

Each morning a terrific Breakfast with several delicious and hardy choices are offered in a friendly and congenial atmosphere. The young people who work at the Inn are equaly as nice and anxious to make your stay a pleasure. We were very fortunate to find this special place on our very first trip to the Cape , and have stopped looking for other options because we are so very happy right where we are.

I probably shouldn't tell you what a great value it is compared to it's peers.......because
it seems it's getting harder and harder each year to reserve rooms, and often many months in advance.

I travel extensively for my business and stay at plush hotels and resorts on a regular basis. If that's what you are looking for , the Inn probably isn't the place for you, but if your'e looking for a home away from home ........it's going to be very difficult to beat !

I have been staying at the Nauset House Inn for 30 years and I suppose that says much of what needs to be said.The Inn , Innkeepers and the Staff are all delightful.

Spending the afternoon in the greenhouse with a book and a glass of wine is still one of life's real pleasures.

If its peace ,quiet , and a short walk to one of the great beaches of North America that you are looking for ,I highly recommend the NHI.

Enjoyed a storybook escape into the charm of Nauset Inn. We were cosetted in a picturesque many angled bedroom with delightful furnishings of a byegone era. Relaxed in the comfort of deep cushioned chairs in the intimate lounge happily following the suggestions Dianne offerred on so much to see and do in the close proximity of the hotel. A relaxed intimate meanngful few days amongst strangers who soon became friends.

We have been there from august 31th to september 3rd and our stay was fantastic. John, Cindy and Diane are very kind and helpful, the breakfast (it changed every morning) was amazing and the location too. We staied in the Cranbery room with a common bath (very very clean and no problems at all with the other guests... The house is half a mile from the Nauset beach and from there you can reach the center of Orleans where you can rent bicicles...fantastic....they also booked the Whale watching in Porvince town....I would recommend this hostel 100% and more....!!!!

This small inn located within walking distance of wonderful beaches exudes warmth, charm and friendliness at a level far above what is more commonly found at most country inns. Attention to detail and consideration to guest comforts is paramount. Arrive as a guest, leave as a friend.

Beautifully situated within walking distance of the beach, warm and caring innkeepers and a delectable breakfast. East Orleans is the perfect get-away town with plenty to see and do to keep you busy between naps!
