“Beautiful, comfortable B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2011

My husband and I just spend two nights at the Parsonage Inn. It was one of the nicest B&Bs we have ever stayed at. The room was up to date and very clean. The mattress and pillows were very comfortable. The inn keepers - Elizabeth and Ian Browne were extremely hospitable. They made of point of remembering our names. The breakfasts were fabulous - fruit topped waffles one day and a cheese souffle the next along with scones, fruit, ceral, etc. I would highly recommend this inn and will be back the next time we are in Orleans!

My wife was attending a week-long seminar at the Cape Code Institute. We stayed at this property 5 nights. While she was at the seminar I spent time working using their free Wifi. Then we spent the afternoons touring, etc. Ian and Liz are amazing hosts: friendly and efficient. Each room is different. We stayed in the Walnut. Although it is rather small, it is furnished nicely and is fully equipped. The breakfasts were lovely with a different "main course" each day (omelets, soufflé, French toast, etc.). The location is excellent near several restaurants and a small grocery store across the street. We highly recommend it.

I have attended workshops at the New England Educational Institute on Cape Cod for about 20 years, and my wife and I have stayed at the Parsonage each time I have been a participant. We have never been disappointed. The Inn is quaint, and the rooms are clean. The hosts, Ian and Liz, are friendly but unobtrusive. Every morning Liz serves a dynamite breakfast. Her home made muffins and scones are out of this world. The Inn is centrally located, and close to everything we want to do on Cape Cod. We cannot imagine staying anywhere else. This year we saw a play at the summer stock Playhouse in Dennis, and had a great time. I would highly recommend it. Every time we come to Cape Cod, we eat at Land Ho, which seems to be a favorite of both locals and tourists. Once again we had a wonderful meal, at a reasonable price, in a setting full of atmosphere. Don't miss it.

My husband and I have been coming to the Parsonage Inn on and off for about 16 years now. We love everything about it from the Innkeepers, Liz and Ian, to the fabulous breakfasts prepared by Liz. The inside and outside of the Inn is impeccably clean. The breakfasts are totally filling and delicious! Liz and Ian have been running this Inn for more than 20 years and it shows in everything they do. We will absolutely be back!

Room Tip: Our favorite room is the Barn.

The Parsonage Inn
Cape Cod

A bit of heaven awaits
you at the parsonage.
A colorful garden,
majestic maple,
songbirds all around.

Liz and Ian welcome you
to their historic inn.
Meticulous,
soothing comfort, ambiance.


Breakfast on the terrace,
deliciously prepared
with flair.
Soft piano music from inside.

Thought in every detail
to cater to your whim.
Help where to sight see,
hike or bike,
where to view romantic sunsets
or find something good to eat.

A glass of sherry,
sea breeze through lace curtains,
a good book
wait to lull you off to sleep.

We had heard that the welcome on Cape Cod was unique but didn't believe it until we stayed for a few days at The Parsonage Inn at East Orleans on Cape Cod with Liz and Ian.
The room was just like home from home with every amenity you could wish for and the Inn is set in the delightful backdrop of Cape Cod which is a truly beautiful part of Massachusetts and has a quaint colonial feel. The breakfasts deserve a special mention and were a real start to the day. If you want to make a stay on The Cape we don't think you could make a better choice. Warm friendly hosts, stunning environment, courteous locals and unbelievably cheap petrol (gas) for our rental car makes this another location we want to visit again.

Room Tip: None, they're all very good.

The inn is clean and comfortable. Liz and Ian are very attentive and personable, offering good restaurant advice and superb service. The breakfasts had something for everyone's taste and all homemade. At the end of our weekend we felt as though we were leaving 2 good friends. We love the cape and look forward to visiting the Parsonage Inn again and again.
