Just came back from 4 nights at Parsonage Inn. It is a wonderful place, 1.6 miles walk down the road to the beach with a wonderful market across for anything you may need. Liz and Ian are the best kind of B&B hosts, thoughtful and helpful without being intrusive, most amazing they address you by name making the visit even more special. The Inn is a wonderful old building with a central living room, the best in the world breakfast is served in the dining room or outside if the weather is good. Spending time reading in the Aidronack chairs located on the property was an added treat. The Parsonage Inn is centrally located so visiting the other cape towns is easy. I would recommend this B&B and give it 5 stars.

Beautiful grounds, well maintained, lovingly cared for property. We so loved reading outside enjoying the groupings of adirondack chairs scattered throughout the space. We enjoyed the mile and a half walk down to Nauset Beach and couldn't have been happier with the Inn's location across from an adorable market ready to supply your picnic, coffee and lobster needs.

While the rooms are well-kept, clean and spare no amenities, the real reason to stay at the Parsonage Inn is because of Ian & Liz. They greet you by name each morning as they serve you a DELICIOUS home cooked breakfast that includes both a buffet and a warm made to order entree that changes each day. They are warm and personable with a lovely sense of humor and know the perfect balance of conscientious helpful host while giving you space to enjoy your holiday. We loved having breakfast on the sunny brick patio and loved the beautiful garden. I have slept in three different rooms and was struck by the very comfortable beds in each one.

Lastly, they treat you to delicious home baked cookies in the afternoon - a lovely ending to a fabulous stay!

My wife and I have stayed at the Parsonage about 10 times and we have never been disappointed. Ian and Liz, the owners, are friendly without being obtrusive. They genuinely seem interested in their guests, and have a good sense of humor. The Inn is quaint and the breakfasts are outstanding. Sherry and home baked cookies are available in the living room each day. Since Cape Cod is an ideal place to be for a summer vacation and the location of the New England Educational Institute, my wife and I will probably return for years to come, and will make sure that we are booked at the Parsonage.

Staying at the Parsonage Inn for five days was one the best experiences I have ever had at a B and B. Liz and Ian are the Innkeepers. What they do is to make you feel welcome and at home from the first moment you arrive. The rooms are decorated with the guests in mind to be comfortable, homey, and convenient. The rooms are clean and tidy.
Breakfast at the Parsonage is a treat in and of itself. Liz's offers a different and yummy meal each morning. (She has even published a cookbook with some of her favorite recipes that you will be sure to want to buy.) Ian is the perfect host. His recommendations for restaurants can't be beat!
Anyone searching for a perfect get away would be wise to stay at the Parsonage Inn.

The Parsonage Inn is a homey, comfortable inn in Orleans. Ian and Elizabeth provided both the friendly camaraderie and professional service that made the visit special. They both went the extra mile providing recommendations, opinions and 'insider secrets" that helped us plan our days and save money!

We stayed for a week in mid-June, just before the high-season began. Luckily for us, the beaches were not charging the daily parking fee ($10-$15/day) so we were able to see most of the national seashore inexpensively. Being a vacation destination, restaurants were pricey, but our room had a small kitchenette, where we stocked up on cheese, crackers and wine, and had a few cozy evenings relaxing in our sitting area.

The breakfasts were light and wonderfully homey, portions were enough to keep us going most of the day until late afternoon. Especially delicious was the quiche! Fresh fruit, juice and cereal was always available in the morning.

Their genuine concern for our visit was evident. When we were out all day, Ian never failed to greet us upon our return and ask about our day. Liz was spot-on with her suggestions and recommendations. By the end of our trip we felt we were staying with old friends.

This is a gem. It is located near Rtes 6 and 6A, about halfway up the Cape, making it a wonderful "base camp" to visit the many towns on the Cape. Our room was sized well with a spacious closet and bathroom. Even with a fully booked Inn, the rooms were quiet lending to a wonderful night's sleep. This is a very comfortable and clean B&B. Ian and Liz were charming and helpful. Breakfasts were delicious, plentiful, and creative. A perfect experience!

We spent the last weekend in May at the Parsonage Inn run by a charming couple, Liz and Ian. There was not a detail that they did not attend from clean and pleasent accomodations, stocked with those items a traveler may forget to pack to the beatifully landscaped property. Ian and Liz provided a wonderful breakfast, great directions, and wonderful conversation. They are the icing on the delectable cake that is Cape Cod. Liz a wonderful pianist and her husband Ian add to the charm and warmth of this beautiful vacation spot. Bravo!
