This place is everything I imagine when I think of what a B&B should be on Cape Cod! The view was spectacular. Checking in was very convenient and Howard was a wealth of information. The town of Falmoth is a beautiful little place and I loved taking our little walks in the evening. Breakfast was delicious every morning along with cofee and teas and little treats available all day. You really felt like you had the place to yourself. We stayed in the Nobska Point room and had a private entrace. The only fault I could find was the bed was a little uncomfortable. It was a wonderful get away.

This is a remarkable Inn in every way. From the small details in decor to the warm and welcoming staff, The Inn on the Sound is a must stay on Cape Cod. We recently stayed while touring the New England area, and loved it. Howard was more than helpful and supplied us with great recommendations for restaurants and attractions all over the Cape. He is very well informed and an asset to his guests. The rooms were immaculate, the design was beautiful and in perfect taste, and the staff returned it to perfect condition for us to return to after our day of exploring. Breakfast was delicious, with so many options and beautiful fruit displays. The view was breath taking, and I recommend this to anyone who desires excellence in their hotel experience!!

Well am continuing the run of great reviews for Inn on the Sound. Can't fault it. We got there a bit early, met Howard and he gave us a map of the area and went through it with us. Also showed us around, they have a fridge stocked with sodas, coffee and tea if wanted, and little nibbles like cake or shortbread for guests to help themselves to. Nice touch.

Our room did not have a sea view (the other rooms were booked up) but it was still a gorgeous room. Beautifully decorated, with a very comfortable bed and the shower was pretty good too. Also there were robes, which I love to find somewhere I'm staying.

The breakfast was gorgeous. Lots of beautifully prepared fresh fruit, the most amazing croissants I've ever had, and every morning there is a different special of the house. Both were lovely, and a bit different. Salmon souffle Saturday morning and baked french toast Sunday morning. Coffee was good too, and I was able to make myself tea. Lovely fresh o.j. as well.

The only thing I would say that didn't quite fit in with what we wanted was the Inn was a bit away from the main bit of town. We walked in the first night and it was dark and windy and not particularly pleasant. It took a good 40 mins as we went a bit wrong directions wise. We also walked back home as we couldn't find a taxi. It seems people drive everywhere there, so that's what we should have done as well. All this is our own fault can I emphasise. We found a great pizza place which was perfect for Saturday night. We also had gone to Casino Wharf for lunch that day and to the British Beer pub for a drink. We went back to Casino Wharf for dinner on the Saturday night. Food there is good, not incredible but good. and the prices are pretty good too.

If you want a very relaxing weekend in Cape Cod, Inn on the Sound is where to go.

We made our reservations last year in summer after reading the nice reviews on Tripadvisor but had to cancell my trip due to health issue with one of our children. "Howard" the host of this Inn was very understanding and finally we made it there last week. I am glad we did. This is a very nice and clean place to stay. Food is excellent, service is excellent and Howard is an excellent host. We will do it all over again.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms facing the ocean, provide nice view of the ocean

We wanted an ocean view and were not disappointed. Howard and staff were outstanding and keep an immaculate Inn. Accommodations were extremely comfortable and equipped with everything you need. Easy access to the rest of the area, we couldn’t have been more satisfied.

Room Tip: Ocean views are great, but all rooms very comfortable and clean

We've been going to Inn on the Sound for our annual vacation for 7 years now. After having stayed at several other B&Bs (and looked at many, many more), we know for certain it's the best one on the Cape. When you find such a gem you want to keep it a secret, but Howard and Janet are such genuine people, we can't hold back. Nice people who are superb at running a B&B...you just can't beat that combination.

Room Tip: Tips on the best rooms? Hmmm...we have to keep some things a secret! :>)

This is a bit of a belated review - we stayed here some time ago but are just getting round to commenting. We stayed at the Inn on the Sound for three nights during a two week tour of New York, Boston and New England (from Scotland). Great place - very cozy, welcoming, relaxed environment. Great jumping off point for Martha's Vineyard - five minutes walk from the ferry. Several good, friendly restaurants nearby. Breakfast was excellent. Small public area to sit and chill out at the end of the day (free local beer in the fridge!). Couldn't fault anything and would love to go back.
