Clapp's Guest House
Ranked #7 of 8 Harwich Port B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 6, 2013

We had a family wedding in Harwichport and rented five rooms at Clapp's Guest House. We loved our accommodations. The rooms were cozy and comfortable and Carl and Nancy are so welcoming. There is a full kitchen in the back house and an outdoor kitchen with picnic tables so is very convenient for a family. The grounds are very pretty -- lovely flowers and comfortable chairs scattered around for relaxing as well as a hammock nestled in the trees. The location is great -- short walk to beautiful beach (warm water) and stores/restaurants.
We enjoyed it so much that my husband and I returned two weeks later for our own little getaway at this charming inn.

Two night stay at this very authentic Cape home hosted by Carl and Nancy. Very peaceful neighborhood a short walk to beach and main street establishments including a fabulous little breakfast place with outstanding pastries. The room was very comfortable and had everything necessary for our stay. The morning coffee was delicious and the area perfect for a nice morning jog. The Cape Cod Rail Trail is also nearby. A swimming pool is also available, but We did not have a chance to enjoy it. If you are looking for a nice peaceful place to stay on the Cape, this is it. We will gladly make this our destination when on Cape Cod.

Room Tip: There are rooms in both the main house and a separate building. We stayed in the main house which ha...

We have been happily vacationing at Clapp’s Guest House for more than 20 years.
Hosts Nancy and Carl are warm, welcoming people, glad to share information about special things to do on Cape Cod. We relax in the yard, enjoying peace and quiet and beautiful flowers.
It is an easy walk to beaches, shops, and a variety of good dining options. To us, Clapp’s is the real Cape Cod.

Our several day stay started off with a warm greeting from Nancy and Carl (owners). Our room was great! Nice big shower stall, comfy sitting area, and very welcomed microwave and fridge :) The information books and binder of info Nancy and Carl had in the room were also a great help! The scenery was captivating, the experience alone was very much of the Cape Cod ambiance, only to say that steps away from the guest house itself was the beach, many shops, good food, and great wine experiences. Very enjoyful! For those who have not experienced it yet, make it a point to gather yourself at the Clapp Guest House.

We recently stayed at Clapp's Guest House in Harwich Port. Our rooms in the Main House were cozy and clean and the location was great. We walked to the beach, George's for pizza, Bonnatt's bakery for breakfast and walked around several shops in town. Thank you, Carl and Nancy. We'll be back.

Room Tip: They have a great web page which shows each room.

We stayed there for 3 nights and really liked that place. Yes, rooms are old, kind of durty and definatelly this is not the 5star hotel style. But that's OK, you are close to the ocean and that feels like 100 years old cheap never been remodeled vacation hous, but priced acordingly.
What is really ruin your time - the owners. Nancy especially. She is got a really unpredictable and unexceptable personality! She could storm into your room without any notes and scream without any reason. And that's what ruined our stay in there.

This place is in a great location... But that's the only thing it has going for it! The rooms are dingy and dirty. The sheets were full of sand and makeup stains and none of the linens were complete sets. The linens were also super worn. The mattress was lumpy and I am sure at least 30 years old! The bathrooms had grime as well.

The old couple that own the inn are eccentric and odd. They have lots of rules and weird notes throughout the room as to what you can and cannot do. (ex. Take short showers, drink wine but don't spill, etc...)

Lastly the shared kitchen is unsightly. I would never cook there even if you paid me!

Stay away

I am sad that showing acts of kindness and generosity and caring is considered being eccentric and odd. This reviewer arrived well before check-in time but we welcomed her and made early registration possible. Learning it was her mother's birthday, I made a special shell ornament for her. It was never acknowledged nor were the fresh garden vegetables we give our guests. Knowing the one night reservation was for two women I personally selected a feminine set of sheets which is a cream colored fitted sheet and pastel print top sheet. That's a set, not a mismatch!

Kindness, generosity and caring will always be the cornerstone of our relationship with our guests.
