“Suberb”
Reviewed August 20, 2009

We booked into Saltwinds at the last moment after reviewing an incredibly bad RCI property we had originally booked in Hyannis.

Craig and Ginny made us feel like family rather than guests; they took ALL the hassle away from ALL the tour options, recommending a wide variety of venues and trips from both personal and guest recommendations. Nothing was too much trouble.

One's holiday experience when travelling solo to an area one doesn't know - and when one is "time challenged" can be made or broken by even one bad experience as regards restaurants or tour options. We only had 4 days to visit in the area before moving on and it was important to "squeeze" the very best out of everything Cape Cod and it's environs had to offer.
Craig even ferried us to and from the Port for ferry trips thus saving us the bother of finding our way there and parking plus he had discount vouchers for the ferry itself.

More importantly both Craig and Ginny seemed to genuinely enjoy hosting guests - we enjoyed many an interesting chat, particularly with Craig who on the day of our stay talked us through all the options for trips and restaurants in the area -it was like having one's own personal concierge.

Oh and a very important by the way, breakfasts were delicious and imaginative and we found ourselves looking forward to looking at the breakfast blackboard each morning to see what treat was in store once again. Breakfast like everything else was always served with smile and a friendly word from whomever served us. The room was spotless and "made up" every day

Thanks - thoroughly enjoyable stay all round with not a wasted minute

We stayed here for three nights during the last week of July 2009.

The service provided by Craig and Ginny, the owners of the B & B, as well as the relaxed atmosphere, is probably the best part of the B & B. We felt relaxed the moment we stepped foot onto the B & B, which is located on a quiet street in Hyannis. Craig came to greet us right away and we were taken to our room. Ginny and Craig are very friendly and know the area like the palm of their hands. They were quick to provide us with suggestions on places to go and restaurants to dine in. The service here was excellent, and made our vacation more pleasant and stress-free.

The rooms are extremely clean, and being a B & B, made you feel like you were at home. The rooms are so separate from one another, each with their own bathroom, so you always had extreme privacy. Unlike other B & Bs we've gone to, you don't feel like you're inside someone else's home. It's more like you have your own separate (yet small) unit within a home. There was a bar fridge and microwave in the room. We used the BBQ, and Ginny kindly offered us real plates instead of the paper ones we had. There's also plenty of ourtdoor seating all around the front and backyard, to just sit or eat a meal. You can also use their indoor seating area, which is also spacious and pleasant. Each night we sat in the back and had a glass of wine in the backyard deck, facing nothing but trees and New England flowers and bushes.

The B & B is very close to the beach, maybe a 5 minute walk at most (we're slow walkers). We carried our beach chairs and towels, which the B & B provides. This easily saved us $15 per day, which is the cost to park your car at the beach at the end of the road.

Main Street is also within walking distance, as are many restaurants and other amenities. We went to the Island Merchant one night, which had great food and live entertainment (Craig's excellent suggestion).

Lastly, the breakfast they provide is excellent, and would cost you, with coffee and juice, no less than $30 for two people elsewhere. We had french toast and fruit on day one; omletes with beef and fruit on day two; and pancakes and fruit and bacon on day three. However, there was always two choices for breakfast.

Overall, this B & B is very relaxing, pleasant, and affordable. By the time you add up all your savings from the breakfast, not having to pay for beach parking, free use of beach towels and beach chairs, having a grill to make your meals at home, and not having to pay for parking at the ferry terminal, you end up getting a bargain. You also get access to really kind and knowledgeable innkeepers, who did everything they could for us during our stay.

We will most certainly be back. Thanks again, Ginny and Craig!

This was an overdue vacation to get away from the busy hectic city, but not have to fly!!!! The Salt Winds BB was relaxing, clean, walk a private (not crowded beach with life guards). The inground pool was awesome for our kids to enjoy!

To get up and walk into a homemade delcious breakfast is PRICELESS!

This was our second stay at the Salt Winds and consider it the best place to stay in Hyannis. Cozy, comfortable and immaculate, the B&B is in an excellent location close to beaches, shopping and attractions, many within walking distance, although hosts Ginny and Craig willingly offer rides if you want or need them. Their knowledge of the area allows them to make excellent recommendations for activities and restaurants. They are cordial and fun and so attentive to our every need. The pool and tranquil setting were so nice, the food was delicious. It was definitely a wonderful experience, and we look forward to going back.

Had the pleasure of visiting the Cape and staying with Ginny & Craig at the Saltwinds. Our room was fresh and inviting (and spotless). Our hosts were terrific...Ginny is a wonderful cook; our breakfast was delicious, certainly not skimpy. The staff were pleasant and fun to talk to. We look forward to coming back in September when the crowds thin. Would definitely stay at Saltwinds again and again!

What a wonderful experience! The rooms are beautifully decorated, very warm and inviting. The full breakfast surpassed my expectations, with everything tasting fresh and homemade. After breakfast, we enjoyed a short walk to an ocean beach and afternoons were spent lazily poolside. Our hosts were quick to respond to our evey need. I would highly recommend the Salt Winds B&B for your next Cape Cod visit!
