The Shady Hollow Inn
Ranked #2 of 3 South Dennis B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 9, 2012

We had the most wonderful time staying here. The food was amazing; a three-course breakfast every morning, with changing muffins and vegan items like tofu scramble and french toast. Gary and Beth were incredibly friendly and helpful. We took our bikes, and were given directions and maps to help us find bike routes to beaches and nice places to ride. When we left, we were already talking about how much we would love to go and stay again. We were in the smallest room, but it was lovely and well equipped. Overall, just a wonderful place to stay.

My wife and I booked a room at the The Shady Hollow Inn for the Memorial Day weekend. From the moment we entered the house we knew that we were not only in a wonderful home but in an environmentally safe one. We usually find it challenging to travel due to our sensitivity to chemicals.The Shady Hollow was a safe haven for us, with no potpourri, no scented candles, no formaldehyde-laden carpets, no residue from harsh detergents on the sheets. Everything was sweet and clean.

The home was lovely in every way. Beth and Gary told us that the past owner was a master carpenter who lovingly restored the house which is over two hundred years old. The rooms have beautiful dimensions, wide board floors and great light as well as classic mission style furnishings.

Gary is developing the property to augment the beautiful flower gardens with organically-grown herb and vegetable gardens. He teaches at a culinary institute and the brunches showcase his culinary mastery. As the mornings were clear we were able to take our breakfast outside and enjoy the view. Both Beth and Gary were gracious hosts, filling us in on local history and inside information on restaurants and the best beaches.

We heartily recommend The Shady Hollow Inn to anyone looking for a peaceful and environmentally safe B&B on the Cape.

Room Tip: We stayed on the 2nd floor in The Seabreeze and enjoyed the privacy and the oversized bathroom.

I booked two nightsat this great B&B. We were so impressed we stayed another evening. Mr. Albert is the perfect host. He is informative and and helpful about seeing the best places in the area. He gave us some wonderful pointers on places to eat as well. South Dennis is a great location for discovering the eastern Cape. Each morning the breakfast wheter it be french toast or waffles was freshly cooked and beautifully prepared. The house is in perfect order. Our room was comfortable (first floor walk up) and had AC even though we didn't really have to use it. There is a lovely seating area outside the Inn where one can relax and read. We will return in the future. The only negative point is the busy road near the B&B which can get quite noisy in the mornings.

Just had to say what a wonderful time we had at Shady Hollow Inn. The house was very cute, with a beautiful backyard where we drank our tea in the morning. Our vegan breakfast was delicious, especially the muffins! It was wonderful to be able to have a full vegan breakfast each morning. Beth & Gary were very accommodating and especially helpful in planning activities in the Cape. I can't wait to go back next year when there is more time to explore Cape Cod!

Beth and Gary are perfect hosts! They accommodated our requests and they cooked a most delicious vegan breakfast for us. They are not a vegetarian Bed and Breakfast, per say. YET, they mastered cooking us a decadent meal. The house is very comfortable, welcoming and clean. They are knowledgeable about the area and all around lovely people!

This was my first time staying at the Shady Hollow Inn and I can't say enough good things about it. The Inn is beautifully decorated and the Inn Keepers are so delightful....not to mention the EXCELLENT food! Everything was very clean, quiet, and peaceful.

I will definitely be back again next year and HIGHLY recommend the Inn!

My husband and I were just absolutely thrilled with our stay for our anniversary several years ago and have been meaning to go back. The breakfasts were some of the best we have ever been served and we even had dinner cooked for us (for an extra fee) one night, which was better than we would have had at a restaurant. The vacation was just wonderful and the inn in beautiful - the rooms spacious and decorated in a cozy but more modern style (unlike the horrible Victorian nonsense so often found in B&Bs) - cannot wait to go back.
