An amazing, beautiful inn!!! The hosts, Pamela and Sandra, are wonderful, warm and personable and my cousin and I thoroughly visiting with them. We had the room at the end of the property which had a bay window, so we had great views of the sunrises over the water. Their suggestions for dinner were excellent. The breakfasts are delicious and... More

For first time visitors like myself - be informed that finding an Inn directly on the seafront is a rarity. Not only does this Inn offer a seaview, it is also furnished with high quality taste. Where cosy meets elegant, rooms offer most comfortable beds, adequate wardrobe space and lovely bathrooms. The lounge is just lovely with a fireplace and... More

The setting for the Little Inn is beautiful - the gardens, the bay across the street from the Inn, the gathering room, eating breakfast outside - all first class! Our room, Whistler, was smaller than we anticipated and there are no TVs, but the place grows on you in a good way! We loved the peacefulness and quiet of the... More

Many thanks. You are absolutely correct. The Whistler has the appearance of being the smallest room, because if has the eaves over hang. The largest room is the Wianno, which has very high ceilings, or you may like the Knockabout over looking the Bay. Both these rooms have King size beds. I am glad you got used to Little Inn... More

My wife and I have stayed at the Little Inn each year for the past 8 years. Once we found the Little Inn, we have not stayed anywhere else on Cape Cod.

The dining room offers a different hot dish each day, as well as delicious breads, jams, cheeses, fish, figs, tomatoes/cucumbers, fresh fruit and granola.
