3 friends and I stayed at the Windfall House this past weekend. We stayed in the Hans Hoffman suite, which was perfect for our group. Caleb was a fantastic host, who helped us with a good dinner recommendation, even gave us a flashlight to walk the short distance safely. We happened to be the only guests in the B&B that...

We had a 1 night stay and loved every minute. A very clean and well presented property. We were in the Robert Motherwell Suite.

We stayed in the Hans Hoffman Suite which is ideal for family with children. We had our own entrance and outdoor patio. Caleb is a great and gracious host- serving scrumptious breakfasts! The downstairs bedroom is ideal for an elderly couple. It has easy access and no stairs. Thanks for making our short vacation a memorable one.

This was such a different place but very special. Caleb, who welcomed us and who we saw most, was so lovely! Nothing was too much trouble and his cooking was amazing. Wine and beer were available to guests in the afternoon/evening and the homecooked breakfasts (by Caleb) were tailored to guests' preferences. We were in the Hans Hoffman suite, with...

We stayed for just one night at Windfall House in June. It was an absolute delight. Caleb was so hospitable and welcoming. As we had limited time (it was the last days of our holiday) Caleb was really helpful in suggesting where we could visit to get a good flavour of Cape Cod and also where to visit on our...

My family loved this B&B. I have never stayed at a bed & breakfast that had 2 bedrooms & a private entrance! The kids loved it! Owner was very welcoming & kind. I would recomend The Windfall House to everyone. So glad we had the chance to stay there this past 4th of July

We stayed here for just one night in August. It is a beautiful home, lovingly cared for with friendly, generous hosts. I think the glass of wine when you want it is just about the nicest thing because you instantly feel relaxed and welcome. I adored the artwork throughout the house. No complaints other than our room was small and...

We've just returned form a last minute overnight stay at the Windfall.The early 19th century house is both charming and comfortable. We stayed in the two-room Hans Hoffman suite in the back of the house. It requires going up a flight of exterior stairs but rewards with a tranquil and private setting. It is spacious enough for four people and...

We stayed at the Windfall House last week. It was a wonderful experience. Quaint, comfortable, and a quiet location. They had everything covered from wine set out in the late afternoon till evening, along with beer. The breakfast spreads were amazing, home cooked and different both mornings. My favorite part for sure! They also assisted with reservations, directions and great...
