2 nights in late October for 2 of us. Comfortable place, super beach location, good breakfasts on the sun porch and an inviting communal living room with fire place. Watched sun rise from their beach, super view. Excellent detailed orientation tour when we arrived.
If you like the cape in off season, this is the place for you. Wonderful breakfast with fantastic ocean side view. We met many interesting people. All the staff were wonderful. Variety of rooms to choose from. We will be back.
We couldn't say one thing negative about By The Sea B&B! Our first impression was that it was very clean! It was also very comfortable, quaint & picturesque being right on the ocean. The staff was extremely nice & very accommodating! Their breakfast was so delicious & filling. It was our first time to Cape Cod & staying at the B&B just made our trip there even better! We are definitely returning next Fall!
My husband & I celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary at 'By the Sea' and enjoyed every minute. So relaxing! Loved the private beach. Flowers & champagne in room upon arrival - compliments of the staff- what a pleasant surprise! Hope to go back sooner rather than later. Thanks for a wonderful memory.
It had been two years since we have been here. We took a long weekend to celebrate our 25th anniversary and we had a beautiful time. This September we stayed a week. We had such a wonderful time that we booked next year while we were still there. All staff are wonderful, rooms are immaculate, and breakfast is so filling we couldn't eat lunch. Thank you chefs. After breakfast, we would step out onto the beach and take a long walk and went swimming every day. We met some wonderful people from near and as far away as Germany. My husband and I can't say enough about By The Sea and anyone who needs a relaxing place to stay, this is it! Jeff and Andrea Rose, western, MA
My husband and I stayed here for our 20th anniversary. Upon arrival there were roses, chocolates, champagne and a card from Helen, the owner. The room (307) was bright and cozy and overlooked the beach. We were lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. The room was a bit dusty, we had to remove cobwebs from the ceiling fan and the walls but the rest of the room was very clean. My only complaint about the room was that the pillows were VERY flat. I don't think people understand the value of a good pillow! Breakfast each morning was incredible. There are 2 chefs on the property making the family's recipes and they do a fabulous job. Helen and her staff provide absolutely everything you may need. If you can't find something just ask. This B&B has been around for a very long time and it just keeps improving. There are more modern, newer places to stay on the beach, but if you want to stay in a place where you feel like you are visiting family, you MUST choose By The Sea!
We had spent weeks looking for the right B&B in Cape Cod for our 40th anniversary get away and we were extremely pleased with our selection of By the Sea. Fantastic location and direct access to the beach. Hostess was very helpful in pointing out points of interest and places to eat. The morning breakfast on the porch was a wonderful way to start the day. We would definitely recommend to anyone.
The staff at By the Sea was incredibly fun and helpful. They informed us of attractions and things we could do in the area. The food was amazing, we couldn't wait to see what would be served for breakfast the next day. Our daughter is vegetarian, and they offered her options, made to order! The view and close proximity to the beach really spoiled us; we had our own private beach, complete with all beach equipment! An excellent choice for a vacation in Cape Cod. We will be returning!
Location couldn't be better. Ocean right at door. Private beach wonderful. Don't need to bring anything to beach. Chairs, chase, umbrella, towels, table all provided. Breakfast out of this world. We didn't need to eat until dinner. Staff friendly and helpful. Can't wait to go back again--very relaxing.
This Bed & Breakfast is amazing! The staff is so nice and welcoming, the Breakfast is really, really good. The rooms are so clean and nice, we also had a wonderful ocean view in room 307. If you want to stay at the Cape you definitely should stay at that B&B! :-)
My fiancee and I were married on the beach the evening we arrived! The beach, the guest accommodations, the breakfasts were great! We were especially blessed by the warm, friendly, and loving attitudes of the office staff. We switched rooms midway thru our stay. If you are planning a visit, be aware that the third floor rooms (at least the one we were assigned) are considerably smaller - to the point of feeling cramped - than the 2nd floor rooms.
very responsive made my special request for breakfast just plain eggs without having to ask twice it would have been nice to know before hand that no in room amenities like shampoo, body lotion shower caps were not available. lovely staff beautiful beach
"By the sea" guests is a lovely B&B on the southern coast of Cape Cod and a great starting point for whatever you're up to on the cape. The room we stayed in was small, but very clean and had nice furniture and a very comfortable bed. I slept like a log every night. Breakfast is different every day and very delicious and the owners and employees are very nice people who know a lot about the area and can basically tell you everything you need to know about Cape Cod. I would definitely stay there again!
This was our second visit and it was as wonderful as the first one 3 years ago. The rooms are close together - but we never heard any "noise" thru the walls. The breakfasts were filling and offered a variety for everyone. Our favorite part is that you can always get sweets or fruit all during the day and evening. The Keurig coffee machine is a great addition. The only drawback (certainly minor) was that other than soap, there were no toiletries in the room. We had to go to CVS to buy shampoo and handcream.
We love B&Bs and this is our very favorite. Staff is friendly and helpful. Inn is so sparkling I always want to go home and CLEAN! Beds are very comfortable, a feature often overlooked. There are always fruit, treats and coffee or tea available. A bountiful breakfast is served on the porch overlooking the private beach and ocean. Great dining is a short walk away, and By The Sea is centrally located for Cape exploring!
It was our first trip to Cape Cod and we absolutely loved it! Your B&B is a friendly and beautiful little slice of heaven. The entire staff was super friendly, and the breakfasts overlooking the beach were delicious and memorable. Thanks for running a first rate bed and breakfast. We hope to be back in the future.
On our trip we had a short stay (2 days) at the B&B. The family is very friendly and helpfull. It's a beautyfull place. It was a pitty we had a scedule, so we couldn't stay longer. The breakfast was outstanding. The rooms are a little bit small, but very cute. It's a pitty that the price for a crib is 15 dollar a night. We definitly would go back to this B&B!
Looking at the review it might look that it was not that good. But the fact is that we have stayed at By The Sea two times before and we know it is good and this third time it kept the promise since before and met our expectations. In fact you can value our stay by the fact that it was the 3rd time and by the fact that we say THANK YOU to the inn keepers and the staff.
We've stayed at many B&B's, and this is now one of our favorites. The staff was so helpful and friendly; the breakfasts were wonderful; the beds so comfy (loved the soft, soft sheets and towels), and it was spotless. What more can you ask for! It's always fun to meet so many new people from all over the US and more.
Our family had stayed at By The Sea for many years when I was young until my late 20's. Now I have returned with my family. By The Sea will always hold a special place in our families heart. Helen is a wonderful hostess and leader of a fine team of wonderful working professionals. Everything is great, the rooms, breakfast, little treats left for guests and the attention to every detail. LOVE the View! This is the best place on the entire Cape!
This was our first (and hopefully not our last) visit to this lovely establishment. Not knowing what to expect, we ventured forth. What a genuinely delightful surprise. From the time we entered the front door and four days later said our final goodbye, we had nothing but accolades for staff and surroundings. Breakfasts are unbeleivably creative and delicious. Would recommend without hesitation.
Have returned 5x's. Staff treats you like family and looks out for all your needs. Comfortable accommodations, wonderful bfast, and centrally located on Cape with a private beach. Perfect!
