what a place
sur octobre 04, 2014
This is by far the best, The innkeeper is very friendly and helpful, the room was warm and very clean. You can spend hours looking at all the neat stuff and still not see it all, so it will require a return trip for sure. Plus Bob who is our cocker was celebrating his birthday and had a wonderful time. The added bonus aside from the antique cars is of course the cats . See you soon!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks and now you have to come again after you wrote telling me about the books you wrote and especially about Bob. I have that book now, so at least Bob the pup has to come back and 'stamp' his footprint on the book :-)
Great dog friendly bed and breakfast
sur mai 26, 2014
We enjoyed our stay at the Simmons Homestead Inn and will definitely return. It's one of the few dog friendly inns on the Cape. The rooms were cute and cozy, the breakfasts good and plentiful, and the staff very helpful. We stayed in the Dog Room, which was cute but small.

I'm glad your whole gang had a great time. About half our guests have dogs and they seem more caring. Probably why they travel together. And the guest that don't have dogs like it when the others care about the pups and the pus care about the people. Nice combo. And yes, the dog room is our smallest, but that is why it is $20 a night less than other queens. But all the rooms are fun. And thanks to you for coming!
Best inn on Cape Cod for a great romantic get-a-way!
sur mai 01, 2014
Simmons Homestead Inn is simply the best place to stay on Cape Cod. The innkeeper is very accommodating and wonderful. The rooms are beautiful and our bed was extremely comfortable! The living room is gorgeous with a brilliant, working fireplace. The free breakfast is delicious and includes omelets, coffee cake and pancakes. Coffee and tea, fresh and hot, were always available in the dining room.
Staying here in Hyannis Port for the last few days, and we don't want to leave. The weather has been perfect, so we managed to go bike riding and photo touring. Staying at an old captain’s house, the Simmons Homestead Inn, which has been updated and has add-ons? Like several sheds / barns that house classic sports cars, all red in color.
Bill is the Innkeeper, an older gentleman, who cares for the cars and the guests here. In the morning, you can spot him early, making coffee and preparing the bountiful breakfast. One day it was pancakes filled with fresh berries, the next day he made us omelets with sausage and fruit. I liked the very large common area / living room with a nice fireplace and windows overlooking the lawn and pond out back.
Bedrooms are spacious, and have been updated, as I could easily tell that the bathroom was an add-ton, and not part of the original home. I don’t know if it’s the salt-air, or the comfortable bed, but we slept well and long. It was nice to sleep late, and not have to do anything I didn’t want to do on this mini-vacation on the coast. Cape Cod is really beautiful at this time of year, and we managed to capture some nice pictures (that’s me in front of one of the innkeeper’s many red sports cars).
We whole-heartily recommend the Simmons Homestead as your inn to stay while on Cape Cod. We made the right choice, as you will too! It doesn’t get any better as a romantic get-a-way, or a family vacation spot, as the near-by beaches are perfect for walking.
Room Tip: Corner rooms are spacious, and have quick access to the yard.

Whimsy with red highlights
sur janvier 27, 2014
Looking for a place to stay with a bit of whimsy that doesn't take itself too seriously but still cares for you and your getaway needs? What a great "base of operation" - Bill is a great tour guide and April knows all the places where locals hang. There is something for everyone: an historic sea captain's house, dogs welcome, many cats around (but not in the inn), lots of color, and a barn full of 50+ shiny red post-1950s cars. What's not to love?
Friendly and helpful- a home away from home
sur janvier 27, 2014
The inn is a large comfortable, relaxing old farmhouse. Bill was very helpful upon our arrival, suggesting activities and locations to bring our dog and where to go for dinner. The inn is decorated with a wide variety of interesting collectables, and every room has its own unique theme and were clean and stocked with plenty of towels and blankets. Our dog was welcome and it was offered to us to leave him in the room or take him-'whatever we would normally do at home'. Thank you!
Great Pet Friendly B&B
sur novembre 05, 2013
We travel with our golden retriever whenever we can so we were thrilled to find this wonderful B&B on the Cape. Bill and his staff are so friendly and accommodating. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The grounds are a great place to relax and play with your dog. Beautiful grassy lawns to explore, hammocks, sitting porches. Bill fixed us a great breakfast of an omelet, sausage, fresh fruit and some nice bread. He has an amazing car collection on the property called Toad Hall that was a nice surprise as well. Bill & his staff are genuinely interested in you and your comfort & experience. They are a wealth of knowledge. We will definitely be back.
Dog Friendly Cape Haven
sur septembre 04, 2013
We travel with our beagle-mix (Tessie) whenever possible. That's really tough to do on the Cape during the summer. Bill and the Simmons Homestead Inn to the rescue!
The Inn is very cozy (plus it's dog friendly!), but the thing that puts the icing on the top is Bill. He was very welcoming and accommodated us as if we were family. April was great, too, with recommendations on things to do AND places to eat that are dog friendly.
The room we stayed in (Dog Room) was small, but comfortable. It was right on the porch, so if you're a light sleeper it might not work for you but there are 12 other rooms that more than likely will. The car museum is pretty incredible, too!
Wonderful Inn in Hyannis
sur août 29, 2013
We loved our stay at the Simmons Homestead Inn. Although we have been to the Cape many times, this was our first time (and not the last) at this B&B. Bill Putnam, the innkeeper, was very accommodating to our needs, and helped us to feel relaxed and comfortable. The room was very clean and quiet, and we thoroughly enjoyed the generous and delicious breakfast provided. Additionally, Mr. Putnam has an incredible classic sports car collection (over 50) that we marveled at. This is one place that we would absolutely recommend to our friends.
I don't like B&B's but...

...this one is a keeper. At the last minute we found out that we needed to bring our family dog with us on a short (3 day) vacation to Cape Cod. All of the pet-friendly hotels were booked so, reluctantly, we booked the SH Inn. Bill, the owner, does everything he can to make the stay feel comfortable for guests. Beach towels, restaurant guides and menus, even a wine hour are all provided free of charge. There are also bottled water and soft drinks provided free of charge, as well as small refrigerators for guests' personal use.
We stayed in room number 1, the busiest decor of the many rooms we toured. It has a small anteroom where a pull out bed for my son made this a great value. All of the other rooms were much more tastefully decorated, and each was lovely in its own quirky way. Bill generously gave us the tour before our departure.
My dog was happy, too. He was allowed in every area we were, with the exception of the breakfast room. For those who need their pets with them for breakfast, simply request one of the rooms with a private deck. While Bill won't bring your meal, you can pick it up in the dining room and bring it back.
The rooms are all air-conditioned, but there is a charge for using them. While we did not need it during this trip, it was comforting to know that it was there. The nominal charge of $10 per night is reasonable if the night is muggy.
Bill also hosts an antique car museum on the premises and guests receive a free tour. Walking distance to Keyes Beach in Hyannis is nice, but I prefer the beaches of West Yarmouth.
We will definitely be returning.

This was our first time staying at a B&B. The location was great. The yard, porch & hammocks were wonderful. The food was average and the room itself needed a little updating. We are hooked now on B&Bs. Feels more like home.
