Such A Delightful B&B

5 on July 13, 2014

Such a delightful B&B! The house was meticulous and furnished with antiques,books, magazines for the guests to enjoy.The owners were so hospitable and welcoming and always willing to accommodate without being intrusive.Breakfast was very satisfying and delicious served on a porch overlooking the gardens. Plenty of comfortable chairs in the yard and gardens. Could only stay two nights but wished it could have been longer. Book early!

I was lucky enough to stay here twice during the month of October, 2013. Each time I came away thinking that Rick and Tom are a great team and I couldn't think of even one suggestion to make their B & B more enjoyable. They have thought of everything to make their guests feel comfortable and welcome. I can hardly wait to return. You will not be disappointed if you choose to stay here and I know you would want to return again and again.

Rick and have done it right!! I have stayed in many B&B's around the country (and Europe).....this is one of the finest! What a great house, super rooms and the breakfast', is what comes to mind. The house is centrally located on the cape, seems like we were only minutes from everywhere we wanted to go. Tom and Rick were so very helpful with places to go, dinners and anything that one might need. My wife and I will be back for sure on our next trip to the area. Thanks guys!!

A lovely place to stay in Cape Cod

We had a wonderful time at Captain Kelley House. We really felt at home, loved Rick and Tom breakfasts and their constant effort to make our stay so unique. Thank you guys!

Warm and friendly

This B&B is more than a place to stay. It's a home. The rooms are beautiful and the location is great, but what makes it so special is the warmth Rick and Tom generate. The "home" has a heart center that spreads throughout the perfectly appointed house. I'm not much of a breakfast person, but I really looked forward to the breakfasts and to chatting with other guests. I highly recommend this place.

The Best B & B in Cape Cod!

5 on June 05, 2012

We had the best experience at our stay at the Captain David Kelley House. The rooms are beautifully decorated and so clean and comfortable, each with their own bathroom. It is the best of both worlds you get a feel of old world charm with a modern look and modern conveniences. The owners Rick and Tom are the two most wonderful people you will ever meet, they are funny, warm, caring and hospitable. You can tell that they truly love what they do, they were always available and helpful. The breakfast is awesome, it's a 3 course meal with the most amazingly delicious scones that you will ever have. It was our first time in Cape Cod and it rained all week, but because we stayed at the CDKH with Rick and Tom we ended up having the best time ever. We loved our stay so much that we are making it an annual tradition. We recommended it without hesitation!!!

Enjoyed Everything About Our Stay

5 on May 01, 2012

My wife and I really enjoyed our stay at the CDK House. Everything was perfect. The house is pleasantly located in the small, quiet but well-located town of Centerville. Pleasing lawns and shrubbery set off the property. Although on Main Street, traffic is not an issue. The house itself is tastefully, attractively and generously decorated. Our room was elegantly appointed, and included all desirable amenities. There are plenty of enjoyable places to sit and relax, in the living room, the screened porches and a large sun deck in the rear. Our host Tom was most gracious and very helpful. The breakfast quality was up to the other excellent house standards, and you will no doubt be invited to try their own tasty scones. Try going off-season to catch a real bargain. Their website gives a very good representative impression of this real find of a B&B.

A haven

Stayed for three nights in January 2012. The room was beautiful, the bed was very comfortable, and the breakfast was absolutely delicious. Rick and Tom are lovely, friendly, generous hosts. I wish I could have stayed longer.

2nd tgime guests

My husband and I have had the privilege to staying at this wonderful establishment twice. Both visits have been a joy. The home is so comfortable and pleasant to visit. Rick and Tom have really mastered all the challenges that come with running a Bed and Breakfast. Breakfasts were delicious and the hosts extremely entertaining with their scone wars!! We will definitely be back as soon as possible.

Our First B & B......

5 on August 26, 2011

We LOVED every minute of our stay here! Since it was our first stay at a B & B, we didn't know what to actually expect - but we did know what we wanted it to be. Tom and Rick did an excellent job making us feel so comfortable, and the breakfasts were amazing. Thank you, thank you......we will see you soon (We think Tom and Rick attract only nice people to their inn - everyone was so friendly and fun.) All the best, Debbie & Joe Pecorello
