We spent several days at the Carriage House as part of a three-week New England trip. This Inn was the most charming of all we visited and the Innkeepers were especially wonderful. The food is exceptional, the room was clean and pretty, and the grounds are gorgeous. We will visit again soon.

My girlfriend and I spent three nights in April at the Carriage House Inn and wish we could've stayed longer. Jim and Val were amazing hosts. It was our first time at the Cape, so Jim was very helpful in pointing out the best places to visit and restaurants to go to. Val's cooking was unbelievable and was always a great start to each morning. And did we mention our room? Gorgeous room with plenty of space and sunlight. The beautiful amenities and warm hosts will definitely bring us back for our future trips tot he Cape.

Jim and Val are great! My hubby and I stayed one night, WAY off season (February) - we're preparing to move to Cape Cod, and took a night away from the kids to get "chores" done for the move. Jim was waiting at the door as we drove in. If you want to just settle in to your room, he'll let you. But, if you want a ten minute map tour of the Chatham area, complete with shopping, excursion, and restaurant suggestions, he'll do that too! (I recommend the map tour. Jim knows everything!) Fresh cookies, drinks, snacks waiting. A huge selection of DVDs to borrow if you feel like relaxing in your room with a movie (it was winter, after all). The room was absolutely lovely. Well appointed, smartly decorated, clean, cozy, and private. Attention to detail is obvious. Val's breakfast was delicious. Home cooked goodness meets novel presentation. If a Cape Cod B&B is that great in the cold cold winter, I can only imagine how great it is in warmer times! I will tell my family and friends to stay at the Carriage House Inn - it's perfect.

Stayed at Inn for our 25th anniversary. Jim and Val, the hosts/owners went out of their way to make it special. It was our first visit to the Cape, and the Inn and the people were wonderful in every way.

My wife and I took a vacation to Chatham on Cape Cod for our 1st wedding anniversary (Sept. 2013). Needless to say, we were looking for something special to celebrate our first big milestone as a married couple. We looked at many hotels, motels and bed and breakfasts on the Cape before ultimately choosing the Carriage House Inn. We both could not be happier with our decision to stay with Val and Jim (the owners). From the moment we arrived, both Val and Jim were there to help make our anniversary a special experience and ensure that we had everything we needed to make it a pleasant experience. The breakfasts were different and fun every morning, and Val was extremely accommodating to my wife's Gluten/Dairy Allergies. We couldn’t have been more pleased to start out each day there. Jim was kind enough to spend time with us mapping out the local attractions, food establishments, which beaches to go to (as well as avoid) and was always there to answer questions. He even mapped out our entire day trip from Chatham to Provincetown, giving us plenty of great ideas to make our anniversary road trip amazing. The rooms were clean, cozy, and offered much more privacy than your typical B&B. Overall, we can’t say enough positive things about the Carriage House Inn and the owners. We would recommend this B&B to for a first time trip, as well as a return one (we will be returning).

On arriving at the Carriage House Inn, we were warmly greeted by welcoming hosts, Jim and Val. They not only provided us with delicious breakfasts each morning but also useful knowledge of the cape which really personalised our experience. The accommodation was excellent; it was cleaned daily and our room had an en suit bathroom. I would definitely recommend The Carriage House Inn to a friend.

We traveled here with my husband's parents to relax for a few days after our wedding in upstate NY. We were met with smiles and chocolate chip cookies- GREAT, welcoming first impression. Jim gave us an introduction to Chatam and Cape Cod with lots of ideas for day trips and insider tips. The rooms were lovely and had a very cozy and charming feel to them, as did the whole house. Every morning we were spoiled with a wonderful breakfast including fresh juice, fruit, and a mix of savory and sweet home cooked bits; my favorite being the quiche! Bottled water and soft drinks were always on had and free of charge and there were also beach chairs, beach towels, and a cooler available for use. As we were newlyweds they even arranged for a bottle of Prosecco our last evening there to celebrate (a very thoughtful touch!). Overall we were quite impressed by this Bed and Breakfast and absolutely loved the hospitality of the owners. We will definitely by staying here on our next visit to Cape Cod!

We stayed at the Carriage House Inn for 2 nights in the main house in July 2013. I had stayed here previously in 2010 with a friend. I had raved so much about it that my husband couldn't wait to go there with me. Jim is amazing -- he is friendly, while not pushy. He was always available to help you with suggestions, reservations, and directions. Val prepared delicious and beautifully presented breakfasts each morning. You could choose to come down when you wanted during a set timeframe and could either sit in the sunroom at your own table or with a group at the dining room table. Snacks and drinks (and Jim's homemade chocolate chip cookies) were available whenever you wanted them. Our room was beautiful, comfortable and very quiet. The inn is in walking distance to downtown, lighthouses, etc. so you don't have to drive. We highly recommend this inn to anyone wanting a wonderful experience.
