Had such a nice stay we didn't want to leave

4.4 on March 05, 2013

The Penny House Inn & Spa has been under new ownership since June 2012 and the people who own and work here are so sweet, nice and friendly. I found them extremely accommodating and easy to talk to, every interaction was calm, caring, engaging and thoughtful. The atmosphere was clean, stylish and very comfortable. I was extremely impressed, the layout was large and felt really spacious, there were lots of windows letting in plenty of natural light. we were there during the off-peak season we had a choice of rooms and chose to stay in the Captains Quarters which was UNREAL!!! Talking to the new owners, I know they are planning on updating all the rooms but as it was, we were extremely happy. Full of old world charm, dark wood panelling, dark rustic wood beams, 4 post king sized bed! The room had comfortable chairs, fireplace, separate bathroom and the most unbelievable spa tub I have ever soaked in. The breakfasts were great! We were served homemade granola, yogurt, eggs, bacon and either waffle or pumpkin pancakes and everything was so tasty. There were also cookies and scones complimentary and you could help yourself to tea or coffee throughout the day. The last day that I was there, I treated myself to 90 min massage in their amazingly beautiful spa. I had a great treatment and I am extremely picky. (this is coming from a fellow Licensed Massage Therapist) Janet really did a great job working specific points and areas of my body to release tension while giving a fantastic overall relaxation treatment. The spa itself is beautiful. It's tastefully decorated in a modern yet calming style, the colors and decor are warm and soothing, with another beautiful jet tub, two massage tables, a fire place and great amenities.

Wonderful experience!

My husband and I just spent two very pleasant nights at the Inn in Eastham. The rooms were very clean, furniture comfortable, and breakfasts excellent! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. We highly recommend a visit! Denise/ West Springfield, MA

Lovely inn but needs some upgrading

3.0 on August 13, 2012

We stayed for a few days this summer and had a very nice stay. Cape Cod doesn't have many B&Bs so in comparison to the motels this place is a haven. However, rooms could use updating as could pool furniture, grounds aren't that welcoming and photos on website need to be updated to reflect current furnishings. Robes were not provided as stated on website and we didn't feel we should have to ask. But we did love the location and the owners were very nice once we broke the ice. We will likely try this B&B again once the new owners have had time to make some improvements.

Would love to recommend this place

great inn

We stumbled upon the inn after passing many no vacancy signs. With so much more character than any motel we've ever been to, this charming inn was comfortable yet affordable--no more than many of the motels but included a delicious breakfast which was also pleasing to the eye. The breakfast was fitting that of an upscale or boutique hotel and was easily worth $15 each in any non-metro areas, far more if you were in NYC or Boston. We will definitely return!

A must stay on the Outer Cape

I never imagined that my booking the Penny House B&B through a groupon would convert me to this type of accommodations and give me an incredible escape. Penny Inn is pretty and comfortable and offers more amenities than most B&B's. There is a salt water pool and a spa. I had one of the best 90 minute hot rock massages I have ever had! The 3 course breakfasts are outstanding. They begin with stunning carved exotic fruit plate followed by yogurt with homemade granola and blueberries and end with scrambled eggs, bacon and either waffles, french toast or pancakes. Their pumpkin pancakes with chocolate shavings are to die for! The staff les by Melissa is friendky and helpful.Their location on 6 is deceptive. Very high hedges give you privacy and quiet. I can't wait to return.

Over the Top in every way!

First off, I am not a B&B type of person. The last thing I want is an ancient bed 4 feet off the floor with wall paper reminiscent of the 1600s. The Penny House Inn was fantastic. Everything was modern, but refined. The jet tub, the walk in shower (needed better water collection) and the gas fireplace all made the room fantastic and very comfortable. The new owners, Melissa and Leonard could not have been nicer or more accommodating. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for luxury on the Upper Cape.

Loved It!

We were there 3 weeks after the new owners came but they were already in full swing. there was a delicious breakfast with a beautiful fresh fruit platter. the rooms were appointed nicely, the inn keepers very pleasant and helpful. they even asked for assistance in what they could to better the inn. They are offering discounts for repeat guests, as well. We were very happy there and will be back in September.
