Views of the tidal creek and marsh from the Secret Panel and Seth Pope chambers and the garden from the Twin Chamber. An authentic First Period 1699 colonial. Very short walk to museums, shops, and restaurants. Twenty minute walk to the Boardwalk leading to the beach. The Secret Panel and Seth Pope chambers are large with private full baths (bathtub with shower), romantic candle-filled fireplaces, antique furniture, and beautiful views. Wi fi. Breakfast 8 to 10 A.M. Secret Panel escape route, hidden staircase, safe room. Ripley's "Believe it or Not" wrote about Seth Pope, the builder of the house: he was kicked out of Sandwich in 1670. Elegance, history, and comfort.

We loved the Tupper Inn and our hosts, Jana and Bix! Our room was spacious, comfortable and extremely clean. The Inn is in a great location and it's long and interesting history made it a fun place to stay. It is full of beautiful antiques, yet has modern amenities. Our delicious breakfasts were the perfect way to start a day of sight seeing, hiking, kayaking and whale watching. Jana and Bix were delightful and very helpful in making sure we found good places to eat and fun things to do. We returned home yesterday and have already started recommending the Tupper Inn to our friends!!

Staying at the Tupper Inn is both exquisite time travel (the house was built in 1699) and easy to love home-away-from-home comfort. The rooms are generous and tastefully decorated, with modern bathrooms amidst the period detail and New England-y touches, and the public areas are likewise charming and open. Jana (a noted children's book author) is a relaxed and friendly host, and her breakfasts—served with lovely china, silver and settings—were a pleasure to wake up to. Also, you can't beat this location, two minutes from Sandwich's sights—Hoxey House, the Grist Mill, the Pond—and less than 15 minutes from Sagamore Beach. Um, also you're really close to Seafood Sam's and Twin Acres Ice Cream; go easy! Parking aplenty, lots of nice nature around the house, and both interesting and comforting. Highly recommended.

From the moment I stepped in the door, my expectations were exceeded. I was greeted warmly and the rooms were clean, comfortable and interesting everywhere you look there is something to gaze at. No details were overlooked in providing a truly memorable experiance. The Innkeeper Jana was a wonderfuly storey teller in relaying the history of the Inn. The food and presentation was wonderful. She made me feel like a princess. I cannot wait to return. Lastley, Jana is an author of childrens books which should not be overlooked while there.

We had a very nice stay at the Tupper Inn. Jana and Bix were excellent hosts and cooks! Breakfast was wonderful! Within walking distance of some great history lessons! Plus it was a great trip for geneology... We are bringing the extended family next time! Thank you!

Jana and Bix went out of their way to accomodate us. The Secret Panel room was facsinating and charming. Jana was a delight with her history of the house and Bix was a real help to us with directions . They spoiled us and went way beyond to treat us extra special. We will gladly stay there again. Sincerely, Gail and Kent
