About

The Inn at Lewis Bay is a great spot to spend a relaxing getaway on Cape Cod. Just 220 steps to the beach on Lewis Bay, this 1920s Dutch Colonial Beach House is set in a quiet seaside residential neighborhood. We try to make all our guests feel like the Inn is their "home away from home". All of the rooms are unique in personality 5 rooms with Queen size bed and one with extra twin with the 6th room having a King bed. Air conditioning, electric fireplaces,TVs and private baths with hairdryers, some with partial views of the Bay. A full homemade breakfast is served each morning as well as early morning coffee and tea, plus an afternoon snack and refreshments. Located mid-Cape, the Inn at Lewis Bay is close to everything you want to see and do- ferries to the islands, whale watching, beaches, shopping, restaurants and golf. If you are looking for a quiet, casual, romantic getaway with a fabulous breakfast just steps from the beach, the Inn at Lewis Bay is the perfect place.

Perfect B & B! 5 STARS!!!!!

4.0 on August 24, 2015

When you make reservations and pray you have chosen the perfect place; it is like finding a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow when your expectations are met and go beyond! Our stay at The Inn at Lewis Bay mid-August was everything we hoped for: charming, inviting, crisp, quaint, comfy, beachy, clean, and on and on! The gorgeous porch is like something right out of the Great Gatsby - check out F. Scott Fitzgerald's Westport summer house! ...we spent our nights in the rockers being hypnotized by cool ocean breezes, which was a short walk away. Our room was just lovely! Titled the "Picket Fence" - it was bright and cheery and extremely comfortable. Typically, my husband and I are reluctant travelers when it comes to cleanliness and this B & B was impeccable! Breakfast consisted of fresh coffee, fresh fruit, fresh juices...baked goods and a main dish such as French Toast, Quiche, Ham, etc...appetizing and delicious! Our host Theresa was always warm and friendly and available and gracious. She went out of her way to make us feel welcome and comfortable! Please make it a point to visit this darling B & B - you will NOT be disappointed!! (Please note...when rating the "stars" during this review, it would not let me click 5 stars...which I intended. So when this posts, if there are only 4 stars, it is not my rating. I am rating The Inn at Lewis Bay 5 stars all the way!!!)

Innkeeper Response

Can't wait to return!

4.8 on August 23, 2015

My husband and I spent two nights (8/14 & 8/15) at Inn At Lewis Bay immediately following a 7-day cruise to Bermuda out of Boston. We stayed in the Secret Garden suite on the 2nd floor. Upon arriving at the Inn, we were welcomed by Teresa on the front porch. Both the interior/exterior are IMMACULATE! Cannot emphasize that enough. What a beautiful, lovingly-maintained property! Our bed was super-comfy and the room itself was spacious, bright & airy. Breakfast time was such a treat. Teresa alternates between sweet & savory dishes. We had fresh fruit and AMAZING french toast (complete with whipped cream and bananas/strawberries) on the 1st morning and a yogurt parfait and scrumptious quiche the following morning. Having been to the Cape many times and just returning from a cruise, we just wanted to 'chill'. And, we did just that on the expansive front porch (probably our favorite part of the Inn). My husband and I claimed the two rocking chairs, spending hours there. The location of the Inn is perfect, proximity to the beach(es) a real asset. We enjoyed strolling down to the beach in the morning and again at night to view the sunset. Sorry we never had the opportunity to meet Teresa's husband, Keith, but I'm sure he's a great guy. Tetley, the couple's English Bulldog, is one cute puppy! I enjoyed going over to the fence and giving him bellyrubs. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Inn At Lewis Bay. My husband and I are already trying to figure out when we can return.

Great little hideaway on the Cape

4.6 on August 13, 2015

We stayed here last week. Cannot say enough good things. Lovely little spot. Great breakfasts served in a sunny dining room.Nice outdoor space. One block to the beach. The innkeeper, Teresa, was terrific and met my request for non-down pillows (I have allergies). Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood away from the bustle of Rt 28 yet convenient to Hyannis. Highly recommended.Much more personal experience than any hotel.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for the gift you left behind and thank you for the kind words here and in the note you left for me. You both were such a great young couple it was nice to have you so relaxed here and when you ask so nicely for something to do with allergies I will try to accommodate the best I can . Both of you have a great rest of your year.Bless you both.


Relaxing Getaway

4.8 on August 05, 2015

We had a GREAT experience at the Inn. Hostess Theresa was cheerful, helpful, & informative about area sites and activities. Our room and the entire Inn were immaculate. We Loved the delicious and elegantly served Breakfasts (including amazing French Toast). A short 2 block walk to a lovely Beach. There are beach chairs, beach towels and bikes provided too! We enjoyed the welcoming front porch to sit and relax on and enjoy the sea breeze. We stayed 3 nights, and we look forward to visiting again. Great location, in a quiet neighborhood, yet convenient to shops, restaurants, and beaches. Denise & George

My husband and I stayed at the Inn at Lewis Bay for our first visit to cape cod. Teresa was a wonderful host and prepared a great breakfast for us each morning. She was very helpful with her recommendations for our short stay on the cape and where to visit. We stayed in the Whale Watchers room with a very comfortable bed. The house and the room were clean. We would love to come back!

Perfect B&B September 19-22

4.6 on September 23, 2014

We just got back from this charming B&B in West Yarmouth. Our first time in this part of the Cape. We've stayed at many Inn's over the years but this was the friendliest by far. We had a great time, rooms are spotless, food is wonderful and the hostess is so accommodating to dietary needs for my gluten free diet.The location is great, you can see the water and it's a very short walk to a lovely private beach. The neighborhood is super quiet. We slept well, ate well, and made new friends. I would reccommond this to all my friends and would definitely come back.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review. We are glad you had a good time and yes the company was great makes the Inn experience so much more relaxed. We look forward to your return any time of the year.


Central Location and very Relaxing

5 on September 19, 2014

Lovely B&B with a great breakfast and perfect central location to Hyannis, Chatham, Sandwich and Ferries over to either Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard. The best smelling bed linens EVER! Loved settling into bed each night!

Innkeeper Response
