New England holiday

5 on July 21, 2016

As part of our recent New England tour, one of the major high lights was staying at Holly's lovely house. Her breakfasts are unsurpassed & she is a warm and welcoming host. Yarmouth is an excellent base for exploring Cape Cod and we'd recommend The Blushing Oyster to anyone.


Great breakfasts!

4.6 on July 13, 2016

We stayed at the Blushing Oyster B&B for two nights in June 2016. Holly was an excellent host and chef. When we arrived, we found her out back tending to her garden, from which some of the food and herbs for breakfast were grown. She welcomed us to the B&B and brought us to a well-appointed room on the second floor. We stayed in the Blue Point room on the second floor. The rooms each have a wrought iron key- I hadn't seen those before! They also each have their own air conditioning unit. Breakfasts were excellent. The first day, we had berry bread pudding, melon boats, and apple juice. The second, we had vegetarian chili scrambled eggs, cucumber salad, and orange juice. The menu is set for each day but Holly happily accommodates any meal preferences. I marked 4/5 for onsite dining only because we would have loved to eat there for lunch and dinner as well! She gave us advice for eating and activities in the nearby area. Overall, great stay!


Delightful!!

We enjoyed a wonderful 4-night stay at The Blushing Oyster. Our room was very comfortable, the breakfasts were delicious and made with care, the patio was so pleasant and relaxing, and Holly's restaurant and beach recommendations were spot on. Further, she thought of everything: maps, beach chairs, umbrellas, bug spray! We couldn't have asked for more.

Innkeeper Response
Once again, thank you for spending your special time on the Cape with me. It was a joy getting to know you both and I look forward to seeing you again. There are so many more great restaurants to try and things to do all year round. Take care,


Lovely place

I had the pleasure of staying at the Blushing Oyster B&B in early June of 2016. The B&B was lovely, clean and Holly was an amazing host. I would stay again in the future.

Impeccable!

5 on May 08, 2016

I spent two wonderful nights at the Blushing Oyster in March 2016. Every detail of my stay was perfect: all of the rooms are tastefully and comfortably furnished and impeccably clean. The bed was super comfortable and room was quiet. Holly has thought of every last detail to make the stay more comfortable and her breakfasts are out of this world. She is absolutely lovely, charming and helpful with anything that a guest might need. A perfect stay!

Innkeeper Response

Fabulous Yarmouthport B & B!

The Blushing Oyster is charming in every way. From beautifully decorated rooms to delicious breakfasts. A wonderful, relaxing getaway. Thanks to innkeeper, Holly, for such special attention to detail.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words and taking the time to share them with others. I'm very pleased that you enjoyed your stay and liked the Inn. Hope to see you again here on Cape Cod. Cheers


Wonderful!

5 on March 20, 2016

We stayed three nights here recently. Everything was exactly right. Our hostess, Holly, was friendly and highly knowledgeable about the Cape and things to do during our stay. Breakfasts are vegetarian, which is important to us. They were different every morning, plentiful, and DELICIOUS! (We also loved our afternoon tea snacks.) The home and our room were spotlessly clean and charmingly decorated, without being fussy. Our room had its own bath and temperature control, and was very amply large enough for two. There is a large common living room as well if you want to mingle or just be in a different space. We will definitely be back.

Innkeeper Response
So glad you enjoyed your stay and appreciate the time you took to offer your thoughts and remarks. Thanks again for coming and hope to see you again soon. Take care


A charming B&B in an ideal location for exploring Cape Cod

4.0 on October 21, 2015

My wife and I stayed three nights while exploring Cape Cod for the first time. Our host Holly made us feel welcome and was kind enough to prepare a different vegetarian breakfast for us each morning - which we had not expected. Our room was clean and comfortable and beautifully decorated. Yarmouth Port itself is a charming village and is ideally located for exploring the many attractions that Cap Cod has to offer. I highly recommend the Blushing Oyster.

Innkeeper Response
