Enjoy your stay on Cape Cod

We enjoyed our stay at The Blushing Oyster Bed and Breakfast. The breakfasts are delicious, Holly is a great hostess. Route 6 A is a more relaxing part of the Cape.


Enjoyable

4.4 on August 17, 2015

Very friendly staff. Pleasant dining experience in the garden. Older guests might request a first floor room as the stairs are steep and narrow and the shower in the claw foot rub is somewhat challenging to enter and exit. Quaint setting, comfortable beds. Quiet room.


Charming B&B

4th of July Weekend

The surrounding area was scenic and the Inn was very pretty. The Inn keeper, Holly, was pleasant and catered breakfast each morning to our needs. Each breakfast was exquisite and the room was always clean.

The Blushing Oyster is everything it claims to be. We had a lovely week with Holly Silva the owner/host. She served us wonderful meatless gourmet breakfast each morning. Made pamphlets and maps available to us and lots of tips, suggestions and directions to make our vacation memorable. Ideally situated for the ferries to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard. We made two trips to Provincetown for a delicious Lobster Roll at The Coffee Pot, right at the very tip of the cape. Staying at Mid Cape at The Blushing Oyster was perfect.

Innkeeper Response
It was wonderful having the time to get know each other. I am pleased that you had such a favorable experience and all that Lobster Roll research was above and beyond expectations.Happy to have the reports. Please come again and I thank you for your review and the time it took to offer it. Be well and safe travels ahead.


Our Stay at The Blushing Oyster

We would definitely stay at The Blushing Oyster again! We stayed in The Wellington and it was very clean and cozy! Holly was very welcoming and helpful. The breakfasts were delicious! I highly recommend staying here if you are vacationing in Cape Cod.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in the Wellfleet Suite. It was a crazy weekend with all kinds of weather issues, but I think it makes for excitement sometimes. Would love to see you again, in fairer climate. Safe travels.

Innkeeper Response

Beautiful and charming Cape Cod B&B

4.4 on October 10, 2014

This was our first experience staying at a B&B and we were pleasantly pleased. We stayed in the Wellfleet room and it was simply gorgeous. Huge four post king bed, fireplace, and bath with whirlpool tub. The inn itself was a stunning older home originally constructed by a ship captain. Beautiful wide plank wood floors, tasteful color schemes, and comfortably furnished. The grounds had a lush garden area with patio. The inn is in a great mid-cape location and we were able to cover a lot of ground in a weekend. Our host, Holly, was very gracious and prepared the most wonderful breakfasts! She was so helpful in pointing us in the right direction so we could plan our day exploring. I would highly recommend this inn to anyone looking to stay at a B&B in the Yarmouth area.

Innkeeper Response
I appreciate your praise of The Blushing Oyster. It is very helpful to hear that you enjoyed yourselves, felt cared for, liked your room and were happy with breakfast. I hope that you will consider coming again to Cape Cod and staying with me. I am pleased to know that your first B&B experience was a positive one. Happy travels ahead.

Innkeeper Response
