Our Stay at The Blushing Oyster

5 on February 19, 2015

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.


Great B & B

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 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.


First vidit to Cape Cod.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The B&B is centrally located on the Cape which was a big plus for us.

Charming Centrally located B&B with 5-star food

4.6 on September 14, 2014

We spent 3 nights at the Blushing Oyster, which is located in historic Yarmouth, off the commercialized path on Old King's Highway. The B&B felt like it was nestled in a quaint small town. Within walking distance were 2-3 great restaurants - we enjoyed being able to walk to dinner after a day of driving/biking around to all cape cod has to offer. We felt the centrally located Blushing Oyster made getting around the cape easy (15 mins to hyannis, 45 min to Provincetown), it is excellent for anyone who wants a diverse excursion! The B&B was surrounded by beautiful gardens with ample parking. Holly, the owner, keeps the B&B spotless. There is a comfy living room and outside patio, offering guests multiple lounge options. Our room was charming, which contained it's own bathroom. Every morning there was a fabulous unique 2 course breakfast awaiting us. Holly is a great cook and loves to create memorable dishes for her guests. She's was a pleasure to chat with. Not sure where to go - ask Holly. Forgot your beach chairs, umbrella or towel - Holly has a closet filled with these extras for guests to borrow - which we gladly took advantage of!!

Innkeeper Response

A Wonderful Memory

4.8 on August 23, 2014

My wife and I spent our 50th Anniversary weekend at The Blushing Oyster. We cannot say enough about how special it was. Holly is a delight and the place is lovely. Our room was charming and every breakfast was a culinary delight. Holly put so much thought and love into creating wonderful and unusual treats for us to eat. In addition, she was so helpful in suggesting things to do and places for dinner. We really felt like we were visiting an old friend. Thank you Holly for making us feel so welcome.

Innkeeper Response
I am so happy that you enjoyed your anniversary on the Cape. I had a wonderful time getting to know you both and hope to see you again. We'll find some more great restaurants for you to sample. Cheers!


Great room and location with exceptional hostess!

5 on August 20, 2014

I recommend The Blushing Oyster for those who want to be right on 6A; close to highway 6. The atmosphere is relaxing and the outdoor seating area is a nice touch.

Innkeeper Response

Cape Cod Work Trip

4.6 on August 14, 2014

The home was clean and welcoming, and the rooms were quaint and comfortable. The bathroom in Island Creek is small, which was fine for me, but it could be tight for someone who is taller and/or larger. Holly was wonderful, and even packed me a breakfast one morning I had to leave early. There are also quality restaurants within walking distance. I definitely recommend this B&B.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking time to review your stay with me. I appreciate your honest comments to help future guests make a well informed choice. Hope to see you again soon.


What a find!

4.0 on July 29, 2014

Holly is a lovely hostess and her Captain's house is terrific! We had her lower floor suite and our rooms were spacious and spotless and the bed comfy. Both days we had the joy of breakfast on the garden patio and the food Holly prepared and served was superb.

Innkeeper Response
What kind words of praise. I surely am pleased that you enjoyed your visit to the Cape and your stay with me here at The Blushing Oyster. Be well.
