The inn-keeper, Debbie, takes pride in caring for her guests. My mother and I have stayed at The Peeper House MANY times and Debbie always remembers "the little things": which room we favor; what we like for breakfast. The Inn is located in Brewster on the main drag -- walking distance to the Brewster General Store and nearby restaurants; plenty of parking. There's even a lovely deck to enjoy when the weather is good.

The Pepper House is a lovingly maintained late 18th century house furnished creatively with an eclectic mix of antiques. The rooms are comfortable and beautifully decorated. We had a the deck to ourselves for a late afternoon picnic of wine and cheese with a great view. Breakfast was delicious and cooked to order by our hostess, Debby, who was so helpful about where we might kayak on the Cape. When we next visit Cape Cod this is where we shall stay!

We loved our visit over Memorial Day weekend. Debbie is charming and very knowledgeable and helpful with planning your day. The Inn is located within walking distance to the Brewster Gerneral Store! A must when on the cape and to several beaches and a hip bar. We had a fabulous time.

This is a lovely B&B, originally built in the Federal style. It is convenient for the North Shore shops, restaurants, and beaches and only short drive to the outer Cape beaches and towns. We stayed 3 nights in September. Our room (the Cherry Room) was large, bright, and cheerful with a fireplace. Furniture in the room included a 4 poster bed, lovely bureaus and a sofa. We enjoyed a large, private bathroom with lots of towels. The B&B is well kept and very clean. The innkeeper, Debbie, is exceptionally nice and, if asked, will provide a great deal of information regarding sights, restaurants, activities, etc. Each morning she cooks a custom breakfast for each guest. Our one suggestion for her is to provide better lighting for the sign and parking area. It is difficult to find at night. Our only regret? Leaving!

My husband and I are from the UK and we were visiting the Cape for the first time with no idea of what there was to see and do. Debby's knowledge of Cape Cod is exceptional, every morning at breakfast she would advise us on what we could do, telling us the best places to go to and what to avoid, even down to the best routes to take to avoid traffic jams. Our rooms were cleaned every day providing us with fresh towels, I don't think we would have got better service if we had stayed in a hotel. Thanks Debby and family for making our stay a very pleasant one!

I hold the opinion that a B&B is as good as it's host and this is exactly what made this stay so unenjoyable. From the minute we arrived two hours before the scheduled check in to inquire if we could change after our drive we were treated rudely and shown the door. We booked our room on line through Travelocity requesting a room for 2 adults and one child (B&B.com lables as child friendly) listing the age of our child. The Pepper house has rooms with a queen and one twin bed perfect for a small family like ours even though there was an extra charge for a third person. When showed up with a child we were first sized up and down in a rude manner by the owner (Debbie) and later told by her mother that the "internet, not Debbie made a mistake by accepting a child", after being read the riot act about an adult only environment and all white bed sheets we (mostly our son) were so closely watched we found avoiding going back to our room, at 200 + a night this is unacceptable. When we showed up during the breakfast hours listed on their web site (7a-9a) we were rudely told the actual hours and sent away. When coming to breakfast the next day during the hours we were informed of the day before we were rudely told she was waiting for us early and then demanded we pick a time for the next morning. Anyone with a child on vacation knows that if he or she sleeps in - you gladly let them; therefore, I was not going to wake him him to eat Cheerios with Debbie standing over his shoulder something (literally standing behind him watching him). This is not my idea of a warm friendly home environment as described on the wed site. I strongly recommend looking elsewhere if you want a relaxing home like atmosphere. Unless your definition of homelike is STRESS STRESS and more STRESS on your vacation.
This is the type of guest that makes people stop running inns. We list on our website and on our on-line listings on Expedia & Hotels.com that we accept well behaved children over 6. She checked in with a 2 year old! She booked herself in a room with all white quilts with a 2 year old. Some people think the rules do not apply to them. We tried our best to accomodate this situation, but this woman wasn't interested if any of the other guests were inconvenienced. It is not appropriate to let a 2 year old slop his mother's coffee all over the cloth tablecloth or push his food off the plate & all around the table when you are inside in a dining room with other guests who are expecting a nice quiet bed and breakfast experience. She emailed me after her stay, and I replied back in a thoughtful manner. I suggested that in the future she contact the innkeeper in advance to discuss whether or not the inn can accomodate a toddler.

Pepper House is a historical place, a 200 years old building, clean and cozy. The location is prime: closed to downtown, to restaurants, to highways, etc. This Inn is deliciously quiet, you can enjoy the get-away, and feel almost home, specially eating the home style full breakfast. Furthermore, the owner is knowledgeable regarding the Cape Cod area+ she pleasantly helps you with places you want to visit. We fully recommend the Pepper House to anyone, and yes, we will visit again. Ronaldo & Renata

We had a great stay at the Pepper House Inn. The rooms were beautiful and the breakfast was great! we really enjoyed the location too. I would def. recommend this place if you are looking to get away from the typical hotel routine.

Overall, the room was nice - clean, good bedding, average bathroom, good working TV, nice furniture. Overall, would say it is quiet but is on a main street. Breakfast was good - room you eat in is very small. We asked for bacon - told they had no meat (forgot to buy it or something). Common rooms below average - small and cluttered and a bit musty. Some stringent rules about where you could go - no coffee in room which seemed weird. We have been to friendlier places. Unlikely I would go back as I have extensive B&B experience and this is in the bottom 10%.

Debbie was good enough to allow my wife and I to rebook our stay as I had arrived to her B&B very ill. She held our reservation open - not something most inn keepers do. The breakfasts and well worth waking up for. Deb's mom and her have great knowledge of things to do in the area. The rooms are historic and comfortable.

We just stayed at the Pepper House Inn and had a very good experience. The rooms are lovely and the beds excellent. For those who understand the B & B concept, you will not be disappointed. This is a family operation and they aim to please.l

We were visiting Brewster for a wedding qver a weekend in September. We enjoyed our stay at the Pepper House--the rooms were delightful, the service exceptional and the breadfasts were wonderful. We ate outside on the patio and enjoyed the food and the atmosphere as well.
