A stay in the Elenis Suite

4.2 on September 26, 2015

We had rainy weather, but the suite was so comfortable and with a full kitchen, we did not mind. The rooms had just been redone and were immaculate. The pictures on the website did not show the new large screen TV recently added in the living room. Made watching the Patriots game Very enjoyable!

Had no idea what I was getting when I booked this place. Just went on the positive reviews. And they were right. The rooms were on the small size but you really don't spend any time in your room, so space is not needed. Very clean, neat, bathrooms were clean and modern. Very quiet at night; everyone was respectful of that. Our party had 2 rooms, both on the first floor at the back; one with a king bed and the other a queen and twin. Beds were very comfortable. No complaints at all. Breakfasts are great and filling. If you wanted it "tweeked" in some way they were happy to do that, i.e., not adding meat or onions, etc. But if you don't want the hot breakfast, there is yogurt, breads, cereal, etc. There is lemonade and cookies out all day. You sit with different people at breakfast and it's fun to meet everyone. People are friendly. One evening we just brought in a pizza and sat in the breakfast room and ate and played cards. This place is right on a beach with chairs, umbrellas, tables, etc. If you park at the public beach ( which is right next door) you will pay $20 - $25 for parking. We loved the place and the location.

Our Second Visit

5 on August 14, 2015

We came to Cape Cod last year, our first visit to the area. Staying at By the Sea was just the remarkable place we expected. It was also our first bed and breakfast. The breakfast incredible and the view even better. We had a wonderful time, so we came back this year. Same room, and same great time. We highly recommend this bed and breakfast.

Lovely experience

Myself with 3 adults stayed in the "Constantine Suite," a 2-bedroom suite with a full kitchen, living room and dining area. The room was gorgeous, and had lots of space, beautifully carved dressers and beds. The only drawback was that the website and letter I received from the b&b stated that a second car could be parked in a lot down the street and must pay town's parking fees. That was understandable, since they have limited parking. However, we weren't able to park that second car in any lot because there was no overnight parking allowed or a town parking permit was needed. No one at the b&b knew this. They were accommodating though, and gave us a second parking permit (with a little push). The breakfast was very good, but there was only one option per day, which was a little disappointing since it's $15 per person (the suites don't include breakfast).. So I paid $15 for egg and ham on a croissant with coffee. However, the food quality was great, and there was always cookies, lemonade, cake, and coffee available at all times. The private beach was also beautiful and the b&b had their own bathroom on the beach, which was convenient and always clean. Overall, we had a great experience and would return.

We'll be back!

We just spent the most delightful weekend By the Sea, celebrating our 30th anniversary. From the warm welcome we received to the smell of fresh baked cookies in the veranda overlooking the neatest beach you will find (raked every morning), we could not have been more comfortable. Our room was spotless, fresh, clean and very comfortable, great shower pressure! The ocean view out the window (308) was lovely. The breakfast experience every morning was delicious and we met very nice people each day. It was centrally located to everything we wanted to see. I don't typically write reviews, but I do read them. Our experience was well worth mentioning and I would highly recommend you visit and enjoy yourself By The Sea. Room Tip: The ocean front room was definitely worth it! Room 308 had cross ventilation as well as ceiling fan.

Wedding weekend

4.6 on June 02, 2015

Lovely place to stay with a wedding reception right across the street (Sea View Inn). We had one of the 2 bedroom suites which are spectacular! Breakfast each morning was wonderful (but should be included in the price of the suite). Private beach was nice... staff very attentive and happy. Cost was a bit steep but we enjoyed the convenience.

Great Experience!

Great B&B...clean, charming, and exceptional service. Great breakfast! We will go back again. Website won't let me check the "outstanding" rating...but it was!

Super Place to stay

5 on January 04, 2015

Everything about "By The Sea" was outstanding. We stayed in a suite the last week of Dec.. The entrance was within a couple of hundred feet of the beach. I sat on the private deck looking at the ocean and drank my coffee every morning. Kitchen and entire suite was spotless. Price was 1/2 what I would have expected for this suite and location. We will certainly be going back!

First Time in Cape Cod

Very nice friendly atmosphere. The room was little small for three people sharing but very clean. The staff were amazing and helpful.

Shore was good!

2 nights in late October for 2 of us. Comfortable place, super beach location, good breakfasts on the sun porch and an inviting communal living room with fire place. Watched sun rise from their beach, super view. Excellent detailed orientation tour when we arrived.
