Liz and Jerry are amazing hosts who made us feel like family. We had a wonderful stay with them and we would do it again in a heartbeat! Amazing breakfasts too!

THE place to stay on the Cape!

5 on August 17, 2014

Never having been to New England before, we weren't sure where to stay for our first stay. How fortunate we were to have found Baileys By The Sea! Not only is it an impeccably run and maintained B&B, but it's just around the corner from the ferry to Martha's Vineyard, yards from the local beach, a short bike ride to the Shining Sea Bike Trail, and minutes to downtown Falmouth with lots of shopping and great restaurants. Liz & Jerry make you feel welcome right from the start & will go out of their way to accommodate any need (like storing your bicycles) or even take time out of their work day to play a piano duet! Once at Baileys you will NOT want to leave!

Liz and Jerry were the consummate hosts. They were very accommodating and friendly. The rooms were gorgeous, and as a family, it was wonderful to have two rooms sharing a bathroom for a reduced rate. The location is prime! I'd definitely recommend this BnB to friends and family!

Classy B&B Run by Classy Couple

5 on August 15, 2014

My wife and I spent 6 nights in early August, 2014 at Bailey’s By the Sea. It was our first visit. It was an amazingly wonderful experience and prior to leaving we made reservations in 2015 for 7 nights. In my working career, I have stayed at hotels, B&B’s, and inns in Europe, Asia, and all over the U.S. This place is by far the most perfect facility at which I have stayed – decor, housekeeping, food, and service were excellent. The period Victorian residence has been restored to perfection with amazing fit, finish, and furnishings. The housekeeping is immaculate. As an example, the windows in the wrap around enclosed front porch are so clean, you are not sure they are there. Hence the view of Martha’s Vineyard is amazing. In short, there is not a “hair out of place”. The porch with its wonderful view is available at all hours of your stay and always has fresh coffee, tea, chocolate chip cookies as well as a “delight of the day” for your pleasure. The innkeepers – Liz and Jerry, are wonderful hosts and cannot seem to do enough for their guests. They are warm, friendly, conversational, and want to make certain that you are enjoying your stay at their residence as well as seeing the sites in Falmouth and the Cape. The breakfasts were simply amazing. Everyday had different glassware, dishes, and table setting. The menus were not repeated. The presentations of juice, a fruit starter, and main course were beautiful. While breakfast is between 8 and 9:30A, morning coffee is on at 7:00a. If you are seeking morning quietude with your coffee – the wrap around porch is the place. We stayed in the Houghton room which has a marvelous view of Martha’s Vineyard, and the Sound and the breezes never stopped. The private bath associated with this room was spotless, and like new. Liz and Jerry are a classy couple running a classy B&B – we felt like we were sharing their home instead of staying there!!

Start with the views, they are incredible. The water is right out your window, of our room, and most of the other rooms. The food was excellent, something new every day, and plenty to eat. The hospitality and service was great, from good suggestions of what to do and what to avoid. We have been to several B&Bs throughout the country, and Bailey's is one of the best.

Honeymoon at Baileys

4.4 on July 22, 2014

We stayed two nights during out honeymoon and we were blown away by Bailey's. The location is right on the water. Our room, Traverse City, had large windows over looking the ocean. We were welcomed with a bottle of champagne in our room, complimentary from the owners. The breakfasts were three courses of delicious delicately made food, which were served on the wrap around deck with the amazing ocean view. For dinner, we walked two blocks down the ocean road to Casino Warf and British Beer Company. Both restaurants served great fresh seafood. Overall, we would definitely stay at Baileys again!

Excellent place to stay!

My husband and I have visited Bailey's By The Seanfor two years now and have loved every minute of it! I've been recommending it to all our friends who travel to the cape!

Top quality B&B

4.8 on July 09, 2014

This was the best B&B stay we ever had. The place was right on the water overlooking Martha's Vinyard. What a view! The place was immaculate and the breakfast was fantastic. Liz was friendly and accommodating. This will be our place to stay on the cape for years to come. The town of Falmouth is really nice and has a lot to do. Best B&B on the Cape! Check it out.

Incredible Relaxation...

5 on June 28, 2014

When you walk in the front door, you know you are at your "home away from home". Everything about this place was wonderful. We came here to get away from our busy lives, and it was such a great time of relaxation. Liz and Jerry have put their lives into making this place a home for each visitor, and you can tell they care a lot about each guest that comes to visit them. I know that when we come back to this area, we will be staying here again.
