Wonderful stay

4.6 on September 06, 2014

Have stayed at a few B&B over the years. This one was by far the best.The carriage suite was immaculate & had all ameneties you may need. The private entrance was definitely a plus. TV could be updated to a flat screen . The grounds are very inviting & tranquil. Perfect spot for us as we attended a wedding in Mashpee & visited with son in coastguard. Steve was a most gracious host. Thank you for a wonderful stay..

Great get away in mashpee

Stayed at this charming B&B for a night while attending a friends surprise party. The proprietor was a lovely gent who was so helpful and welcoming. The family suite was very private with separate entrance and very spacious. The home is locate on a lake and we enjoyed a nice kayak the following morning. Located close to Falmouth, Woods Hole where there are lots of shops and very good food options.

A quiet stay

A lovely spot for early coffee by lakeside. End the day with a great inroom whirlpool. Was playing golf down the road so it was perfect for a few nights.

Wonderful Little B&B

My husband booked our stay in celebration of our anniversary and it was lovely. I must say one of the best features was being able to bring our lab with us. The room was attractive and accommodating, and Steve was attentive to detail in the short time we left the room to tidy up. A few Suggestions. An updated television capable of handling plug in of electronics, and a keurig coffee maker. Thanks!!! We will be back!

Innkeeper Response
Thanks for the suggestions. We'll try to do both.

Relaxing Retreat!

5 on September 09, 2013

Just returned from Mashpee, where I had the pleasure of staying at this Inn for almost a full week. It was immaculate, cozy, had every amenity I could of needed, or imagined. Large comfortable bed, mattress and pillows, which are so important to me when I travel. I attended a week long conference, came home each evening to the light left on for me, and the room straightened. Each morning I enjoyed a delicious cup of coffee in my suite, with fresh fruit parfait, delicious muffins and bread and fresh orange juice. There is a beautiful fireplace, large Jacuzzi with powerful jets to massage the cares of the world away. Normally, I would not mention the shower, but it was amazing, better water pressure than many large hotels I have stayed in, including the Biltmore!!! No matter what brings you to the Cape, business, or pleasure, this inn is a must stay!!! I will be returning this next summer and bringing my family to enjoy the beautiful area and comforts of this cozy Inn. Barbara and Steve have truly exceeded my expectations, they are amazing people and a joy to have met!

We had a lovely stay this past weekend in the family suite. We enjoyed the warm hospitality that we recieved from Steve, Barbara, and Clara. The house was just delightful. Immaculate is just an understatement to describe the cleanliness. Last but not least the breakfast were tasty, fresh and there was a nice assorment. We can't wait to book it aagain

Alexander Hamilton House - Perfect Spot

4.6 on August 25, 2011

Our family and our dog Frank felt right at home with our own entrance and a full floor to relax inside or on the extended porch across the back of the house. The planked path to the lake provides a restful private spot to read, sun, or enjoy the canoes!

Great local getaway!

3.6 on March 26, 2011

We wanted a quick local getaway to just relax celebrate our birthdays. We stayed in the upstairs room which was very spacious. The Inn is immaculate. We used the tub and fireplace both nights. The tub is hugh and it was wonderful having a real wood working fireplace. The innkeepers were great always available to answer questions or offer ideas on places to go in the area. The only thing I would change would be a better place to sit. There are nice wicker chairs, but I would prefer a couch or love seat. The King bed was comfortable and the area very quiet. Unfortunatly we could not use the path to walk down to the pond as the weather was too chilly to enjoy it. We would stay there again.

First Trip to Cape Cod

4.6 on October 31, 2010

I decided I would rather have peace and quiet than be near the ocean and I got that. I stayed in the upstairs room and loved the spacious feel. I used the tub one night and fireplace the other. The innkeepers were professional and gracious and intelligent. I love being able to open windows at night. The only thing I would change would be a better place to read. There were wicker chairs, but not good lighting and no footstool, so the bed was really the only place to read. I would stay there again.

Innkeeper Response
This fall we freshened up the Carriage Suite with fresh paint, some new furniture including a love seat and reading lamps. Hope you'll enjoy in future.

We never expected..

4.0 on September 07, 2010

to find such luxurious accommodation in a dog friendly inn but the Alexander Hamilton House provided it. In addition, our host couldn’t have been nicer. It was a lovely weekend and is truly a place for all seasons, on a pond and with a fireplace and whirlpool tub to boot!
