The perfect B&B for families!

5 on October 01, 2012

The Family House B&B is truly the perfect place for a family to use as home base on a Cape Cod vacation. We only make it to the Cape for 1 long weekend every year or two (we've stayed there 4 or 5 times), but now our first choice is to stay at the Family House. It is basically a home in a residential part of Orleans where the family has configured the place such that two of the rooms have separate entrances (we stay in the suite that can accommodate all four of us – not so sure what the other room is like). If you are looking at taking a vacation on the Cape and care that it be clean, nice, convenient and not too expensive, then this B&B is perfect! The décor of the place reminds me of my Mom’s house, a bit reminiscent of the 80's, but very well kept and organized. The pictures on the website are pretty accurate, but they don’t communicate that it’s immaculate. Given that most of the clientele is spending much of their day on the beach collecting sand, it’s impressive to me that I have never arrived to find the suite anything but immaculate. The host leaves a bunch of different options for breakfast, there is a coffee maker with coffee, cream and sugar, eggs and bacon in the fridge along with some homemade bread or muffins of some sort and some fresh fruit or fruit salad, plus some healthy and junk cereals for anyone who doesn’t want a big breakfast, plus some really yummy granola. So regardless of your proclivities towards breakfast, you would be hard pressed to not find enough selection. You do end up making your own, but you have a full kitchen and it gives you the option of having it whenever and however you choose. This is a full suite, so there is a kitchen and living room area, a bedroom with a queen bed and then behind that a bedroom with twin beds. If you are a family of four like us, this configuration is perfect. Long and short we highly recommend the place and feel like you couldn’t find a better value on the Cape for a family vacation.

Helpful & cordial innkeepers! We had a wonderful deck off of our room overlooking a beautifully landscaped backyard. Delicious baked muffins & breads! They have a larger "family sized" room/apartment & we will come back to share with friends.


Quiet & Relaxing

If you're interested in a place to stay off the beaten path then this is the place for you. The hospitality shown by the innkeepers was exceptional. The accomations are clean, the rates are reasonable. And the location of the B & B is within 3 miles to the beach. My wife and I enjoyed our recent stay at The Family House and we definetely plan on returning.


Perfect for a writer's retreat

The Family House was exactly what I was looking for: a quiet place to read and write and enjoy a lovely backyard full of birds. The owners are very kind and helpful, and really valued my privacy. This was also a great value because I could eat all my meals in, instead of having to find a restaurant every time. Highly recommended!
