The Nauset House Inn

143 Beach Road , East Orleans, MA 02643 USA (Show map)


Originally built as a farmhouse around 1810, the Nauset House Inn is one of the most charming Inns on Cape Cod. To top it off, it's just a short walk to Nauset Beach. Owned by the National Park Service and stretching for 10 miles on the Atlantic, Nauset Beach is one of the most beautiful sandy shorelines to dot the eastern coast. Family owned and operated since 1982, the Nauset House provides the perfect retreat from the fast pace of the workaday world. Nestled within 100 year old apple trees, each of the 14 hand crafted guest rooms are tastefully and artistically appointed. The rooms feature hand painted furniture, floral stencils and trompe l'oeil walls. Everyone is welcomed into the large comfortable commons room upon arrival. It is in the commons room that guests are treated to complimentary wine, cranberry juice and hors d'oevres daily at 5:30. Just off the commons room you will find the brick floored dining room. With it's open hearth and beamed ceiling it lends an English pub like feeling to the complimentary full breakfast that is offered every morning. Check out our website and give us a call. We would love to share Nauset House Inn with you.

Coming HOME

5 on August 24, 2017

One of my sisters and I 'fell' upon this gem 20 years ago..... I promised myself I would stay there 'some day'. I DID! And I have been coming back almost every summertime since!!! And sisters come, too!! The rooms are so cozy and comfortable. The morning meal rivals any 5 star restaurant ( complete with edible garnish from the Inn Keeper's Garden :)) Evening wine and snacks served. It is a walk to Nauset Beach. A slice of Heaven-On-Earth! John and Cindy ( and Judy ) could not be more inviting, and the Inn is sprinkled with the soulful art Of Diane Johnson, original Inn Kweeper and Cindy's Mom! GO!!!!

My home not at home

I have been going to the Nauset House in now for 14 years!!! I have only great things to say about the customer service, comfort and coziness of the Inn. John and Cindy and Judy ( receptionist) go above and beyond to be helpful with information on local eating establishments, and things to do in the area, and most of all that you are happy there. This year, four of my five sisters are joining me!! Lorena M. Hart, Madbury NH

My friend and I stayed only one night, and we were very impressed..we wanted to stay 2 weeks.... The rooms are very clean and beautiful. This Inn has so many beautiful areas, where you can find relaxation and peace.... The breakfast is absolutely delicious and the service is also wonderful . We can't wait to visit again

Charming, comfortable, and affordable B&B within walking distance to the beach

4.6 on February 02, 2010

Everything you would expect from a New England B&B and more - beautifully maintained Colonial home, gracious innkeepers, and delicious, hearty breakfasts. We stayed in the Cranberry Room - well-appointed, cozy, a good value. At night, we enjoyed mingling with other guests over wine and hors d'oeuvres while finding a restaurant for dinner, and playing board games upon our return. We also enjoyed late-night walks to the beach, only 15 minutes away. Only criticism - the bed in the Cranberry Room was a bit uncomfortable and perhaps could be replaced.

This inn was the best b&b we have ever stayed at. Beautiful, comfortable rooms, immaculately kept, delicious, multiple choice for breakfast including eggs - not just a bun or cold cereal, although there was that too. There was a very pleasant, sociable atmosphere with other guests thanks to breakfast served "family style" at big tables and a glass of wine or fruit juice offered at the end of the day. Most of the guests were repeaters and were a very pleasant group from all over the world. The owners were most thoughtful and gave excellent advice on places to go, things to do and where to eat. Real HOSTS.

An exceptional rarity in country inns

Located within walking distance of beautiful beaches, Nauset House inn exudes warmth, charm and friendliness at a level far above most country inns. Attention to detail and guest comforts is paramount. Arrive as a guest, leave as a friend
