Lose yourself in 1850's charm!

We have stayed at The Captain Tom Lawrence Inn twice now, during visits to friends we have in the area. And we will do the same in the future, as this is a wonderful B&B! If you can pretend away the modern conveniences, you’ll feel like you’re living in 1850’s Cape Cod, as the furnishings and layout of the house have a really authentic feel. But all the modern creature comforts are there too. We’ve stayed in both the Parlor Room and the Anaconda Room and loved both. The beds were great, the furnishings beautiful, and the inn’s atmosphere mellow and unhurried. We love kicking back in the parlor/dining area on the first floor with a good book. Hosts Jim and Anne are delightful; never in your face but always ready and willing to answer any questions you might have about the area. Falmouth is often passed by as people whiz off to the Nat’l Seashore, but it has become our favorite town on the cape. The Inn is a short (and pleasant!) walk from town, which is a great place to linger and soak up the ambience. There's great shopping and restaurants, but without the backed-up traffic, the noise, and frenetic pace that some of the Cape towns seem to have during peak season. If you find yourself in this corner of the Cape, book at the Captain Tom Lawrence. Like us, you’ll want to come back again.

Very comfortable

Jim and Anne were the perfect hosts. Very helpful with places to visit and the breakfasts were fantastic. The house was very clean and welcoming and only a few minutes walk from the main street of Falmouth with plenty of restuarants and shops etc. Would thoroughly recommend Captain Lawrence House.

The inn is lovely and a great location but, I was disappointed in my room - very small with a bathroom that you could barely stand in. The innkeepers were not around except for breakfast.

Beautiful House and nice hostess

Anne and Jim were very accommodating of our late arrival and were extremely gracious and hospitable hosts. The room was spotless and very comfortable and the inn was very pleasantly air conditioned on a very hot day. All in all an impeccable stay.
