Selected as one of the 12 best B&Bs in New England for good reason. Excellent value, great food, comfortable rooms and the innkeepers are outstanding! They'll do everything but brush your teeth and tuck you into bed. Centrally located in Cape Cod so everything is within a day's drive. I recommend staying here the entire time you are in Cape Cod - it's an excellent base to explore the Cape.
Thank you so much for your kind review! We are happy that you enjoyed your stay and hope that when you travel to the Cape again, you'll stay with us!! Best, Nancy & Rick

We returned for a second year and were glad we did. Nancy and Rick are extraordinary innkeepers who make you feel like family, keep a beautiful, clean inn, and will assist you in any way they can. The gourmet breakfasts are an added bonus. Do not miss this hidden gem on 6A.

Rick and Nancy were wonderful hosts. Their property is immaculate, the rooms were very comfortable and the breakfasts were to die for. Full of information about what to do on the Cape, Rick and Nancy made our trip extremely fun and memorable - we would definitely return to the Honeysuckle Hill again when down in the Cape.

My girlfriend and I just got back from the our stay at Honeysuckle Hill and I couldn't wait to get home and share my experience with others who might be thinking about staying on the Cape. We have stayed at many 5-star hotels in the past and my girlfriend has even worked in the hospitality industry. So I am very happy to report that our stay at the Honeysuckle Inn exceeded any of our past vacations experiences. We typically do not like to visit a location more than once but on our drive home we couldn't stop talking about when we could go back! From the historical home, the amazing rooms, incredible local artwork and who could ever forget the spectacular breakfast; The Honeysuckle has definitely earned a special place in our hearts. Our innkeepers / our new friends, Nancy and Rick, were never far away for great suggestions on what to do while on the cape. We happened to forget an umbrella, but Rick and Nancy came to our rescue and allowed us to borrow one of theirs. If we wished to go to the beach and forgot a towel, chair, or even a boogie board; they had it all readily available for all their guests to use --- at no extra charge... very unlike a typical hotel. In our opinion, Honeysuckle Hill is truly a must stay if visiting the Cape!!!!!

To our next visit! From the gracious welcome we received when we FINALLY arrived (ha ha ha) to the warm farewell, and the DELICIOUS breakfasts in between, our stay was fantastic. Rick and Nancy you have a warm, inviting, and most definitely charming bed and breakfast, much like yourselves! Already thinking about September.... Jean and James

Thank you Freddie, and Roberta for a delightful stay, our 3 night stay finished our tour off a treat. Everything exceeded ourexpectations, we had the suite which was perfect for our family, the food was divine, (especially the scones), drinks, ambiance, everything you could want. We intend to return some day and would recommend to anyone.

From the friendly welcome to the farewell breakfast, we were thoroughly pampered throughout our stay. The room decor was charming, the cuisine splendid, and the quiet setting was ideal for a low-stress getaway weekend. The host made us feel at home, providing impeccable recommendations to local attractions and restaurants. If six stars were available, that would be my rating of the Honeysuckle Hill.

This was an extraordinary B & B. We felt at home the minute we walked in. Freddy Riley was a perfect host and we had the best of 'English' welcomes. We were offered refreshments as on arrival. The room we had booked turned out to be a small suite of comfortable rooms, tucked into the top of the house. In the evening we had the opportunity to make whatever 'sundowners' we wanted from an extensive range of spirits, wines, sherries & ports and sodas and to sit and converse with the other residents in the comfortable lounge. Breakfast was an experience - fresh baked scones or cakes at 8.15 followed by a fruit plate, entree and dessert all freshly prepared from local ingredients each morning by Mr Riley. The breakfast is served to all the guests in an elegant dining room. I can't recommend this Inn highly enough - go try it for yourselves
