Our room was rather small, with a shared bath; but that was my fault for waiting too long to make reservations. They provided everything we needed, including chairs to take to an evening concert at the nearby beach. The grounds are exceptional...great job, Peter! We loved the breakfasts...good, healthy choices; and the evenings on the patio around the fire pit were a great way to end our days.

My wife and I chose the Inn because of its close proximity to Nauset Beach but found it to make our vacation so much more. The beach was great but the Inn will make us come back for many years. SOOOO clean !! The grounds were perfect. The room was so cozy and the overall feel of the Inn was home away from home. To top it off, Ownership was so gracious and friendly. Cannot wait to go back !!

Ships Knees exceeded our expections! We enjoyed our stay - the food was delicious,the pool refreshing and the gardens beautiful. The short walk to Nauset Beach was convenient but some of our favorite memories were made talking with other guests at the fire pit! We look forward to returning soon.

My wife and I came to the Cape for just one night to attend an event and were more than pleased with our stay. We were also allowed to arrive early and spend the day at Nauset Beach which was a great perk. The rooms as well as the grounds and pool were very well maintained and the service we received was excellent. We plan on coming back again when we can stay longer.

Have been going to this Inn for many years. It is absolutely amazing, with a beautiful setting and wonderful InnKeepers. Nauset Beach is a stones throw away and a real gem of an ocean beach. Love the Orleans area. This Inn is a must when looking to stay in beautiful Cape Cod.

The Inn was beautiful, in a great location and provided for some wonderful memories. We enjoyed delicious homemade breakfasts on the patio each morning. And loved taking our evening cocktails to the patio at night. Thank you for a great weekend away! We will be back.
