The location of this inn is perfect if you are goingto Nauset Beach, it is about a 10 minute easy walk. The room was small but we did book the compact queen room so we knew that. Very nice pool area and grounds are beautiful. The breakfast was very tasty and beautifully presented. Would definitely return

As always , we had a great time at Ship's Knees Inn. Peter & Denise make everyone feel at home. You can walk to the beach. You are close to town , shopping , the playhouse as well as other Cape Cod attractions. They have beautifully presented continental breakfast and you are minutes from lunch and/ or dinner venues

My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at the Ship's Knee Inn. The grounds were beautiful (we enjoyed the pool) and just a walk down the street from the beach! The provided beach chairs and boogie boards were awesome. Peter and Denise were great hosts and provided awesome recommendations for food and activities in the area. All around a great stay at the Ship's Knees, we hope to visit again!

As always , we had a great time at this fabulous location within walking distance of Nauset Beach. The dining is a beautiful presentation of variety items at breakfast and a number of choices nearby for lunch & dinner. There is the Playhouse close by and a lot of stores in town for browsing. Peter & Denise make everyone feel welcome. If you want the flavor of Cape Cod we highly recommend Ship's Knees Inn.

We stayed at the inn for 3 nights and wished we could have stayed longer. Beautiful grounds! Rooms are comfortable and clean. Everything about our stay was wonderful. Have recommended the inn already to friends and coworkers.

We just spent a few nights at Ship's Knees again after a 5-year gap. (Where does the time go?) Peter welcomed us as if we had just been there last year. Denise does an excellent job paying attention to details. The location, facility and grounds are all very appealing - especially being able to walk down the hill to Nauset Beach. Breakfast each morning was delicious, and the other guests were friendly. We are looking forward to returning next summer!
