Warm and inviting retreat

Spending the Thanksgiving Holiday with family and friends was enhanced by our stay at the Inn at the Oaks. The accommodations were wonderful and we were made to feel very welcome by the staff.


Very quaint!

Only slight downside was that there wasn't any hot breakfast, but the cereal, scones, bagels, fruit, etc. were delicious! I was just craving some bacon and eggs. Otherwise, it was an awesome place to stay! Would definitely go back. The hot mulled cider and cookies available during the day were also a huge plus. :)


A wonderful find.

We were recommended the Inn at the Oaks by friends who had stayed previously. It didn't disappoint. We had the Sunrise room, which was comfortable and well furnished (although little people might need a ladder to get into bed!!). Big bay windows made the room light. The downstAirs is a maze of lovely cosy and comfortable public rooms, three sitting rooms and two dining areas. The main lounge has a lovely fireplace, which we were grateful for in the cold weather we had. Perfect for a relaxing afternoon by the fire with a good book. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, although we didn't see much of them. Breakfast was good, and very varied, with the addition of fruit salads, but no hot option. The fire pit was great, and we were introduced to s'mores by some fellow guests. Our only criticisms - we could not get wifi in our room, only in the public areas. And more noticeable signage out front would help, as every time we went out we found it difficult to locate the inn on our return. Being English, the Inn at the Oaks epitomised our idea of old American houses, gained mainly from movies! My only regret - that it was too cold for me to relax on one of the lovely verandas! Thankyou, we had a wonderful stay.


Tolles charmantes Haus mit sehr nettem Service.

Ein wirklich sehr schönes, charmantes und sauberes Haus mit individuellen Zimmern und äußerst freundlichem Service. Obwohl wir das kleinste Zimmer (Oak-Room), im obersten Stock, unter dem Dach mit externen aber privatem Bad) hatten, haben wir uns hier wirklich sehr wohl gefühlt! Das Haus ist sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet und bietet neben dem eigenen Zimmer noch verschiedene Räume zum Lesen und Relaxen für die Gäste; plus mehreren Terrassen, einer Veranda und Garten. Jeden Morgen wird ein kontinentales Frühstück u.a. mit frischem Obstsalat und Kuchen serviert. Nachmittags werden Kaffee, Tee und leckere Cookies für die Gäste bereitgestellt. Die Lage ist prima und von hier aus kann man verschiedene Orte, Strände und Parks auf Cape Cod perfekt erreichen. Wir können das Haus nur empfehlen.


Lovely Inn

4.6 on October 19, 2016

We recently spent three days at this lovely old inn in early October. Although it is on a major highway it felt secluded in it's surrounding of mature trees and gardens. It is a short walk from the Salt Marsh Visitors Center of the National Seashore, a fabulous place for walks and biking. It is also well located for visits to the outer Cape beaches and Provincetown. We stayed in the carriage house, which was very roomy, with a comfortable king sized bed and access to a kitchenette. One of the things I liked best about the inn was the number of gathering spots in the main house, for tea, cookies and conversation, or reading a book. It was very welcoming. There's also a patio with a firepit for outdoor eating. The staff were friendly, and helpful with all our questions and requests.The continental breakfast is much more than "danish and coffee"; definitely plenty to fill you up for a day of exploring! We had a great stay and would definitely visit again!


Anniversary getaway

Very comfortable accommodations. Pretty setting.


Perfect short getaway in Eastham

4.4 on October 17, 2016

We stayed at Inn at the Oaks for a short holiday and found the location to be ideal for exploring the Cape and just steps from the National Seashore where trails and beaches await. The Inn staff are so pleasant and attentive. The breakfast (we are vegans) was perfect. We don't expect or require a hot breakfast so having a variety of fruits as well as almond milk and granola was perfect. Our dog enjoyed the special treat awaiting him as well as having an onsite location for his bathroom needs. As soon as we returned home we started planning our next stay at the Inn.


Great Place to stay

This is our second long fall weekend visit to the Inn. We loved it as much this time as the first. Staff are warm and welcoming and very helpful. Rooms are clean and charming. Great proximity to bike paths, beaches and good restaurants. This visit we even enjoyed the fire pit out back and made S'mores (Ingredients compliments of the Inn). We will definitely go back!


lovely inn

3.8 on September 28, 2016

This inn was well maintained. Loved the little nooks and crannies in the common areas. Also, the rockers on the porches were a great place for morning coffee. The yard and flowers were lovely. Good location on the Cape. Even tho it is on the main road, it is set back and with the windows closed, could not hear the traffic.
