Best B&B on the Cape

5 on September 09, 2018

My husband and I had the most magical weekend getaway here. The pictures do not do justice to how lovely the rooms are. Everything you need is there. Christiana and Steve were the most amazing hosts. The location is perfect for the beach (5 minute drive to the most beautiful beach I’ve ever been on) and the town to shop and eat. The breakfast is superb. You can taste the care nd attention that goes into making it. The fruit was fresh and sweet, the courses were beautifully presented and exceptionally delicious. I will never stay anyplace else in Cape Cod and we will be back for many more romantic and relaxing getaways.

Whalewalk Inn stay

2.6 on August 28, 2018

We stayed in the barn on the first floor. The room is outdated and feels like you're staying at a great aunts house with the rug, wallpaper and furniture. I have bad allergies and found that the air conditioning filters were both plugged (which I cleaned) and the bathroom fan vent was visibly dirty w/dust, dirt, etc..

OUR STAY 8-13 TILL 8-16-18

5 on August 19, 2018

Our visit could not have been better. Knowing that Cristina and Steve were new this year, we were hopeful that they could simply match the former owners. We were pleasantly surprised to see all the new things that have been added.

Wonderful Experience - Amazing Owners

5 on August 14, 2018

The Inn was incredibly charming, the grounds are serene, breakfasts are amazing, but more importantly the owners were incredibly kind and thoughtful. Highly recommend it to anyone looking for a lovely time on the Cape!

Hidden gem

Spent our 40th anniversary at Whalewalk Inn, very impressive grounds, rooms and service!

Will definitely be staying here again

5 on August 08, 2018

Besides being a beautiful, historic, and immaculately maintained property, the proprietors are super friendly and accommodating. Delicious breakfasts and much needed evening cordials are just the least of the amenities. Thanks for a wonderful stay and we will definitely be seeing you all again. They just need a better camera for their Instagram account because it doesn't do the breakfasts or scenery justice. AJ and Carolina

Friendly and comfy!

Our extended family really enjoyed staying at the Whalewalk Inn. The rooms were clean and cozy, the breakfasts were SO yummy (and a lot of food), and best of all Steve and Christina and their staff were so warm, friendly, and accommodating. They will be my #1 choice when I get back to the Cape!

Great place for vacation

4.4 on July 09, 2018

We have stayed here for a few years and love it. They have a variety of unique rooms to choose from, the new InnKeepers are always available and very friendly, and I love how they cook and serve breakfast in the morning. Great place to stay for a Summer time vacation, or a quiet getaway in the Spring or Fall.

A Favorite B&B

4.6 on July 09, 2018

The new owners of The Whaleback Inn are doing a great job maintaining the quality of the inn and adding their own touches. We've stayed there five years in a row and enjoyed it every time.
