Bluefish Bed & Breakfast

102 Parallel Street , Harwich, MA 02645 USA (Show map)


Located on a quiet street on lower Cape Cod, Bluefish Bed & Breakfast is known for charming rooms, a quiet and inviting atmosphere and the beautiful, gourmet and locally sourced organic breakfasts that are served every morning prepared by Tim (owner who is a professional chef). A small property with a total of three rooms - one guestroom & 2 suites each are quiet, updated, spotlessly clean and reasonably priced. The location is 1.5 miles to the beach, and minutes to the famous Cape Cod Bike Path, several parks, tennis courts, historic homes, nature walks and cranberry bogs. "We just returned from a perfect weekend at the absolutely fabulous Bluefish Bed and Breakfast. The owners were extremely helpful with local attractions and restaurants, as well as prepared delicious breakfasts. Not only was the food delicious, but it looked wonderful too." Offering two suites and one guestroom guests often comment about how quiet they find both the area and the home. We look forward to meeting you and encourage you to securely book your stay through our website.

Amazing in every way

5 on October 09, 2017

The rooms, the hosts, the dog, the breakfast, are all fabulous. Great location to take in the Cape. Tim is a gifted chef with an eye for detail. Lori is a kind, knowledgeable host that goes out of her way to be of assistance. Tye Tye the dog is good natured and a sweetheart. Don't hesitate to stay here... you'll be glad you did.

Could not have been nicer

We just returned from a 2 night stay with Lori, Tim and their super friendly dog, Tye. The inn is warm, comforting and peaceful. My husband and I immediately felt at home there. Our room, the sunrise room, had a little seating area that was perfect to stretch out and relax. Our bed was so comfortable, offering us a much needed rest. The breakfast was outstanding; the kind of meal that you don't want to take the last bite. Tim is the chef, and does a splendid job! Lori is quick to share where she finds her amazing pottery and decorations that make the inn so warm and cozy. The inn is located in a little neighborhood, and is walkable to a little restaurant/bar, and variety store, along with the adorable down town area with churches, historic society, and thrift shop. I can't say enough about this gem of an inn. I am already looking forward to returning. Thank you, Lori and Tim for making it such a wonderful 2 days.

A Wonderful Cape Cod Vacation

5 on July 15, 2017

The Bluefish Inn is nestled in a quiet neighborhood of historic Harwich, yet an easy walk to the shops, galleries, and restaurants of Harwich Port. We found the location ideal for our one week vacation on Cape Cod. Tim and Lori (and their dog Tye) could not have been more hospitable; they were perfect hosts. Tim is an executive chef at a local restaurant who brings his culinary skills to the breakfast table. You could visit every B&B on the Cape and not have a better morning meal. The old Victorian home exudes history and an earlier time, when the pace of life was slower and more relaxed. The perfect ambiance for a vacation at the Cape. We hope to return!

First visit to Cape Cod and first B&B

5 on July 02, 2017

This was our first experience with a Bed and Breakfast, and we were very happy with Bluefish! The breakfast was amazing! Every morning freshly made by Chef Tim with local organic ingredients! The house is beautiful and in a perfect location! There is a cozy garden area to relax as well. The hospitality was excellent, and we would definitely come back! Lori, Tim, and Tye Tye (their friendly doggie) were so welcoming and very helpful with travel ideas for the Cape.

Hidden gem!

Lovely low key B&B with a super friendly dog, and excellent breakfasts with a focus on locally sourced ingredients. Appreciate the beach towels and beach chairs for guest use. The owners are a wealth of information and guided me to two new beaches I hadn't been to prior as well as a great sandwich shop.

Best BnB Breakfast! Clean, Cozy Rooms.

5 on June 26, 2017

AMAZING BnB. Breakfast was out of this word. The host is a local chef, so this isn't your ordinary BNB breakfast. Clean rooms, private bathrooms, and a nice quite area. Very close to the Cape Cod Rail Trail, great for running and biking. Knowledgeable hosts who helped provide guidance and advice on our visit to ensure we enjoyed our time on the Cape.

Amazing Charming Bed & Breakfast!

5 on July 20, 2009

I stayed at Bluefish with my mom and cousin for a girls' weekend and we had the greatest time. Lori and Tim run an amazing B&B and made our stay so welcoming and easy and comfortable. Their house is just beautiful- everything from the antiques to how accomodating they were. They helped us with our sightseeing questions and directions. Their house was very quiet and we slept very well. Even their doggy was adorable! The breakfast they served everyday was gourmet restaurant quality (they're both chefs) and filled us up all day long. Coffee was great too. I highly recommend Bluefish for a comfortable and friendly place to stay!

Gem of a find!

5 on June 18, 2009

What an amazing gem of a find! The breakfast was better than any we ever had, we actually went up to the room to get the camera it was so pretty. The innnkeepers were so warm and friendly and their suggestions of sights were perfect. The bed & bedding amazing. The affordability for what you get is incredible. We'll be going back and telling EVERYONE about this gem.
