Get Away Safely to the Inn at Yarmouth Port

We want you to explore the beauty of Cape Cod with a stay at The Inn at Yarmouth Port! To this end, we want you to know as you consider booking with us, how we have addressed the COVID-19 pandemic in the past, and what you can expect during your stay at The Inn at Yarmouth Port.  That feeling of sudden relaxation as you walk through the front door of our historic sea captain’s home, the smell of Kathleen’s homemade baked goods wafting through the house, the softness of your bed linens and the sophisticated elegance of your surroundings; it’s all here waiting for you whether you’ve been here before or you’re a first time guest. Some things will never change!

We have ample outdoor guest spaces to give you more reasons to rejuvenate and wonder at the extraordinary gifts Nature has to offer.

Check-in/Check-out/ Use of Common Spaces

We will personally check you in and show you around the Inn and look forward to helping to familiarize you with our property so that you have the most enjoyable visit possible. During check-in, we will set up your breakfast time, show you how to operate our keyless entry system, acquaint you with the safety features of your guest room and answer any questions you may have.  Only registered guests may check-in, as visitors are not permitted on site for any reason.  Use of masks within the common areas of the inn will be based upon current local guidance at the time of your visit.

Breakfast & Snacks

The word is out that breakfast at The Inn at Yarmouth Port is something special and we plan to keep it that way! We will keep  adequate spacing of our tables both inside and outside. Guests will be asked to commit to a breakfast time Breakfast times starting at 8:00-9:15 in 15 min increments. Please note that all tables are for up to two guests only. We will not be serving group tables indoors or outdoors–but don\’t worry, your travelling companions will be just a few feet from you! As always, the breakfast menu is a mouthwatering single entrée (chef\’s choice daily) plus two other courses often featuring herbs, vegetables and flowers from our own gardens. The menu is posted in the dining room one day prior. Our homemade granola served with milk or yogurt is available daily as an alternative entrée. With advanced notice, we will continue to support any dietary restrictions. Room service is not available but you may request a continental breakfast to go, in advance, if you’re heading out early on an adventure.
