Media Mention – New England Today
“You may feel as though you’re stepping back in time when you tread the century-old wide-plank pine floors at this c. 1843 Greek Revival manse. But odds are the original owner never slept as soundly as guests do today. Each of the seven rooms here is outfitted with a king-sized bed and luxury linens; other restful touches include soaking tubs and fireplaces. The inn may be best known, however, for its gourmet breakfasts, which change seasonally and feature locally grown produce. Highlights have included frittatas made with local asparagus, mushroom, and fontina cheese; and peach shortcakes with homemade almond biscuits. And look for the inn’s signature breakfast sausage, created with Peterson’s Market in Yarmouth Port.”

“Another standout inn experience comes at the historic Inn at Yarmouth Port, Cape Cod, a restored sea captain’s house built using lumber from his ship. I’m still drooling at the memory of fresh muffins bursting with cranberries and blueberries, which owner Kathleen makes us for breakfast. A former professional opera singer, warm and interesting Kathleen’s mission is: ‘to nourish our guests in body and soul’.”
Media Mention – The Echo
“Another stand-out inn experience comes a few days later at the Inn at Yarmouth Port, Cape Cod(www.theinnatyarmouthport.com) run by hospitable retired opera singer Kathleen and her husband Chuck. It’s the perfect mainstay for our journey down to Providence, Rhode Island’s capital, a city that bursts with more sights, great food and history. So let the road trip go on!”
Perfect in Every Way!
My boyfriend and I stumbled on the Inn at Yarmouth Port when searching for a romantic, luxurious B&B in the Cape, and this place truly exceeded our expectations. We are both sort of travel snobs, and expect the best. I’m sometimes leery of B&B’s because they can have that dusty, dated vibe. Not the case with the Inn at Yarmouth Port. Kathleen and Chuck could seriously charge double what they do for an overnight stay. Their gorgeous, updated inn competes with some of the luxury resorts I’ve visited in the Relais & Chateaux group, and their breakfasts are not to be missed. Everything previous reviewers have written is true: The rooms and bathrooms are beautiful and reflect modern French country design. Their food is absolutely out of this world. But the real stars here are Kathleen and Chuck. They were born for a career in hospitality, and make you feel so warm and welcome throughout your stay. If you are looking for a truly beautiful, upscale inn on the Cape, your search ends here.
Nothing Short of Fabulous!
“We just returned from our second stay (in only 3 months!) at The Inn at Yarmouth Port, and whether you are looking for a romantic getaway, a change of scenery for remote working, a comfortable place to stay while visiting the Cape, a celebration for a special occasion, or a rejuvenating vacation, then this place is for you! And yes…everything about it is as fabulous as it looks online! If you are hesitant to stay at an inn during Covid, you will rest assured that the innkeepers are working tirelessly to ensure your safety. Masks are worn in all common areas, sanitizer and disinfecting wipes are everywhere, and clever ways to ensure that you get clean towels delivered and trash removed have been put in place. Breakfast is staggered so as to ensure plenty of room for distancing, and is served outside in nice weather. No one enters your room once you check in, but if you alert the innkeepers to any needs you have, they will address them expediently. When you book a room online, the innkeeper calls you personally to discuss the safety measures in place and reviews them upon your arrival. We felt incredibly confident that our health was not compromised, which is why we felt comfortable returning.
Located on scenic 6A, the inn is the quintessential Cape Cod captain’s house, and many of the original features that evoke that quaint, old time charm remain. The rooms and common areas are tastefully and elegantly decorated, yet cozy and comfortable. We stayed in the Brewster Room and the Blue Point Room, and both were beautifully appointed. My favorite feature of the rooms is that they maintain the old, such as the wide plank floors, moulding, and fireplaces, while embracing the new with all the amenities guests appreciate, such as modern, private baths (love the shower in the Brewster room!), phone chargers, clothes steamers, hair dryers, and dimmer lighting on the bedposts. The linens are butter soft, and you will not find skimpy, scratchy hotel towels here! Conveniently, there is always a water carafe and glasses in the room, as well as goodies, such as packaged snacks and chocolates. Fresh flowers in the room are a fragrant and cheerful touch! The patio with firepit and manicured yard are a lovely place to dine, read, chat, or relax (weather permitting).
Close by are Gray’s Beach (a wonderful recreation area and stunning views!) and a variety of restaurants, some of which are just a short walking distance. Yarmouth Port is perfectly positioned mid-Cape, so venturing off to visit other areas of the Cape are easy day trips. Believe me when I say that the best part of going out for the day is returning to the inn, as Kathleen leaves everyone homemade, individually packaged baked goods in the dining room. My absolute favorite is her chocolate chip cranberry cookies- so delicious! Speaking of delicious, the breakfast (part of your stay) is a hearty, 3 course meal that is painstakingly and lovingly planned and prepared by innkeeper Kathleen. Each course is a masterpiece, and includes produce and herbs grown on the property, as well as ingredients (such as fresh bread and homemade breakfast sausage) sourced from local proprietors. While you dine on the fresh fruit and muffin course, Kathleen prepares your main dish hot, fresh, and to your specifications. You will not find a breakfast like this at any restaurant!
At the heart of this home (it absolutely feels like going home when you stay there) are the innkeepers, Chuck and Kathleen. You truly feel valued and welcomed by them at every moment. They are warm, sincere, hard-working, talented, and down to earth. They go above and beyond to ensure that you are no less than delighted at every moment, and they relish in celebrating you in whatever way possible. The evening of my birthday, I returned from dinner to a baked-from-scratch cake filled with Kathleen’s homemade strawberry preserves and topped with fresh roses. It was truly a special moment!”
Wonderful Weekend Escape
“When I travel there are a few things I view as non-negotiable wants, especially for a stay at a B&B. I want a high level of cleanliness and organization, I want to be comfortable, want great value, and want to have the experience end in the desire to return again and again. Not only did the Inn at Yarmouth Port deliver on all four, but provided even more than I expected: Amazing attention to detail. Exceptional customer service. Extraordinarily good food and baked treats as part of the entire inn experience. Innkeepers Kathleen and Chuck Day have hit a grand slam.
The inn has been lovingly and tastefully restored, maintaining the integrity of the Greek Revival period in which it was built while remaining inviting and comfortable. The grounds surrounding the inn are equally as lovely, providing great space for eating, reading, drinking, talking; it feels very homey and welcoming, not pretentious or precious. A special perk is their commitment to the environment in the products they use and what is made available for your use – sustainable, recyclable. I like that.
When was the last time you stayed in a place where not only were there sufficient and convenient outlets near your bedside, but an entire array for multiple cords and USB ports? The inn has them. Need bottled water, wine glasses, a snack, a cup of coffee or tea? All available to you when you want them, at no additional cost. Desirous of knowledgeable, personable innkeepers who interact without being intrusive, making your stay all the more lovely? Kathleen and Chuck are your people.
The first morning there, we were asked as to a beverage of choice with our breakfast. I’m a decaf tea drinker; turns out the herbal tea I usually drink they didn’t have. It wasn’t a problem, I didn’t give it a second thought, and was fully prepared to do without. The next morning I was offered that tea; they made sure I had what I wanted the next day.
The food: Amazing. I’m accustomed to B&Bs who provide a continental breakfast and consider that to be part of the experience. Not here. Kathleen and Chuck start your day off properly with a beautiful plate of fruit (we had a poached pear our first morning) followed by a frittata, Pain Perdu, breakfast Panini or other. Special dietary need? They have you covered. Need a sweet treat during the day? Dig into the box of cookies baked just for you. These two have been thoughtful and intentional in their design of the inn, what they offer, and the excellence with which it is all delivered. I love this place.”
I should preface this review by saying I think I’ve only used the word “exquisite” 2 or 3 times in my life! I’ve been saving it for special occasions like this. Hubby and I had a fabulous stay at this B&B in early July.
Upon our arrival we were greeted by the wonderful innkeeper, Kathy. She was incredibly friendly and really took pride in her Inn. She showed us around and talked to us like we had known each other for years. Very welcoming and she took a genuine interest in us and our plans on the Cape. Our room was gorgeous! Fresh flowers, fresh cookies, very clean and classy! It felt fancy but still had that old Cape Cod charm.
Breakfast was amazing! The waitress, Stacy, was very friendly and kind. Kathy was also there and came out and talked to us. The food was very creative and fancy and the displays were gorgeous! Kathy used fresh flowers from her garden to add color to the plates (see my pictures).
On our 2nd night at the Inn, hubby and I got home late. We went to get a glass (no plastic-awesome!) bottle of water and to see what goodies Kathy left out for guests. The first night was cookies, the second night was a Tea Cake. As we quietly cut a piece of cake, Kathy came out of the kitchen and talked to us. She was so excited to hear about our day. We were impressed with her hard work and dedication, she was still working at 11pm at night! We’ve stayed in B&Bs before but have never seen this many “extra touches” or such care and hard work from an Innkeeper.
The location is perfect. The gardens are gorgeous and well cared for. Breakfast is served indoors or outdoors on a patio (private tables) starting at 8am. We had such a wonderful time and of all the places I’ve ever stayed, I think I would recommend this place the most! It was just lovely. I can’t say enough good things about this beautiful Inn!! I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!!
Hostess With the Mostess
My stay at the Inn at Yarmouth Port was one of the best vacations I have had. Kathleen went above and beyond to make our experience personalized and comfortable. When we were late checking in to the B&B, Kathleen, the hostess, called to check on us to make sure we weren’t having car trouble. She also packed us a beach bag with snacks and beach towels when we forgot ours at home. Kathleen recommended great local restaurants. Several mornings we over slept and Kathleen made our bedding and replaced our towels despite missing the innkeeper in the morning. Fresh flowers at the bedside and throughout the house. Beautiful gardens. Very soft and comfortable sheets and bedding. I could definitely return for another great vacation!! Highly recommend.
Amazing Experience at The Inn at Yarmouth Port
If I could give the Inn at Yarmouth Port more than 5 stars I would! Kathleen and Chuck were AMAZING and very accommodating. I wouldn’t have changed a thing except to stay more days! We wanted a nice, relaxing getaway weekend trip and that is exactly what we got. The pictures on their website are exactly what the place looks like. The bed was comfortable, the service was fantastic, and don’t even get me started over the food! DELICIOUS! Definitely plan to come back as soon as we can and highly recommend the Inn at Yarmouth Port for anyone – families, couples, friends!
