Historic Interest

This Cape Cod inn was first erected in 1887, as the area moved beyond its roots as a whaling village and merchant industrial hub, and embraced its future as a cradle of marine science and a summer playground. Originally built with 30 rooms, the four story gabled building was known early on as the Avery House, commanding waterside views of Great Harbor, crowded with merchant sailing ships, as well as the bustling train terminus next door. Now you can experience history first hand on our second floor by viewing the wallpaper consisting of old registration cards that were uncovered and tastefully designed into wallpaper during major renovations in 2012.

Romantic Interest

Beautiful spacious rooms with high ceilings, pillow top mattresses with luxury linens, clean modern decor, gas fireplaces in some rooms, clawfoot tubs in some rooms, distinctive old wooden floors, great proximity to local pubs and waterholes.
