Room Detail

Room 1 The Cat Suite
Brand new addition. Well, the front room is 200 years old like the rest of the house, but we cut a hole in the back wall and built a nice size bedroom. We converted the old bedroom into a sitting and relaxing area that is yours alone, it can also take a full-size twin rollaway bed if there are 3 of you. A great suite has replaced our smallest room. Lots of room now for all those cats to play. King-size wrought iron canopy bed and the innís largest bath with a cast iron tub. First floor facing the back. Gets a great breeze.
Rates: $160 - $250

Room 10 Birds Butterflies Parrots
At the outside of the Servantsí Quarters, this is about our nicest, and certainly brightest, room. Cathedral ceiling, great old bathroom with a cast iron tub and shower. It also has twin French doors leading to a private deck. Heck, grab some of Billís breakfast and bring it back to your own table on the deck. King-size bed and a nice sitting area. Number one choice for folks with dogs.
Rates: $150 - $260

Room 11 Cape Cod Critters
Raccoons, foxes, seagulls and ducks are all over this huge room. The cathedral ceiling shows how the two parts of the barn were joined. This is the largest room we have. Used to be Billís, and he has always pampered himself. Historic queen canopy bed and also has a full size twin if you need it for a third person. Great sitting area, and a Ďdoorí overlooking the lawns and Billís garages.
Rates: $140 - $230

Room 12A Horse and Hound Room
The Ďadultí half of the suite has a queen-size bed. Like the entire second floor of the Barn, there is a high sloping cathedral ceiling. There are chairs, desk and lots of doggie things all over the place. There is actually a somewhat usable rocking horse in here. This suite is the ideal choice for families with older kids or in-laws traveling with them. Two rooms at less cost than two separate rooms.

Room 12B Little Critters Room
Just had to find a place for squirrels, frogs, turtles and all the neat small critters. Also great for smaller people as well. This is the Ďkidsí half of the suite. Two twin beds that came out of my sonís room eons ago. Also has a rocker, carriages and lots of other fun stuff. The two bedrooms are connected by a common private hall that also has the full bathroom connected. There is a tub, shower, and a lot of space.

Room 2 The Dogs Room
Corner room on the first floor that gets all the ocean breezes coming in from the southwest and the sunset to boot. Queen-size bed, small bath with a shower. Small but cozy, fun and relaxing Ė also a great room if you have a dog, as it is next to the door leading to the porch and backyard. In addition to the Dog Theme, thereís a cork wall that any guest can stick up a photo of their dog as dogs love the room!
Rates: $130 - $210

Room 3 The Atlantic Ocean Room
Queen canopy bed, nice bathroom with shower. Front corner room on the first floor. Also another great room for dog owners, as this one is by one of the front doors. Winter is the best, with a large working fireplace and all the wood you need. You wonít want to leave. Animals in this room come from Lemuel Simmons ocean voyages. Whales, dolphins, seagulls and even a winter penguin. Fireplace $25 more (if used.)
Rates: $130 - $210

Room 4 The Simmons Pond Room
Gotta be our most romantic room. Working fireplace in the winter, brightest room in the summer. Queen canopy bed, shower, and all that. Front corner room on the second floor. Gets the morning sun so you can get up and at Ďem early and get your moneyís worth of Cape Cod vacation time. This is our most romantic room, as seven proposals were made here over the years. Animals are from Simmons Pond out back of the Inn. Frogs, toads, turtles, swans, and no mosquitos. Fireplace $20 more (if used.)
Rates: $130 - $200

Room 5 The Owls Room
Lots of hoots on the rear corner of the second floor. Queen brass bed, shower and great cross ventilation. One of the brightest and breeziest rooms overlooking the back yard and Simmons Pond.
Rates: $130 - $210

Room 6 The Rabbit Hutch
This was the original master bedroom, large room with a king bed, and lots of floor space. The bed has a net canopy and a nice sitting area. Huge bath, cast iron tub and shower. Beatrix Potter feels right at home here along with Thumper and Peter. More than 100 odd rabbits live here.
Rates: $150 - $230

Room 7 The Geese Room
Our country room is a nice, very bright barnyard. Runs across the back of the second floor overlooking the lawn. Exposure on three sides. You get more Cape Cod sun and breeze than anyone else. Huge bath, cast iron tub and shower. Cherry Shaker style four-poster queen bed that is a mile off the floor.
Rates: $130 - $210

Room 8 The Hyannis Port Room
The room runs across the side on the second floor and faces every direction with windows all over and a cathedral ceiling. The breeze blows over the dining room and comes in the back windows and out the front. Thatís why we call it Cape Cod air conditioning. Queen Windsor bed, new bath with tub and shower. Pictures and animals all from within a mile of the inn. Off by itself at the top of the stairs and private.
Rates: $130 - $210

Room 9 The Fish Aquarium
This room is a great large bright room with cathedral ceiling. There is a new bathroom with tub and shower. This room can be adapted as either a king-size bedroom or one with two twin beds. There is also enough floor space left over that a couple of kid mattresses can fit in just fine. We also added a private deck on this room. It has a table and chairs, and you can take breakfast back and get a suntan while eating.
Rates: $150 - $250
