My favorite most highly recommended place on the cape. The owners set the bar high and should be proud of their bed and breakfast. This place is awesome from the food to accommodations & entire vibe. The location is prime. They turned a historic property back to its glory.

We very much enjoyed our anniversary weekend stay with Jeff and Carol at the Captain Farris House B&B. They are very gracious and hospitable innkeepers! From the time we arrived until we left, they engaged us in conversation, answered all of our questions about local events and highlights, and provided a recommendation to a fantastic restaurant where we enjoyed a...

Fantastic spot with large, clean rooms; bright and spacious common areas. Carol and Jeff, the new Inn Keepers were very pleasant and helpful suggesting restaurants and attractions. They created a super breakfast each morning. We felt at home during our stay. We will definitely return to this lovely spot on Cape Cod.

We had the room right next to the breakfast area and kitchen on the first floor, there was no noise and we had a great time. We played games in the living room and borrowed...

We were welcomed and made to feel like we were at home staying at The Captain Farris B&B. The owners Carol and Jess are very friendly and helpful. The weather was not so great while we were there, and the owners placed calls to check on ferries (they were closed each time we wanted to go to the islands). They...

The Captain Farris House B & B in Yarmouth, Mass, is in a great location which enabled us to drive the entire Cape. The house is lovely and comfortable and the owners warm and welcoming. The breakfasts were incredible!!!! I wish I were there now having a glass of Port!!!!!!

Spent three nights at The Captain Farris. New owners, Jeff & Carol, are fantastic hosts. The breakfasts are superb. Room 8, Russell's Hideaway, is located upstairs, accessed through the kitchen.
