As mentioned in other reviews, cookies and popcorn are provided in the evenings as... More

Now look, you come to Cape Cod for every reason except where you sleep for the night. Well, here is the exception. This B&B is well located for exploring the Cape, or venturing to the islands, has some good restaurants nearby and yet is nice and quiet at night.
