Heading off tomorrow for a jaunt that starts in Wellfleet, MA via Logan to Barcelona and then to France. Along the way, traveling and visiting with good friends and family, we will do our best to absorb the abundant offerings of coastal, mountain, countryside and city landscapes. We'll send some pictures of our favorite stops and sights. All ...

How has this b&b rated in the past?
Jan and Charlie are warm, engaging and gracious hosts. You feel like you are staying with friends that you have not seen in a while. Whether it was Jan's delicious daily breakfasts, fresh baked cookies in the afternoon, a complimentary glass of wine near dinner or a special nightcap later in the evening, I always felt like a valued visitor.
The Inn is very clean and well maintained. We especially took advantage of lounging in the living room to peruse the local restaurant menus and attraction pamphlets they have thoughtfully made available. Upon our arrival, Charlie gave us a brief history of the Inn and the Sandwich area and provided us a map of the area with his recommendations on sites to see and things to do. Jan shared her love of the area and their personal history that brought them to the point of owning and operating this lovely B&B where they also reside.
My only caution would be that the back staircase leading to our room and others is steep and narrow and could be a bit challenging for some. If this is a concern, I recommend you ask about the other fine rooms that are more easily accessed.
