Overview

Historic property in the oldest town on Cape Cod
Some guests said the on-site dining was only so-so

At this charming boutique hotel in Sandwich, Massachusetts, guests are privy to genuine hospitality and well-manicured gardens, not to mention easy access to Cape Cod's National Sea Shore and scenic hiking trails. Recent visitors especially commend the hotel's staff, which they say goes above and beyond to deliver attentive and personalized service. The property's 48 accommodations also earn a nod of approval from travelers thanks to their luxurious touches, like spacious whirlpool tubs, Olive Branch Botanicals bath products, flat-screen TVs and four-poster or canopied beds. The Inn's suites tender even more extravagances, like heated tile floors and working fireplaces. After you've settled in your digs, slip away to the Tavern, for small bites such as lobster chowder and sea scallops wrapped in bacon. For a more indulgent meal, reserve a table in one of the Inn's dining rooms, each of which offers an intimate setting paired with contemporary American cuisine. While most guests were pleased with the cuisine, some said for the price it was only so-so. Once you've satiated your appetite, heighten your level of relaxation with a body wrap or a deep tissue massage at the Beach Plum Spa. Most patrons were pleased with the spa services and meals at the on-site eateries, but noted the rooms could use some freshening up.
