Top 200 Places: Simmons Homestead Inn on Cape Cod

Wednesday, June 13th, 2012

Simmons Homestead Inn
288 Scudder Ave.
Hyannis Port,
Massachusetts 02647

The 1800 Sea Captain’s estate is now the only Bed & Breakfast Inn in Hyannis Port in the center of Cape Cod. 14 rooms in two buildings. Anything but formal, the Inn is just a great place to call your home while on the Cape. Full breakfasts, wine hour(s), free bikes, beach stuff, billiards and a bunch more. People friendly as well as dog-friendly. You’ll feel a zillion miles away, yet be a half mile from anything, town, beaches, ferries and such. It’s really a wonderful place to hang out at and venture out from. We feel it is, and so do all the major guidebooks, and most of the folks who have stayed here and come back. Just a chance to see the collection of over 50 classic red sports cars behind the Inn at Toad Hall is probably worth the trip by itself.
