This historic B&B is a step up from some of the others along Route 6A, by virtue of the size of the rooms and the amenities. With fancy linens and antique furnishings, it also feels more luxurious, and it’s within walking distance of Barnstable Harbor, Millway Beach, and Barnstable Village. The inn was built in 1699, making it one of the oldest B&B buildings on the Cape. Its rich heritage can be seen in the wide-board floors, huge hearth fireplaces, and a secret passageway connecting the upstairs to the downstairs (legend has it that Tories hid here during the Revolutionary War). The patio is a particularly nice place to enjoy the ample hot breakfasts, served here on sunny mornings.
