Set on 7 acres overlooking Jones Pond, the Coonamessett has been a reliable lodging choice since the 1950s; with new management in recent years, it has undergone significant renovations and a freshening up. Guest are no doubt drawn to the folksy charm of the place, the historic red clapboard farmhouse exterior and gardens resplendent with flowers, and, inside, the large function rooms. Most of the rooms are suites that include a sitting room, which comes in handy if you (or your partner) are an early riser. The location is perfect as a base to explore Falmouth. The tavern is open for guests only for lunch and dinner and an elaborate Sunday brunch. It serves traditional New England fare, like seafood stew and roasted chicken.
