The Simmons Homestead Inn
The only Bed & Breakfast Inn in Hyannis Port and truly reflects the spirit of old Cape Cod. It was built in 1800 by Lemuel Simmons, a somewhat famous old sea captain and was a private estate until 1988 when Bill took it over, renovated the main house and the barn into a great Bed and Breakfast Inn providing a warm, friendly, relaxing, and romantic atmosphere. It is a place to meet new friends, to feel at home, and relax. It’s a pleasant haven to retire to after a day of exploring. It is situated where you can wander around Cape Cod, enjoy the beach, or take a day trip to Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard. At the end of the day, you return to the Inn, sit on the porch with wine, and relax. Then go to some of the best restaurants on all of Cape Cod, which are a few minutes away. Doesn’t get any better than this.
All the rooms are unique and nicely furnished, some with canopy beds, brass beds and all with plants, animals, love and fun. All of the rooms have wonderful Cape Cod animal themes. We didn’t start out with the idea of animal themes. Just kinda grew like Topsey. Guests have done their part to add to the clutter. Over the years, there are dozens of critters added to the rooms by guests. By now, it is totally out of control.
There are 14 guest rooms in total, including a two bedroom suites set up just for families, and the Cat Room which is a two room suite with a sitting area and a separate king size bedroom. The rooms have either king or queen size beds. One can have two twins. The two rooms, 9 & 10, in the back Servants Quarters both have private enclosed decks which are great for dogs as well as people. Click on the rooms and prices button and you can see them all. They all have their own private bathrooms, with irons, hair dryers and all that. All rooms have WiFi, new flat screen TVs, air conditioning and individual heat controls. You get a full breakfast in the mornings and Wine Hour in the evening.
In the winter two rooms have working fireplaces and we keep one going in the common room during wine hour and when you come back and just want to sit and read by the fire. You can also wander over to the Annex, check out the Single Malt Collection, largest in America with well over 600 different malts. Check out the Billiard Room (pool hall to you city folk) down stairs and shoot a game or two. Heck, bring the Wine Hour mugs over and relax. It’s all part of the coolest, funnest Inn on the Cape or maybe anywhere.
