Dog & Pet Friendly

The Simmons Homestead, in Hyannis Port is a dog-friendly Cape Cod inn, allowing dogs to vacation with you year-round. We provide all sorts of maps and handouts showing where you can take the pup. There are great beaches, ponds and walking trails that will allow dogs even in the Summer. We even have lists of restaurants that allow dogs at the outside tables in the warmer months. If you are going out, you can leave the dog in the room, just like you would at home. If you want, you can get take-out and bring it back to the Inn and eat with the dog on the outside porch or in the Common Room.

We take dogs of any size and you can have more than one in many cases. There is a $25 charge for the extra cleaning. They all MUST have current flea & tick medication.

We have had guests with rabbits, parrots, birds, hamsters and some other caged critters. We can also take sheep if you tie them in the back yard and have them eat and mow the grass. Can’t take horses anymore as their owners just don’t pick up poop as they should.

We can’t take cats due to people having allergies. There are two dozen cats in the Annex, but they aren’t allowed in the Inn.

“Simmons Homestead is your home away from home.”
