“A perfect stay at CDK House!”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

My husband and I stayed at the Captain David Kelley House for two nights in August. From the moment we arrived Tom and Rick seemed as excited to meet us as we were them, they took a genuine interest in chatting to us and making sure they could help us out with reservations and ideas of what to in the local area. I also took part in Rick's Zumba class on the back deck on the Monday evening, this was great fun and worked off some pounds for the legendary breakfast the next morning!

The presentation of the scones was hilarious and was a really fun way to start off our day, we were lucky to meet Dr LivingScone and Frank Scone-atra whilst we were staying (as well as a rare appearance of the beautiful Mishka the cat). The breakfasts were delicious and just the right amount of food too. The house itself is beautiful and very grand, our room (the Captain Kelley Room) was perfect and had everything we needed. I also recommend a trip to Falmouth when staying here if you have a car, especially a visit to the lovely Glass Onion restaurant.

This is a B&B run by genuinely lovely guys who obviously care about what they do and the people they meet. I only wish we could have spent more time here during our New England road trip, we are already planning to return as soon as possible! Thank you Rick and Tom- we miss you already!

This B&B is truly extraordinary. It's beautiful, immaculately kept both inside and outside, and provides great breakfasts with entertainment and a variety of amenities like evening chocolates (of high quality--and I'm a chocolate snob!). The hosts engage in "scone wars," i.e. each takes a turn at making a special scone and presenting it at breakfast in the guise of a punny character such as "The Scone Ranger" or "Napoleon Sconaparte." The scones are each more delicious than the other, and Rick and Tom are hilarious! It's great to begin the morning with laughter and cheer, as well as with the great three-course breakfast! The rooms are appointed with the guests in mind. None of the economy of low-wattage bulbs--one can actually read in bed at this B&B. The toiletries are great, and the towels, including the beach towels, are of the first quality. Rick and Tom make every attempt to offer help, wonderful suggestions for sight-seeing, restaurants, beaches, galleries. The grounds are lovely, and the hosts encourage the guests to use them as well as the screened-in porch and living room. My husband and I very much hope to visit Captain David Kelly many more times. We were also lucky to be there in August, when Tom and Rick have their friend Steve help out, and what a delightful person he is! Altogether, a most pleasurable two weeks, so much so that we couldn't believe where the time went!

Room Tip: If you want total privacy for your windows and a forest view, choose The Phebe. It's also very q...

My husband, our friends and I stayed at Captain David Kelley House for three night in July. We have traveled in the US several times, mostly staying at Bed & Breakfast places. Captain David Kelley House is by far the best place we have ever stayed. The house is beautiful, everything from the furniture to the silver and china is handpicked to make sure it fits the house. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are clean. The hosts, Rick and Tom, made us feel welcome, gave us tips and advice, but knew when to step back. Every morning we had a three course breakfast of fruit, a hot meal cooked to perfection and a scone prepared by either Rick or Tom. The scones were served with music and a scone-show, so we had a great start of each day of our visit with amazing food and a laugh. We tell everybody in Denmark to go to Cape Cod and to make sure to stay with Rick and Tom.

We cannot say enough wonderful things about the beautiful and gracious Captain David Kelley House! Tom and Rick are the most amazing of hosts, and see to every detail of your stay - from the beauty of the rooms, personal touches during your stay, and of course to the delicious and FUN breakfast. We stayed here on our wedding night and it was private and romantic. We are already planning our 1-year anniversary visit. Thank you!

We had such an amazing time staying at the CDK house. Rick and Tom make you feel as if you have truly been invited into their home and are a part of their family. The place is spotless and they have thought of every possible detail. They genuinely care about their guests and it shows from the moment you arrive. Would love to visit again!

It's more than just a place to sleep. It's an experience.

Rick and Tom obviously enjoy owning and running this well maintained, charming and quiet B&B. It showes in all facets of the operation from the quality of the beds and bedding to all the appointments and amenities throughout their facility. They are always at the ready to help you in any way they can whether it's directions, restaurant suggestions, sight seeing etc. Every morning you wake up to a very delicious breakfast served with very entertaining and humorous characters created by Rick or Tom. These are very versatile creative men that make the stay at Captain David Kelley Hiouse a very relaxing memorable experience.

There is a plaque on the wall as you enter the CDK House that truly expresses our experience there. It reads : " Wake each morning with the thought that something wonderful is about to happen " . So true with Tom & Rick at the helm of their Exceptional B&B !
