“A Perfect Combination of Elegance and Relaxing Atmosphere”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

The four of us traveled all the way to Cape Cod from our home in Europe to visit my father on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. Given our short stay, we wanted a place that would capture the essence of old New England while offering comfort, elegance, and a convenient location. The Captain David Kelley House and its wonderful hosts more than fulfilled our every expectation. The meticulously restored house, its beautiful furniture, the hosts' extraordinary attention to detail, the sumptuous breakfasts, and the elegant yet absolutely relaxing atmosphere of this outstanding B&B made our stay simply perfect.

No need to look further for a B&B on Cape Cod. Elegant yet incredibly inviting and comfortable. The most charming hosts. A scrumptious breakfast. I only wish I could have stayed longer. As my stay was business related and only for one night, I am so looking forward to returning with my husband for a "pleasure" stay (and sampling the offerings from the opposing side of the "scone wars"...).

What a charming place and a wonderful winter getaway. We went for New Years and we were so happy that we found this lovely, quaint bed and breakfast. The room was clean and fresh and also comfortable. Rick & Tom clearly take pride in their home. They were wonderful hosts as they served delicious breakfasts in the mornings and left us chocolates at night. There were 2 other couples who were interesting company to eat with at breakfast and we were all well fed but also entertained by Rick and Tom's scone wars and their chef get ups!
I'm so glad we found Captain David Kelley House. It was in a great location. We hope to return next year!

Captain David Kelley House is a beautiful, warm, homey destination. We were there late Nov. Rick and Tom are the ultimate hosts. They made us feel welcome without intruding. We stayed in the Patience Room, it's newly renovated & gorgeous, with all the amenities - flat screen tv, comfy, cozy chairs and bed linens and of course chocolates every night! Coffee and tea are always available in the foyer. Breakfast is a lot of fun with the famous SCONE WARS. Delightful! Definitely would go back and encourage you to try it. We hope to go back when the weather is warm.

The scones, the location, the hospitality, the accommodations...I am not sure where to start. Tom and Rick have done everything right! They are charming hosts with so many repeat visitors. There were 3 other sets of guests at the inn with us, each had visited multiple times. With so many B&Bs on the Cape, the fact that people come far and wide to stay with Tom and Rick again and again should convince you that you are missing out on something great! My friends and I are already planning our next visit.

My wonderful girlfriend took me to this charming bed & breakfast on the Cape in early December for a one night stay and I loved it. The owners, Rick and Tom, were very personable and extremely gracious. They seemed very proud of their establishment and they had every reason to feel that way. The building is on the National Registry of Historic Places. It was a charming 19th Century building with an immaculate attention to detail.The first floor common area was delightfully decorated for the holidays. We stayed in the Rachel Room on the second floor in the quiet back corner of the building. The room was a delight. It was cozy and tastefully decorated and the bed was extremely comfortable. Breakfast was an event. The dining area was festive and comfortable as we sat at the large table with the other guests. The food was delicious and the playful banter between Tom and Rick over whose scones were superior was delightfully amusing. I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Captain David Kelley House. It receives my highest recommendation.

My friend & I stayed at the Captain Kelley House this fall for several days and we were impressed with the way the owners went out of their way to make us comfortable. We had arrived late from a flight from AZ which had landed in RI and the extra attention helped us settle in and settle down after the very long drive. We were entertained daily at breakfast on their lovely porch with their clever antics and costumes and the on going Scone Competition. The decor and the housekeeping were top notch. How could we ever think of staying at an "ordinary" motel/hotel ever again and miss all this luxury???? I used to go to Cape Cod with my family as a little girl and was tickled that the Country Store was still in existence next door to The Captain Kelley House.
We will be back!

Room Tip: All of the rooms are beautifully decorated. They put me in a room off of the street because I am a l...
