My husband I vacationed at the Fort Hill Bed and Breakfast in Eastham, staying in the Nantucket Cottage for six days. The location of this B&B cannot be beat. The quiet setting is adjacent to the National Seashore, with trails leading out into woods and fields with stunning views of Nauset Marsh and a glimpse of Coast Guard Beach on the horizon. The historic Penniman House is directly across the road. The entire neighborhood has a19th century aura.The innkeepers, Jean and Gordon Avery, were welcoming in every way and made us feel completely at home. Each day offered new pleasures at the breakfast table. Jean is an exceptional and imaginative cook. Gordon is very gracious and attentive. He provided many great suggestions for restaurants and ways we could enjoy our Cape experience.
The spacious and charming Nantucket Cottage is a separate private lodging located close to the main house. The living room with its cathedral ceilings and views across the lawn and gardens to the distant marshes was perfect for reading and relaxing.The well-apportioned kitchen with a tiny refrigerator, microwave, and sink allowed us to make our lunch daily before heading out on a new adventure. A cozy bedroom with a comfortable queen size bed was on a second floor above the living room.
Jean and Gordon have done a marvelous job of creating a relaxing, enticing, special, home-like destination that we will surely return to frequently.
