We spent a long weekend here recently. Our room was in the carriage house which is a building separate from the main inn with 6 rooms. It was lovely with all the amenities we needed including fridge, fireplace tv patio. The owners are nice people and not intrusive(which I like-some inn or b & b owners are just too in your face wanting to chat every morning and find out what you've been doing.) I really liked the attention to detail-complimentary snacks, soda and after dinner drinks; glassware for all your needs; coffee brought over to the carriage house before breakfast, beach towels, your room made up by the time you got back from breakfast.
The breakfasts were delicious: something different every day and a lot of food. You could also opt for fruit and granola if you preferred. Nice to eat on the patio.
We like the location, very quick trip to Orleans center, Eastham and even Wellfleet.
A few tiny quibbles: we could hear the people in the next room through the wall when they were speaking normally and the bed was very creaky,
Overall, very good experience would recommend highly.

The Inn was built in 1830 for Henry Harding, a renowned whaling captain. In the early nineteen hundreds it became a gentleman’s farm, known as Whalewalk Farm, then owned by the Kent family of PR Lorillard tobacco fame. With a cow and horse still living in what is now the Salt Box Cottage, the farm was purchased in 1953 and turned into an inn. Since that time it has been authentically restored and creatively redecorated. The common rooms are filled with the Innkeeper’s extensive Waterford Crystal collection, 19th century country antiques from England and France, fresh flowers, and oriental rugs for a warm welcome to start your stay. ... more less
