Whalewalk Inn & Spa
Ranked #3 of 10 Eastham B&B and Inns
Reviewed 16 August 2014

The Whalewalk is a charming, comfortable Inn with everything you will need for a good stay. We had the Spa suite which was very roomy. The dining room was very big although the kitchen was only equipped with a bar frig and sink. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was spacious with a great soaker tub. The breakfast as everyone has stated is delicious. The hosts, Kevin and Linda are perfect Inn keepers. The only thing I wish was that the Whalewalk was closer to something, a beach, a town, a restaurant that you could walk to. If you want to be away from everything then it is a perfect spot for you.

We spent four wonderful nights at the Whalewalk Inn. Kevin, Elaine and their family could not be nicer or more accommodating. The rooms are beautifully decorated. The breakfasts were delicious. They were very quick to recommend places of interest and restaurants. We will definitely return to Cape Cod and the Whalewalk Inn.

Room Tip: We were in the carriage house. It was so quiet and peaceful.

I have been vacationing in Cape Cod for years and this is the best lodging I found. Quiet and peaceful, clean and comfortable rooms decorated with good taste. Elaine, one of the innkeepers, is one of the best chef I ever met; the breakfasts are succulent, made with fresh and first quality ingredients. Kevin, her husband, is very generous and welcoming. He has a wealth of information he shares on Cape Cod: restaurants, fishing, sailing, shops...you name it!. I recommand this Inn to anyone who likes a medium-size quiet establishment, beautiful gardens and good food. Christine

What a find in an old, quiet neighborhood setting; very comfortable room, and superb breakfasts. Location ideal for visiting National Seashore and Provincetown, close to Cape Cod Railtrail. The hosts and staff were friendly and accommodating. We will return!

Room Tip: We stayed in the guest house, lovely setting

We had booked two nights in the Carriage House. The AC unit didn't seem to respond to any attempt to regulate it. Bed was comfortable, and the unit was clean. We were very pleased. However in the AM my girlfriend had a medical emergency and we had to leave immediately. I turned in the key to the owner and explained the situation. I was not looking for nor did I ask for any compensation or refund. The only thing the owner said was "you are still responsible for the room charge." I would have expected something like, "I'm so sorry to hear that, Is there anything I can do for you?" "Do you know where the closest emergency room is?" Can I help you with your bags or bikes". I sent an email to the owner a week ago and never received a response. Half the reason I stay at B&B's is for the folksy atmosphere, I'm sorry to say this is absent here.

We have visited the Cape 11 times and we always stay at the Whalewalk Inn. Kevin and Elaine Conlin are the most gracious hosts and feel like extended family to us. Their children Heather and Brendan have grown up to wonderfully compliment their parent's hospitality. The breakfasts are inventive and always delicious.. They gladly accommodate any special dietary needs.The Inn is centrally located to explore all of the Cape. The Cape Cod National Seashore is 5 minutes away.

I came back one year later as promised and Bill and Elaine did not disappoint. We, and all other guests are treated as family. The penthouse is still beautiful and clean and the deck and grounds are peaceful. The morning breakfast is the highlight of the morning no matter what my husband and I have planned to see and do. You can't beat the fresh, homemade morning menu.

I was a guest while a bridal party had also booked for the weekend. Wedding bookings are pretty common from what I hear. The grounds are beautiful for photography and the cottages are comfortable for even the most demanding and discriminating guest. For those who do not want to climb stairs, please make sure to book a ground floor cottage. The spa is great, the exercise room is well kept and the sauna and hot tub are a nice treat. My husband and I will be back next year for sure and I will definitely get the massage treatment this time.

Reader’s Choice Silver Award Winner for the Outer Cape for 2011Readers of Cape Cod Life Magazine have voted, and we are the Silver 2011 winners of the Best of the Cape and Islands Bed & Breakfast Inn on the Outer Cape!The Boston Globe Magazine Travel Section, Sunday, May 15, 2011 highlighted different summer destinations for New England. Eastham was described as a “Cape Cod retreat, home of the National Seashore, where rolling dunes serve as a soft welcome mat for the steady surf.” Only two businesses were mentioned -- The Whalewalk Inn & Spa, as the lodging choice; and Arnold’s Lobster House on Route 6, as the restaurant of choice.Get away from the hustle and bustle of your every day life. Come and relax at Cape Cod’s most romantic and secluded country Inn – quietly tucked away on a country road, but centrally located to all the attractions that make Cape Cod so special. Walk the ‘Outer Cape’ beaches, listening to the soothing sound of the waves, lapping on Cape Cod Bay or crashing at the National Seashore. Partake in some of the finest dining that the Cape has to offer, beginning here each day with a gourmet breakfast served to you at your own private table.Become a part of the history that makes this Inn so special. 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
