“Had a wonderful 10 year anniversary trip to the Cape”
Reviewed 18 February 2013

My husband and I spent 2 nights at Bluefish in September 2012. This place changed the way we think about B&Bs. The couple who run the place were excellent. They gave us space to enjoy our breakfast, and the food was so good. The second day we started with this delicious puff pastry thinking that was it, then they came out with a huge second course. We wanted to cycle around, and they helped us with maps and where to rent. Also they gave us suggestions of restaurants that use local products and that to us always makes for a more delicious meal. I wish we had stayed one more day. The rooms have character and make you feel like you are at a seaside cottage. It was a beautiful place to unwind, get some fresh air and enjoy the beauty of Cape cod. Highly recommended.

My husband and I stayed at Bluefish Bed & Breakfast in August and we had a great time! Tim and Lori were very helpful in suggesting places to go (it was our first time in Cape Cod) and directions. The food for breakfast was delicious!!! Thanks Tim and Lori!

We had a two night stay in October and were very pleased. Tim is quite obviously a professional chef. Our breakfasts were delicious works of art. I'm gluten free, and Tim was able to make two memorable, original breakfasts - chickpea flour pancakes with scrambled eggs, topped with garden fresh veggies and herbs, then the next morning buckwheat waffles with sautéed apples, Maine blueberries, whipped cream and real maple syrup. My morning fried egg is gonna look pretty sad for the next few weeks by comparison....

We went to the cape to take advantage of the off season light crowds on the rail trail. This bnb is a very short distance to the trail and close to the rotary.

The house was lovely, the hosts were friendly, the bed was comfortable and their dog was so cute. The only thing that I found odd was that the beds weren't made up between nights. My husband LOVED this as he hates people in "his" room, but I love a made bed. If you're one of those folks that always hangs a do not disturb sign outside your room, this might be your favorite spot ever.

We stayed in a suite and considering the driving and the outings, it was restorative to have a warm, well appointed home to return to after the great Cape adventures. We found the location central and the vibe laissez faire yet helpful and hospitable. It's cozy yet clean and uncluttered , with just a few tasteful historical nods related to the area (and great photography Tim!). Lori and Tim are passionate about the recipes, and the coffee is tasty (their own blend available to take home, which we did). I recommend all around.

From the perfect, central Cape location, to the attention to comfortable details, we couldn't have been happier with our stay. Every delicious item on our breakfast table was sourced locally- some as local as the back yard. Much of it was organic, coffee especially ground for Bluefish (heavenly) is from a roaster in the Berkshires, our eggs were from Chatham. The owners definitely live their motto of Buy Fresh, Buy Local- which helps the economy of Cape Cod and assures the finest quality food on the breakfast menu- which may I say is divine! During our stay we were treated to Blueberry Bread French Toast served with fresh Maine wild Blueberries, backyard raspberries, and something new for us- ground cherries from their yard. Scrumptious!
Another morning saw fresh Chatham eggs with a wedge of local cheese and a yummy slice of "pie" made from fresh zucchini, potatoes and local herbs. Treat yourself to a stay here- you won't be sorry! In fact, you'll be back :-)

Room Tip: 3 rooms to choose from- 2 have sitting rooms and dedicated bathrooms. the other has no sitting room...

i think that the title of my review pretty much covers it! Tim and Lori were lovely hosts; extremely helpful, generous with their time / advice and great ambassadors for a local food movement! The breakfasts were delicious and they were kind enough to provide a fresh pastry and coffee when we had to leave early for our ferry. The B&B is in a great location, very close to the rail trail and within walking distance of Harwich (and with a little but more time and energy) Harwich Port.We stayed in the Sunrise Suite and it was well appointed with a fridge, sitting room and private bathroom down the hallway. Finally, Ty (Tim and Lori's dog) is a lovely addition to their home as are Tim's awesome photographs which bedeck the walls. If after reading these reviews you think you can find a more tranquil setting, with a gourment breakfast in an excellent location good luck in your search!! I can guarantee you will not regret choosing Bluefish B&B.

Room Tip: Sunrise suite is a good size with a sitting room and bedroom. Private bathroom is down the hall and...

I stayed here while on a road trip through NE with my mother. The Cape was the last part of our journey, and Bluefish was the perfect end to our trip. I am a big believer in the locavore movement, and I chose this B&B partially because I knew that Tim and Lori made their breakfasts from ingredients from their gardens and other farms on the Cape. The breakfasts were truly a treat, and given that Tim is a chef at a local restaurant, I am not sure you would be able to find anything better.

Tim and Lori were fantastic hosts, giving us plenty of tips about what do to in the area and giving us maps with very clear directions about where to find what we needed. Also, most of the pictures hanging around the house were taken by Tim, so make sure to check them out during your stay.
