Five couples stayed at this lovely property Sept 24-28, 2013 to celebrate my Dad's 85th Birthday. Every single person on the staff - from Sandi and Chris to the cleaning and kitchen staff - went above and beyond time after time to make our stay comfortable and totally stress-free! The view and location are perfect and even the weather was too;)! I would highly recommend this property, and hope to return again!

After intensive research, Anchor In was chosen for our late Sept. birthday celebration for the patriarch of the family,his wife and four 50ish children and their spouses. It was perfect for all. Location the best for water views and proximity to ferries, a reasonable walk to many restaurants and shops. The Inn, itself, is wonderfully maintained; rooms are most attractive; beds are very comfortable and the continental breakfast excellent. Service was welcoming and attentive. We enjoyed The Osterville, our second floor spacious room ( the hospitality room for our group) with its wrap around balcony and water views. A great choice for all! Kudos to the owners and staff.....

It's okay if you don't mind being exhorted to help the environment by reusing your towels while being forced to rape it by the use of plastic 'glasses'. Our room was super quiet, but had a terrible layout, with a non-swivelling TV at one end and a sitting area at the other. Watching TV from the sitting area was impossible because of the roughly 10° viewing angle. Staff came to make changes, but could only remedy the situation by putting the easy chair between the two beds. Made a mess of the room, but what the heck.

Again a matter of the room advertised on the website looking a lot better than what one is stuck with on arrival.

The (included) continental breakfast was so-so, mainly because of the pleasing setting. Other than that, it was a little hectic and disjointed, with lousy coffee.

Dear Sir; Cape Cod’s sole source aquifer, the groundwater beneath the surface, is the only source of drinking water in this region. We do our best at conservation efforts. As part of our effort, we use a card that simply says in essence; any towels you would like replaced leave on the floor. For sound sanitary reasons, we use individually wrapped plastic glasses in our guest rooms. We would have been glad to provide you with glass glasses upon request.

The sitting area was meant to be an area to look out over the water. It was never intended to be an area to sit and watch TV.

We use Green Mountain Coffee exclusively. We brew a breakfast blend in the mornings. After breakfast, for the rest of the day and evening we have different flavor options available that can be brewed by the cup.

We wish we could have honored your request to stay an additional night but we were sold out. Perhaps that third night would have put you in better spirits.

Sincerely
Lisa and Skip Simpson

We thoroughly enjoyed our time here. Great room and services. A must stay when in Hyannis, close to everything. Enjoyed the fire pit a great place to meet other people. The view from our room was excellent.

Not expecting much by way of a one night stay from Nantucket to Boston, but how pleasant our one night was! Breath taking harbor view, huge and spotless room. Breakfast area was a delight...wish we had more time to stay!

Spent a few days in Cape Cod to celebrate my 50th birthday. We we arrived and there was a bottle of wine and card in our room. The staff is awesome! Very helpful with information. The rooms were very nice and breakfast great. Enjoyed sitting around the firepit after dinner. Chris and Janet were great. We will go there again if we ever go back to the cape!!

Arrived a little early at the Anchor In but our room was ready and Chris was a very good host. He showed us around and gave us suggestions of where to eat. The room was clean and had a nice view of the marina and our deck was wonderful to sit on in the afternoon sun. Our room was on the East side on the 2nd floor. Disadvantage.... no elevators only stairs...no problem except when carrying luggage. The continental breakfast was satisfactory for us. We are not big breakfast eaters. Coffee and tea was available all day in the library...a very nice room. The pool looked clean and inviting and was heated but we did not use it. The evening fire pit was a nice touch. The flowers surrounding the pool area were beautiful. Enjoyed staying at the Anchor In and would stay there again if in Hyannis again.

Room Tip: 2nd floor rooms have a better view of the marina and the east side is nice
