“A Gem of a B&B”
Reviewed 13 August 2007

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful stay at the Isaiah Jones Homestead over the week of July 4th. I cannot imagine a more satisfying lodging experience.

The Homestead is located right in the heart of Sandwich, allowing for easy walks or quick drives to all the local landmarks, including a glass works and a gorgeous stretch of beachfront not five minutes away. Our room, the Thomas Dexter Bedroom, was elegantly appointed with a single queen-sized bed that we found very comfortable. Our private bath was also quite large. Guests have full use of the spacious living/gathering rooms, where we enjoyed speaking with two couples visiting from overseas. The Homestead happens to sit immediately upon the path of Sandwich’s Independence Day parade, so we enjoyed the show from the front porch. For anyone who happens to attend the parade, the kids in the on the floats demonstrate a distinct pleasure in spraying bystanders with long-range water squirters - all in good patriotic fun!

The personal touches added by Donnie and Kathryn, our hosts, made all the difference. The breakfast offerings every morning were fresh and imaginative. Crabcakes benedict, salmon and pea crepes, homemade maple scones – all delicious. Being relatively unfamiliar with the Cape, Donnie offered suggestions for evening dining and made reservations for us that corresponded to our plans for the day. So many little elements combined to make our visit memorable: the table settings at breakfast, the fish pond in the backyard, sherry in the evenings. All our needs were attended to with great care.

In all, our experience surpassed our expectations on every level, and we hope to visit again.

We stayed here in June 2006. It was the first time we stayed at a B&B and we had such a nice experience that we stay at B&B's whenever we possibly can! The innkeepers were very knowledgeable and were easy to find when we needed anything but on the other hand they were not intrusive and we felt very comfortable sitting in the common areas. They offer hot tea, instant coffee and small snacks all day as well as they have sherry in the livingroom which was a nice treat before bed and they had wonderful breakfasts every day. The room was nicely decorated. We stayed in The Dr. Jonathan Leonard Room, the front bedroom on the first floor. The only downfall of the room was the bathroom. There was a room with the shower and it was very tiny as well as the shower stall was very tiny, you couldn't wash your hair without hitting your elbows on the walls, I was always afraid of waking the couple in the adjoining room, and there was a room with the sink and toilet which was a little bigger, but still too small. Neither room had enough hooks or shelfs to put your clothes and toiletries on. But, we really enjoyed our stay and would stay again if the opportunity arises. THANKS for your hospitality!!!

We stayed at the Isaiah Jones Homestead for 4 nights in the beginning of September, 2006. We loved everything about this place, the room, the inn keepers, the amazing breakfast each morning, and the location (which can't be beat). Sandwich is such a great place to stay. There are so many things to see and do within walking distance of the Inn, and the inn keepers gave us wonderful recommendations on activities and restaurants. We will definitely visit this inn again.
