This property is impeccable and has large guest rooms which are tastefully appointed as is the rest of the property. The innkeepers, Cheryl and Luke, immediately made us feel at home and spared no attention to detail, Cheryl’s fabulous breakfasts proved her to be a true master in the kitchen. This was our first B&B experience and surpassed our expectations, we highly recommend Captain Farris and their award winning staff. Thank you guys for a memorable week, we’ll see you soon.

This Inn is simply beautiful. The house is gorgeous, the food is soooo good. I can't remember the last time I was so excited to eat anything. We at jam-filled muffins, blueberry pancakes, fruit, fresh baked cookies. The rooms are clean and gorgeous and wonderfully decorated. The Inn Keepers are so friendly and warm, as well as the Manager of Housekeeping. Everyone was so very kind and thoughtful, bringing us 2 extra jam-filled muffins b/c the Manager couldn't help but notice the huge smile on my face while eating my first one for breakfast.

My boyfriend and I loved, loved this Inn and plan on returning very soon. You have even inspired me to take cooking classes and subscribe to Home magazines for decorating tips in the hopes that I may one day be able to cook such delicious meals and decorate my home as beautifully and stylish as your Inn. Wishing you much continued success and good health.

My husband and I had a great stay at The Captain Farris House Inn. We have never stayed at a bed and breakfast before and we loved it. We stayed in the Irma Farris Suite and the room was very spacious, clean, and private. We looked forward to our tasty breakfast every morning and to the freshly baked cookies and port wine in the afternoon. We loved how quiet and peaceful everything was and the inn keepers were so kind and friendly. We will most definitely be returning to the Captain Farris House Inn.

The attention to detail at The Captain Farris house is incredible! From the minute you walk through the door you feel right at home. The breakfast is outstanding and very filling--especially their Peach Cinnamon French Toast! My new favorite! The house is beautifully decorated and the decor stays to true to an older time period but the house also has modern conveniences. Our room-Bray's Retreat, was beautiful, spotless, and had a really comfortable bed. I liked how the innkeepers took the time to tell you about the best restaurants and things to do in the area--they were extremely helpful and kind! There is also a great collection of movies to watch as well as snacks that you can have throughout the day. The grounds of the bed and breakfast are relaxing and very well kept. The location in South Yarmouth is convenient and it doesn't take long to get to other parts of the Cape. There are many restaurants within five minutes of the Captain Farris House. Definitely give this gorgeous house a try next time you're planning a trip to the Cape...we can't wait to return!!!!

Never been to a B&B before but I would definitely return to the Captain Farris House. Everything was wonderful, the room, the wine and strawberries, the Jacuzzi, the breakfast, and especially our host Nancy. Do yourself and your significant other a favor and go to this marvelous get away.
