Beach House Inn
Ranked #3 of 3 West Dennis B&B and Inns
Reviewed 10 May 2012

We (a small group of older ladies) stayed here in the fall of 2009, during mid-week, so we happened to have the house to ourselves. It was a wonderful experience, and I can't wait for our return trip this year. This time we've booked the whole house just to make sure we get the same kind of ambiance again. Don't expect lavish and fancy - you can get that elsewhere and empty your pocketbook to have it. This is a quaint and cozy home; the owners have added bathrooms and decks to each bedroom. It's a homey, cozy place that's just perfect for a family group. And right on the water! With a nice stretch of your very own beach to enjoy! It was a perfect vacation in every way!

I stayed at this Bed and Breakfast. The family is so friendly and helpful. The view is spectacular. Fresh coffee, cereal, fresh fruit, waffles, muffins or danish everyday I can't say enough about the great service I received. Thank you Dillon family.

We are a British couple who stayed here in July, it was our first visit to the Cape, and we were not disappointed.
We loved it, the owners are the nicest people you could hope to meet, we felt privileged to have stayed at their wonderful B&B, the rooms were cosy clean and had constant hot water 24 hrs a day.
Bill and Patty were fantastic hosts, Bill serving chilled fresh fruit on the beach at every opportunity, (don't know how he finds the time between being the maid, breakfast chef and handyman ) and even went as far to invite us to their family 4th July celebrations and BBQ, we had a wonderfull night.
The beach is directly outside the veranda where you can sit and eat breakfast, which is a self service affair, which suited our needs perfectly.
There are plenty of great bars and restruants around within a short drive, O`sheas which is a great Irish bar recommended by Patty, was a firm favorite of ours, good food, fab live music, and a great selection of beers.

If you are looking for a pretentious 5 star accomodation on the Cape, then this is not for you however if you want the warmest welcome you are ever likely to get, and that home from home feeling then this is for you.

We just returned from a stay at The Beach House in West Dennis, MA. It can best be described as location, location, location. It is right on the beach with nothing in between except about 30 feet of soft sand beach. Our room #2 had an uninterrupted view of the sea as well as a deck on which to enjoy the view of the ocean, sunrise, and sunset.

The rooms are small but there are also a shared kitchen, living room, gas grills, and a large patio. There are only seven rooms in this inn accessed by a sand road parallel to the sea. Think beach cottage; not luxurious, but very authentic.

We had been here a few times over the last dozen years, and it’s one of the few places where things stay the same – same beautiful beach and warm water, same small neighboring cottages, even the same helpful friendly managers, Bill and Patty.

My fiance and I take an annual trip at the end of summer to Cape Cod and normally stay at a hotel but this year, he chose a Bed and Breakfast which I was skeptical about at first. We travelled during the Hurricane that was passing by and came into severe rain and winds that were incredible. We were late from our drive in (6 hours from our home) and spoke with the owner several times. He was incredible and helped us with directions. We called him as soon as we were close and he helped us with our bags, put us in an immpecable room with our own personal balcony. It was very cozy and upon arrival around 11pm, he offered us a beer to relax from the long and treacherous trip! They had a light breakfast in the mornings in the kitchen area which was free for us to use. The breakfast was very nice with cereal, bagels, danishes, orange juice, english muffins. We woke up to the ocean every morning which was a quiet spot and not many tourists, only those who live around the area.
Location-wise we were very close to everything. Cape Cod is small in general but we were a in a perfect place to head to Yarmouth for mini-golf or to Chatham beach for a day of sunshine and sand or up to P-town for whale watching (which I highly reccommend). All in all, the service was wonderful, the owners let you do your own thing and encouraged you do make yourself at home. Which we did. From day one we felt very comfortable as if we were coming in to see an old friend. We had a wonderful time and The Beach House Inn is a wonderful place for families, couples, or solo trips.

We were so excited to come to Cape Cod and relax in this beautiful location. Unfortunately for us, we regretted our choice of accommodations from the moment we walked in. The place is so run down. The rooms while small (that is fine) are outdated and have no privacy. You can hear absolutely everything in the house. What we experienced is similar to what Olivia mentioned: the family in the basement (I think the owners and their kids) were EVERYWHERE! So much noise and interference. Their son was watching tv in the living room that I thought was for paying guests. So, we got stuck in our tiny little rooms. It was horrible. We wanted to leave early and go home but paid money for our vacation that we couldn't get back. So, we wondered around Cape Cod staying in the house as little as possible. I would never recommend this place to anyone. They need to update it to at least 1985, decide if this is a place for quiet escapes or wild partying by teenagers or a playground for kids. There is no way to get rest here during the day or at night. Horrible!

I believe I am to blame for your unfortunate vacation... I rented the ground floor apartment from the owners for the July 4th festivities. I knew they sometimes rented that space as I have previously rented the ENTIRE house in the winter... apartment included (which is AMAZING when you have a large extended family with children and teens).
We did enjoy ourselves... maybe too much (is that possible on the 4th?) and I apologize for ruining your vacation but the innkeepers are not to blame.
The rates, location, and amenities, and home-feel of the inn make it a perfect destination for couples and families of all ages (present guests excluded).

Sorry again olivia....!!
