The Blushing Oyster Bed & Breakfast
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Susan the hostess/owner is charming and interesting, having taught at Williams College. The house is perfectly suited. My wife and I stayed in the first floor king suite which boasted a large bedroom with fireplace, a separate sitting area with a love seat and TV set up and a large bath with Jacuzzi tub. The breakfasts were very tasty and creative.

Thank you so much for reviewing your stay with me at The Blushing Oyster. It was so pleasant to speak with you both and carry on about Maine. I would love to have you come again for a visit and will answer to Susan if you prefer. Be well.

My wife and I had a great couple of days last summer on the Cape and our stay at the Blushing Oyster couldn't have been more comfortable and relaxing. Thank you Holly, our host, for a beautiful inn and delicious breakfasts. Would definitely choose to stay here again when we next visit Cape Cod.

Marvellous bed and breakfast in Cape Cod. Nice old building which had been fitted out very well with good size rooms and god facilities. Rooms are bright and sunny with lovely details.

Location is on a main road as mentioned in other reviews but we didn't notice.

The innkeeper was really helpful in suggesting places to go out and generally looking after us.

The breakfast is vegetarian only - not a massive problem but suggest this should be made clear on the website as it may well cause a problem for some people.

Great place and would recommend it

The house, the food, and the Innkeeper (Holly) were all fantastic. Antique touches such as original wide-board pine floors are complemented by modern conveniences such as WiFi, plentiful hot water, and great climate control. Breakfast was a treat both mornings, tasty and healthy. If you're a die hard carnivore, be warned that breakfast is vegetarian so you'll have to forgo your bacon. Holly did a fantastic job of accommodating our late arrival, providing us with information and suggestions about local activities, and generally making us feel welcome.

My girlfriend and I are already hoping to visit again in the future.

Miscellaneous
- No shortage of off-street parking
- Restaurants in walking distance
- There are TVs in the rooms

This home is comfortable, clean, and a perfedt location for exploring the cape. The breakfast and hostess were excellent. Our room was bright and large but our bathroom was smaller than expected. Holly, the owner, made us feel at home and we enjoyed getting to know her and all that was happening in the community. She is a delight and makes this home shine.










made to feel at home

Room Tip: Cotuit room has a small bathroom but it is very comfortable

What a delightful experience! For us, this was the quintessential B and B-- nicely decorated, beautiful antique pieces, beautiful wide-planked, original floors in our room, serene and restful color schemes, excellent coffee, delicious breakfasts with decorative accents, and a warm and helpful hostess, Holly. This is a B and B we would love to go back to.

Room Tip: Our room had a small bathroom and fronted Route 6A, which is trafficky; OK for us, but you may want...

I'm so pleased that you had such a "full" stay on Cape Cod.
You both really outdid yourselves with all you were able to fit into a few days.
I was happy to be able to give you a new coffee to enjoy as well.
Hope the elbow has healed and that life is flexible/pain free again.
Have a great winter and spring and will look for you again in the future.
Be well,
Holly
