Crook Jaw Inn
Reviewed 21 October 2011

I have just come back from my fifth stay at the Crook Jaw, easily the best b and b in which I have stayed. Brian Howley is a perfect innkeeper - helpful without being intrusive. I have settled back reluctantly into my coffee and toast breakfast at home, missing the splendid meals Brian cooks for his guests - an epic catalogue of juices, super coffee and everything from waffles to the oatmeal based special dish for which I now have the recipe.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautifullly decorated, beds comfortable, chairs for reading.

We rented the whole Crrok Jaw Inn for our wedding weekend to put up our wedding party/family. To say we loved it would be a major understatement. Brian made us feel so at home, we all felt like we could just move right in!
Fresh hot coffee was always on first thing in the morning. Breakfast was like eating out at a 5 star restaurant. The rooms were spotless, beds comfy and each room has its own personality that just couldn't be beat. The whole inn had so much charm and character I feel like in 3 nights, I still didn't get to take it all in! My husband and I will definately come back here.

Room Tip: We had the Yarmouth room which was amazing but they were all absolutely beautiful!

This was our first visit to Cape Cod and we spent 3 nights at Crook Jaw Inn with close friends. Our room (Sea Breeze) was extremely comfortable, bathroom small but very good shower. Brian is the perfect host. My partner is a fussy eater and Brian couldn't have been more helpful in providing him the breakfast he wanted. We were too full to eat the daily home baked muffins, but Brian packaged them up and we ate them during the days exploring Cape Cod. Brian was full of great advice about restaurants and places to visit and as the previous reviewer has already said a born B & B owner. Crook Jaw is a lovely home, where we felt extremely comfortable coming back from a long day, watching one of many DVDs in the spacious lounge area or sitting in the garden reading our books. Perfectly located in Yarmouth for visiting all areas nearby. If we ever get back to the Cape would have no hesitation in staying with Brian at Crook Jaw Inn again. Thank you Brian for making our first visit to Cape Cod so enjoyable.

I spend a few days down the Cape each summer with a dear out of town friend and am always looking for that ideal B&B after the one we used to stayed at in Yarmouthport closed over 4 years ago. We finally found it. We had stayed at the Crook Jaw over 10 years ago .... several owners prior to Brian taking over. He has done such a wonderful job with this inn. After visiting B&Bs on Cape Cod for over 20 years, some people are meant to own a B&B and some aren't. Brian is definately a true B&B owner. His decorating touches as well as delicious breakfasts are reason to return year after year. The extra touches----fridge full of water & sodas, wine glasses, beach chairs and towels, fresh baked cookies in the afternoon, etc. are reason to return year after year. Look forward to seeing you again in 2012, Brian. Thanks for an enjoyable weekend.

Brian is a gracious host who provides great advice for sightseeing and dining. He also provides a superb breakfast each morning that includes fresh ingredients. We stayed in the Falmouth Room and found it to be just perfect for a romantic getaway. This room has a four poster bed, a large bathroom with jacuzzi and matching bathrobes. The inn has a very cozy living room where my husband and I enjoyed resting and enjoying a hot cup of coffee each morning before we began sightseeing. The Crook Jaw is located in a quaint little town that has sidewalks so we also enjoyed leisurely strolls during our down time. We look forward to staying at the Crook Jaw Inn again next year!

We stayed here for 3 nights as a little getaway from the daily grind. Upon arrival, we were greeted warmly and offered lots of great tips for our stay (where to eat, beach, etc.). Daily breakfasts were enormous and absolutely delicious. There is a large common area, as well as a tv room/library, and we relaxed in the common space on the first night over a bottle of wine. The place is adorable and has all of the charm you could hope for in a New England B&B.

We had the room with the jacuzzi-wouldn't recommend the extra expense, as the tub is tiny and for one person only. The bed in that particular room also has very creaky posts and is right next to the common area...you see where I am going.

The Crook Jaw is right across from a great restaurant called the Old Yarmouth Inn. Delicious seafood, and you can get a little toasted and walk back to the Inn.

We would for sure stay again.

Just got back from our 5 night stay at this B&B run by Brian. The moment we checked in Brian was a most hospitable host, recommending sites to see and places to eat. Never having been to the Cape we found his suggestions to be most helpful. I was glad I decided to choose the location of Yarmouth Port as our home base for the 5 day tour. The Main St. location is also known as the Old King's Highway and the homes have all been preserved and no lit signs are permitted so the area is very residential and relatively quiet. It is centrally located to visit the other towns on the cape. Brian will give you beach chairs and towels to take along to the myriad of beaches in the area.
Brian prepares mouth=watering breakfasts each morning and serves them in the small dining area right off his kitchen. This is a small inn with only 5 rooms. We stayed in the Captain Crocker room, the only room with a king bed. My suggestion - if you must have a king bed then by all means this room will be fine. The drawback,however, is the very small bathroom. It is literally the size of a small closet; just room enough for a sink and toilet opposite and a very small shower. Being up in a dormer-type room the in-room air conditioner and fan really had to work to keep the room cool. If you don't mind a queen bed, try to get the Yarmouth room on the main floor - big bathroom and very nicely appointed. The other rooms upstairs are also very nicely decorated and all had bigger bathrooms than ours.
The location, cleanliness, hospitality, and the value all made this location an excellent choice. I would definitely stay here again.
