“A welcoming retreat at the best part of the Cape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2009

After a week in the General's Green Room, it was hard to leave our new 'home' on Cape Cod: a charming clapboard cottage down a track in the middle of the woods, just outside laid-back Wellfleet. Sandy and Sven are incredibly welcoming, interesting, helpful hosts, and the sympathetic, yet spotlessly fresh decor in the rooms fits the place perfectly. Their green credentials are second to none, and Wellfleet itself is a great base for a trip to the Cape, too.

Chez Sven is a great little B&B. It feels like you're very far away from things, with it being on a dirt road, yet it's just off of Rte. 6. The accommodations are very comfortable and clean. Breakfasts are delicious and very healthy -- fresh fruit salad, home-made grainola, yogurt, home baked pastries; if weather permits, you can eat al fresco. Sandy and Sven are very friendly, and we immediately felt at home. We will definitely go back there on our next visit to Cape Cod.

We arrived for a long weekend and were in for such a treat. The weather was great, Cape Cod was deserted and the B&B was divine. We stayed in the Seagull cottage. The fridge was stocked with all sorts of goodies and the cottage itself is so cute and cosy. We ate breakfast on the porch and listend to the birds and watched the chipmunks in between reading and dozing. The cottage is very secluded and Wellfleet is a very cute town. We ate at the wicked oyster for dinner. It is just a few minutes walk from the cottage and the food was great. Don't miss out on a visit to nearby Duck Harbor.

Chez Sven is run by a lovely woman who makes one of the best breakfasts in the world. The place is very pretty and light. We have stayed in the Liberty Coin Suite, ideal for a family with one child.
Sandy is very knowlegable about anything that might possibly interest you about Cape Cod and Wellfleet. The garden is very beautiful and fragrant. The whole setting is so peaceful, you would not want to leave. Breakfast is excellent, it includes freshest fruit, homemade granola and yoghurt and some pastry or cake. Our favorite was the one with poppy seeds, cranberries and almonds. This is the place where you defenitely would want to return.

Great stay. You stay in this great cottage, off the beaten path in a very peaceful setting, still easy to get to everything. Fridge stocked with goodies for a great breakfast, everything is thought of here! It's definitely a romantic little spot, but you feel at home too. Loved it!

We stayed at Chez Sven three nights, and really enjoyed this cozy and intimate B&B. Alexandra and Sven are great persons, who seemed to love to take care of their guests. They gave us lots of good suggestions what to do, which was especially good since the weather was bad during our visit. They knew the area very well, and could give nice insider tips.
The breakfasts were homemade and ecological, and really tasty. A great start of the day. We stayed in the Liberty Coin Suite with our two small children, which worked out fine, although there are steep stairs up there. The standard of the room was good, although it was more cozy than luxerious. We liked it a lot, and appreciated having two rooms, so that we could put the children to sleep in one of the rooms.
We would like to recommend this B&B to anyone that appreciates a cozy and small place to stay in a very nice part of Cape Cod for a good price.
