Get away from the hustle and bustle of your every day life. Come and relax at Cape Cod’s most romantic and secluded country Inn – quietly tucked away on a country road, but centrally located to all the attractions that make Cape Cod so special. Walk the ‘Outer Cape’ beaches, listening to the soothing sound of the waves, lapping on Cape Cod Bay or crashing at the National Seashore. Partake in some of the finest dining that the Cape has to offer, beginning here each day with a gourmet breakfast served to you at your own private table.
The Inn was built in 1830 for Henry Harding, a renowned whaling captain. In the early nineteen hundreds it became a gentleman’s farm, known as Whalewalk Farm, then owned by the Kent family of PR Lorillard tobacco fame. With a cow and horse still living in what is now the Salt Box Cottage, the farm was purchased in 1953 and turned into an inn. Since that time it has been authentically restored and creatively redecorated. The common rooms are filled with the Innkeeper’s extensive Waterford Crystal collection, 19th century country antiques from England and France, fresh flowers, and oriental rugs for a warm welcome to start your stay.
Awaken to the aroma of fresh brewed coffee, sizzling bacon, one of our many delightful pastry items, and a different entrée every day. Dietary needs are no problem, if we know in advance. View the gardens on our bricked patio, while enjoying your first meal of the day. On those cooler days, breakfast can be enjoyed on our Sun porch or the dining room.
After a day of exploring, bicycling, swimming, and shopping, end your afternoon with a visit to the new Spa and remove any tensions that you brought to the Cape with a massage or workout. Book your date and time when you make your room reservations. Or, take time out to enjoy nature from the view in the gazebo. Join the innkeepers for an hors d’oeuvre hour, and decide which restaurant best suits your mood for the day.
