Sprawled across the picturesque, sunny shoreside on one of Cape Cod’s most pristine stretches of land, A Little Inn on Pleasant Bay is the beachfront bed and breakfast you always dreamed of, but never thought existed. The property is just as quaint, cozy and fairy tale-esque as its name.
The property is owned by two pleasant and courteous English sisters, Pamela and Sandra, who came to Cape Cod to make their vision of the perfect inn a reality. The inn is a great mix of rustic beauty, home-style warmth and good old-fashioned customer service, all wrapped into an excellently landscaped, tastefully decorated package.
The stunningly well kept gardens, overlooking the picture-perfect Pleasant Bay, excellently complement the inn’s nine rooms, each with its own custom design and colorful decor. Enjoy a beautiful, tranquil afternoon outside with the family, lounging in one of the inn’s strategically placed adirondack chairs. But don’t be surprised if you see your room’s name on one of the passing boats. How else do you think people come up with room names like “Whistler,” “Daysailer” and “Baybird”?
Rooms are air conditioned and come with a private bathroom, which includes towel service, toiletries and hair dryers. Rooms also come with daily maid service and complimentary Wi-Fi access. While there are no TV’s in any of the rooms, there is an excellent selection of magazines and books to enjoy.
Close proximity to the beaches of Skaket, Monomoy, Chatham and Nauset, as well as the property’s own small, private beach, makes this property ideal for families looking to go on a tour of Cape Cod’s beaches. The inn is also located near all the shops, restaurants, boutiques and entertainment of Chatham and Orleans.
While a gourmet European buffet breakfast is offered to every guest, the concierge will gladly point you in the right direction if your family is looking to sample a little more of Cape Cod’s world-famous cuisine. They’ll also help organize sightseeing trips, boat tours and make suggestions for other ways to enjoy all the family-friendly fun Cape Cod has to offer.

The website doesn't do this piece of paradise justice. The hostess, who treats you more like family than a paying guest, went out of her way to make our stay so special. And the premises glows of her warmth from the bubbling fountain to the welcoming fire in the communal sitting room. And of course the location overlooking the bay that can be seen from all the main rooms gives the property a wonderful serenity. I noticed many guests are return visitors and I now see why.
A little gem overlooking beautiful Pleasant Bay. We absolutely loved our time staying here - Pamela and Sandra were wonderful hosts and that view! Mesmerising! Our room was gorgeous as was the breakfast, which we enjoyed al fresco in the tranquil garden, bathed in sunshine. A special thank you to Pamela and Sandra for their encyclopedic knowledge of the Cape, your tips and help made our time with you even more special. We will be back!
