Captain Farris House
A restored 1845 Greek Revival property ideal for romantic getaways.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this property exudes the provincial charm of Cape Cod. You will feel right at home as you relax on the Adirondack chairs that grace the large veranda. Besides the nearby beach, visitors can enjoy ferries to Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard and the Cape Cod Rail Trail for walking, jogging or biking. Children are not allowed, making this place ideal for romantic getaways. Guest rooms are individually decorated, and some feature private access to the wrap-around veranda, while others include Jacuzzis and iron canopy beds draped with damask duvet covers. Suites boast private sundecks, antique beds, fireplaces and brick patios. Whatever you do, don’t head out for a day of sightseeing without indulging in the gourmet three-course breakfast that is included in your stay. The meal is served in a glass-encased courtyard that makes it feel as if you are eating in a greenhouse. A Waterford chandelier glistens above the dining room, and complimentary cocktails are served in the parlor in the evening.
