Bill couldn't have been more friendly and welcoming! He even made phone calls to locate a pet friendly restaurant in town for me and really seemed like he appreciated that I chose his inn. Super nice guy and yummy breakfast. I'll definitely be back :)

Darn right I appreciated you choosing the Simmons Homestead, and tried to make sure you were happy and will keep coming back, pup and all. You have more fun and I make more money that way :-)) See reasons behind all this

Simmons Homestead Inn was a very welcoming and cozy bed and breakfast. The staff was engaging and friendly and incredibly helpful guiding my wife and i on our first trip to Cape Cod. We're already thinking about when we can return with our family to share the experience with them.

Thanks and I'm so glad you had a good time both here and on the Cape. These folks booked in through a hotel booking thing, and they probably stayed at lots of hotels before. But now that they had a great time at a B&B I hope they never have to go back to a hotel again. That's what we...

If you don't want the conventional cookie-cutter hotel experience, this is a great place to stay. Bill Putnam is well informed about the area, and has plenty of helpful handouts. He also makes a good breakfast. Large yard, fine old car collection, big yard with outdoor seating and hammocks, quiet street, friendly guests, pleasantly crooked old inn, lots of personality...

Thanks, you and Mike were fun guests. Since we joined Booking and Expedia, we are getting a lot of 'hotel' people who ave never been to a B&B before. We make sure they are happy and if we do it right, they will never go to a hotel again :-) Bill

I have never had a more heavenly vacation than the one I had staying with friends on Bill's property. I could have remained on the property all four days and had a nice, relaxing time. Luckily, Bill made provision of bicycles for us to use, free of charge, in order to take the short ride in to Main St. Hyannis...

Wow! It is something that I've noticed. People who say they love the Inn are people I certainly love having here as well. It's the kinda mutual thing I try to get across to make this your home while here on the Cape. Bill

I pulled up to the inn completely in awe of it. Bill, the innkeeper, is this sweet older man, who knew everything there is to know about the inn and the cape. The room my husband and I got was gorgeous. With free bike rentals, a car museum, beach chairs, and wine hour, you CANNOT go wrong!

Thanks, Bill, for another terrific stay at the Cape for us and Jasper and Emma. This was our fourth stay at the Simmons Homestead Inn since 2014 and each one was great for us and our pups.

Two great nights in a historic building on the Cape. Bill is a great inn keeper. Fantastic historic car museum on the premises with a nice selection of Lotus, Jaguar, and MG, displayed in a lovely setting allowing you to get really close to the cars.
