This is my favorite place to stay when I am visiting Cape Cod. The family who runs it are lovely and helpful, and the location is perfect for me. Rooms are clean (spotless) and comfortable. I am delighted to hear that they will now be open in the off-season.

We came to the Cape to visit family in July and our stay at the Handkerchief Shoals Inn was perfect. It is a very simple, quiet inn and very neat and clean. The owners are friendly and eager to make sure visitors are satisfied. We liked the option of the continental breakfast where we could get a cup of coffee...

Wouldn't change a thing. Room was clean and quiet. Easy access via parking at your door. Short drive to beaches. Close to all roads and easy driving to all attractions on the Cape. Many restaurants in the area.

My room was clean and quiet. I was there during the off season, so the prices were good for my four day stay. My room could have used some hangers but I forgot to mention that at checkout. The hosts were very friendly and willing to help with anything requested. I will use the Handerchief Shoals Inn again whenever I...
