A Traditional New England Retreat...

Make your New England vacation one to remember at this historical Cape Cod bed and breakfast. From its gray-shingled exterior to the cottage-like décor found inside, the Ship's Knees Inn is the epitome of New England charm. This 180-yr.-old sea captain's home has been lovingly restored to include 16 individually-decorated inn rooms, plus an apartment for a more private retreat. Wake to scrumptious scones each morning before exploring the Cape Cod seashore; the inn is a short walk from the sandy dunes of Nauset Beach. Nearby, you'll find saltwater fishing, kayaking, golfing and more!
