Located in the historic district of Eastham, Massachusetts, our lovely B&B has the flexibility to offer something for everyone. This spacious B&B is full of light and has the seaside flavor of Cape Cod. We are 1.5 miles from the shore and just steps from the Cape Cod Rail Bike Trail which carries you to either the spectacular beaches of the Cape Cod National Seashore or the tranquil beaches of Cape Cod Bay. We have a comfortable living room with a gas fireplace, TV, and a high speed wireless Internet service or relax on our large deck with cozy Mexican fireplace.
Travelers are always looking for memorable and relaxing experiences. Let’s discover more through the words of our innkeepers. Many thanks to Bob and Nancy Peck for sharing their own secrets with BBOnline.com! Why do most travelers stay at your inn?
The first time they come, it’s because of our location on outer Cape Cod. We are a 2 mile bike ride to one of the top ten beaches in this country, Coast Guard Beach along the Cape Cod National Seashore. We are also 1.5 miles away from the bay beaches as well and a short walk to the pond. They return because it is comfortable, casual and very clean. I am constantly told how beautiful my home is. They love how beautifully decorated it is. They love the “seaside” flare it has. But most of all they mention how much they enjoyed us as hosts, especially our sweet golden retriever Chesney. He, by far, gets most of the praise!
What are you best known for? What makes your inn unique? What do you love most about your inn?

Outer Cape Cod has a lot to offer any vacationer. Whale watching, bike riding, and kayaking seem to be the favorite activities among our guests. Coast Guard Beach, which has been listed by the travel channel as one of America's top ten beaches is less than 2 miles away and is part of the National Seashore. The national park has a multitude of activities available from nature walks to tours of a whaling captains home from the 1800's. The Audubon society offers bird watching and various lecture series.
Our continental breakfast is usually served between 7 and 10 AM, but can be altered to accommodate all lifestyles. We serve coffee, tea, juice, cereal, muffins, yogurt and fresh fruit. This includes our home grown raspberries when they are in season!
About Your Hosts and Property
The property started out as a small cottage and has been in the family for three generations. It is currently the residence of Bob and Nancy Peck. Like most Cape Cod homes, it has been remodeled and changed over the years. The most recent renovation occurred in 2001 when an addition was constructed.
Your hosts, Bob and Nancy are local school teachers. Like most Cape Codders, we have several side jobs as well. Bob is a musician. On most weekends you can catch him playing his original music at a local bar. Bob also runs his own Scuba business and has been sharing his skills and love of the ocean to thousands of people for over 30 years.
Nancy is a whale biologist and naturalist and has been educating the public and studying whales for the Dolphin Fleet Whale Watch for 15 years. Before that, she was a marine mammal trainer working at Sea World, New England Aquarium and Mystic Marinelife Aquarium. Our love for the ocean is what brought us together.
