Our private beach, adjacent to the Bank Street Beach, has been designated a "pristine" beach by the Barnstable County Health and Environment Water Testing Laboratory because of the superior quality of the waters offshore.

    Meet the Innkeepers

    Joe and Deb Curran, the new owners of "Inn on the Beach Cape Cod" have traveled extensively and took away some of the best attributes of each place they stayed hoping to someday open their own Inn. When the opportunity arose for them to purchase an inn, no less an ocean front inn with a private beach, they jumped at the chance and with the support of their family and friends confirming their decision, they moved forward. They have made many upgrades to the Inn for the upcoming 2012 season with more exciting plans for the future.
