Table Of Contents
Welcome to beautiful Cape Cod and Alyce's Dunscroft By-The-Sea, where a delightful experience awaits you, and we and our staff wait to greet you!
Escape... just steps away to our spectacular, private mile-long beach, and lull away the hours on our fine, white sands... Dunscroft remains for a half-century one of Cape Cod's finest Bed and Breakfast Inns with its casual, relaxed elegance by the sea.
Highly rated and approved by Karen Brown's Guides, Zagat, Frommer's, Fodor's, AAA, Star Service and Mobil Travel Guide, Dunscroft celebrates 60 years serving guests fine fare and warm hospitality!
Built in 1920 as a 14-room private summer house in quaint Harwich Port, its perfect Mid-Cape location -- 30 miles to each end of the Island -- is an in-village walk to fine restaurants, shops and galleries.
Guest accommodations, individually appointed with king or queen canopy, four-poster or sleigh beds, air conditioning or fresh ocean breezes, Jacuzzis, fireplaces, private entrances, and all in-room private baths, await your indulgence. Tastefully decorated with fine linens, multiple pillows, cozy puffs, terry robes, and thoughtful amenities, Dunscroft's bed-chambers are created for those wanting a quiet, romantic or restful interlude.
The Triple-French-Doored Gathering Room with baby grand piano, television, library and fireplace, finds you by a cozy fire in winter or ocean breezes in summer, and opens onto a wonderful, dreamy summer porch -- perfect balm for a quiet, blissful afternoon retreat.
Expanded Continental Breakfast greets your awakening--Hmmm!
Harwich Port is a charming Cape Cod seaside village with three beautiful harbors ~ you can enjoy several miles of beach strolling taking you from one to the other; it is here that you can brave the breakwaters, rest upon our sun-drenched boulders by day and gaze upon our star-studded skies by night. Stroll lazily for lunch or dinner to 6 restaurants close by, to our unique shops, art and antique galleries, golf and tennis courts.
