    lThe Country Cape Bed and Breakfast front

    The Country Cape B&B is a traditional New England Cape Bed and Breakfast home located in Whately, MA. Offering three comfortable guest rooms for travelers near and far, we are situated in the hills of this charming village next to a historic red barn and beautiful West Brook.

    You can enjoy the back fields from the deck or brick patio where you may catch a glimpse of wild turkeys and deer that sometimes meander down from the surrounding hills.

    During the spring and summer season, enjoy country living on the patio, by the pool or in the bistro-garden for 2. In fall and winter, enjoy a cup of tea by the crackling fire in the cozy den.
