The Simmons Homestead is the only Bed & Breakfast Inn in Hyannis Port and truly reflects the spirit of old Cape Cod. The entire house has been designed to provide a warm, friendly, relaxing, and romantic atmosphere where you will meet new friends, feel at home and relax. A pleasant haven to retire to after a day of exploring, it is situated where you can wander the Cape, enjoy the beach, or take a day trip to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard. At the end of the day, you will return to the Inn, sit on the porch with wine, and relax. Then go to some of the best restaurants on all of Cape Cod, which are less than a mile away. The Inn also is the home of Toad Hall Car Collection, the largest and most impressive automobile collection on the Cape!
The Inn was the homestead of the Simmons family, built in the 1800 - 1820 range by Lemuel Simmons, a somewhat famous old sea captain. It was a private Hyannis Port estate until 1988, when it was renovated and made into a great Bed and Breakfast Inn. What was the original barn, now houses 4 more guest rooms, a common room and a billiard parlor. The house is historically significant, but the interior and furnishings have added a sense of fun and relaxation.
All the rooms are unique and beautifully furnished with its own personality and theme. In fact, most guests always call or e-mail to reserve the cat, zebra, elephant or other room by name. The animal themes grew from the experiences and creativity of guests over the years. Years of satisfied guests have done their part to add to the fantastic themes and decor.
There are 14 guest rooms in total including a two bedroom suite set up just for families, and the Cat Room which is a two room suite with a sitting area and a separate king size bedroom. The rooms have either king or queen size beds and one has two twins. They all have their own private bathrooms, with irons, hair dryers and anything else you may need.
In the mornings, a full, home cooked breakfast is served where you'll find everything fresh and filling. Breakfasts are based on the "All you can eat, but absolutely no choice" school of cooking. They are basic - one day eggs, fruit, fried ham, fresh baked breads, while another day will have blueberry pancakes, sausages, and melons. During the summer, they do an elaborate continental breakfast on Sundays, as no one seems to get up and get their act together on Sundays.
