Bill, the owner, will greet you and give you lots of great advice on making the most of your visit to the Cape Cod area, including personalized writeups. He has a large lawn and areas that are perfect for your pets who are staying with you. The hammocks out under the trees are a nice touch. For European Auto and racing buffs, there is a car museum on the property site, which you can visit at no charge.

Simmons Inn was the perfect place to enjoy the Cape and visit Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. My girlfriend and I spend 4 nights at the Inn and were immediately impressed by Bill Putnam's energy, enthusiasm and kindness. In fact from the moment we booked a room Bill provided helpful travel tips and also agreed to meet us at Hyannis Transportation Centre, which was very helpful of him (particularly as the timing of our trip changed at the last minute). The Inn itself is charming with good sized, clean rooms. Bill cooks a mean breakfast every morning so it is worth getting up for those. The Inn is probably a 10-15 minute walk to the centre of town (even less if you have a car). It is very close to the beach and to Hyannis Port and the Kennedy compound. Bill provides extremely

We made a last minute trip to Cape Cod for our friends' anniversary celebration. Since we have 2 dogs we needed lodging that allowed pets. We've stayed at the Simmons Homestead Inn so we called. Bill was gracious and welcomed us at the last minute. Once again we had a fine visit. We stayed in the Cat Room which is a 2 room suite. The extra room was welcome since the pups weigh 65 and 75 pounds.Emma and Jasper, our "pups" were welcomed and treated like one of the family. Bill has all sorts of information to let you know where dogs are welcome and when. His restaurant suggestions are also wonderful. Without a doubt, the 4 of us will return when we make our next visit to the Cape.

Love to have you and the 'family' back as much as you can. I need to get my dog fix :-) But also to folks who are thinking of coming to the Cape with a dog or 2 or even more, The Simmons Homestead is a great place to bring your 'family.' Near beaches you can take a dog anytime and other places for all of you to eat outside and check out the Cape and just relax. This is your home away from home on Cape Cod! Bill

We stayed at the Inn while competing in a dog show in the area. Bill (the owner) is very friendly and offers great advice on what to do and where to eat. The location of the Inn is very convenient to whatever you’d like to do on the cape. The rooms are very traditional but comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed the evening wine hours on the back porch and the gorgeous back lawn. The Inn is dog friendly, our dogs loved it- but there are rules on where your dog can go and what they can do. All in all- we enjoyed our stay at the Inn and will be back next year!

Hi Jen, Yep we've tried to make the Inn and Cape Cod fun. Nuthin fancy just your home away from home. See you and the pup next year or sooner if you can. Don't forget Winter is a great time to come. Milder than the main land and the beaches and trails are waiting for just you. And have dinner delivered and eat with the dog in the common room by the fireplace. And rooms 3 & 4 have wood burning fireplaces in their own rooms too. Only $20 a night more to cover cost of the wood. So keep coming back as we give discounts to returning folks. Bill

Innkeeper Bill Putnam makes you feel at home and makes sure that you have a good time. Recommends places to eat and play as well as explore. His nightly wine hour to get to know the guests and ideas for dinner was an absolute highlight. It is a no frills Inn but worth every night. My Greyhounds loved it.
