Bill, "the Innkeeper of sorts" has the 411 on all things local - we were well directed. He was welcoming and engaging. Simmons is quiet, clean and a great home base in the heart of the Cape. Love this area in the off-season. Don't miss Toad Hall if you are any kind of car buff.

Room tip: Tell Bill what you want!

Hi Dora, Glad we were of help in getting you around. Even if you had been here before, things change and we want you to go to the nice places and just enjoy. That's why we do Wine Hour at night. In addition to being a kinda social with other guests, we show you actual menus of the places we recommend for dinner. There over 80 places to eat from McDonalds to the biggest and best. We recommend less than a dozen, and guests have never complained and really enjoy our picks.

We want you to feel completely at home here and enjoy every single minute on that you are here. See ya again,

Bill

E had an absolutely wonderfully relaxing weekend. Webstay d in the Rabbit Room, so-called because of the themed decorations. Our Innkeeper, Mr. Bill Putman was a wonderful and knowledgeable host, with everything from which restaurants to go to, places to see, and directions to all, The inn itsl f was charming, as my husband and I both live off New England inns. “Wine Hour” each evening provided a nice time to relax and chat wit other guests before going out for dinner. All in al, a fantastic fall weekend.

That's great, thanks. I simply try and make this a non formal place and really your home away from home here on the Cape. That's why it's nice to meet and chat with new friends over a glass or two of wine and to enjoy all of the Cape so much you'll keep coming back home here. Glad you enjoyed,

Bill

Simmons is a quirky and eclectic inn located in a quiet neighborhood about 2 miles from the busy village of Hyannis. The innkeeper, Bill, is a true Renaissance man who manages the inn, cooks breakfast, concierge to all and a collector of cars, single malt liquor and books. This bed and breakfast may not be the correct choice for all but if you like the unusual and no frills this is the spot for you.

Room tip: Dog owners choose Room 2

First let me say the Inn is very unique and eclectic in decor. We were in room #10 that almost had a cabin feel rather than just a room. The place is very clean and pet friendly.

Bill the Innkeeper is very welcoming and goes out of his way to make you feel that this is "your home away from home".

The Inn is centrally located on the Cape (so very convenient) and we stayed there for 5 nights, We traveled the entire Cape Cod area, Newport RI, and Nantucket.

New England is beautiful and Bill is a wealth of knowledge on the entire New England area ---Telling us what to see, suggesting where we should go each day with maps and informative handouts.

Bill THANK YOU for making our stay enjoyable

Room tip: Talk to Bill--He will make suggestions for your needs

Damp room with ooh la la cat smell from 20 or so cats.....bed sunk to the floor, springs were so bad....ran out of hot water in the very DARK bathroom (lights were terribly inadequate at best). Mosquitoes because we couldn't shut the doors to the outside. Everything in the house is dusty, if you have allergies, stay away!

The place is kind of creepy. The owner is kind of creepy. He follows you around talking. The food is meh, rubbery sausages, go out.

There are a lot better buys for your money. Even ones that allow pets. And don't let your dog cry or bark or he'll come talk to you some more.

Room tip: Go somewhere else
