The Inn is lucky to be surrounded with dog-friendly conservation trails and a beautiful rocky beach within walking distance. Treat Fido to an adventure after breakfast, after all, he had to sit their drooling while you ate! Later in the day, you can follow one of our free self-guided driving tours to find the Cape’s best dog-friendly restaurants, trails, parks, beaches, and ponds!

Doggie Dining & Pet Pampering

Dining with your pooch means finding a restaurant that has outdoor dining (weather permitting) and is pet-friendly. We have a couple of fun eateries within a 2 minutes drive! A few more minutes from the Inn is Main St, Hyannis, with plenty of pet-friendly outdoor dining, including the Cape’s BEST lobster roll on a pet friendly beach!

Pet Friendly Beaches

There aren’t a ton of ’em, but there are several pet-friendly beaches around for when Fido craves a mouth full of salty surf. Again, we’ll help you orchestrate your days with our free pet-friendly self-guided driving tours! If you’re afraid you won’t be able to get around the way you’d like with your pet, don’t worry, we’ve got yer back!

Pet Friendly Whale Watching

Cape Cod is home to some of the most amazing whale watching in the world. Although our nearby Barnstable Harbor whale watch boat does not accept dogs, we know one that does! Want to take your pooch on a whale watch? We’ll make that happen!

Pet Friendly Nantucket and

Martha’s Vineyard

If watching reruns of Gilligan’s Island while you’re at work has piqued Fido’s curiosity, both the island ferries accept pets at no cost and are docked 15 minutes from the Inn. Once on Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard with a pet your options for dining & sightseeing may be limited, but you can still have a great time! We’ll send you along with lots of info and recommendations
