The Captain Farris House

Romantic Bed and Breakfast on Cape Cod

A Unique and beautiful bed & breakfast inn,

voted "One of New England's Best" by Fodor's.


This beautiful bed and breakfast is ideally located on mid Cape Cod in the historic Bass River Village of South Yarmouth. The Captain Farris House is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.  Beautifully restored, this circa 1849 Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast Inn is beautifully furnished with antiques and elegant window treatments reflecting romance and a peacefulness of an earlier time.


Each beautifully appointed room/suite is individually decorated, romantic, detailed and comfortable. Each morning enjoy our carefully prepared seasonal breakfast served at your own table for two in the period decorated formal dining room or in the bright and cheery enclosed courtyard.   In the afternoon, enjoy the finest teas and home baked cookies.  As evening draws near, relax with a complimentary glass of sherry or port wine in the elegant parlor, on the lovely wrap around porch, or among the beautiful gardens.
