"What a truly wonderful welcome! Freddy greeted us so warmly we felt instantly "at home" in his beautiful , clean and very comfortable home on The Cape. Crackling log fire, complimentary drinks (including gorgeous wine!), savoury snacks, chocolates, hot tea and coffee, DVDs, CDs, an excellent collection of books ... Freddy ensured we had the perfect stay."

"We didn't think that Freddy and Ruth could improve on perfection but they've done it! We've stayed at Honeysuckle Hill a number of times and each time we find that something new and delightful has been added - like the hot tub in the garden, the gazebo surrounded by woodlands and new additions to the spectacular breakfasts."

"Fabulous Innkeepers in the best traditions of England and New England. Freddy, we found you a genius of a chef."

"We've stayed three separate times in the off-season. Each time the Inn seems cozier and more 'well-appointed' than the last time. You can tell the owners truly love their historic inn which is on the National Registry of Historic Sites."

"In August we travelled through New England and the adjoining area of Canada. Everywhere we stayed was first-class but the Honeysuckle Hill was the best of the lot. We were made to feel right at home from the moment we arrived."

"From the time we were greeted by Freddy, our innkeeper, until we were bid farewell, staying at the Honeysuckle Hill Inn was an absolutely wonderful experience."

"Of all the hotels we have stayed at in NY, DC and Cape Cod, this is by far the best. Excellent service, formidable breakfast."

"Shelley and I thank you for the triumph of hospitality that is Honeysuckle Hill Inn.”
