Welcome to our Cape Cod Bed & Breakfast Inn

Inn on the Sound is a jewel set in destination Falmouth – one of the most popular beach communities on Cape Cod. High on a bluff, our inn offers stunning ocean views.  From our decks, guests may capture the sunrise and the sunset; moon rise and moon set; the calm waters on the sound between the upper Cape and the island of Martha’s Vineyard.

Our eleven guest rooms are airy, comfortable, and relaxed- contemporary, each with a private bath. We renovated the original 1872 building using quality materials, fixtures, and furnishings. Guest room options include: ocean front, ocean view, and garden view. Several guest rooms feature a private balcony. One offers a kitchenette. We receive rave reviews for the clean, calm comfort of all our rooms. This is bliss, we’ve been told.

The beautifully decorated living room enjoys outstanding ocean views. During the Fourth of July firework? It’s a front row seat! Off the front living room is another comfortable seating area and library.

Gourmet, homemade breakfasts: we serve a hot special breakfast dish daily in the dining room and on the deck. In addition, we offer a bountiful breakfast buffet – with baked goods, yogurt, cereal, and artful fruit platters. Our always-available guest panty includes a refrigerator, microwave, goodies, teas and coffee – another guest favorite.

Historic Falmouth: Since the mid-1800s people seeking ocean air have been landing in Falmouth. Our picture-postcard town remains a coveted destination, with families and friends returning year after year. Guests enjoy:

  • the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard (within walking distance of the inn)
  • Falmouth’s 65 miles of coastline
  • Numerous casual and fine-dining eateries (including a noted patisserie)
  • Sunset cruises, fishing trips, whale-watching tours
  • Falmouth’s five golf courses
  • the Shining Sea bike path (22-mile round trip through two villages and cranberry bogs)
  • the annual Falmouth Road Race, finish line just steps from our door
  • day trips to Boston, Provincetown, and Newport

We welcome guests year round. The natural beauty of the Cape is on display in all seasons. We are steps from the Falmouth Heights beach, a favorite sunbathing spot. We have front-row seating for the annual Fourth of July fireworks. In cooler months, guests enjoy the roaring fire in our common room. And in deep winter, the Inn’s library provides solace and a place for introspection after a day of beach combing.

It is a joy to welcome and pamper our guests at Inn on the Sound. We are flattered that so many friends return annually. Newcomers will find the Inn a blissful, peaceful, comforting, and spotless home-away-from-home. Just come!

The Inn on the Sound was truly a safe haven. Tucked along a winding ocean drive, the rooms are just as jaw dropping as their view. I couldn’t of imagined a better place to stay and reconnect with friends. Breakfasts in the morning were superb and cozy fires before turning in for the night brought guests together to share adventures of the day. I highly recommend this Inn for any Falmouth Visitor.

Cape Cod is a geographic cape extending into the Atlantic Ocean from the southeastern corner of mainland Massachusetts, in the northeastern United States. Its historic, maritime character and ample beaches attract heavy tourism during the summer months.

As defined by the Cape Cod Commission’s enabling legislation, Cape Cod is conterminous with Barnstable County, Massachusetts.[2] It extends from Provincetown in the northeast to Woods Hole in the southwest, and is bordered by Plymouth to the northwest.

Since 1914, Cape Cod has been separated from the mainland by the Cape Cod Canal. The canal cuts 17.5 miles (28.2 km) roughly across the base of the peninsula, though small portions of the Cape Cod towns of Bourne and Sandwich lie on the mainland side of the canal. Two highway bridges cross the Cape Cod Canal: the Sagamore Bridge and the Bourne Bridge. In addition, the Cape Cod Canal Railroad Bridge carries railway freight and limited passenger services onto the Cape. Cape territory is divided into 15 towns with many villages.

To the south of Cape Cod lie Nantucket Sound; Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, both large islands; and the mostly privately owned Elizabeth Islands.
