Welcome to our Cape Cod Oceanfront Bed & Breakfast

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.

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.

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. (See “Things to Do“)

Our twelve 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.

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

Delicious 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 fruit platters. Our always-available guest pantry includes a refrigerator, microwave, goodies, teas and coffee – another guest favorite.
