About Captain Farris House Romantic Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast

There is a point where a house approaches a work of art, and the Captain Farris House is such a case. This jewel of a house was built in 1845 in a historic section of South Yarmouth known as Bass River. A perfect blend of antique and contemporary, the inn has eight magnificent rooms, each one a romantic getaway, lovingly detailed with modern amenities; private baths, some with Jacuzzis; beautiful antique king or queen-size beds; cable TVs with VCR and in-house videos; bathrobes; and air conditioning. Two suites upstairs feature sunken bathrooms, queen-size beds, living rooms, and upscale European flair. One room offers a queen-size four-poster bed, Jacuzzi, and a walk-out sundeck. The Captain Farris House is in the National Register of Historic Places and exudes all the warmth and color you expect in a top-notch bed and breakfast. Full gourmet three-course breakfasts are s erved either in the dining room or in the glass enclosed courtyard. Afternoon refreshments are also served. Next door is the Elisha Jenkins House which has our honeymoon suite.
