We made an impromptu decision that we needed a weekend retreat. We were delighted to find availability at Simmons Homestead especially, as we had also brought our Yorkie with us. The innkeeper, Bill, was delightfully attentive...equal to the careful attention he has obviously given the Homestead through the years. The details of all of his "collections" are amazing and fill...

It is always fun having some folks who just want to kinda getaway for a few days and are nice enough to choose us. We enjoyed the 3 of you very much. We like having folks who just feel at home and have nice relaxing time. I am sure all 3 of you will be back again soon and We...

We are coming to Hyannis with our dog to spend Thanksgiving and found Simmons Homestead Inn, to stay for three nights. I guess that this Inn is being advertised as historical place so we are not expecting much from the rooms. On another hand we are not expecting that all rooms would not have locks! To be fair, our Bird...

This is tough one to answer. Use the microwave to warm up food like sausages, ham, homemade bread and such. Warming meats and such use newspaper to absorb any excess fats. Usually have a small paper towel on top, thought I did that morning. AS to brown toast. It was cinnamon raisin french toast pan toasted with an egg-cinnamon batter...

it's a bit cluttered, the food isn't gourmet, the fixtures aren't the newest, but man oh many is it comfortable, welcoming, and friendly! Just got home from our 6th stay at the Simmons Homestead and we always leave trying to figure out when we can return. Bill is a great host (and April fills in admirably when he isn't around)....

And .... it's folks like you two that help make it feel homey, comfortable and relaxing. After all, that's what we want and why you keep coming back and back. Thanks, and a mug will be set up this year :-)

We came here with our small dog, and it is very dog friendly. If you don't like dogs, that might be an issue -- while dogs don't run amok, even well behaved ones will sometimes decide to "discuss" territory at any hour. Bill the Innkeeper is a friendly eccentric, and it shows throughout the property. There are various signs throughput...

Knowing the area and it's history makes the experience much richer. Bill, the host and inn keeper, is very willing to share his home (amazing decor) and experiences from where to go to when (to catch the ferry to Nantucket, the show at the nearby Hyannis Melody Tent, beaches and local restaurants). He's curated at great list of menus and...

This place is very close to the center of town where the shopping and restaurants are but, unlike what you may be told when you get there or on the phone, it is NOT close to walking distance to the beach. You basically have to drive to a beach and pay $15.00, for as long as you stay that day....

A uniquely wonderful Inn. They not only accomodated 3 large dogs, they walked them and cared for them while we were out. The "where to eat and play" advice alone was worth staying there for. It's a combination of a vintage british car museum, an ecclectic collectables museum, and a fine old rambling New England Inn. Long after you forget...
