    Lonely Planet review

    This place packs in a lot, with solid amenities and appealing period decor. Best of all, it's just a 0.4 mile walk to Nauset Beach. Centered on an old sea captain's home, the 17 rooms have nautical themes. Sea captains were accustomed to close quarters, and some of the rooms are tight on elbow room; others are generous suites.

    Our independent authors have visited Ship's Knees Inn and selected this as one of our recommended accommodation in Cape Cod.
