Welcome to The Inn at the Oaks
At The Gateway To The National Seashore
The Inn at the Oaks is a charming 13 room Inn located in Cape Cod’s historic Eastham, MA. We offer spacious and light-filled accommodations, delicious continental breakfasts, thoughtful amenities, and an unfaltering attention to detail that will ensure your Cape Cod vacation experience will be cherished for years to come.
We have a variety of rooms that will suit every taste and budget. Our four suites are perfect for longer stays, and the eight rooms in the Main House have many special features like a fireplace, a wood stove, a private porch, or a soaking tub. We also have spacious pet friendly rooms in our Carriage House, each with separate entrances and thoughtful attention to the comfort of our four-legged guests and their owners.
Built in 1870, the Inn has been serving guests since the 1920’s, when naturalist writer Henry Beston periodically stayed at the Inn while writing his classic book The Outermost House. Beston’s book is said to have inspired the formation of the National Seashore, signed into law by President Kennedy in 1961, and protecting our cherished coastline forever.
Eastham is the “Gateway to the National Seashore” where you will find forty miles of pristine sandy beach, marshes, ponds, and uplands. Lighthouses and wild cranberry bogs offer a glimpse of Cape Cod’s past. Swimming beaches and walking and biking trails beckon every visitor with an appreciation for nature’s great gifts. The Inn is across from the National Seashore’s Visitor Center, and we are an easy drive from historic towns like Chatham, Orleans, Wellfleet, and Provincetown, where you will find a diverse mix of shops, restaurants, theaters, galleries, and so much more.
We invite you to visit us at the Inn and enjoy the wonders of what many call “the Cape the way it used to be.” We are proud that many of our guests consider the Inn their “home” on Cape Cod, and come back year after year. Come experience the accommodations and friendly service that recently won us Trip Advisor’s Certificate of Excellence. Call us today. (877) 255-1886.
