The Inn At the Oaks is a large Victorian home, originally built for a sea captain in 1870 and converted to an Inn in the early 1900’s. Today the Inn has all the old charm of a large Victorian home, with all the modern amenities you would expect in a quality bed and breakfast.
On the ground floor of the Inn, you’ll find four public rooms. There are two light and airy parlors, the breakfast room and a dining area. There is the one guest room on the first floor. There are six guest rooms on the second floor and three on the third floor.
The Inn has a wrap-around porch with rocking chairs in the front and back of the Inn, perfect for sitting with a glass of cold lemonade in the afternoon, or a hot cup of coffee in the morning. There are café tables and chairs right outside the breakfast room, with picnic tables. The two acre property is a rolling landscape of stately oak trees and other beautiful plantings as well as a fire pit complete with S’more’s fixin’s.
Just a few steps from the Inn is the Carriage House, also dating back to the 1870’s. From the outside it appears to be a smaller building, but once inside, you’ll find three large suites each with a separate entrance. The Carriage House contains our dog friendly rooms and it is where we usually recommend rooms for families and for longer stays.
Inside the Inn
When you enter the Inn you’ll be in the original 1870 home of Captain Chipman, and you’ll immediately note the beautiful wood floors, period detail, and expansive light filled rooms. Your Innkeeper will give you a tour of the many beautiful public areas filled with antiques as well as many modern amenities. Linger over a relaxing breakfast. Gather with friends or play a board game by the fire place. Sit back in a rocking chair on one of our expansive decks. We want the Inn to be your “home” on the Outer Cape, and our staff will always strive to make your stay at the Inn one of your best vacations ever.
The Inn sits on 2 acres of tree filled land, centrally located on Rte. 6 and just across from the entrance to the National Seashore. Have a picnic. Make some S’Mores at the fire pit. Take your pup for a walk. You’ll be amazed at how relaxed you will feel at a place so centrally located on the Outer Cape.
