Accolades & Awards


“Once again in 2023 Candleberry Inn was ranked #1 in the United States and #5 in the World of all Bed and Breakfasts by TripAdvisor.”

Yankee Magazine

“Loved for its epic breakfasts taken in the 1790s dining room, it’s an ideal spot from which to explore the rest of the Cape.”

Tour New England

“The Inn is perfectly located in the geographical center of Cape Cod, making it close to everything our romantic, salt-air peninsula has to offer: biking trails, whale watching, kayaking, golfing, fishing, shopping, theatre, art galleries and our National Seashore Park.”

New England Today

“Stroll through the heart of the Old King’s Highway Historic District and you’ll run right into this Georgian-style beauty, where the nine guest rooms feature Winslow Homer prints and poster beds, fireplaces, and 200-year-old pine floors.”

Frommers Guidebooks

“What a showpiece: This grand 1790 Georgian-style structure with its square-rigger design (two chimneys) is among the most regal sea captains’ homes in town; it was once owned by the 19th-century author Horatio Alger.”

What Our Guests Are Saying


I was impressed how seriously the owners took on the responsibility of ensuring the safety of their guests during this difficult time dealing with CoVid 19.

 This is the first time I have stayed somewhere outside of a large hotel, and I would recommend the Candleberry Inn to anyone who is visiting Cape Cod.

The beach that is within walking distance of the Inn was wonderful, as are all of the restaurants that are also within walking distance.

The location of the Inn also offers easy access to other areas of Cape Cod outside of Brewster…

Angelo is by far one of the most talented and meticulous chefs I have ever encountered. His breakfasts and afternoon treats were the highlight of the trip – especially since he was contending with a gluten free menu. Candleberry Inn is home to the best gluten free cookies and gluten free french toast I have ever had, and the breakfast berries and panna cotta were amazing.

Marco is a wealth of knowledge of the area, and as first time visitors to the cape, this was invaluable. With his direction we were able to plan and make the most of our limited weekend away.

…this is by far the best decision we ever made in accommodations.

Lisa Marie Morales, Shared on Google


We were looking for a relaxing getaway for the weekend and got exactly what we hoped for and more. This place exceeded our expectations! Marco and Angelo are incredibly welcoming and made us feel right at home.

The breakfast was absolutely delicious and so was the afternoon treat. The inn itself has a quaint, historic feel with modern touches – our room was comfortable and beautifully decorated. I spent a lot of time trying to find accommodations for a weekend in the Cape that I felt would be money well spent. 

This is the only place I came across that felt like an amazing value for the price.

“My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon while in Cape Cod. Everything was outstanding. Marco and Angelo are excellent hosts and truly made us feel at home. They had no issues accommodating my allergies. Every meal was made from scratch and I had gluten free waffles for the first time in years!

Our room was spotless and the rest of the property was sanitized and cleaned according to covid policies. We will definitely stay here again and will recommend it to friends/family. 

TripAdvisor rated this the #1 Bed & Breakfast on the Cape, and we wholeheartedly agree!”
