    5/5 Excellent

    The property is beautifully maintained and conveniently located. Breakfast was lovely and the bed was comfortable. Every inch of space was maximized to provide a comfortable yet cozy stay. The grounds were beautifully manicured, and the staff was attentive to our needs.

    Will Definitely Stay Here Again!

    The Ship's Knees is a charming old inn just a short drive from famous Nauset Beach. Our room and bath were pretty, well appointed, and extremely clean. The hosts were very gracious, and the free breakfast every morning was terrific -- eggs, muffins, fresh fruit, yogurt and more. We will stay here again!
