About The Inn
Welcome to An English Garden Bed & Breakfast where you will delight in a personal, intimate setting reminiscent of the old seaside cottages from England and historical Cape Cod.
Formerly known as The Loydon Inn and the Innisfree, An English Garden Bed and Breakfast was built in 1922 and lovingly renovated in 1999. It’s one of the oldest bed and breakfasts in Dennis Port. The grey shingled cottage is surrounded by blooming English roses, hydrangea bushes and delphiniums that cascade over the white picket fence. Although every season is beautiful, the spring and early summer are when you will be able to enjoy the luscious garden in full bloom.
The inn has been family owned and operated, allowing for a more small-feel and personable vibe.
The inn has 9 cozy basic guest rooms (1 queen or king bed) in the main inn and 2 one-bedroom suites, located in the detached, quaint carriage house. This makes the perfect romantic getaway with your significant other or enjoy the peace and quiet with a lovely book overlooking the garden. Located one block from the beach, partial ocean views can be seen by most rooms. Keep the windows open while asleep at night for a touch of an ocean breeze and a breath of fresh salty air.
Cape Cod Location
Part of New England, Cape Cod holds a historical charm. A maritime economy, the Cape is a hidden jewel that many tourists travel to each year for its wonderous beaches, clam chowder, seafood, and family adventures.
The conveniently located Mid-Cape bed & breakfast is approximately 150 yards from a sandy beach where, in summer, the warm waters of Nantucket Sound average 72 degrees. The property and gardens are surrounded by 11 acres of conservation land with well-maintained walking trails. Easily accessible from our inn are both upscale and casual restaurants, ferries for day trips to the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, as well as championship public golf courses, beautiful beaches, bike trails, tennis courts, shopping, fishing, water sports, and the Cape Playhouse theatre.
All guests will experience our full, hot breakfast in our breakfast room, full of bright and airy windows. One can see the ocean while sipping their coffee. We begin your day with coffee, tea, and a full, hot breakfast that is Chef’s Choice. Each meal is unique, using the freshest seasonal ingredients.
Breakfast is served daily during peak-season May-October from 8:00 AM to 10:00 AM and there is an available Keurig coffee maker and electric tea kettle supplied with coffee and tea that guests can use throughout the day or during the winter months of the off-season. Breakfast is NOT available November through April.
Beach chairs and beach towels are available to guests on a first-come basis. The public beach is a two-minute walk down the road off of Inman Rd. If you prefer to drive, you can drive to unload or park on-site but you will need to purchase a beach sticker in advance.
Yoga classes on the beach are offered to all English Garden guests at our sister property down the road at By the Sea Guests’ private beach every Saturday 8-9 AM EST seasonally. Equipment is provided.
Each bedroom has a private bathroom, heat and air-conditioning, WIFI, a flat-screen TV, and a balcony or private deck. Most bathrooms include a standard bathtub.
Shared guest spaces, include mini fridges, microwaves, a cozy parlor with a fireplace, the breakfast room with dining tables, and seating areas in the luscious gardens. There is also an outdoor shower but it’s only used to rinse off after returning from the beach.
Located down the road from the beach, many rooms have beautiful partial ocean views from the rooms or private balconies. What’s better than waking up to the ocean outside your window and a glorious cup of coffee?
