Inn Surroundings

Escape.....just steps to our spectacular, private, mile-long beach and lull away the hours on our fine white sands. Stroll lazily along our windswept dunes; gaze past white sails to the horizon become absorbed and the rest of the world slips by...

It's true ~ our guests call it "dreamy" ~ the summer-dressed, white-wicker porch is glassed, screened, and so inviting with cool summer breezes for quiet musing, reading and relaxation. From this space, enjoy our colorful and fragrant perennial gardens of purfumed Chinese Silk Trees, French-lace Hydrangeas, roses, day lilies and multiple varied plantings.

Dunscroft is highly rated and approved by Zagat, Fodor's, Frommer's, Karen Brown Guides, AAA, Star Service and Mobil Travel Guide.

We celebrate 65 years, since 1947, serving guests fine fare and warm hospitality from 'round the world. We invite you to celebrate with us.

The gathering room with library, a nice selection of books and magazines for your reading pleasure, two sitting areas, a genuine wood-burning fireplace for warm-winter-fuzzies, and three sets of beautiful French doors open onto the three-season verandah.....just another space for your peaceful escape.

Relax on the patio.

Step from the verandah to the beautiful oval, brick patio bordered by French Lace Hydrangeas, fragrant Silk Trees and perennial gardens of brilliant hues, beset with tables and chairs for contemplation by sun or moon ~ by night under our brilliantly clear, star-studded skies.

Enjoy musing, reading or enjoying your own picnic on the north lawn under the shade of 100 year old Oaks and Maples.

Living Room

HARWICH PORT, just next door to Chatham, is a quaint and charming seaside village on the warmest-water side of Cape Cod, waters averaging 76-78 degrees July and August with three beautiful harbors and boats galore. You can enjoy miles of beach strolling from one harbor to the next; it is here that you brave the breakwaters or rest upon our sun-drenched boulders by day, and gaze upon our star-studded skies by night. Stroll lazily for lunch, dinner or an ice cream cone downtown, to our unique boutique shops, art and antique galleries, or go for that golf or tennis game, just steps away. Being so central on Cape Cod, 10-15 Restaurants are within a 5 mile radius, 6-7 within a 1 mile walk.

You cannot ask for a finer CENTRAL LOCATION than HARWICH PORT to hang your hat and tour the whole Cape within an easy drive to all destinations. Welcome to our wonderful village and DUNSCROFT BY THE SEA, where a delightful experience awaits you, and we wait to greet you !!
