Best of Boston

2004 Best Hotel, Bed and Breakfast, Cape Cod

Land’s End Inn

Only Philistines and acrophobes could fail to fall in love with this, the most rapturous among Cape Cod’s many small inns. Part oasis, part museum, the property perches high above Gull Hill and peers over what seems like every crevice of Cape Cod. If you somehow get tired of the view, you can turn you attention to the luxuriant gardens and lavish collection of ornate late-19th-century antiques, Tiffany lamps, and statues. If it’s free, book the Bay Tower Room which hovers above the sea, dunes, and miles of marsh; you’ll feel like you’re sleeping not just at the tip of the Cape, but on top of the world.
