Best of Boston

2012 Best Inn, Cape Cod

The Platinum Pebble

This eight-room inn, now in its second season, is more Design Within Reach than scalloped dust ruffle (think: hide rugs, mirrored side tables, and his-and-hers rain showers). Fortunately, that modern vibe doesn’t come at the expense of those all-important B&B amenities: generous breakfasts—here a bounty of fresh pastries, breads, yogurt, and fruit, served poolside—and afternoon tea.
