Ashley Manor
Bed & Breakfast

To experience Ashley Manor is to discover a very special place, one where you’ll want to stay awhile and return to again and again.

“The only thing that matters on the Cape is that you stay a while.” - Paul Theroux

Located in the heart of Cape Cod’s historic district, this circa 1699 colonial inn reflects the elegance and romance of an all-but-forgotten way of life. Beautifully restored, Ashley Manor quietly blends the amenities of your comfort expectations with the grace and dignity of an earlier time.

While originally part of a larger farm tract, today two acres remain to surround Ashley Manor with graceful hedges, stately old trees and natural woods. A charming gazebo completes the aura of a former time, while a carefully sited tennis court blends gently into the surroundings.

Common rooms are large and sunny in summer, cozy and warm in winter...and beautifully furnished with antiques, oriental rugs and graceful country furniture. Here, guests are invited to relax quietly by the fire, read a book from the Manor’s library, or share conversation with the other guests or the innkeeper.

The six bedchambers or suites are carefully decorated and appointed to reflect the 17th century details of the inn.

Each is a spacious, private refuge. All feature modern baths, all but one enjoy working fireplaces, and the suites have large whirlpool tubs.

Each room has its own special charm...some feature New England shuttered windows, or colorful old Nantucket speckled floors, or canopy and pencil post beds. All include those lovely small touches that reveal the innkeepers’ caring attention to detail and your comfort: imported bedside chocolates, the finest soaps, shampoos and lotions, and in-room coffee and tea service for the early riser. Every room has a comfortable sitting area for two, where you can enjoy that cup of tea, or perhaps a good book.

For guests who are reluctant to cut all ties to the 21st century, Ashley Manor has in-room telephones with data ports, and televisions with VCR are also available upon request.

A full complimentary breakfast is included...

Served in front of a roaring fire in the dining room in the colder months, and on the outdoor brick terrace in summer, where the colorful array of flowers will greet you. For that special occasion, we’ll set a cozy table in the library, where you can enjoy a private breakfast in front of one of the inn’s many wonderful fireplaces.

After a day of touring, Ashley Manor will welcome you back...for a set of tennis, afternoon refreshments, complimentary cordials in the evening. Relax on the terrace or enjoy a luxurious whirlpool bath before dinner at one of the nearby fine restaurants. Surely the early Cape Codders lived this well...

So step back in time. Discover Ashley Manor for yourself where serenity, history, and luxurious comfort come together to indulge you with simple pleasures and a sense of times past. You’ll want to stay a while...and return again and again!
