Shoreway Acres Inn

Cape Cod, New England

The hotel

If you're looking for an authentic Cape Cod experience, then Shoreway Acres Inn is the place to be. This friendly, third-generation, family-run resort is set in acres of lawns interspersed with elm trees in the heart of historic Falmouth Village. This secluded location offers respite from the everyday bustle yet is just a short walk from Main Street and the beach with pretty views of Martha's Vineyard and Nobska Lighthouse. The Inn began as the nine-room Worthington House, a sea captain's home dating back to 1806. It expanded to include three more historic homes and two traditional hotel lodges, giving the Inn 80 rooms set in a nostalgic atmosphere. ShoreWay Acres’ family and staff are dedicated to keeping the Inn’s rich history and tradition alive for generations to come.

We decided last minute to visit the Cape and were fortunate that the Shoreways had a room still available for us. I was pleasantly surprised when we arrived as we were so close to everything ( the main strip, the ferry and the beach - all within 10-15 min walk). The staff was so friendly and accommodating and the rooms were very spacious. My… Read more

The staff was so friendly and accommodating and the rooms were very spacious. My daughter loved that there was both an outdoor and indoor swimming pool and enjoyed the carriage swings on the property. Even though the hotel is abit outdated, it was very comfortable, clean and charming. I look forward to visiting again (hopefully in the fall). Read less

We were staying for a couple of nights and this was perfect for that. Only downside is that it doesn't have electric vehicle charging which is pretty much a requirement for us these days. The room was clean and spacious. The fridge/freezer and microwave came in very useful

We started our New England coach tour with three nights at this hotel, and they were a very good way to start the holiday. The inn is centrally located in Falmouth (near the shops and restaurants) but is not on a bust street, and it is a 10 minute stroll to the quiet beach.

We started our New England coach tour with three nights at this hotel, and they were a very good way to start the holiday. The inn is centrally located in Falmouth (near the shops and restaurants) but is not on a bust street, and it is a 10 minute stroll to the quiet beach. The staff were very helpful and made the stay better, the breakfast was sufficient for the days we were there, and the room was quiet so we slept well. I can recommend this Inn for a few nights when touring round New England, as both the hotel and Falmouth strike you as being of a time before now, and in a good way. Read less

Prettily situated in spacious green gardens with birdlife, yet just a short, flat walk behind the main street where many reasonably priced eateries can be found. The rooms were spacious and well appointed, although a little 'tired' on the carpets and curtains. The autumn weather produced rather damp, fusty smells until an airspray was employed… Read more

Recently we stayed at the ShareWay Acres as part of a Road Scholar event. The location was excellent as we could walk to local restaurants and shops. While there the weather turned bad causing severe damage including the Inn's lobby. The staff provided guidance and flashlights in advance plus extended our checkout when the power went out. Once the power was restored the restaurant quickly made us breakfast and provided additional guidance. Special thanks to Paula and Steven as well as other staff members. Read less
