Welcome to Ashley Manor
Our luxury Inn on Cape Cod is located in the heart of Barnstable’s historic district, minutes from Cape Cod Bay, Barnstable Village and Harbor. Our mid-Cape location is a short drive or walk to many beaches and attractions.
Our Barnstable, MA Bed and Breakfast offers two acres of park-like grounds with a spacious backyard patio, gazebo, and tennis court for our guests’ enjoyment. Our six romantic guest rooms include four luxury suites and two deluxe rooms. Each suite features a wood-burning fireplace, full private bath, and a separate two-person Jacuzzi tub, Wi-Fi, and parking.
On sunny summer days you can enjoy breakfast on the brick patio overlooking the lush gardens and tennis court. In cooler months, enjoy your meal in front of a wood burning fire in the formal dining room.
Originally built in 1699, Ashley Manor has seen many additions over the centuries. Evidence of its age and history can be seen in the wide-board flooring (wood usually reserved for the king during colonial times), huge open-hearth fireplaces (one with a beehive oven), hand-glazed wainscoting throughout the Inn. Secret passages connecting the upstairs and downstairs tell stories of a home thought to be a safe house and a hiding place for Tories during the Revolutionary War.
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: Wi-Fi, imported bedside chocolates, the finest soaps, shampoos and conditioners, and in-room coffee are complimentary. Every room has a comfortable sitting area for two, where you can enjoy that cup of tea, or perhaps a good book.
After a day of touring, Ashley Manor will welcome you back…for a set of tennis or pickle ball. You may prefer a light read from one of the many books in the library while indulging in a cordial. Relax on the terrace or enjoy a luxurious whirlpool bath before dinner at one of the nearby fine restaurants. Surely, the early Cape Codder’s lived this well…
