The Inn on Main is located right on historic Old King’s Highway (Route 6A). The highway started out as a cart path for local peoples to trade. This home was originally built sometime between 1790 and 1810 by E.W. Crocker, during a time when whaling and trading were at their peak on Cape Cod. The style of the home is Georgian – Full Cape with some Federal influence you see in the side windows around the front door. There were 3 additions, all added on by 1860. The home was entered on the historical registry of homes in 1979.
Many of the original wide plank floors are still present, although currently painted. The restoration of these original floors is planned for the near future.
The Inn on Main has been home to many families from its inception until the mid-1970s when a retired priest bought the property and began its conversion to a bed and breakfast. It has operated as a bed and breakfast since then. Sarah and Chris are the 5th Innkeepers of this glorious “Grand Old Dame.”
Recently updated by the new Innkeepers, many modern updates have been made to accommodate the needs of today’s savvy travelers, while maintaining some of the home’s original character.
The Inn on Main is centrally located on the Cape making it easy to get to your day’s adventure, yet remain in a relatively quaint area along Route 6A. Nearby restaurants and attractions are some of the best the Cape has to offer.
