About us

Who are we?

The Tidewater Inn is family owned and has been serving visitors to Cape Cod for almost half a century! Centrally located in the heart of Cape Cod’s vacationland, we are minutes away from beaches, boating, fishing, golf, shopping and family friendly attractions. Situated on three and a half acres, we abut Mill Creek, a salt water estuary that meanders to Lewis Bay and Nantucket Sound.

The village of Hyannis, known as “Cape Cod’s Downtown”, is only a mile away and has over sixty unique shops, boutiques and galleries along its Main Street. Hyannis is also home to over 54 of the Cape’s finest restaurants, ranging from formal dining with entertainment, to informal family style establishments. They offer a wide range of fare to suit every appetite.

Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard are only an hour away by boat! The modern, high-speed ferries of Hy-line Cruises and the Steamship Authority depart several times each day (seasonal) from Hyannis Harbor.
