Winstead Inn

An Intimate Cape Cod Resort

An in-town location paired with the freedom to enjoy the private beach at our Cape Cod beach hotel makes the Winstead a singular Cape Cod vacation destination. With 15 guest rooms, our Harwich inn is just the right size: small enough to offer an intimate experience yet, with expansive grounds, a magnificent saltwater pool, and a great room worthy of the name, large enough to feel like a true resort.

Located on Parallel Street, a quiet lane lined with historic homes, the Winstead Inn has a majestic façade in keeping with its elegant neighbors. A wide veranda, lined with rocking chairs, overlooks the street and is a wonderful place to start your day over coffee or relax with a glass of wine before venturing out for dinner at a nearby restaurant. After dinner, settle into an outdoor sofa and plan the next day’s excursions.

Tucked away behind our Harwich hotel is the heated saltwater pool: a hidden paradise where you and your family are certain to spend hours frolicking in the water or sunning on the terrace while listening to the soothing sounds of the fountain. Sprinkled throughout the grounds are lush gardens arranged with seating areas.

Inside, you’ll find spaces that seamlessly blend Old-World elegance with Cape Cod chic. In the Great Room, where complimentary continental breakfast is served, is a massive fieldstone fireplace surrounded by oversized chairs. An additional sitting room has the feel of a parlor in a sea captain’s home, complete with a grand piano.

Each of the guest rooms is whimsically named and has been individually decorated. Many include four-poster beds, and a private terrace or gas-operated fireplace…or both. We offer an array of rooms and suites, one of which will prove perfect for your visit. Coming to the Cape for a romantic getaway? Choose a room with a canopy bed and a fireplace. Traveling with children? Consider a room with two queen beds, a wet bar and a private terrace, or a suite with a kitchenette or two bedrooms.
Within walking distance are casual eateries, a market with various sundries and supplies, a package store with an excellent selection of wines, spirits and craft beer, a park with tennis courts, pickleball courts, a playground, a baseball field, and the Cape Cod Rail Trail, 25-plus miles of paved bikeway that provide an unsurpassed peek of hidden Cape Cod.
Sounds perfect, doesn’t it?
