Situated at the heart of the charmingly named town of Sandwich, this historic 48-room Cape Cod inn has been welcoming weary travelers for 300 years. Named for Daniel Webster, the prominent Boston lawyer and U.S. senator who used to lodge here in the early 1800s, the property exudes traditional New England charm, from the four-poster canopy beds to the antique furniture — all without sacrificing 21st-century must-haves such as WiFi and whirlpool tubs. The elegant fire engine–red inn is set among manicured gardens, with a swimming pool and outdoor Jacuzzi. There are four dining rooms, so guests can choose to eat in a classic candlelit room, by the fireside in the Music and Webster Rooms, by moonlight in the romantic conservatory, or on the patio. Expect refined comfort food such as filet mignon and spring duck with wild mushrooms, but the kitchen also prepares entire gluten-free and vegetarian menus, as well as using lots of organic and sustainable produce. Other sybaritic diversions await in the Beach Plum Spa, which offers a slew of treatments, from organic facials to signature seashell massages.
In the Area
Summer visitors will want to hit Cape Cod’s atmospheric beaches: Sandwich has two ocean beaches and three freshwater ones, all suitable for swimming and beachcombing. Or if you’d rather just watch the action, hit the Cape Cod Canal Bike Paths, which run along the canal separating Cape Cod from the rest of Massachusetts — the paths run seven miles each way and are popular with bikers, fishermen and boat spotters gawking at the vessels navigating the canal. Auto aficionados should make a beeline for the Heritage Museum and Gardens in Sandwich; the museum houses a jaw-dropping collection of classic cars, from a 1931 Duesenberg Model J Derham Tourster owned by Gary Cooper to a 1909 White Steam Car Model M owned by President William Howard Taft.
How to Get There
This was our second time staying with these friendly people. The first review we mentioned that the TVs were not HD, otherwise this was about the best time we have had staying in an Inn or Hotel. This visit we had HD TVs and Cable. Everything else was as great as last time. All the staff is very friendly and welcoming, the restaurant food is excellent. We especially love the Tavern for supper. This year we discovered the Gathering Room for reading or playing cribbage.
It was everything we needed in a resort the wait staff in the tavern accommodated all of our needs.just a great experience over all.we suggest this to anyone wanting to get away.So all n all just sit down by the fireplace and enjoy.

We stopped by the Daniel Webster Inn for lunch on the recommendation of the locals. It's on the main street in Sandwich and is charming, although it has been reconstructed following a fire. We felt since we were in Sandwich, we should have sandwiches. I got the smoky burger and my husband got the turkey burger. Both were incredible. I'm sure their other menu items are equally amazing. There was a local crowd there and everyone seemed to know everyone else. Great food, great service and great atmosphere.
My wife and I spent New Years, 2019, at the Inn. What a gem. The staff was great,and the room was elegant. We ate in restaurant, the service and food was excellent. The inn boasted lite fireplaces, beautiful rugs, and nice furniture., We enjoyed first night in the little town of East Sandwich.We will be back
