Welcome to the Fernbrook Inn!
The Fernbrook Inn was built in 1881 as a private summer estate. It is
one of the finest examples of Queen Anne shingle style on Cape Cod. Frederick
Law Olmstead, better known as the "Father of American Landscape", planned all
the landscaping for this elegant country estate. Olmstead was renowned for his
design of Central Park in Manhattan. Today, guests of Fernbrook Inn can view
his exotic plantings and stroll through his sunken rose gardens.
Famous owners of Fernbrook included Herbert Kalmus, the inventor of
Technicolor and Cardinal Francis Spellman of New York City. Two American
Presidents and notable Hollywood luminaries such as Walt Disney and Gloria
Swanson chose Fernbrook for their summer destination.
recent years, Fernbrook has undergone extensive renovations to recapture its
majesty and opulence of days gone by. The most notable addition is its 50-foot
lap pool set discreetly within the beautiful Italian garden setting, complete
with fountains and terraces.
This lovely Inn offers many choices of covered porches and balconies to
celebrate with friends or to just be by yourself and relax.
We are located in the heart of the charming village of
Centerville which was founded in the 17th century. A short stroll on Main
Street and you can visit the 1856 General Store, our Historic Museum, or
indulge with a ice cream from the famous Four Seas Ice Cream Parlor.
One of Cape Cods finest beaches, Craigville Beach, is a half mile
from our doorstep. Hyannis Harbor is less than 4 miles away and is the home of
the Ferry service to both Nantucket and Marthas Vineyard. Downtown
Hyannis offers many fine restaurants and a wide variety of shopping as well.
