An inviting alternative to contemporary hotels, our inn is a unique part of the Falmouth community, offering a glimpse of authentic Cape Cod life, past and present.
We are, decidedly and unabashedly, a place where things of the past are not only preserved,
but genuinely preferred to the generic atmosphere of many lodging options, today. At ShoreWay Acres, guests will find authenticity in our historic surroundings, in our hospitable staff and in our other guests.
Our family-owned and managed Inn began with nine rooms and two bathrooms in our Worthington House, an historic sea captain’s home built in 1806, and bombarded eight times by the British in the War of 1812. Purchased by the Dineen family in 1959, it was the beginning of a decades-long preservation project on one of Falmouth’s oldest and most historic streets. Today, the Inn offers 80 rooms, some with kitchens… all with private baths and contemporary conveniences of refrigerators, voicemail, complimentary Wi-Fi, etc. ShoreWay Acres is now comprised of six buildings, four of which were converted from historic homes into B&B style accommodations and two 1960’s hotel and motel buildings, which are well on their way to becoming another part of Falmouth’s “historic” past.
Keeping history and tradition alive is best done by people who have been a part of it, and we are pleased that many of our staff, along with our family members and so many of our return guests have been at ShoreWay Acres for a long time…….some of us for decades! We’re one of Falmouth’s few remaining family-owned properties where the second and third generation of the founding family is still involved in the day to day operations of the Inn.
Our secluded location on one of Falmouth’s most historic streets offers you the restful solitude of residential Cape Cod. Yet, just a stroll will take you to charming Falmouth Village and picture-perfect Surf Drive Beach with its spectacular view of Martha’s Vineyard and Nobska Lighthouse.
