  Opening Statement: "The Fort Hill Bed & Breakfast has the most prime location of any B&B on Cape Cod" Overlooking the Atlantic Ocean in the scenic Fort Hill Area of the Cape Cod National Seashore, the award-winning, small historic inn consists of 2 suites and an ocean-view cottage. Suites are furnished with antiques, have private baths, sitting rooms and include a full breakfast. Eastham is close to beaches, dining, whale-watching, shopping, nature areas and near Chatham, Wellfleet + Provincetown.  
  More Details: Built in 1864 by Sylvanus Knowles, the classic Greek revival Farmhouse shares its unique location on Fort Hill with two other historic homes and a host of wildlife. Owned by the Knowles family until 1943, the farmhouse and surrounding landscape remain relatively untouched by the intrusions of the modern world. In 1962 the Federal Government protected the Fort Hill Area as part of the Cape Cod National Seashore. In 1995 the Sylvanus Knowes House was placed on the National Register of Historic Places by the United States Park Service. Since 1990, the Fort Hill Bed and Breakfast at the Sylvanus Knowles House has provided guests with magnificent views, historic charm, and exceptional comfort. Uniquely set on three private acres of lawns and gardens removed from the bustle of everyday life, the setting is ideal for a quiet vacation, a weekend getaway, or as home base while exploring Cape Cod. The inn's three guest accommodations, two suites located in the historic wing of the main house and one very private cottage, are gracious and generously sized. Each suite/cottage is a private refuge, uniquely decorated to reflect the casually refined atmosphere of Cape Cod. All suites have modern private baths, queen size beds, free Wifi, Flat screen TVs/ DVD s, AM/FM radios with CD players, individually controlled heat and air-conditioning, down comfortors, separate guest entrances, hair dryers, beverage refrigerators, and top quality linens. In each of our special living rooms, whether it is your private library/sitting room or the common room, you will be treated to the finest in luxury, comfort and convenience. We encourage our guests to enjoy an early morning beverage in the guest living room with working fireplace, a perfect place to read, share a quiet conversation or leaf through a Cape Cod guide book, restaurant menus, local paper or area maps. A full country breakfast is prepared fresh each morning and includes such tasty treats as baked apples with raspberry-cider glaze, fresh fruit cup, cheesy-chive egg souffle, and Grand Marnier French toast. We surprise you each morning with a different homemade bread or muffin. These might include our special Sweet Jammie or oatmeal datenut muffins, or perhaps our buttermilk-current scones, hot from the oven. If you visit Fort Hill in Eastham for a leisurely walk along its scenic trails you will never foret its beauty. Additionally, you will be just minutes from long sandy beaches, miles of biking and hiking trails, boutiques and galleries, and many National Historic Register designations. Spend a day at Coast Guard Beach, explore the National Seashore, or explore one of the numerous Marshes and hiking Trails. Nearby are restaurants, museums, shoppingand theatre. Try a whale watching trip, kayaking, biking, baseball, fishing or golf. It's all right here, or take a day trip to one of the islands.
