The Mulberry Tree Inn is nestled in the historic district of South Dennis. Described by some as a "historic gem" the home was built by Captain Eleazer Nickerson in 1802 for his wife, eight sons, and daughter. Built as a traditional Cape the home faces South maximizing the warmth and light of the sun as was frequently done in early American building. Captain Nickerson was not only a successful sea captain but for a time in the mid 1800's he served as the Postmaster of South Dennis. With its proximity to Bass River the home was a perfect stop for the packet ships sailing up the river.
During its lifetime the home has been carefully and lovingly restored. Most of the floors are original as well as windows, doors and hardware. The home though lends itself to relaxation with the bright and sunny living room and comfortable sitting room with library corner. Breakfast is served in the beautiful tavern style dining room. In cooler months warm yourself in front of one of the three working fireplaces. When warmer weather comes, both guest rooms are equipped with air conditioning.
The grounds are open and spacious with gardens, outdoor seating, and a wonderful hammock beneath the beautiful Mulberry Tree for which the inn is named.
Whatever your reason for visiting the inn you will find a warm welcome and courteous attention to your needs. The goal of our inn is that your stay with us be a comfortable, happy, and memorable one.
