There is a point where a house approaches a work of art, and the Captain Farris House is such a case. This jewel of a house was built in 1845 in a historic section of South Yarmouth known as Bass River.
This former sea captain's house was purchased in 2005 by Michael & Nancy Lumia. A perfect blend of antique and contemporary, the inn has eight magnificent rooms, each one a romantic getaway, lovingly detailed with modern amenities; private baths, some with Jacuzzis; beautiful antique king or queen-size beds; cable TVs with VCR and in-house videos; bathrobes; and air conditioning.
Two suites upstairs feature sunken bathrooms, queen-size beds, living rooms, and upscale European flair. One room offers a queen-size four-poster bed, Jacuzzi, and a walk-out sundeck.
The Captain Farris House is in the National Register of Historic Places and exudes all the warmth and color you expect in a top-notch bed and breakfast.
Full gourmet three-course breakfasts are served either in the dining room or in the glass enclosed courtyard. Afternoon refreshments are also served. Next door is the Elisha Jenkins House, which has two huge suits.
