Your hosts, John and Lisa, met in high school over 40 years ago and their love for each other included a mutual love for Cape Cod. With young children and a tight budget, they rented small cabins for short summer stays in Falmouth. Eventually, they rented larger houses in East Orleans before finally graduating to a house of their own in Eastham in 2007 which was their summer home and year long weekend destination for relaxation.
After careers in large Civil Construction (John) and Early Childhood Education (Lisa), an extended period of “Covid quarantining” at their house on the Cape convinced them that the time was right to realize a life long dream of owning an Inn and becoming permanent residents of the Cape. They purchased The Tern Inn from Dan and Sue Edwards on March 10, 2021.
Our goal is to create an environment where people can enjoy the Cape while staying at a Coastal Casual location with some old Cape Cod charm. Please come and stay with us and fall in love with the Cape yourself.
A note on Dan and Sue – we cannot thank them enough for the loving restorations they did to the Inn during their ownership and the stellar reputation they established. They have been generous with their time and advice during the transition and they have become both mentors and friends to us.
