This one-of-a-kind inn includes a 1901 former church, an ornate wood-frame 1882 Victorian, and an 1827 Federal-style house. The decor is a nod to the buildings' respective histories: the Painted Lady's charmingly appointed rooms, for example, are named after former inhabitants. The luxurious rooms in the Abbey, named for the six days of the creation, have whirlpool tubs and gas fireplaces. (If it's available, splurge on the Tuesday room—the incredible stained-glass "compass"
window will take your breath away.) The Bistro serves dazzling, globally inspired dishes in a striking setting.

We visited the Belfry Inne in Sandwich due to our arrival after the end of the season ~ our choice of lodging was limited as many had closed for the season. I am so glad this was the case! The Belfry Inne is an adorable compound comprised of two historic homes and a deconsecrated church abbey, all have rooms for guests. The bistro in the abbey was fantastic and offered items that you'd expect to see in the best restaurants. This Inne offered the
typical B&B amenities but the service (the owner is wonderful and personable!!!) made it phenomenal. Highly recommended for a romantic weekend!
