A Massachusetts bed and breakfast on Cape Cod is being recognized as one of the top B & Bs in the entire world.

The Candleberry Inn on Cape Cod in Brewster was ranked by Tripadvisor users as the best bed and breakfast in the United States and No. 2 on the global list.

The nine-room inn is located on Main Street and is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places. The Maine House’s dining room and Seacroft Suite were built between 1780 and 1790, and the Georgian Federal-style building at the front of the inn was built in the early 1800s.

“People love the location. They love the quaint vibe and they love the service. So the owners have done a great job making it really feel like home,” said Casey Brogan, a Tripadvisor consumer travel expert.

“I still can’t believe it. It hasn’t hit me yet,” Marco DiDomizio, co-owner of the Candleberry Inn, said of the Tripadvisor ranking.

DiDomizio and fellow owner Angelo Ferraro aim for simple elegance without pretense and offer up personal touches like sweet treats in the afternoon or chocolates left on the pillows.

“We pay great attention to our guests, but I think a piece of it is also Cape Cod,” Ferraro said. “When you cross the Sagamore Bridge, it seems like you’re in a different world altogether.”

Upgrades to the historic inn include everything from luxurious sheets and beds to custom cabinets and countertops.

“When they get into the guest room, they just want to dive right in and just cuddle up,” DiDomizio said.
