The weather is picture perfect on Cape Cod. We are pleased to have guests from around New England who have joined us this weekend and we still have a couple of nights open. Several of our guests are meeting friends on our wrap around veranda later this afternoon and then heading off to a wonderful dinner at The Glass Onion a renowned restaurant right around the corner. Enjoy your holiday as we celebrate the heroism of the U.S. men and women who died while in the military service.
Come stay at our cape cod bed & breakfast and among other activities, take a short stroll around the corner and enjoy the newest exhibit “Greasy Luck: tales of Falmouth’s Whaling Industry” at Falmouth Museums on the Green.

Hours are Tuesday through Friday from 10 am to 4 pm and Saturdays 10 am to 1 pm through October 9th.
Many of you know that we are scheduled to officially open our Cape Cod Inn on May 27, 2010 for Memorial Day weekend. We just had an unofficial opening with a couple of very special guests. About 6 weeks ago a movie producer stopped by our Inn to see our renovations and request if we would be able to accomodate a couple of actors for a short film he was producing in May. We told him we were officially opening the bed & breakfast Memorial Day weekend but we felt that we could open early for his guests. We are very pleased to let you know that we hosted two wonderful guests over the past four days. Mr Robert Vaughn and Ms. Melissa Errico McEnroe. What talented and lovely people. We thoroughly enjoyed being their home away from home and listening to them practice their lines for the upcoming film “Patrimony” which we understand is scheduled to be premiered at
the Sundance Film Festival next January. Read a Playbill story on the movie:
The major renovation of our cape cod bed & breakfast veranda is complete! We are starting to put the rockers and wicker furniture out for all guests to enjoy and it very tempting to take a break and just enjoy the beautiful spring weather. I can just imagine the original owners in their finery having afternoon tea enjoying the cape cod air and beautiful gardens.
One of the jobs we knew we had to do at our cape cod bed & breakfast was to clean the pink granite pillars at the entrance to the Inn. After some prep work and then a good power washing the granite looks fabulous. Below is a before and after picture for you to see.
