Murder at the Mansion, Highfield Hall, Falmouth Ma

February 26, 2011 by insideout

If you like murder mysteries we suggest you attend a special event on May 14th at the Highfield Hall Mansion in Falmouth, Ma. while enjoying a respite at our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast, The Captain’s Manor Inn.ย  You will experience what Highfield Hall is referring to as Musical Mayhem. In the midst of music from Robert Wyatt, a murder occurs. Who did it? The killer must be stopped and it’s up to you to find the clues. Wonderful Hors d’ouevres from the Casual Gourmet and a cash bar will complement the event.
We are personally looking forward to this special event and I am taking Mom for her birthday. We hope you join in the fun.

Be sure to make Reservations early for your Guestroom at THE CAPTAIN’S MANOR INN

Old Whaling Church Edgartown, Martha’s Vineyard

February 23, 2011 by insideout

Many of our guests love to visit Martha’s Vineyard for a day during their stay at our Cape Cod bed and breakfast.ย ย  This week we learned of some work being done at the Old Whaling Church in Edgartown that we thought we would share. ย  A couple of weeks ago a crane was brought in and the Main Street area around the Church in Edgartown was closed for three hours in order to remove the 1,500-pound bronze bell from the tower of the Old Whaling Church and send it in for repair.

This is the first time the bell, cast in 1843 in the Boston foundry of Henry N. Cooper & Co., has been down from the tower.

The plan is to have the bell back in place and chiming the hours in Edgartown before Memorial Day.
