This year’s festival promises to be another great event. Stay at The Captain’s Manor Inn and venture down to the many events at the Woods Hole Film Festival from 07/30/11 until 08/06/11. We are especially happy to share that Patrimony will be showing on August 3rd, 2011 at 7pm. Many of you may recall that we were privileged to have the stars of the movie – Robert Vaughn and Melissa Errico stay at The Captain’s Manor Inn during the filming of Patrimony back in May of 2010. Congratulations to Don Marcus, director, and his team – the film was awarded an Indie Soul Special Recognition Award at the Boston International Film Festival!

For a couple of weeks in late June and early July, over 14,000 lavender plants at Cape Cod Lavender Farm burst into purple bloom. Come stay at The Captain’s Manor Inn and venture off to visit this beautiful spot. The farm is on 20 secluded acres, and surrounded by 60 acres of conservation land. We have had guests who want to take a day trip to Chatham or Provincetown, make the farm a stop on the way to those towns or on the way back to our Falmouth Cape Cod bed and breakfast.
The Cape Cod Lavender Farm is one of only two such farms in Massachusetts — the other is located in Franklin County and is a smaller lavender farm. “Lavender tourism” started in the late 1990s in the United States.
Some of the products sold at the Lavender Farm include lavender chocolate ($2.75), lavender shortbread ($8.25) and lavender-lemon marmalade ($8) a jar, lavender soap ($7.50 a bar), hand cream ($7.50), candles ($18), herbes de Provence — a mixture of herbs for cooking sold for $14.95 for eight ounces — and the fresh and dried bunches, $10, and buds, $12 for a half-pound bag.
Just across from The Captain’s Manor Inn is the Falmouth Historic Society on the Falmouth Village Green. One of the favorite pastimes for visitors is the free 90 minute guided walk past Falmouth’s historic homes and places. The walk begins at 10 am starting May 31 and every Tuesday throughout the summer.
One of our guests from Canada last summer took some wonderful pictures of the Museums on the Green and their gardens that are shown below:
The walk starts and ends at the Hallett Barn Visitor’s Center on the grounds of the Falmouth Museums on the Green, 55 Palmer Ave.
Arts Alive is a free three-day arts festival full of events and activities right here in Falmouth, Ma in Cape Cod.
The festival runs from June 17th through June 19th.
Each year seems to get bigger and better. This year there are over 50 performances of Music, Dance, Theater and Film scheduled and over 50 Arts and Crafts Vendors on site just down the street from The Captain’s Manor Inn.
This Saturday, June 11, Highfield Hall will present “Glories of the Garden: A Day of Inspiration for Gardeners.”

The event is expected to be very popular and will include expert advice from Cindy Brockway, Landscape Preservationist and Landscape Designer and John Forti, Curator, Historic Gardens and Landscapes, Strawberry Bank Museum The Herbalist’s Garden that you can apply to your own gardens.
