Cape Cod Renovations

March 27th, 2016 by Trish Robinson

Cape Codย Renovations of some nature always seem to be on our agenda at The Captain’s Manor Inn. During this off season we tackled the plan of creating a two story suite. For a couple of years we had wanted to find a way toย incorporate the wonderful cupola on the top of the Innย as part of ย the Forbes guestroom. We could not be happier with the results. The project included moving a wall to include the original 1800’s staircase into the room so guests could head up to their private reading/tv room getaway.ย We were also able to enlarge the bedroom and upgrade from a Queen to a King bed. During the renovation process we even uncovered a piece of the original wallpaper. Our firsts guestsย said they feel like they are up in the trees and love the 360 degree views.ย  A two story suite in Cape Cod is a rarity and we have been excited to create this special romantic getaway.

We also decided to do some further renovation to the Tuscany guestroom. Just two years ago we enlarged the bathroom and made some other changes.ย ย We had not yet repainted the room in its entirety as there were a number of Tromp L’oeil murals in the room by a well known Romanian artist. After much deliberation we decided it was time to completely renovate the room. So we have repainted theย room, added new chairs, taken out a corner sink in the room and added a desk. Last but not least we changed the bed from aย iron King bed to a four poster King Cherry wood bed. We hope you enjoy the pictures of both projects below:
