Happy Holidays to all. Enjoy the beautiful Heritage Museums and Gardens in Sandwich, Cape Cod as they are all dressed up for the holidays. This reminds me the wonderful lighting displays of Forest Park in Springfield, Massachusetts. The spirit of the holidays is present both inside the museum and on the grounds.

We are so fortunate to call Falmouth, Cape Cod home. Together with our fellow innkeepers in the Falmouth Bed and Breakfast Association we recently took the opportunity to showcase Falmouth and some of our associations beautiful bed and breakfast rooms, breakfasts, views, and things to do in the Better Way to Stay campaign spearheaded by the Professional Association of Innkeepers International.
The video shoot took place this past spring and the final product has now been created and lives on YouTube! We hope you enjoy this 56 second video trip to Falmouth (of course the shooting took place over a very full day…the magic of editing).

We are so happy to share that the long awaited marvelous new french bakery opened on Main Street in Falmouth!! Phone number 774-255-1855.
Boris Villatte, the 33 year old co-owner of PB Boulangerie & Bistro in Wellfleet had been looking to expand and we are so very fortunate that he chose our beautiful Falmouth Village.
The bakery will feature the same breads, croissants, cakes and quiches that they are known for in Wellfleet. To read more check out the article in IO Cape Cod (The insider’s guide to going out in Cape Cod) by clicking here.

While enjoying breakfast on the veranda yesterday our guests had the pleasure of seeing a majestic hawk sitting in a tree in the back gardens watching the activity at the Inn. After a mad dash for the camera we were able to capture this shot of our visitor. It may be the new baby doves or the baby rabbits that caught his attention. We are just brimming with wildlife See the hawk in the picture below sitting in the V of the branches in the center of the photo.

A good friend and recent guest at The Captain’s Manor Inn took a drive over to the Sydenstricker Glass Gallery in Brewster, Cape Cod to add to her collection. Lucky us she brought us a beautiful piece from the gallery that is pictured below. The colors and shape of the glass dish is exquisite.
For some history, in the mid 1960′s Bill Sydenstricker developed a new craft that was inspired by research he conducted while at MIT on early Egyptian art. This new glass design process involves taking two sheets of glass cut to fit a mold made of high fire terra cotta clay and the first sheet is decorated by sifting powdered colored glass through a stencil. The stencil is then removed and the second sheet of glass is placed over the decorated first piece. Then both are placed on a mold and put into a 1500 degree kiln for hours where the two pieces of glass fuse and lock in the colored design.
