Fall in Love with the Cape

August 25th, 2015 by Trish Robinson


th9Fall in love with the Cape this autumn and experience all of the wonderful seasonal activities this vacation destination has to offer. After the hot days of summer fade into the cool crisp days of fall, a new kind of beauty emerges on the oceanfront landscape. Where there were once crowds of beach goers, there are now quiet miles of coast – the perfect place for an evening stroll with a warm sweatshirt. Here are our suggestions for making the most of our favorite season on the Cape:

Fall Foliage Tours

Whether you travel by bike, by kayak, or on foot, the bright amber hues simply cannot be missed.

By Bike

th2The Shining Sea Bike Path spans 10.7 miles from North Falmouth to Woods Hole. You will pass through picturesque cranberry bogs,  inlets with amazing wildlife, and beautiful wooded areas all while winding around the Vineyard Sound shoreline. The path ends in Woods Hole, the perfect place to stop and grab some lunch to fuel up for your ride back.

By Kayak

Whether you rent a kayak for a few hours and head out on your own, or sign up for a th3sunset tour – kayaking is one of the best ways to see the hidden inlets and marshes of the Cape. Nothing compares to the serene environment of being out on the water where the only noise audible is the sound your paddle makes as it glides through the water.

On Foot

Cape Cod is home to some of the most beautiful nature walks, and the gorgeous colors of the fall foliage enhance the experience that much more. Beebe Woods at Highfield Hall and Gardens is just one of the many beautiful places to enjoy the fall by foot. Home to the “punch bowl” (a picturesque pond that lies deep within the woods), Beebe Woods has a trail for everyone.

Fall Harvest

Roll up your sleeves and get into the spirit at a local farm this fall and enjoy the beautiful bounty of the season!

Pumpkin Picking

Coonamessett Farm is a 20 acre farming and research enterprise and they invite you t7hto get a day pass to pick your own pumpkin at for only $8!

Apple Picking

Peachtree Circle Farm is run by a husband and wife team and founded in 1990. Spend the day wandering their 7 acre farm and leave with some sweet treats!

Cider Tasting

Falmouth Wine and Sprits hosts fall cider tastings each Saturday afternoon. Sample some new ciders, compare the classics, and enjoy some delicious doughnuts! Feel free to purchase some cider and enjoy it on the veranda back at the inn – Falmouth Wine and Spirits is a short walk away!

Haunted House Tours

Fall simply wouldn’t be complete without a little spookiness!

Barnstable Village Haunted House Tour

Walk the historic Old Kings Highway in Barnstable Village and hear stories of the IMG_0654small quaint town. There are over ten stops and eight ghost stories will be told. You will visit Cobb’s Hill Cemetery where many strange and unusual things have taken place. You’ll visit places like the Barnstable Tavern & Restaurant where a mischievous specter lurks in the dining room. The tour ends in the old jail built in 1690.

Haunted Hayride

Tony Andrews Farm is home to the ‘Harvest of Horrors,’ one of Cape Cod’s most frightful hayrides! Guests first board a tram which brings them to the entrance of the haunted forest where the guests are then split into small groups as they enter. The winding outdoor path is a 1/4 mile long and not for the faint of heart!

However you choose to enjoy the fall season here on the Cape, you will certainly not be at a loss for things to do. Falmouth is centrally located, and offers so much do right here in the village.



The Woods Hole Film Festival

July 16th, 2015 by Trish Robinson


firestation_pic1The Woods Hole Film Festival is the oldest film festival on Cape Cod and the Islands and is celebrating its 24th year this summer. Independent and emerging filmmakers will come together and premier over 100 films and 8 short programs. Programs include workshops, master classes, panel discussions and parties complete with live music. Spotlighting the history and beauty of this region is a goal of the Woods Hole Film Festival and those films that feature or have a connection to the Cape or the surrounding New England geography will be especially highlighted. Another way the festival honors the beauty of the area is through their venue choices. From the Old Woods Hole Fire Station, to iconic restaurants and landmarks, you’ll watch these films and attend accompanying events in some of the most loved buildings in town. This year, in addition to the Woods Hole locations, Falmouth Academy as well as Falmouth Cinema Pub will also be featuring films.

Opening night will feature Maya Forbes‘ (Cambridge, MA native) directorial debut “Infinitely Polar Bear” which features Mark Ruffalo and Zoe Saldana. Other highlights are expected to be Richard Ray Perez‘ film “Cesar’s Last Fast,” a documentary chronicling Cesar Chavez’ struggle to secure humane and fair treatment for America’s farmers; and Sally Taylor‘s, (daughter of James Taylor and Carly Simon) presentation of her documentary. Preparation for Taylor’s documentary “Consenses” began when she asked 150 artists over the span of two years to interpret each other’s work and share their reactions. The documentary reveals those reactions and evolves into a greater conversation about human reaction and the understanding of art as it pertains to the individual.

There will be multiple events each day, and tickets are available online through Woods Hole Film Fesitval’s website. This is a highly anticipated and extremely well attended event each year and 2015 promises to deliver!




Chocolate Covered Coconut Macaroons

June 29th, 2015 by Trish Robinson

Chocolate Covered Coconut Macaroons are a great afternoon goodie to enjoy here at the Inn.

Chocolate Covered Coconut MacaroonsThe recipe is fairly simple with only a few key ingredients.

We hope you enjoy the recipe.
Servings: 2 dozen macaroons
Prep Time: 20 Minutes
Cook Time: 25 Minutes
Total Time: 45 Minutes


• One 14-ounce bag sweetened shredded coconut (such as Baker’s Angel Flake)
• 7/8 cup (a scant cup) sweetened condensed milk
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 2 large eggs whites
• 1/4 teaspoon salt
• 4 ounces semi-sweet chocolate or dark chocolate – best quality such as Ghirardelli (We use local chocolate at Ghelfi’s on Main Street)


1. Preheat the oven to 325°F. Set oven racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a medium bowl, mix together the shredded coconut, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract then set aside.
3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the egg whites and salt until stiff peaks form.
4. Use a large rubber spatula to fold the egg whites into the coconut mixture.
5. Using two spoons, form heaping tablespoons of the mixture into mounds on the prepared baking sheets, spacing about 1 inch apart.
6. Bake for about 25 minutes, until the tops are lightly golden and the bottoms and edges are deeply golden.
7. If dipping the macaroons in chocolate, we melt the chocolate in a double boiler over simmering water. If you do not have a double boiler you can melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl at medium power, stopping and stirring at 30 second intervals, until just smooth and creamy.
8. Dip the tops of the macaroons in the chocolate, letting any excess drip back into the bowl, and return to the lined baking sheets. Place the macaroons in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to allow the chocolate to set.

Cape Chic a Cape Cod Boutique Women’s Shop

May 6th, 2015 by Trish Robinson


Cape Chic a Cape Cod boutique women’s shop is located at 104 Palmer Avenue in the Queens Buyway shopping venue of Falmouth Village. Cape Chic womens clothing in Cape Cod
Year Established – Cape Chic was established in April of 2013 by Sandy Mullins.
The story behind the name/logo – Sandy wanted to communicate that her boutique shop would offer chic styling but also that the fashions offered would be casual, comfortable and relaxed for a coastal area. The chic being an easy stylish feel vs. a casual sporty feel. Sandy shared that she wanted customers to enjoy casual comfort while having fun with fashion too.
The logo is very interesting because Sandy held an online tournament to create her logo. She did not know any local artists so by using the tournament she had people from all over the world compete to design her logo. The final logo selected was done by an artist in Italy. The tournament process includes typing up a brief for the artists and then an email blast will go out to designers and you provide a cash prize for the selected winner. The coloring for the logo and store interior was already in her mind from a visit she had made to a vineyard tasting room in Oregon years earlier. The color scheme is beachy, fun, happy but not blue as so many other beach destinations use.
Why This Dream – Sandy had dreamed of this type of a shop since she was a little girl but never really thought of it seriously until she grew up in market research, marketing and brand management in the corporate world. Sandy says that as a brand manager you act a bit like a CEO for the brand you are working on. You lead a number of different departments when you are a brand manager including finance, product development, and information technology so Sandy felt that the broad background in managing those areas and her consumer research background and passion for fashion gave her the background to start her own women’s boutique venture here in Cape Cod.
Sandy loves the ocean so she looked at coastal Connecticut and Cape Cod as she selected a final location. Being from Massachusetts, Falmouth became the choice because of Famouth Village and the Main Street walkable community that is thriving. She loved the small town, unique, boutique feel and felt the culture was wonderful in Falmouth Village with events like the JazzFest and all the wonderful restaurants.

Cape Chic interior photo CapeChicinterior1
Fan Favorite Items – One of the top fan favorites would be the Nally & Millie apparel. The fabric feel is very comfortable, travels well and the style is figure flattering with fun colorful prints and a great price point for the customer. The jewelry is a very popular accessory selection in Cape Chic. She gets most of her jewelry from New York but also some from Atlanta and the West Coast.
Unique Offering – Coastal Casual Chic is her store tagline. She strives to offer a bit more contemporary feel than some other Cape Cod boutique shops.
Another fan favorite that is unique to Cape Chic in the area are the Jag jeans that Sandy carries. These are a popular pull on jean that are very comfortable and look stylish with an untucked top style that women are wearing and they have still have a full jean look.
Interesting Trivia – Sandy brings her international brand marketing experience to her boutique. She lived in the UK for some time and conducted market research in Germany, Italy, France, and Sweden.
General Information – Cape Chic is open year round with summer hours daily of 10-6. Winter hours are Wednesday – Friday 10-6 and on Sunday from 12-5.

Best New Cape Cod Restaurant

March 15th, 2015 by Trish Robinson

exterior for blog featured image

Best new cape cod restaurant in 2014 was bestowed on Quicks Hole Tavern by Cape Cod Magazine. This is a great new hotspot for our guests at The Captain’s Manor Inn or for anyone visiting the Falmouth area.  The owners are major proponents of the Farm to Table movement so you can be assured of fabulous fresh and delicious entrees.

Quicks Hole Tavern Lunch & Dinner Hotspot

Lunch & Dinner Hotspot


Year Established


Quicks Hole Tavern was established in 2014 when the team behind Quicks Hole Taqueria (a summer place next door) looked to open a year-round restaurant in Woods Hole. Taking over the space formerly known as the “Leeside,” owner Beth Colt renovated and upgraded the kitchen before opening in March offering lunch and dinner seven days a week year-round. Her partner of five years, Chef Stephanie Mikolazyk, pulled together a killer team in the kitchen, and next thing you know there was a line out the door.

Unique Location


The Quicks Hole Tavern is a three story building located right on the waterfront in Woods Hole, next door to the Steamship Authority ferry to Martha’s Vineyard. The dining rooms feel like a ship, with sails adorning the ceilings, arresting black and white photos of old Woods Hole on the walls and great water views of the busy ferry terminal and Woods Hole harbor beyond.

The story behind the name/logo


Quicks Hole is a passage between the islands much like Woods Hole, just a few miles west between the Elizabeth Islands. The original Quicks Hole is a remote spot, great for fishing, and the preferred passage for the fishing vessels of New Bedford as they head out for the catch. Quicks Hole Tavern is dedicated to local sourcing, but Colt also liked that the word Quick was in the name, as the ferry crowd is often in a rush.Quicks Hole Logo

The horseshoe crab in the logo for Quicks Hole is a tip of the hat to Woods Hole history – scientists here discovered that this crab’s blood was precious as a tester for human blood purity, and blue horseshoe crab blood is now harvested and used in blood banks around the globe for that purpose.

Quicks Hole Open Kitchen

Fan Lunch Favorite


The most popular lunch item is the “MBL-t” a Mahi, Bacon, Lettuce and Tomato sandwich on artisan bread from Pain D’Avignon in Hyannis that makes reference to the Marine Biological Lab (“MBL”) one of the famous science institutions that dominate the Woods Hole waterfront. Another favorite is the Angus Burger, smothered with grilled onions, peppered bacon and Grafton cheddar. There are seasonal salads with delightful dressings and a choice of proteins like steak, scallops, salmon and more.

Unique Offering

The Tavern is best known for it’s “Pig Candy” appetizer, a roasted pork shoulder drizzled in maple syrup, cayenne pepper and a garnish of fresh celery sprouts. It’s totally addictive.

Delicious Burger!

Delicious Burger!

The Lobster Croissant (available in summer) is probably the most popular item, with fresh local lobster meat lightly tossed in mayonnaise, lemon and basil served on a freshly baked croissant with choice of green salad or fries.

Live Music


Woods Hole has a busy music scene, and the first floor pub at Quicks Hole Tavern has become one of the places to see interesting jazz, folk and blues. Luke Vose of Crooked Coast plays Thursday evenings, and Ben Patterson performs acoustic on Saturdays, both with no cover. Joe Sutton Band also plays occasionally.

Interesting Trivia


Cape Cod Magazine named Quicks Hole Tavern one of the best new restaurants on Cape Cod in 2014.

On Urbanspoon (a popular review app), Quicks Hole Tavern is number two in the category “Hottest on Cape Cod” which includes all of Cape Cod.


The Pickle Jar Kitchen

Pickle Jar Kitchen

The Pickle Jar Kitchen in Falmouth Village Cape Cod is a favorite restaurant of ours and our guests and we are thrilled to share some information and stories about this special locally owned and run restaurant.

Pickle Jar Kitchen Chalkboard of Info

Year Established


The Pickle Jar Kitchen opened its doors on February 6, 2013. The local residents who own and run the restaurant are Benjamin and Cassandra Gallant and Elisabeth and Kevin Lay. A fun bit of background is that Benjamin, Elisabeth and Kevin went to school together at Johnson and Wales Culinary University in Providence Rhode Island. The restaurant is definitely kid friendly and you will often see the owners children visiting in the early morning before heading off to school.

pickle jar kitchen logo


The story behind the name/logo


This group of good friends had been thinking about doing a restaurant together for some time. The space known to many townies as the previous “Laureens” restaurant became available on Main Street shortly after another spot was scooped up and this friendship based venture was meant to be in its current location. The space leasing came together and they were literally going to open in a month and the friends said “okay what are we going to call this restaurant”. The brainstorming began and since they had been active picklers for sometime, including pickling their garden vegetables, it made sense to incorporate that into the name of the restaurant and the menu offerings. During the brainstorming Pickle just kept coming up in names such as Pickle Barrel and they settled on The Pickle Jar Kitchen. Kevin created the actual logo.

Pickle Jar Kitchen Bar

Fan Lunch Favorite


Many of the “Specialty Sammiches” are very popular and include ingredients such as special spice blends they have created. The most popular sammich is “The Firehouse” which features smoked chili rubbed boneless pork, their very own home made pickled carrots, smoked cheddar and BBQ sauce on a toasty house roll. The next most popular is The Village Green which includes yogurt and herb marinated chicken, boursin cheese, baby arugula, sprouts, cucumber, drizzled with their own dill aioli and served on toasted Sourdough.

Pickle Jar Kitchen Candy Bags


Unique Offering


They have a number of vegetarian and gluten free offerings.
The tofu salad is probably the most popular and consists of a lightly dusted and fried tofu served with pea shoots, cucumbers, edamame beans, & mixed artisan lettuces, drizzled with ginger miso vinaigrette and topped with pickled red onions.


Interesting Trivia


The first year they were open they entered the Chili Fest at the Cotuit Center for the Arts and Won! Interestingly the chili is not even an offering on the menu.

Coconut CupCakes

Coconut Cup Cakes


Lis is a master baker and owner of Butterqueen Cakes. The best selling baked goodie at The Pickle Jar Kitchen would be the Coconut Cup Cakes.


The Specialty Sammiches have great Falmouth names such as Road Race Roll, Nobska Light, and The Town Hall.

Cape Cod’s Best Bed and Breakfasts

March 1st, 2015 by Trish Robinson

Cape Cod’s Best Bed and Breakfasts were recently identified by the Travel Channel. There are over 250 bed and breakfasts throughout Cape Cod. The Travel Channel article by Christopher Setterlund identified the top ten spanning from Upper Cape Cod through Mid Cape and Lower Cape Cod out to Outer Cape Cod. As members of the Cape Cod Chamber we are very familiar with the wonderful hosts and properties that the Travel Channel identified. Read on to learn a bit about these top ten bed and breakfasts.

The Captain’s Manor Inn is honored to be one of these top ten Cape Cod’s bed and breakfasts and the only one located in Upper Cape. Located in Falmouth Village, guests love the ability to park the car and stroll to the many boutique shops, restaurants, museums and beaches. Enjoy the Shining Sea bike path and the many walkable gardens and museums in town or perhaps a game of golf, fishing, kayaking, or sunset cruises are on your list. Explore our day trips page for ideas ranging from day tripping to Martha’s Vineyard to sailing off for a whale watch.

cape cod's best bed and breakfasts map of cape cod region We are also thrilled that The Platinum Pebble Boutique Inn is named as one of the top ten Cape Cod bed and brebookbutton5akfasts by the Travel Channel. In 2014 The Captain’s Manor Inn partnered with The Platinum Pebble to offer our 2 for 1 package that has been extremely popular with our international guests and our domestic guests. We essentially ease the planning of your Cape Cod vacation by creating a week long package where you spend 3 days at each of our two Inns and during your stay you will day trip to Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket, Heritage Museums and Gardens, plus enjoy a Whale Watch adventure and bike the Shining Sea Bikeway and the Cape Cod Rail Trail. All your ferry and admission tickets are included as part of the package. By staying at The Captain’s Manor Inn in Upper Cape Cod (near Martha’s Vineyard) and Lower Cape Cod (near Nantucket Island) guests of the 2 for 1 package essentially see all of Cape Cod and the Islands during their week long stay.

The other lovely bed and breakfasts named by the Travel Channel span from Mid Cape to Outer Cape.

In the Mid Cape you will find Captain David Kelly House located in Centerville. Rick and Tom have been welcoming guests to their bed and breakfast since 2009. Their breakfasts are entertaining and delicious. One of our favorite places to enjoy while in Centerville is the renowned Four Seas Ice Cream which is not far from Craigville beach.

Another wonderful bed and breakfast in Mid Cape is Liberty Hill Inn which is located in Yarmouth Port. The Inn is set back from historic route 6A on a little hill. It is always great fun to drive Route 6A and enjoy the many unique antique shops along the route and view beautiful historic Cape Cod homes.

A third bed and breakfast in Mid Cape honored in the Travel Channel top ten Cape Cod bed and breakfasts is the Lamb & Lion located in Barnstable. Ali and Tom have exceptional hospitality experience and their Lamb & Lion Inn is located along the scenic and historic 6A and is a renowned pet friendly bed and breakfast.

As you travel east in Cape Cod you will now move from Mid Cape to Lower Cape Cod. In addition to The Platinum Pebble Boutique Inn there are 3 other Lower Cape Cod bed and breakfasts honored by the Travel Channel in their Cape Cod’s Best Bed and Breakfasts selection for 2015.

First we travel to the Old Harbor Inn in Chatham Cape Cod.  Chatham is a quintessential Cape Cod town with a walkable village style center. Some of the favorite spots we like to visit in Chatham are the working Fish Pier and the Chatham Lighthouse Beach and Lighthouse.

Next as you traverse the Lower Cape would be Brewster by The Sea Inn and Spa located in the historic Sea Captain’s town of Brewster. A thoroughly enjoyable activity to undertake in Brewster is to bike along the Rail to Trail Bike path which spans 22 miles through Dennis in Lower Cape Cod to Wellsfleet in  Outer Cape Cod. After your bike extravaganza you can enjoy a treatment in Brewster by the Sea Inn and Spa’s fully licensed Spa.

Another of the top bed and breakfasts as noted by the Travel Channel in Lower Cape Cod is A Little Inn on Pleasant Bay. This Orleans Bed & Breakfast sits between the historic villages of Chatham & Orleans right at what many refer to as the “elbow” of Cape Cod. Located on Pleasant Bay in Orleans the Inn has beautiful water views and a small beach as well as a dock.

We now leave the Lower Cape to head to the Outer Cape. There are two remaining Bed and Breakfasts to talk about in the Travel Channel designation of top ten Cape Cod bed and breakfasts. These two bed and breakfasts are located in Eastham and Provincetown.

In Eastham you will find the Whalewalk Inn and Spa.The property was originally built in 1830 for a renowned whaling captain and was subsequently a farm before it was purchased and turned into a bed and breakfast in 1953. A highlight of the marshes and open waters that surround Eastham is that they provide some of the best kayaking and canoeing on the Cape.

A short 10 minute drive from the Whalewalk Inn on the way towards the Outer Cape is the famous National Seashore. The Cape Cod National Seashore was created on August 7, 1961 by President John F. Kennedy. This national treasure encompasses over 43,000 acres on the Atlantic Ocean side of Cape Cod and in addition to beachfront includes ponds and woods.

Last but not least is the 8 Dyer Hotel bed and breakfast in Provincetown. Brandon and Steve are your hosts at this beautiful and intimate bed and breakfast located in walking distance of such landmarks as the Pilgrim Monument and the Provincetown Art Association and Museum. It is also just a short walk to the famous Provincetown Commercial Street. Brandon is a chef trained at the Culinary Institute of America so you can expect a yummy breakfast.

We hope you have the chance to visit several of Cape Cod’s best bed and breakfasts.
