What a wonderful event ! The 2011 Jazzfest in Falmouth ran from September 20th until October 2nd. My personal favorite part was the Jazz Stroll on Friday, September 30 th from 6-10pm. This free event included 12 different groups performing at various indoor and outdoor venues at Queen’s Buyway and along Main Street. The picture below is of the group Rosemary Ramos Trio who played at Bojangles retail store just around the corner from The Captain’s Manor Inn. What a talented young group of people!

One of the reasons we purchased The Captain’s Manor Inn in Falmouth Ma. after looking at Inn properties throughout the East coast was the beauty of Cape Cod and how many things there are to do on the Cape or nearby. One great example is the Newport Jazz Festival seeing as Newport is only an hour and ten minutes from The Captain’s Manor Inn in Falmouth Cape Cod.
Why not attend the Newport Jazz Festival on August 5th, 6th and 7th and after the festivities on Sunday head to Falmouth and plan a respite at The Captain’s Manor Inn enjoying all there is to offer in Falmouth. While here we encourage you to plan a day trip to Martha’s Vineyard. Start early with a full breakfast at 8am at the Inn and then head over to the ferry for your 45 minutes trip to Martha’s Vineyard. Enjoy a day of exploration on the Vineyard then take the ferry back and plan on a wine/cheese platter at our Inn before going out to dinner at one of the fine restaurants in walking distance from the Inn.
Just a short stroll from our bed and breakfast accomodations at The Captain’s Manor Inn is lovely Falmouth Village. This year’s arts and crafts street festival on July 13th in Falmouth Village Cape Cod was fantastic. It was a hot summer day and thousands of people came to enjoy the beautiful handcrafted items and to see many of the artisans performing their craft work. Main Street in Falmouth was closed down as they do each year for the festival. The Falmouth Village shops and restaurants on main street participate in the big day and many set up tables outside their shops and restaurants with great merchandise or nice ice cold water and other snacks.
Pictures of a couple of our favorite artisan booths are shown below.
The beauty of Cape Cod is how much there is to do on the Cape or nearby. For example, Newport is only an hour a ten minutes from The Captain’s Manor Inn in Falmouth Cape Cod.
Why not attend the Newport Folk Festival on July 30th and July 31st and after the festivities on Sunday head to Falmouth and plan to stay a couple of days at The Captain’s Manor Inn enjoying all there is to offer in Falmouth. You could even plan a day trip to Martha’s Vineyard. Come on down to breakfast early say at 8 and then head over to the ferry for your 45 minutes trip to Martha’s Vineyard. Spend the day exploring all there is to see on the Vineyard then take the ferry back and plan on a wine/cheese platter at our Inn before going out to dinner at one of the fine restaurants in walking distance from the Inn.
We hope to see you soon.
