Just 3 miles down the road from The Captain’s Manor Inn in Falmouth is the Woods Hole Science Aquarium which has two new exciting exhibits. “Sounds of the Sea” features whale and other marine animal sounds in an interactive display and “Albatross: A Legacy of Research” features the 46 year career of the 187 foot research vessel Albatross IV. Albatross IV sailed from Woods Hole from 1962 until its retirement and decommissioning in 2008. The display includes many items including three main panels each with a video display above highlighing the seafarers, the ship itself and the science it accomplished.
The Aquarium is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 AM to 4 PM. Admission is free, but donations are accepted.

On your next visit to The Captain’s Manor Inn bed and breakfast, we highly encourage you to visit Highfield Hall and see one of their newest visions come to life!!! After much research and work the Sunken Garden is available to view and enjoy. In its focal location, it is the most visible garden on the property and the one that will be most closely returned to its original historical appearance. For more information go to the Highfield Hall website and read about the full master plan by clicking here. See my photo as taken on my trusty Iphone below.

Date night out! We headed down to Woods Hole for the 20th anniversary of the Woods Hole Film Festival and stopped off at Shuckers for a meal of Sea Food Chowda, Crab Cakes, etc. Started off eating on the barge but seeing as I get seasick (apparently with even the slightest motion) Kevin suggested we head into the stationary porch overlooking the barge. (Smart move ) After dinner we headed over to Jimmy’s for some great frozen yogurt – black raspberry with chocolate chips. Then on to see the Woods Hole Film Festival Short Film collage which included:

Many of our guests at The Captain’s Manor Inn enjoy the outdoors during their time in Falmouth, Cape Cod. Outdoor activities include hiking spots such as Beebe Woods or Spohr Gardens, biking on the Shining Sea bikeway, walking the village main street, swimming over at Surf Drive beach and kayaking. Cape Cod Kayak located in the village of Cataumet in Falmouth has been a favorite of our guests in terms of equipment rentals and tours. So next time you visit perhaps you might like to try a new outdoor adventure and head over to Cape Cod Kayak to see some of our beautiful seashore from a new angle.

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.
