Falmouth Historic Walk

August 28, 2014 by Trish Robinson

A Falmouth historic walk is enhanced this year with the beautiful ceramic birdhouses created by Falmouth High School students in collaboration with the Falmouth Museums on the Green.Falmouth High School Ceramic Birdhouses at Highfield Hall This is a self guided tour through historic Falmouth Village and 28 different homes have these unique birdhouses located in trees in their front yards. Each of the birdhouses was painstakingly created and inspired by architectural, cultural or historic significance of the particular house they selected.

The Captain’s Manor Inn is proud to be a part of this endeavor. We are listed as number 12 on the tour and are under the name of Mostly Hall. The Inn was dubbed Mostly Hall back in the 1800’s when a young man visiting the home with his mother said “look ma, it’s mostly hall” upon stepping into the grande entrance. The name became part of town lore and the house is actually on the National Historic Registry under the name of Mostly Hall.

We share some pictures below and a video of students who made a birdhouse: http://youtu.be/BoNLHNVH2OM

Cape Cod Hurricane Photos

March 12, 2014 by Trish Robinson

Cape Cod Hurricane Photos from 1944 were part of a number of recently discovered historic photos many featuring The Captain’s Manor Inn formerly known as Mostly Hall. We came across a number of very impressive photos while working with the Falmouth Historical Society and we are going to be doing a few postings so we can share with you a little bit of Falmouth history.

In this posting we are sharing pictures of some of the devastation on Cape Cod here at the Captain’s Manor Inn during the 1944 Hurricane. This storm carried winds peaking at 145 miles per hour and as a category 2 storm. Because the storm was so massive in both its size and intensity it was given the title the Great Atlantic Hurricane and it was the first storm to get a name by the National Hurricane Center then based in Miami and known as the Miami Hurricane Warning Office. One sad fact is that the storm was famous for sinking what was known as the lightship LV Vineyard Sound killing all 12 men who were on board.

Carriage House Construction

February 4, 2014 by Trish Robinson

The carriage house construction is well underway here at The Captain’s Manor Inn in beautiful Cape Cod. We are hopeful for an April 1 completion in line with the contract and yet it could be April Fools on us. That being said we are very much looking forward to completion of the Carriage House at which time Kevin and I will move over from the Inn to the Carriage House and the current apartment in the Inn will become available for an Assistant Innkeeper that we plan to hire this Spring.

The carriage house doors have been crafted to look authentic and we are in the process of looking for antique hinge hardware to finish them off. We made a trip to New Bedford to the Salvage Warehouse where they have incredible artifacts from old houses, barns and buildings that have either been demolished or remodeled. We have not found the hardware yet but we keep looking. Take a look at where we are now and how we got there.Carriage House Construction Progress

Carriage House Construction

November 11, 2013 by insideout

As many of you know,Kevin loves his construction projects so you can imagine he is very happy to have broken ground for our new carriage house innkeepers quarters.

Just this past week the contractors arrived.ย  On day one two evergreens by the garage were relocated to the back yard near the gazebo and the demolition of the garage was done.ย ย  By the end of the week the excavation for the new foundation was complete.ย  During the excavation a 1914 Massachusetts license plate was unearthed…..How fun!1914 Mass license plate

The beginning of this week the foundation will be staked and the concrete forms set and the hope is that the foundation will have been poured by Thursday or Friday.

Hope you enjoy some picturesย  below:

Hawk sighting | Falmouth Cape Cod

August 2, 2012 by insideout

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.ย  After a mad dash for the camera we were able to capture this shot of our visitor.ย  It may be the new baby doves or the baby rabbits that caught his attention.ย  We are just brimming with wildlife ๐Ÿ™‚ย ย ย  See the hawk in the picture below sitting in the V of the branches in the center of the photo.
