The renovation of the Lawrence bathroom continues. This favorite room with its 12 foot ceilings and grand windows will soon have a new expanded bathroom maintaining old world charm with a beautiful kohler pedestal sink and a luxurious tile and corian 3 x 5 foot shower. The latest renovation pictures are below along with a brief video clip.
We are very happy to have begun the renovations to the Lawrence bathroom. The Lawrence room is so beautiful with 14 foot tall ceilings and lovely furnishings that it was crying out for that new bathroom and we just could not get to it before we opened for our first season last May. So we are busy working on it now. Or I should say Kevin is working and I am consulting
Some pictures of the work in process, mainly the demolition are below:

The major renovation of our cape cod bed & breakfast veranda is complete! We are starting to put the rockers and wicker furniture out for all guests to enjoy and it very tempting to take a break and just enjoy the beautiful spring weather. I can just imagine the original owners in their finery having afternoon tea enjoying the cape cod air and beautiful gardens.

Iced Tea or Lemonade anyone? Wood rocking chairs on southern side of veranda

See what year's of cape cod air had done to our bed & breakfast veranda floors before our renovation
One of the jobs we knew we had to do at our cape cod bed & breakfast was to clean the pink granite pillars at the entrance to the Inn. After some prep work and then a good power washing the granite looks fabulous. Below is a before and after picture for you to see.
The beautiful natural luster returns!
You can see the green mold being cleaned off.

As we prepare to open I am writing this blog to share interior pictures of the Inn and thank Carmen McNeil of Changes by Carmen for her interior decorating help. Carmen traveled from Western Massachusetts to provide consultation. No stranger to the Cape, she made the trip to be on-site providing consultation. I recommend her to any who are in the process of decorating a new space or revitalizing existing space. Her email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you also to Allen at Allen’s House of Flowers for the gorgeous flower arrangements he created for our photos for the new website that is under construction. He is busy doing our arrangements for our opening in May as well.
Lastly, thank you to our photographer, Christian Giannelli, for his great work in capturing the essence of the Inn in his photos. He will be back in early June to capture exterior shots of our cape cod bed & breakfast.

The other day I posted a copy of before and after pictures of the Lawrence room at our Cape Cod bed and breakfast. Today I wanted to share a before and after picture of the Living Room. After new paint, new carpets, new ceiling fans and new furniture we look forward to hosting our guests for an enjoyable and relaxing time in this beautiful living room at the Inn.

The Lawrence room is named after H.V. Lawrence who was a well known arborist in Cape Cod and is responsible for the beautiful and unique trees and shrubs on The Captain’s Manor Inn property. The room has recently undergone a significant renovation/redecoration and I am pleased to post a before and after picture for you to see.
During our spring yard cleaning today Kevin made a unique discovery. Perched in a back yard pine tree was a baby owl. We were able to snap some pictures …..Kevin Jr. was so daring as to climb a nearby tree at one point to snap a closeup.
How exciting…today we picked up the beautiful hand carved sign for the Inn done by local cape cod sign carver Anne Downs. It was a family affair to get the sign up and in position. Kevin and I plus son Kevin each had our job to do and after about 2o minutes we had success with the sign in place.
