The weather has been beautiful the past couple of days here at The Captain’s Manor Inn which is helping us to get some important outdoor work completed on the new construction. The finishing touches are being done on the new main entrance stairs to the veranda and Kevin has been very busy creating the new brick patio at the base of the stair entrance. Needless to say his back and knees are a bit sore!
Hope you enjoy these pictures of the progess.
Spring is right around the corner….Really… What a wonderful time to visit Cape Cod and enjoy all there is to offer before the crowds of summer arrive. Your getaway package includes: simply elegant accomodations, full breakfast, a complimentary bottle of wine and a flower bouquet from Allen’s House of Flowers in Falmouth Village.
Highfield Hall is a magnificent restored mansion first built in 1878 and almost lost after decades of neglect. Following an $8 million restoration effort the home is a wonder to tour. In 2011 restoration of the sunken victorian gardens were completed and are a delight to behold.

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.
