As the winter continues to be mild we are VERY thankful. The exterior walls of the Inn have been opened into the new addition as the framing of interior walls, rough in plumbing and rough in electrical begins. Needless to say it is quite dusty and drafty, we can just imagine how cold it would be if it were a typical winter:)
Thought you might enjoy some pictures showing the breakthrough and also some of the new rooms being framed out.
We are very pleased that as part of our Inn expansion we will be adding a wonderful piece of art to the Canopy room. The Captain’s Manor Inn has wonderful original windows with plantation shutters that we have worked hard to maintain as we renovate and add on to the property. In the Canopy room we are in the process of taking out the old bathroom and an old closet and that space will now become part of the living area of the bedroom. We are also adding on a new bathroom which will feature custom tile work and a large 5 x 4 foot shower. To do this work we are adding to the back of the room and we have decided to keep the old window and plantation shutter but to create a work of art highlighted within the window as specialized in by Robin Pearson. We will keep you posted on the progress but in the meantime here are some pictures what has been taken out and some initial work by Robin as well as an example of her work from another project. Enjoy.
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.
After selecting your room you can add the
“April Showers bring May Flowers Package” to your guestroom at check out.
During your stay in Falmouth enjoy beautiful Spohr Gardens where Daffodil Days are celebrated during the last two weekends of April when thousands of flowers are in bloom in the gardens and on the banks of oyster pond. Watch a brief panoramic video of one section of the gardens by oyster pond :
We are excited to let you know that we have created a google plus page for The Captain’s Manor Inn. We are looking forward to adding people and businesses to our circles as others join the google + application. So far some videos and pictures have been added to our page and more to come.
Now things are really getting exciting!!! The weather continues to cooperate so that today the roof is being shingled and the windows are going in. It is so hard to believe that we are enjoying 50 + degree weather in Falmouth Cape Cod as we enter the second week of January. Certainly some would say global warming and others just chalk it up to crazy New England weather. Now that the addition is starting to be closed in it builds our confidence that we will keep the project on track. The other good thing is that we can avoid the crazy flood we experienced a couple of weeks ago when the rain came pouring down right into the 1st floor kitchen/pantry through the antique window because the drainpipe was removed where the new addition abuts the house. YIKES!!
I thought you might appreciate seeing the video of the little window waterfall and the new windows and roofing activity.
Today we have the trench dug, the new electrical 400 amp service wiring in the ground and the trench already filled in. Almost like nothing happened
The big work has begun with the demolition of the common bathroom on the second floor and the elimination of the back of the wraparound veranda where the new addition and new verandah will go at The Captain’s Manor Inn in Falmouth, Ma. Enjoy the pictures!!
The remodeling of the Canopy room at The Captain’s Manor Inn has begun with the demolition of one of the closets in the room and the bathroom. A new expansive bathroom will be added onto the Canopy room as part of the broader expansion and renovation of the Inn. Below are some pictures showing the work in progress.
Stay tuned for blog updates and we hope to have a webcam in place later in October to show the work in progress on the exterior of the Inn. We look forward to sharing all of our updated accomodations news from here in wonderful Falmouth, Ma.
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!
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.
