Stress relief is a weekend away when you book at The Captain’s Manor Inn! Perhaps it’s the long, cold winter that’s gotten you down? Maybe it’s the never-ending to-do list, or the long hours atwork; regardless of where your stress is coming from, we’ve got the solution to get rid of it! Are you coming in from the city? Then we suggest you bypass the stress of driving, and take the Peter Pan Bus line from Boston or Providence. Your relaxing weekend can begin with the opportunity to dive into that novel you’ve been meaning to read, or catch up with friends and family on social media, all while you’re in transit to beautiful Cape Cod. The best part about the Peter Pan Bus? Your destination is a short walk away from the inn! Of course if walking isn’t your idea of relaxation, you could take a taxi or an Uber, but you might enjoy stretching your legs and taking in the sights on your walk to relaxation!
Once you arrive at the Inn, any remaining stress from the city will melt away the second you enter. In addition to complimentary gourmet breakfast, afternoon snack and round the clock access to beverages, you’ll receive a bottle of wine and gourmet chocolates from Ghelfi’s Candies of Cape Cod that you can enjoy in a number of relaxing locations at the Inn. Enjoy your wine on the porch, bistro, or dining room or perhaps you’d rather recline on a lounge chair on the acre plus of serene, private grounds.
When you choose the solo stress relief package, you’ll be able to choose between a reflexology or massage treatment. Both reflexology and massage are ancient relaxation and stress relief traditions that have withstood the test of time. An ancient Japanese belief is that the body and mind are interconnected and one cannot be completely relaxed if the other is not. Either of these two treatments will simultaneously relax your body, and your mind.
Spend your day doing whatever it is that relaxes you. Perhaps you’d like to stroll down to Eight Cousins, our locally owned and operated book shop and choose a new book? You can take your book to the park or beach and get lost in the pages. Didn’t bring a beach chair or a towel? No problem! Simply borrow one from the Inn!
If your idea of relaxing is fine dining, then you have certainly come to the right place. Steps away from the Inn are the best restaurants in Falmouth. Whether you’re feeling Mexican, Italian, or fusion, Main Street and Queens Buyway will have what you’re looking for. We love The Glass Onion for cocktails and dinner. Check out their menu here.
After an incredibly relaxing day followed by an incredibly relaxing evening, we invite you to prepare for the most restful sleep of your life. Atop your bed will be a Lavender Bear from Cape Cod Lavender Farm as well as a silky eye mask filled with lavender. Are you sensing a theme? Traced back to 2,500 years ago, lavender has long been used to fight stresses of the body and the mind. Lavender was even used to tame lions and tigers in ancient times! A recent study showed that breathing in the scent of lavender while sleeping increases the amount of time you spend in deep (slow wave) sleep. Of course sleeping on luxury linens helps too!
Stress is an easy thing to get and a difficult thing to lose, but a weekend at our peaceful inn will have you feeling good as new. Click here to book now!
For a couple of weeks in late June and early July, over 14,000 lavender plants at Cape Cod Lavender Farm burst into purple bloom. Come stay at The Captain’s Manor Inn and venture off to visit this beautiful spot. The farm is on 20 secluded acres, and surrounded by 60 acres of conservation land. We have had guests who want to take a day trip to Chatham or Provincetown, make the farm a stop on the way to those towns or on the way back to our Falmouth Cape Cod bed and breakfast.
The Cape Cod Lavender Farm is one of only two such farms in Massachusetts — the other is located in Franklin County and is a smaller lavender farm. “Lavender tourism” started in the late 1990s in the United States.
Some of the products sold at the Lavender Farm include lavender chocolate ($2.75), lavender shortbread ($8.25) and lavender-lemon marmalade ($8) a jar, lavender soap ($7.50 a bar), hand cream ($7.50), candles ($18), herbes de Provence — a mixture of herbs for cooking sold for $14.95 for eight ounces — and the fresh and dried bunches, $10, and buds, $12 for a half-pound bag.
