A Valentine’s Day Getaway at The Captain’s Manor Inn might be just the treat you are looking for in the cold days of winter.

When you arrive for your getaway you will find a special box of handmade chocolates from local chocolatier ,Ghelfi’s Candies, and a long stem rose in your guestroom. You can also select to add a premium romance package or other goodies to your booking.

The beauty of Falmouth Cape Cod in winter is that the town is open year-round. You can enjoy a stroll down Main Street in Falmouth Village and take advantage of the many unique boutique shops where valentine specials will be readily available.

Maybe you are looking for a new outfit for your valentine dinner….perhaps Port Cargo, Treasure Chest, or Green Eyed Daisy will have the outfit for you.

It might be a unique candle, piece of art, jewlery, pottery or other gift is what you are after ……check out such great shops as Vagabond Treasures, The Pink Polka Dot, Twigs, Touche, Celebrations to name a few. After your shopping stroll stop in at any of several restaurants like Stone L’Oven or Bear in Boots Gastropub for lunch.

Now it might be time to walk off your lunch and it is a wonderfully peaceful time to walk and perhaps take in Falmouth Harbor or Surf Drive Beach or any of the many walking trails by such locations as Spohr Gardens, Oyster Pond or Beebe Woods by Highfield Hall and Gardens.

Come on back to the Inn to relax and get ready for a romantic dinner at The Glass Onion or CSalt restaurants. There are a number of other options for dinner such as La Cucina Sul Mare or Anejo Mexican Bistro.

The most important part of all is the special quality time with your sweetheart away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and obligations.

Whatever you do we wish you a wonderful Valentine’s day!

Spohr Gardens

Ship’s Bell on Display at Spohr Gardens on Eel Pond in Falmouth

It’s April and Daffodil Days are upon a clear sign of ย springtime on the Cape! In Falmouth don’t miss ย a trip to Spohr Gardens. Less than five minutes away from our Captains Manor Inn, ย the garden’s ย five acres of grassy paths are planted with daffodils, scilla, jonquils, crocuses, and other spring bulbs. Azaleas and rhodendrons follow to round out the season. ย While beatiful any time of year, springtime is really when the gardens are in their glory. ย  Spohr Gardens is a hidden local gem; a beautiful serene oasis just minutes from the ocean. Historic anchors, including one from the HMS Bounty, and a ship’s bell are displayed along the waterway. It’s a beautiful spot to share a picnic and a great place to take some scenic photos. Grab some coffee or a sandwich from our many Main Street restaurants for a restful picnic on OysterPond surrounded by nature and quiet. There is no charge for admission, though donations are accepted.ย Daffodil Days: April 20 and 27 10 am to 2 pm
