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

Many of our guests at The Captain’s Manor Inn enjoy the outdoors during their time in Falmouth, Cape Cod.ย  Outdoor activities include hiking spots such as Beebe Woods or Spohr Gardens, biking on the Shining Sea bikeway, walking the village main street, swimming over at Surf Drive beach and kayaking.ย  Cape Cod Kayak located in the village of Cataumet in Falmouth has been a favorite of our guests in terms of equipment rentals and tours.ย  So next time you visit perhaps you might like to try a new outdoor adventure and head over to Cape Cod Kayak to see some of our beautiful seashore from a new angle.
