Cape Cod Hurricane Photos

March 12, 2014 by Trish Robinson

Cape Cod Hurricane Photos from 1944 were part of a number of recently discovered historic photos many featuring The Captain’s Manor Inn formerly known as Mostly Hall. We came across a number of very impressive photos while working with the Falmouth Historical Society and we are going to be doing a few postings so we can share with you a little bit of Falmouth history.

In this posting we are sharing pictures of some of the devastation on Cape Cod here at the Captain’s Manor Inn during the 1944 Hurricane. This storm carried winds peaking at 145 miles per hour and as a category 2 storm. Because the storm was so massive in both its size and intensity it was given the title the Great Atlantic Hurricane and it was the first storm to get a name by the National Hurricane Center then based in Miami and known as the Miami Hurricane Warning Office. One sad fact is that the storm was famous for sinking what was known as the lightship LV Vineyard Sound killing all 12 men who were on board.

National Chocolate Month

February 1, 2014 by Trish Robinson

Ben and Bill's Chocolate Emporium store in Falmouth VIllageNational Chocolate Month is February and it is a time to celebrate for Ghelfi's Candies in Falmouth Villageall of us chocoholics! Pretty much a day does not go by that I don’t have a little bit of chocolate. We are lucky here in Falmouth, Cape Cod that just a short stroll down from The Captain’s Manor Inn on Main Street in Falmouth Village are two great places to satisfy your chocolate cravings.

You may stop in at Ben and Bill’s Chocolate Emporium or Ghelfi’s Candies or like many guests visit and sample both. At Ben and Bill’s many of our guests love the mocha chip ice cream which has the largest pieces of chocolate you can enjoy. A favorite of guests who frequent Ghelfi’s Chocolates are there different flavored salted caramels from milk chocolate to dark or white chocolate and even crème brulee.
You don’t have to wait for Valentine’s Day to search for that special chocolate treat any time this month will do. The healthy benefits of chocolate are being lauded in all sorts of magazines such as Women’s Health, and even the Wall Street Journal had a story.
Chocolate is even being talked about as a superfood. Of course for us chocoholics, National Chocolate Month is not even enough. So if you need a reason to justify why you are eating chocolate why not follow the national chocolate day calendar.

Falmouth Commodores

July 12, 2013 by insideout

Looking to go out and expeience what Falmouth has to offer? Need some time to have a little fun and watch a little baseball? The Falmouth Commodores is a local baseball team in Falmouth composed of top college players who come from all over the country to play in the Cape Cod Baseball  league. The games are held at Guy Fuller Field, which is only a 5 minute drive from the inn, and is located on Main Street, just as the inn is.

The field offers metal bleachers, huge lights, a concession stand, and announcers just as the professionals provide. You experience everything that you would if you were going to a professional league game, but there are less people to create a more serene and welcoming environment. To share a little history on the Cape Cod Baseball league:

  • the first game ever played in the league was on July 19, 1939,
  • the two teams to first play each other were Falmouth and Barnstable.

This shows how rich the history of the Falmouth Commodores in the Cape Cod Baseball League truly is.

Window Art | Robin Pierson | Cape Cod

February 17, 2012 by insideout

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.

 

Fall on Cape Cod post Irene | Falmouth Ma

September 13, 2011 by insideout

Fall has come early this year thanks to Hurricane Irene (aka Tropical Storm Irene).  This is a picture on Hurricane day taken on Grand Avenue in Falmouth.

Grand Avenue - Falmouth Heights Beach

We were fortunate at The Captain’s Manor Inn compared to so many as we only lost our internet, phones and cable for a little over 24 hours.  The storm stirred up so much salt in the air that the tree leaves were coated with the salt which proceeded to suck the moisture right out of the leaves and they have been falling ever since.  Some pictures of the storm impact are shown below as well as a picture of our son Kevin finally getting to trim the front yard boxwood shrubs after doing storm cleanup.

Newport Jazz Festival|Cape Cod

July 18, 2011 by insideout

One of the reasons we purchased The Captain’s Manor Inn in Falmouth Ma. after looking at Inn properties throughout the East coast was the beauty of Cape Cod and how many things there are to do on the Cape or nearby. One great example is the Newport Jazz Festival seeing as Newport is only an hour and ten minutes from The Captain’s Manor Inn in Falmouth Cape Cod.

Why not attend the Newport Jazz Festival on August 5th, 6th and 7th and after the festivities on Sunday head to Falmouth and plan a respite at The Captain’s Manor Inn enjoying all there is to offer in Falmouth. While here we encourage you to plan a day trip to Martha’s Vineyard. Start early with a full breakfast at 8am at the Inn and then head over to the ferry for your 45 minutes trip to Martha’s Vineyard. Enjoy a day of exploration on the Vineyard then take the ferry back and plan on a wine/cheese platter at our Inn before going out to dinner at one of the fine restaurants in walking distance from the Inn.
