May 13th, 2010 by insideout

Many of you know that we are scheduled to officially open our Cape Cod Inn on May 27, 2010 for Memorial Day weekend.  We just had an unofficial opening with a couple of very special guests.  About 6 weeks ago a movie producer stopped by our Inn to see our renovations and request if we […]

The veranda awaits

May 13th, 2010 by insideout

The major renovation of our cape cod bed & breakfast veranda is complete!   We are starting to put the rockers and wicker furniture out for all guests to enjoy and it very tempting to take a break and just enjoy the beautiful spring weather.  I can just imagine the original owners in their finery having […]

A good cleaning

May 7th, 2010 by insideout

One of the jobs we knew we had to do at our cape cod bed & breakfast was to clean the pink granite pillars at the entrance to the Inn.  After some prep work and then a good power washing the granite looks fabulous.  Below is a before and after picture for you to see.

Landscaping has begun

April 21st, 2010 by insideout

What a great day.  Spring is in the air and the landscaping has begun.  The crews are busy at work bringing our bed and breakfast park-like lawns back to glory.  An early owner of the property, H.V. Lawrence, was a well known arborist and there are beautiful trees and plantings on the property.  One of […]

Getting heat efficient

April 21st, 2010 by insideout

For those of you interested in the mechanical side of things I am posting some pictures of the previous boiler/heating system and the new one. The previous one has been our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast since 1959 and was operating at 64% efficiency…if the truth be told that was the year of my birth […]

Moving history

April 12th, 2010 by insideout

Our cape cod bed & breakfast was built in 1849 when the horse and buggy were the main means of transportation and as we know that time has changed.  The circular driveway that surrounds Captain’s Manor Inn is marked at the front of the entrance and exit by large pink granite pillars and a wrought […]
