Cape Cod luxury Inn and June 2013 News: Rail Service Returns

June 5th, 2013 by Mike Cassels

Re-opened railroad brings hundreds of visitors to Cape Cod

Our Cape Cod luxury inn and June 2013 news headline is: The rail service returns to Cape Cod after a long absence. Memorial weekend saw the first trains from Boston arriving with a few hundred visitors, an encouraging debut for this enterprising idea. The impact of the advertising campaign and just simple word of mouth should swell the numbers of passengers on the trains, which have a capacity of 1200. The Cape and Islands tourism industry can only benefit in the coming season.

Cape Cod is such a beautiful area at this time of year and with most attractions now open, it all makes for a great moment to visit. The freshness of spring is still in the air, and there are breath-taking views around almost every corner.

We took some time out a few days ago, to try Sesuit Harbor Café for breakfast with our friends. We chose a perfect morning to sit in the sun watching the boats coming and going in and out of this picturesque little harbor. It was a very enjoyable break from our innkeeping, and there is no better place to breath in the magic of Cape Cod and eat great food at the same time. It was a fitting moment to put everything into perspective, to take deep breaths and appreciate how fortunate and thoroughly spoilt we all are to be living and running our businesses in this little paradise of Cape Cod. Incidentally, The Sesuit Harbor Café should not be missed if you are planning a visit to The Cape. It is not only in a stunning location but also serves some of the freshest seafood around – the generous lobster roll is a particular favorite – for lunch or early dinner. You can bring your own wine or beer. Oh, and there is also a great raw bar.

Back here at our Cape Cod luxury Inn, there is much to tell of, following another winter of our ongoing upgrading program. Amongst other things The Sears Room has a stunning new bathroom. This replaced the remodeling that the previous owner did in 2006 – we just could not wait to get rid of it!

We have educational DVDs running in the inn’s Drawing Room for the first time this year, with interesting contributions from The National Seashore, Hyannis Whale Watcher, IFAW (The International Fund for Animal Welfare), The Dolphin’s Eye, Chronicle……..and more). This new feature at The Inn At Cape Cod will provide our guests with an interesting and varied perspective on Cape Cod and the Islands,  and perhaps enable them to focus more on the things that appeal to them. Our unlimited concierge will continue to be available alongside these films, to all our guests to help them get the most from their stay. Exciting isn’t it ?

Helen and I and our staff cannot wait to look after you, should you decide to stay with us at our Cape Cod luxury Inn. You could do a lot worse!

More Luxury Added For 2012 Makes Our Cape Cod B&B Hard To Beat For Value

June 21st, 2012 by Mike Cassels

Various improvements were made during our slow winter season, to enhance the comfort and enjoyment of our guests this summer. From the level of luxury and ambience in and outside the inn, to the appearance of each guest room, we try hard to make the sort of changes that we would appreciate if we were the guests.

So what exactly is new? The Vineyard Rose room has been completely remodelled and refurnished, which has increased the bedroom size and produced a fabulous luxury bathroom. Our most popular Plantation Suite has had a bathroom upgrade. We have also created a guest refreshment area on the second floor, which is equiped much the same as the one in the inn’s library on the first floor.

Outside there are even more areas to sit and relax in our beautiful shaded grounds – all our towering trees were pruned during the winter, except the magnificent 300 year old Eastern Cottonwood. The new furniture rocking on the inn’s front deck includes two elegant rocking chairs and a swing seat for two. The Breakfast Terrace has had a facelift and is awash with colour from the many hanging baskets and planters.

Back inside the inn, our guests will find a tray of goodies in their room to welcome them, which will include hand-made truffles from Chatham’s Candy Manor, and there will be two splits of chilled Italian “bubbly” waiting for them in the guest “cave a vin”.

Each guest room has had a large flat screen and DVD player for some time now and this past winter we have significantly increased the selection of movies available in our complimentary DVD library. We have also added a presidential section of books to our main library. Reading in bed is even easier with two overhead lamps replacing night stand lamps in all the guest rooms.

On the less interesting side, all our guest rooms have new air conditioning units, and the ongoing replacement of clapboard around the inn allowed us to finally have the southern side of the inn painted, using the new colour scheme.

Why not come and see the changes for yourself if you are one of our many returning guests or if you are contemplating a first visit, check us out. We promise you a truely unique and enjoyable time in this beautiful setting – go on, spoil yourself.
