No better time to visit Cape Cod than September

A Luxury Cape Cod hotel, is that what you are searching for? And you had September in mind for your visit to Cape Cod and The Islands? Well you have chosen the optimum month historically as far as the climate here is concerned. Glorious late summer days with clear blue skies are on their way. The lines of people and frustrating traffic along Route 28 will disappear once Labor Day is over. Most restaurants, attractions, ice cream parlors etc remain open. What’s not to like about September on Cape Cod?

The beach car parks are rarely full once Labor Day is over and the water temperature remains decent for a swim in the ocean. There is no better time to visit either Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket, and the 15 minute flight to Nantucket is even more attractive as a means of travel to the island. The views of both islands and the Cape can be breathtaking, and you can even book your flight back to coincide with a magnificent sunset.

The Old Yarmouth Inn next door to our luxury Cape Cod hotel, just 70 yards away, will still be serving up mouth watering seafood specials, including the stuffed lobster special that people seem to travel miles to get their hands on…… oh, I can assure you from my own experience that you will enjoy this one! This award winning restaurant never disappoints and has a great wine cellar, friendly staff and ghosts. But then what else would you expect from one of the oldest taverns in the U.S.

There are numerous exciting and mouth-watering events coming up in Cape Cod’s calendar, so you may want to plan your visit to take in one or two of these:

The Annual Cape Cod Bird Festival: Sept 13th, 14th & 15th

The44th Annual Bourne Scallop Fest: Sept.20th, 21st &22nd

National Ice Cream Day On Cape Cod – July 15, 2012

July 9th, 2012 by Mike Cassels

Wow! Need a really good excuse to come visit Cape Cod? Summer on Cape Cod wouldn’t be summer at all without ice cream in every shape or form. Who doesn’t love the feeling of walking into an ice cream parlor and reading about all the flavors, sundaes, frozen cakes and ice cream drinks? The hardest part is actually deciding what to have! Being that my weakness in life is chocolate, I nearly always tend towards either choc flavor or choc topping, but Mike has finally convinced me that there is life after chocolate. So now I try VERY hard to avoid chocolate……….the result is that I LOVE the freedom of having so many choices that I never had before.

July 15, 2012 brings us the National Ice Cream Day where participating parlors will donate a portion of their proceeds to those served by the Cape and Islands United Way. The Fest lasts all day, and you can indulge with the sound knowledge that every mouthful is going towards helping local residents who are in need. Why not wrap the Fest into a stay at the inn? Check out our rooms and choose your favorite – hope to see you soon!

Mother’s Day 2012 In Cape Cod

May 3rd, 2012 by Mike Cassels

Blue Daisy at MonticelloNot long now and many moms around the country will be waking up to the one day of the year when they don’t feel guilty about NOT cleaning the place or cooking dinner! Mother’s Day is a wonderful opportunity to let that special lady in your life know how much she’s appreciated and loved.

Most moms love flowers, so that’s always a great gift idea, but how about a trip to Cape Cod where she can really be treated like royalty and have a fun time too. Here are a few ideas for your mother’s day treat:

Over that weekend there is a fantastic exhibition, Blooming Arts, at the Cape Cod Cultural Centre where there will be some incredible floral creations from celebrated designers, each one paired with a painting by a Cape Cod artist. Lovely gifts, and all this is FREE! The exhibition runs May 12-13.

How about a brunch ride on the Cape Cod Railroad? She’ll enjoy a 3-course lunch while peeking at parts of Cape Cod that can only be seen from this scenic train ride.

Or what about a massage, facial or pedicure? How’s that for being spoiled. Our favorite local spa is Solstice Day Spa, in Main Street, Hyannis, just click the link to see their Mother’s Day contest plus lots more ideas for a great original gift. Follow her relaxing and envigorating time at the spa with a tasty and original meal just next door at the Naked Oyster restaurant.

So if any of this tempts you to treat your mom to a Cape Cod getaway for Mother’s Day, you could think about combining any of these ideas with a stay at the inn – we promise to treat her like a princess!
