Gratis chocolate  What could be better to brighten up the winter blues than to indulge BIG-TIME in one of your favorite pastimes – that is, chocolate! This weekend brings the 6th Annual Osterville Chocolate Festival, when on Saturday February 5th, between 10 am and 4 pm you can enjoy events and activities throught the village, which is just a short drive from our inn.

Activities include the Great Chocolate Bake Off Contest which isn’t just fun but will also benefit the Hyannis Food Pantry. So why not combine a stay here on our “Beat the Winter Blues”  special with some yummy fun? Then come back to relax in front of your own fireplace, maybe grab some afternoon tea and home-made cookies before going to dinner at one of the fantastic local restaurants.  Hope to see you soon!

Project 365 #1: 010110 Off The Starting Blocks This week we went to the Borsari Gallery & Tea Rooms in Dennis village, less than 10 minutes from our inn. What a wonderful building, an old barn built with the timbers of a 19th century Cape Cod hotel which was destroyed in a storm. The artwork on display is superb, very evocative and diverse, and the icing on the cake is that you can treat yourself to a wonderful, traditional afternoon tea,  including Devon clotted cream and old fashioned cucumber sandwiches with the crusts cut off.
