Whales Return To Cape Cod Waters

The Magnificent Right Whale

The Magnificent Right Whale in Cape Cod Bay

It’s so heartening to learn that the whale population is back in Cape Cod waters – it heralds the start of another wonderful summer season. Since the word got out last week of sightings all along the northen and eastern coasts of the Cape, our guests have taken the opportunity to drive along to see what it was all about  – and none came back disappointed! Even the rare Right Whales are back, in greater numbers than last year. That will be a huge relief for the International Fund for Animal Welfare (IFAW), whose dedicated local staff and volunteers work tirelessly to protect and rescue these, and many other, marine creatures. But you don’t need to take the chance of not seeing the whales, just get yourself on an organised whale-watching excursion. Our local one, Hyannis Whale Watcher is just 10 minutes from the inn and they will start running on May 16, 2011. But if you can’t wait till then, why not take the Dolphin Fleet out of Provincetown,

New York Motor Show brings Jaguars & media to Cape Cod

April 21st, 2011 by cassels

Last weekend Cape Cod saw the arrival of four new Jaguar cars, two Jaguar executives from the UK and a media group from Germany. To celebrate the launch of a  new model Jaguar XF we were asked to host eight VIP’s, who were enjoying some great Jaguar driving in beautiful Cape Cod spring sunshine, prior to the New York Auto Show which starts April 22. The inn has never seen such illustrious machinery in the parking lot at one time!

The group arrived from Europe on Sunday afternoon, and after settling in they raced off to shoot some gorgeous sunset photos before strolling next door to the Old Yarmouth Inn for a fantastic dinner.

The head Jaguar designer stayed in our most prestigious room, the Plantation Suite, where we hope he managed a little relaxation during his whirlwind visit. On Sunday morning, after an early breakfast at the inn, the media group spent some time touring  Cape Cod and taking more shots of their gorgeous cars in stunning settings. Then it was time to head towards New York to see the launch of the updated Jaguar XF.

Why not follow in their footsteps and book a break with us? Spring is so wonderful on Cape Cod, and we have some great deals on offer to tempt you. We hope to see you soon!

Cape Cod’s IFAW comes to the rescue again

February 26th, 2011 by cassels

We are so privileged to live and operate our inn on the same street as probably the world’s leading animal welfare organisation, IFAW (International Fund for Animal Welfare). So it is with great interest that we read last week of another wonderful rescue, here on Cape Cod. A harbor porpoise became stranded in Wellfleet, in fact it was the third such stranding in just a week. IFAW staff were alerted to the stranding of a female juvenile harbor porpoise at 8.30 am Thursday last week. They, along with dedicated volunteers, took the creature to IFAW’s mobile clinic (a truck!) where she underwent a careful and thorough examination including blood work to establish her health levels. Thankfully, she was in very good shape was therefore a great candidate to be returned to her natural environment.

Historic Cape Cod names with an “Old England” connection

March 29th, 2010 by cassels

Barnstaple Parish Church Some first-time visitors to Cape Cod are amazed to discover that the peninsula/island is a lot more than just a sand-dune, and that in fact Cape Cod is 65 miles long, has 15 separate towns and an area of almost 400 square miles. Any English visitor here (as we were, at one time) will recognise town names, but will notice, sometimes, a slight change in spelling from the original namesake in the old country. So we’d like to explain how and where some of the town names came from, back in 17th century New England.

March 23rd, 2010 by cassels

Poppies, Isle of Shoal, by Claude Hassam Whether you have come to Cape Cod for the glorious beaches, stunning vistas or the serene calm, vacation or weekend break, you will have the opportunity if not the inclination, to visit any number of artists’ and craftspeoples’ exhibitions, which are mostly displayed in their private homes. The many things you will see and love about the Cape during your stay, have contributed to the inspiration of a great many artists and will no doubt continue to do so. You will be able to appreciate their work all the more as a result. There is, if you explore off the beaten track a little, an interesting mix of inhabitants who have been honing their craft here for years, and relative new arrivals.
