More Good Reasons To Make Yarmouth Port The Base For Your Cape Cod Adventure

June 10th, 2012 by Mike Cassels

 

We are very grateful once again, to the artists of Fresh Paint Gallery here in the charming village of Yarmouth Port, for allowing us to exhibit some of their paintings in our breakfast room this season. Our guests can admire the works of five prominent local artists, including Claire Marcus, Robert Mesrop, Selma Alden, Ann O’Connell and Julie Blanchard.

Many of our guests spend some time in the Fresh Paint Gallery, which is just a short stroll from our inn. This is one of the leading art galleries on Cape Cod, with exhibits on two floors in oil, acrylic, pastel and mixed media. It is certainly worth a visit, and is one of several interesting attractions in the village.

Come rain or shine, there is plenty for visitors to enjoy, from the 48 historic Sea Captains Houses and two museums to the breathtaking natural beauty of  Cape Cod Bay seen from our boardwalk or from the old Wharf, which are both  a nature lovers paradise.

So the formula for an enjoyable and relaxing few days is irresistable; why not add yourself to the growing number of people who share this view, having sampled the delights of historic Yarmouth Port. There are some great B and Bs in the village, and you never know…….. perhaps we can even tempt you to stay with us!

 

 

 

Our Luxury Inn Is A Great Base For Your Cape Cod Adventure

March 11th, 2012 by Mike Cassels

walking on the beach at sunrise  - Cape CodOkay, let us assume that you are coming to Cape Cod for the first time this summer. One thing’s for sure, you’ll have a hard time deciding which area to stay in, as it can be so difficult doing the necessary research and then of course choosing your accomodation. We, like anyone else who lives Mid Cape on The Olde Kings Highway, can at least help make your decision making process a more informed one, so here are just a few advantages of staying for example, in our historic village of Yarmouth Port.

Tranquility, natural beauty and rich history can all be savored during any time spent here. Our guests can spend time away from their cars enjoying  Cape Cod Bay beaches, Grays Boardwalk, the old Wharf and the nature trails that abut our inn’s two acres of landscaped grounds.

The Inn At Cape Cod made an impact in local history as The Sears Hotel in the early 19th century, providing accomodation for weary stagecoach travellers. The village has more than fifty former sea captains houses as well as The Capt. Bangs Hallett’s museum to look at, and the Edward Gorey House Museum lies on the opposite side of the village green.

April 7th, 2010 by cassels

2006-04-29 05-01 Bodensee 267 Birnau What a week we have had here on Cape Cod. Temperatures have been climbing with these last few days of sunshine and we all seem to be taking advantage of  it. The question is are you? There is no better time to visit Cape Cod than at this time of year, and particularly in beautiful Yarmouth Port. The next ten weeks or so see everything coming into bloom.

Cape Cod beaches:Cape Cod Bay reminds us of the Med.

March 26th, 2010 by cassels

No we are not kidding. Summer days on Cape Cod BayisraelER_0809_0350  can often give us the feeling that we are back in Mediteranean Europe, where we spent so many years before coming to the U.S.A. We look at the wonderful beaches that we and our guests can enjoy, there are six or seven Bay side within ten minutes of our inn, not to mention the same number again on the southern coastline within twenty minutes of our Summer Street tranquil retreat. We believe that Cape Cod Bay beaches seriously rival most Mediteranean beaches, and they are for the most part considerably less busy (photo shown is the Med, just in case you thought it was the Cape).

Your Cape Cod base to see Southern New England

February 28th, 2010 by cassels

One of the most frequent comments from our short-stay guests here at The Inn is that they wished they hadn’t underestimated what there is to see and do in Cape Cod and the surrounding areas. They would love to have had longer than their (average) 3 nights, which only gave them 2 full days to explore.DSC_0274

Sometimes, however, we do have guests return the following season, after a brief taste on their first visit of what the Cape and Islands have to offer. It isn’t so simple, of course, for so many of our overseas visitors, who are planning a two week tour of New England, and have to decide on, and sometimes limit, the places they want to see. The nature of these tours means they are often “living out of a suitcase” for much of the time, which most people don’t really care for. So please think about this, those of you who are in the process of putting together a New England itinerary: perhaps you should consider making Cape Cod your base. It is not just a wonderful destination in its own right, but also a very convenient springboard for comfortable day trips to Newport, Boston, Plymouth & Providence.

You can very easily spend 5 or more days here, assuming you just visit the National Seashore, Provincetown, Chatham, both islands (allowing a day for each of these), then don’t forget, of course, to somehow squeeze in an unforgettable whale-watching excursion. Then factor in a trip to see the Newport Mansions, taking in the scenic cliff-walk, add a couple more of the aforementioned destinations, allow some time to relax locally on one of the gorgeous sandy beaches we are within walking distance of, or drive just a few minutes to choose between many more. So you can now see that a couple of days on Cape Cod is just not realistic, that is if you really want to make the most of your trip.

Tired of driving? Then leave your car in our private parking area for a couple of days and explore the botanical trails that our inn overlooks. Or visit the 2 museums on Yarmouth Port village green: The Edward Gorey House & Captain Bangs Hallets House & Museum, or simply gaze into a magnificent sunset from the romantic Gray’s Boardwalk. Fancy a dip? Stroll down to Dennis Pond, just 5 minutes walk from the inn, and cool off in this  freshwater lake, then sip a glass of wine sitting relaxing on the beach.DSC_0352

We are always delighted to help guests plan their stay with us, either prior to arrival, or each morning during our scrummy breakfast. Start your Cape Cod adventure right here – you won’t want to ever leave!

Gray’s Beach Boardwalk

Boardwalk

Originally uploaded by Brian Powers

Just a short walk from our bed and breakfast, you will find Gray’s Beach. The boardwalk features stunning views, crisp sea air, and an opportunity for a romantic stroll any time of day, or of the year. In the late fall and winter, the Cape Cod air off of the Atlantic Ocean can really be invigorating, as long as you’re dressed warmly.
