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!

Cape Cod Seafood Cafe In Dream Waterside Location

August 29th, 2012 by Mike Cassels

Killer SeagullIf you really want to experience Cape Cod casual seafood dining at it’s best, it is probably time to place your order at Sesuit Harbor Cafe. There seems to be a general consensus among local people we know, that there can be no better lobster roll on Cape Cod, and such a generous serving as well.

With SHC hard to find, hidden behind a boat yard, you would be forgiven for thinking that the proprietor wants to keep this wonderful cafe a secret! Word of mouth is probably it’s best marketing tool and it is of course well known and cherished by locals including ourselves.

There is a raw bar, and as well as lunch and dinner, breakfast is also served. You can bring wine or beer to enjoy with your meal as SHC has a BYO licence. The freshness of the seafood cannot be beaten. The cafe’s picturesque location can be enjoyed as you tuck into your fried clams. It is a bustling harbor with pleasure boats coming and going – the salt air mixed with the slight smell of diesel remind me of childhood vacations spent in Cornwall, England.

Ahhh, it’s summertime on Cape Cod again. Sesuit Harbor Cafe epitomises so much of what is good about outdoor living in New England. The good news for our guests is that the Cafe is a beautiful 10 minutes drive away – we hand them the printed directions so they don’t get lost! On their return we suggest they might like to stop off at Smuggler’s for some great home-made ice cream.


The A to Z of Cape Cod ice cream parlours

April 24th, 2010 by cassels

lick fast Strawberry Sundae No summer trip to Cape Cod is complete without a visit or two to one or more of the local ice cream shops that make their own ice cream. There is no shortage of choice, and a lot of people develop a taste for one shop in particular, ourselves included. We are delighted to see that Smugglers on Main Street in Dennis has re-opened for the 2010 season – we’ll stop by whenever we get the opportunity in the coming weeks, and last summer we often found that their wonderful ice cream made a great dessert after a lobster roll at the Sesuit Harbor Cafe. Both are so conveniently located within a ten minutes scenic drive from our Yarmouth Port Bed and Breakfast Inn.

Despite Smugglers being our favourite source of ice cream, we now and then try somewhere else in another area of the Cape, and have rarely been disappointed. For example, you cannot talk about ice cream without mentioning the very popular Four Seas in Centerville or Dennisport’s Sundae School. In both cases, expect to wait in line out the door on those hot summer days in July and August, but it will be worth it – my favourite flavors at Sundae School are the banana (made with real bananas) and the Bass River Mud : coffee, roasted almonds, choc. chip with fudge stripe……..just scrummy !
