Well we are winding down Winter here on the Cape and glad Mother Nature is calling it quits. March is still a great time to come to the Mid-Cape area where the Inn is located. All the better stores and restaurants are open and crowds are manageable. On these bright cool days it is fun to drive around and check out roads and stores and beaches and all that without worrying about parking and all. Several great places to eat lunch or have chowder and look out over the harbor and think you are plain lucky to be here right now. Then wander back to the Inn, open a book or your Kindle and sit by the fireplace in the Common Room and relax till Wine Hour Starts. Your pup can join you on the floor and then you can let April or Jeannie show you menus of our recommended places to eat and then come back cuddle and get a great night’s sleep with very good dreams.

Well, Christmas is over and the Quiet Time on the Cape is coming up. Granted this is going to be a great time to head North and go skiing, but it is also a great time to come to the Cape and there will be less snow and cooooold temps. Here in the Hyannis Area, most all the great restaurants are open year round and not only are crowds down, but many have special entries, umpteen course fixed-price meals with a bottle of wine around $30 a head. Other places have half price appetizers at the bar up till 6. Sounds early, but it does get dark early and if you have been out checking local shops and galleries, you are probably ready to eat and then come back to the Inn, sit around the fireplace in the common room and read a book that you brought or taken out of the Lemuel Simmons Memorial Free Library upstairs or open you Kindle and read or watch net flix and all since we have free WiFi everywhere.
