Recipe for a Great Weekend on Cape Cod

Cape Cod’s Old Manse Inn Cooking School guest chefs enjoyed Mediterranean Madness Saturday in our commercial kitchen. This was our first all girl cooking school. While the girls worked and played hard at preparing a feast of specialties from Italy, Greece, and France their golfing husbands played 18 at the Captain’s Golf Course. Golfers returned for a wine tasting paired with Eggplant Caponata, Kalamata Olive Pesto and Galette au Chevre (Tomato-Cheese Tart w/a surprise ingredient). Although there is nothing like being in Greece I must say there was a lot of energy as we proceeded into our candle lit dining room to a lovely spread of Roasted Lamb & Potatoes Provencal, Spanakopitakia, Arugula with Blood Orange and Roasted Pepper Salad, Mediterranean Wines, finishing with an Italian Apple Cake .
What a wonderful way for friends to truly enjoy an afternoon all doing what they like most. Cooking and golfing on Cape Cod. We look forward to our next class April 14 featuring a cornucopia of flavors from Mediterranean Middle-Eastern Region.

Old Manse Inn COVID-19 Update

Updated May 20, 2020

Dear Old Manse Inn Family,

Charlie and I hope that this note finds you all doing well and staying safe. We miss you and we are certainly looking forward to our re-opening here soon and being able to see and host you all once again!!  We subscribe to the idea that we can achieve our best selves here at the Inn by working towards the common good.  This includes the safety and well-being of our guests - and our great staff!

At the direction of the state of Massachusetts, we are planning to re-open on Monday, June 8th!  If this date changes for any reason, please check back here for an update.  There are also state & local coalitions working together to detail out any restrictions and/or guidelines that will determine how we re-open so that your stay is safe and comfortable.  We will be communicating those guidelines to all guests as their arrival dates approach.  We are surely hoping that we can still provide all of the amenities that you are used to enjoying here at the Inn as well.  We just may need to provide them to you somewhat differently.  We feel that the precautions are the socially-responsible choice and one that will support a more favorable long-term outcome for the communities and guests that support us.

If you have any questions, please reach out directly to the Inn via email ( or phone 508-896-3149). We will be monitoring the evolving situation constantly as the re-opening date approached with the hope that we will be able to open our doors so that we can welcome you all back for a great stay!  In the meantime, we are taking reservations for stays after June 8th and the upcoming Summer & Fall seasons.

Please stay safe and be ready to come see us here on the Cape as soon as things in the world return to normal.

For your recovery and ours, please come visit us this Summer and beyond!
