Looking forward to a brand new year

Happy 2013!

We have finished taking down all our Christmas decorations – the sparkle and glitter of the holiday tucked away until next season. In 2012 we were blessed with the birth of another granddaughter and were thrilled that she was able to bring her parents all the way from California to share Christmas with us. She packed the perfect wardrobe and stole the show.

The weather this month has been amazing. Maggie and I are enjoying long walks on the beach. Today we drove to Salt Pond visitor center and walked the path to the beach where we saw several surfers. This is quite an unusual January site at the Cape. The next time you are visiting, we highly recommend you consider a trip to Salt Pond. The visitor center has an indoor theater with five, short, rotating films, a museum and a book/gift shop.

We would also like to take this opportunity to extend our congratulations to our friend Ruth Manchester, chef at the Bramble Inn, on her induction into “Best Chef’s In America”. This year, as part of our Valentine package, we are pleased to be able to include a $50 gift certificate for dinner at the Bramble Inn.

Although the unseasonably warm weather we are having makes it tempting to spend our days outdoors, we are making good use of these quiet winter months to spruce up the inn. This year’s to-do list includes replace the remaining fiberglass shower stalls and replacing them with tiled, glass-door showers.

I promise to follow up with more exciting photos.

Now that the hub-bub of the holidays is over, we hope you will consider taking a few days for yourself to relax, unwind and enjoy the beauty of the Cape.

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 (innkeeper@oldmanseinn.com 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!
