Lobster Claw

Lats night Rich and I ventured out for our annual lobster dinner at in Orleans. Lobster ClawAs we were entering our second summer here a very nice gentleman showed up at the inn and introduced himself as Don from The Lobster Claw. He gave us an envelope witha certificate for two free dinners of our choice. What a great marketing idea. I may not have gone there however knowing that we needed to educate ourselves on all the local restaurants we decided we need to give it a try. The restaurant has a real Cape Cod feel. There were picnic tables inside lot’s of fish nets hanging from the ceiling with shells and buoys. Much to my surprise when I stared up at all this netting I found it to be amazingly clean. It is clearly a great family restaurant. Last nights experience was once again as special as the first. Lobster Dinner. Don, the owner is there every day and night welcoming guests. He has been there for 44 years. That’s pretty amazing. The restaurant has a small bar area, a second dining room and a gift shop that has pretty much everything pertaining to lobsters. Although I refer to it as a family restaurant, I tell each and everyone of my guests that come to the Old Manse Inn that if they are looking for a lobster dinner it is the only place to dine. Now they also have a great menu IMG_0441[1] with a large variety of fish both fried broiled, salads and sandwiches.
As we drove back to the Old Manse Inn we couldn’t help but drive down to the beach and catch the last of the sun setting. sunset Cape Cod…a wonderful place to live and for those who can’t live here please come for a visit. We still have several available rooms

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!
