Orleans, Cape Cod – beaches, biking, and so much more


After breakfast, head for Nauset Beach, one of Cape Cod’s main attractions only 1.6 miles from the Inn – miles and

miles of pristine sand bordering the sparkling waters of the Atlantic Ocean.

Bicycle along the many trails that criss-cross the Cape, through forests, over sand dunes or by glacial ponds.

Explore the many art galleries, craft and antique stores in Orleans, along Route 6A, Old King’s Highway or in neighboring towns

The Inn is conveniently located to many of area attractions and we have linked some of the attractions and informational sites.

Up and coming events

The Academy Playhouse, Orleans.   June 19 – July 19

APA_Cabaret_2014web-791x1024Cabaret is a musical based on a book written by Christopher Isherwood, music by John Kander  and lyrics by Fred Ebb. The 1966 Broadway production inspired numerous subsequent productions in London and New York, as well as the classic 1972 film.

Set in 1931 Berlin as the Nazis are rising to power, it is based in nightlife at the seedy Kit Kat Klub, and revolves around the 19-year-old English cabaret performer Sally Bowles and her relationship with the young American writer Cliff Bradshaw.

A sub-plot involves the doomed romance between German boarding house owner Fräulein Schneider and her elderly suitor Herr Schultz, a Jewish fruit vendor. Overseeing the action is the Master of Ceremonies at the Kit Kat Klub.
