Cape Cod Lighthouses

September 10th, 2018 by parsonageinn

  When you think of the Cape, what comes to mind? Perhaps its the miles of unspoilt beaches along the National Seashore to explore, or our world famous Wellfleet oysters, a homemade bowl of creamy clam chowder or fresh lobster? The Cape’s history is full of sailors stories, numerous shipwrecks and heroic rescues, so for […]

24 hours in Orleans, MA

August 2nd, 2018 by parsonageinn

With access to both the ocean and bayside beaches, Orleans is perhaps Cape Cod’s best beach destination. But for our “24 hours in Orleans”, there’s more to do here than sun and sand: coffee shops, wonderful local theatre, the best art gallaries, lovely shops, bike trials and a variety of fabulous restaurants.  And in 2017 Travel […]

Whether you’re a serious walker, or just the occasional hiker, Cape Cod offers a rich variety of stunning hiking trails to enjoy.  Experience the views, enjoy the scent of wild roses and honeysuckle.

From O’Neill to Tennessee Williams to five time Tony winner Julie […]

Lunch on the Cape

April 19th, 2018 by parsonageinn

With summer just round the corner it’s a fun time as people are busy planning their annual getaway to the Cape. We have all the usual favorites to think about, our glorious beaches, whalewatching, or biking. However, we thought it would be interesting to look at our favorite lunch spots. Whether you’re looking for a […]

Cape Cod, sunrise and sunsets

March 15th, 2018 by parsonageinn

As we dig ourselves out of the latest Nor’Easter, and another expected next week, it’s difficult to think of summers on the Cape and our wonderful sunrise and sunsets. However after a relatively mild winter and with the clocks moved forward last week, warmer weather awaits. Everyone will have a different reason to come to […]

Cape Cod beaches

January 24th, 2018 by parsonageinn

Whatever the season, it’s hard not to think of the amazing Cape Cod beaches.  With so many to chose from and many just minutes from the Inn, there is something for everyone.  Whether it’s the dramatic sand dunes and rolling waves (a surfers paradise) of the Atlantic, or the flat expanse of the beach at low […]

Winter is Coming

November 9th, 2017 by parsonageinn

The season may be winding down and despite the balmy weather we’re currently experiencing, ” Winter is Coming “.  With it comes the chilly damp mornings, bracing walks on beaches and trails, and comfort food (we’d love to see beaujolais nouveau become part of this tradition!). With so much going on the Cape, there’s something for everyone and we’ve included […]

Fall is for Foodies

September 16th, 2017 by parsonageinn

Jo and I love the Fall.   The weather is a little cooler, the humidity has gone, and our beaches, bike trails, restaurants are less busy and our gardens beautiful. It’s a wonderful time to take a short break and enjoy all that is unique to the Cape. Increasingly this time of year has become a time for […]

Company retreats, family reunions and group gatherings

August 30th, 2017 by parsonageinn

We have often thought about how to take advantage of the Inn’s unique features in the offseason.  The Inn’s relaxing lounge with a working fireplace, the cozy dining room and six spacious bedrooms all with private bathrooms, would make the perfect group or reunion getaway for parties of up to 14 people. In recent years Jo […]

Cape Cod’s gardens

June 7th, 2017 by parsonageinn

Cape Cod’s gardens are a mass of color and fragrance though out the seasons. Whether it’s the spring daffodil festivals, the rhododendrons, or summer’s hydrangea’s, there’s always  something in bloom.  We were once told that Cape Cod is typically 10 degrees warmer in the winter and 10 degrees cooler in the summer than Boston.  The more temperate climate may […]
