Sandwich Village on Cape Cod for the Holidays

The holidays are a special time in Sandwich Village and at our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast. Sandwich Village is the quintessential Currier and Ives New England town during the Holidays. At Thanksgiving, a few of the brightly colored leaves will still cling to the great oak and maple trees that line the streets of the Village. That wonderful smell of natural wood fires will mingle with the aromas of Thanksgiving dinners being readied for family gatherings. The first Pilgrim’s Thanksgiving was celebrated just a few miles up the road at the Plymouth Colony in 1620, and the tradition continued here in Sandwich after it was incorporated in 1639.

In 1750 the first Thanksgiving was celebrated at the Jonathan Bassett home at 118 Tupper Road in Sandwich Village. This year, we are celebrating the 260th Thanksgiving in this lovely, historic home that is now the 1750 Inn at Sandwich Center. See our website for great Thanksgiving specials.

Sandwich Village really shines for Christmas with lots of activities starting the first weekend in December and running through New Year’s Eve. The Sandwich Chamber of Commerce decorates the Village in greens and lights to reflect the season. Town Hall Square, of which we are a part, is the center of the festivities. The Town Christmas tree, located at the end of our driveway, is lighted as we town folks and visitors sing carols in front of the First Church of Christ. The shops are open late and hot toddies and goodies are offered to warm and refresh the wandering patrons. On the second Sunday of December, we participate in the Home Tour and open our Inn to the 100s of visitors who have an opportunity to see some of Sandwich’s magnificent old homes in their Christmas splendor. I always enjoy giving tours of our Sandwich Bed and Breakfast and sharing its wonderful 260-year history.

This year we will be open through New Year’s Eve and will celebrate with friends and guests. Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Eve bring thoughts of food and celebrations. Why don't you come to Cape Cod this year? Sandwich is a very special place to spend the Holidays and we are offering some great packages to make your celebrations memorable ones.

See the Sandwich Chamber website for a complete listing of Holly Days in Sandwich events.
