Here at our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast we are almost ready for the big day, Christmas. In historic Sandwich Village and at our Inn we hold nothing back to celebrate the season. We kicked off Holly Days in Sandwich with the lighting of the town Christmas tree, in the center of Town-Hall Square, which happens to be at the end of our driveway.
To ward off the cold, the Dan’l Webster Inn had set up a hot cider stand under their front portico on Main Street. Many stores were open late and serving hot drinks and sweets. We stopped by to wish Merry Christmas to Lee at the Spotted Cod, a wonderful shop where I know I can always find a gift for Jan, since she loves everything in it. We made our way to the bar at the Belfy Bistro where we gathered around Gary at the grand piano and continued to raise our voices in song. Yes, a little Christmas cheer was also consumed.
Sandwich Bed and Breakfast was one of the featured homes on the annual Holly Days Home Tour. Hundreds of folks took the opportunity to see our wonderfully decorated historical home. As we are celebrating the 260th anniversary of our Inn, Jan out did herself to lavish our tree and fireplace mantels with starfish and seashells of all kinds to capture the theme of a seaside Christmas. We served breakfast to our guest in front of the fire in the keeping room and then reset the table with our finest Christmas dishes to show the tour visitors how a 1750 Christmas dinner would have looked.
As Christmas day approaches, you can still join us for the fun, see our web site for our Holiday specials through New Year’s Eve. The outside lights are aglow and the inside is decorated to welcome you to share our cheer at our Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast.
