Valentine's Day on Cape Cod

Celebrate Valentine's Day Like the Rich and Famous

Tired of giving your Valentine the same roses and chocolates for Valentine’s Day? While that is a lovely gift, we wanted to do something a bit different this year at our Sandwich bed and breakfast.

We are not usually open in the winter, as we head towards warmer parts of the country in our motor home with our kitty. However, kitty has been ill and is not quite well enough to travel. Those of you who have been guests at our inn probably know that I go nowhere without kitty. That being the case, we decided to stay open until kitty’s doctor gives him the ok to travel.

We tossed around several ideas for packages to offer our guests for Valentine’s Day, but nothing seemed to excite us. February 14th this year is on a Tuesday, which means that people will celebrate either the weekend before or after. Since President’s Day Weekend is right after Valentine’s Day, we thought that would be a great time to celebrate.

As we were pondering what to do, a unique opportunity presented itself. Our quiet and quaint little village harbors some quite extraordinary folks. One such person is world-class Chef Robert Smith. He and wife, Peggy, own and operate Smith on Main, a first class catering business. Robert has cooked for the rich and famous and has been private chef to the well-healed and well-known in the Caribbean, Boston, on Nantucket, and Cape Cod. Timing is everything and was such that Robert was available and willing to create a special Valentine’s dinner menu and prepare it for guests at our inn.

We are very excited about offering our first ever Valentine’s Dinner Celebration at our inn. The package includes: two nights at our bed and breakfast inn on Presidents Day Weekend; a wine tasting on Friday night, February 17th; tickets for guests to visit the Sandwich Glass Museum; a hearty and healthy breakfast each morning; and a dinner on Saturday, February 18th that is sure to be an epicurean delight, complete with wines selected to go with each of the 4-courses.

Space for this dinner is limited and we are almost booked out already. For more details, see our "Specials & Packages" page on our website. If you would like to join us for this very special weekend, you can book the package online from our website or just give us a call at 508-888-6958.
