Visit Cape Cod

It is difficult to believe that January is almost over, but here we are. It is a time for introspection and for planning. We hope you are giving some thought to a visit to Cape Cod this year. If you are, we hope you will come to Sandwich for a truly wonderful vacation or, if time only allows, for a quick get-away. We love helping guests celebrate anniversaries and birthdays.

 You may think it is a bit premature to be planning a trip here this early in the year but, if you want to visit in the warmer months, you should give some thought to making those accommodations reservations now. Sandwich is a hugely popular place for weddings and planning ahead is important if you are to have a wonderful place to stay while you are here.

If you are attending a wedding in Sandwich this year, you may have already seen the 1750 Inn at Sandwich Center listed on a "save the date" card.  Many brides who have chosen one of the beautiful  settings in Sandwich for their wedding send out these cards to people who will be attending encouraging them to make their lodging reservations as soon as possible. If you have any questions, we hope you will give us a call. We would be happy to help you in any way that we can.

If you are a first time visitor to Cape Cod, there is a wealth of information on our website about the Cape and Sandwich. As our lovely and quaint little village is the oldest in the area, there is much historic and wonderful here. Our inn is nestled historic Town Hall Square and is just across the street from the world renowned Sandwich Glass Museum and the recently renovated Sandwich Town Hall. Just up the street you will find the 1600s Dexter Grist Mill, which operates grinding corn during the summer months, and the Hoxie House, the oldest home on Cape Cod. Just a short walk up the hill is Heritage Museums & Gardens, surely the Crown Jewel of Cape Cod. Exploring these wonderful places will fill a day for you quite easily.

Sandwich is a great place to choose as a base when you are planning your vacation. You can easily day-trip to the islands of Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard from here. If you are going to Nantucket on the 9 am ferry, we will happily send along a take-away breakfast for you to enjoy on the hour-long ferry ride over to the island. Be sure to check out the packages we have put together for you convenience in visiting these lovely islands.

We offer several packages that may be helpful to you in arranging you visit here. We have a "Whale Watch" package that offers two locations from which to depart and a "Sandwich by the See" package that has tickets to some of the most wonderful attractions in Sandwich and is a wonderful package for a great three-day get-away.

A trip to the Cape would not be complete without a stroll on the beach. We have lovely beaches here and our Sandwich Boardwalk was recently named one to the most beautiful in the world. Best of all, it is just a short walk from our bed and breakfast inn.

Come for a visit. Our promise to us is a pristine and charming place to stay and the warmest hospitality on the Cape....Your Innkeepers, Jan & Charlie.
