Fall on Cape Cod

With the Autumnal Equinox on September 21st, Fall has officially arrived. With it comes mild days and cool nights and perfect weather for outdoor activities in Cape Cod. We are looking forward to beautiful leaf color this year and lots of visitors at our bed and breakfast inn.

Fall is such a wonderful time to visit Sandwich. The Sandwich Glass Museum has some great exhibits for those rainy days and Heritage Museums and Gardens is still open where you can enjoy the colorful foliage. There is still time to see "Driving our Dreams: Imagination in Motion". Strolling the 100+ acres of the botanical gardens is a joy in the fall.

All of the restaurants in Sandwich are open and, for your dining pleasure, not nearly so crowded as they are during the summer months. You will find everything from the superb fine-dining a the Belfry Bistro to the casual setting at Seafood Sam's. The Sagamore Inn is still open and serving great Italian food and fresh seafood. Their lobster roll remains, in Charlie's opinion, one of the best on Cape Cod. The Aqua Grille has changed hands and has a terrific new seafood menu. There is still time to sit in one of their Adirondack chairs on the lawn overlooking the marina and enjoy a cocktail. In the early evening, dinner on the patio is nice as they have a fire pit for warmth.

 The Brown Jug has just installed their fire pit out on the patio for the season. On Saturday and Sunday afternoons, Gregg Harper's dulcet tones can be enjoyed with a tasty cheese platter and wine or you can ask Michael to prepare a warm drink for you.

There is no better way to enjoy the fall than a visit to Sandwich. As you stroll about out quaint, historic village, you will catch the aroma of logs burning in antique fireplaces, fall wreaths adorn many of the front doors of homes that are 200+ years old, and the trees are sporting their fall attire. Take a walk through Old Town Cemetery for a history lesson of the town's founding families. Stop in at the Dunbar Tea Shoppe for a pot of tea, served the English way, and one of their succulent treats.

All around Sandwich there are hidden paths to hike, rivers and streams to kayak, and trails to bike. Come for a visit and we will provide you with maps and directions to wherever you would like to go.
