Byron and I are innkeepers on Cape Cod and we are continually amazed at the many different hats we wear to make our inn successful. We are dedicated cooks, hosts, servers, plumbers, computer wizards, decorators, event planners, … just to name a few. A favorite hat is helping couples plan a romantic getaway for their sweetheart to Brewster By The Sea Inn & Spa !
February is special to us and this description gives a great idea of why!!
The February birth flower is the iris. The warm, deep color of the iris is a harbringer of the luxuries of spring, as we know February has long been a month known for romance and love. The iris comes in a few colors including cool blue and snowy white, remembrances of winter. The iris flower meaning are faith, wisdom, and hope.
We make every single day of February our Valentines day and our special package for the month is called ” February is for Lovers”. This helps many of our guests plan their romantic time away throughout the entire month. This year we created a fun new package that includes a couples massage with a chocolate theme. What Valentine’s Gift would be complete without chocolate!
Cape Cod has many additional attractions throughout the month for our guests to enjoy. On February 6th, Osterville becomes the “Chocolate Capital of Cape Cod” as it’s picturesque Main Street plays host to the third annual Chocolate Fest. Anchored by chocolate art and tasty exhibits, store raffles, sales and promotions and featuring the “Great Chocolate Dessert Contest”, the entire village is preparing once again to yield to the temptation, fun and pleasure of chocolate in all its varieties and flavors. The Osterville Chocolate Fest offers tempting events from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and is sponsored by the Osterville Business & Professional Association.
The SheArt Network is sponsoring a Valentine’s Day Art and Fine Craft Sale on Saturday February 6th from 10-3 at the Old Jailhouse Tavern in Orleans. Items for sale by Cape Cod Women Artists include paintings, jewelry, pottery, photography, textile designs, knitwear, prints, and paper creations.
