Autumn Cape Cod at Brewster by the Sea

I love to decorate the inn by season and usually put out our Halloween pumpkins the first part of October. This year I saw these crazy witches legs in one of my favorite catalogs and just had to order two sets for each of our inns, Brewster by the Sea and the Captain Freeman Inn. Halloween is such a magical holiday and this decoration captures the feeling that we should always remember the importance of seeing life through the eyes of a child. My husband Byron had fun when they arrived, and we decided to put them out early:)

and he found the perfect home for them for all of our guests to see in front of the Orchard House, and I can enjoy them every day looking out our kitchen window.

The air is starting to cool and the days still perfect for swimming and beach walking as the waters in the  pool and ocean are still summer warm.

I really think that coming to Cape Cod this time of the year is the best kept secret. The restaurants are not as crowded and the flowers still beautiful…

This has been such an increadable growing season this year. We had a great harvest of tomatoes that our guests have been enjoying – some days we serve them fresh with a little olive oil, salt and pepper

and other days we make a delicious tomato tart.

Our parsley has also been thriving in our gardens, and I am forever hooked on using fresh parsley when cooking as opposed to dried.

It’s also fun to see the fall perennials come into full color as can be seen in our beautiful Seedum plants-

All of our guests comment about our hydrangeas that flank our beautiful pool. This year we are having a second blooming period and it has been such a treat to use the young buds in our guest vases in the rooms.

One of Harrison’s favorite places to go is Upper Mill Pond. The Punkhorns flank the pond, and it is a beautiful area to walk in the woods and later to swim in the pond. This morning Byron was able to capture this shot of a sailboat.

The Conservation Society  just purchased additional land directly across from the inn which proves wonderful walk paths for our guests to enjoy. The wind Mill is a perfect back drop for our guests to enjoy in all seasons. Byron just captures this shot this morning with the beautiful yellow flowers.

And last but not least is a beautiful picture that Byron took this morning in the field directly across from the inns. His talents never cease to amaze me….

  1. Thanks for sharing. Fondly, Joanna and Jim Anderson. Going on our 55th anniversary. Do u still have your anniversary rate. Jim is 83 and had many issues since last were there. I too at 76 have had issues but we are still happy, enjoying our grandchildren. It has always been our dream to visit you again, probably a pipe dream. One other do you have a handicapped guest room.
