Jan and Charlie are warm, engaging and gracious hosts. You feel like you are staying with friends that you have not seen in a while. Whether it was Jan's delicious daily breakfasts, fresh baked cookies in the afternoon, a complimentary glass of wine near dinner or a special nightcap later in the evening, I always felt like a valued visitor.
The Inn is very clean and well maintained. We especially took advantage of lounging in the living room to peruse the local restaurant menus and attraction pamphlets they have thoughtfully made available. Upon our arrival, Charlie gave us a brief history of the Inn and the Sandwich area and provided us a map of the area with his recommendations on sites to see and things to do. Jan shared her love of the area and their personal history that brought them to the point of owning and operating this lovely B&B where they also reside.
My only caution would be that the back staircase leading to our room and others is steep and narrow and could be a bit challenging for some. If this is a concern, I recommend you ask about the other fine rooms that are more easily accessed.

... Closed for the season. Reason? Freezing!". We must have missed it by a day as there was still rubbish in the bins.
So we drove back to near our hotel and checked out a Jamaican restaurant. The jerk sauce was delicious and the owner spent the entire meal talking with me about cricket. I think it had been a long while for him being able to have this type of discussion so it was lots of fun.
Afterwards we headed to the hotel and relaxed.
... though N was so cold afterwards that his mouth & hands were blue and he was chattering/shivering for quite a while. Poor baby! We took him home and gave him chicken soup and read books under blankets for a while. I made kabobs for dinner while T tried to entertain N for hours on end. It was a little stressful and in retrospect we wished they had left the house and gone somewhere!
After bedtime, we talked about ate popcorn. We haven't felt awake ...
... with the menus or venues in Sandwich. Additionally, there was one more Lighthouse on my list. So we drove to Barnstable for our final meal.
Barnstable Harbor was an important port for fishing and trade in the early 1800's. The first Sandy Neck Lighthouse (also called Sandy Beach Light) was constructed in 1827 - a lantern on the roof of the keepers house.
We headed over to ...
Marcelo and I visited Pam and Roupe in Sandwich Cape Cod (named for Sandwich in Kent). I mentioned before we visited Matthew in Washington DC, well Pam is Matthew's sister. Pam and her husband Roupe were simply the perfect hosts. They welcomed us into their home and ended up with a place in our hearts. Pam took us all over the Cape, as you will see in the up coming blogs. This blog is specifically about Sandwich, which was a Puritan and then a Quaker ...
