We survived our first summer and boy was it busy! In fact, we’re
enjoying the busiest year in the Carriage House Inn’s history and
want to thank all our guests for choosing to stay with us. As we ease
into the slower months, several projects are in the works:
Room One Gets a Facelift!
In the next month, room one will get a fresh coat of paint and brand new
furnishings and linens. It will have a very “Cape Cod” feel
with white wood furniture, the highlight of which will be a canopy bed!
to be an Innsitter?
We are looking forward to a much needed vacation in January. During that
time, we have hired a professional innsitter to run the inn. On the weekend
of January 22nd and 23rd, she will be conducting a seminar for prospective
interim innsitters. Visit
our specials page to learn more about this package. We have also posted
Day, New Year’s and Winter packages to our specials page.

This is the title of the cookbook we are in the process of putting together.
The book will feature James’ breakfast recipes as well as several
of our favorite dinner dishes. And, after just a year in business, we
have gathered so many funny stories, we decided to include some of them
in the book. To be the first to hear when the book can be purchased, send
