What a Year It Has Been!
Well summer has been and gone and Val and I just finished our first year at the romantic Cape Cod Carriage House Inn. We began early last September and we’re amazed at how quickly the year flew by.
Our overall impression as new innkeepers is absolute amazement. For whatever reason, the Carriage House Inn attracts the most wonderful, interesting and fun-loving guests from all over the world.
We wanted to recap some of our experiences with you. So here we go – a whole year’s worth!
