Menemsha Inns & Cottages
Martha's Vineyard, MA
The Red Chair had a fantastic weekend enjoying an island oasis away from home at the Menemsha Inns & Cottages.

Red hopes to bump into the President on the next adventure out to the Vineyard!

Blair Hill Inn
August 4, 2012...
The scenery is switching up and the Red Chair is excited.The Chair has travelled up to Maine, a bit different from what it's used to, but just as beautiful! The most recent stop? The Blair Hill Inn, in Greenville.

July 25, 2012...
The Red Chair traveled to beautiful Newport and spent some time at the Cliffside Inn where the owners introduced the chair to Newport. The Chair was lucky enough to explore the beautiful beachside town and experience some of the great things Newport has to offer. The Chair walked along the cliff walk, visited the fire station and tennis hall of fame, spent some time on the water, and got to know some shrubbery camels!
June 23, 2012...
The red chair set off to enjoy the classic setting of Nantucket and the Century House B&B. First on the ferry ride from Hyannis to Nantucket with the view of the island as it eagerly awaits your landing into the alternate world of old Cape Cod. Then taking in the beautiful sights of the historic town with its cobblestone streets and poignant architecture accentuated by the Century House. And of course the red chair did not miss the chance to catch a wave on Nantucket’s notable surf side!
It doesn't get more remote, beautiful or romantic at the far end of Martha's Vineyard in Menemsha. We are waiting with baited breath of the news from the Island, as the chair romps around and meets all sorts of important people and places, staying at the Menemsha Inn.
Sunsets, celebrities and much much more! We even hear the Vineyard Gazette is covering the story. MORE TO COME!!
Captain's Manor Inn
April 29, 2012...
The Captain's Manor Inn is a stately house on the Falmouth Green that has been lovingly restored by Trish and Kevin Robinson. They picked the Red Chair up in Hyannis (with a stop with Doug the Quahog) and then showed the chair all the sights and sounds of this largest town on the Upper Cape. You will enjoy reading all about it on their blog, or watching the YouTube movie they made about their experience!
Whale Walk Inn
April 24, 2012...
The Whale Walk is in Eastham, very close to the incredible beaches of the National Seashore. Here is where President John F. Kennedy would come to clear his mind, and you will understand why he made this area a National Park when you see the pictures. Thanks to Innkeepers Elaine and Kevin Coughlin who braved torrential rain and the birth of a grandchild to take the red chair on a tip-top tour of their corner of Cape Cod. They are also the first to get INSIDE a famous light house!
April 22, 2012...
Creativity and color abounds in the days spent in Orleans. Love the mini-golf, and the moment with other lovers of the sea spent just staring into the horizon (check out the photo essay of the visit).
From the Surf Shop to Nauset Beach, innkeeper Megan Maas at the Orleans Inn gave the chair a true taste of the Lower Cape -- expansive beaches, windmills and all.
Check out her full blog post here.
Gabriel's at the Ashbrooke Inn
April 20, 2012...
No Cape Cod visit is complete without making it to the northern-most tip of this peninsula to see the splendor that is Provincetown.
Innkeepers Elizabeth and Elizabeth of Gabriel's at the Ashbrooke Inn welcomed the red chair and took it up to Herring Cove, out to the breakwater and along the main street at the entrance to their well-located Inn. Check out the full set of photos in the photo essay here. And be sure to read all about it on their wonderful blog!
April 12, 2012...
The lovely town of Harwich is the next stop for our traveling chair, and for the first time you will hear a lengthy monologue from the chair him/herself.
Wondering what is going on in that pretty red head? Wonder no more! Innkeepers at the renovated Platinum Pebble, Simon and Anabelle are so in tune with their guests, they read minds. Read all about it in this delightful blog post.
Captain's House Inn
April 7, 2012...
The village of Chatham welcomed the red chair with some trepidation, but innkeepers Jill and James at the lovely Captain's House Inn soon discovered the power of wandering around taking photos of something unusual.
Checking in with neighbors and friends in the quiet time before the rush of summer has a silver lining as these innkeepers discovered.
You can read all about it on their blog here, or check out the full photo shoot on their busy Facebook page (become a fan!).
Brewster by the Sea
April 5, 2012...
Byron and Donna, innkeepers at Brewster by the Sea and the Captain Freeman Inn, both in Brewster, welcomed the chair this week to their bay-side corner of Cape Cod.
The places this chair is going are so phenomenal, you have to look at the Brewster by the Sea blog to check it all out! I can hear the gulls calling out on that tidal marsh, smell the chocolate hiding amongst the Easter bunnies and hear the rush of the winds on the expansive beach.
Lamb and Lion
March 31, 2012...
Life at the Lamb and Lion is filled with happy surprises, kismet and a feeling of zen.

High Pointe Inn
West Barnstable, Mass.
March 30, 2012...
the chair moved to West Barnstable, a town close to Sandy Neck beach and lots of distinctive Cape Cod imagery, and one of the most romantic spots on the planet.
Innkeepers Debbie and Rich showed the red chair the sights and sounds of their village, even raising the curiosity of a park ranger as they hiked the beach with the chair in tow.
You can read all about their whirlwind affair on their blog.
Woods Hole Inn
Woods Hole, Mass.
March 2012... The chair started here, sitting on the new deck looking out over Woods Hole Harbor. If you look at the map, this is the southwestern most tip of Cape Cod, literally the peninsula, of the peninsula, of the peninsula. From here, the ferries leave for Martha's Vineyard. From here, on a clear day you can see Nantucket too.
And from here to Provincetown is 100 gorgeous miles. This page will track the chair's chronological progress on the map and in photographs.
