The Secret Panel chamber, overlooking a tidal marsh and creek, is in a 1699 house. With antique heirlooms and artwork, it's an authentic experience of old Cape Cod. A very short walk to the village shops, restaurants, gristmill, and Sandwich Glass Museum. A longer walk to the beach, canal, more restaurants, and museums. Open the secret panel to the Revolutionary War escape route. Sit by 1749 paneling and fireplace. We don't offer coffee or breakfast-there are many great restaurants/cafes nearby.
There is a seating area in front of the fireplace, which has candles in it, beside a Revolutionary War escape route that led from the bedroom to the creek, once a river. There are books in the room with chapters or entries about the house, books about Sandwich, Cape Cod, and other things. Your room is the master bedroom. It's in the 1749 front of the house. The back half of the house was built in 1699, and there is the foundation of a mysterious older Cape half house in the cellar.
The front door is your private entry and exit (we use the back). It leads to a staircase to your room. You can park your car close to the front door, overlooking the marsh, so that you don't have to carry your bags far. If you have balance problems or weak legs, be aware that there are six steps to climb to the front door. Five are granite and uneven. Take a look at the last photos. We have added a banister.
Interazione con gli ospiti
I will greet you, show you the room, tell you the story behind the escape route, and answer any questions. Then, I will let you be private. If you need anything, I am available. If you arrive very late or when I am not at home, we can prearrange for me to leave the key under the front door mat for you.
Altre cose da evidenziare
We don't provide coffee or food, because there are wonderful coffee shops, tea rooms, and restaurants a very short walk from the house: Marshlands Bakery and Cafe, Cafe Chew, Uncommon Cafe, Beth's Special Teas Bakery and Cafe, The Brown Jug, Daniel Webster Inn, a Dunkin Donuts, and Dunbar's Tea Room.
- Light drinking is fine, but drunkeness isn't. The room is for two people not three.
