Our Cape Cod Whales 26 Aug 2015, 3:06 pm

One of the must see and do while on Cape Cod, is a whale watch.  Nothing can be as exciting as the first sighting of whales blowing after a deep sea dive or tail flukes flashing as they dive again.   Humpback whales with their calves, Minke, Finback & the endangered Right Whale are residents of Cape Cod from April through October.  We are happy to help you arrange a day trip to see these magnificent mammals!

“Mother and Daughter Weekend” 24 Mar 2015, 1:28 pm

While planning a Mother’s Day Weekend surprise, I found this wonderful B&B in the Top 5 on TripAdvisor. Unfortunately, my mother and I arrived much later than scheduled, but Liz exuded great hospitality upon our arrival. She greeted us with a warm smile and open arms. She gave us a tour of the B&B and explained where everything was. She went above and beyond by providing us knowledge of local restaurants, the ferries times (as it was off season) as well as information about Martha’s Vineyard to plan our excursion the following day. The B&B was amazingly clean!! … and she has thought of everything !! Her hospitality was superb and we felt very pampered!! I can’t wait to go back. In fact, it is only a matter of time ! We hope that you consider this B&B for your next trip and we are almost certain that you will be pleasantly surprised, just as we were :)
P.S. My mom could not stay away from the chocolate chip cookies and I fell in love with the blueberry crepes.

perfect! 24 Mar 2015, 1:28 pm

A truly wonderful b&b, with a most charming, helpful hostess. The room was beautifully appointed, exceptionally clean, and the breakfasts were amazing, so well thought out. The views from this gorgeous house are great, right out to Marthas Vineyard, lovely to relax looking out to sea, glass of wine in hand (provided!)
A great find, I will be back!

One of the reasons we chose to live on Cape Cod was for it’s mild climate!   But,  this isn’t the case right now! I won’t bore you with the details of how much snow we have ,  I’ll let the pictures & video tell the story.  We also had a first today – 2 snowmobiles driving right down the middle of Grand Ave! Jerry is really excited as he is planning to try out his new cross country skis tomorrow!  Remy, on the other hand,  is not as excited about the fluffy stuff!


Look at the bird feeder! Almost swallowed up by the drift!

The Unoffical Kick Off! 10 May 2014, 6:20 pm

memorial day 8Memorial day is a perfect time to visit Cape Cod and Falmouth.  It’s the unofficial start of the season.  There is plenty to  see and do without the hustle and bustle of July & August.  The National Cemetery is decked out to honor  our fallen heros.  Our Main Street also shows it’s patriotic side.  Our beaches are wide open for you to take in the early summer sun & sand. Why not take a long weekend to reflect & relax in  beautiful Falmouth.

Celebrate! 10 May 2014, 5:50 pm

Baileys opened for the season on May 1st.  Despite the weather,  we’ve had some great guests.   Those who have experienced Baileys know that I love to celebrate a milestone.  This weekend we had a birthday celebration & the gals did it in style.  The girls  have been friends since college.  I am thrilled that they chose to celebrate at Baileys!  But….I am not spilling the beans on which BIG milestone this is!

Houghton's New Rug


When we first opened Baileys By the Sea, we were opened year round.  It became clear that we needed the quiet months to unwind & perform upkeep that couldn’t be done while accepting guests.  Those who really know me, know that it was because I wanted to be able to work on my golf game!  And,   this has been true for most of the winters here on Cape Cod.   Last year, & particularly this year, this hasn’t been true.  What should I do with my time???  Redecorate, of course.   We are constantly, painting & refreshing the entire Inn.   Last winter the owners quarters got a face lift.  There have been 2 issues in guest rooms that I keep hearing about from our great staff….  the rugs in Houghton & Tokyo.  Well….   although I still love the old ones….  the new rugs are gorgeous!  (I think)  The pictures do not do them justice!  Remy looks great & very at home, on the Tokyo rug!Tokyo's New Rug
