Holidays at the Belvedere!

Posted by on Nov 7, 2013 in Belvedere Blog, Holidays at The Belvedere Inn, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Relax and enjoy the festivals and celebrations This time of year is truly magical on Cape Cod. The crowds subside, traffic disappears, and the holiday season rolls in. From harvest festivals, to cookie strolls, and First Night celebrations there are endless opportunities to revel in the holiday spirit.   Christmas music and local arts and crafts for those special gifts   One of my favorite places to visit this time of year is just down the street from the Belvedere. The Cultural Center of Cape Cod was once a bank but now this beautifully renovated building hosts year round events including a holiday arts and crafts gift show by our local artists, a Dickens’...

Fall Views From Cape Cod Lighthouses

Posted by on Sep 30, 2013 in Belvedere Blog, Featured Slider, Uncategorized | 0 comments

          Despite the beautiful warm weather Cape Cod has had recently, a hint of fall is creeping in. You can almost hear the leaves turning from supple greens to crisp reds and yellows.     With spectacular views of both land and sea, there is no better place to view nature’s autumnal tints but from high above in a Cape Cod lighthouse. My personal favorites are Nauset Lighthouse in Eastham, Highland Lighthouse in Truro, and Race Point in Provincetown. It’s easy to visit all of them in a day from the Belvedere Inn since they are in a straight line off of the Mid-Cape Highway, US-6. Start with a warm breakfast at The Belvedere Inn,...

Solar Power Electrifies The Belvedere Inn!

Posted by on Sep 16, 2013 in Belvedere Blog, Greening of The Belvedere Inn, Uncategorized | 0 comments

Solar Power Coming To The Belvedere Inn! After much research and consideration, The Belvedere is going solar! This October, 30 American-made solar panels will be installed on the barn roof. The power generated will offset 65% of our yearly electric bill.   At the Belvedere, we are committed to using green technology and sustainable practices wherever possible. But when Matt and I initially thought of installing solar, it was a bit of a pipe dream. The “maybe if we win the lottery” type of idea.  After all, the biggest obstacle to many green practices, and especially green energy, are the upfront costs. Right? Well, not always, as we found out.   With help...
