Grey on grey on shades of more grey. It's been especially foggy this unseasonably warm winter on Cape Cod, where warm air met cold water and created a steamy cloud suitable for swimming through days at a time.
And yet, the beauty of the Cape is everywhere you look, shrouded but more exquisite sometimes. Forcing you to look deeper, the fog covers contrasts, simplifies composition, hides flaws, surrounds your senses, makes you dream of summer.
Walking around town, you find pops of color -- a bright blue trim or the green lichen that grows in the damp air. These moments populate your memory, filling your Instagram feed and the day with an extra sense of peace, quiet, calm. Woods Hole is a place to gather your thoughts. To reflect and go deeper. To get lost, and find yourself at the same time.
In the winter wet at Treehouse Lodge, our Fireball waits for spring, ready to jump into action with her warm flickering night light, the perfect way to end your day of exploring on Cape Cod.
As we approach our second season operating the new Treehouse Lodge, we are pleased to announce that we are renovating five additional rooms this year which will be unveiled soon as Canopy Deluxe, a delightful option for your next visit to Woods Hole.
Yes, it still looks like a big mess in here ... but let me tell you a little bit about what we have accomplished in these five rooms over the winter: new energy efficient heat & A/C system, new barn wood style floors, all new wall coverings, new paint, new built ins with desks and microwaves, new wall mounted televisions, all new furniture and light fixtures! Phew. Expect to see these new rooms online when we reopen in April 2018 for the season.
What makes these rooms deluxe? Well, the devil is in the details but these rooms will have mini fridges, desks, microwaves and room to spread out with the kids (if they are in tow) on comfy Case Study inspired couch-beds.
As we bustle about getting ready for your return, there is lots of news regarding the property next door to us formerly known as the Nautilus Motor Inn. Purchased in winter 2017 by Longfellow Design Build, this will be redeveloped starting late this year as new condos for the 55+ crowd. And what will happen to the Buckminster Fuller Dome that used to be the "Dome Restaurant" which we can see from the massive Copper Beach tree on our property? Only time will tell. Stay tuned!
