Michael Kasparian and many friends from the Falmouth Chamber came by this week for a ribbon cutting to officially welcome Treehouse Lodge into the Famouth community. We are blessed to have a wildly supportive group of fellow business owners here in Falmouth, so it was no surprise that with short notice the Chamber rallied with their oversized scissors to help us inaugurate the new business with a bang. Check out this historic moment LIVE here on video:
Also in the house for this visit were former owners Judy Ernst and Sandee Parmalee, representing decades of leadership at the former Sleepy Hollow Motor Inn. It was quite an honor to show them the new rooms and gardens. Everyone paused to appreciate the amazing Copper Beach tree that dominates the property. Just gazing at it's lush foliage one feels more relaxed.
With Quicks Hole donuts and coffee in the lobby, we admired the red vinyl chairs that have graced this space for more than a decade. Some things never change.
Join us this summer at Treehouse Lodge for a game or two of Corn Hole Toss. We light the fire ball on summer evenings, and guests gather in the garden for conversation and fun. Check it out!
No matter who wins, it's always a fun time at Treehouse Lodge, a new place to stay in Falmouth MA on Cape Cod, walking distance to the ferry to Martha's Vineyard in Woods Hole.
One of the highlights of our outdoor area here at the Treehouse Lodge is our new, marine-themed Fireball. With some newspaper, chopped wood and sticks gathered from nearby woods, a few determined staff members took on the task of creating the first fire. It was difficult in the beginning; the wood was damp from previous days of rain and we had to repeatedly fan the fire to keep it alive.
With some tips from a knowledgeable Treehouse guest (Thanks, Sam!), we kept the fire going by feeding it Japanese knotweed found nearby on the property. This invasive bamboo-like plant, she informed us, was the perfect way to nourish a fire. Once our wood was situated and a good base fire was created, we continuously added the knotweed to keep it going strong.
With the fireball finally coming to life, we look forward to the summer nights ahead full of s'mores, good company and campfire songs!
You can travel many, many places and not find one as uniquely beautiful as Woods Hole. A mecca for science. Surrounded by ocean beaches. Cluttered with waterfront restaurants. Busy like Times Square with travelers to the Vineyard. Free concerts spilling out with happy people dancing in the streets. But peaceful too.
So here is your moment of zen, when fog rolls through sunshine on the first warmish day of June 2017.
This blog was designed to introduce you to Falmouth, Woods Hole, Martha's Vineyard and all that the new Treehouse Lodge has to offer for family fun in the sun on Cape Cod.
