It is officially 2010 and we have snow on the ground! The weather has been on the chilly side and the first snow we had melted for New Years and then it came back again this past weekend full force. The motel is covered with snow and it looks gorgeous. I took the picture in this post today, the snow has melted a little, but overall, we are covered. This weather is great for snow shoeing and cross country skiing on the bike trails. I noticed the trail has almost untouched snow and it is thick and fluffy.
Off to enjoy the snow while it lasts, Happy New Year!

It is that time of year, Christmastime. This is a great time of year for us here at the Town Crier Motel. We enjoy all of the holiday lights up and down route 6 as well as the holiday shopping and cheer. Lucky for us the weather is just beautiful and the sun is shining brightly. We have had some pretty decent weather this Fall/Winter and we did get some snow a couple weeks back. We are all closed up for the winter and are glad to have some free time this winter to organize, stretch and enjoy for the next few months.
We want to thank all of our guests for staying with us this year. We have a wonderful summer and we hope everyone enjoyed their vacations on Cape Cod. We are now closed for the 2008 season and we will re-open in April of 2009. Check back soon as we will be redesigning our website with a new fresh look for this next year. Have a great Winter! See you in the Spring.
