Both my husband and I love Cape Cod and try to visit it every year. Unfortunately, our old inn-keeper closed her business, so we had to look for a different place to stay this summer, July 29th-Aug.2d. After browsing through the names and comments I decided on Chez Sven in Wellfleet. $200 a night, Green room, check for 4 nights in Alexandra Grabbe's name was sent forward,- avanti!
We almost broke the muffler on the dirt road to the house, but had much fun jumping in the air instead. Vacation time it was! The Green room was dark and small for the two of us: there was just one arm-chair to sit, so if I wanted to read and had SOME light I had to do it on the bed. I didn't like dirty windows but the fresh flowers on the table next to the bed was a better object to see. There was no lock in the door, so there was no need to worry about the key. A small green-black-white-tile-decorated bathroom was separated from the room by a pocket door, and had nowhere to keep the usual toiletries, so they were placed on the floor, next to the black radiator. The tub itself probably didn't remember the last time it was properly cleaned, and a cheap liner without a traditional curtain couldn't hide it. The towel set of black and beige was incomplete but I hoped it would at least be replaced and the room be cleaned. Never happened. Nor was the room ever vacuumed. Both the room and the bathroom had a fan, but no AC, which is a disaster this summer. It was always foggy in the bathroom and hot and musty in the room.
Organic granola with a tiny bit of yogurt was served along with buns from the local bakery for 4 breakfasts in a row. There was never enough coffee for 4 adults. Nothing was offered when I never touched a shop-baked muffin or didn't eat the granola. One flavor of tea was available.
But the sun-sets at Duck Harbor are still the best! And yes, we love Cape Cod.Just will have better luck next time..
