Lunch was a hosted event, however all thoughts and opinions are my own.
There is just something wonderful about New England in the Fall.
The leaves are turning colors, there are pumpkins and apples galore, and the air is that perfect crisp temperature that requires a sweatshirt in the morning but short sleeves in the middle of the day.
The best part however, is that the beaches are empty again. Living by the Cape is amazing, but the hecticness of summer is far removed when you walk on the beach in September...
One of my favorite places on the Cape is the Sea Crest Beach Hotel in North Falmouth. When my friend Jessica of 30 Something Mother Runner invited me to meet up with her and some friends for lunch last weekend, I jumped at the chance. The Sea Crest Beach Hotel is one of the most beautifully redone hotels I've ever seen. if you saw it years ago, you have to go back because it's completely different now!
How is this for a lunch view? Gorgeous!
Our lunch was servied in the Shutter Roomn, right next to Red's Restuarant and Lounge. Red's is named after the former Celtics' coach, which totally ups the coolness factor!
I started off with a traditional Cape Codder, because when in Rome... and a bowl of chowder. I am a bit of a chowder snob and it was so good. I ordered a starter size Fish N Chips, but it was the size of a full meal. Somebody else ordered a lobster pizza! have you ever even heard of lobster pizza? I hadn't but it was delicious!
As we were waiting for our meals, a gentleman walked in an asked how everything was; turns out he was the CEO of the entire hotel! We had no idea he was going to be there so it really showed us how much he cared about the place. From the renovation to simply walking around talking to guests, it is evident the level of concern and customer service. After we said we were bloggers, he told us we should take a tour around and we got to see some gorgeous amenities!
My favorite was the pool area. Granted it was too chilly the day we visited for the beach, but the heated pool (with a view of the beach!) would have been wonderful! I really love the huge Adirondack chair mural and the 1 foot deep kiddie pool! The attached arcade was stocked with fun stuff-- this is absolutely a family friendly resort!
A few steps away, we got to visit one of the family suites. With both kids getting bigger, David and I have to start looking at larger rooms. This gorgeous room has a separate room for mom and dad, with a pull out couch in the family room area for the kids or other guests. The view from the Master bedroom was perfection. I could wake up every morning there and be happy... the only thing better was the bathroom. Seriously, I could have been happy living in the bathroom...
I cam already trying to convince my husband that we should stay at the Sea Crest Beach Hotel for New Year's Eve. Or a night during February vacation for my birthday with the kids... Doesn't matter why I'm coming, I just want to spend more time here, looking at the ocean...
You can check out the Sea Crest Beach Hotel on Facebook or Twitter before checking out the place in person! So now the only question is: when will you be staying?
