UK TELEGRAPH TRAVEL – “FOUR OF THE BEST – CAPE COD INNS”

Best Cape Cod Inns

The Pebble is run by Annabelle and Simon Hunton, blow-ins from England who, having holidayed on the Cape for years, knew there was a gap in the market for a place that mixed the intimacy of a B&B with the service of a really good hotel. The result is a chic little eight-room inn with a swimming pool and sun loungers and an outdoor fireplace that is great for toasting marshmallows and drinking mulled wine around in winter. Unlike many inns, The Platinum Pebble Boutique Inn offers its gourmet breakfast – pastries, breads, yogurts, etc – in your room, for those who prefer a slower start to the day, and there’s a sitting room and a terrace by the pool where you can bring your own wine to quaff in the evenings.

So I will probably rave about this place many times as it is our new favorite in the Cape. I consider myself a self proclaimed expert on Cape Cod. I have been coming to the Cape since I was a child and introduced Kevin to the Cape in 2004. I think we have now seen and done all the touristy things. There is just a spirit in the air that brings us back to the Cape year after year and usually multple times throughout the year. I have stayed in hotels and B&B’s from Falmouth to Chatham and to this day nothing has measured up to The Platinum Pebble.

Owners Simon and Annabelle Hunton have punctuated a black-and-white color scheme with cobalt blues, vivid oranges, reds and turquoises.  Full article on this contemporary Cape Cod Inn below.

History meets luxury at this Cape Cod getaway. The property underwent extensive renovations in 2010, upgrading its amenities and decor to fit a modern clientele. But even so, peace and quiet are still front center at the Platinum Pebble Boutique Inn — and nowhere more so than at the secluded yoga studio tucked behind the inn’s grounds. It’s a perfect spot for some isolated meditation.

GUEST BLOG – PERPETUALLY CHIC

perpetuallychic

The Platinum Pebble Inn, an old sea captain’s house circa 1830’s, is a gem tucked away in Harwich, Mass. A completely renovated interior means floral wallpaper and frilly curtains were swapped with clean whites and modern decor that to us felt very much like home. With our own penchant for interior design, we appreciated the details of Annabelle and Simon’s work – from the unique lighting fixtures to the different tile selected for every bathroom. I also died for the dark wood floors and striped wallpaper.
