Each week, we feature one of The Belfry Inne's unique rooms. Complete with pictures, fun facts, and extra travel tips, our Room Spotlights are designed to help you find the perfect room for your Cape Cod getaway- and to also serve as a medium for showing off to your friends.
This week, we're touring another room in The Abbey: The Belfry's most iconic building. If you don't know already, The Abbey is a church that has been completely renovated with a gourmet restaurant downstairs and seven luxury guest rooms upstairs.
Each of The Abbey's rooms is named for one of the six days of creation from the Book of Genesis and The Tuesday Room is inspired by "The Division of Sky and Water." This is one of the most favorited rooms at the Belfry, so let's get right into it!
The Tuesday Room definitely knows how to make an entrance. While the Abbey is filled with all sorts of stained glass, the biggest and most elaborate stained glass window in the entire building is right here. It looks amazing with the summer sunlight gleaming through, but it looks even more stunning under a full moon. The colors in the glass create a gentle glow that serves as the most ornate night light you've ever had in your life.
While we're still on the subject of lights and windows, I should mention that the unique and classic beauty doesn't end at the stained glass. The Tuesday Room has a high, vaulted ceiling complete with TWO skylights, ceiling fan, and a gorgeous cathedral-style hanging lamp. So whether you need a little extra light to relax in bed with a book, or if you want to glance at the stars through the skylight, we've got you covered.
I know I talk about this in every room spotlight, but it's still so important! EVERY room in The Abbey has its own private deck complete with two patio chairs and a small table. This is a feature you won't find at just any other B&B, so take full advantage of it.
Sure, the deck is perfect for warm summer nights, but if it gets a bit chillier (fall is right around the corner!), what's better than curling up next to the fire with a cup of tea? Even during those torrential summer thunderstorms, there's nothing cozier than spending a night in with someone you love.
One of my favorite things about the Belfry is the attention to detail. Every room is furnished with one-of-a-kind pieces that tie in perfectly with the attitude and aura of the room. The Tuesday Room is no exception with this beautiful, blue, vintage-inspired lamp and the rustic, antique armoire.
And last, but not least, we just have to talk about the bathroom. At the Belfry, we pride ourselves on providing only the best in relaxation. Thanks to the Ultra Bain air jet tub in the Tuesday Room's bathroom, you can relax and rejuvenate in what will probably be the best hotel tub you've ever had the pleasure of staying in. If you're in a rush to get to the rest of your vacation plans, there's also a shower.

When most people think "wine tasting," they think of a gathering of pretentious people sipping on some mediocre wines while making small talk.
At the Belfry Bistro, we like to redefine wine tastings and make them something you actually want to attend- not just something your significant other guilted you into or something you do out of pure boredom.
So here's why we think you should ditch your normal Wednesday night routine (which, by the way, you don't have one), and stop by the Belfry for a drink with us instead.
1. You don't have anything else going on.
As I said before, our tastings are on Wednesdays which means they're the perfect opportunity to relax and take a breather before you continue on with the rest of your workweek. We won't interfere with your weekend plans (unless you decide to come back for dinner on Saturday night...) nor will we keep you out too late.
2. Our wine selections beat the local bar's by far.
We feature four new, refreshing wines each week. You won't see any grocery store brands here- only carefully hand picked selections that you'll definitely miss when dining somewhere else. In the past we've featured selections from vineyards all over the country, and sometimes we even have the winemaker stop by for the tasting!
3. Making friends is fun, right?
Tastings at the Belfry are not your typical awkward get togethers, so there's no small-talk necessary. Feel free to either stick by your party or branch out and meet some new people. The Belfry is known for it's comfortable, "at-home" atmosphere, and that feeling definitely comes through at the tastings. Make sure to bring a camera and share your event pictures with us on our Facebook page!
So, what are YOU doing Wednesday night? If these reasons didn't convince you, check out our schedule and selections list.
As we've mentioned before, the Belfry is not your typical inn. We don't really believe in beige walls, standard showers, or seemingly cloned guest rooms; oh no. We understand that you want accomodations that suit your style and personal needs. Seriously, we've got something for everyone in every possible occasion.
Whether it's your wedding night, some long-overdue alone time, or maybe you just wanted a weekend away from the kids, The Abbey is where you'll want to be. I know the whole "church" feel might make you a bit uncomfortable at first, but once you pass through the doors, you'll forget you're in a once-sacred building and be immediately blown away by the unique, fairytale-worthy decor.
No more low-pressure showerheads or tiny tubs! Each room in The Abbey is complete with only the best private bathroom facilities. Enjoy the Tuesday Room's whirlpool tub which can comfortably hold two people, relax and rejuvenate all your senses with the Wednesday Room's Vedana Spa Unit, or let all your stress melt away with the John Drew Room's (The Painted Lady) jacuzzi tub. With ammenities like these, you'll never want to leave your room!
While it might be too hot to even consider lighting a fire in this weather, you have to admit that there's nothing more romantic than cuddling up next to the fire with someone you love. If you find yourself at The Belfry during one of the colder seasons, take advantage of the beautiful gas fireplaces that can be found in the Sara Drew Room (The Painted Lady), the Thursday Room, or the Friday Room.
Some chefs claim there are certain foods that help "set the mood," but let's be honest: ALL of our mouth-watering dishes will make anyone happy. So either make a reservation for a dinner date at The Belfry Bistro, or call the front desk to have something yummy brought up to your room to enjoy in a more intimate setting. Not to mention, we have quite the wine selection if you find yourself feeling a bit thirsty.
So skip the cheap motel or the local Budget Inn and book your next romantic retreat at The Belfry. We're committed to making your stay perfect, stress-free, and something you'll never forget.
