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.

After a long day of hiking, kayaking, or shopping (hey, it's hard work!), we all love to just lay back, chill out, and take a breather. While it's definitely important to get make the most out of your Cape Cod getaway, it's just as important to take the time to rest up for the rest of your vacation activities. Take a nap, enjoy a drink on the porch, indulge in a therapeutic bath using our Vedana Spa Unit, or check out one of our picks for the best massage spas in Sandwich, MA.
