The Main House of the Inn dates back to 1798. According to research by Trevor Maxwell, a reporter of the Cape Cod Times, it might have served as a hiding place for slaves traveling along the "Underground Railroad." In his article "Ties to Freedom," Trevor described the small stone cellar found under a trap door in the Inn's entrance foyer.
Bernd, Sandra and Pamela all have a hospitality background. Bernd (Sandra’s husband) was born in Stuttgart, graduated from hotel school in Germany and attended a seminar at the Culinary Institute of America. Sandra and her sister Pamela were born in London, grew up in the restaurant and hotel business in England (with detours to Paris.) Prior to owning the Little Inn; their combined careers included working in corporate communications, advertising & marketing, owning a cruise agency, TV production and working for major airlines.
As for Ms Penny (Pamela’s furry child) she joined the family a few years ago, and is in training as resident hostess. Ms. Penny’s claim to fame was an encounter not once but twice with a coyote who tried to steal her away unsuccessfully.
Having travelled extensively to many wonderful parts of the world, the partners decided to combine their mutual experiences and talents to create a ‘special place’...A Little Inn on Pleasant Bay.
Pamela, Sandra & Bernd’s vision is to share the natural beauty of Cape Cod. But more importantly, to provide a relaxing and informal environment to enjoy this very beautiful part of New England.
Some night when the moon rises o’er the bay,
I will snatch a moonbeam and sail away,
To the misty clouds where the stars shine through.
In the glorious heavens of midnight blue
To the winsome land of my dreams...
