We discovered a gem of an Inn on Cape Cod. This was our ninth resting place on our three week road trip and surpassed all the others by so much, it deserves a special mention, as do the owners, Simon and Annabelle, whose welcome makes it such a delightful place to stay.
Our room on the ground floor was beautiful! The whole decor is in black and white with gorgeous splashes of vibrant colour which works really well, being both clean and bright.. Something I love to find when we stay somewhere, is generous towels and these were fabulous! There’s a swimming pool (though I was too chicken to swim!) but the Autumn weather was so mild we were able to have our delicious breakfasts beside it on both mornings.
All that was lovely but it was all the special and unique touches that made this stay such a treat. There were snacks in the room – fruit, crisps and Oreos (I had my first Oreos!) not for buying but included. There was a guidebook of the area for us to borrow. Each evening, there were chocolates on the pillow and a small card with the next day’s weather, sunrise and sunset times. I loved the black and white umbrellas also available to borrow, the delightful Occupied notice for the bedroom door and the rainbow on the stairs! Coffee and tea were available in the sitting room at any time and a nightcap was on offer – just help yourself!
Yet another treat was the garden, with its bike-shed full of bikes for the riding (not more than four hours at a time so that everyone could have their turn!) and a woodland walk full of interesting small sculptures. Those readers who have followed for sometime will know that this would touch my quirky streak! Truly, The Platinum Pebble was a home from home!
Annabelle and Simon felt like friends after only two days. They made us feel so welcome, shared their knowledge of the area, including where to get the best lobster roll at Arnie’s and a fabulous evening meal at The Oyster Company, and judging by the comments in the Guest Book, do the same for everyone. It’s very obvious that they genuinely enjoy what they are doing, have time for each and every one of their guests and take pride in the uniqueness of what they have created.
Have a look at the posts for October 19th and 20th for more detail of our stay in Cape Cod and if you should ever find yourself in Cape Cod, give yourself a treat; stay with Simon and Annabelle in the lovely Platinum Pebble and for more than just two nights!

Absolutely love the metal sculpture, the last photo. I am assuming it is a kinetic art piece, that it moves.

Our pleasure! Feel free to put a link on your website to this post!
We really did have a lovely time, felt so welcome and appreciated the specialness after so many somewhat faceless places we’d stayed at on the rest of the trip!

The Platinum Pebble looks amazing, and the owners seem to know that it’s the little touches which makes a place unforgettable. Your photographs are, as usual, wonderful! You’ve made me hungry!

That table beside the pool looks like a piece of heaven, in fact the whole place does.
