July 1, 2019 – START YOUR VACATION WITH US!
Our Assistant Innkeeper Martha shares her thoughts on Summer:
Enjoy a relaxing getaway at the Proctor Mansion Inn. We are set in the center of a picturesque New England town half way between Boston and Providence. Many local attractions add to our label as a “destination.”
During the summer months I like to leave the mansion after work and go to the Cape. It’s just an hour away and the beaches are wonderful! My favorite is Mayflower Beach in Dennis, where during low tide you can enjoy searching for shells, building sandcastles, and/or even looking for hermit crabs. After a long day at the beach it’s an easy ride back to the Inn. We have wonderful restaurants nearby so you can end the day with a nice dinner.
If you enjoy the Rhode Island beaches better…look up the Admiral Fitzroy Inn, our sister property, located right in the heart of Newport on Thames Street. It’s only one block from Newport Harbor and 1/2 mile to First Beach.
Why not make plans now and enjoy a summer weekend with us, and breeze off to the Cape or Newport for the day and enjoy the weather we have waited for all winter? Let me know where you visited and share your tips with us!
June 1, 2019 – The latest at the Proctor Mansion
Restoration efforts continue at the Proctor Mansion Inn. The historical, 17th century French-Victorian home includes an elegant L’Enfant ballroom. Among its notable details are an ornamental mantle, original mill work, and an intricately designed ceiling medallion reminiscent of Victorian life. The original wallpaper was a hot pink and beige embossed paper. The recently updated wallpaper, chosen to capture the original look, is beige and white paired with hints of pink. A local artist has completed the restoration process of the faded paint on the large ceiling medallion. Original hues of pink, green, and blue have been delicately painted, bringing the medallion back to life. It is once again a focal point of the L’Enfant ballroom and source of much conversation. Entertaining was an instrumental part of Victorian life. Our ballroom is a perfect venue for parties, weddings and meetings. Guests revel in the restored beauty of the room, charm, and hospitality of the Inn. We hope you”ll appreciate the beautification and will be inspired to choose Proctor Mansion Inn for your next event and/or overnight stay. The original owner, Thomas Proctor, would be well pleased!
Stay tuned for our upcoming project…a capital campaign for our Carriage House renovation.
May 1, 2019 – How do you celebrate your Mom?
If “April Showers Bring May Flowers” then we are sure to have a lot of beautiful gardens in New England! Rain or shine it is always nice to honor all moms in a special way. Our annual Spring Tea, on Saturday May 11th, is a unique & wonderful opportunity to celebrate or remember your mom or the special moms in your life. The origin of Mother’s Day took place in the 1900’s. A woman named Anne Jarvis started a campaign in 1905 to honor Mothers. In 1914, President Wilson signed a proclamation making Mother’s Day an official holiday to take place the 2nd Sunday of May. Anna Jarvis wanted the day dedicated to express love & gratitude to Mothers. She felt it was also important to recognize the sacrifices women make for their children and families. Around the world Mother’s Day is celebrated on different dates throughout the year. How do YOU celebrate YOUR Mom? Why not treat her to an elegant Victorian High Tea here with us this May?
April 1, 2019 Spring has finally sprung!
The snow is almost melted and buds are starting to poke through. We are looking forward to longer days and warmer nights! The first sign of Spring at the Inn is seeing our crocuses. In the Victorian Era, daffodils were known to represent chivalry and unrequited love. Daisies symbolized innocence & purity and roses symbolized love, as they still do today. Flowers in the 19th century were gifts given to deliver secret messages. For example, if flowers were given to someone using their right hand it meant “yes”; if they were given with their left hand it meant “no”. If you received lupen, hollyhocks and white heather you were being wished good luck. We have several flower beds at the Inn and are always working to expand our Victorian gardens. In addition to the staff, we have many eager volunteers that help plant and maintain our beautiful flowers. Let us know which ones are your favorite! You are always welcome to come, sit, relax and enjoy the peaceful outdoors. We make a great glass of ice tea; see you in the garden!
