Captain's House in Chatham, MA- High Tea

mrwynter Nov 27, 2011 02:05 PM

My daughter and I went to Captain's House for High Tea ...today was actually Holiday High Tea. My daughter and I were here a few years back. We enjoyed the great weather by heading to Chatham. After poking around in some stores and then headed for our 2 PM reservation. The entire inn is decorated brightly for the holidays. High tea was served in the conservatory. It was warm and bright with lovely views of the gardens with roses in bloom in Nov.

The tea was 18.00 pp. The three tiers featured savory sandwiches, scones and sweets plus a dish of homemade English trifle. We loved the mushroom pasties and the Branston Pickle and English Cheddar sandwiches. The trifle was delicious. We packed all of the cakes and cookies for my daughter to take back to college as we were full. Oh the pots of tea were delicious. I appreciated that they were decanted and hot and steaming.

It's a charming spot. I highly recommend this for a perfect Holiday High Team on Cape Cod.
