editor’s note

I

love this issue because it features two of my favorite things—beautiful outside spaces and delicious food! While working on this edition, I helped stage photo shoots of backyards in Chatham and Yarmouth Port, and later, ate my way through Cape Cod by sampling granola, pressed burgers, scones and lemon bars. To kick off spring, writer Vivian Siempos Haidas takes readers on a tour of four backyards in the cover story, “Outdoor Living: Creating Spaces in Nature,” which showcases stunning living rooms, kitchens, stone walls and fireplaces. The story also highlights an icon of summer living—the outdoor shower. As the writer points out, homeowners are transforming their backyards into entertainment spaces where nature is in full view. When I scouted several gardens last summer with photographer Betty Wiley, I met an amazing landscape designer, Maria Hickey of Falmouth. She gave me a full tour of a heavenly gar-

Thank you for reading, JULIA CUMES

den in Harwich overlooking Nantucket Sound. I knew it was the one as soon as I saw it. Writer Debra Lawless profiles the property in the story, “Bursting With Color.” “We took it up 10 notches,” says Hickey. After looking at the pictures, you’ll see why. Judging by the excitement of my coworkers, I know you will be thrilled to read “Nuts About Granola,” which profiles four local granola makers. Every time I mentioned granola in the office, people’s eyes lit up! Who knew granola could spark so much interest and passion? Thank you to all of the granola owners for giving us plenty of bags to sample. We enjoyed every morsel. The food tour continues with the new Mom & Pops Burgers and The Bashful Tarte bakery in Chatham. Flip to the food section to read more about the people behind these fabulous new places.

NEWS AND NOTES FROM AROUND THE CAPE

Cape Memories Burn Bright As a boy, Michael Gaffney spent his summer vacations in Chatham with his family. It’s where he learned to fish and it’s also where he took his wife, Cara, on their honeymoon. Cara has fond Cape memories, too, as she spent summers with her grandparents in Mashpee. The owners of Seawicks Candle Company in Boothbay Harbor, Maine, now share their love for the peninsula with their first Cape Cod candle, which captures the essence of Cape summers with water hyacinth and sea grass scents. “Cara and I wanted a warming scent and something that emulated the Cape’s warm, summer breeze,” says Michael, who says they try to visit the Cape every summer with their two young boys, Finn and Ross. The candle’s map highlights popular areas, such as Buzzards Bay, Sandy Neck, Provincetown, Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and Chatham. “I hope our Cape Cod candle evokes summer memories when lit,” says Michael. “All of our candles are inspired by our memories of time spent with family and friends along the coasts.” When you are done burning the candle, you can also recycle the holder and use it as a glass for your favorite beverage or summer cocktail! —Lisa Leigh Connors The Cape Cod candle retails for $28. The 100 percent soy Seawicks candles, all made in the U.S., are sold in stores across the Cape, including Sea Bags in Chatham and Mashpee, Roots Home & Garden in Provincetown and Design Works in Yarmouth Port.

A Toast to Truro Vineyards

I

n 2007, Dave Roberts purchased Truro Vineyards of Cape Cod and moved to Truro with his family, all of them mak-

ing a commitment to be involved in the business. This year, the vineyard is celebrating its 10th anniversary under the Roberts’ ownership. It has been a successful venture. Wine production has increased 68.5 percent in 10 years, tastings went from 20,000 to 38,000, the property grew in size from 1.6 to 6.1 acres, and South Hollow Spirits was added, with rums and gin distilled on premises—a labor of love for the entire family. The grounds are a popular space for tourists and locals, where families, kids and dogs can picnic. Blackfish Restaurant’s Crush Pad Food Truck sells a variety of food, from lobster bisque to Kobe beef hotdogs, and the grownups can order drinks outside. The space is also used for local Truro celebrations and is rented out for weddings. On a sunny summer afternoon, the place is packed. “The outdoor space happened organically,” says co-owner Kristen Roberts. “We have tastings outside, and farmer-winery license, so we can sell by the glass.” The family had begun talks as early as 2005 to buy the property, a 19th-century farm (of which Edward Hopper did two paintings), from Kathy Gregrow and Judy Wimer, who established the vineyard in 1993. The vineyard grows some of its own grapes, offers wine-tastings, tours and a gift shop. Winemaker Matyas Vogel and Robert’ son David Jr. produce 19 different wines, including their popular Lighthouse Series and several higher-priced limited release wines. Kristen Roberts, along with her brother, David, now run the day-to-day business. Dave Roberts and his wife, Kathy, who spent their honeymoon in Truro and vacationed there as a family every summer, still guide the business. “My father loved the idea of all of us being near each other,” says Kristen. “It’s been great, and it gets better every year.”—John G. Ives Truro Vineyards of Cape Cod, 11 Shore Road, North Truro, 508-487-6200, trurovineyardsofcapecod.com. The vineyard is hosting a summer kickoff party tentatively scheduled for June 24.

Author Profile: Martin Sandler The prolific Cotuit author discusses his new book about the Whydah shipwreck, which begins and ends on Cape Cod. BY KELLY CHASE

“C

an I tell you a story?” asks Martin Sandler in his Cotuit home office. He pulls his knee up to cross his legs, revealing his striped colored socks. His chair sways slightly, knocking his thick pine desk, which is covered with papers, binders, pens, pencils and knicknacks. Faded Life magazines fall to a slant behind him and he is completely surrounded by books—his cave of facts. Historian Martin Sandler is a man from whom you never turn down a story. Sandler, who lives in Cotuit with his wife, Carol, has a quick wit, an infectious curiosity and a timeless sense of humor. He has written more than 80 books for children and adults, including “Iron Rails, Iron Men and the Race to Link the Nation: The Story of the Transcontinental Railroad” and “The Impossible Rescue: The True Story of an Amazing Arctic Adventure.” His most recent book, “The Whydah: A Pirate Ship Feared, Wrecked and Found,” begins and ends on Cape Cod. There are conflicting accounts, but Sandler’s version starts with Sam Bellamy, a recently released British sailor searching for adventure who made his way to Eastham. There he meets Maria Hallett and falls in love, but as the story goes, her parents won’t have it—a young man with little money who lives in a pub wants to marry their daughter? Now Bellamy has something to prove and he puts a plan in place. “Bellamy says, ‘I am going to go and find a Spanish treasure ship and get rich and sail back to Cape Cod with the riches,’” explains Sandler. “He’s planning to show Maria Hallett’s parents what he’s made of and then take her off to her own Caribbean island.” When Bellamy arrives in Florida and the Spanish treasure ship is nowhere to be found, he pivots into piracy and becomes the most successful one-year pirate in the history of piracy, according to Sandler. The story about Maria Hallett could never be confirmed. “Some argue it’s not true, others have said it could be, but it doesn’t matter to me,” says Sandler. “For some reason, after he was so darn successful in the Mid-Atlantic and the Caribbean, he suddenly says, ‘Guys, I am changing the course—we are heading for Cape Cod.’” The Whydah sunk off the coast of Wellfleet in 1717 with all the treasure on board, killing 144 men, including Bellamy. In 1984, Barry Clifford and his crew aboard the Vast Explorer located the shipwreck and pulled up artifacts from the ocean

floor. They found millions of dollars worth of silver and gold coins, bars and jewelry. “The Whydah was the first sunken pirate ship ever to be found,” writes Sandler in the book. “When a ship sinks, it becomes a time capsule. If it is salvaged, like the Whydah, it provides evidence of what ships were like and what life was like at the time of its sinking.” For months, Sandler immersed himself in books, accounts and letters about Sam Bellamy and the Whydah. For his books, he does all of the research himself, spending eight to 10 hours a day on one particular subject, which ultimately results in a shoebox of index cards with scribbled facts. Sandler, who writes every book by hand, says he tries as much as possible to let quotes and journal entries do the talking. “The whole secret to my success is that I have been able to have the ability and the desire to let the people in the story tell the story. As many times as I can have them speak, as long as it’s authentic and I’m not making it up, that’s what gives it its magic.”

APRIL 2017

Author Martin Sandler, sitting in his Cotuit home office, writes every book by hand and spends eight to 10 hours a day on one particular subject.

Sandler was not always the most comfortable under a sea of historical documents. “What I wanted to do more than anything else was be a baseball player,” he says. “I started in AAA and I was going to make the major leagues and I tore my shoulder apart, so they sent me home. I was never going to play again because back in those days, they didn’t know how to fix it permanently.” The New Bedford native read in the paper that there was an opening at Quincy Junior High School for a history teacher. “I got a job right before school started.” Sandler taught for 13 years at the junior high school, high school and college level. He was also named National Teacher of the Year. “That’s the best thing you can do in life is inspire young people,” he says. While he still teaches at Cape Cod Community College, his focus is writing and researching and he writes two to capecodmagazine.com

three books a year. “I still find time to play tennis, go to the movies and hang out,” says Sandler. “But I love what I do and you can’t beat my commute. I bounce up these stairs and I write eight, nine, 10 hours a day because there’s nothing I’d rather do.”

Trinity Christian Academy Marks Milestone in South Yarmouth. The school had two teachers: Roberta Lindquist, who taught nursery school, and Dorcas Thompson, who taught kindergarten. According to Haskell, the school began with less than 20 students. Construction at the academy’s current location on Mary Dunn Road in Hyannis began in 2003, and its doors opened to K-12 students in 2004. By 2006, an upper-level wing was added to include a science lab and an art room. The academy now boasts a creative arts center, music room and multi-purpose room, which were added in 2013.

COURTESY OF TRINIT Y CHRISTIAN ACADEMY

rinity Christian Academy in Hyannis has been providing a strong academic education based on historic Christianity to grades K-12 since 1967. However, director Peg Haskell says the academy is open to all denominations. “We’re committed to building leaders,” says Haskell, “and we’re community-service minded.” Seniors perform 100 hours of community service in their senior year, which can range from working with the homeless to mentoring younger students. Class sizes are small, with total enrollment of 162 students for the 2016-17 school year. Trinity’s founder, Helen MacGregor, is currently a resident of Brewster. “She was a mom,” says Haskell, “and a substitute teacher. She wanted to find a way to open a Christian school.” The academy opened on Jan. 17, 1967, as Trinity School of Cape Cod, leasing two buildings from the Evangelical Baptist Church

Welcome to Spring APRIL 1: Opening Day at Pilgrim Monument Founded in 1892 as the Cape Cod Pilgrim Memorial Association—Cape Cod’s oldest nonprofit organization— the Pilgrim Monument commemorates the Mayflower Pilgrims’ first landing in the New World in Provincetown in November 1620.

APRIL 1: Boxcar Lilies in concert Combining spine-tingling three-part harmony and savvy songwriting, the Boxcar Lilies have made a name for themselves with their signature mix of folk, country, blues and bluegrass-tinged Americana music. Though each member of the Massachusetts-based trio has a distinct and exceptional singing talent, Jenny Goodspeed (electric bass), Stephanie Marshall (washboard, cajón), and Susan Cattaneo (guitar) deftly weave their voices into a delicious whole—a sound that is sometimes delicate, sometimes gritty, but always innovative and soul-stirring.

APRIL 1: Woods Hole To Wellfleet film series presents “Revival: The Sam Bush Story” Not many musicians can lay claim to being the “father” of an entire genre of music. Sam Bush can. In “Revival: The Sam Bush Story,” audiences will experience the power of his musical journey. Widely considered the Father of Newgrass, Bush has become the icon of his own genre. Bush pioneered a new genre of music and inspired some of the world’s most famous bands and accomplished musicians. Yet for countless potential fans, the Father of Newgrass remains an unknown legend. In the film, noted musicians from Alison Krauss to John Oates say many of today’s biggest acts in Bluegrass, Newgrass, Americana and the jam band scene owe a debt of gratitude to Bush. $12. 7:30 p.m. Wellfleet Preservation Hall, 335 Main St., Wellfleet, 508349-1800, wellfleetpreservationhall.org

Kimberly Jane Sheerin’s jingling goblet—her best-selling item—has little clay balls baked inside a hollow bottom, causing the goblet to jingle when empty.

play their work and attract passersby. They make each product they sell at a studio tucked farther back behind the shed. The couple, both business and romantic partners, followed different paths to pottery. For Sheerin, it was love at first throw while taking a class in high school. “I fell in love with working on the wheel,” she says. “It was hard, though. You need a lot of patience and persistence.” While attending the University of New Hampshire, Sheerin majored in art and continued taking pottery classes. A fellowship awarded to Sheerin during her senior year allowed Sheerin to have her own studio. The experience changed her life. With a degree in hand, Sheerin moved to the Cape in 1996

with her then-husband. The following year, she opened The Barn Pottery and began what’s now a two-decade career teaching classes year-round for adults and kids, summer workshops and a special-needs class at the Falmouth Art Center. With six potting wheels, classes are intimate and students receive a lot of attention while shaping bowls, platters, plates, mugs and pitchers. “I really like to share my passion,” says Sheerin. She also started the Upper Cape Pottery Trail to highlight places in Bourne, Falmouth and Sandwich. Engley fell into pottery later in life. A journalist and editor for more than 25 years, he says he needed to do something

arts culture | ARTIST PROFILE “not dealing with reporters or computers.” For 15 years, he ran Hatchville Pottery in Falmouth out of his garage at a house he shared with his former wife. He joined Sheerin at Barn Pottery two years ago. Most of their work is fired in The Barn Pottery’s small, gas-fired kiln. What’s striking is Sheerin and Engley’s distinct decorating styles. Sheerin practices Sgraffito, which means “to scratch” in Italian, by applying layers of color to hard pottery, then scratches off parts of the layers to create contrasting images and texture which reveals the clay color beneath. Sheerin’s pottery designs reflect her interest in Middle Eastern and Indian art, decorated with hand-carved, clay stamps shaped like teardrops, fans and paisleys. Prices for Sheerin’s work range from $10 to $500. Her biggest seller, a jingling goblet ($30-$40), has little clay balls baked inside a hollow bottom, causing the goblet to jingle when empty. Engley’s decorations reflect his infatuation with “simpler, undecorated” Japanese and Korean pottery. Using a friend’s wood-fired kiln, he says, “I let the ashes do the decorations.” When fire flows through a wood-fired kiln, he explains, it creates “fly ash,” which often hits pots and sticks on, melt-

ing right into the glaze. The result is a speckled look that sometimes runs down in rivets. Engley’s “functional pottery for food and flowers”—teapots, cups, bowls, pie plates and flower pots—runs from $25 to $250. Each piece of pottery is stamped with the artist’s first initial and collaborated pieces have an intwined “H & K.” Is there any competition between the two? They laugh. “She always sells more than I do,” says Engley. “There’s no competition. We sell each other’s work. But we keep track,” he adds. “People come in and buy three to four pieces of hers and one of mine.” “Come by and see what we do. We’re always working on something. Shop local for a handmade gift or take a class,” says Sheerin. “It’s a good rainy day activity.” The Barn Pottery is located at 359 Barlows Landing Road, Pocasset, 508-380-3988, thebarnpottery.com. Kimberly Jane Sheerin and members of her family will exhibit their work in a variety of media in “Generations: The Art of Influence,” July 19-Aug. 2, at the Cultural Center of Cape Cod in South Yarmouth. The Barn Pottery is celebrating its 20th anniversary with an opening reception for the show, 5-7 p.m., on July 22.

This year, homeowners are spending their money on upgrading laundry rooms. Since we all spend a lot of time doing laundry, why not create a space that looks good? Also in style: Adding pops of color. The pantone color of the year is greenery, which seems to be an instant hit for those looking for a revitalizing, back-to-nature hue. Homeowners also desire mudrooms with benches, cubbies and and hooks and are turning to man-made materials such as tile options that look like hardwood flooring and engineered stones that closely resemble marble. An added bonus: Man-made options require less maintenance and they are more durable. Turn the page to read more about this year’s remodeling and renovating trends.

FOUR LOCAL COMPANIES DISCOVER THE INGREDIENTS TO RUNNING A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS In addition to making the very best granola, one owner in Osterville has created a cookie mix. A family-owned restaurant in Eastham features clusters flavored with ginger or espresso. A bakery in Mashpee creates gluten-free and grain-free mixtures, and finally, a café in Orleans puts an extra kick into its granola. Grin Hola, above, uses organic rolled oats, sweetened dried cranberries and almonds for its premium granola.


FOUR SISTERS GRANOLA CLUSTERS According to her three sisters, Erica Taber is the granola master. “I’m always trying to make it better, no matter what it is,” says Erica. The four sisters, Lori, Kris, Jamie and Erica, grew up 48

Bakery and Coffee Shop in Eastham in 1987. In the summer of 1989, Kris, the eldest, started working there and in November of that year, the sisters purchased the business with their parents’ help. Jamie, the second youngest, graduated from college in 1989 and began working at Hole in One, and subsequently the sisters opened a new location in Orleans. After Erica had her first child in the spring of 1995, she moved to the Cape. The entrepreneurial sisters soon expanded their business by purchasing the Fairway Restaurant in Eastham, right next to Hole in One, and they www.capecodmagazine.com

joined the two buildings. When customers began to ask for granola, Erica listened and started experimenting. Her original blend mixes cinnamon oatmeal clusters, cranberries and three types of nuts. Other flavors include snappy ginger, midnight chocolate and perfect duo with peanut butter and chocolate. “Erica likes chocolate,” says Jamie, “so one day she added it to the granola. She nailed it.” The granola is available at both Hole in One locations, at the Fairway Restaurant in North Eastham and at stores throughout the Cape.

at a coffee shop. She told her boss she wanted to be a baker. “They said, ‘you’re 14, you don’t know how to bake!’” But thanks to her grandmother, she did, and she was persistent. “They finally let me

become a baker’s assistant.” Subsequently, her mentor encouraged her to enroll in a certificate program at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. After finishing her training as a pastry chef, Miles moved to Boston where she lived for five years and worked at various restaurants. She returned to the Cape in her mid-20s and purchased White Lion Bakery in Mashpee in 2012, when her son, Standish, was five. “I really knew I had something when it was confirmed that Whole Foods wanted to pick us up,” says Miles. Whole Foods www.capecodmagazine.com

carries White Lion’s apple pie and original granola, baking mixes, four cookie flavors—dark chocolate walnut, tropical cookie, cranberry walnut, raisin and spice—and cheddar sea salt crackers. At White Lion, Miles’ recipes are gluten-free and grain-free, and customers began asking her to make granola. After experimenting, she came up with a recipe that met the criteria and was a tasty combination of coconut flakes, almonds, dates and honey. “We’re in 104 stores across New England and our goal is to go nationwide,” says Miles.

GRIN HOLA GRANOLA COMPANY Jason Warren, former owner of the Osterville Village Café, makes such good granola that when comedian Adam Sandler and his team were in Osterville filming a movie in 2011, Sandler had bags of it shipped home to California. Warren began experimenting with and perfecting granola recipes in the kitchen at his café. “I just kind of browsed recipes and tried to make them better,” he says. He experimented with different kinds and quantities of nuts, and came up with some pretty crunchy granola. “We use a little more nuts than most,” he admits. Warren sold the café in 2014, and has single-mindedly pursued granola. Owning a home-based business allows him to spend more time with his wife, Erin, who helps out with the 52

His cocoa-nutty variety includes organic coconut, whole and sliced almonds and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Other Grin Hola flavors feature peanut butter and jelly and apple pie. If that’s not enough to whet one’s appetite, Warren has created a cranberry-nut cookie mix based on his original granola flavor. Grin Hola is sold in stores and supermarkets throughout Massachusetts, including Fancy’s Market in Osterville; Organic Market in Mashpee and Dennisport; and Lambert’s in Centerville.

SUNBIRD GRANOLA Husband-and-wife team J’aime and Christian Sparrow spent 10 years in San Francisco—J’aime was a general manager for various restaurants, and Christian was a graphic designer. Shortly after they moved to the Cape in 2011, they started the Sunbird Food Truck in Wellfleet. She made all items with local and organic ingredients. In 2015, they opened Sunbird Kitchen in Orleans with their friend Karen Densmore (they still operate the food truck in the summer). The interior, designed by Christian, has a rustic feel, with menu items handwritten on chalkboards. “Our café is a place for guests to kick back and eat well,” says J’aime. “We have a lot of people working in our kitchen who are passionate about food.” Sunbird’s chef, Garrett Smythe, is the mastermind behind the café’s new curried cashew granola. Delivering an extra kick—a main ingredient is curry powder—the granola is served in a breakfast dish over Old Chatham sheep milk yogurt with mango puree, dried apricots and fresh herbs. Sunbird will expand its retail offerings as the business grows, so customers will soon be able to bring this unique taste home with them. Want to make Sunbird’s curried-cashew granola at home?

A

s New Englanders, it’s not uncommon for us to count down the days until summer and to cherish every day of warm weather. Time spent outside on Cape Cod is precious and summer months are fleeting. In order to take full advantage, people are moving their living spaces outside. It’s not necessarily a new concept, but these homeowners have gone a step further by adding kitchens, dining rooms and even living rooms. This trend is transforming backyards into entertainment spaces where nature is in full view.


PHOTOGRAPHY BY RANDALL PERRY The owners of a historic cottage in Chatham, originally built as a general store in 1870, hired Polhemus Savery DaSilva Architects Builders (PSD) to restore the home to its original charm. They also wanted to increase the living space with thoughtful additions, including a spacious and private outdoor living area. The outdoor space can be accessed through the French doors of the dining room, which open to an expansive fieldstone patio. Steps within the retaining wall lead down to the outdoor kitchen and dining area. The outdoor kitchen is housed within a pavilion, sheltering it from inclement weather, while lattice panels open for entertaining. The attractive cupola creates natural ventilation for the kitchen. The pergola extending off the pavilion creates a smooth transition from the kitchen to dining area. Since the 56

outdoor space is right off the indoor dining room, it allows for both indoor and outdoor entertaining. “The cottage is in a historic district, so the work that we added is respectful of the historic context but also has its own more contemporary character,” says John DaSilva, design principal at PSD. “It’s not just a historical re-creation. The pergola, for instance, is a little bit whimsical and the columns are created from a more modernist point of view.” It is a charming and secluded space that is perfect for a private gathering and vast enough, despite the small footprint, to have a large party.

Vojin and Diana Vujosevic, owners of Pain D’Avignon in Hyannis, bought their home in 2002 and completely renovated it. The interior is mostly modern with some traditional elements, but step outside and you are transported into another world. The colors of the outdoor space are earthy and warm. The openness of the space, covered with a pergola built by Vojin with help from a friend, offers an expansive view of Follins Pond. “We have been boating all our lives and we wanted that feel,” says Vojin. The couple entertains a lot, but even when they are not entertaining, they essentially live outdoors in the warmer months. It is where they hang out as a family and where they eat all their

The fireplace, flown in from Germany, weighs approximately 1,000 pounds and is made of reinforced concrete. The pergola conceals a retractable screen, which protects against the sun’s glare in the morning and insects at night. Since it’s retractable, the Vujosevics are able to enjoy the beauty of their surroundings without obstruction during the daylight hours. A few steps down and along an oyster shell walkway is

Philip and Bonnie Rosenthall’s home in North Chatham is their summer haven. The Rosenthalls purchased the home in 2013. It was built in 1840 as a Greek revival. It had been extensively renovated by the previous owners but little thought or energy was put into the outdoor living space or landscape. Bonnie grew up summering on the Cape. Her grandfather drove down to North Chatham from Cambridge in 1916 and bought property at the top of Cotchpinicut Road. Her parents built their summer retreat on Minister’s Point in the early 1960s, so it was only a matter of time before Bonnie found the right spot for her family. When the Rosenthalls decided to rehabilitate the outside of their house, they kept the natural landscape of the Cape and the local craftsmen in mind. With the help of Nickerson Tree and Landscape of Chatham as well as Wilkinson Ecological Design in Orleans, they were able to clean up the lawn, trees and garden and invest in indigenous plants. “Native plant material has been incorporated in the landscape to support the biodiversity of the neighborhood,” says Bonnie. “The bird life enjoys a plethora of beneficial berries and seeds and it has become a haven for ourselves and the wildlife we share it with.” Bonnie also raises bees, which benefit from the indigenous plants. “Our goal has been to expand and improve the outdoor space,” says Bonnie. To that end, the couple has created a space that rivals many indoor living and dining rooms. The focal point is the stone fireplace. The stone wall framing the fireplace extends to the grill and offers a perch as well as a workspace. Guests can mingle while cooking and dining or lounge by the hearth on the cushioned furniture. The Rosenthalls relied on Paul McCarthy at Zibrat & McCarthy Designs and LLP of Chatham, McNamara Bros., Inc. of Harwich, who created all the stonework with materials from Stonewood Products. Stello Construction of Chatham oversaw the entire project. And last, but certainly not least, Wesley Plank of Harwich made the hypertufa (a material that looks like cement but is much lighter and porous) planting boxes and the seashell clock adorning their mantel.

The beautiful bath house and adjoining pool pavilion on Martha’s Vineyard were designed and built completely separate from the main house on the property. In fact, the house and barns were to undergo a significant renovation when the outdoor living space was created, allowing Jill Neubauer of Jill Neubauer Architects Inc. to work with a clean slate and have a completely autonomous space. “I was given a great deal of architectural style freedom and allowed to do something modern and anchored,” says Neubauer. Her clients asked her to create something that would take the focus away from the unattractive house on the property that would eventually be renovated. In doing so, she created a beautiful, serene design that blends harmoniously with the landscape. The bath house and pool pavilion are located on a 35-acre equestrian farm. The bath house contains changing rooms, a bathroom and a prep kitchen while the 62

CAPE COD MAGAZINE

pavilion, open on all sides, contains living and dining spaces and a kitchen for the pool terrace. It is a dreamy space with curtains swaying in the summertime breeze and the infinity pool shimmering in the sunlight. As Neubauer pointed out, although it is an elegant space, it isn’t precious. It’s rugged and meant to weather. The tree columns have bronze lights that will patina, the countertops are Soapstone, and the kitchen faucet is made of cast bronze. Neubauer uses energy-efficient technologies, non-toxic material selections and sustainable products. Neubauer explains that the nature of the materials and the design are fully integrated. The landscape and structures blend well and feel seamless. The quiet design of the structures lets the site and building work together. It’s a true luxury retreat that gives a sense of being one with the earth.

turn gray over time. The flooring is mahogany while the outdoor lights are solid brass from Shiplights of Marblehead. The contractor for the outdoor shower was Village Restoration of West Falmouth. Neubauer may have said it best: “Clients have such deep, warm feelings of the Cape and outdoor showers really connect people with their landscape.” An Osterville shower by Polhemus Savery DaSilva is a more intricate design, as the structure serves many purposes. “The ‘wave’ or ‘whale’ shape was our idea in response to the client’s interest in doing something whimsical and playful, something more interesting than a simple shed, but still within the tradition of garden structures,” says John DaSilva. The four bays at the left end shroud air conditioning condensers while the middle four bays house garbage and recycling bins. The righthand three bays house the shower and dressing area. When someone showers, they can look through the round window, the “eye,” across the yard and see Osterville’s West Bay.

The outdoor shower is an icon of summer living on Cape Cod. It’s not baseball or the beach, but stepping into that open air shower after a day in the sun has to be right up there. These two showers are very different. One showcases a minimalist approach with practical design and the other is more whimsical and fun, while also being functional. A shower in West Falmouth was designed by Jill Neubauer Architects. The design is simple yet encompasses everything needed, including a place for towels and a clothesline. It is made of red cedar, which requires no maintenance and will

ore than 15 years ago, British sisters Pamela Adam and Sandra Arnold, along with Sandra’s husband Bernd, were looking to change careers … and their lifestyle. Pamela owned a travel business in Ohio specializing in cruises and custom itineraries and Sandra owned and operated a communications business in Manhattan. The sisters dreamed of buying and running a small hotel or inn as their parents had done many years ago in England, inspired by the love of the hospitality business they shared from an early age. They were looking to model what their family had accomplished with a charming seaside resort in England—but this time, on the Lower Cape. It was a brisk and sunny morning in January 2000 when they ventured here, driving on the south side of Route 28 along Pleasant Bay. When they reached the sign that reads, “Welcome to Orleans,” followed by a for sale sign at a hilltop inn, they knew they had found the perfect location for their new business. It met all of their criteria: a great view, property with ample space, a charming main building and enough seclusion to feel away from it all.

A Little Inn on Pleasant Bay in Orleans features beautiful English gardens and a Koi pond. Above, British sisters and owners Pamela Adam and Sandra Arnold with their Maltipoo Quigley.

“It’s the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the natural and unique beauty of Cape Cod.” That summer, the trio opened A Little Inn On Pleasant Bay. The house was built in 1798 and would need an inordinate amount of work to bring it to the splendor they had imagined. After the sale was complete, they stripped the building to its core. Slowly, their dream was coming to fruition. They now have nine luxuriously appointed rooms. Guests have access to the dock on Pleasant Bay and there is a small, sandy, pebbled beach perfect for swimming, kayaking and sailing. “It’s the perfect place to unwind and enjoy the natural and unique beauty of Cape Cod,” says Sandra Arnold. “The Little Inn is a magical oasis that our guests from around the world return to year after year.” One of the greatest pleasures of owning the inn is to see the guests getting acquainted at breakfast each morning while sharing their plans for the day. The lavish breakfasts include fresh fruit, bread, homemade jams, smoked fish, meat 70

and cheese, as well as a healthy, hot dish of the day. After breakfast, guests can meander to the backyard where they are greeted by the English gardens that Sandra has cultivated over the years, a symphony of meticulously maintained flowers. Sitting in the middle of a Koi pond is the sisters’ favorite feature—a beautiful water nymph. By early evening at 5, sherry is served on the front terrace overlooking the sun’s glow over Pleasant Bay. The three owners enjoy listening to guests share highlights and adventures of the day. Conversations are always lively and stimulating, since the inn’s clients come from all over the world. Hopefully, when guests return home, they take with them joyful memories of their stays at a little inn on the bay. A Little Inn On Pleasant Bay, 654 South Orleans Road, Orleans, 508255-0780 or 888-332-3351, alittleinnonpleasantbay.com. The inn is open May 5 through Oct. 8.

n a sunny morning in early July, fuchsia roses are at their gorgeous peak on the split-rail fence at John and Donna Hale Donovan’s West Harwich house overlooking Nantucket Sound. When the Donovans bought the property in 2010, the roses were already on the fence and the seawall, but “those roses needed serious rehabilitation,” says John. And while the previous owners had extensive foundation shrubs and a vegetable garden, they had no flowers. The predominant color of the original property was the green of grass, shrubs and leaves. The Donovans rebuilt the house in 2013. The heart of their home is a 1742 house relocated from Dennisport to its current

CAPE COD MAGAZINE

location in 1955, according to John. In the early days of their renovation, the Donovans added more roses on trellises on the front of the main house and on the façade of the guest house. They also added blue peegee hydrangea foundation plantings. But they still craved more color and additional planting beds. Enter landscape designer Maria Hickey of Maria Hickey & Associates of Falmouth. Donna discovered Hickey in a horticulture magazine and brought her on board in 2015. At the Donovans, Hickey encountered the challenge of all gardens with a lovely ocean view: How do you compete with the view without undermining it? Hickey solved that dilemma by adding color to the expanse of green. “We took it up 10 notches,” says Hickey.

As the U.S. flag flaps in the wind in the backyard, Hickey wades into the teardrop-shaped garden in the center of the crushed-shell turnaround drive. When Hickey planted this garden, she was challenged not only by the wind off the water, but by the need to keep sightlines low so as not to obstruct a neighbor’s view of the water. She decided on white phlox paniculata, which grows two to four feet, and dwarf Pia hydrangeas that will grow to only three feet. Here, too, are yellow lilies, purple salvia and pink spider plants. During her weekly visit to tidy up the colorful gardens, Hickey begins her rounds this hot morning in the front circular garden bed where there were once trees. Hickey’s crew removed a dead

www.capecodmagazine.com

tree and an evergreen from the front of the house. The result “was very dramatic,” she says. The circular garden is now dominated by white Shasta daisies, ornamental grasses, purple salvia, pink petunias and blue hydrangeas. Throughout the property, she has planted native perennials mixed with a few annuals. She has also created a long bloom season from May to November. Everywhere in the landscape are striking touches, such as a weeping cherry tree rooted inside a cobblestone circle and ornamental grasses swaying in the breeze against the white privacy fence. The curves of the garden beds contrast nicely with the straight lines of the architecture.

“It’s low-maintenance with the exception of when we have a heavy rain,” says Hickey, as she gathers fallen rose petals on the lawn. Hickey, a native of Falmouth, grew up loving plants. Her aunt Ann Buckley is a botanist who took the children on nature walks and encouraged them to keep notebooks and catalog plants— a habit Hickey now continues with her clients. Hickey’s formal training is in both landscape design and horticulture. After college, Hickey worked indoors for two years. She longed to get outdoors again and wanted to get back to her roots, so to speak. She took on a small, select group of clients, and as her two sons grew, her business expanded. Her sons, Patrick and Brendan, now work alongside her in the business.

Hickey opens a white gate under an arbor and enters the main lawn and gardens overlooking the water. One’s eyes fly to the distant roses. Hickey’s crewman Shawn Price is now crisscrossing the broad lawn on a sit-down mower that creates precise stripes in the grass. The view from four Adirondack chairs under a flagpole is of the breakwater with puffy white clouds overhead. In the distance, a sailboat bobs on the waves. And the reddish-pink of the roses on the fence graces the edge of the yard. “It’s like being the frame to a beautiful painting,” says Hickey, of the colorful flowers that she introduced to this garden.

Starting From Scratch At the new Chatham bakery The Bashful Tarte, located inside Mom & Pops Burgers (turn the page for profile), you might find owner Sara Sneed creating sand dollars and starfish out of modeling chocolate for a wedding cake or baking red velvet crinkle cookies. Sneed’s many confectionary talents go beyond her custom cakes for weddings and celebrations: She also makes sea salt caramel tartes, lemon bars and cookies (for sale at the front of Mom & Pops); breakfast items such as muffins and scones; buttermilk biscuits to bring home for dinner; and fruit, cream and specialty pies. Originally from Kansas City, where she owned a successful pie bakery, Sneed moved to Cape Cod after she met her husband, Christopher, through a mutual friend. The two settled in Harwich with their combined family of five children. The self-taught baker, who is constantly experimenting, admits she had never made specialty cakes before opening the Chatham bakery. “I would watch shows, it just looked like fun,” says Sneed. “Sometimes I work from pictures or things just pop in my head.” While she is baking, she is often singing or studying sheet music for local theater roles at Cape Cod Theatre Company in Harwich or The Academy Playhouse in Orleans. “Baking and singing go hand in hand,” says Sneed, whose nickname is Sunshine. “It’s another form of art and it’s how I am happiest.” The Bashful Tarte, 1603 Main St., Chatham, 774-209-1427, thebashfultarte.com capecodmagazine.com

patties its own special blend of meat in-house daily. Desserts are also available from The Bashful Tarte bakery, located inside the restaurant. “Our concept revolves around who we are,” says owner Tom Deegan, who points out that the pressed burger (or smash burger) is more West Coast-inspired and the steam cheeseburger originated in his hometown in Connecticut. His wife, Pelinda, moved from the Philippines to Southern California when she was 10, and Tom was born in Meriden, Connecticut. They met in San Francisco, got married, had a child and eventually settled in Chatham, where Tom spent his summers growing up. After working more than 20 years for a consulting firm, Tom desired a career change and wanted

e wanted this to be a cool gathering spot, whether it’s couples on a date or families hanging out,” says Tom Deegan, who opened Mom & Pops Burgers with his wife, Pelinda, in November. Located in the former Ollie’s restaurant on Main Street in Chatham, Mom & Pops is a fun, vibrant restaurant that offers fresh, delicious and high-quality food. Standout items include pressed and steamed burgers, bacon-wrapped hot dogs, chocolate, vanilla, swirl and coffee frappes, hand-cut fries and Mom’s homemade Lumpia—hand-rolled Filipino pork eggrolls served with sweet chili sauce—their best-selling specialty item. The restaurant butchers, grinds and


to explore his creative side. Since he had always enjoyed hosting parties, organizing and planning events, it was a natural transition for him to open a restaurant— and Pelinda backed him 100 percent. “I thought it was a good idea and a great community in which to open Mom & Pops,” says Pelinda, who works full time for Cape Abilities. During their search for a space, they connected with Jonathan Haffmans, the chef and owner of Vers, formerly located in the Chatham Orpheum Theater. “Chef Haffmans and his wife, Karen, were the difference makers,” says Tom. “They were a big part of opening Mom & Pops.” Once they settled on their location, the Deegans transformed it into a cool, modern space. They installed a new counter and wood floors, and painted a mural on the far right wall in a vintage postcard-style with icons such as the Golden Gate Bridge and the Fenway Citgo sign. Since Pelinda and Tom know several people in the industry on the West Coast, they turned to one of their good friends, Alvin Garcia, who owns a successful burger restaurant in San Francisco, for advice and direction. “We flew him out and consulted with him,” says Pelinda. “We did a year’s worth of testing—tasting sauces and different meats.” “The pressed burger changed me completely,” says Mom & Pops chef Nate Dress. “I don’t believe there is another burger for me. The standard set by Tom is extensive. It’s not just a burger.” The pressed burger is cooked on a highheat sear for 2-1/2 minutes, which creates a caramelization on top, resulting in a crisp and flavorful burger. The steamed burger, meanwhile, is cooked in steam for 15 minutes in a square metal box, and the aged cheddar is also steamed. Both are delicious—it’s simply a matter of preference. This summer, the Deegans are planning an enclosed picnic area where customers can enjoy their food, wine and beer outside. “People can eat, little kids can run around on the grass, and play cornhole,” says Tom. Sounds like the perfect gathering spot. capecodmagazine.com

Ever wonder what an apple pie would taste like as a truffle? Rose Rocque and her daughter Felicia were curious, so they created the golf ball-size pieffle: truffles filled with delicious ingredients like apple cider caramel, pumpkin pie and pecan pie, wrapped in crust and dipped in chocolate, then topped with caramel or bourbon-soaked sugared pecans. Not surprisingly, the mouth-watering invention won first place for Judge’s Choice Dessert at the 2016 New England Food Festival in Plymouth. The pieffle is one of many sweet treats sold through their family business, Elixir Confections, co-owned by Rose and her husband, Marc Rocque. Word of Elixir has spread over the past couple of years among sweettoothed locals, area businesses and brides and grooms seeking desserts for their wedding receptions—many drawn to the company by the signature colorful designs that decorate each bite-size creation, from anchors to red hearts and lips for Valentine’s Day. In addition to pieffles, they offer special chocolate assortments by the season and holiday: buttery shortbread, peanut butter shortbread, chocolate chip cookies and full-size pies. But perhaps even sweeter than their wares is the family’s passion for what they do. “Chocolate itself is such a beautiful thing, and everything about it is going to be different in each part of the world,” says Felicia. “People don’t talk about chocolate and where it comes from; we want to bring that passion for it to them.”—Lannan M.

‘Window View’ “In this painting, I tried to capture the way a dog’s gaze captures our attention. The slight tilt of the head suggests curiosity. My paint strokes portray the solid form and furriness of the dog, and the contact of the paws on the windowsill without being overly realistic. Dogs and paint. Two of my favorite things.” — Andrea Petitto oil | 8 x 8, framed 11.5 x 11.5 | $325 Addison Art Gallery, 43 South Orleans Road, Orleans, 508-255-6200, addisonart.com
