Centrally located in the heart of the
Cape Cod Canal Region, Buzzards Bay is one of nine
villages in the Town of Bourne, home of the Massachusetts
Maritime Academy, the world-famous "Hoist"
Railroad Bridge, and Otis Air Force Base, just 55 miles
from Boston and 46 miles from Providence, Rhode Island.
Fox Run Bed and Breakfast makes a great
home base for day trips to all Cape Cod towns and
attractions as well as to the islands of Nantucket and
Nearby attractions include Plymouth
Rock and Plantation as well as whale watching, harbor and
canal cruises, fishing, a water park, golf, and local free
concerts in the park.
Surrounded by 23 acres of conservation
land and an active cranberry bog, Fox Run Bed and
Breakfast is registered with the National Wildlife
Federation's Backyard Habitat Program, a special treat for
nature and bird lovers.
Fox Run Bed and Breakfast offers three
guest rooms, each tastefully decorated with antiques
and/or period pieces. The lodging accommodations are
air-conditioned and have overhead paddle fans. For your
convenience, your hosts provide a small refrigerator,
hairdryers, iron and ironing board, clock radios, and, if
needed, a variety of other "forgotten items".
The Continental-plus breakfast menu
changes daily and is served in the main dining room or, in
nicer weather, on the deck from 8:00 to 9:00 a.m. Special
breakfast times can be arranged, as can special dietary
needs with advance notice. The Inn's muffins, breads, and
other delicious breakfast foods are all homemade. For
those of you who rise a little earlier than everyone else,
there's always a fresh pot of coffee.
A small library provides a variety of
reading material. The guests' living room, with its fireplace
and cable television, offers a relaxing place to catch up with
the daily news or to meet up with other guests. Off the living
room are sliding doors to the deck with plenty of chairs for
watching the antics of the birds at the feeders and water
fountain. Relaxing in the gazebo with that morning coffee, an
afternoon's cool drink, or a glass of wine in the evening is a
favorite "place to be".
Come swim in beaches fed by the Gulf
Stream. Sample the food at some of the finest restaurants in
New England. The area's lobster and seafood are
world-renowned. Watch the corps of engineers as they supervise
thousands of vessels that pass along the Canal's continuously
changing tides. Fish, walk, bike, in-line skate, or picnic
along its seven miles of paved and grass-lined shores.
