Old Houses, Anyone?

Here at Chez Sven, we love old houses, so it is with enthusiasm that we recommend the Wellfleet Historical Society’s Annual House Tour, which will take place next Sunday, August 17th, from 11 to 4. For more information go here. The tour will feature six homes, some old, some new. Tickets are $15 and will be available at the museum on Main Street, as well as at the Left Bank Gallery, Jules Besch, Abiyoyo, and the information booth out on Route 6. The tour requires driving and walking this year. I have often thought of having our old house be on the tour, but have been too busy organizing other things to make it a priority. We always called the above house on Holbrook the Gingerbread House. I believe it is on the 2008 tour. The house to the right is not. You can see the outside by walking along the shore from Mayo Beach. But to view the interior of Wellfleet's most spectacular old house of all …. yes, book a room at Chez Sven!
