BEGINNINGS:
This beautiful colonial was designed and built as a Bed & Breakfast (circa 1993) by Eurnice "Ernie" Ford, your host, and husband John. What we really wanted was an old house, maybe a Captain's house by the sea, with charm and history. We soon discovered that the "string" on our "shoe string budget" wasn't long enough. Alas, not by the sea, but sometimes a peek at the lake across the street. Charming is our well thought-out floor plan, with spacious guest-rooms and the history is in the making-come and be part of that.
LOCATION - LOCATION - LOCATION
Fox Run Bed & Breakfast is located in Buzzards Bay, one of nine villages in the Town of Bourne. Bourne is the first town on Cape Cod. Geographically, Fox Run makes the perfect home base for day trips on Cape Cod or the Islands. Just 55 miles from Boston. 46 miles to Rhode Island. In less then 20 minutes you can be visiting Plymouth Rock, Whale Watching or seeing the Mayflower II. If it's the Islands you want, (Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard) parking for the ferry is only minutes away. Warm water beaches, great restaurants, quaint little shops, downtown Hyannis, Falmouth by the Sea, Historic Sandwich and the Victorian Village of Onset are only minutes from Fox Run, the heart of the Cape Cod Canal Region.
The Massachusetts Maritime Academy, the unique "Hoist" Railroad Bridge and the world famous "Cape Cod Canal" with its 7 miles of walking, biking and roller-blade trails. Bring the bikes and roller blades, we are less than a mile from the canal and, if fishing is your sport, don't forget the fishing rods.

We offer 3 very gracious guest-rooms tastefully decorated with antiques and/or period pieces.
The Foxwood Room has a queen-size bed. A step back in time is the focal point of this Turn of the Century room. The chest was grandmother's, purchased the year she was born (1900). The room is done in shades of plum.

The Foxboro Room, with its King-size bed is done romantically in "French - Provincial" with a hand painted chest and mirror. On a clear day, you can see "Lilly the Cow" grazing in the tall grass of the forest.

The Fox Tale Room, has twin beds, the theme of this rooms is "Old Cape Cod," with its antique bow-front oak dresser and hand carved sea birds. Shades of forest green with a hint of cranberry and creams are the colors of this room. A comfortable chair by the window faces the front of the house with a view of the "flower bed" and a 3-season view of the pond and cranberry bog.

The upstairs foyer has a small library offering a variety of reading material, with a special shelf of old paperbacks which we encourage to "take one home."

Our formal dining room boasts a 6 1/2 foot, turn of the century (1900-1920) oak server. Extra lighting makes this room a great place to play games, catch up on letter writing or plan your next days adventures.

Guest living room, with comfortable seating for talking by the fireplace or catching up on current events on our cable TV. The living room opens onto the deck, which faces the water fountain, gardens and bird feeders. We are registered with the National Wildlife Federation's Backyard Habitat Program.

RESIDENT PET:

Lilly, our Bichon Poodle mix, is confined to our living quarters, but sometimes has been known to escape. Bashful, small but spoiled, she is only looking for the same things we want, a hug, a kiss or something to eat.
MAKE TIME FOR:
Just a few minutes away-less than 5 miles, you will find Warm Water Beaches (fresh and salt water), Miniature Golf, Golf, a Canal Cruise, Fishing, Water Slide, Shopping and Antique Shops. Free Concerts on the Common in Buzzards Bay and Onset (Thursday & Friday nights).
A PLACE FOR ALL SEASONS:
Summer is not the only time to enjoy Cape Cod.
Our Fall Foliage is spectacular, cranberry harvesting is underway, the beaches are yours for the taking and you can still get a great New England Seafood dinner.

Winters are mild enough to catch a round of golf. Join in on of the many Christmas Strolls throughout the Cape. Watch the waves crashing along the shoreline from some distant storm at sea. Visit a Lighthouse. Shop the after season bargains at the malls and outlets.

Spring speaks for herself, from the new grass to the budding of the trees. Stroll along the canal. The herring are running. The seals are sunning themselves along coastal rocks. The antique shops are dusting off their "Open" signs.

Join us at Fox Run and sample the seasons.
