Fantastic State Park in the middle of Brewster

/ Cape Cod Bed & Breakfast, Captain Freeman Inn, Nickerson State Park

by Donna Cain, innkeeper and owner

We are so lucky to have a wonderful State Park just up the street from the Captain Freeman Inn. Nickerson State Park is a 1,900-acre state park with sandy soil and scrub pines surrounding many kettle ponds.

Harrison was very excited when we entered the park as he knew a nice long walk was fast approaching.

We love to go to the far end of the park and walk around Higgins pond.

The walk around the lake is always pristine, quiet and magical.

It’s always fun when walking after a snow storm to see that you are the first to walk the trail…
