A recipe from Joe and Annemarie Charbonneau of Handkerchief Shoals Inn

Handkerchief Shoals Inn has been in operation since the late 60’s and passers by have been lured by the sparkling pool and close proximity to Red River beach. The doors were opened wide to new managers Joe and Annemarie Charbonneau in 2010 who now make the Inn their home. Together with owners Terrie and Craig Borden, they bring over 25 years of hospitality and exceptional customer service to one of only a handful of classic Cape Cod Motel’s. Handkerchief Shoals Inn is a true survivor. Gone is the garish nautical 1960’s signage, replaced with a beautiful carved welcoming sign. The Shoals has been give new life and a new look. Inside and outside, this Motel / Inn has been reborn with a breath of fresh Cape Cod air. Major improvements and upgrading have been done and plans for the future look very bright. The Harwich Chamber of Commerce recently honored Handkerchief Shoals with the President’s Beautification Award for outstanding improvements and enhanced visual contributions to the charm and character of Harwich. Joe and Annemarie use a foolproof recipe for the success of any great property;

Teamwork Clean, clean and clean some more Always keep improving Love people Possess a sense of humor And above all treat every guest just the way you would want to be treated!
