Meet Innkeeper, Sally Knisely, owner and on-site manager of the Midway Motel & Cottages in North Eastham. Sally was born in Western Massachusetts and came to the Cape in 1983 with her husband Ron. They bought the Midway Motel & Cottages and immediately began to upgrade the quality of the accommodations. Prior to purchasing the Midway, Sally held the position of Assistant to the President of Hampshire College in Amherst, Massachusetts. When Ron passed away, Sally was committed to continuing to run the motel that she and Ron had worked so hard to build. Sally has been charming guests at the Midway for 35 years.
