The interior draws from the many varying colors of the trees outside the home—from off-white on a dry, sunny day to warm purple after a fresh rain shower. The lighting fixtures hang above the island as a perfect homage to Neubauer’s artful design.

“People don’t always realize how many great places there are in Falmouth,” says Judi. “We feel like we hit the lottery.” On a beautiful sunny day, with people in the living room enjoying snacks together, she and Larry like to open up the doors and windows and bask in the natural connection between inside and out, listening to the waves crash along the shore. Judi refers to it as a great gift that Neubauer gave them—being able to share this place they love so much with all the people they care about.

“My husband always jokes, ‘This is the best bed & breakfast around, and the best part is you don’t get billed,” laughs Judi. And then on top of it all, there’s Larry’s favorite part—the outdoor pizza oven.
