We are Dana & Guenther Weinkopf, your innkeepers.
Dana is a transplant from beautiful Santa Barbara, California, where she was born and raised. An avid traveler with extensive knowledge of the Balkan and Middle East, Dana financed her hobby as well as her college education with work in some of Santa Barbara’s best restaurants and inns.
Guenther, who shares the same love for adventurous traveling, comes from Salzburg, Austria, his family has been in the hotel and restaruant business for more than 200 years. He takes great pride in the fact that his great, great, great, grandfather was a friend of W. A. Mozart and spent many days riding and hunting with him. After studying Hotel and Tourism administration in Vienna, Guenther worked in many different countries before settling in Chatham Cape Cod.
Both Dana & Guenther have a tremendous love and interest in the history and culture of the early settlers and the native Americans of this region. They enjoy sharing their wealth of local information, folklore and anecdotes with their guests.
When not at the Queen Anne, they have their hands full with their daughter Madeleine, son William, two bossy cats, and Dakota ” the wonder dog”. They enjoy summerstock theater, gallery browsing, local seafood and California wines.
The Weinkopfs have owned the inn for 30 years and hope to be here for many more years, welcoming guests from all over the world.
