The Orleans Inn was featured in an article "ORLEANS INN'S SHADOWY GUESTS TO STAR IN TV SHOW" Cape Cod Times, Susan Milton.

A five-dollar bill, signed and framed, hangs on the wall above the concierge desk at the Orleans Inn. For the Maas family, it's a reminder of how the inn almost didn't make it and of the clientele who saved it.
The Orleans Inn occupies a former grand, private, Victorian sea captain’s mansion located on a cove near the rotary that takes travelers from the arm at Wellfleet, Eastham and Truro out to the fist that is Provincetown. It’s taller than any other structures around, with a distinctive mansard roof and cupola, the latter built originally to welcome home Captain Aaron Snow from his voyages in the late 1800s.
