  • Excellent location and beautiful home!

    "Today is our last day at this gorgeous home and we want to thank the owner, Harry for having us stay a very memorable week. It was my family of 4 and my sister's family of four that stayed all week. With 4 kids being all under four, the house was safe, roomy and fun! We visited a different beach everyday and found Crosby Lanfing to be the best, especially at low tide. The beach near this home was nice but a bit rocky. The beach is walking distance, maybe 15 min. Kitchen was very well stocked with spices, pans, dishes, drinkware, bar utensils, etc. Garage was stocked with plenty of beach chairs, beach cart, BBQ grill, etc. Beds were comfy and house was clean. Central air works very well and for chilly nights, the gas fireplace was a plus! We will definetly be renting this home again!"

  • Love it!

    "Perfect cottage that is right in the same neighborhood that I spent my summers in when I was a kid. 5 minute walking distance or less to the BEST beach in New England. The cottage itself is so cute and decorated so nicely and so homey like, we felt so comfortable there. Everything we needed was there and more. People that are complaining about the size of this college are crazy because, you can see the size of the cottage in the pictures and also by the square feet listed on this site so that is a moot point. The deck is awesome and the back yard is big too. Barbara even has charcoal there for you for the grill. Thanks for all of the little decorating details and supplies provided Barbara, they made our stay extra special."

  • Fun and relaxing vacation at the Cape!

    "Our family of four loves staying here! The house is very comfortable, and the kitchen is newly updated. The street is quiet and very family-friendly, while still close to a lot of great restaurants and shops. We loved being able to walk to the beach (no need to buy a beach parking permit!) and the water is much warmer on this part of the Cape than others, so we were all able to go swimming. If you are a beach lover, you will be perfectly content to hang out on the beautiful beach, but there is plenty for others to do as well - kayaking, parasailing, shopping, antiquing, biking and more are all available just a few minutes away. We are so glad we got to spend our vacation in West Harwich!"

  • Wonderful time with family!

    "My husband, 3 year old daughter, and I spent a week here at the end of July. The condo was spotlessly clean and exactly as pictured. Gerry was super easy to communicate with as we had never rented a condo in this fashion before. He helped walk us through the process. The location is amazing-about 5 minutes to P-Town. We drove our car here from the Toronto area and drove into town most days to eat or explore. There is lots of parking in central P-Town and we never had a problem finding a spot there or at the condo. In front of the condo is a great beach just over the dunes. Our daughter loved swimming there and collecting shells at both low and high tide. She also enjoyed watching all the kites flown and visiting the nearby oyster farm. There is a square of sand directly in front of the condo that would also make a good play area for kids. We also enjoyed sitting on the deck enjoying coffee, meals, or just the view. A very comfortable spot that we would recommend to everyone."

Cape Cod Travel Tips

When locals talk about Cape Cod, it often sounds like a Dr. Seuss book: Lower cape, upper cape, outer cape, inner cape. While it’s true that each part of the cape has its own unique characteristics, the most important thing to know as a visitor is that Cape Cod offers the freshest seafood and the most perfect, natural escape from the hustle and bustle.

Top Attractions

The biggest draw in Cape Cod is the relaxed lifestyle buttressed by a deep connection with nature.

The Cape Cod National Seashore makes up about 40 miles of seashore on the outer cape - all the way from Provincetown on the upper cape to Chatham on the lower. It includes 68 square miles of woods, lakes, ponds and beaches. Cahoon Hollow Beach in Wellfleet on the Atlantic side is simply beautiful. Come here to relax and grab a drink and some fresh clams at the Beachcomber bar. Marconi Beach, also in Wellfleet, features more crowds but stunning sunsets. Head to the beach at Chatham on the lower cape to tour the quaint Chatham Lighthouse. There are also plenty of bayside beaches in Truro and Provincetown.

As it is situated in a unique coastal and bay ecosystem, Cape Cod has several important wildlife sanctuaries that are great for an educational visit. Schedule in a visit to Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, the Wellfleet Audubon Sanctuary or Monomoy National Wildlife Refuge in Chatham to learn about the local ecosystem and protection efforts.

What To Do

If you’re on the upper cape, check out the Pilgrim Monument and Provincetown Museum for a dose of interesting history. On the inner cape catch a film at the old-timey Wellfleet Drive-In Theatre and grab some ice cream to go with at the nearby Wellfleet Dairy Bar and Grill. Wine-lovers won’t want to miss a visit to the fabulous 5-acre Truro Vineyards where you can sample Chardonnay, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. If you’re feeling adventurous and want to go where presidents in the past have been, pay a visit to the John F. Kennedy Memorial in Hyannis and then head to Falmouth to take a ride on The Island Queen Ferry to Martha’s Vineyard - a favorite island of presidents through the ages.

Dining and Shopping

It goes without saying that they know how to do seafood right on the cape. If you’re on the upper cape, eat at the The Lobster Pot, a landmark seafood shack in Provincetown, which serves up no-nonsense deliciousness. You’ll have great views of MacMillan Wharf and can delight in the classics like steamed littlenecks, lobster rolls and clam chowder. A more upscale P-town eatery with a stunning view is Fanizzi’s By the Sea, which serves up classics with an Italian twist.

If you’re on the lower or mid cape, delicious meals can be had at Blackfish in Truro, the Chatham Pier Fish Market (where you can also do some seal watching), Arnold’s Lobster and Clam Bar in Eastham and the delightfully named The Wicked Oyster in Wellfleet.

The hands-down best place for shopping on the Cape is Commercial Street in Provincetown. You can find everything here from upscale boutiques, shops selling artisanal crafts and more funky options like Marine Specialties, Inc. a kooky surplus store, or The Shell Shop, which sells tens of thousands of unique shells.

Bring your swimsuit, sunscreen and appetite in preparation for the perfect Cape Cod vacation.
