Recent Cape Cod reviews

  • Great for Family Reunion

    "For a large family reunion it worked out very well. The kayaking was very popular and the proximity to beach was great. Having only 2 bathrooms for 13 people was a little challenging but we adjusted. The upstairs with the dining room was airy and had a good view. The bedrooms could use updating."

  • Relaxing, fun Provincetown vacation!

    "This house meets everything in its description and more. It's clean and roomy - great for our family of four plus one dog. The neighborhood is private yet close to everything. We took the three minute walk to The Beach Market every morning for a newspaper. The most fun Yoga class at The Boatslip on Commercial Street was an easy fifteen minute walk away. We walked The Breakwater, went to Herring Cove Beach (a very short drive away) to swim and see the gorgeous sunset, made delicious meals in the very well-stocked kitchen (a call to Dave regarding an empty gas BBQ canister was answered promptly), and ate at several great restaurants on Commercial Street (walked to all). For grocery, Stop and Shop is walkable or a five minute drive away. We've visited Provincetown many times before but this was our first week-long stay and we learned to love it on a whole new level. We look forward to our next stay and would definitely stay in Matthew's beautiful home again."

  • Amazing Week

    "Great spot! Very quiet and secluded. But yet very close to required stores and shops. House is much bigger than what pictures show. Very authentic and beautiful though bathrooms would need upgrading just a bit. Private beach is the best I've seen on the East Coast. Owners are real friendly. Overall a great experience."

  • Year after year, this cottage continues to delight us

    "We come back year after year, and each time we are struck by how welcoming this cottage is; the owners think of many details to make their guests feel welcome and comfortable! We’ve never stayed at a cottage that was so well maintained, with so many thoughtful touches. The owners go out of their way to make sure we have everything we need. When we bring guests or family, they, too, are blown away by the water views, the sunsets, the pristine private saltwater beach on Follins Pond, the private dock, and the proximity to everything (beaches, parks, Cape Cod Baseball League games, mini golf, antique stores, great restaurants, supermarkets...). There are plenty of windows in the cottage, with lovely cross breezes. It’s fantastic to walk out of your bedroom in the morning and be greeted by a wall of windows looking out at the water! We love hanging out on the spacious deck, and the screened gazebo (with ceiling fan and light) is a cool private outdoor room -- and a great retreat on rainy days. The table in the inside dining area is a draw for board games, and there’s plenty of room to eat at the kitchen island or on the deck if the game lasts into mealtime. All of the common areas are open and flow into each other, and the water view is a constant backdrop. The space is flexible, and you can be as private or as communal you wish. One thing that stands out about this cottage is that it can easily accommodate a lot of people without feeling crowded, but it also feels perfect when only two or three of us stay there. We also really appreciate the gas grill; washer and drier; out-of-the-way clothesline for wet towels; two full bathrooms; and the private outdoor shower by the back door. And of course the fact that our dog is welcome! The owners are perfect hosts. They’re very responsive and helpful, but also totally respect our privacy. It’s been 3 weeks since we left, and we’re still feeling refreshed and rejuvenated by our latest stay there. We’ll be back!"

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.
