  • Fun and charming

    "We loved our visit to Chatham and this lovely home. We were 3 couples invited to a wedding in Chatham and decided to rent the Isaac Bea Young 1840 House and use it as our base. We couldn't have been more pleased. The home was so well located, near all the quaint shops and restaurants. The kitchen was well equipped and the gardens were delightful. Janet even invited us to have some of her home-grown tomatoes. Yummy! But perhaps the most unexpected and best feature of the home was the outdoor shower. We loved it. If our travels take us to Cape Cod again, we will certainly look into renting this home. Thank you, Janet, for everything."

  • Stunning home, amazing location!

    "A group of friends and I stayed at this house for a long weekend, to see a friend get married at the Chatham Bars Inn. The house was more than we could have asked for! We cooked meals, grilled, played yard games, walked downtown, to the beach, a couple of us biked the Cape and saw cranberry bogs...it was a jam packed weekend. We were even able to walk to the wedding as it was just down the street! The house itself was spacious, clean and well equipped with anything you might need (beach chairs, kitchen utensils, etc.). Couldn't have asked for a better situation or host. Thank you!"

  • What A Beautiful Spot!

    "What this unit lacks in overall esthetic, it more than makes up for in charm and location. The fact that it is at the end of the building provides a feeling of privacy and a view that can't be beat. We so enjoyed walking down to the marina at the dead end, along the marsh trails, and kayaking across the inlet to what felt like our own private stretch of beach - gorgeous! The unit itself was tastefully decorated and provided any and all amenities that we could want or need, including beach chairs and towels. This really helped with keeping the packing to a minimum! We had as many as 7 people stay overnight very comfortably and also had the luck of the upstairs unit remaining unoccupied most of the week. But even when someone arrived for the last few days of our stay, all we heard was some floor creaking here and there. Bonnie was super helpful and responsive and if I wasn't getting a new dog, I would definitely rent this again next Summer. This is a very special place!"

  • October Vacation in Cape Cod 2014

    "Our fall trip to Cape Cod and Boston was planned hastily in mid-September thus being too late to take advantage of our time share ownership. So we elected to search out VRBOs and fortunately for us we came upon the Norris cottage. We enjoyed our stay in the area very much and plan to return in the future. The cottage was ideal, just as pictured, close proximity to the beach and to the downtown area. It lived up to our expectations having selected the property based on the very thorough description and photos available. It is well equipped with amenities and was very clean and well maintained. While the cottage could easily accommodate 6 people we found it just right for the two of us. It's a good location for excursions to Provincetown, to Martha's Vineyard (ferry dock is about 10 minutes drive away) and even a day trip into Boston is doable. It's a great vacation spot and being able to stay at the cottage made our trip so much more enjoyable. Would do it again."

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.
