  • Perfect Getaway

    "We needed a house to rent because we were going up to Zoar Outdoor to go rock climbing, white water rafting and zip lining. This house was in a great location (10-15 minutes from Zoar) and very easy to get to from RT 91. It is a very spacious home that was built in the 1700s and gives you that warm, at-home feeling. The owner was fantastic through the whole process. She was very accommodating and enjoyable to talk to. We got to meet her our second night up there and she couldn't have been more sweet. Everybody in that area was so friendly and inviting which made the trip that much more enjoyable. I highly recommend this house for all of the aforementioned reasons above as well as the price. It was a fantastic price for the seven people we had staying there. It was much cheaper than a hotel/motel and much more accommodating with a refrigerator, oven, microwave, dishwasher, separate bedrooms, places to socialize inside and out, and the fantastic scenery. I can't say enough nice things about this place and the owner."

  • Secluded Hilltop Cottage

    "We stayed for 5 days and enjoyed the rental completely. It has wonderful views of the ocean and is very private and quiet. The house was very clean and we had use of kayaks to go into Chilmark Pond. The house was close to beaches as well. The only negative we had was that there was no television service (although they have a dvd player and we rented movies from the library). Just basic cable would have been nice. Also a plus was that they allowed our dog to come along. We are hoping to go back next year for a whole week."

  • Beautiful home...

    "We spent the week at the house as our home base and enjoyed it incredibly. Plenty of room, plenty of amenities, and conveniently located! The outdoor shower was pure magic! Perfect for two families with small children or an older couple looking to escape. Out of the crowds near the beach, but yet a short drive to many great beaches (we found Chapin this year and are HOOKED). We are looking forward to renting again next season!"

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.
