  • Wonderful rental home for our Berkshires vacation

    "We spent four days at this beautiful, quiet, well-maintained and peaceful home in the Berkshires. The house was perfectly located just a few minutes from downtown Great Barrington, yet on a quiet, private and beautiful country lane. We could see the beautiful fall foliage right from the back deck. The beds were extremely comfortable, and the furnishings were all very clean. Before and during our trip, we appreciated that the owner, Ron, was friendly and prompt with all communication. Before our arrival, he left us farm fresh eggs, kale, salad greens, flowers, local coffee, local milk, and local chocolate. Such a nice touch. And all were delicious! The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we could possibly need, and the owner provided excellent restaurant recommendations as well. We would not hesitate to stay at this home again! Thank you!"

  • Perfect family vacation

    "We've booked the property for the past two summers and are already planning our third! It's tastefully decorated throughout, and the owners have stocked the home for a beach holiday. Everything you need: beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels and a ton of toys- even boogie boards! - the owners have thought of everything. The outdoor, enclosed shower was perfect for both kids and adults returning from the beach. If you do have kids, the enclosed backyard was PERFECT for us! We could send them out there worry free during dinner prep time. Out-of-towners might not know but this house is on the best stretch of the beach. You will not be disappointed with this property!"

  • Perfect Winter Weekend!

    "I celebrated my birthday here last weekend with 13 other people and had an amazing time staying at the Priscilla House! Everything in the house was so pretty, clean, and spacious- it is obvious a lot of love & care are put into this house to make sure guests have an amazing experience! Peggy, the caretaker, was so kind and very fast in responding to texts with any questions I had! With 14 of us in the house no one felt over crowded... Actually, everyone was commenting on how much space we had! The kitchen is fully stocked- we cooked multiple times and were equipped with every utensil you could think of! The town of Chatham is picturesque and perfect! And with the location of the house right on Main Street you have walking access to all shops/galleries/restaurants/bars and a 2 min drive (5-10 min walk) to the beach. I've visited Cape Cod in the summer several times, but going in the winter was beautiful & charming (Christmas tree lighting, shopping, and bundled up visits to beach!). I can't imagine a better birthday weekend!"

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.
