  • Wonderful week in a GREAT house!

    "We just returned from a wonderful week in this beautiful house. We couldn't have been happier with our choice. Our beach vacations are usually in New Jersey and we thought we'd try Cape Cod for a change. It did not disappoint nor did the recommendations of Mike and Jan for restaurants, shopping on Main Street, and enjoying the beach! The neighborhood is very quiet but just minutes away from the beach and/or shopping/dining on Main Street. The ferry to Martha's Vineyard is a short walk away and it takes you right to Edgartown which is a beautiful town to see. The description of the house was more than accurate. We were very comfortable and felt very much at home! When we return for another Cape Cod vacation, we hope to stay here again! Thanks again Mike and Jan!"

  • Great House, great location, room for extended family

    "My wife and I plus 3 adult sons, two daughters in law and 4 grandchildren, 7 and under spent a week at the house on Upper Mill Pond last July and have already committed to a week in July, 2015. How could we not return to that great house. Our extended family….11 people including 7 adults and four children, had the greatest week, making full use of all the house and location had to offer. The pond was terrific and lakefront made it easy to boat, swim and just play in the water, with no need to leave the property unless we wanted more to explore. The bay and the ocean were minutes away, and those that cared to, took full advantage of our proximity to both; as well as an easy ride up to Nickerson State Park for all the park had to offer. The best though, was the house. Enough privacy for 3 families, yet enough group space for all of us to enjoy each other’s company. We cooked and ate “in” just about every night. As the unofficial barbecue chef I appreciated the full size plus grill; better than my Weber at home. We ate out on the deck every night and we fed friends visiting for the day from Eastham; all of us at one improvised banquet table on the deck……with room to spare. My friends were duly impressed and were very happy to hear we will be back next July. Can you blame them? The kitchen was fully stocked and made food prep for the gang a breeze. The extra refrigerator allowed us to keep everything we needed in the ready. We could not have asked for more. Looking forward to our stay next summer. Marc G., White Plains, NY"

  • Love this house!

    "My husband and I just returned from a delightful week on Chappaquiddick, having spent it at a home we have rented several times in the past but have been unable to visit for several years (we are now empty nesters!). This house is a perfect get-away: it is very comfortable, well-equipped and well-maintained, with views that are lovely, spectacular sunsets from the deck, and an easy walk to Katama Bay. The island is quiet with lots of beach and woods for walks, and a very short ferry ride, by car to explore Martha's Vineyard, or as walk-on passengers if you just want a nice dinner and some fun shopping in lovely Edgartown. You can tell the owners love their home, and we are grateful that they rent this beautiful place, allowing us to create terrific memories of our vacation."

  • In love with Chatham

    "I just wanted to drop you a quick note and tell you thank you for letting Bill and me use your beautiful home. We had such a fantastic time in Chatham and are looking forward to going back. There may be a sudden influx of Wisconsinites in the Cape Cod area, after we have told everyone that will listen how much we loved it. Again, Thank you. Mary Zimmermann"

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.
