Recent Cape Cod reviews

  • Susan from DE

    "The mornings & evenings on the lake are more beautiful than photos. It's a great place if you just want to relax and do nothing, or for those who want to venture out to explore new places within a short drive, there are places to go. We recently spent a week there, had family coming in from Hawaii to attend a wedding in NYC. It was convenient, flying into Boston airport (just hour & few min away), others driving from NH, DE & MD. It was a last minute plan, however worked out really well for all. We were fortunate the dates we needed were available. The canoe and pedal boat on the lake was great for all ages. Bikes, life jackets, beach chairs, sand buckets and toys, etc. were there as well. A hidden treasure, was the beautiful little beach on the lake, only steps away through little path to left of property. The Jacuzzi on the deck was a welcome relaxation at the end of a busy day and gas grill for cooking outdoors. There are 2 fireplaces in the home, which imagine would be cozy during the late fall and winter months. If you are planning to do a lot of biking, recommend you have vehicle with bike rack. The immediate roads near house do not have shoulders on road for biking or walking, not the safest. However, there is a wonderful walking, and bike trail at the Cape Canal (6.5 miles on one side and 7 miles on other), which is only 10 minute drive from the house as need to transport the bikes. You will see locals transporting their bikes as well. Local fish market has great lobster & seafood, if prefer cooking at home. Martha's Vineyard is only short drive to a ferry and worth the trip if have not been. If your plan is to attend events and sightseeing, would recommend check online "events calendars" in the area. Boston is a great city to visit as well, lots of history and good seafood - Quincy market has plenty lobster and chowder. I have not stayed in a hotel for a vacation since 2008. Discovered the only way to vacation is staying in a vacation rental, especially if more than 2 people traveling. It's much more like being at home, yet enjoying all the amenities without the outrageous hotel prices, fees & taxes. This home on "Picture Lake" is a great getaway for families with children or just adults. The owner, Ellen was very helpful and accommodating. Our family is grateful we had the opportunity to create some wonderful memories we will cherish forever ! Thank you Ellen for sharing your "Home Away From Home" with us."

  • Wonderful home on the beach!

    "This was our best summer vacation ever! We’ve been coming to the Cape each summer since the mid 1970’s when our three kids were little, and even smaller. This year we returned with everyone, including 6 grandchildren, ages 12, 11, 10, 7, 5, and 1 ½. The house was the perfect setting for our family get together with plenty of private space for the little ones to sleep and play. Excellent amenities from the multitude of bathrooms, the outdoor shower, wonderful gathering areas inside and out for enjoying a meal and conversation, and the most excellent hot tub! We love water sports, and thoroughly enjoyed the private beach for swimming, launching the kayaks, exploring the great fishing spots just on the other side of the big breakwater, and bringing the Whaler Montauk around from the slip at the Hyannis Marina. And you can walk to tons of waterfront activities, ferries to the Islands, excellent restaurants, and shopping 'till you drop! But best of all, the house is magnificent, both the interior design and layout, and the enormous deck and beautiful lawn, perfect for playing whiffle ball. The place is truly a home, a special home with so many delightful surprises, such as the personalized artwork, the beautiful tile display of the Cape in the kitchen, and the tile view in the bathroom of the backyard and ocean. Warm, inviting places like this don’t just happen. They are created by very special people. We only hope we can return to this wonderful place next year."

  • A Perfect Stay On The Cape

    "Just a wonderful place to stay in a superb location for our anniversary holiday. We had a thoroughly enjoyable and comfortable stay here for a week in October. The quiet beach is seconds away and lovely for a walk first thing in the morning or last thing in the evening to catch the sun going down. Within easy reach of Chatham but far enough away to have your own space. Scott is both a wonderful host and pleasant to deal with (as well as his mother!). Many thanks and thoroughly recommended by us!"

  • Fabulous rental!!

    "My sister and I rented this beautiful home with my 2 teenaged daughters. We aboslutely loved it. Not only was the house great and new,but every possible amenity was there. The owners could not have been any nicer and responsive. The property is beautifully landscaped,too and there is a swimming pool and tennis court a few steps away. The only thing is that we did not want to go out! There is even a lovely patio. My older daughter is a runner and she ran to Harding's Beach and to town easily every day. Could not have asked for a more lovely rental!"

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.
