Recent Cape Cod reviews

  • Unique and beautifully appointed

    "Over the years my family has rented numerous summer homes in Wellfleet. For five years, we owned one. This house rates as a favorite experience. The house is unique, modern, clean, and extremely well-appointed. The two patios, one with a table that would seat eight easily and the other in a sunny spot with comfortable lounge chairs, look down a wooded hillside. I saw hummingbirds, an owl (a real one, not the ones placed to discourage predators), and many songbirds. The perennial gardens are beautiful. The owners have furnished and decorated the house tastefully and eclectically. While everything you need is there, everything you don't need is not (for example, the medicine cabinets, bureau drawers, and bedroom closets are empty and ready for your stuff). It is extremely private and yet conveniently located because you can get to Wellfleet town and harbor on quiet back roads without getting on Route 6. Part of the house's charm is the unique architecture. The concrete floors are cool and clean. Natural light and cooling breezes come through the skylights in nearly every room. This means that if you are light sensitive you will wake with the morning light. My guess is that some people will love this and some people will not. We very much enjoyed our stay!"

  • Unforgettable Vacation!

    "We rented "3 By the Sea" for a family reunion for my 70th birthday. We had 9 kids ranging in age from 13 yrs. to 8 mos. and 7 adults. Everyone had a wonderful time here...there was everything we could possibly need and more! We ate outside every nite in the pavilion and sat around the firepit cooking S'mores! We road our bikes to the bay beaches daily and it was just a short car ride over to the ocean beaches. We would come back here in a heartbeat for another get together. Communicating with the owner was easy and they are very pleasant people to deal with. Thanks to "3 By the Sea" we had a memorable vacation for our whole family!"

  • Why we keep coming back

    "Of all the places on the Cape, Wellfleet is the most special. And of all the special places in Wellfleet, this house on Great Pond has become our most treasured. While the house itself is a striking bit of architecture with all the amenities you need, it is also in keeping with its rustic setting. The experience is all about nature and being on the pond. Where else can you step off your deck and take a midnight paddle under a full moon? If you have kids, you can watch them swim out to the dock while preparing dinner in the kitchen. If it's the beach you're after, it's just a mile away. If you want to head to town, you can get there in minutes without having to negotiate Rte. 6. This is the perfect house with responsive, attentive hosts."

  • Very private, beautiful views, lovingly cared for cottage.

    "This is a really lovely spot. We have stayed here two years in a row now (my husband, myself, and our young daughter). The way the house is situated is very private, with a good sized deck looking out on a beautiful landscape right by Scorton's Creek. The beach is right there, and was never crowded even in August. You can walk around a little peninsula from the beach side to the creek side (or the other way around), and at low tide the sand bars are stunning, and great fun to explore. You can walk out very far into the ocean at low tide and the water is only up to your knees. The house is very nicely cared for, and we felt right at home. It is a small cottage, but it has high ceilings and, with the deck, and the beach right there we did not feel cramped. We love this place."

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.
