Convenient location to small grocery, beach, favorite ice cream place & a few other shops while still offering seclusion & privacy. The interior elegantly designed and appointed & filled w/ owner's personal art, photography, books, etc. rare in a vacation rental all make for a comfortable stay. Happy to recommend it."

  • Fantastic first visit to the Cape

    "This was a family vacation for 12 people and our first time on Cape Cod. Wonderful historic old house with a nice modern kitchen. Plenty of space, fit us all comfortably. Great location - walking distance to the beach and a short drive into town. Would definitely stay there again."

  • A perfect family vacation

    "We had another amazing time at this house. We were four families living in the house and it did not feel crowded. Everyone had space to do what they wanted to do - read, play board games, talk, watch tv. And all six adults had a spacious kind size bed to sleep in while our 6 children (from three different families) slept in the two bunk bed rooms based on gender. The large kitchen gave us plenty of room to cook large family style meals every night that we often ate on the deck overlooking the yard and water. We also ate inside in the large dining room and kitchen. Again, the house easily accommodated us. The house is on a cove that provides a fun playground for kids of all ages. We kayaked, swam, sailed, and enjoyed all sorts of water activities. We also enjoyed the very close by West Dennis Beach and sometimes drove to other Cape Beaches. This is the third time we have been to the house and we look forward to coming back next year!"

  • Crocker Tavern is a Gem

    "This past fall, my family and I had a reunion at the Crocker Tavern, and my stay left me with nothing but joyful and pleasant memories. I stayed at the tavern with my three children, my parents, my sister/her husband and her four kids, and my brother/his wife and his two kids. My father, a history buff, originally discovered the tavern in search of a historically rich home large enough for our immediate family to occupy. He instantaneously fell in love with the property, and the rest of us quickly followed. There are two bedrooms downstairs and four on the second floor, each named after a famous historical figure. I had the pleasure of residing in the room on the first floor by the living room, named after Cornelius Crocker. My family fit comfortably between the different rooms, all of which had room for cots and cradles for the younger members of the family. Additionally, there are five full baths, eliminating the issue of managing bathroom time. We all were able to have our privacy in our separate rooms, but we also LOVED being able to spend time together in the larger gathering rooms such as the living room and the dining room. When the reunion took place, we invited people into the tavern itself, but kept the primary center of activity in the adorable barn beside the house. We were able to set up chairs and tables with food inside of it, and tents in the beautiful yard. The backyard of the property is adorable, with beautiful flora and a charming little patio. The owners of this property have done a fabulous job of decorating each and every room uniquely while preserving the charming historical elements of the home. Despite the back-in-time ambiance, the house is equipped with modern appliances. The kitchen has a stove, dishwasher, oven, microwave, refrigerator, plenty of pots and pans, and every utensil we could possibly need. This modern touch extends to the bedrooms with plenty of electrical sockets and a few televisions. Another wonderful part of the Crocker Tavern is the wonderful location in Barnstable. Right down the street are several pleasant surprises: an adorable little market with a large stock of groceries, two delicious restaurants, a liquor store, a yoga studio, a library, and more. My family had a lovely time taking morning walks together down to the gorgeous beach less than a mile away. The kids were so excited to see all of the ships at the pier and everyone enjoyed the large and peaceful beach."

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.
