  • Perfect vacation house in Chatham

    "My husband and I went down for a few days to Chatham and stayed in this wonderful home. It has 3 bedrooms , a finished family room with a sleep sofa and a finished basement with options for sleeping and 2 full baths. The kitchen is well equipped, Two large TV sets, wifi and lots of books. We could walk into town for lunch or dinner and shopping. It was great because they are currently filming a new Disney movie at the lighthouse and there is lots of excitement in the town. I would absolutely rent in again"

  • Warm & cozy cottage

    "My husband and I were delighted to find this cozy, clean cottage for our recent fall get away. The home is beautifully decorated with a nice, soft nautical feel and is centrally located mid cape with easy access to restaurants and shops. Gray's Beach is about a mile away with its beautiful views along the boardwalk. This home was a perfect size for our getaway, but would be just as nice and comfortable for 4 with its 2 bathrooms and 2 private bedrooms. The fireplace was a nice touch too! Pat was a real pleasure to work with and I appreciated her prompt replies to my e-mail messages. We hope to come back next summer & stay a bit longer! Thank you Pat & Bob for sharing your beautiful cottage with us! As you can probably tell, we loved it!"

  • Enjoying the good times

    "Everyday, people coming or going to the beach would ask how we got so lucky to be right in front of the beach. I'd answer «We chose well!». Through homeAway, we found this beautiful home for our vacations. The pictures looked good. The location too. Communications with the owners were perfect. Too bad we never got to meet them in person. Their home is just the perfect vacation spot. We were 6, four adults and two kids, and the three bedrooms made it a perfect stay. Bed were good and the nights pretty quiet. With a view directly on the Nantucket sound, from the front yard or the summer lounge in front, and a cute semi-private beach just in front, where there were never too many people, all was ideal. The beach is really ten steps away. We'd go swim without towels. And the outdoor shower was so useful for washing away salt and sand. Note that the water is quite warm and, somedays, has a bit of alga floating around in it. The house has a good kitchen with gas stove, dishwasher, and all that is needed. Plenty of room in the backyard to hold a BBQ feast and play frisbee. There are many attractions nearby, for kids and grown-ups: mini-golf, karting and arcades; shops and beautiful sceneries. And even an excellent seafood restaurant at walking distance. All in all, we had a multi-generation vacation that was exactly what we hoped for and more. Thank you. We will go back!"

  • Love it!

    "Perfect cottage that is right in the same neighborhood that I spent my summers in when I was a kid. 5 minute walking distance or less to the BEST beach in New England. The cottage itself is so cute and decorated so nicely and so homey like, we felt so comfortable there. Everything we needed was there and more. People that are complaining about the size of this college are crazy because, you can see the size of the cottage in the pictures and also by the square feet listed on this site so that is a moot point. The deck is awesome and the back yard is big too. Barbara even has charcoal there for you for the grill. Thanks for all of the little decorating details and supplies provided Barbara, they made our stay extra special."

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.
