Recent Cape Cod reviews

  • Great Weekend!

    "We had a group of 12 stay here for a golf weekend and I am so glad we chose this house. Upon arrival you realize that the pictures do not do this beautiful home justice. The place was spotless. The open floor plan is perfect for entertaining a large group as everyone can congregate in the kitchen / family room area as well as on the massive deck, which happens to overlook the lake. As many have mentioned already, the secluded location is great because you really do not have to worry about bothering anyone. With that said, do not mistake “secluded” for isolated. You are only 5-10 minutes from downtown Hyannis. Mark, the owner, was overly accommodating and just very easy to deal with. It was a great weekend and I look forward to reserving it again next year."

  • Great house!

    "We rented the house with another family and it was great! The house had plenty of space. Big backyard and close to supermarket, good restaurants and most of the great beaches in the area. Definitely would rent this house again."

  • Excellent Stay!!

    "This house was everything they said it was and then some. The pictures didn't do it justice. The layout was perfect for a family spending time on the beach. The outdoor shower was very private located at ground level inside the basement or garage. Come up the back steps to leave laundry at the laundry room and move on to the bedrooms/bathrooms. The living space is upstairs with a very airy feel and a view of the sea. The kitchen was more than adequate with all the utensils and dishes you would need. Plenty of space for everyone to spread out an relax also. The beach also was such a pleasure! There is a beautiful sand bar that is exposed at low tide. We had a lot of fun looking for sand dollars and making massive sand castles on the sand bar. As the tide came in, it was fascinating for us Illinoisans to watch the tide swallow them up. We also walked down past the public beach to the rocks extending out into the water and did some crabbing. This was also a new experience for my kids. We easily caught fourteen crabs with pieces of chicken sraps and string. We could have caught lots more had we stayed longer, but the kids were ready to get back to the quieter beach near our house. It was still a neat experience for the kids to watch the crabs and then release them back into the water. We took a whale watch out of Barnstable one morning also. It was a short 15-20 min drive and the whales performed beautifully. All in all, a very relaxing and memorable time!! I would recommend this place to anyone and especially families with children."

  • The perfect place

    "We have stayed on Depot Pond two Summers in a row now and we think it is fantastic. The house is spacious, well equipped and very comfortable. The location is spectacular, situated on a fresh water kettle pond and on the Bike Trail with easy access to ocean and bay beaches. I can't imagine a better place to stay."

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.
