  • Beachy-Chic Escape

    "Another fantastic Nantucket vacation at the Cabot Cottage - our repeat visit says it all! The cottage is the ideal tucked away home base to bike to the beach, relax on the deck or take the short trip to local attractions. Owners are very friendly & accommodating and have stylishly updated/maintained the cottage - equipped with everything for a beach vacation. Great yard for lawn games and the cottage layout is the perfect mix of common space and private bedrooms - love hearing the ocean from your room. Lots of fond summer memories for our family!"

  • Second summer was as wonderful as the first!

    "After staying at Kate's home for a week last summer, my boyfriend and I returned this summer for another week and once again had an amazing time. The cottage is located a short walk from the Chatham Fish Pier, where we strolled every day to see the seals and pick up fresh seafood. We also walked into town for meals at the Chatham Squire and to see the band play on Friday night. The Chatham Lighthouse is only about a mile and a half away, and other beaches (both ocean- and bay-side) are a short drive. Kate keeps her lovely home fully stocked with everything you need to cook, and she also furnishes the house with bed linens and towels. She even provides backpack beach chairs, a cooler, and a sun umbrella for trips to the beach. It was so sad to leave Kate's this past weekend, but only because it was our home for yet another perfect week in Chatham. We can't wait until next year!"

  • Long Time Cape Vacationers

    "Our group has been vacationing on the Cape together for the past 35 years. We have rented a variety of homes in both Brewster & Eastham. This is by far one of the best places we have rented in recent history. The home was extremely clean & well maintained. The layout is perfect for a large gathering. The location makes for quick trips into Orleans, Eastham & Brewster. The owners were easy to contact and gracious. Thank you for letting us enjoy your home!"

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.
