Recent Cape Cod reviews

  • Fantastic vacation rental

    "For the third consecutive year, we've used this home for our family reunion. After renting several different Falmouth properties, this is by far our favourite. Spacious garden, quiet lane, 1 min walk to beach are main advantages. Home is very comfortable, excellent condition. No problem sleeping 16 of us comfortably. Owner does excellent job maintaining and improving the home from year to year, and is always reachable for small details. We highly recommend this property, especially for larger families with young kids!"

  • Fantastic vacation house

    "Our Great Gatsby is a great vacation house. We celebrated a milestone birthday by inviting many extended family members from three generations. Whether young or old, everyone found plenty to do at the house and in the area. The walk to the beach is very peaceful and takes about 15 minutes. There is a tennis court just a walk or short drive away. The ocean view gives a very nice Cape Cod feel. The house is very livable and convenient, with nice features and furnishings. Caretaking staff were superb -- always helpful, friendly, and never intrusive."

  • Couldn't be better!

    "This cottage is indeed charming and contemporary, with all that is needed for a peaceful, relaxing vacation. Situated in the woods, it's a short walk to ponds and/or town, and a quick drive to beaches. Enjoy a quiet meal or adult beverage away from the crowd on the deck. Suzanne and Curt are so easy to deal with, and are beyond flexible. They accommodated my family, absolute last minute, for a very reasonable price and stress/worry free. I can't say enough about them, or their very lovely cottage. I highly recommend them and their home for a great vacation rental. I definitely will be back."

  • Wonderful location. Home had all the amenities.

    "What a great place to revisit memories with our adult children and their children. The home is well appointed and having the bikes/helmets and kayaks at our disposal was appreciated. The pool table was also used by most of us at some point in our stay. The tv and surround sound was a little tough to figure out at first. We would strongly recommend this home for large families seeking a place for vacation."

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.
