  • Beautiful Beach Home

    "WOW - this beautiful home was absolutely perfect for our stay in the Boston area. I, my wife and two teenage kids had a great time visiting the many historical sites in the region and this home was in the perfect location for that. Staying here and using the ferry to get across the harbor to Boston was ideal. Getting back to the house with no worries of traffic was even better. With the beach just a few steps from the house you're on the beach with time to relax and enjoy the stay. Hull is a unique location that allows you to stay in a peaceful, relaxing home on the beach and this was the best of the best! I've rented many homes over the years, stateside and abroad, thru VRBO and have never found a better place. If you're staying in the Boston area this is the only home to consider!"

  • Amazing Cape Cod House

    "We stayed here as two families with a 2 y/o, 6 month old, and twin 9 month old children. House was the perfect size. The house is very nice, spacious and clean. The backyard complete with pool was fantastic. I have never been to the Cape before and was blown away by how great it is for kids, particularly the bay side beach in Orleans. I wish it was a little closer to NYC and we'd be there a few times a summer. Orleans is also perfect location for day trips to Province Town, Hyanis and Chatam. There is a good playground close by at the middle school in downtown Orleans."

  • Splendid cottage in spectacular setting

    "This was our third time renting this wonderful cottage in Mayflower Point. When we discovered it two years ago, we knew that we would be back every year. The setting couldn't be better - easy access to Orleans, yet tucked into the woods where the only sounds you hear are the birds that sing such lovely songs every morning. The grounds are gorgeous, with a stunning view of the water and just enough clearing to allow the sun to shine through the many windows. The cottage has EVERYTHING anyone could want to make the stay comfortable. If you rent here, I am sure you will agree that it will become your home that you look forward to coming back to every day and, perhaps, every year. We will definitely be here the same week in August until we retire to the Cape. We were fortunate to have an absolutely splendid week of weather that allowed us to take full advantage of the many activities on the Cape. These include a bike ride (30+ miles) on the Cape Cod Rail Trail, kayaking for three hours on the Town Cove in Orleans (rented kayaks at Goose Hummock), two splendid hikes - one in the Punkhorns and another on the Great Island Trail in Wellfleet. We certainly slept well every night! Other less physical activities included the block party in Orleans, strolling through the town of Chatham, dining in great restaurants in Orleans and beyond, and attending Pops in the Park, a wonderful annual event in Orleans."

  • Awesome weekend away!

    "My boyfriend and I had so much fun up in Becket! We live about 40 minutes away from here, so it was a quick ride up! Friday night we went to the Dream Away Lodge and had an excellent meal! We kayaked the Stockbridge Bowl on Saturday and enjoyed a fire out back over looking the lake! The house was immaculate and had everything we needed for cooking! The view from the deck onto the lake is great! Hopefully we can make our way back there next year!"

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.
