  • Perfect Cape Cod Cottage

    "My family of five stayed at this beautiful cottage for the week and we absolutely loved it! The cottage is well cared for, and had everything we were looking for....we especially enjoyed sitting down by the pond. My kids loved swimming and kayaking all over the pond. I would definitely recommend this adorable cottage to friends and family in the future. Ted was extremely friendly and great with communications. He always responded to our inquiries very quickly. This is definitely a place to consider for your next Cape Cod vacation...My family and I are lucky to have found such a great cottage to hang out and get away. We are looking forward to coming back to the cottage next year."

  • Great for extended family

    "As an extended family of 9, we needed a place to stay in Bourne for a family wedding weekend. Captain Jack's was the perfect place for us to be together. House was immaculate with plenty of room to spread out. Clean and very comfortable. Owner responded to all questions in a timely fashion and I received security deposit immediately after our stay. I would highly recommend Captain Jack's to other families and friends."

  • Amazing Week!

    "What an amazing vacation! The house is perfectly situated on Bucks Pond at the end of a dead end street. The private beach is so relaxing. We enjoyed swimming, snorkeling--even pulling the beach chairs down to the private beach to read with our feet in the warm water. We kayaked daily, whether it be just around the pond, or to one of the association beaches for more swimming. Our daughters now believe that a pond/lake is better than the ocean! The wildlife was wonderful as well. My 11-year-old future ornithologist was thrilled to see a cormorant, an osprey, Canada geese, catbirds, and many other songbirds during the course of the week. We did day trips on the Cape Cod Rail Trial, to Coast Guard Beach, and to Wellfleet and Orleans. The deck was wonderful for our nightly grilling and relaxing--and NO MOSQUITOS! The house was so sunny and bright, had a large table, large living room, huge master bedroom and a well-appointed kitchen. We definitely plan to return!"

  • Wonderful home on the beach!

    "This was our best summer vacation ever! We’ve been coming to the Cape each summer since the mid 1970’s when our three kids were little, and even smaller. This year we returned with everyone, including 6 grandchildren, ages 12, 11, 10, 7, 5, and 1 ½. The house was the perfect setting for our family get together with plenty of private space for the little ones to sleep and play. Excellent amenities from the multitude of bathrooms, the outdoor shower, wonderful gathering areas inside and out for enjoying a meal and conversation, and the most excellent hot tub! We love water sports, and thoroughly enjoyed the private beach for swimming, launching the kayaks, exploring the great fishing spots just on the other side of the big breakwater, and bringing the Whaler Montauk around from the slip at the Hyannis Marina. And you can walk to tons of waterfront activities, ferries to the Islands, excellent restaurants, and shopping 'till you drop! But best of all, the house is magnificent, both the interior design and layout, and the enormous deck and beautiful lawn, perfect for playing whiffle ball. The place is truly a home, a special home with so many delightful surprises, such as the personalized artwork, the beautiful tile display of the Cape in the kitchen, and the tile view in the bathroom of the backyard and ocean. Warm, inviting places like this don’t just happen. They are created by very special people. We only hope we can return to this wonderful place 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.
