  • perfect place to stay on the cape!

    "we had an amazing time at the cape and this was the perfect cottage for us. It fit the laid back vibe we were looking for and you can't help but relax upon arrival. It was cozy and inviting and you don't feel like you need to be careful as not to break something or track beach sand across the floor. But there are 5 bedrooms so you can be with a group and not feel totally on top of one another. you are just steps from the beach and can hear the ocean from the screened in porch. Kids could play all day at the beach, but you're so close to the cottage you can come back for food and bathroom breaks. plenty to do in the area as well from mini golf to go karts to bike riding. the neighbors are all friendly and it's quiet so you can really relax. This is isn't luxury, but if you want luxury, you should probally not be on the cape! highly reccommend this place. we will come again. and again. and then again."

    "What a beautiful home! My family and I were very comfortable and enjoyed our stay very much. There was plenty of room and everything was clean and well-maintained. The owner was extremely helpful and quick to respond to questions. It was well stocked with every necessity which made our packing much easier. Jim, the owner, sent lots of brochures and detailed instructions which helped us immensely. I highly recommend this home, and hope to visit again."

  • walkers landing

    "This home was perfect for our active family of 5 plus our golden retriever. It was clean and nicely furnished but not so dear that we had to worry about the dog or kids. Grocery stores nearby made it just like home. From the house you can walk to Rock harbor and the little wharf and beach there. Local people said they allow dogs there after 4pm so we went with that. Because of the hurricane, fireworks were delayed so we hot to see those our week as well. Skaket and Nauset are short drives, a bike trail with rental shops is also very near in the town. The kids keep asking if we can go back so it was a hit. Miriam and Lou have a TV, DVD, VCR and there is WiFi. There are board games in a cabinet. The backyard is big and perfect for throwing ball around while something is grilling up. The house is one level there are 2 low wooden steps to get in. So if mobility is an issue for you or a pet, don't worry! I was looking for a low key seaside vacation with the kids, like I had growing up visiting my grandma on Long Island. This was very much like that. Hope to get a week again next year!"

  • Great vacation rental

    "We spent 4 days and nights in this lovely home. You could tell. That the owners used it for themselves. The kitchen had everything a dedicated cook could need. Thebeds were very comfortable. All the equipment was of high quality. The short walk to the beach was through a field of flowers. We got a pass for the national parks and visited several cape seashore areas while there. As we rented only 10 days before going and the owner was wonderfully helpful in setting this up. I would highly recommend this as a vacation stay and look forward to returning."

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.
