  • A Treasure !

    "My husband and I recently spent one month in this lovely home in Sandwich, Mass. First of all, I can't recommend the location highly enough. Despite being mobility challenged I found it an easy walk to an historic church for Sunday services, the Sandwich Glass Museum, the one hundred year old (parts of it) Sandwich Library, Tea Room, Coffee Shops, Dexter's Grist Mill, the Hoxie House, Shawme Pond to swan gaze, the Daniel Webster Inn and other restaurants for meals. It's only about an hour twenty to the furthest point on the Cape and approximately the same to Boston. Day trips abound from this location, but you are poised to be off Cape in a matter of minutes! The House. Very large and comfortable (great mattress on the King downstairs) with an interesting and eclectic collection of books, music and furnishings. This house just feels good. I spent many happy hours on the back porch with a book, watching the mill stream flow past. Large, lush, green backyard, and I adored the stream and its residents. The Owner. We have found Bob to be a delight to work with. One time in our entire month long stay we had some concerns about the washing machine. Within a couple of hours Bob and his handyman were out and answered my concerns. Done. I would highly recommend this home and the town it is located in. I am already planning on going back next fall with my grandchildren in tow!"

  • Pleasant stay

    "Rating Details: I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was more than happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My wife and two young girls (ages 6 and 4) generally enjoyed our stay here. These were several minor annoyances (the TV did not work and the lights did not work in one of the bedrooms when we arrived and there were no hooks for towels and limited space to put things down in the bathroom) but we were able to find the circuit breakers the next morning for the bedroom lights and the rental agent was very helpful in having the TV fixed promptly). One suggestion is to have a brief explanation of the operation of the TV and other equipment in the house for convenience and well as some information on where one could go for groceries. We did not spend much time in the place itself (breakfast two of four mornings and no lunches or dinners), but found the area a pleasant one when we were there. The accompanying picture accurately captures the most attractive view from the place. The area was also quiet and relaxing and we found the beds very comfortable."

  • Stunning home!

    "This home is beautifully decorated and impeccably maintained. It is the perfect setting for a large family or group. The common areas comfortable accomodate a group and the house also provides ample private spaces to relax in. The proximity to town makes it easy for all to come and go as they please."

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.
