  • Repeat Visitors!

    "This was our 4th year staying in Jim’s lovely home, and our praises continue. We have always been impressed with how well-cared for the condo is. It was as pristine this year as it was the first and every other year in between. Although there seems to be every amenity available that one could think of, each year Jim has included something new to make our stay even more comfortable – if that’s possible. And as many others have mentioned, the location is perfect. No precious time of our one week vacation is wasted getting to beaches, shops, or restaurants which are minutes away. We have been coming to this part of the Cape for many years, and this is the one and only place we’ve cared to rent again and again, and we hope to be able to continue this tradition. Thanks to Jim for the opportunity (and the champagne!) and to Jo Lynn for being so welcoming."

  • Beautiful home in a wonderful location!

    "My family just returned from a week at this property and we and such a stellar time. The house is beautiful with an open concept and many massive porches and outdoor spaces. A lovely bay beach is a short walk (5 minutes or less) away. It has all the wonderful amenities that you could want in a vacation home, beautiful and well equipped kitchen, beach chairs and towels, steam shower, 3 different eating spaces."

  • Great family vacation home

    "Our family of 11 (6 adults, 5 kids) converged here from OH, VA, and PA for a fabulous week-long vacation. Chatham is a charming town that is easily accessible from this property by car or by bike path. We enjoyed dinners, shopping, ice cream, and running downtown. But we didn't really have to leave this property because our entire family was so perfectly entertained here. The kids played non-stop on the dock and small beach, then took the kayak and canoes out on the calm lake. They were particularly fond of the floating dock which they could swim or row to, and jump off. Giggles and smiles all day. We adults were able to relax on the various decks or in the house while the kids entertained one another. Sunsets on Lover's Lake are gorgeous. This house and property are so unique and charming, the town's original ice house, with its various sitting rooms, beautiful gardens, open kitchen and dining space, plus 5 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. It's obvious the family who owns this home has spent many wonderful years loving and caring for it, with its antiques, paintings, games and puzzles. And the owner made herself totally accessible to us for any questions, and was interested in making us completely comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped with modern ammenities, and we were offered free wi-fi. If we come back to Cape Cod, we will definitely rent this house again!"

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.
