Recent Cape Cod reviews

  • 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."

  • Wonderful Lake House

    "Our best rental at the Cape. For the first time lots of space for everyone to enjoy their own pursuits. With active 6 and 5 year old the playroom was a blessing. They loved their own space. Three members of our group brought bikes and were delighted to find bike trails easily accessible from the house. The kayaks were an enormous success with the young adults and two kids – who loved to be ferried out on trips. In fact the kids requested we bring them their own kayaks next year. We enjoyed the lake beach so much we did not venture out to an ocean beach. My husband and I – the oldies in the group enjoyed walks and sitting by the lake in the early A.M. with our books. We had a quiet half hour or so before the rest of the family got into gear. Lots of nearby activities for the rainy days (in our second week). No one was bored during the entire two weeks. We will definitely return."

  • Our Wonderful Cape Cod Vacation

    "We have decided that we are going to spend a week (or more?) on Cape Cod every summer from here on out. This was our first trip to this terrific place. Even though our large group made enough memories in one week to last a lifetime, we want more!! It's not easy to get family from all over the country to travel far and want to do it again. What wonderful family time we had at this special place - so comfortable, clean, impressively stocked and well thought out. The beds were comfy, the amenities perfect, the water view delightful, and the property was spacious enough inside and out to gather or to spread out. We loved the ocean harbor view from the deck, the national seashore beaches, fishing for stripers & blues, kayaking, biking, games in the yard, peaceful walks, and swimming at incredible Hardings Beach! All in all, wonderful! We have found our new go-to place!"

  • Monomoscoy Island retreat, Mashpee, Massachusetts

    "Heavenly if you like birds, fresh air, nature, trees and woods. The sun rises above the river over this peaceful property. The quietness and solitude are palpable and restful. Set back from the riverfront is a large beautiful yard, many tall pine trees and a big well crafted wooden house. In wintertime, it was an oasis of tranquility. The house is so inviting and has everything you could need for weeks or months at a time. The library shelves are full of fascinating books on all kinds of subjects: art, biographies, business, cape cod, children's books, foreign languages, history, nature, philosophy, reference books, sciences. There is a closet full of family games and puzzles. We watched and listened to a never ending parade of winter land and sea birds flying or floating by: bluejays, cardinals, chickadees, crows, finches, hawks, osprey, sparrows, woodpeckers, and bufflehead ducks, Canadian geese, cormorants, mallard ducks, seagulls and swans. Monomoscoy Island is a protected wildlife preserve, and well off the beaten tourists pathways. The house was clean, dry, nondrafty, beautifully furnished, so comfortable and well kept throughout. The big kitchen is full of dishes, glasses, mugs, pans, pots and utensils. The beds were super comforting and always a good nights sleep. There is an abundance of fresh linens. Large homes are nearby, but the yard and surrounding area is private, tree-filled and woodsy. In winter it gets dark early (you can really see the constellations!) but there is good lighting inside and outside where needed. Pathways to the house are clearly marked and lighted. Well maintained wood chip strewn driveway, with plenty of parking off the short side road. Mashpee is a lovely town of Wampanoag Indian origins. Many native descendants still live in the older parts of town, and sponsor a huge powwow of costumed dancing, drumming, and a musical celebration of their Indian culture during the summertime. We loved being here in the winter, with the cold outside it never felt anything but cozy, protected and warm inside the house. The resident hosts, who live on one side of this spacious two-story duplex, were so kind, helpful, thoughtful and never endingly patient, and made sure if there were anything we needed that they were only a phone call or text away, or a knock on their door (entrance way and foyer is shared). They will probably offer you some home cooking, and it was great! Truly a serene, special, spiritual place. And it snowed too!"

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.
