  • Perfect for a family holiday on the Cape

    "We had a really wonderful vacation. The house is very attractive and is perfect for a family - loads of space inside the house and also an extensive garden (with Koi pond). It can't be beaten for location. All parts of the Cape are easily accessible. Plus the road is quiet and has the benefit of being right next to Long Pond (which is more of a lake!). Use of kayaks is included - the kids loved it. The house is well stocked with everything you're likely to need, including games and beach stuff for the kids (great as we flew in from the UK). Book it - you'll love it!"

  • 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!"

    "We loved this house! The attention to detail is amazing. It has a big beautiful back yard with a deck and an outdoor shower that we enjoyed. The house is spotless yet very homey and comfortable, Air conditioning makes it cool when needed but the windows offer fresh air and quiet sleeping .It is a short drive to town or the beach but walking is fine too. I can't wait to visit again.Thank you!"

  • Perfect home for a stay on Cape Cod!

    "This was a fantastic place for us to vacation on the Cape. I brought my son's family with me, so we had 3 adults and two teens and a 10yr. old. This house had great space for all of us. The décor was in a tasteful beach theme. The kitchen was fully stocked with the things you would need to cook great meals. My sister lives in Cotuit, so it was easy to get to and from for visits. We enjoyed a walk down Scudder Lane to the beach Sunday followed by trip to Barnstable, a wonderful quaint village. We went out to Sampson's Island and were able to use the beach chairs the owners had available. The week was full with a Whale Watch, campfires on Sandy Neck Beach, Trip to National Seashore and P-Town, and a trip to Boston. Took in a few Cotuit Kettleers Baseball games and the Patriots training camp. This house was perfect for all our plans. The only downfall I have, was not having WIFI with everyone using the internet. Actually I wasn't able to connect to the land line, but Sturgis Library saved the day to make return reservations. Also having linens available has always been a common practice with other VRBO's. Bringing towels and bedding, etc. Was a bit of an inconvenience. Over all the experience of being in this location on the Cape and in such a nice home was wonderful! Thanks for letting us experience this great vacation home! Dana"

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.
