  • Lovely and Charming

    "Really nice, comfortable house in great location. Very comfortable beds, very clean, well stocked kitchen, full size washer/dryer and dishwasher. Only thing we would have liked is an outdoor shower. Great beaches at Linnell Landing, Paine's Creek, Corporation Beach, amazing lobster rolls at Sesuit Harbor Cafe (about 10 minutes away), the Ice Cream Smuggler, Four Seas Ice Cream, Sundae School Ice Cream ( yes, we do like ice cream!), Brewster Bookstore, Wellfleet Drive In, Truro Vineyard and P-town."

  • Classic Cape Cod

    "Just spent a week with 11 adults at this beautiful old home. Very classic Cape Cod on the water with incredible views from main rooms and many bedrooms. The home was apparently built in 1927 and still retains many family mementos, artwork, books, etc. These certainly add to it's charm. It is incredibly warm and inviting. There is room for everyone to be together or spread out. It is impeccably clean and certainly the best stocked VRBO we have ever stayed. It even had two huge pots to boil lobsters outdoors for our last night there - and the lobster bibs and little heated butter cups to make it perfect. What fun to sit out on the patio while the lobsters were prepared enjoying the beautiful sea view then enjoying a dinner at an incredibly large table inside with table cloth and candles. Later, we could fall asleep listening to the waves. The location is very close to Woods Hole to catch the ferry to Martha's Vinyard and easy access to the rest of the Cape. Some of our group even made a day trip to Newport Rhode Island to see the mansions. Small caveat - and not an issue for us - there is only one walk in shower (there is a tub as well) and one bedroom on the main floor. The other showers are tub showers - on the second floor and just a tub on the third floor. If someone has limited mobility, that might be a consideration. I would love the opportunity to stay at this wonderful home again. It was everything i hoped it would be and the owners were very helpful and communicated very well. We will all have many wonderful memories of our time at Olcottage."

  • Fantastic vacation rental

    "For the third consecutive year, we've used this home for our family reunion. After renting several different Falmouth properties, this is by far our favourite. Spacious garden, quiet lane, 1 min walk to beach are main advantages. Home is very comfortable, excellent condition. No problem sleeping 16 of us comfortably. Owner does excellent job maintaining and improving the home from year to year, and is always reachable for small details. We highly recommend this property, especially for larger families with young kids!"

  • 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!"

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.
