  • Keep Coming Back!

    "This place really is a "home away from home" and not your typical beach rental. We have vacationed at this house for the past 4 summers and each year the owners add improvements to ensure a positive stay. They truly care about their property and do their best to make sure you enjoy the property as much as they do (including a "goody basket" upon arrival!) Our kids are 3 and a 6 years old and the house is perfect for them. Large backyard for whiffle ball or Frisbee, huge deck to eat/enjoy drinks, and finish the night with a fire in the fire pit and roasting marshmellows. In addition, the neighborhood is quiet with very little traffic, which allows for plenty of safe walks, bike rides, scooters, etc. We especially like the walk to the subdivision pool, a short 5 minutes away. The pool was always a nice option in the afternoon after a morning at the beach followed by lunch and naps :) With the house centrally located to everything, it's easy to find what you want. The beach, grocery store, local outdoor marketplace, ice cream parlors, restaurants, pizza, bars, and even bowling alleys are ALL less than 5 mins away. In addition, we've taken a liking to driving the 20 minutes to Falmouth to visit the downtown area and then rent bikes to enjoy the scenic bike path along the ocean. It's important to point out that this house initially appealed to us because they have a crib ready to go so we didn't have to pack one. While we no longer need/use it, it's still in the house and a GREAT amenity for families with a little one. We keep coming back because there isn't a better place out there. The quiet, the cleanliness, the space, the owners, and the deck (!) are what makes this place special."

  • 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."

  • What a great place for a family reunion!

    "Everyone was pleased and felt comfortable around this captivating house and property. Plenty of room to stretch out and relax. Private surroundings. Great games for kids and adults. Perfectly equipped kitchen. We had Surf and Turf every night from the local purveyors. We even sent the men folk to rustle up some clams from Salt Pond on Sunday. Being able to explore the two very different beaches (ocean and bay) was an exceptional treat for our west coast members - it is a contrast not found in many places! All in all, everyone was so pleased, they are inspired to get together again next year!"

  • Neat as a pin, convenient to everything!

    "My family had a wonderful vacation at this home. We love the short drive to Mayflower Beach and it was also a quick jaunt to Stop & Shop and the West Dennis area. We enjoyed the CC rail trail as well as proximity to 6a shops & restaurants. The neighborhood was lovely - quiet and perfect for walking or kids riding their bikes. The home itself is very comfortable and clean. Large kitchen with eating area, very good sized family room and a great yard for grilling, relaxing outside. We look forward to creating many more family memories there are repeat renters!"

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.
