  • PERFECT Family Retreat

    "We are a family with 3 young kids (ages 9, 6 and 4) and have, in the past several years, rented beach houses in Hawaii and San Diego, so this says A LOT: This vacation was our favorite!!! We loved visiting the small towns at the Cape, like Mashpee and Hyannis, but mostly, we are certain the vacation was extra special because of the property where we called "home" for 7 days. First, it is a house that is well-designed and furnished (not prints hung on walls and cheap furniture like some rental properties, but original artwork, high-end appliances, and custom furniture), so it felt comfortable as soon as we stepped foot inside. The grounds outside the house were full of details that seemed existent only in movie sets -- such as an extensive herb garden, flower garden, large hammock and giant wrap-around deck with plenty of comfortable seating and a top-of-the-line grill. My kids found hours of enjoyment on the super long tree swing and had a great time collecting shells on the beach. One day, they even made a fairy house. The fact that my "city kids" never missed electronics, like their iPads, and was never bored at the house speaks volumes... even when it rained for 2 days! One of my best memories during our week stay was when it rained. When the rain was light, I went outside to pick fresh herbs from the garden and was cooking in the kitchen while my husband played Monopoly in the livingroom with the kids. Because there was a large deck, we were able to leave the windows and doors open, so we could enjoy the sounds of the rain. All I heard was music, the rhythmic sounds of the rain, and laughter. It was so tranquil and... well, perfect! I will never forget our retreat on Bassett Island. My husband's favorite part of the property was having access to all the boats. He took the kids out on their first boat rides, kayaks and inner tube. The squeals of delight and looks on my children's faces are priceless. Lastly, it was a pleasure working with Rod and Murphy who own the property and Peter who is the Property Manager (and built the house!!!) Working with them was easy and they were extremely responsive to all my questions. It was like working with friends. If we didn't live clear across the country, we would come out every year and rent this gem of a property. It is clear to me that they put a lot of love and care into designing this house and outdoor area. It deserves only the best renters who will love and care for it too."

  • Amazing!

    "The pictures online don't fully capture how beautiful this home is and the views! From the minute you pull up it's a 5 star resort vacation without the people! This is my second time renting from Susan and from the fresh flowers to the top of the line linens and everything else it's just over the top nice! This was a girls weekend with my sisters and mom and the memories we've created and will forever have, were made that much more special with the property being what it is. We rented in the spring but did bring bikes and it was nice to ride around. Not close enough to ride anywhere I'm particular but that's the perfect part about it- it's quiet, no reason to leave. Your biggest decision is to sit on the back deck or front!"

  • This house is amazing !

    "We spent 2 nights in this house last weekend and we really enjoyed this rental. The pictures exactly reflect the house. It's very convenient, you have a lot of space and everything is extremely clean, with all the equipment you need. The outdoor space with the grill is so great in summertime ! I definitely recommend this rental for a family or a group of friends, up to 6 people. The owner was very nice when we were in touch before going there and easy to get in touch with to answer any question and give advice. Thanks to her for this great weekend !"

  • Wonderful vacation home!

    "We were delighted with so many things - the view of the harbor and sunsets, the close proximity to activities (Wellfleet, beaches, bike path, great walks), the clean and beautiful home, the well equipped kitchen, the walk into town, 2 decks, and the helpfulness of the owner. It was a very special week - thanks Mary and Kurt."

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.
