Recent Cape Cod reviews

  • Lovely Wellfleet location

    "Loved this home and the location. House was immaculate and included everything we could have needed, no need to bring anything but food! Upon arrival the home smelled wonderful from the finished basement to the top floor bedrooms and bathrooms. Loved having coffee and breakfast in the great sun room in the morning and relaxing on the cozy couches at night. Great location, close to plenty walking/running trails, plenty of beaches! Quietly nestled away from the road and heavy traffic. We visited after Labor day weekend so everything was very quiet and serene in the area, we loved it! Still warm enough to do some sunbathing at the beach and even go for a quick dip. Dulcie and Paul quickly responded to any questions prior to the trip as well as during our visit, very easy reservation process, no hidden fees or expenses. Thanks for making our vacation so enjoyable, we couldn't have picked a better place! Hope to stay here again in the future!"

  • Beautiful Rose Cottage

    "My family- 5 adults and three children had a wonderful vacation at Rose Cottage. It is beautifully decorated and has all of the amenities anyone would want for their vacation. A beautiful retreat in the woods and only a few miles from Old Silver Beach- one of the most beautiful beaches on the Cape. We would recommend this lovely home to all who are looking for a "home away from home". We definitely will vacation here again."

  • A Slice of Heaven

    "What a wonderful place to vacation. This well kept (owners take great care of the cottage) cottage is close to everything!! Steps away from lighthouse beach- the most beautiful beach in the world! One can walk for miles on the beach which seems like a private oasis. No need to drive anywhere while staying at the cottage (although can if you'd like) downtown resturants and shops are right down Main Street. Yet it is the cottage itself which makes the vacation complete. Set back on a private lane, the water views, surrounding wildlife and wrap around deck helps us to relax while lounging, grilling and eating!! Oh yeah- and there is boat landing nearby!! And a place down a nearby path for kayaking. We cannot say enough! It is a slice of heaven."

  • Quintessential Cape Cod cottage

    "We thoroughly enjoyed an unforgettable 2 week vacation in this fantastic picture-perfect cottage. While the ever-changing view can't be beat, a few additional highlights of our stay should be mentioned: - the outdoor shower gets afternoon sun, which adds to the experience - while small, we found the excellent SubZero refrigerator to be perfectly suited for a couple on vacation (and we cooked/grilled more than we ate out); the efficient ice maker was an extra bonus - the kayaks were a lot of fun and, compared to renting them, a great value-add - top-of-the-line, well-maintained large Weber grill - unbelievably comfortable hybrid latex mattress (we missed it so much that w/in 3 weeks of returning home we bought our own) - brand new Nespresso VertuoLine Espresso and Coffee maker with milk frother (if the incredible sunrise isn't enough of a stimulant)! - just down the street from Relish (arguably Ptown's best gourmet take-out and sandwich shop - their cupcakes are the ones to beat!) - a 24-hour visit from Hurricane Arthur proved how well built and solid the cottage is, as it didn't creak once - Lyn, the owner, was attentive, engaging, and an overall pleasure to deal with; she and her business partner, Maria, have clearly taken great care of this unique property. We're already counting down the days until our next visit in 2015! John & Rock"

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.
