Recent Cape Cod reviews

  • A+ all the way!

    "This property met and exceeded all of our expectations! It's centrally located, so it's only a short drive to P-Town, Orleans, Hyannis, etc. As well it's a very close drive to all the main beaches. The patio was our favorite feature as we had coffee there every morning as well as a few adult beverages to end the day. There's also a huge back yard that the kids/dogs can run around in. The washer/dryer came in handy to wash clothes and towels. Great communication by the owner Dave. He even called to check in to make sure everything was going OK. Next time we're back to the Cape, we'll be staying here again! Thanks again Dave - you made our summer trip one of the best ones yet."

  • Loved the Yardarm!

    "Our family had a wonderful time at the Yardarm. It is in a great location on a little hill where you can see the water from the house and the front yard. Our kids loved the bunk beds. We also loved the outdoor shower, cozy living room, and thoughtful details throughout the house, such as abundant hooks, towel racks, and shelves to put your things on. There are even night lights, board games, DVDs, and Netflix for the kids. The kitchen was well-stocked with dishes and everything you need for cooking. We loved it and had a great time!"

  • An oasis well located

    "This is a perfect house for a family with children. The layout of the rooms, the bunk beds in the basement for children and the living room/dinning room/kitchen in one open area, allows privacy as well as good family time. The propriety is situated at a perfect location : 5 to 10 minutes car ride from all the best beaches that Cape Cod can offer, 10 minutes from the center town of Wellfleet (where you can find Hatch's fish market) and only 15 minutes from Provincetown. The surrounding of the house is amazing. We were delighted to spend our vacation amongst the blue jays, cardinals, chickadees and woodpeckers. The owner installed a bird feeder and everyday we could enjoy bird watching on the deck that surrounds the house. I definitely recommend this place!"

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.
