  • Beachside seafood or chicken paella
    I will greet my guest and tell them about myself I will give a tour of the property, beach, personal facilities to use in my home and make everyone feel comfortable. I will give a detail to the evening. I will have everyone watch my demonstrate and offer for anyone to participate in the meal. We will all sit around the large tables that are beautifully set and eat dinner. After or before dinner, depending on the time of day, I will encourage guests to take a walk along the water or watch the most amazing sunset over the water,

  • Discover Chatham Bike Tour
    We will meet at my home on Seaview Street to get set up with bikes talk a little bit about the surrounding homes in the neighborhood. We will start off the bike tour visiting two landmarks (Chatham Bars Inn and Chatham Lighthouse) and a secret beach! The second half of the tour covers some history of Chatham, the increased shark activity in these waters, and information about clamming and fishing in the town. We will end with the picturesque Oyster Pond and Veteran’s field and talk about the local community. I'll provide some nearby recommendations for delicious lunch. This is an easy to medium difficulty bike ride. It is 3 miles in total and more of a means to easily see a lot of places than you would on foot. Please note that there are some roads with traffic, but cars are generally respectful of bikes in Chatham. I am fully vaccinated.

  • Harbor Seal and Boat Tour - Cape Cod
    A booking provides fare passage to explore the rivers and bays of Orleans, North Chatham; the haul out area of Cape Cod's large gray seal population; the waters of Chatham Harbor including the Chatham fishing fleet and the Chatham fish pier. View Chatham lighthouse and the shores of the beautiful Cape Cod National Seashore barrier beach with its vibrant bird and marine life. Water is provided. The tour is 2 hours long and is 22 miles round trip. Our trip remains within the calm protected waters of Orleans and Chatham and does not go into the ocean. If you haven't seen this part of Cape Cod from the water, then you are missing its true beauty. Due to the substantial cost of operating the vessel, a tour trip can only run if there are a minimum of three booked fares. Other things to note Children 12 and under must wear life jackets. Children of all ages are welcome if accompanied by their parent. Unaccompanied children must be 18 years of age or older. Capt. may cancel if bad weather

  • Fat tire biking on the beach
    The tidal flats in Dennis are one of the most unique features that you will see while on Cape Cod. The tidal flats wrap around the inner elbow of Cape Cod and extend all the way to North Eastham, making this the largest tidal flat in North America. At it's best, the beach at low tide extends over a mile from the high tide line. We will begin with an orientation to the riding area, including safety considerations and points of interest. We will then ride one mile over packed sand to the nearby oyster farms, where we will talk about the process and business of shellfish farming as well as it's environmental and economic benefits. Then we will ride over the beach and through small shin-deep tide pools to the low tide line, approximately 1/2 mile depending on tidal conditions. From here, feel free to dismount your bike, walk around on the beach, or continue biking along the coast for a bit before riding back to the parking area. Other things to note: You do not have to be an athlete to participate in this experience, but a moderate level of physical fitness will help you enjoy it. Also, your feet will get wet, so bring an extra pair of shoes.

Your guide to Cape Cod

All About Cape Cod

Spanning a 70-mile-long hooked peninsula on the Atlantic Coast, Cape Cod has been a beloved beach getaway for generations. The Cape is dotted with lighthouses, sandy beaches, and 15 New England beach resort towns. There are saltbox cottages and weathered, shingled bungalows as well as ice cream parlors, candy shops filled with saltwater taffy, and seafood shacks that claim the best lobster rolls around.

The peninsula is divided into four regions. The Upper Cape, which includes Falmouth, Mashpee, and Sandwich, is closest to Boston and historic Plymouth. The Mid-Cape is the densest region and includes Barnstable, Yarmouth, and Hyannis, where you’ll find the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum. The former whaling village of Brewster is in the Lower Cape, alone with Chatham and Harwich. Don’t skip the Outer Cape — it might be quite a drive, but the gorgeous Cape Cod National Seashore and the artsy, LGBTQ+ destination of Provincetown are well worth it.


How do I get around Cape Cod?

The easiest way to get to Cape Cod is flying into Boston Logan International Airport (BOS) or T.F. Green International Airport (PVD) in Providence, Rhode Island. Both are between 60 and 65 miles from the start of the Cape. The drive is about an hour and a half, but both routes are subject to bad traffic, particularly in the summer, which can increase driving times by an hour. The Barnstable Municipal Airport (HYA) in Hyannis also offers a few flights, many of which are seasonal.

Regional bus lines run through the Northeast and stop in a few towns along Cape Cod, including the Hyannis Transportation Center, which is also a train station.

Within a given town, you can usually walk, rideshare, or pedal your beach cruiser to wherever you need to go. If you plan to travel around the Cape, you’ll want a car, as things are fairly spread out.


When is the best time to stay in a vacation rental in Cape Cod?

Peak season on Cape Cod is between Memorial Day and Labor Day, when the days are long, sunny, and hot, with temperatures around 80 degrees Fahrenheit. There can be isolated summer thunderstorms, but rain is rare at this time of year. Humidity, on the other hand, is not. But while the crowds flock here for summer vacation, the Cape is a year-round destination. Fall has become increasingly popular, thanks to its sunny, brisk, 60-degree days and brilliant foliage, and spring visitors enjoy warm, 70-degree beach weather before the summer crowds arrive. Even Cape Cod winters, when temperatures drop into the 40s and snow falls, are charming if you like lonely, blustery beaches and curling up by a fire.


What are the top things to do in Cape Cod?

Cape Cod National Seashore

While lively, convenient beaches line the peninsula, it’s well worth visiting the pristine beaches within the 27,000-acre Cape Cod National Seashore. But the park is not all about sandy shores: thirteen hiking trails and three bike trails wind through pristine dunes, wetlands, and scrub oak forests.

Whale Watching

Between mid-April and late October, hundreds of humpback, finback, and minke whales arrive at their feeding grounds along the Massachusetts coast. Many tour companies will guarantee sightings. Boats leave from various locations including Hyannis, Provincetown, Barnstable, Orleans, and Plymouth.

The Islands

You could spend an entire vacation rubbing shoulders with famous folks on Nantucket or Martha’s Vineyard, but passenger ferries from several Cape towns make it possible to visit either on a day trip. On Nantucket, spend an afternoon wandering the historic town and the Whaling Museum; on Martha’s Vineyard, be sure to visit the town of Aquinnah, home of the local Wampanoag people, and its beautiful clay cliffs, as well as the old-fashioned historic carousel in Oak Bluffs.
