Cape Cod is a magical place. A magnet for famous writers and artists, past and present. Playground of sitting and former US presidents, American royalty, and of course the Kennedys.
For good reason.
Seals, whales, fish, and the apex predators who prey upon them. The unique ecology of the Cape astonishes.
Watching countless seals swim by you on the beach, while they watch you right back, is a memorable and special experience.
We know the best spots to watch them as well as the many worry free places to swim.
Whether a charter, fishing adventure, whale watching trip, a sail, a ferry journey, paddle, or all of the above, we have countless opportunities to get out on the water.
The sights, smells, and sounds of Cape beaches are unique. They are among the last of the wild places, a mecca for birdwatching and naturalists of all stripes.
Our beaches are famous the world over, for good reason.
Fresh seafood and shellfish caught on the same day it ends up on your table is a delight.
The range of seafood dining options nearby the inn astounds.
The waters here produce an almost unimaginable richness and abundance.
It is among our favorite Cape destinations, and a must visit.
This is a timeless place that cleanses and restores the spirit.
Home to Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), along with its labs and diverse population of scientists and miscreants, brings interesting color to our local community.
Quissett Harbor, Falmouth Harbor, and others are nearby.
These marshes and wetland areas act as nurseries to a wide range of species, and absolutely full of life.
Exploring them on countless trails, or paddling them in a kayak, make for memorable days well spent.
We are fortunate so much of this local ecology is so accessible to visitors, it is an inspiring place.
It’s also where a few of our favorite restaurants and watering holes are located, and the steamship authority to run back and forth to Martha’s Vineyard.
