Best Places to Stay on Cape Cod

Summer is the most popular time of the year to visit Cape Cod and its sister island, Martha’s Vineyard. Tourists love sunbathing on the beach, riding the waves, whale-watching, and doing other fun water activities that only an all-time favorite summer destination like Cape Cod can provide. So if you’re ready to get some action, it’s time to book your trip and your lodging to the islands.

If you want to feel the “real Cape” and have a laidback atmosphere, opt to stay in the quaint village of Chatham known for its iconic lighthouse and just minutes to the Cape Cod National Seashore. It’s also one of the best choices if you want to go for a sailing excursion and go out into Nantucket Sound. Check in to Chatham Gables Inn, a 170-year-old inn, for a special New England hospitality and authentically restored interiors.

For a more quiet and country feel, Eastham may be what you’re looking for. Being home to the stunning National Seashore, Eastham attracts many surfers all-year round. The Wellfleet Oysterfest in October is also something tourists look forward to in this small town. Lots of hiking trails are available in the area, and you’ll also find some of the best lighthouses in the Cape in Eastham. If you want a romantic bed and breakfast and spa, you’ll love the Whalewalk Inn and its beautiful amenities located at a quiet side of town.

Seven miles off the coast of Cape Cod is the famous island of Martha’s Vineyard. It became even more well-known because of the movie Jaws, where it was filmed and fictionally named as the town of Amity. Every town in Martha’s Vineyard has its own bevy of activities that will make you wonder where has time gone. From downtown Edgartown to the fairy-tale wonder of Oak Bluffs, you’ll be amazed with the sweet treat you’ll get touring the island.

Since the towns offer different attractions and activities, you might want to stay at a vacation rental in your town of choice. Browse the luxury rentals available in and stay for as long as you want to experience the island!
