Cape Cod Location
Part of New England, Cape Cod holds a historical charm. A maritime economy, the Cape is a hidden jewel that many tourists travel to each year for its wonderous beaches, clam chowder, seafood, and family adventures.
The conveniently located Mid-Cape bed & breakfast is beachfront with its own private, sandy beach where, in summer, the warm waters of Nantucket Sound average 72 degrees. Easily accessible from our inn are both upscale and casual restaurants, ferries for day trips to the islands of Nantucket and Martha’s Vineyard, as well as championship public golf courses, beautiful beaches, bike trails, tennis courts, shopping, fishing, water sports, and the Cape Playhouse theatre.
All guests can enjoy our basic continental breakfast with fresh pastries, coffee, and tea, served during peak season (End of June through Labor Day). During the off-season, there are plenty of cafes and breakfast restaurants in the area, all within a 10-20 minute drive. We may have muffins and coffee available on weekends, based on how busy it is.
Beach lounge chairs are available to guests on a first-come basis. Please bring your own beach towels.
Yoga classes on the beach are offered to all Seashell guests at our sister property next door, By the Sea Guests, seasonally every Saturday 8-9 AM EST. Equipment is provided.
Every room has a private bathroom, heat, air-conditioning, a flat-screen TV, fridge, and WIFI. Most bathrooms include a standard bathtub. Many rooms have a kitchenette with a fridge, microwave, coffee maker, and toaster.
Located on the beach, many rooms have beautiful oceanfront views with gorgeous private balconies or decks overlooking the beach. A few have a side, partial ocean view. What’s better than waking up to the ocean outside your window and a glorious cup of coffee?
