Five Miles From Fast Ferries To Nantucket And Martha’s Vineyard

A luxury Cape Cod Hotel in a tranquil, central location for sightseeing? A large number of our guests have chosen our Inn with those criteria in mind. They want to combine a peaceful environment with a convenient base for their Cape Cod adventures. In reality, they can be relaxing on our swing seat on our magnificent front porch one minute, and yet be sitting on an Island Fast Ferry just 25 un-rushed minutes later.

The leafy picturesque seaside communities along Cape Cod Bay are all part of Cape Cod’s historic conservation area, named The Old Kings Highway. Every one of the six villages along Route 6A is tranquil and positively charming. There are fewer vacationers and therefore less road traffic on this northern shore of Cape Cod. The mood is decidedly more gentle and relaxing than the southern shore especially along Route 28, which is heaving with hordes of vacationers during July and August.

The villages of Barnstaple, Yarmouth Port and Dennis are quite simply the Cape’s glorious little jewels, each one tastefully understated and beckoning the visitor to explore its hidden charms. there is warm and safer swimming at the many sandy beaches, plenty of cultural delights, old bookstores, antique shops, art galleries and of course a great selection of some of the best restaurants on Cape Cod.

You can mix up the more restful days of your vacation spent enjoying all this serenity, with your days exploring further afield. And this is where the central location of Yarmouth Port in particular, comes in handy. The fastest routes to both Marthas Vineyard and Nantucket are a mere 12 minute drive away, whether your contemplating flying or taking the fast ferries. Thinking of adding a whale watching excursion to your plans? Why go all the way to Provincetown, when you have the only other WW on The Cape only ten minutes away. 25 minutes scenic drive, meandering  along Route 6A, takes you effortlessly to The National Seashore.

When it is time again to leave your car in the parking lot and have a more restful day again, the historic little village of Yarmouth Port has plenty to keep you amused including the beach, boardwalk, 100 acres of nature trails, freshwater lake and beach, two fascinating museums, old bookstore, art gallery and not to forget the fifty historic sea captains houses ( a self guided tour is available ).

If you want to try a different beach each day of your vacation – it has happened – you can add some of the south shore beaches to your list of possibilities. Because of our luxury Cape Cod hotel’s location at the narrowest part of The Cape north to south, you can be on any one of around eight more fabulous beaches within a twenty minute drive.

Perhaps we have now won you over a little, to the idea of making our luxury Cape Cod hotel your base from which to explore this magical land. Highlighting our amazing location, the beauty of the building and its grounds is the easy part – after all, you can see this from our website for yourself. It is impossible however, to convey the restful ambience that you will feel the moment you arrive, or the serenity which will help you unwind and relax during your stay…………………….are you ready for all this? Because we are ready and waiting for you in a luxury Cape Cod hotel with a difference!
