There are so many reasons to make a summer escape to the Cape and Islands, in fact, that we filled more than two dozen pages of Yankee’s May/June issue with a selection of our favorites, including things to eat and things to do. Planning a visit? From family-friendly to splurge-worthy, here are some of our favorite places to stay on the Cape & Islands.
A pirate-ship playground, old-school ice cream truck, and activity-packed Children’s Center (scavenger hunts, movie nights)—what’s not to love? wequassett.com
With five swimming pools, biking on the Cape Cod Rail Trail, and the Cape’s only Nicklaus Design golf course, this is what “something for everyone” looks like.
Antique fire truck rides and an oversize outdoor chess set? Fun. The “family beach survival kit” with towels, a kite, sand castle supplies, and more? Genius.
A leafy side street two blocks off P-town’s main drag is home to this 15-room inn that exudes beach-cottage chic.
The island’s only boutique hotel set directly on Main Street is a former sea captain’s home replete with 21st-century style and amenities.
A Victorian painted lady, a Federal-style home, and a 1902 church make up this unique B&B complex in the heart of the Cape’s oldest town.
A private beach and a secluded spa add to the feeling of exclusivity at this venerable (c. 1914) beachside resort that sprawls over 25 acres.
Gilded mirrors, pastoral oil paintings, and elegant English antiques set the tone at the only Relais & Châteaux hotel located on Martha’s Vineyard.
Pampering is a foregone conclusion at this elite retreat, where the staff-to-guest ratio is nearly 3 to 1.
Just steps away from Falmouth Heights Beach, you’ll find 12 comfortably elegant rooms and panoramas of Nantucket Sound.
This upscale collection of rooms, suites, and cottages on four prime sandy acres is Nantucket’s purest “on the beach” experience.
Nine acres on Nantucket Sound plus a private pocket beach and an “Old Cape Cod” vibe have made this a classic for 80 years.
