The space
The Cape House is a family owned property that originally began as "The Cottage." We have been offering a quintessential Cape Cod vacation experience for the past 11 years. Our cute and cozy cottage sustained serious flood damage during the winter of 2017, so we've moved on, torn down, and re-built. Introducing the brand new, custom built Cape House!

The Cape House is a two minute walk to Millway beach and overlooks Barnstable Harbor. You will enjoy beautiful sunrises or sunsets from every room. Enjoy cooking and relaxing around the fire pit on the stone patio or grab a bite to eat at one of the two restaurants located across the street. A short walk to Barnstable Village is a great choice as well! Offering shops, ice cream, grocery, coffee (our guests RAVE about it), and lunch and dinner restaurants. Take a rest on the front porch or screened in back porch and enjoy a little people watching or just enjoy reading a good book. Barnstable Harbor offers Fishing Charters, Whale Watching trips, boat rentals, slip rentals, and boat ramp access directly across the street - so bring your boat if you'd like!

Where you’ll be

Barnstable, Massachusetts, United States

Everything is within walking distance, except a large grocery store. The Barnstable Market is a small shop that offers many options (including great pizza, subs, and a deli), but if you are looking for more, it's about a 10 minute drive.

You will see many people walking around and enjoying the ocean views. It's a very friendly, safe, and walk-able neighborhood.
