The first thing you think of when you hear Cape Cod might not be Sandwich – but it should be! As Cape Cod’s oldest town, you’ll be greeted with the charm and simplicity of yesteryear. When you stay at one of our Cape Cod short term rentals, you have the luxury of slipping away to a quiet respite while still being close to all the action.
Sandwich: Cape Cod’s Best Kept Secret
Many think of Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket when planning a vacation to Cape Cod. However, the historic town of Sandwich (founded in 1639) is where you’ll find a picturesque seaside retreat, complete with tree-shaded streets and historic buildings and homes on every corner. With that “Olde Cape Cod” feel, you’ll love exploring the town – which has kept commercialization to a minimum. In fact, Sandwich prides itself on its historic preservation, so you won’t find glaring neon signs or tacky tee-shirt stands anywhere here.
Get Lost in the Heritage Museums and Gardens
Located in the heart of Sandwich, The Heritage Museums and Gardens provides you an opportunity to wander and lose track of time. Over 100 acres of specialty gardens, winding walking paths, three museums, and a play area for kids (called “Hidden Hollow”), you’ll walk away celebrating our country’s indigenous heritage, culture, folk art, and innovation.
Relax in one of Cape Cod’s Spas
The world-class spas on Cape Cod are perfect for unwinding and finding that long-awaited “me time.” You can book a session in a quaint backyard massage studio surrounded by beautiful foliage, or you can indulge in Cape Cod’s most luxurious day spas. Whichever your heart desires, you’ll find unmatched expertise, professionalism, and — of course! — rejuvenation. Get the girls together, take a romantic partner, or enjoy one of these respites all on your own.
Hit the Links on Cape Cod
The scenic golf courses dotting Cape Cod are a golfer’s dream come true. Known as “The Golf Coast,” the sculpted and manicured fairways are some of the finest in the country. Whether you’re going on an annual golfing trip with your buddies or enjoying a quieter golf experience, you can choose from a variety of courses for all skill levels. Plus, the beautiful weather year-round makes golf an absolute must while visiting Cape Cod. From Sandwich, there are several golf courses, including Bayberry Hills Golf Course, The Cape Club, and Blue Rock Golf Course, which are less than a 25-minute drive away.
Explore the Beautiful Outdoors
Take the family on a leisurely stroll through Cape Cod’s abundant wooded paths, salt marshes, and beach dunes. There are several Conservation Lands in the Sandwich area, which all offer natural beauty, encounters with wildlife, and plenty of photo ops.
You can also rent a bike and cycle through 114 miles of Cape Cod’s bike trails. As you ride, you’ll see idyllic coastlines, meander through seaside villages, and take in breathtaking coastal views. You can even go mountain biking on one of Cape Cod’s mountain bike trails!
And of course, there are always water activities! You can charter fishing boats, rent kayaks, learn to kitesurf, or simply enjoy the waters along Sandwich’s sandy beaches. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or a brand-new beginner, you’ll find the resources and experts in Sandwich to get you and your family off the land and into the sea.
Indulge in Cape Cod’s Most Delicious Food and Drink
