While Cape Cod is traditionally considered a summer getaway it can also be a romantic winter getaway as cold temps ensure couples will want to be as close to each other as possible. Sitting in front of a crackling fire feeling warm and cozy while the snow drifts gently to the ground just outside is our idea of a perfect winter night and this guide to romantic Cape Cod activities in winter for you to participate in while staying in one of our New England Vacation Rentals seasonal sanctuaries will give you an escape filled with love, romance, and memories.
The actual quote goes along the lines of the quickest way to HIS stomach is through his heart but we know that a romantic meal can make men’s and women’s hearts beat faster and restaurants like Encore in Dennis, and the Brewster Fish House in Brewster know all the tricks to help “young” couples of any age to fall deeply in love! Located on 6A in Dennis Village on the grounds of “Cape Playhouse”, Encore is as charming on the inside as it is on the outside and offers a wonderfully prepared selection of upmarket meat and local seafood as well as an extensive cocktail menu that will warm couples from the inside out. The Brewster Fish House offers another opportunity to dine in a historic home, this one a charming cottage, and features a seafood-centric menu and a beautiful wood bar where you can choose to eat or simply wait for drinks before heading to your table.
Although you will probably want to spend a lot of your time on Cape Cod inside, we do suggest you get out every once in a while, preferably to watch the sunset over the seas. Nobska Lighthouse in Falmouth may be adorned with a festive wreath at Christmas, providing an idyllic background for that first Christmas card picture as a couple and the beaches covered with snow will offer the most romantic walking experience as you cuddle close together, warmly dressed, for a walk along tranquil and quiet beaches.
As you shop, dine, and explore the wonders of Cape Cod in the winter, coming home to the warmth and comfort found in our New England Vacation Rentals seasonal escapes will provide an extra dose of romance to your love-filled getaway! Watch the sunset from generously sized windows, sip hot cocoa in front of a roaring fire, and share dreams and hopes for the future every night before sleep takes over!

The world is a busy place and there will always be meetings to go to, school events you must attend, and chores to be done, but that person sitting across the breakfast table from you every morning deserves something more. She (or he!) has worked unfailingly beside you, ensuring that every mundane detail in your busy life is taken care of. From doctor’s appointments to remembering the big school project, all while working a full-time job, your life partner never quits. And today, we think it’s time to thank that special person with a Cape Cod romantic getaway for two. This guide will help ensure that this trip is an extraordinary one that will never be forgotten!
The fully-equipped kitchen in your New England Vacation Rentals romantic escape makes it fun and easy to whip up some French toast for the love of your life; all you need to do is pick up the supplies at the nearest Shaw’s (They also sell pastries if cooking isn’t your thing!). There’s nothing better than awakening to the smell of French toast or a freshly heated muffin, and who knows? Maybe she will return the favor on day two!
The best way to explore the beauty of Cape Cod with the love of your life is aboard two wheels, and it’s easy to find bike rental shops, no matter which village you are staying in. The Rail Trail Bike & Kayak Shop, located at 302 Underpass Road in Brewster, offers direct access to the Cape Cod Rail Trail and also offers tandem bikes if you want to take romance to the next level of wonder! In the summer, wear a swimsuit under your street clothes and stop for a swim in Seymour Pond; sandy beaches and sunny skies add to the romance of this Cape Cod romantic getaway!
As the sun sets over the Cape, a simple stroll along the beach is the best way to re-spark the embers of your romance. Hold hands as you walk along the shore’s edge, watching the fiery show off yet another ending to yet another day in paradise. No one will blame you for not being able to resist stealing a kiss. You made the right choice all those years ago and it shows in the smile on your face and the fullness of your heart.
It’s the little moments you share with your partner in life that often have the biggest impact: murmured conversations before falling asleep, private jokes that no one else understands when you dissolve into giggles, and a special Cape Cod romantic getaway that will remind you how lucky you are. Spending your getaway in one of our New England Vacation Rentals honeymoon hideaways promises to be the second-best idea you’ve made in your lifetime—reserve yours today!
