Our Vacation Rentals in Sandwich are Unique
Cookie-cutter homes are not what you can expect during your escape to the Cape and your stay in our Sandwich vacation rentals. Even as many properties are classic cottages sided with weather-beaten clapboards, there will be deep-seated differences that please and awe. Colorful flowers may grace the landscape, and front porches may be covered and furnished with seating options to enjoy as the sun sets over the horizon. Inside, although wood floors are often the flooring of choice—some will offer tile entryways or carpeted hallways—all create paths that lead guests to warm and welcoming public spaces. Living rooms with high ceilings may also offer walls of windows that keep from obstructing the views of lakes, beaches, or large meadowlike backyards. The sofas will be nappable, the fireplaces will add romance and warmth to the space, and televisions may not be watched very often, but will be modern, new, and a nice added touch sure to be enjoyed on lazy days at home. Cape Cod loves families and friends, and our Cape Cod havens are designed to make every guest feel at home.
Gather around large dining tables to build puzzles on a rainy day, play board games on a quiet night, or enjoy a family meal every evening of your stay. Fully equipped kitchens may resemble a farmhouse space, offering marble countertops, painted cabinets, and all the small appliances that will give your vacation more joy; the coffee can always be brewing, your wine may always be chilling, and a good cuppa tea may be what helps you ease the transition from wide awake to deep asleep and coffee makers, wine chillers, and tea kettles may be found in these spaces. Some of our Sandwich sanctuaries will come with pool tables and/or game rooms, others will provide second living rooms and multiple master suites. Clawfoot tubs in some bathrooms offer a peek into the past while transporting soakers to Nirvana and king beds in tranquil bedrooms will encourage long nights of deep sleep and happy dreams!
The Backyard Oasis
New Englanders aren’t fancy folk but we also don’t believe that less is more, something that will become extremely apparent when you step out into the oasis that is the backyard of these Sandwich special sanctuaries. Large decks are open to the sky, furnished with multiple seating options and dining tables that will come in handy on days when the barbecue (also in most backyards) is put to use. Enjoy a deep sea fishing expedition during the daylight hours and bring back the catch of the day to grill on a warm summer night. Hot tubs can be found under the stars, providing the ultimate vacation experiences, and fire pits located just beyond the reach of concrete or wood deck patios are where some of your best Sandwich vacation memories will be made. Perhaps you will choose a home on a pond and begin every day with a fishing pole in hand, finding serenity in the simple moments. Saunas are another option for entertainment and on those nights when peace and quiet is what you seek, grab a seat on the deck, grab a throw blanket from the sofa, and let that night sky remind you of how beautiful life can be!
The towns and villages of Cape Cod each contain their own vibe and ambiance with Sandwich bringing history. The oldest town on the Cape, Sandwich was settled over 100 years before our nation fought for its independence. In 1637, the pilgrims settled here, reveling in its resemblance to their own hometown of Sandwich in England. Today, while history is important, more modern adventures including pizza at the Brown Jug and a visit to Beach Plum Spa will help guests feel spoiled and pampered! Town Neck Beach is probably one of the most beautiful beaches on Cape Cod, offering idyllic views of Sandwich and a long stretch of soft golden sand even though there are no lifeguards on this beach, the calm waters make it a favorite of visitors and residents.
For those who enjoy a trip back in time, the oldest home in town, the Hoxie House, offers a beautiful example of what life was like back in the early days of settlement. Built in the mid-1600s, Hoxie House was lived in continuously until the 1950s without electricity, if you can imagine that! Today, you can explore its interiors in the summer months and the lush and verdant grounds are open year-round. Dining out on Cape Cod is sure to be a highlight of your adventures, and while the pizza served at Brown Jug deserves to be added to your dining menu, our seafood restaurants are famous worldwide and the Fisherman’s View is absolutely a must-try! Offering sea views from its patio, a great sushi selection, and of course, the Cape favorite, fresh and delicious lobster rolls, its casual vibe makes everyone feel comfortable and at home! In the summer, its outdoor bar is practically the most popular spot in town, but we can assure you that the Fisherman’s View is still popular even when the outdoor bar is closed.
Life on Cape Cod
Life on Cape Cod moves at a slower pace, and it doesn’t take long to pick up that island vibe. You may even find yourself slowing your pace as you walk down the historic streets of Sandwich, taking time to breathe in the salt air and marvel over the charm and workmanship of the homes, businesses, and restaurants that dot the landscape. Spending an entire day at home with New England Vacation Rentals may even turn out to be your favorite adventure of all, as your sleep late, nap more, and let the serenity of the sea soothe your soul. Our homes are built to be an integral part of your vacation experience and our vacation rentals in Sandwich will pamper and spoil. Reserve your favorite Sandwich sanctuary today!
