Cape Cod is just an easy one hour drive from Boston. It is known for its quaint style, sand dunes, natural settings, beautiful beaches, and fabulous sunsets. Unique Cape Cod Inn homes are a wonderful way to experience the area. It is most popular in July and August, during beach weather. Our favorite times are in spring and fall when it is busy, yet less crowded. On the way, make a stop at Plymouth Rock.
