Planning a honeymoon on Cape Cod? With its sandy beaches, fresh squeezed summer cocktails, and picturesque bike paths, the Cape has always been high on the list for newly-weds looking for a romantic and restorative honeymoon. Below, we’ve rounded up our five favorite lodging options for the Upper Cape, your honeymoon Cape Cod dream locale. Starting with…
Conveniently located just steps from Falmouth’s Main Street, this upscale Bed & Breakfast has a classic, 1950’s elegance — with rooms that will make you feel both comfortable and special. Breakfast can be enjoyed on the expansive veranda overlooking the grounds and gorgeous greenery. We recommend their made daily and in-house blueberry scones, perfect destination for your honeymoon Cape Cod style.
Want something a little more modern? The Nobnocket Inn, newly restored with a contemporary, British flare, is Vineyard Haven’s best new Bed & Breakfast, and the perfect excuse for the forty-five minute ferry ride over. You won’t want to leave once you arrive, and owners Simon and Annabelle will instantly make you feel at home. Spend your honeymoon window shopping the adorable (Obama approved!) shops in Vineyard Haven, or take a day trip down island for a chance to enjoy the many picture-perfect beaches. See our complete tour of the Inn here.
At the Belfry Inn & Bistro in Sandwich, every room is different. Once a Catholic church with high, vaulted ceilings, you’ll have a chance to sleep in a king bed below a magnificent stained glass window! Gold Winner of Cape Cod Life’s best Bed & Breakfast — the Inn also houses one of the Cape’s finest restaurants, where an evolving menu offers a fresh and seasonal take on American cuisine. Try the local burrata with eggplant Caponata, or the Belfry burger with tomato jam and crispy Prosciutto.
Sticking to a budget, or more of the outdoors-y types? Rent a tipi at Sippewissett Campgrounds, which offers 100 sites equipped with picnic tables and fire pits — and even a laundromat. Take advantage of the campground’s free daily shuttle to the beach and ferry, or rent bikes for a scenic trip into Woods Hole for hot coffee and Popovers at Pie in the Sky. A honeymoon Cape Cod complete with s’mores and catching fireflies in a jar could be yours!
And last but not least — the Woods Hole Inn. We could go on and on about the romantic charm of this bustling port town — from the waterfront restaurants to the sweet seals at the aquarium to the best lobster tacos on Cape Cod — all just walking distance from the Inn. Take a trip to the Vineyard (the Inn is just steps from the Steamship Authority ferry terminal), or keep it local with lots of beaches, a bike path that hugs the shore, and evenings sipping champagne on our private water-facing deck. We can guarantee you’ll fall in love with this place we call home.
