Our favorite thing is the additional room upstairs that has a lounge area on the rooftop terrace. The deluxe chef’s kitchen, stainless steel appliances, and modern beach decor make this a comfortable getaway for you and your family.
Day One: Beach and Waterfront Dining
Get up early and don’t miss a moment while staying in one of the most favored places on the Cape. Grab a cup of coffee and head to your rooftop terrace, take in the gorgeous views, get some fresh air, and watch the town of Harwich come to life. What better way to continue this calm, beautiful morning than to head to Bank Street Beach that is less than half a mile from your stay. The warm waters are perfect for swimming and watching the boats cruise through the area is the perfect beach scene while catching a tan on the notorious soft sand of Bank Street.
After a gorgeous beach day, head back to the Commons to clean up and regroup before heading back into the exciting downtown area for a mouthwatering dinner and breathtaking view at the Brax Landing for waterfront dining. This gorgeous view is under a mile away (0.7 miles to be exact) from the Commons and will give you the Cape Cod meal on-the-water experience.
Day Two: Shopping and Fun
For the second day of your trip, hit the best local shops in Harwich Port, just steps from your rental. Walk out the front door and right onto Main Street where you can find trendy boutiques and beachy gift shops. Try Dr. Gravity’s Kite Shop for toys, candy, and all of your beach activity essentials. Make sure to check out Murphy’s General Store - is a classic, old fashioned Cape Cod general store in a 143-year-old building! Lastly, check out Sativa, a gift shop and boutique. Sativa has all of your favorites from chic apparel, bath and body care, jewelry, and beachy home decor.
After a day of shopping, bring the kids to Grand Slam Entertainment only a two-minute drive from your rental. Opening for their 33rd summer, Grand Slam has everyone’s favorite outdoor activities. Have some competitive fun in the Cape’s largest bumper boat pool. You can also take a ride on the zipline that stretches right over the bumper boat pool. Let the athlete in the family hit the batting cages or climb on Grand Slam’s newest rock wall.
When everyone is tired out from a long day of fun, head over to Sweet Izzy’s Ice Cream Shop just another two minutes down the road. Sweet Izzy’s is all dairy-free making their ice cream with delicious coconut and almond milk! Grab a waffle cone with an endless amount of toppings, a large sundae, or even a milkshake to cool down and treat yourself after an adventurous day.
Day Three: Flowers and Vineyards
On day three, explore some of Cape Cod’s best scenery at the Cape Cod Lavender Farm only another quick five minute drive from the rental. Take a peaceful stroll through the grounds of this family-owned business located at the heart of 11 secluded acres. The lavender harvest occurs during late June to mid-July when the flowers are at peak color and bloom.
