Cape Cod Cottage Rentals
Cape Cod cottage rentals are a favourite form of lodging for my family. It's like coming home to your own little house.
There's nothing like driving back from the beach at the end of a long day of surfing and sunning, covered in salt and a new tan, and pulling up to your own little oasis.
Enjoying a refreshing cold one, you sit at your picnic table, soaking up the last of the day's UVs and reflect on your perfect day.
Most cottages have BBQs so now would be a good time to start prepping a nice thick rib eye and maybe some seafood as well.
Cooking outdoors while on vacation seems to add extra flavour to no matter what dish you are making.
Here are some of my recommended Cape Cod cottage rentals:
