Doted as a top destination for New Yorkers and beach-goers alike, Cape Cod hosts quaint villages, fresh food and guaranteed quality family time. While this tiny peninsula is filled with sophisticated bed and breakfasts and chic inns, nothing tops the Sea Crest Beach Hotel. The Sea Crest Hotel boasts a beautiful private beach front location with immaculate white sand. The property is super family friendly with indoor and outdoor (beach front) heated pools, daily art activities for kids, fitness on the beach, family movie night- alfresco style, and a well-priced gift shop.
Cape Cod Treasure Sea Crest Hotel
Recently renovated, the Sea Crest Beach Hotel is decorated in cheerful beach colors and prints with a touch of nature. We stayed in a spacious double bedroom on the ground floor of the Yankee Girl. I was thrilled with the direct access to the outdoor manicured courtyard which is wind protected with an ocean view. The kids loved the freedom and space to run around without leaving the hotel. NOTE: Before you book a room, be sure to check if there is a function being held in the courtyard.
If you prefer being directly on the beach, the ground floor Ocean Front Wild Goose Rooms are a sure bet. The suites in the Yankee Girl are Ocean Front as well, but really no nicer than our room with two double beds. All of the rooms are equipped with a small refrigerator and wet bar - a bonus when traveling with kids. There is complimentary wi-fi throughout the resort along with complimentary chairs and umbrellas on the beach.
Food at Sea Crest Hotel
Kudos to the master mind who created the home-like Lobby Cafe serving Starbucks coffee, fresh fruit, bagels, cereal and other continental style fast foods from 7am to 11am. You can read the Times while the kids lounge on the sofa and eat their cereal and you will feel like you never left home. For lunch we dined at Red's, a casual eatery serving pub-style cuisine on the beach front, poolside deck. The kids enjoyed the fresh-made mozzarella pizza.
Our evenings were devoted to exploring Cape Cod. One night, we visited Woods Hole where you catch the Ferry to Marthas' Vineyard. The kids enjoyed watching the drawbridge rise for the boats to pass through. Another night we headed to the village of North Falmouth where we delighted in pre-dinner shopping along Main Street and an authentic Italian dinner at Osteria La Civetta, a must! Fresh made pasta and homemade bread with olive oil satiated our palettes. For dessert, Cupcapes Of Falmouth are not to be missed.
This is one family trip we will never forget! For more summer fun ideas, check out this post about Park City, Utah in the summer.
Thank you to the Sea Crest Beach Hotel for a most memorable trip to Cape Cod.
