Picture a crackling fire aglow in the fireplace and a warm bath waiting in the wings. Love is in the air and we have our guide to Cape Cod romantic vacations. We’ll help plan your perfect winter getaway to our island home. Located in the historic district of Bass River, the Captain Farris House exudes a charm of its own. With spacious suites and beautiful guest rooms, the Inn provides a warm welcome and gracious hospitality to all who enter.
Choose one of our all-inclusive romance packages, or select an array of items from our a la carte menu to create the perfect ambiance for your Cape Cod getaway. Every stay includes coffee, tea, and sweet treats, a specially prepared 2-course breakfast, complimentary soft drinks and popcorn, plush robes and luxurious bath amenities, and access to our DVD library. For an extra special treat, make a reservation for our delightful Afternoon Tea.
While the Inn sets the stage for your romantic Cape Cod getaway, beyond our property, there are extraordinary opportunities to up the ante on love. Long stretches of sandy beaches and acres of nature trails cry out for a stroll hand-in-hand. Craft breweries and wineries offer tours and tastings to educate and amuse you. And visiting one of Cape Cod’s eclectic museums and galleries is highly recommended by previous guests.
The lure of the lighthouse entices adventurers to map out a route to explore these iconic landmarks that line the coastline of Cape Cod. Meant to keep mariners safe, each lighthouse has a unique beacon with a story to tell and a history to share.
All vacations require at least a few hours of retail therapy. Searching for the perfect treasure to complete your home or wardrobe in one of our unique antique shops and boutiques creates an ideal opportunity to bond over the thrill of the hunt.
And, at the end of the day, what could be more romantic or relaxing than a massage at a local spa? We highly recommend the Beach Plum Spa for some aromatherapy and a side-by-side couples’ massage. Purchase one of their special creams or oils to recreate the experience at home.
Starry Starry Nights
Nothing speaks of love as loudly as a romantic dinner by candlelight or a table for two by the water on a starry, starry night. The food scene on Cape Cod remains vibrant throughout the year, with outdoor seating in summer and cozy fireside seating in winter. Clam shacks, farm-to-table restaurants, ethnic cafes and bistros, and waterfront eateries share a common theme of fresh and local whenever possible. (Please note that several eateries are only open seasonally. We recommend checking their hours of operation first or feel free to ask us for a suggestion.)
Cape Cod offers a rich history of live entertainment in theaters, music venues, and art centers. The Cape Cod Cultural Center, our neighbor and one of the best cultural venues around, offers a full roster of events and activities literally right across the street from the Captain Farris House. Sign up for a cooking class, evening concert, or educational workshop, depending on your personal preferences, for a special way to make your romantic getaway memorable.
Yarmouth Winter Carnival: February 18 – 20, 2023
What could be more fun than attending a winter carnival replete with an outdoor skating rink, food trucks, s’mores, and more? Mark your calendars for this 2nd annual winter event on Cape Cod. Let Jack Frost nip at your nose, then return to the Inn to warm up with a cup of tea, a warm bath, or just to put your feet up in front of the fire.
With our guide to Cape Cod romantic vacations in toe, you’ll have everything you need to plan the perfect getaway to our lovely spit of sand on the ocean. Book your favorite room online, or call us for the ideal accommodation for your weekend or weekday getaway.
