Cape Cod - Family friendly self catering accommodation

Hi

We're looking to go to Cape Cod for a week- 10 days, late July. We've got a 2 year old boy so find it easier to do self catering, but would be good to have facilities (pool etc) close by. We've been to Cape Cod a couple of times, but this was years ago and in the heady days of not having children(!) so although we know the area failry well we've never had to look for this criteria.

We've got another baby on the way so this will be our last hoiday for years so don't mind spending a bit and would like something quite luxurious.

Any suggestions on where we start the hunt would be much appreciated.

Thanks, Tracey

The Red Jacket resorts which are frequently mentioned have all this. Also, Ocean Edge condos are another option.

check out weneedavacation.com, vrbo.com or cyberrentals.com for more options.

Poppenesset Inn in New Seabury/Mashpee is a great little village to stay in with cottages, condos, a little area with shops, close to a super market and great outdoor mall. I would put it in the little more luxurious category.

To really pamper yourself you might consider Chatham Bars Inn or Wequassett inn. They do have family accommodations and pools but I am not sure if they have full kitchens.

What about a villa on or very close to the Bay side beaches with their very gentle wave action? Try Ocean Edge in Brewster. Be careful about the accommodations. You want to be in touch with the resort and not get caught up in the condo rentals that are on the golf course side away from the beach.

I just noticed that you posted on the West Dennis board. Take a look at the Lighthouse Inn. It is not self-catering however they have a package that includes meals and they sit directly ON Nantucket Sound. If you are going in season then they have a children's program. The 'resort' is indeed in the old Cape Cod style which may well suit your desires. On one hand they have shuffle board and on the other they have jet skis.

And you can visit the Sand Bar down the street with the famous Rock King. (I think he is still around)
