Walking Cape Cod in winter is a sublime experience — enjoy clear days, spectacular Cape light, wide open beaches, strong winds, and extraordinary bird life including hawks, arctic owls and more!  Year rounders know that Cape Cod winter walks are one of the best kept secrets on the whole East Coast.

Winter rates at our local B&B’s are excellent in this the quieter season, and the beaches are wide open.  Want to bring your pet?  No problem walking on one of Falmouth’s 70 pristine beaches (several of our members have pet friendly rooms).  Looking for romantic vistas to enjoy over Valentine’s Day?  A Cape Cod winter walk can be a great place to hold hands and enjoy nature together.

The following photos are of a five mile walk on a windy January through Bourne Farm (local preservation land), along the Shining Sea bike path, past cranberry bogs and out to Chappaquoit Beach in West Falmouth.  Please enjoy the photos, bundle up and come visit us on Cape Cod in the winter.

Our second big storm of the winter blew through Falmouth today leaving behind a beautiful blanket of snow.  As the wind settled down mid morning, innkeepers served warm breakfasts and then bustled outdoors to clear snow from walkways, stairs and sidewalks.  Visiting Cape Cod in snow is one of the greatest parts of winter, and you will find locals clustered in coffee shops swapping storm tales, sharing a Guiness or two at the pubs on Main Street, and headed out on the bike path in cross country skis.

There are so many great reasons to visit the Cape in winter, especially on the eve of a snowfall, but here are our top five:

1) Beaches are wide open and gorgeous for winter walks

2) No line at Maison Villatte Bakery (real french croissant au chocolat!)

3) Warm welcome from Falmouth innkeepers

4) Snuggling by the fire with a complimentary hot cocoa at your friendly B&B

5) Taking the Martha’s Vineyard ferry in snow offers stunning vistas of the island.

Here are photos of some of the Falmouth B&B’s in this lovely snow fall.  Captain Tom Lawrence House, Palmer House, Woods Hole Passage and Woods Hole Inn are all open at this time of year.  Captains Manor and Inn at Siders Lane are beautiful in snow, but not open for guests until closer to spring time.
