Shoreway Acres Inn

Cape Cod, New England

The hotel

If you're looking for an authentic Cape Cod experience, then Shoreway Acres Inn is the place to be. This friendly, third-generation, family-run resort is set in acres of lawns interspersed with elm trees in the heart of historic Falmouth Village. This secluded location offers respite from the everyday bustle yet is just a short walk from Main Street and the beach with pretty views of Martha's Vineyard and Nobska Lighthouse. The Inn began as the nine-room Worthington House, a sea captain's home dating back to 1806. It expanded to include three more historic homes and two traditional hotel lodges, giving the Inn 80 rooms set in a nostalgic atmosphere. ShoreWay Acres’ family and staff are dedicated to keeping the Inn’s rich history and tradition alive for generations to come.

The buildings and rooms are a bit older, which has a certain homey feel that many appreciate. Be sure to bring your own hair dryer and when you go to the pool room, the entrance is on the bottom floor where the breakfast is; also, the small pool is NOT a hot tub (I made that mistake and was very disappointed).

The owner also bought us some cookies for our journey to the airport on the day we left................I cannot recommend this place highly enough. Read less

There is a beautiful banquette room which they use to host wedding receptions and other events. Read less
