Trip Report New England Coastal Visit

Jump to last reply

We just returned from about 2 weeks visiting Cape Cod and Maine (with a bit of Boston thrown in) and had a wonderful time. The first week of the trip was spent on Cape Cod in Chatham where we rented a house with a group of friends to celebrate a couple of monumental birthdays. We flew from LAX to Boston and then rented a car and drove to Chatham. Of course, we had to stop for some seafood as soon as we hit the cape and stopped at Sam's Seafood in Sandwich where I had some clam chowder and a lobster roll.
The house we rented in Chatham was very nice and easily accomodated our group of ten. It sat right on Oyster Pond so the views and setting were wonderful. It was about a 20 minute walk to the commercial center of Chatham. Our usual plan when we travel with this particular group is that each couple will be responsible for one night's dinner. One of the other two nights we ate out and the other night was when we held the official birthday party and I was in charge of the food for that. We chose the night of our arrival to be our "dine out" night and we went to the Vinings Bistro in Chatham. The food was good but not stellar and the atmosphere was lacking in the charm department. But they were able to handle our group and we were grateful for that.
One of our best discoveries in Chatham was Marion's Pie Shop. I think they provided dessert for every one of our dinners at the house and we enjoyed some of their savory pies for a dinner as well. They also have wonderful muffins and cinnamon rolls that we enjoyed several mornings. I ordered a birthday cake from the Chatham Bakery and it was very good.
While in Chatham we rented bikes and enjoyed riding them around the area and also on the wonderful bike path which runs throughout much of the area. Some of the group also enjoyed kayaking on Oyster Pond.
One day several of us took a ferry from Harwich Port to Nantucket where we enjoyed the day. We took a bus to Siasconset where we wondered around a bit and then spent the rest of the day in Nantucket town where we had a pleasant lunch at Even Keel.
For the birthday party we had other friends come from various destinations and they stayed in inns and hotels in the surrounding area. We hired a trio to play music and had a wonderful party on the patio overlooking Oyster Pond.
