As always, the service is friendly and the rooms are clean . Great option for a more cost conscious traveler. The location is perfect for vacationers looking to spend time in both Harwich and Chatham.

The inn is on a quiet road conveniently located to other towns on the Cape. Owners are very friendly and helpful. We had a very pleasant first visit to Cape Cod while staying there. We will recommend this inn to anyone looking for a bargain!

This is your basic motel but very clean, great grounds with a pool and a nice continental breakfast. Great value and location. Rooms have a nice sized fridge and microwave. Also grill on grounds for your use.

The Shoals is a lovely spot and an easy walk to a beautiful beach on Nantucket Sound. Rooms are very well kept and clean with some recent enhancements in some rooms, which is very nice. A dip in their pool after a day at the beach is priceless. The innkeepers could not be more friendly and helpful. I would highly... More

Our family stayed at Handkerchief Shoals over the long July 4th weekend. We regularly vacation in this area and usually rent a house for the week, but since we were only going for a long weekend gave Handkerchief Shoals a try based on all the positive reviews. We were not disappointed! Our room was clean, spacious, and nicely maintained and... More

The owners, Joe & Annemarie are on the... More

I have been spending at least one week a year at Handkerchief Shoals for many years. The rooms are clean and well-maintained, the pool is great, and the location is handy to one of the great local beaches. AnnMarie and Joe are wonderful inn-keepers and have set themselves high standards which they consistently achieve. I really love this place and... More

We recently spent two days at the motel. The rooms were spotless and the owners (Ann Marie and Joe) were accommodating and VERY friendly. The motel was very well kept. The pool was very nice. We plan to return next time we need a place to stay at the Cape!

I just spent a long weekend at this lovely Inn. The pool looked great, although we walked the 15 mins to the beach each day. The owners were warm and welcoming and happy to help with our questions. The area is lovely, within reach of Chatham and many other mid-Cape towns - lots of choice for restaurants, shops and things... More
