My family and I spent a long Columbus Day weekend at the Green Harbor Resort in West Yarmouth and really enjoyed our stay. This was out first time staying on the cape and I found a very reasonable rate on a one bedroom townhouse for four nights. This was the closing weekend for this seasonal resort and most of the...

We arrived on the 9th of October and stayed for two nights. The view from our room was wonderful and very relaxing. The resort is immaculate inside and out. When we come back to the Cape we never want stay anywhere else. Our only regret is that you not opened year round.

On this beautiful 65 degree 2nd of November Saturday afternoon, it is quite easy to imagine being open year-round. Those of us who work here know that the northeast winds of winter, and the bone chilling breezes off the water in the spring, would send guests running for warmer accommodations. We will be both inside and out preparing the resort... More

We weren't sure what to expect from the Green Harbor Resort as we drove through a commercial area of West Yarmouth.

Thank you for writing such a descriptive review of your stay at Green Harbor. Right now we are cleaning up and closing down for the winter months ahead. The lawn is still green and the flowers are still blooming, and it is lonely out there without the sounds of guests enjoying their vacations. We do take reservation calls year-round, and... More

We were looking for lodging with a direct water-view that we could afford for our early fall visit to the Cape. Off-season rates make it affordable & the direct view of the water and well kept grounds make it a pleasant respite! Located nearly on the Hyannis / West Yarmouth town line, it is perfectly located for mid-cape exploring. The... More

Stayed here 3 nights to recharge batteries after a week in New York and Boston. Ideal base to chill out and explore Cape Cod. We stayed as three adults in 2 bedroom apartment (2 queen beds in one room and 2 singles in other). The spacious living room/ kitchen (well equipped) looked out onto the bay and had an adjoining...

Great large apartment sized room with 2 bedroom & 2 baths. On water with private beach & heated pool. Beautiful view from balcony. Centrally located on Cape but a mile off the main drag makes it feel very quiet. Very reasonably priced (off season rates). Room is certainly not upscale (80's-90's decor) but is unbelievably clean & well kept. Many... More

Thank you for sharing your vacation experience. I apologize for the noise situation. The suites are the only first floor or second floor units, so perhaps next time you could book a free standing house or a side by side duplex. All the units here have kitchens, and many have a water view. The rates are lower in the off... More

Our family of four (kids aged 8 and 11) stayed for five nights at Green Harbor and we were not disappointed!

We stayed for two nights and had a wonderful time. Cottages were super clean and staff was friendly. We use the Spa at the Red Jacket Beach resort and it was perfect. This is a great place to stay. The location is right on the water on one side and the river on the other, very peaceful.
