“Our new favorite getaway!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

We visited the Anchorage on the Cove this September for a nice family getaway from Boston with our toddler and our dog. Inside, the cabin is comfortable, clean and has all of your basic amenities. The views are spectacular, the deck was heavenly and the grounds were impeccable. Kathy and Dennis are some of the kindest and friendliest innkeepers we have met and went out of their way to make sure our visit was great (including an offer to take us on their boat so we could visit the local cove seals - see pics below!). Their dog Spencer and ours, Dewey, were fast friends. If you're looking for a quiet and relaxing getaway, you should definitely check out The Anchorage on the Cove. We'll definitely be back.

This was our first time staying here. We were so lucky to find this little tucked away gem! It also had a couple of dog-friendly cottages! The property owners Kathy & Dennis were absolutely wonderful! Kathy greeted us with wonderful maps and information booklets for the area and both she and Dennis offered us great suggestions on local restaurants, beaches, and places to go. The Pilot House - the cottage we stayed in was pristine clean and wonderfully quiet. We could hear the softness of the cove behind the property and that was wonderful! The cottage was equipped for housekeeping, and we took advantage of their additional linen service which provided bed linens and towels etc. The cottage had a great kitchen, wonderful dining area that looked out the back to an expansive view of the cove, a large back porch, two bedrooms, a bathroom with shower, and a large living room area with a gas fireplace which was great as it was cold while we where there. We were there for 4 full days and are planning another visit as soon as we can for next season! And the real judge of quality is our very energetic 14-year old pup who gives it a 4 paw rating! She is very particular and was able to relax and sleep through the night along with the both of us! She had a great time and like us, was sorry to leave!

Dennis, Kathy and Spencer the lab are wonderful hosts - generous, warm and informative. They really want to share their corner of paradise with you and want to be sure you are happy and enjoying yourselves. Topsail cottage is lovely and relaxing with your own deck right over the water. We were 3 adults there for a week, and it felt comfortable and and plenty spacious. A true cozy Cape cottage, well furnished and with comfortable beds. Hanging out on the deck and watching the sun, water, birds, seals and fish was one of our favorite activities of the entire trip. We will definitely return to Anchorage again and again. Thanks for a great vacation.

Room Tip: Topsail is a great cottage right on the water and very quiet. It is not one of the pet-available co...

We had a wonderful time with our dog on the Cape at Anchorage on the Cove. Kathy and Dennis were super and the accomodations at the Bell Buoy cottage were wonderful. It was a quaint lilttle cottage with a nice deck (wonderful place for breakfast each morning) and a gas fireplace for those cool Sept nights. The location in Eastham was great to get to the CCNS beaches where we sat, read and enjoyed the waves. If you're looking for a great spot convenient to the beaches (bay-side and ocean-side) as well as great restaurants - this is it.

The delightful innkeepers at Anchorage on the Cove -- Kathy, Dennis, and Spencer the pup -- have shared and truly achieved their dream of an enchanting spot for guests.... Especially for those traveling with pooches! Charming, comfortable, and well thought through accommodations await you! Considerate touches are provided, such as maps, movies, nice stemware -- and even a lint brush! (Essential while traveling with a dog!) Absolutely unparalleled front row views of the Town Cove in Eastham, can be yours... We were even treated to a triple rainbow over our cottage during our visit! This would be an amazing place to rent every cottage and apartment and have an unforgettable family reunion, memorable wedding or outstanding retreat.

Room Tip: As of 2012, Pet Friendly Accommodations are limited to the Bell Buoy Cottage and the Top Deck Apartm...

This was our first family vacation to the Cape and Anchorage on the Cove and it has been decided that it will now become "tradition". The Anchorage on the Cove is a little piece of heaven.
The cottages are well-kept, extremely clean, and cozy. Our family of four felt right at home and had plenty of room. We stayed in The Foremast cottage, which is right on the cove with a beautiful deck. The livingroom/kitchen has big windows that go around the room and look out onto the cove and deck. I could not imagine a more peaceful view to wake up to each morning. The deck allowed our toddler twins to play outside in the evening as we cooked dinner on the grill and watched the sun go down after another terrific day at the beach.
The location of the Ancorage on the Cove is terrific. We were close to both ocean and bay beaches, as well as fantastic restaurants. There is a large Stop and Shop a short drive away, which is so helpful if you are planning to do any cooking or need a few groceries. Provincetown and Wellfleet were both close to drive to, as well as Chatham and other charming areas.
The owners of the Anchorage, Dennis and Kathy, were extremely welcoming and helpful. Kathy brought over maps of neighboring areas and marked places of interest for our family. She was available if we needed anything and made us feel so welcome. Dennis took time to tell us about the history of the place and once again made sure that our family was having a great stay.
On the day our family was to leave, one of our sons looked at us and said "I no leave the vacation house." I think our entire family felt the same way...none of us wanted to leave this "little piece of heaven", but we know for sure that we will return!

This was a delightful way to enjoy Cape Cod with family. The setting is peaceful and relaxing and convenient to many attractions and beaches. The owners were extremely helpful in providing many accurate tips about local restaurants and other highlights. Our family of four enjoyed the spacious apartment with a private deck and a beautiful view. A great advantage over a hotel or motel is the opportunity to do your own cooking in the kitchen or on the outdoor grill while overlooking the lovely cove.

Room Tip: Review the website to select accommodations with the right size for your party.
