“Really Basic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013 via mobile

Bed comfortable and quiet place. But very basic, old style clunky TV, only coffee was in room and not good...and the outlet it was plugged into didn't work. Value decent only because friend had arranged group rate for wedding guests...otherwise I would have felt that I overpaid, especially in off-season. Hard to grasp why so many Excellent ratings.

My daughter picked this property for both of us as she was running in the Cape Cod Marathon this past weekend (Oct 27, 2013). She had Room 20, I had Room 34. The property is quiet, quaint, clean, and includes nice amenities (e.g. microwave, small refrigerator) as well as chairs to sit outside to look at the water. I thought each room would have the same furniture (like the big chains), but they don't, which was a welcome surprise!! It was wonderful to see my room vs. her room, and how differently they were decorated. Both rooms were delightful.

Room Tip: Ask the management for the most quaint, nicely decorated rooms. We believe that Room #20 and Room...

We hadn't appreciated that this was a 'lodge'. Our fault, but were very pleased with the accommodation.
The room was immaculately clean and was fairly roomy. The location is very pretty and convenient for all around Falmouth.
We had excellent help from 'the office ' who were able to give us good help and advice on where to visit.

We had the best time ever! The resort is fantastic. The best private getaway on the Cape. Everything was perfect - the grounds are pristine, the rooms are very clean and very comfortable. Would definitely recommend Cape Wind to all

Room Tip: Any of the rooms would be perfect

When my wife and I got married in 2010, we were looking for a nice place on the Cape for our honeymoon. Something near activity, near water, but a place that would feel like a home, and private. We found CapeWind, and have returned every year for our anniversary since then! This family owned resort is clean, comfortable, and offers some great on-site activities and services. We have been able to rent a pet-friendly room with our dog that also includes a kitchenette. We love the pool and access to the salt water lake in the back, including use of kayaks and paddle boats. Whenever we have needed anything, like a DVD player, directions or recommendations, extra utensils or cups, or anything else, the owners and staff have gone above and beyond to make it happen. There are other "resorts" in Falmouth that boast the same amenities, but there really is nothing that is off the main road enough to feel like you are in a private space, except for CapeWind. Yet, Falmouth is a hopping place on the Cape, and a gateway to other towns like like Barnstable, Sandwich, and Hyannis which are all easy drives, as well as Woods Hole and the Martha's Vineyard ferry. If you forgot anything, there is a Walmart and Stop and Shop not too far away as well. It's the perfect balance of privacy and convenience. Though we have never had any complaints, we notice that every time we return, something is a little better. The last time we were there the outsides of the buildings had a fresh coat of paint, showing their commitment to keeping this resort updated and in good shape. Every year, we have taken advantage of a Sunday - Friday 5-night special which is an amazing deal for such an incredible location with such great services.

Room Tip: Rooms with kitchenette are a great value, especially when you consider money you save from cooking b...

My husband and I stayed here last weekend for our league's Cape Cod golf weekend and really enjoyed this hotel. The hotel is 50 years old but the rooms are very clean and comfortable, the grounds are beautiful and we liked how much it represented the heydays of the Cape. We enjoyed the outdoor seating area outside the room which gave us a chance to talk our fellow golfers. I loved "Miss Freddy", our beautiful doggy greeter and the hospitality was great. Unfortunately, our air conditioner wasn't very strong, so while the bed was comfortable the room was too warm at night, and there wasn't much of a breeze to cool things off. It would also be nice if there were a fan in the bathroom and a bigger ice machine than the ice maker on the refrigerator. But all in all, I thought it was a great place and we will probably be back next year. I think it would be a great place to have a wedding, family reunion, etc.

Room Tip: Make sure the air conditioner works in your room, and I would take a small fan to put in the bathroo...

I spent 3 nights last week here with my two boys. I had last been to the Capewind as a child myself almost 35 years ago. It was fantastic to relive all my childhood memories of the place while giving my children the experience themselves. We had a great week - biking, Martha's Vineyard, Provincetown, Old Silver Beach. Our room was the perfect place to unwind after busy days - clean, spacious. Loved reading on the back "porch", watching the boys play in the "backyard" and pool. We were looking forward to our trip all summer and were already planning next year's visit on the drive home!!
