Checking in to the Sandbars Inn, we got to meet the super-nice owner, Patty. She helped us figure out which beaches were best for viewing whales this time of year (Race Point) and which restaurants were open during the week of our stay-many were just opening for the season. We were delighted to see our ground floor room, from which we could walk out onto the hotel's private beach. The view from the room and the beach was beautiful, especially at sunset. The room itself was clean and well-appointed, with a kitchen, flat screen TV, Ipod dock, and comfortable bed. We had a great few days sitting on the beach watching whales, walking down Commercial Street, and enjoying a meal at Mac's in Wellfleet. One reason we chose Sandbars for our baby-moon vacation (expecting a baby in 4 weeks or so!) is that it is a dog-friendly inn, but after such a pleasant stay we would definitely stay there again.
