“Perfect for our last minute weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 11, 2013 via mobile

Spent 3 hours Sat night calling hotels/motels from Truro to Harwich and everything was full, except for the Wishing Well. We were concerned but booked it anyway. The 1 bedroom cottage was perfect for us. A little tight for 5 of us the first night, perfect when it was just 4 of us the 2nd night. Other than the queen in the bedroom, remaining beds were a little a-typical but it worked out fine. Breakfast was a little weak with only coffee, oj, and lemon poppyseed muffins so we were smart to buy breakfast makings the first night. Coffee was excellent. Everything was extremely clean and updated. The 10 minute walk to the beach is more like 20 minutes but the beaches were excellent, worth the walk.

Extremely impressed by the quality of service, cleanliness, and attention to detail at this unexpected beach getaway. We enjoyed two nights in the one bedroom cabin over the holiday. It perfectly accommodated a family of four and provided easy access to beaches, shopping, and access to the lower Cape. Can't wait to book again!

Wishing Well on Rte 28 Harwich Mass provides low cost accomodations , it is easy to get to, clean, safe , a/c, and a great value.
A super place use as your central spot as you explore the cape. It is not a 5 star place and the pricing reflects its true value

My girlfriend and I have taken a liking to vacationing in B&Bs because of the cozy atmosphere. We always wanted to go to Cape Cod and needed to find a cheap place to stay. We were in luck! Everyone who worked there was friendly and helpful. The surrounding town was adorable, and we were right in the middle of the Cape so traveling to each town was easy. The Lighthouse Cafe next door has great homemade food. And absolutely visit Auntie's Ice Cream Parlor in town! Friendliest workers. Only thing I could complain about was the lack of Wi-Fi, but it was not a deal breaker for me. If you want to visit Cape Cod, definitely consider this your place to stay.

We had no electricity in Dennisport and needed a place to stay. My sister found the Cape Cod Wishing Well calling places from Worcester. I'm glad she did! The place is adorable and the staff was fantastic, kind and accommodating. The Lighthouse Cafe next door was great for breakfast too. Thank you for having us and making us feel so comfortable.

PLace is ok, but what bothered us was that everything was done and run very cheaply. Never when you needed there was anybody in the office, you have to use a phone to reach somebody and at least for a foreigner getting the WLAN passwords right through muddy phone line is mission impossible. Also the phone was set so that you could only push the redial button and since the last time it had gone to operator I was only able to reach them. This is too bad service for 200 USD/night accommodation. WLAN was very slow. Connection shows all bars but just getting a basic news page to open takes 5 minutes, completely useless at least in the cabin where we stayed and should not been included in amenities of this place.
The cottage was basically ok but floors and dining table were dirty and again the kitchen was equipped with cheapest stuff I have ever seen. The forks were like from kids toys. In principal the pool was in use, but again you have to "See Wally or Staff to unlock" but... as nobody is never around, getting into pool would mean a phone call and waiting for somebody to show up. That´s it for a quick morning swim before your hot day.

I have stayed at the Cape Cod Wishing Well several times. It's just what I need on Cape Cod, conveniently located, near the beach, restaurants, and shopping, reasonably priced and open all year round. The rooms are very clean, the staff friendly and promptly responsive to any need. I will continue to stay there for my regular Cape Cod get away weekends.

Room Tip: There is a range of rooms available, from singles with one queen sized bed, to studios with a single...
