Falmouth Travel Guide

Cape Cod in the Fall is truly a magical season, so today I’m sharing three, close-to-home hotel destinations in Falmouth (and Woods Hole) that you should discover this season.

Falmouth and Woods Hole on Cape Cod during the fall is something special. The summer crowds fade away, leaving you with a laid-back coastal vibe that’s hard to beat. You’ve got these amazing bursts of reds, oranges, and yellows all around, making every street feel like a postcard. And the food? Just as good as the bites you’ll have in the summer, still top-notch, especially when you’re cozied up in one of the classic Cape restaurants. Plus, there’s plenty to do, from shopping local to discover art galleries. Trust me, Falmouth in the fall is the kind of escape you won’t forget. Nature’s beauty and that small-town charm? They’re all here, just waiting for you to soak it in.

Falmouth Hotel: The Captain’s Manor Inn

The Captain’s Manor Inn in Falmouth, MA, is a gem nestled in the heart of Cape Cod. This historic bed and breakfast exudes New England charm and hospitality. Housed in an elegant 1849 sea captain’s home, it offers guests a blend of timeless architecture with modern comforts. The inn features beautifully appointed rooms and suites, each with its own unique character and amenities, ensuring a cozy and memorable stay.

The innkeepers, Patti and Randy, pride themselves on creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere, making guests feel like they’re part of the family. They go above and beyond to provide personalized experiences, from arranging special occasions to offering insider tips on local attractions and dining spots.

Falmouth Hotel: The Coonamessett by Lark Hotels

The Coonamessett, part of the Lark Hotels collection, is a charming boutique hotel located in Falmouth, Massachusetts. Nestled in the heart of Cape Cod, this historic property offers a unique blend of old-world charm and modern amenities.

Originally built in the 1800s, The Coonamessett has been thoughtfully renovated to retain its original character while providing guests with all the comforts of a contemporary hotel. The rooms and suites are beautifully decorated, combining vintage touches with modern conveniences to create a warm and inviting atmosphere.

The hotel’s on-site restaurant, Eli’s Tavern, is a culinary highlight. It offers a farm-to-table dining experience, showcasing the best of local ingredients and flavors in creative and delectable dishes. The restaurant’s commitment to sustainability and community partnerships adds an extra layer of authenticity to the dining experience. We checked into our room and then went back to the Tavern, where there was live music playing and we ordered drinks and desserts to cap off the night after a long day of exploring the Cape.

Because the Coonamessett is surrounded by lush gardens and tranquil outdoor spaces, it provides a peaceful retreat for guests to unwind and relax. The hotel also offers amenities such as a seasonal outdoor pool and complimentary bicycles, encouraging exploration of the picturesque surroundings.

Woods Hole Hotel: Treehouse Lodge

The Treehouse Lodge has been a destination for us a few times before, as it’s the ideal location if you’re coming from a long trip and want to spend the night on the Cape before heading home to MV. But it’s also an ideal location for travelers looking for an idealistic camping vibe, with all the comforts and amenities of an inn.

The feel of these rooms are perfectly imagined camping themed spaces, with built in tree-round shelves, curtains evocative of your Eagle Scout tent flaps, Edison bulbs hanging by your bed and a built in cabinet with clever storage and your own mini-fridge. Its location is just steps away from the Steamship Authority port, making it a perfect place to stay if you’re wanting to get to Martha’s Vineyard for a day trip.

This hotel is also pet-friendly, so book this if you’re traveling with your dog. Although we don’t have a dog, pet-friendly hotels offer a truly inclusive and welcoming experience for travelers that do. They recognize that your furry companions are important members of the family, and provide a space where both humans and pets can feel comfortable and at ease. We love when hotels go the extra mile to ensure a memorable stay for all, creating cherished memories for both pets and their owners alike. Their Fido Friendly Hotel package is truly a great addition to their offerings!

In conclusion, a visit to Falmouth on Cape Cod promises an unforgettable experience, offering a perfect blend of coastal charm, natural beauty, and rich history. The tranquil beaches, vibrant arts scene, and delectable seafood make it a destination that caters to every traveler’s desires. And while you’re here, don’t forget to consider a day trip to Martha’s Vineyard, just a short ferry ride away. This enchanting island adds an extra layer of magic to your Cape Cod adventure, with its picturesque landscapes, quaint towns, and vibrant culture. So, whether you’re exploring Falmouth’s hidden gems or setting sail for Martha’s Vineyard, this corner of New England is sure to leave you with cherished memories for years to come.
