How many Lighthouses are on Cape Cod?

How many Lighthouses are on Cape Cod?

There is something so comforting about a lighthouse, the notion of saving the lives of hardworking sailors, fisherman, and travelers on ships. The Cape has many historic lighthouses for visitors to visit. Our favorite is the Highland Light House in North Truro, which sits 100 feet over the sea and has amazing views of the ocean. Several years ago we had a lovely German couple who decided to have their wedding ceremony at our inn and a celebration picnic afterwards in the field next to the light house…how perfect!

We once had two sisters stay at Brewster by the Sea Inn and Spa whose main objective during their stay was to get a picture of every lighthouse on the Cape. Happy to report they found all 16 lighthouses!

At our new Cape Cod Bed and Breakfast, Captain Freeman inn, built in the 1860’s the cupola on the top was very large and could have functioned as a small lighthouse for the packet ships running to and from Boston.    We found an old picture of the innCaptain Freeman |  | Brewster By the Sea Cape Cod B&B | Brewster, MA

A pandemic escape!

Amy and her staff are incredible. The attention to detail is hands down the best. Given all that is going on in this Covid-19 world, we felt safe and comfortable. Check-in was contactless. Our room was perfect. The breakfasts were wonderful and loved the cookies in the afternoon. The icing on the cake was Sweet Pea, Amy's dog, an absolute love! Amy, thank you, we'll be back!

Outstanding getaway!

This was our second time staying at this lovely inn. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the grounds are both spacious and tranquil. There is even a pool which is an excellent way to cool off after a day exploring the nearby trails or bike path. The breakfasts are creative and delicious and very filling. Amy, the owner and innkeeper is wonderful. She takes great care of the property and is so welcoming to her guests. She is very gracious in helping with advice on what to do in the area and making dinner reservations. We were among her first guests as Massachusetts began to "open up" during the Covid 19 crisis. She took great care to assure that everything was done to make her guests safe and comfortable. We look forward to returning.

A very enjoyable and relaxing stay

We had another wonderful experience here at Brewster By The Sea.  Lovely walks on the Flats and enjoying the local food!  In spite of COVID, Amy & staff helped us feel SAFE and at home!
