The start of a new year means the chance to fill your calendar with incredible getaways the whole family will love. There’s no better destination for your next escape than Lighthouse Inn. As a premier family resort on Cape Cod, we have everything you need for the best experience possible. However, in order to have the perfect, or almost perfect, vacation, you need to put some work in before you arrive.

For more than 80 years, we have welcomed guests to our oceanfront resort, which means we’ve been part of countless family vacations. This means we have years of experience we can draw upon to help make our resort the best it possibly can be. It also means we know what work and preparation go into planning your trip. Here are just a few tips for ways to have a phenomenal vacation.

Vacations are the perfect time to get outside your comfort zone and try a new activity or cuisine. Try beach yoga, offered in July and August, as part of our special recreational games. Take in views of the shoreline from out on the open water on a kayak or paddle board rental from Bass River Kayaks & Paddle Boards. Expand your palate by enjoying incredible seafood at The Waterfront Restaurant, our on-site dining option. For more recommendations on popular adventures to check out, visit our blog.

Tip 3: Enjoy the Quiet Moments Together

Sometimes vacations, which should be a chance to relax, are so over-packed with activities you want a break after your vacation. While there is plenty of things to do and see near our West Dennis resort, you don’t want to overdo it. You can have just as much fun making s’mores around a bonfire as you can out exploring.
