We arrived at Mermaid Lane to find a large, beautiful and clean beach house. There were helpful instructions and recommendations of places to visit along with a nice bottle of wine to greet us. We had five adults and 3 children (ages 2, 3 and 5 yrs old) with us and found the house to be more than comfortable and accommodating for our party. The yard was huge for the kids to run and play with bats, balls and frisbees. An added bonus were the blueberry bushes that we enjoyed snacking on with the owners' permission. :)
We had sunny weather in the 80s all week so we spent a lot of time at Campground Beach that was just a short walk. Being a bayside beach, it was good for the kids to wade, swim, and explore for seashells and creatures for hours. We also rode bikes along the 20+ mile rail trail, rented a boat in Wellfleet and hiked some trails at the nearby Wylie Park (there is also a clean lake and kids playground there). We spent a day in Provincetown and visited the Pilgrim Monument and museum. The kids loved climbing the 252 ft tower (our 3 yr old needed a lift about half-way), seeing the museum and then taking a 75 min kids harbor cruise (where we saw seals, lobsters, crabs and views from an underwater camera).
We spent most of our meals grilling on the big deck and roasting marshmallows in the huge fire pit. Our favorite restaurants were Arnold's for seafood and the Red Barn for amazing pizza, ice cream, beer and mini golf.
Overall we had a really fun and memorable stay and would definitely return again!
