The Most Unique Airbnbs You Can Find In Cape Cod

Considered one of the most affluent New England destinations, Cape Cod is a popular summer vacation spot (via Thrillist). A classic American town to travel to, Cape Cod is known for its over-the-top and patriotic Fourth of July celebrations. From its picturesque beach spots and seafood delights, it's no wonder Cape Cod is always buzzing in the summer season. According to the National Park Service, over 4 million visited the Cape Cod National Seashore in 2021. Ranking among the top national parks in traffic, Cape Cod is one of the beach destinations everyone wants to see.

Because Cape Cod is such a sought-after vacation spot, it's often tough to find an available hotel. In the summer, when tourism is at its peak, finding a hotel with a room can be challenging. That's why more people are turning to Airbnb to find a place to stay during their vacation. However, with more Airbnbs opening up each day, it's up to the owners to find ways to attract visitors to their homes. Thankfully, this has created some very unique Airbnbs. Cape Cod's Airbnb hosts have created one-of-a-kind atmospheres that continue to draw visitors to the charming town.
