From cozy B&Bs and quaint hotels to ritzy oceanside villas, there's no shortage of lodging options on Cape Cod. And with the addition of these new(er) and newly renovated properties, there's now even more to choose from, when booking your temporary home away from home.

Here's a look at some of the Cape’s new kids on the block.

P-Town Plush

Sometimes, it’s fun to stay in the heart of the action. Other times, it’s nice to be as close as you can get to it, without sacrificing your need for a quiet retreat. At the new AWOL (brought to you by Lark Hotels), you're within walking distance of the shops and eateries of bustling Commercial Street, but removed enough that you can relax in pure peace by AWOL's firepit, or with a drink from the hotel's private bar, as you gaze out at Provincetown's iconic moors. Each guestroom at the boutique hotel offers views of serene grasslands, along with private outdoor spaces to enjoy them (one of the rooms is pictured above). AWOL’s soothing decor embraces a cozy modern style with plush sandstone-colored linens, navy accents and rope embellishments. Grab the sunscreen and borrow one of the inn’s fat-tired beach cruisers before hitting the shore.

Quaint Quarters
Inn on Main embraces both the past and the present. Built in 1837 and renovated in 2019, the historic Yarmouth Port property was once a sea captain’s home. Now, the restored guesthouse offers six individually designed rooms, each with its own personality and charm. Options include the tranquil seafoam palette of the Yarmouth room, or the black & ivory tones in the Orleans Room, which also offers a toasty wood-burning fireplace. Before heading to nearby Gray’s Beach, fuel up with a freshly prepared two-course gourmet breakfast. After a long day exploring the area’s galleries, shops and museums, pick out a pillow from the inn’s “pillow menu” to rest your weary head.

The “I Do” View
An elevated pool overlooking the expansive Nantucket Sound and 400 feet of private beach weren’t quite enough for the Pelham House Resort’s founding family. In the time since its inception in 1997, owners have sought to create an upscale experience for wedding parties and vacationers alike. The latest evolution of this Dennis Port venue includes extensive hotel and lobby updates finished in May 2019, and most of the plush guestrooms offer amazing water views. Guests have exclusive access to the newly updated bar, a trendy space is decked out in sleek glass subway tiles and white leather seats. Ever-evolving, 2020 promises future expansions including a rooftop bar, restaurant and permanent oceanfront wedding space.

Rooms with a View

The Cape Cod Canal is a favorite spot for riding bicycles and catching stripers, as well as an active waterway for boating. You’ll get to overlook it all from the newly opened Hampton Inn Cape Cod Canal. In addition to easy highway access and its proximity to the Canal's paved bikeway (as well a seasonal shuttle to get you around), there’s plenty to do at the hotel: take a dip in the heated indoor pool, reach a personal best on brand new workout equipment or savor one of the Hampton Inn's signature hearty (and free) breakfasts.

Cool Meets Chic

Aiden by Best Western is one of the company’s latest, and perhaps most eclectic, brands. The label’s suburban boutique hotels are each individually designed. Like its kinsmen in Austin and South Korea, the newly opened Aiden by Best Western @ Cape Point in West Yarmouth celebrates local flavor in its chic decor. Throughout the hotel, you’ll find intriguing bits of Cape-crafted curated artwork, where guests are encouraged to create a “selfie moment.” The sleek, understated rooms are highlighted with iconic images from around the peninsula, such as an up-close view of the Sagamore Bridge.

Bountiful Breakfasts
Some people come to the Inn at Yarmouth Port because it's located in the heart of the village. Others are drawn to the inn's new 600-square-foot garden patio, inviting firepit, and updated bedrooms. However, based on the reviews, breakfast is what keeps visitors coming back to this charming seven-room inn. Meals are multi-course and made-to-order with locally-sourced ingredients. Highlights include artisan French toast with a homemade berry compote, and breakfast paninis made with prosciutto, pesto, pear, cheddar cheese and baby arugula right from the inn's garden. A leisurely stroll to Cape Cod Bay or an afternoon of kayaking will be just the ticket after such a generous start.

Royal Reno
After decades of serving families, couples and independent travelers, the Hyannis Plaza Hotel has undergone a major makeover. Considering the hotel has 141 guest rooms, the new management certainly had their hands full. Modern conveniences have been added, including eco-friendly toilets, sunken jacuzzi tubs, and quad shower heads. To truly indulge, stay in the richly decorated Plaza Suite. Between its canopied king bed, Italian marble bathroom, and optional in-room massage, you’ll feel like a royal in no time.
