The Cape House Guests

The visitors to the Cape House come from various types of organizations such as group homes, Boys & Girls Clubs from different cities, community youth organizations and inner-city schools from all over New England. Our visitors come to spend a few days, a weekend or even a week to enjoy the Cape House and explore Cape Cod away from an urban or institutional setting.

The setting is a large old-fashioned house on a fieldstone foundation, a place where the visitors are guests and where everyone leaves the house in better condition than at arrival. The experience of the house, the grounds and lake is memorable because of the uniqueness of the property. Wooded boundaries surrounding an open field and a sandy beach on the lake creates a private and safe place for recreation and fun for visiting groups.

Comments left by our guests:

College Bound Dorchester (after school program):
“All of the students who joined us on this trip were first-timers to the Cape House. They loved it! Two comments I heard were, ‘This is the best field trip I have EVER gone on’ and ‘why didn’t you tell us, you said the house was nice but you didn’t say it was fabulous!’ Thanks for helping us give our students once in a lifetime experience.”

Nashua Children’s Home:
“Our children were able to experience what a family vacation would be like.”
