Editor's Rating


This expansive beachfront property features two hotels and several vacation rental properties. The 3-acre property sits on both sides of the street and all guests are welcome to use all the facilities and amenities while the hotel is open from April to October.

Families will love being steps away from the beach and ocean, as well as two outdoor and one indoor pool and a large game room. The guestrooms feature fully equipped kitchens and the multi-bedroom vacation rentals are ideal for larger families or groups. Ideally located on the beach and only a short walk, bike ride or drive away from numerous restaurants, families will love staying at the Corsair and Cross Rip while on a Cape Cod family vacation.

Find the Best Price for Your Stay

All of the guestrooms include a DVD player, refrigerator and small table and a bathtub in the bathrooms. Cribs and rollaway beds are available, as well. For two children, there is no additional fee for children 14 years old and younger, so the first two kids stay free.

The guestrooms at the Corsair feature queen beds and a sleeper sofa. The kitchenette includes an oven, stove, full refrigerator, microwave, sink and a table for four. The guestrooms also feature a balcony or patio that overlooks the outdoor pool. A Jacuzzi tub can also be found in some of the Corsair rooms.

Cross Rip
The 22 guestrooms are in a U-shape around an outdoor pool area. The guestrooms feature queen beds, a sleeper sofa, full kitchen with an oven, stove, full refrigerator, microwave, sink and a table for four. A patio or balcony area overlooks the outdoor pool or beach.

Vacation Rentals
There are four vacation rentals on the property, once of which is waterfront and overlooks the beach and ocean. Each of the properties are three to four bedrooms, have a minimum of two and half bathrooms and include full kitchens. Some of them also feature a fireplace, large deck area, and large dining table. They can sleep up to 10 people.

The vacation rentals often book a year in advance and returning guests have priority each year. So plan far in advance if your family is interested in booking one of the vacation rentals. There is no housekeeping at the rental properties and most rentals run Sunday to Sunday.


Love being on the ocean/

by divadeb51

Nice place to stay-quiet and clean. Loved the jacuzzi tub!! Close to a lot of places of interest and loved being right on the ocean. There were chairs out so didn't have to lug anything to the beach which was great. -would return there again!
