Rich in History and Sand & Sea Life

With scenic beaches along Nantucket Sound, endearing local shops and galleries, cozy pubs and restaurants, and beautiful spired churches, what’s not to love about the charm of Harwich Port? 

Rich in history, visitors love the story and charm behind this Cape Cod gem

“With its face to the sea and its welcoming shoreline, ‘The Port’ was settled by seamen and fishermen before the American Revolution. Boatbuilding, sail-making, and carpentry employed many residents, and beautiful homes built by sea captains dotted the village. With the end of the age of sail and the coming of the railroad, the focus gradually changed until more people came to ‘see the sea’ than to work on it.”

Wychmere Harbor

If you’re on Cape Cod, you’ve got to make sure to take in the beauty of Wychmere Harbor. Wychmere enjoys a long and storied 117-year history on Cape Cod. From 1892 to 1993, the property housed the historic Snow Inn. The newer building, now the Harbor House, was previously home to the legendary Thompson Clam Bar for decades. 

In 2010, new owners purchased and renovated the entire property to its current splendor, while retaining the elegance and class of this grand dame. Wychmere Beach Club’s multi-use compound spans nearly 20 pristine acres along Wychmere Harbor Channel and Nantucket Sound.
