Favorite Things


What makes the North Truro area a unique vacation destination?

Being located on the Cape Cod National Seashore line, we have some of the most beautiful views than any other places I have visited in the New England area! People literally pull over on the side of the road to watch our sunsets throughout the year!

There are a lot of great hiking spots in the area that are fun to take the whole family on. The beach is obviously our #1 tourist attraction here on the Outer Cape, but we have so much more to offer!

What is your favorite area restaurant?

I was a hospitality major, so I LOVE good food. We have some of the beach restaurants within a short distance!

Strangers and Saints is close to the top of my list. It is a small plates type of eatery with a good price point! The ambiance is really great and the service style allows you to really relax with good friends.

My favorite seafood place would have to be Mac’s Fish House. I go there every year for my birthday, and always have a great meal! I have a long list of favorites, so please do not hesitate to ask for a great recommendation!

If you could only choose one local attraction that is a must-see, what would it be?

The gigantic sand dunes all over the outer cape! I go hike different spots throughout the summer with my dog Kruger. My goal is to view every dune shack that exists out here! As a side note, you are only able to view them from the outside, you are not able to enter them.

Are you a pet lover?

Yes! Of course! I have a 5-year-old Bull Terrier named Kruger. He was a rescue from Texas, and I have a huge love of the Bull Terrier breed!

What are your top 5 favorite things to do in Cape Cod?

  1. Beach
  2. Eating and Drink!
  3. Hiking to our lighthouses
  4. Exploring the Sand Dunes
  5. Attending Theme Weeks in Provincetown!


What is your background in the hospitality industry?
I went to school for hospitality and started my career as a part-time overnight auditor for a small hotel located just outside of Portland, Maine. From there I worked my way up in the management realm.

In 2019 I fell in love with the Cape and decided to relocate from the Boston area! I have worked for various franchised hotels throughout my career including Hilton Hotels & Resorts as well as properties from the Choice Hotels franchise. My most recent property was Ocean Edge’s Resort & Golf Club located in Brewster, MA.

Sandbars is Special

What’s your favorite room at Sandbars Inn and why?
We are in the process of finalizing a One Bedroom Suite that will be Room #16. It has a private sleeping area as well as a separate bathroom! It also features a fully equipped kitchen and a very spacious common area for guests to socialize in. I like it for the fact that it has a nice amount of space and provides a nice level of coziness.

What makes Sandbars Inn different from nearby hotels?

We really take pride in the appearance and feel of our property! Having the beach right outside your door is truly the best feature of our entire hotel! Every night in the summer I always sleep with my window open to hear the waves crashing against the sand. It is one of the most refreshing sounds to wake up to every morning!
