Favorite Things

What makes the North Truro area a unique vacation destination?
Located within Cape Cod National Seashore, North Truro is a quaint and rural town on Cape Cod. Like all U.S. National Parks, the area boasts beautiful scenery, abundant bird and wildlife and coastal shores that are treasures. Sandbars Inn offers peace and quiet, as well as easy access to all the fun and action in Provincetown and Wellfleet.

What is your favorite area restaurant?
There are so many fabulous seafood restaurant options nearby. The Bookstore in Wellfleet is my favorite. They serve the best Mussels! Fresh, locally sourced, cutting-edge cuisine in a comfy setting. Every spring, we celebrate our re-opening of the hotel by indulging in their fried Wellfleet oysters.

If you could only choose one local attraction that is a must-see, what would it be?
The Provincetown Monument is a great tourist attraction with tons of history.   You can’t beat walking from our hotel’s private beach out to the magnificent sandbars at low tide for a perfect Sunset sighting. For a truly memorable experience on Cape Cod, a whale-watching excursion tops the list.

Pet Lover? How many Pets?   

Definitely, we have a french bulldog named Denali. We named him after my husband’s truck.

What is your background in the hospitality industry?
I started my hospitality career as a sales coordinator at the Ramada Inn. I have 25 years of experience in the hospitality industry, with local knowledge of the Cape Cod community. I have managed hotels and resorts throughout Massachusetts during my career, including Harbor Hotel, Courtyard by Marriott, Holiday Inn and Express Suites.

Sandbars is Special

What’s your favorite room at Sandbars Inn and why?
I love them all! The Queen Deluxe (Room 15) is my favorite. It’s a larger studio suite with an extra seating area and sliding glass doors to a beachfront balcony overlooking the water. Best of all, it’s an end unit with corner windows and unobstructed views of Provincetown lights and the tip of Cape Cod.

What makes Sandbars Inn different from nearby hotels?
Our smaller size provides a quieter, more intimate environment. It’s easy to relax and unwind here by the water. One recent guest compared the experience to staying at “a friend’s beach house.” We’re dedicated to providing our guests with unique, memorable experiences. Most importantly, we really want all of our guests to feel home at Sandbars Inn on Cape Cod Bay.
