Beach / Firepit
Cape Cod’s Natural Beauty
Bayside Beach is a sandy area that sits overlooking a picturesque Cape Cod salt marsh of Lewis Bay. It features a patio with umbrella tables, lounge chairs on the beach, and adirondack chairs around our firepit.
Our beach campfire is lit each night at sunset during the summer, and by request off season. Roast marshmallows, teach the little ones how to make ‘Smores. Enjoy the warmth of the fire as the sun goes down with your favorite beverage from the pub.
