Cape Cod is one of the most popular wedding destinations in America. If you are planning your special day here, you'll need to find a proper venue, find a place for flowers, catering, and much more, including accommodations for your family and friends. We are happy to welcome you and your guests at Handkerchief Shoals!


Our property is a premium location for several destination wedding venues, and demand for accommodations prevents us from offering wedding blocks.  For the best available rate, guests may reserve on a first come first served basis directly on our website.  We suggest when planning your wedding to keep in mind that there is at least a two-night minimum stay during our peak season from mid-May through mid-September. Also keep in mind our office is open for check in after 3PM and if your wedding begins before our check-in time, guests will need to plan their stay to arrive the day before the event. 


If you are a guest you can reserve directly on our website for best available rates.  There is no special wedding code needed to reserve, but to assist the Bride & Groom in their planning, feel free to let us know (via message with your reservation) the wedding you will be attending. 

Our office is open for check in as of 3PM.  Sorry, no exceptions. 

We require a one third deposit for reservations of two or more nights, and a deposit of the total amount due for any single night stay.  We are aware that a guest's plans may change. In case of cancellation up to 15 days prior to arrival, the deposit will be refunded, less the anytime $35 cancellation fee. (Cancellation within 2 weeks of arrival will result in forfeit of deposit; No shows or cancellations on day of arrival will be charged the full amount due).

For wedding guests to have an enjoyable wedding event experience, please keep in mind our check-in time is 3 PM or later. Late arrival after hours can be pre-arranged. However, we are unable to accommodate earlier check-in time requests without compromising housekeeping procedure and cleaning protocol. Be safe in your travel. We look forward to seeing you on property.

If you need assistance please don't hesitate to call us at 508-432-2200
