The Idlewild (map)

Once a 19th century hotel built in 1876, it was the hub of the earliest ocean-side community perched atop the breathtaking bluffs at Manomet. The private beach, one of Massachusetts best kept secrets, harkens back to a bye-gone era with its white sand, community bonfires, striper fishing in the summer and playful harbor seals and cormorants in the winter. The Idlewild has an eclectic history, with famous guests like Grover Cleveland and Nathaniel Hawthorne.

Overlooking the breathtaking Bluffs at Manomet, The Idlewild offers convenient access to the beach. Watch the sun rise over the Bay from one of the many porches or nestle in front of the cozy wood stove when the weather turns cool. With expansive views of Cape Cod Bay, ten beautifully decorated bedrooms, seven baths, a commercial-style kitchen, a large family room and parking for 12 cars, The Idlewild is the perfect retreat for larger groups looking for a unique seaside getaway.
