Cape Cod Lodging

Falmouth Lodging

Falmouth is a large town geographically, and probably has one of the longest coastlines in the State. Consequently, there is a lot of land development with high value, high demand, and the choice views that create real property wealth. At the same time, Falmouth has a lot of agencies that are very attentive to the environmental demands of that coastline, whether it be the Planning Board, the Zoning Board of Appeals, the Conservation Commission, the Department of Natural Resources, Shellfish Warden, Harbormaster and the Board of Selectmen. Home to the famous Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute, Woods Hole Science Aquarium, Nobska Lighthouse, Shining Sea Bikeway, Highfield Hall and Gardens.  Large geographical tracts of land have been set aside for public conservation, not necessarily exclusively waterfront, but some of the woodland and back land areas that are the natural habitat for wildlife and are locations that also serve to enhance the attractiveness of the community.
