Group Amenities & Area Activities
The Dan’l Webster Inn & Spa is the perfect location for taking advantage of all that the Cape & Islands have to offer! Sandwich is known as the oldest town on Cape Cod and our historic inn has offered Cape Cod lodging for over 300 years. Today’s visitors of our boutique Inn are treated to the romance of the past with today’s conveniences.
Frequently requested activities such as spa treatments, golf and whale watching are within easy reach! The Beach Plum Spa, part of the Catania Hospitality Group, is located right in the inn. It is one of the largest spa facilities on Cape Cod, featuring an extensive menu of services that can be customized for your group. Cape Cod is often called the “Golf Coast” with its more than 40 public and private courses, from par-three to championship designs. The two nearest golf courses are the town operated Sandwich Hollows Golf Course and the Holly Ridge Golf Club, both courses are only a few minutes away. Cape Cod is rated one of the top ten spots in the world for whale watching. Your group can board the Hyannis Whale Watcher in Barnstable Harbor, which is only a short drive away.
Sandwich is a town rich in history and full of New England character! A short walk from the Inn is the historic Dexter Grist Mill, a working 17th century grist mill, featuring a 54-inch French Burl millstone. Across the steet is the Sandwich Glass Museum, another historic piece of American history where you can “watch molten glass, drawn from the furnace, blown and pressed into exquisite shapes”. Your group can also visit Heritage Museum & Gardens, the Benjamin Nye Homestead, or the Hoxie House.
If your group prefers the quiet solitude of walking along a Cape Cod beach, Town Neck Beach and the Sandwich Boardwalk crosses Mill Creek and beautiful marshes, leading to a lovely public beach on Cape Cod Bay. Stretching over 1000 feet in length, the wooden walkway remains one of Sandwich’s unique treasures, offering scenic views from the Cape Cod Canal to Scorton Creek.
Nearby are arts, culture, museums, artist colonies, shopping, lighthouses, hiking, biking on the canal and walking trails. Our concierge can help you with arrangements for these and other activities. We love sharing Cape Cod and historic Sandwich with all of our guests!
