Best Affordable Beach Resorts

Cape Cod is a land of vintage cottage communities, collections of tiny bungalows rented by the same families year in and year out. In Wellfleet, a lovely enclave known for its briny namesake oysters and tidy town center, the Surfside Cottages make travelers feel like residents. Sprinkled throughout the dunes and neighboring woods, the one- to three-bedroom accommodations aren’t much to look at—straight out of the 1950’s, they have knotty pine walls, bamboo furniture, outdoor showers, and screened-in porches—but the price can’t be beat, with rock-bottom weekly rates, even in summer.
