We strive to maintain comfortable accommodations with great value for your memorable Cape Cod vacation. Ideally located between Harwich Port and Chatham in South Harwich, Handkerchief Shoals Inn is the perfect place from which to explore the Cape & Islands: we’re close to fabulous dining and shopping, while just a short walk to beautiful Red River Beach on Nantucket Sound (.5 mi), and a 1-minute drive (.7 miles) from the Freedom Cruise Line with daily passenger ferry service to and from historic Nantucket.

In light of recent public health concerns about Coronavirus (COVID-19), we would like you to know that at Handkerchief Shoals Inn, guest health, safety and comfort is our first priority, as reflected in our protocol for exceptional cleanliness of our rooms.We take great pride in our clean and well-run business supported by outstanding customer service in a hospitality setting designed for your enjoyment of individual space, comfort and privacy.
To respect your space and enable social distancing, we offer a new streamlined procedure that facilitates your check-in without the need to visit our office, as well as ample parking that allows you direct access to your own private room with private bath. For your convenience, all of our rooms have a mini refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker, and our handy Comfort Zone is stocked with a variety of  snacks and beverages, any of which can be delivered to your doorstep (a list of available items is provided in your room).
Along with social distancing, maintaining a clean environment is one of the most important preventive measures against transmission: frequently touched surfaces (such as tables, chairs and lamps, doorknobs, lightswitches and switchplates, headboards, TVs and remotes, sinks, toilets, floors, faucets and countertops) are cleaned and sanitized between reservations with products designed for this purpose. These may include antibacterial cleaning solutions, sprays or wipes, based on CDC guidance and  manufacturers’ suggested uses for those products. Linens and towels are laundered appropriately. (On request, during your stay, we reclean surfaces, remove and replace used towels, empty refuse containers, and replenish  amenities). Our seasonal swimming pool is serviced, treated and inspected by certified professionals. We are supplied, staffed and trained for deep cleaning, and our checks are rigorous. In turn, we request that guests collaborate in this mutual effort by respecting the check-in and check-out times so that these procedures are not rushed.  
Rest assured that at the heart of our family-owned business is a sense of responsibility for our community and country, and a commitment to the well being of our visitors and staff, and to your healthful and safe enjoyment of the National Seashore.
We look forward to welcoming you and your families this season to Handkerchief Shoals on beautiful Cape Cod, with all the leisure and recreational opportunities of  its villages and beaches, where the fresh salt air and forest paths of the National Seashore await you.
