... Places always look nicer on glorious mornings, and that was certainly the case here. We enjoyed a coffee and a look round the shops, and a weird combination of a pumpkin field in a church grounds. Halloween meets Christianity? Only in America.
We ate our stolen bagels (and also some muffins, didn't mention them first time as the breakfast lady would have hunted us down) and then conferred as to whether Nicole would need another toilet ...
... Primary (like my school back home). It was COLD in Chatham - very cold. but we still looked around the streets and visited the park which had a great display for Halloween. From here we drove to Provincetown at the end of the Cape.
Saturday we went over on the big ferry to Martha's Vineyard (an island off Cape Cod). It was so windy and cold, but we had a good time.
We arrive here under the threat of rain, but this morning we wake to sunny skies. Lots to see and do here , two shorelines, numerous lighthouses, museums galore and many a bakery to discover, oh, and a few beaches too. Based in Nickerson State Park, we headed up the sandy arm of the Cape, going through one picturesque little town after another. Everything and place is ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Eagle Wing Guest Motel Eastham
This small property in the heart of the "mid-Cape" is just right. The room was clean clean clean and very comfortable. Not particularly luxurious but done with taste and simple comforts. There is even a little gem of a swimming pool where I really enjoyed cooling off in the middle of the day. Mary and Gerry, the kindly inn-keepers, are very nice, interesting and accomplished people and the feeling at the motel is classy but not snooty. Most importantly it's quiet, comfortble and clean. I plan to come back as often as I can!
Great little place on the Cape
We really enjoyed our stay at the Eagle Wing Guest Motel. Our room was large, very clean, beautifully furnished, comfortable and quiet. Hosts Mary and Gerry are very accommodating and helpful. The central location enabled us to tour the entire Cape. We especially liked the back deck off our room for breakfast and sitting in the evening. Nice way to start and end a busy day on the Cape. We are already planning a return stay!
Sparkling clean and shipshape
My husband and I have vacationed on Cape Cod several times, and the Eagle Wing Guest Motel in Eastham provided the most pleasant experience and best value we've found. Everything -- including the swimming pool -- was sparkling clean and in shipshape repair, the decor was simple and tasteful and included thoughtful details. We also appreciated the management's environmentally conscious principles. The continental breakfast featured high-quality coffee, tea, and juice, and freshly baked muffins, not the warmed-over frozen variety some places serve. Being located right near the National Seashore and several of the Cape's best beaches, and just a few minutes from Orleans, is a plus. The hosts are knowledgeable and helpful, too.
GREAT PLACE TO STAY!
This was our first stay in Eastham. We are thrilled we chose the right hotel for our needs. It is an adult - non smoking environment which means the pillows did not smell of smoke like in other non smoking rooms. You can tell how much thought, love and care went into the renovation of this place. It is extremely clean and Mary and Gerry couldn't be more helpful. I just recommended the Eagle Wing to my brother and sister in law for t his weekend. Definitely going back!
It was Okay, but won't stay here again
The staff made me feel as if I were inturrupting when I arrived to check-in. I didn't feel welcome at all. The room wasn't bad but smelt stale.
Our home away from home
My wife and I love the Eagle Wing. The pleasant surroundings, the spotless condition of the room, and the hospitality of hosts Gerry and Mary Orris make this motel our home away from home. This was our third consecutive year at the Eagle Wing and we continue to be impressed. We both look forward to going back next year.
My wife and I have stayed at Eagle Wing Guest Motel in previous years, but it was wonderful to return this year to our favorite site on the Cape. Mary and Gerry Orris are wonderful folks. There are many things we love about Eagle Wing, such as the personal and open friendliness of Gerry and Mary. We never have to worry about the rooms: always fresh, clean, comfortable. We often sit on the porch behind the motel bird watching; the variety is amazing. There is a wonderful balance between having our privacy and being able to enjoy the hospitality of our hosts. Eagle Wing is central to all our favorite spots: the Cape Cod bike trail is just across and down the road; hiking on beautiful trails; and, shopping close by. The new WiFi is terrific. We go away to get away from all the rush, but sometimes we need to "check in" and its good to know we have that kind of access. And, a real treat is being able to enjoy the beautiful artwork of our host Mary Orris in her watercolor paintings. Anyone who seeks quietness, slow pace, and real friendliness will enjoy Eagle Wing.
Loving attention to detail
Loving attention to detail is what sets the Eagle Wing apart from other Cape motels. Conveniently located near the National Seashore, the little touches make the rooms tasteful and home-like, and the stay a welcome respite from the crazy workaday. The motel owners are able to successfully combine this serene experience with environmentally "green" techniques (energy saving light bulbs, water conservation)...a motel with a social conscience!
We so appreciated the room-darkening capabilities of the window treatments, allowing for sleeping in! It's the place to go for a child-free, civilized get-away.
The Eagle Wing is the best
My wife and I have stayed at the Eagle Wing on three separate occasions. Mary and Gerry Orris
have a wonderful motel and beautiful grounds.
The rooms are immaculate as are all of the linens and towels. The pool, continental breakfast, couples only and no smoking policy makes this a facility we return to time and again. It is quiet and the Orrises are personable and welcoming hosts.
Very clean and friendly
Mary and Gerris Orris made us feel right at home at their lovely motel. They offered places to visit and places to eat. They greeted us each morning, by name, with coffee and muffins. The morning newspaper at our doorstep was also appreciated. We will be going back for another visit.
