About Mashpee, Cape Cod


Located in Cape Cod, the Town of Mashpee is the fastest growing municipality in the Commonwealth, and felt by its new and old residents to be one of the most gifted with natural beauty. Along with the Martha's Vineyard Town of Gay Head, it is also unique as one of the remaining homes of the Wampanoag Nation, the Native American tribe which met the Pilgrims at Plymouth.

With more than 5 miles of sandy beaches on Nantucket and Vineyard Sounds, extensive waterfrontage on Waquoit and Poppanesset Bays, four of the largest freshwater ponds on Cape Cod, the three championship golf courses of New Seabury and Willowbend and numerous other visitor amenities such as the nationally recognized Mashpee Commons Project, Mashpee is a prime resort, seasonal home and retirement community offering both a relaxed pace of life and a complete range of services.
