Stay in the Cape every Labor Day......Not a bad thing to say about the Schoals!! Great layout, Joe & his wife are more than happy to meet your needs. A must stay for the never satisfied traveler.........can't say enough good things about this place.

I stayed here with my husband for my best friend's wedding weekend. It was nice that we had the flexibility to stay two nights instead of three (like most of the other places that were recommended). It was priced right so that the younger under 30 crowd could really go and make a weekend out of it. The rooms were well kept and the grounds were clean. The owners and staff were very friendly and eager to answer questions, help me back into my locked room, give directions, and leave the light on for us when we arrived late.

Wished we could have stayed longer, but had to beat out Hurricane Irene. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Handkerchief Shoals Motel. We're very familiar with the Cape, but never stayed in the town of Harwich, which is a picturesque area with lots of beautiful small inlets, marinas,beaches and ponds, with fun family stuff to do (mini go cart track, great beaches and restaurants, etc.).

Handkerchief is owned/managed by a lovely couple. The motel is on Route 28, making it easily accessible to towns and beaches. Motel grounds were very clean and well-attended with a nice pool and barbecue area for guests. We stayed in the pet-friendly room, which was super clean. The bathroom had been recently renovated, too. Room had a small refrigerator and coffee service, both nice perks to have. They also served a continental breakfast daily.

Would definitely recommend and stay there again!

Room Tip: I doubt our experience was the exception to the rule. I'm sure all rooms are clean and efficien...
