The BeachThe chance to enjoy this quarter mile of sunny private beachfront on a calm Cape Cod cove has drawn guests to CBI for a hundred years. Horseshoe stakes and cornhole boards inject some active competition to the lazy afternoons—and that playfulness extends to a bocce court and croquet lawn between the beach and the pool. Canvas cabanas set on wood platforms provide shade and privacy to couples and families. The Beach House, decorated with historic photos and framed early 20th-century woolen bathing suits, offers everything from burgers, fish tacos and smoothies out on the deck to a full menu of ocean-centric entrées served all day. In the evenings, guests linger, gathering in low Adirondack chairs circled around crackling fires to trade epic stories about the day’s activities.
