A Historic Choice in Cape Cod Hotels

How It All Began

When seeking a historic choice in Cape Cod hotels, we know you expect an experience rooted in a tradition of excellent service and hospitality, but also the convenience of modern amenities and upgraded comforts. At Sea Crest Beach Hotel, having recently undergone major renovations, we are pleased to provide guests at our Falmouth inn with the casual elegance and world-class comfort for which our name is synonymous.

Our story begins in the 1930s, when an elegant summer playhouse rose on the shore to host aspiring actors such as Henry Fonda, Jimmy Stewart and Margaret Sullivan. A fire in 1936 and a hurricane just two years later destroyed that, and every other structure on the beach. Yet locals and visitors did not give up. Lou Walters opened the Latin Quarter in 1942 as a hotel and dinner theater, paying homage to the original summer stage. Lou's daughter and celebrity interviewer Barbara Walters grew up here, immersed in the festive atmosphere of what became the Cape's most popular gathering place. By 1971, the venue had been converted into a year-round family resort.

After the new millennium, a new era began for Sea Crest as well. Scout Real Estate Capital, LLC purchased the property in February of 2010 and poured more than 50 years of luxury hotel management experience into refining every detail. Today, they continue to welcome visitors and conference attendees from around the world with the beauty, hospitality and magic of Cape Cod.
