Summer House Natural Soaps of Cape Cod is an artisanal soapworks and outlet store in Hyannis, MA on Cape Cod. We make natural soaps and bodycare products inspired by the sea, sand, and skies of the Cape and Islands.

Learn about the art and science of soap at a soap making demonstration every Friday at 10:30 from Memorial Day through Columbus Day. The demo takes about 25 minutes and ends in time for the brewery tour at Cape Cod Beer next door.

They have a wonderful selection of soaps that you can either buy in bulk or wrapped. I stocked up on several different scents and have enjoyed using them. A must if you are in to using natural soaps or would like ideas on souvenirs to take to folks back home.

Like most Cape Codders, I have many family & friends who come to visit. A while ago, I took my friend & her son to take the Cape Cod Potato Chips Factory Tour & the Cape Cod Beer Factory Tour. We arrived early for the Beer Tour, & I noticed this cute little Natural Soap Shop, with a sign that... More

We have been buying this soap for several years since discovering it at the Orleans Farmers' Market. Most homemade soaps have a certain appeal, but this is so far beyond the norm it's almost indescribable! We kept buying at the market, but then ventured to the store in Barnstable. It's filled with all sorts of other intriguing products, scarves, scents,... More

Thank you, rirob! Dune Shack is a personal favorite of mine too. It reminds me of my week last August in Fowler dune shack on the National Sea Shore. Woody, smoky, delicious! More

There was a lot of offerings that I hadn't seen online and I was happy to be able to stop in and see the place where 100% of my soap comes from - they ship it to me. I know they have soap making demos in the summer but we missed that, coming later in the Fall.

Small and tucked away right next door to the Cape Cod Beer facility, Summer House is absolutely worth your time. I adore artisan soaps and these are great quality. Very true to life scents that manage to stay on the skin without being over powering are a pleasure to bathe with. Very sensitive skin friendly. The lilac and daffodil scents... More

We discovered this soap maker a few years ago during a visit to the Cape Cod brewing outlet next door. We have a dislike for harsh, commercial soaps, and once we tried the Summer House soaps, we were hooked. The bars, and there are many different ones to choose from, last a long time in the shower. If you want... More
