Description

Description

Well-maintained, comfortable cottage located on a nicely landscaped property, with an extensive view of a salt marsh and Pleasant Bay. On the first floor, there is a well-equipped kitchen, a dining area with a large window that looks out on the bay, a living room, a full bathroom, and a bedroom with a queen-sized bed. Upstairs there are two bedrooms, each containing two twin beds. A deck off the living room faces the salt marsh and bay. From the cottage, the bay is a short walk away using a private walking path, which is edged with native plants and filled with the chatter of birds (no motorized vehicles are permitted). A boardwalk crosses over the marsh, leading you to the gentle water of the bay. There you can swim, hunt for hermit crabs and minnows, read a book, go kayaking, or simply basque in the beauty of your surroundings. The cottage is just a short drive from Nauset and Skaket beaches and downtown Orleans, but is well away from the hustle-bustle of these areas. There is a 6-person and 2-car maximum. Linens and towels are not provided. The cottage has WiFi. A boat mooring at the bay is available for a small fee.

Fabulous vacation cottage

I stayed here with friends - 3 adults and two small children. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time and definitely plan to return. Michelle was wonderful to work with, very accommodating and welcoming.

Pros - WONDERFUL view from the deck, restful, very quiet and peaceful location. Our kids were probably the loudest thing within miles. Very comfortable beds, nice open floor plan living room/dining room. Spacious deck with good deck furniture. Really nice landcaping all around. />
Cons - not much. Its more of a cottage than a house - no washer/dryer or dishwasher, limited space in kitchen for cooking (though nicely set up with plenty of dishes and pots/pans etc). But who cares? We didn't come there to cook.

All in all it had everything we needed and was just a perfect place to stay. One of the best vacations I have taken.

A Special Place

My husband and I found Michelle and Philip's house rental several years ago, and it has become our regular place to stay on Cape Cod. The house is very comfortable and fully equipped.

The views of the adjacent salt marshes and Pleasant Bay are breathtaking. We enjoy a wonderful relaxing or sometimes busy daily routine in this quiet place. We wander the marsh bird watching, stroll the interesting gardens on the property, fish, put our kayaks in the bay, swim at their beach and enjoy it all. A short distance away is Orleans with shopping, entertainment and excellent restaurants. Chatham and Wellfleet and known for their beaches, and the National Seashore, art galleries and shopping are also close by. This location has it all.

Thank you, Michelle and Philip, for being so welcoming and helpful each time we visit. We appreciate how equipped and clean your house is and all the thoughtful touches that make it a home.

Cute house, lovely hosts

This cottage was an excellent home base for our week on the Cape this August. It would be perfect for a small family or group of friends looking for a no frills rental in a convenient location. The cottage is in a quiet neighborhood on Pleasant Bay and is only a short drive to downtown Orleans for groceries and other supplies. It is very close to Nauset Beach and not far from the Cape Cod National Seashore beaches further north. We loved the views of the marsh from the dining table and patio and especially enjoyed the beautiful landscaping all around the property. The house does not have wifi and my cell signal was quite weak, so prepare to be "off the grid." This was my first time renting a house on the Cape, and working with Michelle and Phillip was a breeze. They provided ample information up front and were extremely flexible about our arrival time. I strongly recommend renting from them. show more show less

Happy memories are made here!

If I could enter more than five stars, I would. I am writing as a repeat renter, whose family could no longer imagine a year without a few relaxing weeks spent in this charming cottage. We are four adults and two children, or sometimes just two retirees. Watching the sun rise on Little Pleasant Bay from the dining room table or the deck as I sip my coffee is a daily highlight for me. My grandkids would without a doubt say they most love the many bird feeders and the endless treasures they find each year in the shallow salt marsh. My husband loves being able to easily launch his kayak from the nearby beach, too. This cozy cottage is tastefully decorated and the bedrooms are spacious. It is always spotless. I love to cook, so I find the well equipped kitchen a joy. Although the cottage is a quick drive to restaurants, Nauset Beach and shopping, the atmosphere is peaceful and quiet. and the landscaping is lovely. Philip and Michelle have been renting for years and definitely know how to do it right. show more show less
