Description

Description

For the discriminating seasonal visitor, we offer our ''expanded'' Cape style home in the historically zoned Rte. 6A section of Yarmouth Port. It is situated on a dead end gravel lane with only 3 other homes. Furnished with mostly country antiques, this property offers a quiet retreat setting, but it is within easy walking distance to 3 restaurants and Dennis Pond (beach area with lifeguard on duty).

First floor includes master bedroom, master bath, great room (relaxing area with fireplace) and working kitchen with picture windows and skylight; dining room; parlor and den. Each upstairs bedroom includes a private sitting area.

The summer ''caretaker'' of this property lives in an apartment over the garage which is separate from the house. Our home has been a ''home away from home'' to many happy repeat summer renters since 2003...we hope you will be pleased enough to plan your annual vacation on Minden Lane.

Summer 2016

We stayed in this lovely home in Yarmouthport for 2 weeks in July 2016. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay...the master bedroom with bath is on the first floor and two bedrooms with full bath upstairs was ideal. We had family members visit for the long 4th of July weekend, and this setup allowed for plenty of privacy for our guests and us.

The grounds are beautiful. We enjoyed our morning coffee on the patio each morning. We also walked to several local eateries...Jack's Outback for breakfast; Optimist Cafe is a short walk; a quaint bakery a short walk (great freshly made bread and other breakfast pastries) - and one of our favorite restaurants Old Yarmouth Inn for dinner was a 5 minute walk. For individuals who want to experience the quintessential Cape Cod vacation, this home and area is perfect!! show more show less

We enjoyed our stay at this home with extended family. The layout of the home was ideal for a family and grandparents. The location was great, from the town at your finger tips to Dennis Pond not far away, also centrally located for the activities we did. The homeowners were welcoming and pleasant to work with and always responded to questions in a timely manner.

A True Cape Cod Gem!

We and our Golden Retriever, Bear, enjoyed the most delightful stay at this charming, well appointed home. We're former New Englanders and have a long standing love affair with Cape Cod so we were especially thrilled to find this home to rent in our absolute favorite part of the Cape.

Not a cottage...a true home with vintage pieces scattered about that speak eloquently of Cape Cod's historic past. I've never felt so at home in a rental! Every day we all adored the screened farmer's porch for morning coffee, cocktail hour on the fenced brick patio, the yard's delicious feeling of privacy yet were only a moment to historic, peaceful 6A. and all that it offers. Stroll thru the woods to Jack's Outback for yummy breakfast. A short walk takes you to Old Yarmouth Inn for THAT Sunday brunch. A peaceful beach is nearby. Neat and clean there were no surprises here...just evidence of exceptionally thoughtful hosts who make sure you want for nothing. Absolutely THE BEST vacation in a home that exudes an intimate charm and timeless sense of the past....pure relaxation coupled with a feeling of stepping back in time yet with modern conveniences to enhance your comfort.

We were joined by Norwegian cousins on their first visit to the USA. Between the comforts of the house, the privacy and the many delights of Cape Cod they simply fell in love and are planning a return trip as soon as they can.

I could go on and on about all the wonderful things we loved about this property but I'll just say go and see for yourself. You won't be disappointed! And thank you, Don and Noel, for EVERYTHING!

Great Home.............Great Experience

This beautiful home is situated in the heart of Cape Cod. The home is well kept and the host family goes out of their way to ensure that summer guests have a wonderful time. The home is equipped with everything necessary to feel right at home. It is situated in a beautiful setting and is a walk away from fine restaurants, fresh water swimming and scenic tours. We recommend this home without reservation.

This home was very clean, very comfortable and furnished with care. The location is perfect for the Cape. We enjoyed the beaches as well as Dennis Pond which was right around the bend on the street behind the house. Antique shopping was great, the food is to die for, and short trips to Boston kept us busy. We had plenty of room for guests, did lots of fishing, walking, and hiking the nature trail which is close by.

The owners were wonderful and very accommodating. Whenever we needed help with something, they had good ideas for us. This is an ideal rental house and we would highly recommend it. show more show less

"we are an older couple who have been renting this property for sevedral years along with our daughter and her family, including our small dogs. The home is very secluded on a beautiful little road off of rte. 6A. The grandkids love the public pond which is less than 5 minutes away. the kitchen and dining room are very spacious and more than comfortable. The kitchen is so comfortable that my husband could spend an entire day there watching his favorite TV shows while munching and/or cooking and playing cribbage with one of the kids. The beds are more comfortable than any other place we've ever rented and the bathrooms/showers are more than adequate and very clean. One of the nice things is that my daughter and her family take over the second floor and have their own private space away from us grandparents! It's not a cottage...it's a spacious wonderful home and, God willing, we hope to return every year as long as the Grays will have us. They are always very eager to please their guests in any way they can." show more show less

7 Summers in This Great House! After spending a month each summer for the past seven years at this charming, warm, wonderful house, I can't recommend it highly enough. It has absolutely everything you could possibly want in a home away from home: just off old Rte. 6A in the most historic, tranquil part of the island...close to everything you could possibly want (i.e. beaches, the "pond" (really a lake) literally 5 minutes away either walking or by car, shops, restaurants, movies, Hyannis and the ferries and south beaches only 15 minutes away) The house is immaculate, kitchen fabulous (really a "Great Room" with fireplace and kitchen together), 3 big lovely bedrooms, 3 big comfy bathrooms, study, living room, dining room, outside grill and patio for outdoor picnics, a wonderful farmer's porch for morning coffee, and on and on. And incredibly well priced compared to other houses in the area. As great as this house is, and it is, the owners are even more special...thoughtful, accommodating, generous in every possible way possible. Don and Noel are two of the nicest people I have ever known. They go out of their way to make you as comfortable, relaxed and carefree as possible. You simply can't go wrong here! You'll love being in this house as much as I have been, I promise! show more show less

We are Don and Noel Gray, owners of this property since 1992. In 2003 we retired from management of the Sandwich Auction House (a Cape Cod company specializing in antique and decorative arts auctions) and bought a cottage in Nova Scotia for summer use. We celebrated our 50th wedding anniversary there this past summer with all three of our sons and their families in attendance. In the winter, we keep the woodstove burning and the snow shoveled at the Minden Lane home we rent out in the summer. From all the feedback we receive, we know the summer renters are appreciative of being in our home and we try to attend quickly to any problems/concerns they may have during their stay. Our youngest son Dan works in Hyannis and can be our ''hands and feet'' while we are in Canada. For us, renting our home has been a great experience...connecting us to special folks many of whom have rented year after year.

What is special about this property?
What we love most about our home is the serenity it provides. Set in the quaint, historic village of Yarmouth Port, the home gives its residents a quiet place to be but is in an easy walk to swimming spots, 4 restaurants (an award winning Japanese called Inaho, an 0ld New England inn, and wonderful breakfast places: Jack's Outback and a The Optimist Café), bakery, interesting little shops and is an easy drive to the main highway (rte. 6) which leads to all parts of the Cape. 21 Minden Lane itself was built in the 1930's but bought by a contractor in the 1970's who updated it and added a kitchen. He used old floorboards, vintage doors, etc. to enhance the ''feel'' of an antique home. With Don in the antiques business for many years, our home is filled with many country/folk art antiques...which add to the ''ambiance''.

What is special about your town?
Yarmouth provides a ''Jekell and Hyde'' experience with different offerings. Our home is in Yarmouth Port which is on the north side of the town, with quaint old New England homes and charm. All construction/improvements are strictly controlled by the ''Olde Kings' Highway Commission''. Therefore, there are no box stores, fast food restaurants, high rise buildings, etc. On the south side of town (a short drive away) along rte. 28, folks can find the commercial offerings (i.e. miniature golf, fast food, inflatable park, stores galore, pirate museum, motels, many restaurants, etc.
