Description

Description

THIS PROPERTY IS A SUNDAY - SUNDAY RENTAL during the summer season (June 16, 2019 - Sept. 1, 2019). NO ON-CAPE BRIDGE TRAFFIC ON SUNDAYS. Just fly over the bridge and get on with your vacation.

Off-season minimum stay is two nights.

Please note that this house is in a very quiet, rural area in which sound travels extensively making this property not good for loud partying. Best for families and groups seeking space, quiet, and privacy.

Located in the rural village of Marstons Mills, the house consists of outbuildings from an 1880 dairy farm, connected over the years to form a fun and unique house on 1.5 acres. House consists of two wings, each with a queen master suite with full bath.

This is a great house for two families vacationing together due to the privacy the two wings allow. Two doors separate the wings, and kids think it's like a secret passageway. Children love their storybook-like room upstairs.

Escape the crowds and traffic and tourism of Cape Cod, but they're minutes away if you want them. An enjoyable five-minute walk, or one-minute drive, will bring you to remote, sandy-bottom Long Pond, where you may well have the beach all to yourselves; where your young children can play in the water safely and where older kids can hang out together safely. You might want to bring the grill to the lake and have an evening cookout with swimming. Go for a run on the wooded trails, and bring FIdo along for the run and a swim, and to maybe retrieve sticks or a ball from the lake.

Take in the smell of fresh-cut hay as you have your morning coffee before hitting the beach. Take some apples or carrots to the horses next door.

Town-owned conservation land extends from the property, with Long Pond at the other side of the pasture. There is also a paved road to the Long Pond association beach for hauling equipment (but the walk is fun!). Bring your kayaks and enjoy the serenity and beauty of any number of lakes and ponds in Marstons Mills. Launch yourself into the pond from one of the two rope swings out there. The Lake is for young children and is a wonderful alternative when it's too hot for the beach or when the tide is out.

Children's games and books are provided, as is reading for adults. Bed linens and towels are all 100% cotton for comfort. House has three queen beds, one full bed, two twins, a toddler inflatable bed, an iBed cot, a Graco Pack-n-Play, and a futon on the porch. The queen mattresses are pristine, and both the mattresses and their box springs are encased to preserve cleanliness and prevent bed bugs. The furniture in the house is very comfortable and was selected with comfort in mind.

There are two full baths and a 1/2 bath. Kitchen is fully outfitted. Dining room with seating for six; porch with very large table which seats ten comfortably; table with umbrella on deck which seats six comfortably; gas grill; charcoal grill; tree climbing; tetherball; croquet; bamboo for sword play; three fresh-water fishing poles to take over to the pond; tv can be moved to the porch; children's tv/dvd/game room is a great place for kids to crash and unwind after a hot day at the beach. There is a large walk-in outdoor hot/cold shower.

Nearby beaches: Sandy Neck (10 min.); Loop (10 min.); Craigville/Covell's (15 min.); Kalmus; South Cape; Scusset; crowdless ponds and lakes. Or hop on Rt. 6 at Exit 5, get off at Exit 8 or 9, and spend the day at the beautiful, soft white-sand Mayflower or Howes Beaches in Dennis on Cape Cod Bay. The National Seashore, with Coast Guard Beach - voted every year as one of the nation's best beaches - is 1/2 hour away.

Enjoy homemade ice cream from a number of nearby shops; Go for a hike at Sandy Neck; roast marshmallows at a campfire at Sandy Neck Beach at night. Beautiful W. Barnstable is right across the highway with its quaint shops. Mashpee Commons is right down the road. There are three cinemas nearby. There is room to park a boat on the property, which can be launched at Prince Cove in Marstons Mills. Owner provides a beach pass for all Barnstable beaches.

The location of the farm is central on Cape Cod and not hampered by traffic, so Rt. 6 is easy to hop onto to get anywhere on the Cape. Hop on the Island Queen or Hy-Line or the Steamship Authority and take a day trip to Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket. Historic Sandwich is nearby. Check out the Heritage Museum and the Sandwich Glass Museum. Take a fun train ride through the Cape, leaving from either Hyannis, or W. Barnstable right across the highway - choose the scenic ride, family-supper ride, or another of their train rides; whale watch out of Millway Marina or Provincetown; deep sea fishing; pirate adventure; kayaking tours....Owner provides a binder with plenty of info. and suggestions for activities, directions to beaches and grocery stores, etc.

No one is under foot as the house and grounds are spacious.
The Farm makes for a unique Cape Cod vacation for active families who want space and privacy at home and where children's imaginations can rule. Imagine a farm/beach/shopping/tons of activities vacation all in one. A little bit of everything.

Wonderful Vacation

Our family of four, our dog and three friends stayed at this lovely house for a week. The children (ages 11-13) loved the fact that they sort of had a wing of the home for themselves (plus Grandma :-) who stayed in the second master bedroom). The kids absolutely loved their room, which is just adorable, and comfortably slept 4 girls (could have accommodated two more). The lower field is beautiful, perfect for playing tag, frisbee, soccer, chasing the dog around (or the dog chasing us!) or just simply enjoying the view while having breakfast outdoors. Heaven! There is an outdoor shower with hot water- simply delightful!

The kitchen has everything you could possibly want. Plus it's super functional and gorgeous. We grilled outdoors a few times too. Did I mention Heaven!? The location is perfect in my opinion. Not so touristy, but close enough to everything, with fantastic Craigville Beach only a 15 minute drive and also close to Mashpee Commons with cute shops and restaurants (we recommend pizzas at Siena restaurant!).

The house is very charming, in an old world farm style way, but with all the modern amenities (though its internet is a bit spotty). This rental was exactly what we had been looking for on the Cape.

The owner, Ginna, is SO thoughtful and responsive. I think she may be the best owner...EVA! (and we have plenty of experience having rented quite a few vacation properties through the years). Ginna went out of her way to order a three tier cake pan as it was my daughter's birthday and my daughter and her friends wanted to bake a "special" birthday cake. Ginna's attention to detail is extraordinary. We loved every minute of our stay. Five glowing stars!

You go, L! Amazingly wonderful guests. I felt like I was turning my house over to my best friend in L. I'm so glad my home proved to be a good venue for L & S's daughter's birthday celebration, and I'm ecstatic that the posse of 11 year olds had a great time. This family was also very gracious about the Murphy's Law dominoes which decided to consume this summer. The Internet is actually fine, but L is right, the extender was not working properly, and I'm still trying to figure out why! I smiled broadly when L sent me a text with a photo of the three-tiered birthday cake, which the girls had decorated, and it looked like they had some fun doing it! Came down to mow, and was cheered by the birthday balloons flying from the deck chairs. So glad they felt at home and are happy with their choice. Thank you for the wonderful review, L.show moreshow less

Excellent pet-friendly vacation home!

In July 2018, my wife and I rented this property in Marstons Mills for a week with 8 additional people. We also brought our French bulldog. So we had 6 adults, two kids (10 and 8 years old). This property was the perfect fit for our family vacation! The house has the charm of an older home but it is very well maintained - clean, organized, and comfortable. The house has two "wings". One wing has the master bedroom, where my wife and I stayed, along with the kitchen, dining room, living room, and porch. And the other wing has two more bedrooms and another living room/family room, which was the perfect set up for the rest of my family.

Our favorite part of the house was the dining room, which is very large, and the adjoining screened-in porch, which also had ample seating for our group. This gave us the option to either eat and talk inside the air-conditioned dining room when it was hot outside or move out to the porch to catch a breeze. The property has a large backyard that is partially fenced, which was great for our dog, as it allowed him to roam freely and spend more time outdoors than he normally does. The nearby Long Pond, which is within walking distance, has very clean and calm water and provided a great environment for the kids (and our dog) to play in the water. All three of them loved it!

Finally, Ginna was very friendly and accommodating. She met us at the house when we arrived and took the time to show us every part of the house and property, making sure that any questions were answered and all of our needs were taken care of. Overall, this property was the perfect venue for our family vacation. We all enjoyed every relaxing moment of it, and next time we plan another family vacation at the Cape, we hope to stay here again!

Thank you so much for this wonderful, unsolicited review. This was a wonderful group whom I was delighted to meet and have in my home, and I am thrilled that they enjoyed the house as much as is indicated in the review. (Hopefully the fence will be finished next summer!). They deserve a lot of credit, in fact. as they knew this has been an oddly challenging summer, for various reasons, with my running around trying to put numerous fires out, and some being able to in some cases, for example, the broken lawnmower and being unable to secure anyone to mow my 1.5 acres. This family was incredibly patient, understanding, and accommodating, for which I am very grateful. The house was left in terrific shape, which every owner will tell you is like manna from Heaven! This thoroughly pleasant family is welcome in my home any time.show moreshow less

Spacious, clean, comfy, and convenient!

As a family of five, we enjoy being together on vacation but also require a little time to ourselves. Ginna's home provides the opportunity for both togetherness and privacy with three living areas and two large dining spaces indoors (including the three season porch!) and two master bedrooms located on opposite ends of the house. The third (upstairs) bedroom is also secluded enough to be undisturbed by household noise or late night movie watching. The outdoor deck is perfect for BBQ's/lounging and the large, flat yard is ideal for playing ball!

Ginna has the kitchen stocked with everything you need to feel at home when preparing meals. Lots of windows allow for a comfortable breeze throughout the house but there is also air conditioning should you need it.

A couple of things that really stood out as being exceptional over the average vacation home rental is that it is really clean (yeah!!) and that the beds and sheets are comfortable (hooray!). It's also just, well, homey and nice! The location is safely off the beaten path of the touristy hustle and bustle while at the same time close to restaurants, shops, beaches, and activities. Ginna is a very attentive hostess and quickly responds to any questions or concerns! Thanks, Ginna!

Great house in Barnstable

Totally loved our stay at the Barn! The host, Ginna, is very friendly and responsive to all questions and requests, providing ample information about both the house and activities in the area. The home is really lovely - well maintained and spacious enough for two families with kids to roam about. We loved sitting outside for coffee in the morning and grilling in the evening. Quick walk to the lake or about 10 minute drive to the beach. Highly recommend!

Great House, Flexible Host!

I stayed here with a large group and the house provided both enough space and some great areas to spend some time with many people. The backyard, deck, and porched in area is a fantastic combination. Ginna was very flexible with arrival and departure times so there was no stress about getting there or having to leave. She is also a real pro at hosting, with a convenient process and tons of information about the area. I would definitely consider returning in the future!

Wonderful week in an awesome house

My family stayed there after a wedding. Ginna is a very nice and a great host. She explained everything patiently. The house is very clean, specious and comfortable. The house has enough room for 8 people. It's convenient to go everywhere. We do love the yard and the porch, and ate dinner outside every day.

Everything is perfect! Thanks again, Ginna!

Amazing weekend for our low-key wedding!

What a find! A great space both indoors and out, the Farm was the perfect venue for our small wedding event. The huge field made for a beautiful ceremony under the trees, and then allowed for lawn games, eats and drinks. Adults and kids alike were able to enjoy the day, with room enough for everyone to pursue their own activities!

Ginna is a fantastic owner - honest, communicative and patient. We're so grateful to her for opening her home to us as we celebrated our wedding.

What a joy this was for me, to know my home was being used for such a happy event. J could not have been more pleasant to work with in getting everything arranged. He was so honest and went out of his way to make me feel assured about their wedding being held at my home. What a wonderful group of people, those I met. I left feeling very comfortable and secure in who was in my home. My neighbors raved about them as well, no loud noise, very low key, and indeed exactly what J had described would be the situation. Indeed, the house was left in spectacular order. I'm so happy the bride and groom were delighted in their chosen spot for their very special day. Thank YOU, J, for everything. Wishing you and J all the best in the years to come.show moreshow less

Great house for family

My husband and I rented this home for 2 weeks hoping that the layout and yard space would work for having 2 families in the house simultaneously. It worked wonderfully. The home is spacious and comfortable, with separate living spaces and 2 masters, one with an additional kids' room upstairs and laundry. The owner is very helpful and available for any questions, additional needs, etc.

If outside space is important with active kids or just to BBQ and hangout, the property is wonderful. Plus there's a beach pass for any Barnstable beach or pond. You can walk or drive to the little pond for local owners only. During the week you could have the whole place to yourselves. Was perfect for the elementary and preschool kiddos.

Overall a fabulous stay with easy access to local and longer distance activities. Will be back again.

This wonderful family capped what was a summer of top-notch guests this year. I'm so glad, K&J, that the house worked so well for your family and that you were comfortable and enjoyed it. Once again, I came home to a house in perfect order and great shape. I'm a lucky homeowner; I've had so many wonderful tenants, and K&J and their family are well within that category. How grateful, and lucky, I am to have had such responsible, respectful, kind, and fine guests.

Great vacation house!

This summer our family spent a week on "The Farm" (me, my husband, daughter and her husband, two grandchildren, ages 7 and 11, son and his cockapoo). We had a fantastic experience and plan to return again next summer. The house is spacious, clean, and welcoming, and the sleeping arrangements worked well for us. The two bedrooms with attached baths allowed the 2 adult couples privacy. The children loved the upstairs bedroom. The living room with the 1/2 bath allowed my son and dog privacy as well. The enclosed porch with sliding glass doors was our evening hangout, and the deck was large enough for morning coffee and afternoon lunch. The porch overlooks a huge backyard that was perfect for the kids, and especially the dog. The tether ball and the outdoor shower were other nice touches.

The neighborhood is quiet, and we enjoyed some long morning walks. One of the best things about this property for us is that it comes with access to a private beach on a large pond. We were there almost every day, as it was the perfect, safe place for us to hang out and swim.

The homeowner is extremely helpful and went to great lengths to make a book that explained everything about the house and things to do in the surrounding towns. We are all looking forward to our return next summer.

What wonderful, 5-star guests this group was. They are welcome back any time, and I am thrilled that they will be returning. Very friendly people, very cute dog, and the house was left immaculate, which is always appreciated!

Thank you, S&A, for the wonderful review and taking the time to write it.

Nutty about the Farm
Bellingham, MA
Looking for an amazing escape rich with what's REALLY important for vacationing?
Then you need to check out "the Farm." All 9 of us had plenty of room to relax and enjoy all the comforts of a true New England Cape Cod experience! The owner is over the top with making sure you enjoy your stay! The binder of information she put together for you covers everything from where to eat, play and have the most fun for all types of people. Our families were quite fond of the tether ball and croquet matches we had. If you are looking for good old fashion quality family space to vacation you can't beat the Farm. Plenty of room for eating together as a crowd and sleeping arrangements were perfect for 4 adults and 5 teenagers! We went to both the pond which is very nearby and hit a bunch of beaches that were only a short car ride away.

I am a homebody, and as such, it is important to me that my home be comfortable and a respite. I hope to provide the same for my guests. I respect and take seriously the fact that people will be spending a precious vacation week in my home, and I want it to be safe, clean, and comfortable. If I've been away for a day or longer, I love walking into the house. It is a sanctuary, private, quiet, surrounded by nature, from the property itself to the Town-protected pasture to the wood trails down to the lake. I like and hope to build a good rapport with my guests.

What is special about this property?
The house is very charming and is full of character. The grounds are beautiful, with a variety of beautiful trees, a lot of green, it is spacious and quite private. I love having the lake available for swimming, and the walk to the lake reminds me of overnight camp from my childhood, walking down a wooded trail with the smell of pines in the air. It is very quiet at night. While this is not a property for those who wish to step out onto the sand of a beach, it might be a good choice for those looking for an exploratory, whole-Cape vacation. It is centrally located, and so all of Cape Cod is easily accessible, from the ferry to the islands to Plimoth Plantation to antiquing along 6A to going to the National Seashore or Ptown for a day, all are within easy reach of my home.

I also love that there are no crowds at this lake or in the area, but the beaches and the hubbub of the Cape are a short drive away.
