Description

Description

Welcome to your private retreat on Cape Cod, just minutes from the beach on the north side of the Old Kings Highway, (Route 6A), on the bay side of the Cape. Sitting on the edge of the West Barnstable, Goodspeed House is a recently renovated 1810 Queen Anne Victorian, and the result is a perfect mix of old and new, melding historical architecture with modern fixtures. Set on a picturesque acre, lush English perennial gardens create an enchanting New England setting, reminiscent of Old Cape Cod. The established gardens make it feel tucked away from it all, while still being located near the sea and all of Cape Cod’s attractions.

Enjoy a vacation filled with outside living. Go 4-wheeling on nearby Sandy Neck Beach. Dine in the best of Cape Cod’s restaurants nearby. Hike the nearby conservation trails or take in art, theater, local gift shops. Or stay home and grill on the BBQ and dine alfresco. Recline in the hammock. Feel the breeze in your hair as you ride the swing. Enjoy cocktails and relax in the jacuzzi at the end of the day. Surround yourself with sun and shade, and enjoy the comfort of this very special place with spaces for everyone to chill in this relaxed country setting.

Love the Beach? Goodspeed House is a mere 7 minutes by car (2 miles) to famous Sandy Neck beach, making beach days a snap. Sandy Neck, one of the longest beaches on Cape Cod, is a classic barrier beach that stretches for 6 miles along Cape Cod Bay. It is a special place with distant views that go on forever of Cape Cod Bay. And the Neck's adjoining conservation area is a scenic spot to hike, fish and bird watch.

Go to a different beach everyday if you wish! Our included beach pass allows you to spend a relaxing, fun-filled, sunny day at any one of 14 splendid beaches covering an expanse of over 100 miles in the Town of Barnstable. Afterwards, return to Goodspeed House and rinse off in the outdoor shower.

Stroll through the lovely gardens. Gather on the peaceful wrap-around screened-in front porch. Stretch out in the yard on sun-loungers and dream away the day. Luxuriate and soak away your cares in the Jacuzzi hot tub (when weather allows) amidst an intoxicating symphony of perennial blossoms. Grill some freshly caught fish on the outdoor BBQ. Enjoy good conversation and grill s’mores in the firepit. Select a book from the library and pass the time away on one of several inviting Adirondack chairs. Or curl up by the fire in the guest living room on cooler evenings to finish your book. Goodspeed House offers plenty of spots for everyone to enjoy downtime.

Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this charming historic Queen Anne Victorian was built by the Fish and Goodspeed families circa 1810. The home abuts acres of conservation land offering privacy. Goodspeed House has comfortably elegant rooms featuring antiques with a mix of Cape Cod casual chic furniture and decor. This light and lovely home has all the warmth you’d expect from its heritage – wide pine floors, ship's captain staircase, eccentric ceiling angles, curving hallways and an inviting wrap-around porch, where you can start your day with morning coffee, or retreat to in the afternoon and evening for drinks and interesting conversation.

The dining room is sunny and welcoming and has seating for 8-10 people. The exterior has the must-have outdoor shower, and when weather permits, use of a Jacuzzi hot tub to relax and unwind after a long day at the beach. If you’ve stayed here in the past, the kitchen was recently updated.

With 3 queen bedrooms and 1 twin bedroom, Goodspeed House provides a comfortable space. The bedrooms are spaced out for privacy on each corner of the home. There is a Primary bedroom suite with a Queen bed and an oversized marble walk-in shower on the first floor. Upstairs another queen Primary bedroom suite also features a bathroom with an oversized marble walk-in shower. Another queen bed and the twin bedroom make up a “suite” and share the same bathroom. Each bedroom is air-conditioned.

There are two sides to this historical charmer: on one side are additional guest quarters that are currently occupied year-round, and on the other side, recently renovated, is The Goodspeed House, which is the space being offered to rent here. Although they are attached, they have separate entrances and separate living quarters. WiFi is included with the stay.

Like no other village on the Cape, West Barnstable is defined by its history and geography — both of which are evident as you approach this quaint village from the west. Route 6A, designated one of the 10 outstanding scenic byways in America, gracefully winds its way along the northern edge of the Cape. Stately elms and maples line the route forming, in spring and summer, a lush canopy over this former stagecoach path. In the fall, the canopy changes to a blaze of harvest colors.

West Barnstable is home to the amazing Old Village Store, with the best sandwiches around, along with the West Barnstable Train Station & Museum, where you can hop onto an excursion aboard the Cape Cod Central Railroad. At Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary, you can explore gentle trails of sandy beaches, butterfly-filled meadows, woodland trails, farm animals and expansive tidal flats with million dollar views of Barnstable Harbor and the dunes of Sandy Neck barrier beach. There are kayak tours, boat cruises, or family nature programs available here, as well. West Barnstable Pet and Supply is located across the street with live animals, as well as the Whelden library.

Ideal for small retreats, family vacations, or a Cape Cod getaway with friends, Goodspeed House is perfect for a summer of relaxation, adventure or any combination of both. And if you’re looking to experience a place with a sense of history, then look no further! We invite you to experience relaxing coastal elegance at this very special place by the sea.
