Description

Description

Relax! Ocean breezes caress this lovely Cape Cod home, located just off the entrance to Falmouth Harbor. Listen to ferries whistle as they carry vacationers to and from Martha's Vineyard, just a 35 minute boat ride away. Start the day with breakfast in the sunlit dining room and watch the masts of sailboats as they exit the harbor. The house is arranged perfectly for a family, with two bedrooms (king, double) on the first floor, and another double on the second, along with a dorm area (4 twin beds) for the kids.

Enjoy a short walk to Falmouth's quaint Main Street through tree-lined neighborhoods, and sample the eclectic fare at some of the area's best restaurants. Swim at Falmouth's wonderful nearby beaches such as Falmouth Heights or Surf Drive. Bike along the Shining Sea Bikeway, through salt ponds, along the shore, and into Woods Hole.

Or stay close to your home-away-from home and catch some rays in the sunny and private back yard, or enjoy a book on the wisteria-shaded patio. The gas grill is perfect for a family cookout, and the washer and dryer provide the convenience of home. This true Cape Cod-style home is nestled in a quiet neighborhood and is a perfect base for either an active stay, a lazy and restorative old-fashioned summer vacation, or a little of both!


Sunny Days:
The yard and surrounding roads are lush with greenery and flowers. Walking and biking are great ways to see the area - and there is so much that is nearby. The Shining Sea Bikeway wends its way 3 miles past Falmouth's beaches, cottages, and ponds. Whether you're a nature buff or shopper, you can find things to do within a mile of the house. Fishing boats, ferries, and scenic sails depart from the harbor daily.

There are exclusive shops on Main Street, and the Falmouth Commodore baseball team plays 2-3x per week in summer. The family-friendly Surf Drive beach is within walking distance and children will enjoy exploring the tidal pools for a variety of sea life and beautiful shells; many other beaches are a short drive or bike ride away.

After biking or the beach, a great place to have a casual meal is at the Clam Shack; it's at the end of the street and has picnic seating right on the water - a perfect spot to watch the boats come and go!


Rainy Days:
We've tried to equip the house with lots of rainy day ideas and activities. There are two TV's with cable, but we also have many games and puzzles that will keep a wide range of ages occupied. A rainy day is also the perfect time to take advantage of the wonderful shops and bookstores on Main Street - a great place to go souvenir hunting or to find the next vacation book. Woods Hole offers an interactive aquarium. In nearby Mashpee, there are movie theaters, a kids' craft center, more shops, and restaurants.


Excursions:
If you're feeling adventurous, there are several recommended day trips. Taking a 45 minute ferry to Martha's Vineyard from the harbor, with or without bikes, is a refreshing side trip - the Vineyard's carousel, gingerbread cottages, winery, bike paths, and scenic vistas are all memorable. Heritage Plantation in Sandwich (a 45 minute drive) is packed with history, gorgeous grounds, and an antique auto museum. The Cape Cod Central Railroad in Hyannis runs scenic and dinner trains to the Cape Cod Canal and back. Provincetown and the National Seashore beaches are only 1 1/2 hours from Falmouth, and offer whale watches, dune tours, more bike paths, and funky shopping areas.

Your description of your charming, authentic Cape house was right on the mark. It was a perfect vacation for our 1st annual Regan get together. You had all the amenities and more. It was truly a cozy, charming house with so much yard space and extra beds! And it was great that we were right in the middle of a walk away from downtown, bike trails & the beach. Perfect vacation!! Thank you for your amazing hospitality!

My family and I rented this Cape house for a week in July and had a great time. It was very charming. We loved the back porch and spent a good deal of time relaxing out there. The rooms were comfortable downstairs and although it was a bit hot upstairs when we arrived, once we opened the windows and got the fans going, it cooled off pretty well. We grilled at the house a few nights but went out a few nights as well to a couple of the restaurants nearby. The location was great... Very close to the beaches on Surf Drive and very close to the Cape Cod Rail Trail which we road on every day. We had a wonderful stay. Thank you! show more show less

Completely helpful and responsive owner. A pleasure to deal with. The house is exactly as described - a Charmingly Authentic Cape Cod cottage. If you want Ritz and Glitz, go elsewhere. If you want Cape Cod as it should be - go here. The house is well stocked with the sorts of things one needs but for a short stay, one might not want to buy. There is no need - most of those things are provided e.g dish washing liquid, soap, kleenex, various sizes of plastic bags etc etc. It is a short drive to all the area beaches, a well stocked supermarket and very close to downtown Falmouth. The street is quiet and pleasant. This is a lovely base for a classic Cape Cod Summer break. show more show less

We could not be happier with our stay at Swing Lane in Falmouth. The house is adorable, we enjoyed many meals on the awesome back patio. Jane was so helpful. I have severe fragrance allergies and she went out of her way to make sure the house was not cleaned with products that bothered me. Would absolutely recommend this property!

We've been using HomeAway for years now, and we LOVED this rental! Quiet, walkable street AND neighborhood. Boat tours and much more in easy walking distance. Shopping in easy walking distance. Good division of space (we rarely saw the teenagers, and they liked having their own space). Also enjoyed sitting in the back yard watching the rabbits frolic. All in all, we recommend this rental, and we'd do it again.

Truly a charming house-it is exactly as described in the posting! We loved that we were located in a very quiet little neighborhood (no street traffic- definitely a plus!) and a 5 minute walk in different directions got us to the beach, the ferry, the market, downtown, or the field for the Falmouth Commodore games! The house was clean, and had everything we needed- we were able to easily cook from the well stocked with pots/utensils kitchen, there was very good connectivity so I could check in with the office on occasion, really, it had everything we could ask for. For a small house, every inch of space is well-utilized. The two bedrooms downstairs are plenty large enough, and the dorm style room upstairs is perfect for even my older-teen kids. There were 5 of us there for the week and we had plenty of space; a larger family would be just as comfortable. The owner is responsive and very easy to work with- our reservation, check-in and check-out process went seamlessly. I cannot think of a single thing we'd change- this house is absolutely perfect for a peaceful getaway. We enjoyed a very relaxing vacation and will absolutely reserve this house for a week next summer. Loved it! show more show less

My family and I absolutely loved our stay in this antique Cape Cod home! It is a large home, decieving from the outside! The many rooms and plentiful beds was just what we were looking for for our wedding weekend in Falmouth. This home was charming with its built ins, fireplace, lovely bedrooms and beautiful back yard. We were close to some wonderful resturants, I highly recommend the Flying Bridge and The Boat House, both on Scranton Ave. This home supplied us with everything I could have possibly needed and more.I did not need to bring anything but personal items. Many linens, towels, pots, pans, dishes and cleaning supplies, games, books and movies at our disposal. We enjoyed our morning coffee under the covered patio in the very private back yard, and strolled to the harbor down the street. We were close to shopping and beaches, markets and bakeries. The owners were very accommodating and very easy to work with giving us all the information in a timely fashion. The house itself was very clean and comfortable. Plenty of room for everyone, including two t.v.'s. The yard was well kept and neat with beautiful trees and bushes.The description was as stated in the advertisment and allowed us have a stress free vacation that provided us with fond memories. We throughly enjoyed our stay in Old Cape Cod! Diane and family show more show less

We've been vacationing in Falmouth for years but until this year, had not found an affordable house that suited our active family. We have now found the place. The upstairs is wonderful for children who want some space of their own and there is plenty of room for guests. The kitchen is very roomy for a vacation house and having a second room with a TV is a great amenity. The house was clean and the furniture was suitable to a relaxing vacation. Jane could not have been more accommodating before and during our stay. We loved the yard, the proximity to the beach, bike path and downtown. Windfall Market and Clam Shack around the corner was especially nice. The street is quiet and flat -- great place for kids to learn to ride bikes! This is a house we will come back to again and again. Please let us know if you ever want to sell! show more show less

This was a wonderfully comfortable home inside and out for our family of 7 (3 generations). The owner was great to work with and wanted to make sure our stay in their home was memorable. This home was very clean and well maintained and could easily accommodate 8 people. It is in a quiet neighborhood setting. With small children we were mostly interested in the beach (Falmouth Heights -a short drive or bike ride), convenience to Main Street, and the bike path - all of which were easily accessible. The yard, especially the back, is a real gem for little ones to run and play safely. Inside, the kitchen is extremely well-stocked,. The bedrooms and baths also had very adequate linens, etc. While we didn't need a/c, we did mention to the owner that we thought it might be a plus in the warmer parts of the summer. We would definitely recommend this property to others show more show less

My grandparents purchased the cottage in 1963 when I was a child. We spent family vacations there for years, and still do with our own children and extended family.



There are lots of special memories: 4th of July Fireworks over the harbor, Falmouth Road Race runners speeding past the end of the street, playing croquet in the yard, bringing a picnic to the Thursday Night Summer Band Concerts on the marina, wandering down Main Street for an ice cream on a hot night, biking on the Shining Sea Bikeway to beaches, and spending special times in the off-season (May and October are especially lovely!).

Because it is a treasured family home, we hope that our guests enjoy the love and care that we put into maintaining it and insuring that they have a good vacation.

Come and make your own memories!


What is special about this property?
One of my favorite spots is the patio. Whether we are gathering for meals, or games, or just reading, it's a cool and quiet place to relax. Birdsong and bunnies are plentiful! Also, there is really no need for a car; the beach, the harbor (and ferries), Main Street, Falmouth's Cape Cod Baseball League team, and a grocery store are all within easy reach on foot.
