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.

2nd time here

We returned after 6 years and had forgotten how great the location is. We walked to the farmers market and craft market. Walked to the Flying Bridge and Pier 37. Walked the east side of the harbor with our grandkids. The neighborhood is very quiet an d the kids were able to ride their bikes without worry. The beaches are close and also within walking distance.

We will definitely be back.

Relaxing Family Trip

We took a three-generation family trip in June and stayed at Jane's cottage. Jane was genuinely communicative throughout the booking process. Prior to arriving, I had questions on internet broadband speed and parking as we had both WFH and newborn circumstances. Jane responded timely and provided detailed responses.

The cottage has many rooms and beds for everyone to spread out. We enjoyed watching Wimbledon and the Olympic trials in the TV room while the kids watched cartoons in the family room. There is one full bathroom downstairs and a half bath upstairs. There are plenty of towels for everyone. Laundry machine and dryer worked great. The dryer is located in the garage.

The cottage is a fifteen minute stroll to the beach with kids in tow. We loved the Cedarwood outdoor shower that was just installed. We didn't cook or use the grill as the location is a fifteen minute walk to downtown for eateries and ice cream.

We look forward to coming back soon.

Great Stay!

Our week at this cottage was just what we hoped it would be! The house was well stocked with everything we needed. The location is key, easy walk to downtown, the harbor and the beach.

Jane was wonderful to deal with and the information provided prior to our arrival was very helpful.

The size of the house was more than what we need for a party of 4, so we had lots of room to spread out. The backyard is beautiful and we spent lots of time enjoying the yard and playing croquet.

We hope to return soon!!

Great Time!

Our family of five had a wonderful week at this home. Great location—walking distance to beautiful Surf Drive Beach, Patriot deep sea fishing boats, Patriot ferry to Martha's Vineyard and even to downtown, Dairy Queen ( kids favorite) and the Commodores Baseball. Bike trails nearby. Spacious home with a great back yard. We would stay here again. Convenient to everything!

Beautiful house in good location in Falmouth. Our family of 6 had a lot of space and really enjoyed our stay. Jane was always responsive and even paid for ice cream for the family which was a nice touch. Thanks Jane. (From Airbnb)

Perfect Authentic Cape home!

Our family has been visiting Falmouth for years and the place we usually stay is no longer available. We were worried our summer in the Cape wouldn't be the same staying in a new place, but we're so glad we found this perfect home by the harbor! The house was stocked with all the essentials, there was ample space for our entire family of five (with room to spare), and the location can't be beat! From this home we were able to walk to Main Street, the beach, restaurants, and to the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. We felt so at home here. If you're looking for a home away from home, in the perfect location, this is it! The host, Jane, is amazing, too! She went above and beyond to make our vacation fantastic. show more show less

Cape Stay

This home gets 3 stars for location, yard and patio. Very nice yard especially if you have kids and we enjoyed eating on the patio for every meal. Although you don’t have a choice as there’s no table inside. I was disappointed in the cleanliness and smell of this home. It’s very cluttered with stuff especially in the kitchen and lots of 1970’s gadgets. We had to clean the utensil holders because they were not clean. The bureau drawers were full (where do you put your clothes for the week?), I’ve never encountered that before. We had a wonderful vacation regardless of this but for the money we spent I think there are updates that could be made to make this comfortable and inviting. Grateful for the washer and dryer and you couldn’t ask for a better spot to be able to walk to the marina and the Flying Bridge for dinner. show more show less

Owner Response:

We are glad that you enjoyed the yard and patio, and the proximity to the marina. We make every effort to ensure that the house is clean before the season begins, as well as between guests. However, some of your critiques were confusing to me. There is a dining room table in the dining room that seats 8; my extended family and I have shared many meals there (you can see it in the photos on the listing). In addition, each room has a bureau with 3 drawers, as well as a closet with hangars; the bottom drawer is reserved for the sheets for the beds in that room.show moreshow less

Just Wonderful!

My family and I had such a memorable vacation at this wonderful summer home. The location is ideal. It is in waking distance to both the beach and town. It’s on a quiet side street where all you hear at night is the ferry whistle. We walked every night down to the harbor (literally a 2 minute walk). The covered patio and the large private back yard is perfect for young and the not so young.. The home is spotless and is stocked with everything you could possibly need. I have been renting on and off for 43 years in Falmouth and I can’t think of enough good things to say about this house. Communication with the owner was excellent and she made the whole process so easy. Thanks, Jane. show more show less

What a wonderful time we all had! We had family flying in from overseas and chose this wonderful cottage as our home for the week. Jane was great to work with, and the house was lovely. Peaceful garden and great location next to the harbor. The beach and town are but about 10 -15 minutes away. Great place to be and we had everything we needed! Highly recommend this home. We started planning our next trip back on the way home.

Great vacation rental

My husband, mother-in-law, and two young children had a wonderful stay at this beautiful Cape Cod cottage. The house was clean and comfortable. It was conveniently located to a nice public beach and Main Street in Falmouth. My daughters loved playing in the backyard which was spacious and beautifully landscaped. Jane, the owner, was very responsive and a pleasure to work with. We would most definitely return!

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.
