Description

Description

We have had a cancellation of repeat guests for the first 2 weeks of July (they bought their own cape house).
July 4th is a wonderful week at the Bay house. A big barge of fireworks is set off in the middle of the Bay and you have stadium seating - from the deck or the beach. People come from all over to watch and you are there!!

Uniquely private and quiet, The Bay House sits on 2 acres overlooking beautiful Pleasant Bay, half way between the charming towns of Chatham and Orleans. It features 200' of private waterfront . Sit on the deck. Watch the boats sail by. Swim, sail, bring your kayaks, paddle boards enjoy the waterfront right in front of the house. . Enjoy the many wood land walks nearby. The town landing is nearby if you have a small boat to trailer.

The two acre property with southern exposure is located at the end of a private drive in the estate area of South Orleans. Built in the 1950's with additions in the 1980's, the ranch style house has recently been renovated and features central air conditioning. Corian countertops, custom cabinetry, and stailess steel appliances are featured in the kitchen. The house includes wireless internet access. The expansive deck was rebuilt in 2021. The dining room is open to the kitchen as well as the deck.

Of the five bedrooms, two are master bedroom suites with fireplaces and master baths. Two of the remaining bedrooms have sets of twin beds. The fifth bedroom has a set of bunk beds. The twin bedrooms share a full bath. The five bedrooms are really five bedrooms - not common rooms that become bedrooms at night with pull out sofas. There are no sofa beds, futons, trundle beds, or cots. Washer and dryer are in a separate laundry area and there is an enclosed outdoor shower. Furnishings, bedding, and decorating are new throughout the house. The cleaing fee.is included for all rentals. Bed and bath linens are included for weekly retals.

Our bookings are usualty Friday to Friday as our returnign guets much prefer to get in before the crazy Saturday/ Sunday traffic. This way you arrive and hae the wekend in front of you for family and friends.

Enjoy the spectacular views from the house and deck. Walk over the lawn to the private waterfront for a swim or to dig clams for dinner. Enjoy the quiet, the sun, and the saltwater. The property is available by the week from June through September and by the week-end in the off season. It is closed from Thanksgiving till April.

The waterfront pictures are accurate. There is sand as well as pebbels, rocks, grass. Jacknife Point - a wide sndy beach with free parking - is just a few miles around the bay.

    Bay House

    We rented the Bay House as the parents of the groom. It was perfect to have our own space to come back to with all of the wedding prep happening at this Estate. The house had lots of room for two families and the bathroom in the bottom floor is beautiful. We found the house to be very well equipped and thoroughly enjoyed breakfast on the deck every morning.

    Idyllic and Comfortable Old Cape Cod

    For 2 years in a row, our family (2 grandparents, son with wife and 2 young teens, and son with wife and 2 toddlers) has enjoyed the privacy and beauty of this Pleasant Bay location. It boasts a large bayside lot with 2 master suites, 2 twin rooms, and a bunk room, with lots of room outside to play. The waterfront, while not an actual swimming beach, is pretty fascinating ... lots of crabs, and even what looked like conch. If you have paddle boards or kayaks, you will love this waterfront. The homeowners are a delight to deal with too. We all loved The Bay House and hope to return in future. show more show less

    Cozy Family Retreat

    We had a wonderful stay on Pleasant Bay. Our two families rented for two weeks and everyone had ample space to hang out together or to find some quiet away from the group. The views are spectacular and the ocean breeze is so soothing! The kitchen has plenty of space and is well stocked to allow for making meals (which for 10 adults can be a challenge), but everything we needed was available to us. We played games in the dining room, and had a movie night in the living room by bringing a few extra chairs in. The upstairs master suite is very cozy. The downstairs is a bit dated, but the bathroom for that room is brand new and beautiful. Our teen kids shared the twin rooms - one room is a bunk bed. We were told that the bunk beds are very firm, but overall everyone slept fine. There is a ton of parking on the large shell covered driveway, which was very convenient with our teen/adult kids all having cars and having to come and go for jobs/internship, etc. As well has having friends come to meet us for the day.

    We own a boat that we kept at a transient mooring in Ryder's Cove. My husband would go get the boat and cruise across the bay, anchor out in front, and our group would load up from there to head out to the bars. It was super convenient. The deck is such a great spot for dinner and drinks, and the picnic table by the beach was perfect for an evening cocktail by the shore.
    We had a little corn hole tournament on the upper level area of the back yard. The images make it look a little flatter than it is, the whole thing slopes down toward the shoreline.

    The owners are attentive and respond quickly if there us an issue. We had some trouble with the wifi and the owners were quick to help us resolve it. Even though it couldn't be fixed on the spot they did their best to get the repair moving while we were there and let us know when they would be coming by.

    Like many of the cape homes we've rented over the years, this home has updated amenities, but is still "Capey." Meaning, it can feel damp at times (especially in the lower level), it has aspects that are aging, but are easy to repair/update. The owners clearly take pride in the home and do their very best to maintain it.

    I wish I could rate this 4.5 stars. I'd take off a 1/2 star only because we all wished the beds were a bit more comfortable. It's the only reason I can't give it a 5 star rating. Nonetheless this home absolutely has everything you need for a wonderful family vacation! We had a great two weeks, even with several foggy and rainy days which was typical of the summer of 2023!

    Lovely home with beautiful views

    We had the opportunity to stay at the Bay House for our daughter's wedding which took place next door at Gentle Heritage. While she was there with her full wedding party in the days leading up to the wedding, we along with our new in-laws enjoyed this house with the 2 very comfortable and private master suites. The house was spotless, had a well stocked kitchen and was nicely furnished. The views are beautiful and early one morning we were lucky to see a couple of deer saunter by. It could not have been better! show more show less

    Wonderful place!

    If you are looking for the perfect place to have a family or friend getaway - this is the place. Our family of 10 enjoyed this home while attending a family wedding next door at the Winslow Estate! It is comfortable and has every thing needed for a large family vacation. The views are breathtaking and it is so restful on the deck! The owners are so wonderful to deal with and made the stay relaxing and easy too!

    The Bay House was the perfect rental for the wedding weekend. Situated next door to the Winslow Estate made it extremely convenient. Each bedroom was well appointed, especially the two queen bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The living spaces are spacious and the patio has a stunning view.

    Ginger and Ken are gracious hosts and very responsive.

    Lovely, well kept property in an exquisite setting. The spacious yard and private beach were great for kids. The view from the spacious deck, and many of the rooms was very beautiful and the setting was peaceful, quiet, and secluded. The house was attractive, comfortable and well equipped. Hope to return.

    Great house

    We stayed for a week with our family of six adults and four children, and had plenty of space both in the bedrooms and in the living areas and large deck, with its spectacular view of Pleasant Bay. They lawn behind the house leading down to the bay and the bay itself got lot of use by the children and adults.

    The house was clean and well supplied, and Ginger and Ken were very attentive to the couple of minor issues that arose. In addition, they went out of their way to find and mail us promptly some items we had left behind.

    Fantastic Location

    We stayed here with a couple of other families in May 2021. It is a beautiful location right on the bay. Honestly, you could spend all day on the back porch looking over the bay. With a slight breeze and some sunshine, the place is absolutely serene.

    The home is well-kept and clean. Very much has the Cape Cod charm to it. Both floors have master bedrooms that look out to the bay, as well as spacious bathrooms. Perfect house for a couple of families looking to vacation together. My kids especially loved the bunk bed on the main floor. show more show less

    Bay House - a perfect place on Cape Cod

    We enjoyed our week at the Bay House so much. Every single thing a family could want in a beach vacation - it's here. A perfect location with stunning views, room for the children to play outdoors, our own beach for swimming and fishing, peace and quiet - and yet still only a 10 minute drive to the grocery store, restaurants, etc. The home is so thoughtfully appointed that even on a rainy afternoon, we were busy with card games, etc. There was plenty of room for our family of four and for a few friends who visited while we were here - a truly spacious, very lovely home in an idyllic setting. show more show less
