Description

Description

Don’t worry about the sand on your feet! Experience a bit of the Cape Cod of yesteryear. This rustic 60 year-old Cape Cod ranch is located in exclusive East Orleans area on private dead-end road surrounded by beautiful Town Cove and Nauset Harbor. You'll be mesmerized by this secluded setting on one acre overlooking tranquil Rachel's Cove. The second and third generations of our family so enjoy the house and its location that we offer only a limited number of weeks to guests. So grab your week now!

Enjoy a peaceful breakfast overlooking the water on the spacious deck (sliding glass doors from living room and master bedroom). Launch your kayaks or canoes out back at high tide (or any time at the end of the dead-end road) and paddle to Nauset Marsh or the outer barrier beach. Only a 5 minute drive to pristine Nauset Beach or the calm waters of Skaket Beach.

Return home and revive yourself with an outdoor shower and cocktails on the deck, taking in the glorious sunset view. There is a huge bright living/dining room with cathedral ceiling, exposed beams, and an uninterrupted view of the cove.

This private setting is only minutes from Orleans' restaurants and shops, saltwater beaches and freshwater lakes, and the Cape Cod Rail Trail - a great getaway for one or two families (your dog is welcome, on approval). Couples or families with young children: Consider June or September - a beautiful time to visit, much quieter and considered by locals to be the nicest months.

This ''diamond in the rough'' has been a much loved family home for three generations, and is now available to you for your ideal Cape Cod vacation!

    Great Location and Stunning Views

    We have been vacationing with our dogs in the East Orleans area for many years, and the location of this cottage is one of the best. It offers privacy and quiet with many options for walking to enjoy the nature trails and wildlife around nearby coves and town landings. The owners are very easy to work with, and it is evident that the home has been much loved for generations. If you enjoy a classic Cape Cod experience complete with a windswept cottage that offers much to look at and do inside as well as outside, this is a great option. The library is extensive, as are the many collections lovingly and artfully displayed. The kitchen is well equipped with everything in working order. The best parts, however, are the fabulous deck and spacious living room offering plenty of seating and room to relax, a large dining table, and some of the best views in Orleans. While we had to contend with the remnants of Hurriane Ian during our visit, happily the sun came out on our last two days and treated us to two fabulous sunsets to close out our week and leave us with great memories of our visit. Thank you, Holly and Heather, for sharing your home. We enjoyed our stay very much. show more show less

    Peaceful, tranquil and relaxing home

    Quiet, private location yet convenient to everything you need.
    We enjoyed sitting on the deck overlooking Rachel's cove every morning. There were hummingbirds and butterflies visiting the pollinator garden. A nature lovers dream.
    Kitchen is well stocked with everything you need to prepare meals for dining " Al fresco". Beds are comfortable. Holly and Heather are very pleasant and always available for questions.
    There are lots of interesting collections of shells, rocks and wampum throughout the house, it's like being in a mini museum. There are lots of vintage books to read, many of them set in cape cod.
    We hope to return to this charming home soon.

    Lovely

    Second time here, for all the same reasons. A beautiful setting, homey home, all that one could need on a Cape Cod break. Weather was great, barbequed, baked, sat on the deck for coffee and cocktails. It's a really great hang out house, and spotless as well!

    Just what we needed!

    We really enjoyed our week at the Coveside Oasis. The house was well-equipped, welcoming, and comfortable for us, especially on our two rainy days, when we played games and watched the Olympics on the large TV. The tides worked out that we were able to paddle our kayak and paddleboard almost every morning, and it was great to just walk down from the house to the water and go. Both the deck and outdoor shower with a view of the cove were wonderful.

    We look forward to another stay in the future. show more show less

    June in Orleans

    My wife and I were looking for serenity and quiet and were not disappointed. The cottage was lovely, comfortable, and in a beautiful setting.

    Everything needed for a perfect stay was at hand. The deck was a treat and the view from the outdoor shower made it particularly enjoyable. We rented a kayak and had a memorable trip out to the ocean, launching from Rachel's cove at the foot of the property.

    It's definitely a keeper and we look forward to visiting again.

    Authentic Cape Cod

    This was one of those houses that you never wanted to leave. Old school Cape Cod, the real deal, not the hotel/resort version. Which reveals itself as decades of a family vacation home. We were delighted with all of the old time Cape collections throughout the house, lots to look at and enjoy, from nautical, nature, and historical things as well. The beds were all comfy, linens nice, and plenty of good reads around. The house was very well equipped, nothing was forgotten here, just bring yourself and you'll be fine. The deck was well-used at every hour of the day, from morning coffee to star gazing. And the outdoor shower overlooking the water and the bird feeder was fantastic!!! I cannot wait to return. show more show less

    Great House

    We stayed at Coveside Oasis for 5 days in June and it was great! The house has rustic charm and everything you could want during your stay. The kitchen is very well equipped and the rooms are very spacious. We especially enjoyed the outdoor shower and deck. The house has a great view of the cove and is very close to the beach as well as the bike trail. Thanks for sharing your family home!

    Relaxing Getaway

    Glad we decided to stay at this rental overlooking Rachel's Cove.The house is definitely rustic, but pretty cool! Nice open house and bright. Clean and well stocked.

    Very private yard. Couldn't beat the back deck! It was so peaceful. Sat out every afternoon watching and listening to the birds passing by. Even saw a couple of fox pass through! The sunsets were awesome. Also the outside shower was great !

    Thank you so much for posting your review. We are so glad to hear how well our little paradise worked for you, your husband, and your two little pups. Sounds as though you took full advantage of all the things that make our spot special, while at the same time taking advantage of the beauty of the Cape during off season. We hope to "see" you again!!

    P.S. And thank you for leaving the house so "ship shape" !

    Comfortable home, great location

    We were surrounded by water. The back deck looked out on Rachel Cove and in the background there was a constant flow of boats back and forth in the town cove channel. I could have spent the entire week watching the colors of the water and sea grass change over the course of a day. Across the street was a (pretty well hidden) public access path to Woods Cove. Those neighbors were pretty friendly and OK with us anchoring our 15' whaler there. (deeper than Rachel Cove). We pulled our kayaks up on the narrow public swath of shoreline. A quick hop across the very beautiful and alive Nauset Harbor brought us to the barrier beach and an ocean with spots during low tide that got a nice shallow flat break good for body surfing. We hardly ever got in our car. There was a public dock in Town Cove just across from a fish market, liquor store, supermarket, waterfront bar/restaurant tackle shop and boat supplies. We didn't need anything else. Otherwise the bicycle ride into town was a safe and easy 3 mi ride. The runners in our group were very satisfied with the routes they found.

    It was hot, but the house was cool with fans in the rooms and a big open high ceiling room with a great ceiling fan. We were six very comfortable people and the house was so nice and well equipped that we rarely wanted to go out for dinner. Rather there was a crew in the kitchen, another manning a very nice grill while the rest of us hung out on the deck with drinks, conversation and a good book. The yard was great with lots of spots with cool shade and comfort. The shower was awesome. The house felt like a home, It was our center, we all wandered from it doing whatever we wanted, little complicated planning was needed.

    We are two sisters who spent our childhood summers in this home designed by our father in the early 1960s. We, along with our children, still consider this our summer home and not a rental property per se. Guests who most enjoy our home are those who appreciate the old Cape experience, personal touches and a casual ambiance. We love the Cape throughout the seasons and highly recommend visiting in the quieter ''shoulder'' months of late spring and early fall, when you can experience the beauty without having to fight the crowds.

    What is special about this property?
    Our house retains the post and beam charm of its early days, filled with books, treasures and photos of days past, along with a plethora of games and puzzles. Visitors to our home particularly enjoy the spectacular sunsets, the deck overlooking Rachel's Cove and the outdoor shower. People also comment that because our kitchen is so well-appointed, there is no need to dine out in restaurants.
    From our house there is easy access to the cove and as such is a great place to set off in your kayak. The waters of Nauset Marsh and Town Cove are easily accessible and it is possible to paddle out to the barrier beach.

    What is special about your town?
    Orleans boasts beautiful beaches on both Cape Cod Bay and the Atlantic. Skaket Beach, with its warm calm waters, is a favorite for families with young children. At low tide it is possible to stroll for miles on the flats. Nauset Beach offers the cooler surf of the Atlantic, where people enjoy surfing and boogie boarding.
    Orleans has two large, full-service supermarkets as well as a smaller, locally owned one. Around town you will also find many lovely gift shops and boutiques.
    Walking trails, created and maintained by the Orleans Conservation Trust, dot the landscape and access various habitats. The Cape Cod Rail Trail, the major bike trail, runs through the center of Orleans and it is a short ride to Nickerson State Park in Brewster or the spectacular Coast Guard Beach in Eastham, part of the Cape Cod National Seashore.
