This is a beautiful vacation rental. I recommend it to anyone looking for a relaxing getaway.
The house is lovely, with beautiful furnishings and decorations. It is very warm and welcoming. The house was immaculately clean. The beds were all extremely comfortable. The pirate themed children's bedroom with bunk beds is adorable. The house is very spacious, with two full levels. The kitchen is modern and has everything one needs. There's a nice deck outside the kitchen, with a table, chair, umbrella, and a grill. The downstairs game room was the biggest hit with my family. We spent a lot of time in there! There is a table that converts for ping pong, pool, and air hockey. There are darts, a foosball table, and the coolest pinball machine ever!
The lake is beautiful. The water was clear and extremely warm. No motors are allowed on the lake so it was very peaceful. The house has its own private little beach on the lake. There is a long, steep path down to the lake, but it has steps to make it easier. At the water there is a boat dock with paddleboards, kayaks, and a row boat for your use. There is also a floating swimming dock. It was perfect at the water. We spent most of our day swimming, floating, and rowing around the lake. It was pure bliss.
The owner loves the house and clearly wants all renters to enjoy it as much as she does. She is extremely responsive and easy to contact. There was even a wonderful welcome basket for us upon arrival.
The town of Orleans is small enough to be scenic and quaint, but big enough to have everything you need. There are two large supermarkets, as well as other stores you might need. There are plenty of restaurants and ice cream shops. The Cape Cod Rail Trail bike path goes through Orleans and is a beautiful path to ride on.
We will be back next year!
