My husband and I were fortunate enough to stay here for a long weekend getaway. We'll need to plan on a longer stay the next time. We had such a nice time. We were there with friends (4+) and we all had plenty of room to relax, hang out, cook together and sleep very well. It was nice to relax in the back yard as well as tucked in the couch with a good book.
The house is in a great neighborhood for walking - down one street to walk through the marshes; down another to get to Nauset Beach. It was easy to get to the house and just as easy to get back on the highway when we had to head home.
There was plenty for us to do - shop, eat, drink, rest at the beach. The shops are wonderful. We found some great gifts that were not traditional tourist fare. We were there on Labor Day and enjoyed the parade downtown. This is an active community with lots of pride as we could see in all the floats that came by. It was easy to find a spot (near a really good coffee shop) to watch the parade.
As for eating and drinking - when we weren't cooking lobster at the house (plenty of kitchen/dining space) we enjoyed appetizers and drinks in town - Joe's had THE best oysters - $1 each, and a perfect hang out bar; or at Liam's down on Nauset Beach. Liam's had a great chowder and I'm not sure what else, because the chowder was so good. Both were very close to the house.
Being so close to everything was great for us. We were able to fit in a lot of fun, as well as some rest, in a short period of time. The house is just right for short or long stays without crowding each other. We truly enjoyed ourselves.
