This cottage is seamlessly woven into the beautiful mystique of Cape Cod. Anyone looking to have a genuine Cape experience will be missing out if they do not book this property! From the adorable lattice covered side porch with seating for two to the lush hydrangeas to the outdoor shower to the wiffle ball friendly backyard, your time spent here is just as good outdoors as it is inside.
I have stayed at this property both in the summer and fall. There is more than enough space for a family or multiple couples or a friends get-together. I've stayed in the bedroom downstairs and one of the rooms upstairs with two twin beds. It is quiet, comfortable and every morning I woke up refreshed, no matter if the morning was sunny or there was rain passing through.
The kitchen is well-stocked with a coffee maker, dishes, pots, pans, knives, cutting boards and baking utensils (my good friend and I baked an amazing apple pie while staying there). We grilled marinated veggies on the gas grill. The last time we stayed at the cottage, we brought our bikes with us and did some big day trips so it was nice to come home and put together a healthy meal and not have to get back in the car again to sit in a restaurant. (The Shaw's right off of the highway is conveniently located for groceries. There's also a booze store, CVS and sports store in the same plaza.) Downtown Orleans is easily accessible by bike or car. Orleans Cycle will rent you a bike if you did not bring your own (located right next to the Cape Cod Rail Trail).
There's also some board games, books and DVDs to peruse if you're looking for a random encounter to keep you busy.
The close proximity to Nauset Beach is also a bonus. We ran to the beach our last morning there (1.6 miles, about 3 round trip) and got to see the sunrise over the East Coast which was just spectacular.
The cottage is well-stocked with linens and other supplies. There is a very helpful guest binder that answers any question you could possibly have about your stay. The WIFI is easy to access and the showers have great water pressure and HOT water.
When you stay at this cottage, you feel like you're a part of the history and magic of Cape Cod. After you return home from your trip, it's the kind of place you immediately look forward to returning to.
