Description

Description

This charming 1920's seaside cottage is less than a 1/10th mile leisurely stroll down a winding path through the dunes to beautiful Skaket Beach. Kids love exploring the tidal pools filled with hermit crabs and other interesting creatures. Our cottage is pure old Cape Cod with just enough modern amenities - WiFi, Cable, flat screen TV, gas grill, washer/dryer, newly installed ductless AC/heat pump on the 1st floor, and two room air conditioners on the second floor along with a ceiling fan in the master bedroom and a window fan in the middle bedroom.

Situated on a lovely half acre, and surrounded by beautiful trees and plantings, the house affords a private, cozy oasis for your family. There is a picnic table for outdoor dining, and a delightful outdoor shower. The cottage has 3 bedrooms, all on the second floor. The master bedroom has a Queen size mahogany sleigh bed along with a half bath, the 2nd bedroom has a full size bed, and the 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds. The first floor consists of a full bathroom with a stall shower and natural stone floor, a full kitchen with separate dining area, and a comfortable living room with TV and fireplace. After a wonderful day at the beach kick back on the FABULOUS WRAPAROUND PORCH and enjoy a good book or take a snooze on the porch hammock.

There is a small storage shed on the property which contains all kinds of beach equipment including a beach umbrella, several varieties of beach chairs, numerous beach toys, a cooler, and two beach carts which can be used to haul your stuff to Skaket. There is a tether ball set up on the lawn near the picnic table.

The cottage is a half mile from the renowned Cape Cod Rail Trail- ideal for bicycle enthusiasts, and near all the fine restaurants and shops in town, including the Orleans Farmers Market. The Cape Cod National Seashore is a 10 minute drive from the cottage.

We welcome well behaved dogs, not less than one year of age, at no additional charge. Dog owners are expected to clean up after their pets, and if dogs are left unattended in the house they will need to be crated.

    Thank you for renting your beach cottage to us. We had an amazing week and loved the proximity to the beach. It was so cozy and quiet with beautiful birdsong to listen to all day long. We appreciate your help and kind recommendations on restaurants and things to do.

    Thank you so much for the stay at your beautiful cottage!! This place was absolutely magical. Renting a place by Skaket Beach has been a dream of ours for the past 11 years! Skaket Beach is the most amazing beach and our 5 young children all thoroughly enjoyed every minute there as did their parents. We could not have been more impressed by how well cared for your home is. We felt so "at home" and welcome here. The short walk through the dunes to Skaket made it so pleasant and easy to spend time at the beach.We loved being here and plan to make staying here a yearly summer tradition. show more show less

    Thank you for another perfect week at Skaket! Your home is perfect for every kind of weather - sunny days playing on the lawn or heading to the beach, rainy afternoons lounging on the porch, reading on the hammock, and playing games indoors. And the birds!
    We've adored returning here and look forward to coming back again!

    Authentic Cape Cottage

    Our family (four adults, four year old grandchild, and a labradoodle) stayed for two weeks in this adorable historic Cape house. Skaket Beach is probably the best beach on the planet for children, with warm tidal pools and powdery sand. We loved the sense of Old Cape Cod in the cottage. The ambiance is rustic, but the amenities are lovely, up to date, and the decor is tasteful, quirky and charming. We appreciated the outdoor shower, quilted blankets, private yard, shady porch with hammock, full modern bathroom (shower - no tub) downstairs, and half bath off upstairs off the master bedroom. The beds were extremely comfortable. Late May/early June weeks were a bit chilly and rainy this year. But the large Orleans/National Seashore area has a wealth of resources: nature centers, shops, galleries, ice cream parlors, restaurants, thrift shops, and theaters. We booked tickets from Provincetown for a Whale Watch excursion one day. On board we heard a Marine biologist explain the geological and wild-life history of the Cape. Our little one watched a baby humpback cavorting with a little seal, all on a sunny afternoon. After dinner on the waterfront in P-Town, returning to the cottage was a restful delight. A memorable two weeks on Old Cape Cod. show more show less

    Coming back this year for my 4th stay!

    Each Fall for the past three years I have spent either two or three weeks in the most delightful, comfortable, vacation cottage ever, creatively designed with every convenience in mind. Throughout this delightful, home-like rental cottage, every detail has been thought of, and installed with care: from the interesting, traditional furniture; household textiles and linens; chairs, sofas, in the wraparound porch and garden, as well as in the sitting and dining rooms; a kitchen with every possible pot, pan and utensil one could need, and attractive, generous-size table ware. And, more than the generous way the house is equipped, what adds to its charm and "homey" feel is that throughout the cottage the owners have adorned each room with pictures, ceramics, and interesting artifacts. This creative, personal touch gives the cottage the feel of being a much-loved summer home, rather than a regular rental, and one can imagine that the family who live here have just gone away for a bit and are sharing it for a short time with the lucky visitor. All this, and only steps from the spectacular Skaket Beach, where I can take a pre-breakfast morning walk, and, later in the day, stroll down to watch the most spectacular sunsets I ever experienced. show more show less

    This 1930's cottage as so charming for our family. We stayed for a full week and thoroughly enjoyed Skaket Beach and the Cape Cod Rail Trail. We really didn't need to pack so much and were so close to town center we biked everywhere. The cottage was completely stocked and very clean. We had the opportunity to meet the owners who were so helpful and kind to our family of 5 + our lab. Thanks for the memories, we are hoping to go back soon.Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Pet-friendly, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Adventure Seekers, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers.Response

    My family just returned from staying in this cottage for a week and we had the best time. Being a 2 minute walk away from the beach is the best. The cottage is beyond lovely. It is filled with amenities, has tons of space and is the perfect vacation spot. The house is spotlessly clean and has a lovely feel to it - inside and out. The grounds are lovely, with complete privacy. My kids loved playing outside in the yard and on the swing set. I loved waking up every day in such a comfortable house with great light pouring in. After running around all day, going to the beaches and parks, it felt great returning to the cottage to have a meal and regroup. Because the cottage is steps away from the beach, we pretty much caught sunset on the beach every night. The cottage couldn't have met our needs any better or been a nicer place to stay. Thank you!!!! I highly recommended the cottage for a great vacation place!! show more show less

    We have been renting our cottage on Skaket beach for the last 5 years. We live locally on a small farm in Brewster and take pride in assuring that the cottage is fully stocked and that our guests have everything they need for a relaxing and carefree vacation. We take pride in adding those personal touches that make you feel you're in your home away from home, not just a rental cottage.

    What is special about this property?
    Built in 1927, our cottage maintains its old world charm, which we have artfully blended with modern conveniences. Our guests particularly enjoy the solitude and privacy of the large screened in porch - or maybe just napping on the hammock. Set back a good distance from the road, and surrounded by lush plantings the property is both quiet and surprisingly secluded. Kids can romp around the grounds and enjoy the swing set while parents lounge nearby. An inviting, enclosed outdoor shower awaits your return from the beach. Speaking of the beach, there is no need to pay the $20 daily parking fee. Just load up one of our beach carts and take the pebbled path down through the dunes to the less crowded portion of the beach.

    What is special about your town?
    Orleans is a quaint but vibrant seaside town situated between bay and ocean beaches. It offers both family and fine dining, and the Cape's most popular coffee and homemade sweets shop - The Hot Chocolate Sparrow. There is an old time candlepin bowling alley in town - fun for the whole family. The Orleans farmers market, open every Saturday, is the largest on the Cape. There are no big box stores, but plenty of small and unique shops and boutiques. The Cape Cod Rail Trail - a bike and walking trail which now runs from Yarmouth to Wellfleet attracts biking enthusiasts from far and wide. You can bring your own bikes or rent from one of the local bicycle shops. The National Seashore in Eastham is but a 10 minute ride from the cottage. If you enjoy either people watching or whale watching, Provincetown is a mere 25 miles away.
