Description

Description

This newly renovated and lovingly restored 1940's cottage is within walking distance of Sundae School Ice Cream, Nauset Farms and East Orleans. Bike to Nauset Beach or head into Orleans for great coffee at the Chocolate Sparrow, or for shopping, restaurants and playgrounds. The Orleans Firebirds baseball team, part of the historic Cape Cod Baseball League, plays other Cape teams nearby at Eldredge Park. The Cape Cod Rail Trail goes through the center of Orleans, and you can rent bikes for the day or week.

The main living and kitchen area is bright and airy. The kitchen has french doors that open up to a cheerful and roomy screened porch for dining and relaxing, creating a seamless indoor/outdoor living and dining area.

Our home has three charming bedrooms and two full baths. Each bedroom has its own unique character. There is a spacious master suite with a brass queen bed, ceiling fan, tv, walk-in closet, and private bath with a soaking tub. There is another bedroom with a double bed, and a third bedroom with two single beds and large windows that open onto the screened porch. Amenities include quiet yard, screened porch, cable TV, wi-fi, charcoal grill, and outdoor shower.

The property is on a quiet street and surrounded by woods on two sides and an open field on the other side. There is a spacious side lawn for enjoying outdoor games and activities.

You have your choice of two wonderful beaches close by: Nauset Beach on the ocean side if you want waves, or Skaket Beach on the bayside is popular for families with younger children. The cottage is about halfway between the two beaches. Charter fishing is available in Rock Harbor. Various seal watching and sunset cruises are also available and a whale watching trip out of Provincetown is an amazing experience.

New MA lodging tax of 14.45 % added to all rentals after July 1, 2019. Pillows and blankets are provided. Renters are responsible to bring their own sheets and towels.

A charming cottage

This was our first time in Cape Cod and we couldn't have chosen a better place to stay. We were welcomed by Jim upon our arrival, the cottage was very new, spotless and well equipped. Our family of five enjoyed our peaceful stay. Proximity to many beaches, restaurants, adorable little towns made this home a perfect choice. We look forward to coming back, possibly in the Fall.

Charming!

During these challenging times, we were most grateful to spend time at our fave place on the planet: the beauty and serenity of the Cape is unsurpassed. The cherry on top: our stay at The Summer House was all we could have hoped for! No detail was spared in creating an oasis of charm. The House is clean and inviting too. A+

Seldom does a property match the pictures so well as this. The owners are responsive and responsible and have taken a classic Cape home, expanded and thoughtfully updated it to create a delightful retreat where every detail is in place. An enjoyable porch on a lovely and private yard, an easy walk to Nauset Farms, and proximity to Nauset Beach rounds out an offering that is easy to recommend.

Cottage Retreat

We spent Labor Day Weekend on Cape Cod in the most relaxing, well appointed cottage. Never having stayed in an Air B&B I was pleasantly surprised. It was spotlessly clean, and so warm and welcoming. Every where you looked there was something enjoyable and relaxing to look at. You truly felt as though you belonged there. We were there with my son, daughter-in-law and granddaughter, and there was plenty of room. The yard was large and well maintained, you truly got to enjoy the night sky the way it should be seen. It was convenient to lots of beaches, towns, and restaurants. It was evident that the owners take great pride in this house, I hesitate to refer to as a house, it was really like home! All of us truly enjoyed our stay there, and we thank the owners for all the personal touches that truly made it a cottage retreat! show more show less

A Very Inviting Property....

The property was perfectly sized for a vacationing family of five. Enough room for comfort yet compact enough that we were not "over housed". We had what we needed to prepare for days spent at the beach without having to spend a lot of time getting the house back in order.

The screened porch was our favorite room for family gatherings. During what was a hot summer week it was a place of comfort with a cooling breeze to enjoy breakfasts and dinners. For sleeping the air conditioners and fans were adequate to ensure a good nights rest to get ready for the following day outdoors.

The grounds are well kept and the neat plantings, the enclosing conservation land, the bunnies, hummingbirds and minimal traffic on the street make it seem the property is distant from the attractions and businesses on the Cape. That is deceiving as Nauset Farms is a short walk away and Orleans is less than a five minute car ride to keep you supplied. The seashore is an easy bike ride, why pay for parking?

Finally we felt safe as a family at the property. The kids rode their bikes on the quiet street or up to the store for treats without our concern. Neighbors all said "Hello" and Barbara and Jim seem to have good relations with them to ensure things are "kept an eye on".

This property was a big part of our having a really enjoyable Cape vacation.

Cape Cod Family Escape

Our family of four was in need of some rest and calmness after busy work schedules and summer internships. We managed to squeeze this week in right before sending my daughters off to college. It was just perfect for us. The cottage was decorated so simply with just the right amount of detail. Charming is the word. It was absolutely spotless and everything new as it was completely renovated not that long ago. The French doors off the kitchen opened up to the screen porch allowing for expansion of living space. So cozy. Location couldn't be better. Nauset Farms and Sundae School ice cream within a short walk. Jim took care of everything we needed and was very hospitable. Thank you so very much for sharing your home with us. show more show less

Summer House in East Orleans

Wonderful stay for a family of four adults. Beautiful and fresh, spacious, impeccably clean and convenient to our favorite spots in Orleans Center. It was great having an outdoor shower to use after the beach and nice to sit on porch having breakfast. Felt like the good old Cape days when simplicity ruled for relaxing times...except this house was beautiful and exceptionally well kept. It could not have been a better spot. Highly recommend.

Jim and Barbara have spent four years lovingly restoring this classic 1941 Cape Cod cottage.

We added a 300 square foot master bedroom and bath addition, and totally renovated the original 600 square foot cottage.

The interior walls are done in 1 X 8 ship lap pine boards, identical to the original exterior wall construction. All the ceilings except for the vaulted master bedroom are done in 1 X 6 pine bead-board. All walls were painstakingly spackled, sanded and hand-painted by Barbara, using Benjamin Moore Simply White, which gives the entire cottage a bright, crisp appearance.

Each room has its own distinctive identity and features, from the built-ins to the custom windows and furnishings. The cottage sits on a very quiet half acre, surrounded by woods and a daily chorus of birds. Our quiet street feels as though it has more people walking or biking than cars, which adds to the quiet and peaceful setting.

When they're not working on the cottage, Jim is a local real estate attorney and Barbara is a pediatric nurse. They also have five grown children and two young grandsons to try to keep track of.

What is special about this property?
Our cottage is unique in retaining the character and authenticity of the original 1941 cottage, while giving it the brightness and light of a new home. The original floors were sanded and refinished, which gives the cottage the amazing warmth of old pine. Adding larger and windows and french doors onto the screen porch give the cottage a light, outside feel.

Sitting on a quiet lot surrounded by woods and an empty field always accompanied by a chorus of birds gives the cottage the sense of peacefulness and privacy.

What is special about your town?
Orleans is one of the most desireable towns on Cape Cod. Close to wonderful beaches and lakes for swimming, surfing, fishing and kayaking, many fabulous restaurants and coffee shops, shopping, bike rentals, access to the Cape Cod Rail Trail and nightly Cape League baseball games make Orleans a great place to vacation.
