Description

Description

This recently renovated and lovingly restored 1940's cottage is within walking distance of Smitty’s 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.

Pillows and bedspreads are provided. Renters are responsible to bring their own sheets and towels. There is not a washer and dryer but there is a laundromat nearby.

    Great Cape Cod Cottage

    This cottage is delightful! It's small, but has 3 bedrooms, which each can sleep 2 people, so it's roomy enough for 6. The back porch was our favorite place to relax! There are some room air conditioners that work well to cool the cottage down. However, on the Cape, A/C is not usually necessary because of cool breezes. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and enjoyed the Cape Cod rail trail, National Seashore and the nearby beaches.

    Highly recommend!

    Wonderful location and property

    We had a wonderful stay and loved all of the thoughtful touches throughout the cottage. We loved this location in Orleans. The screened in porch was amazing & it's great how it opens so fully to the house so you feel like you are outside. Listening to the birds was also a highlight and very relaxing! Highly recommend!

    Very Tough To Beat!

    My wife and I have been renting this cottage in the off seasons for 4 years now. Its central location in a very quiet wooded neighborhood is super. Despite this you are in walking distance of restaurants, groceries and even a great ice cream stand! Nauset beach is an easy bike ride as are all the Cape Cod bike trails. Jim and Barb are consummate "landlords" who live in Orleans and have raised their family there. They are not absentee landlords and truly know the lay of the land in terms of things to see and do. On a scale of 1-10 the outdoor shower gets a 10, and the small bungalow out back is perfect for overflow activities and stuff you might want to store securely and out of the elements. show more show less

    Cozy, Spotless, Spectacular

    This cottage provides the quintessential Cape experience. The restoration work preserves the traditional vibe while providing just the right amount of modern amenities, and it is immaculately clean. The back screened-in porch is fantastic for morning coffee and home-prepared meals. Orleans is a lovely town with all you need close by; get your coffee and sweets at Sparrow's. The location is close to, well, everything the Cape has to offer. This is a wonderful place for a getaway.

    Beach getaway!

    The cottage was immaculately clean and worked perfectly for us. The large screened in porch is fantastic.

    It's a beachgoers paradise, you can soak up the sun, watch the seals, go for a walk and swim at Nauset during the day, then end the day watching the sunset over the water at Skaket.

    The Perfect Retreat

    The "Summer House" is a perfect retreat from the world. Every detail of this completely renovated cottage has been carefully considered and curated. A clean, airy and comfortable breath of sea air, this cottage is the perfect refuge. The screen porch alone is a gathering place the is surrounded by birds and privacy.

    Great Stay at the Summer House

    Our family enjoyed a great week here. The house is as-advertised - extremely clean, tidy and organized and had everything we needed for our stay. Plenty of room for our family of 5.

    Jim is a great host. The house is located on a very quiet road and you really can't see or hear any neighbors when hanging in the back yard or in the screened porch. The screened in porch in back is the best spot for morning coffee and afternoon cocktails.

    The location is great, easy walk to Nauset Farms, the Whisk for breakfast or coffee, and of course Ice cream. Quick drive to Nauset Beach or to town for restaurants and mini golf. Overall a great spot! show more show less

    Lovely Beach Cottage!

    We loved our 2 week stay at The Summer House. The cottage is immaculate, lovingly restored and beautifully decorated. My favorite spot was the large, screened-in porch which looks out over the garden and back yard studio. The porch, yard and studio were perfect play spots for our busy 2 year-old granddaughter. We had ALL the weather- rainy and cool, hot and muggy plus a run of perfect days. We were comfortable through all of them.

    The location is ideal - close to 2 beaches and a walk to Nauset Farms, a great place for morning coffee, sandwiches for the beach and quick dinner fixings. Jim was an ideal host, checking in regularly via text and there whenever we needed anything. show more show less

    FIVE STARS!!! MAGICAL COTTAGE!!!

    We had a wonderful, relaxing week here. Location is great-very quiet, yet close to everything, including a fantastic ice cream shop a five minute walk away... And the cottage is exceptionally pretty, both tasteful and simple. Couldn't ask for a more relaxing or pleasant base for a Cape Cod vacation.

    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.
