Description

Description

This newly renovated and lovingly restored 1940's cottage is within walking distance of Sundae School Ice Cream, Nauset Farms, and Zia Pizza 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.

Last Days of Summer

I can’t say enough about this summer cottage. It is perfect in every way. Decorated to perfection, comfortable and in such a great location - so close to Nauset Beach! This was our second year renting and we are looking forward to renting again next year.

We had a terrific stay at the Summer House beach cottage in Orleans. It is just miles from the bay beach (Skaket) and the ocean beach (Nauset) in a very private location away from hustle and bustle. The 3 bedrooms and screened porch made our family of 5 feel very comfortable. The kitchen is well equipped with all necessary dishes, frying pans, collander, etc. It is an easy drive to Orleans, with easy access to fine eating and seafood. There is an charcoal grill for at home eating.The O'Briens were gracious hosts, easily accessible for questions. We would highly recommend this cottage to our friends for future Cape vacations. show more show less

This rental was the perfect rental for a family. Every small detail was thought of by the owners and we thoroughly enjoyed our trip! We had 3 adults and 2 children and it never felt crowded. The spacious screened porch was perfect for winding down at night. Was within a few minute drive of several beaches. My children loved the outdoor shower which was great for rinsing off the sand after the beach. Would definitely stay here again!

Thank you for sharing your super cute cottage with us and our family. We especially loved having “grown up” time on the back porch after the kids went to sleep.

See you next summer!

Fabulous stay at The Summer House

My family and I loved staying at the Summer House and can not wait to go back! The owners were amazing to deal with, so hospitable and nice. The cottage was recently wonderfully restored and all the rooms are so comfortable, clean, and relaxing. Very beach feel! My daughter loved the bedroom with the windows that opened out into the porch, great place to take a nap! The porch itself was lovely, we really enjoyed spending time out there, the yard is so private and peaceful.
The cottage location was perfect for us, we could walk down to the market or ice cream shop, and it is close to the Rail Trail and many restaurants and shops. Its also an extremely short drive to either the bay or ocean beaches, and it's a great base to explore other other areas on the Cape.

All in all, it was such a great vacation house and we look forward to returning!

Quintessential Cape Cod Cottage

We could not have been happier with our stay at the Summer House. The house is open, airy and bright. The screened in porch is one of the best rooms in the house. The house is newly renovated and the decor is shabby chic. Jim and Barbara have done a wonderful job on renovating this house. The house was spotless. Jim was super responsive in answering all of our questions prior to our arrival and even during our stay. We will definitely be back next summer and maybe even sooner!

Jim and Barbara have spent the last 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.
