    Always a Delightful Stay

    We first rented in Sept. 2013 and have since returned 7 times. Our love of the Lower Cape goes way back to college days. We're now in our 80s and still enjoy kayaking in every possible direction on beautiful Pleasant Bay, cycling on Cape Cod Rails to Trail or just into town, driving to Wellfleet to hike the Great Island Trail or eat delicious local oysters, and visiting the Monomoy National Wildlife Refure in Chatham. The owners of the cottage live adjacent. They keep the cottage in immaculate condition and are always attentive to any concerns/questions. It's the perfect place to enjoy the Lower Cape in peace and quiet. show more show less

    Secluded, private and immaculate cottage is perfect for 2

    We enjoyed a fantastic week in this classy little gem of a cottage. We liked that it was private yet located close to all the best places to go to. Such as Nauset beach, great restaurants and centrally located to other interest points on the Cape such as Wellfleet and Chatham. What I appreciated the most about this space was the attention to detail. The interior was impressively clean and organized. We loved being able to sit on the deck after a day exploring, drinking a cocktail listening to a symphony of coastal sounds. The trees have covered up the view of the bay from the deck but there are views of the water on the way in to the cottage. We love the Cape and this upscale cottage is a great place to stay. show more show less

    Lovely private, airy and light filled cottage

    This was our 3rd time back to Molly's lovely cottage. It continues to be a perfect place for our Cape Cod vacation - the best place we have rented there in over 30 years of vacationing on the Cape. It is conveniently located to our favorite places in Orleans - Nauset beach, Skaket beach, Rock Harbor for sunsets and Crystal lake for a refreshing and peaceful swim at the end of the day. It is also an easy drive to Wellfleet and Chatham. The cottage is very clean and nicely decorated with plenty of windows and high ceilings. We appreciate both the big deck out back for a relaxing drink in a peaceful and private setting and the bedroom deck for coffee and reading in the morning. Molly makes sure everything is taken care of and we look forward to returning. show more show less

    Little piece of heaven

    On my second visit to this stunning cottage, I was once again struck by the beauty of the setting. It is a superbly restful location, with a beautiful wrap-around deck, the songs of many birds, views of the water, and the sound of nearby boats. The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable, in a very secluded setting, with Orleans Center restaurants and shops only a few minutes away. Everything is nicely set up to permit perfect privacy. This is not your average Cape Cod vacation rental; rather, it is obvious that the comfort and enjoyment of the tenants matters a great deal to the owners. I hope to be back once again next year. show more show less

    Perfect Vacation Cottage

    This was our second trip to Molly's cottage. It is perfect for the 2 of us. The cottage is very clean, bright and airy. We enjoyed breakfast on the deck every morning. We took advantage of Crystal Lake after every trip to the beach for a quick refreshing swim. We were convenient to all our favorite beaches, restaurants and shops. We would highly recommend Molly's place and look forward to coming back next year.

    Hidden Gem

    This stunning little house, tucked away down a dirt road, is well-equipped, beautifully situated, very comfortable and very private. I have been visiting Cape Cod for many years, and it is the most unique and restful place I have ever rented. Everything is provided for a comfortable stay, and Molly is a delightfully hands-off but very responsive host. Although I have a lot of favorite shops, beaches and other attractions in the area that I like to visit each year, I skipped some of them because I didn't want to leave this magnificent spot! I hope to return, as many other guests have done. show more show less

    A piece of Heaven

    I just got back from a week at this lovely Cottage. It is in a lovely spot. I have camped for years when my husband was alive so driving on the dirt roads did not bother me at all. Brought back lots of wonderful memories. The cottage is just like the photos of it.
    This is a little bit of heaven; a lovely quiet place.

    Relaxing Getaway

    So happy we found this cottage, the prior reviews do not lie. Just what we were looking for, low key relaxing beach vacation, This cottage has everything you need immaculate and private. Love the wrap around deck and just sitting outside enjoying an evening cocktail. Molly even came over to introduce herself and make sure everything was good. If i must say i think we had the best weather week anyone could ask for! We hope to be back! Rock harbor grill had the best pizza and cant forget to grab a breakfast sandwich from Nauset farms on the way to the beach. show more show less

    We have rented our guest cottage for the past 12 years, thru local Cape realtors and until last year thru VRBO. We have many repeat renters who keep coming back -- the best references a property owner could have. This is our first year with Weneedavacation. We stopped our listing on VRBO because of their new business practice of limited communication between owners and renters and their hidden fees. We believe that you should be able to communicate with a property owner to ensure the space is what you think it is and one you will enjoy on your vacation. We believe that if you love the outer Cape and all that is has to offer, you will enjoy Orleans, Mayflower Point, and our cottage. Our past reviews support our beliefs and we hope you will explore our listing.

    What is special about this property?
    All of our past renters would agree -- the greatest asset of our cottage is the peace and quiet where the sounds are mostly just birds. It is peaceful and beautiful with woods, water, and wildlife. We are tucked into a corner off the dirt roads of exclusive Mayflower Point and on the intersect of where the Namequoit River meets Little Pleasant Bay. The 100 yard walk to our landing where you can launch your kayak or canoe out to the Bay is ideal for early morning explorations. We think the fact that the cottage is modern, light, comfortable with windows on all sides and early morning sun helps to make a person feel surrounded by nature. The trees attract the birds and the wrap around deck with outdoor seating making the whole experience one of complete relaxation with comfort at an affordable price.

    What is special about your town?
    Orleans is the best of the Cape towns but then we are totally prejudiced. Orleans is centrally located on the outer Cape at Exit 12 -- the elbow of the Cape. Take a look on a map....we are surrounded by water and have Nauset Beach (ocean) and Skaket Beach (Cape Cod Bay). Those plus Town Cove and many town landings affording a variety of salt water experiences. We have Rock Harbor for beautiful sunsets and a bevy of local charter boats where you can fish for stripers and blues. Our downtown area and East Orleans have many wonderful restaurants to enjoy along with some unique shopping. We are only 30 miles to Provincetown and only 6 miles to The National Seashore entrance. Downtown Orleans has the Cape Rail Trail, an 18 bike path where you can easily go in either direction -- toward its beginning in Dennis or its end in Wellfleet. We have local theatre, music, wonderful galleries. Orleans has it all!
