HERE IT IS MID- FEBRUARY AND WE HAVE ONLY FOUR WEEKS LEFT TO RENT FOR THIS 2022 SEASON.

TAKE A LOOK AT OUR CALENDAR. WE NOW RENT FRIDAY TO FRIDAY -- ENJOY A WHOLE WEEKEND IN THE COTTAGE.

REMEMBER, JUNE IS OUR FAVORITE MONTH ON THE CAPE AND THE BEST KEPT SECRET -- LONG DAYS, EVERYTHING IN BLOOM, AND NO CROWDS! FIND ONE OF OUR JUNE WEEKS TO RENT.

This charming, modern, waterfront, air-conditioned cottage is located in the exclusive section of Orleans called Mayflower Point where the Namequoit River meets Little Pleasant Bay. The secluded cottage boasts scenic water views, quiet nights, and birds galore. The living space has A/C, ceiling fans in the main room and bedroom along with hardwood floors throughout, new appliances, and windows on all sides. The grounds around the cottage are full of mature trees, flowering bushes and plants -- beautifully landscaped. Settle into this wonderful vacation spot with plenty of closet space and a fully equipped kitchen.
The one level cottage has a wraparound deck off the living room accessible thru sliding glass doors and a second deck thru the bedroom slider to enjoy that cup of morning coffee. It sleeps only two, so you both can truly get away on your own. The cottage has high speed internet service, an HD flat screen TV with cable, and a DVD player. We are a ''green'' cottage with solar panels on the roof, natural cleaning products and a recycle program for tenants.
It is a 75 yard walk to the water where you can launch your kayak or paddleboard. Skaket Beach on Cape Cod Bay is 3 miles away, and Nauset Beach on the Atlantic Ocean is 4 miles away. Pilgrim Lake and Crystal Lake (both fresh water) are within walking distances of the cottage. The bike path in downtown Orleans is just 2.5 miles away.

    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

    Serenity

    This is our 9th year staying at this peaceful cottage. This cottage is perfectly located, close to beaches, restaurants and the Town of Orleans. And if you like baseball, it's the home town of the Orleans Firebirds (an elite league for college players). The cottage had everything you need for a quiet, relaxing vacation.
    Plus the owners are terrific! We look forward to our week in this perfect cottage on the Cape.

    7th Stay- A Lucky Charm

    We feel lucky to have found this cottage about 10 years ago. And now we've just finished our lucky 7th stay. Our honeymoon in 1965 was spent in Orleans and we've been returning to this area ever since for vacations. The cottage is ideally situated for our active lifestyle. Our kayaks are kept just 1 minute walk away on the banks of the Namequoit River near its entry into Little Pleasant bay. We can paddle in all compass directions, depending on wind and tide and our mood for adventure. We never tire of the natural beauty of the Bay nor the views of stately Cape homes nestled among the trees and hills. Pleasant Bay is a kayaker's paradise. There are NO jet skis and few other motor craft just mostly beautful Cat class sail boats. Our bikes are kept comfy and dry in the garage below the house for cycling to town and from there onto the Cape Cod Rails to Trail. We can take walks on quiet dirt roads. And we enjoy morning sun on the deck sipping strong coffee.

    Kevin and Molly are very attentive to their guests. Over the years they've made upgrades to the kitchen appliances and added AC, although we've not needed it.

    It is always so wonderful to welcome you both back...especially this summer when we are starting to feel safe again. Thank you for the wonderful review but then you guys are wonderful renters. And you enjoy the area and all it has to offer so thoroughly. I think you win the award this year for getting out in your kayaks the most days and the longest times. Hope we see you back here next summer.

    Private and peaceful

    The cottage on Mayflower point was spotless, comfortable and very spacious. We especially loved the deck where we spent hours listening to the birds, the breeze in the pines and just relaxing. The kitchen is good size and well furnished with all you need to cook a meal. The grill worked better than ours at home.

    We love Orleans and this cottage was very private and peaceful.
    Probably an SUV would be better than our sedan on the unpaved roads.

    Perfect cottage

    After seven years, this was my second stay at this cottage. I call it "My Happy Place". The cottage is immaculate and the surroundings are perfect for a very restful vacation.

    The two outside decks, overlooking a beautifully landscaped lawn, made eating and reading outside very enjoyable.

    The location is close to ocean and lake beaches, fine restaurants and shopping If there happens to be a rainy day.

    Perfect Vacation Cottage

    In one word this was a perfect cottage for us to stay in. The cottage is roomy, bright and exceptionally clean. We really liked Molly's beach themed décor. Enjoy breakfast or maybe an afternoon drink on the deck.

    Close to everything we liked to do, swim in Crystal Lake, Nauset and Skaket Beaches as well as the town of Orleans. Convenient to Chatham and Wellfleet, also.

    Best cottage we have rented in the 40 plus years we have been visiting Cape Cod.

    Wow! Thank you for that great review. Given your history with and time on the Cape for all those years, yours is a highly regarded compliment. We are so glad you enjoyed yourselves (the weather helped!) and had such a fun time here. Hope we see you back next year. Enjoy the rest of your summer.

    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!
