RE: 2022 SEASON: WE WILL POST CALENDAR AND WEEKLY RATES IN JANUARY AFTER WE GIVE PREVIOUS SUMMER RENTERS FIRST PICK FOR NEXT SEASON. PLEASE EMAIL US IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN RENTING OUR COTTAGE AND WE WILL KEEP YOUR NAME ON A LIST TO CONTACT IN JANUARY.

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.

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.

A Lovely Getaway!

This is a truly lovely place for 1-2 people who are looking for a peaceful, quiet, away-from-it-all setting, yet only a few miles from downtown Orleans. The photos on this web site are totally legit -- a clean, airy, light-filled cottage that will feel like a respite from it all. The owners are thoughtful and welcoming, and the cottage is very well-equipped. (Check the hall closet if you need a blender!)

Bring kayaks if you can; otherwise there is nearby swimming, biking, and trails for walking.

Just discovered: daily morning yoga in Chatham on the beach ($20), weather permitting. Ditto for Orleans, I guess!

Absolutely charming cottage

We have been visiting the Cape for over 50 years and especially the Orleans area. Mayflower point is a hidden gem and this studio cottage is perfect for two, young or old. Bring a kayak cause there is easy access to water. We saw wild turkey and even a coyote.

We would highly recommend this charming cottage for a quiet retreat...Thanks Molly and Kevin for sharing your little piece of heaven....

Wonderful peaceful week on the Cape!

This was our third stay at this charming cottage! The property is tucked away in a beautiful setting which was quiet with great views and a cozy comfy vibe. The owner Molly always makes a point to stop by and say hi, which is such a quaint welcoming touch! The cottage is completely equipped with everything you need for a great vacation stay. There are so many wonderful things to do in Orleans.

Charming Cottage

We've been vacationing at the Cape for 46 years and we have to share that this charming cozy cottage is the nicest place we have ever stayed. It was meticulously clean when we arrived, bright, airy and comfortable. We found everything we could need for a restful week and enjoyed the quiet, peaceful setting. We are grateful to have found you and hope to come back again.

Our Second Visit!

This is our second stay at this cottage on Mayflower Point. We were here for two weeks last August and are just finishing another two week August stay. We really know this property! This is a guest house on a lovely property right on the water. The house and grounds are immaculate and kept to a very high standard. Look at the location—on the water—easy kayak access right next door. Maybe ten minutes from Nauset Beach and ten minutes from charming downtown Orleans, BUT incredible peace and quiet. Mayflower Point is a private point of land—all the properties have large parcels of land and privacy. This is a quintessential Cape Cod retreat.

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!
