Description

Description

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 – a break from the pace. The cottage has high speed internet service, an HD flat screen TV with cable, and a DVD player.

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.

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.

Clean, Quiet, Cozy

If you are looking for a clean, quiet, peaceful place surrounded by nature, this is it. Bring your kayaks. You can launch from the back yard into the Namequoit River and explore Little Pleasant Bay, Arey's Pond, Sampson and Hog Islands, the Pochet Inlet, Meeting House Pond and much, much more. Perfect for a couple, you'll have everything you need.

Clean Peaceful Cottage

We spent a week from July 27th to August 3rd. Everything was just like we saw on the site. The cottage is very functional, with nice quality equipment and well thought out. The cottage is surrounded by the nature and very peaceful. It's very near from everything, the beaches are close and we could swim in fresh water just by the cottage.

Quiet and Comfortable

2019 was my 4th time staying at this property. Obviously, I've tremendously enjoyed each visit. It's quiet, very comfortable and off the beaten path, but just a short ride to town and beaches. The very quiet bay behind the house - visible from the deck - is ideal if you bring a kayak/canoe. I finally met the owners this year - they live nearby - and they couldn't be nicer. Enjoy!

Peaceful Cottage

This was our fifth year staying at our favorite cottage on the Cape. Although this year Mother Nature did not cooperate we still had a very relaxing stay at this wonderful cottage on Mayflower Pointe. We were able to visit our favorite places between the raindrops and then come back "home" to relax and either bring back dinner or go out to our favorite haunts in Orleans. I can't say enough about this cozy cottage and the welcoming owners. Molly always stops by for a chat and to make sure everything is fine. We love it here and over the years we have stayed at a few homespun the Cape but this cottage is our favorite will certainly come back.

The cottage has everything you need including a wonderful deck with a gorgeous view and we always take a quiet walk around the neighborhood. If you are looking for a perfect cottage for two to enjoy the Cape...look no further..this is it!

We felt bad too that it rained so much during your week. It is glorious outside today but a lot more crowded than your favorite month of June. Fingers crossed for your time with us next year -- and thanks again for being one of our annual guests. We love having you both.

Highly Recommended

Our second stay at this beautiful cottage in Orleans. Just the perfect size for a couple. You wouldn’t want it any bigger. Queen bed very comfortable with a private deck right off the bedroom.. Large open concept kitchen has everything you need if you decide to dine in. The property is immaculate and exactly as the listing states.The owners have thought of everything to make your vacation enjoyable and comfortable.

It is quiet & peaceful as you away from downtown Orleans and any road traffic as the location is at the end of a country lane. The cottage is only 2 miles to town which we easily walked a couple of times. We have never experienced a cottage SO quiet on the Cape.

Orleans is perfectly located for exploring the entire Cape.

We have vacationed on the Cape for many years now and were so lucky to come upon Molly and Kevin’s listing.

We will definitely be back and highly recommend

It was wonderful having you return to the cottage and stay for two glorious June weeks. You had perfect weather and did so much during your time here. June is a glorious month on the Cape and we were happy you discovered that fact. Thanks for renting with us.

5 years of peaceful vacations here

We've rented Molly's cottage for two weeks each of five summers. It's been the perfect place for us. Most important is to be able to walk just 200 ft to our kayaks that we keep nestled on the bank of the peaceful Namequoit River near where it joins Little Pleasant Bay. We paddle whatever distance and direction we feel like, exploring and revisiting many destinations. We also enjoy cycling into Orleans and then on to destinations along the Cape Cod Rails to Trails or just walking along nearby quiet dirt roads. And nothing compares to sitting on the back deck sipping coffee each morning as the sun begins to warm us. It's the true definition of a "hideaway"! show more show less

It is always wonderful to have you return to the cottage for your two week sojourn in this beautiful spot. I think you both might love it here more than we do -- hard to imagine. You did paddle everywhere this year and did explore on your bikes more and more of the Cape. We hope we see you next year for your sixth time in the cottage. Thanks again for renting with us. All the best.

Exceptional Cottage!

We are finishing up a 2 week stay at this guest cottage. The house and location have exceeded our expectations in every way! The location in the private Mayflower Point area is incredibly quiet and picturesque. The private dirt roads are a pleasure to walk. Residents have made a concerted effort to preserve the natural landscape. Much to our surprise, we have seen turkey and deer on the property. And we have heard the Great Horned Owl at night. While kayaking we have seen an Osprey, seals and a pair of swans.

The cottage is immaculate. The owner has done everything imaginable to assure that renters will be comfortable. The decor is charming. Ceilings are high and there are lots of windows and sliders - all contributing to the bright, airy ambiance of the cottage. We are already chatting about our next visit!

Thank you! We are so happy that you have had a good two weeks here. The weather was wonderful (OK there were two unbearably hot days but the AC helped) and it seemed like you two explored ALL of Pleasant Bay in your kayaks. This is a wonderful spot to experience the calm of the waters and nature all around. Hope we do see you again next year. Thanks for renting with us.

Top-notch

Exceptionally quiet, clean and comfortable cottage with 2 deck areas and outdoor gas grill. Layout is great; lots of window light. A perfect fit for two. Owner is pleasant and responsive. Orleans is full of natural beauty and is convenient for Cape excursions.

So glad you had a great time in the cottage, despite the rain storm one afternoon. . We enjoyed having you both and are glad you appreciated the quiet of the neighborhood. Here you are in the middle of August and "August" is barely noticeable on Mayflower Point -- little traffic and NO noise -- that's what we love about it here. Hope you will be back next year and again, thank you for renting with us.

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!
