A great house and a great location!
Our family traveled to Orleans to celebrate our oldest granddaughter's fifth birthday. In addition to my older daughter, son-in-law and younger granddaughter, aged 2, we also were fortunate to have with us our younger daughter who lives in Seattle join us for this festive occasion.
As soon as we arrived we were impressed with the cleanliness, the decor, and the location. The home is pristine and very nicely decorated. The bedrooms were nicely appointed with new bedding. The living area was spacious and the kitchen very well stocked with everything needed to prepare a dinner for a family of seven. The photos truly represent the space nicely. Kathleen, the owner, was available to answer questions and give necessary information.
We especially loved the wrap-around deck with clean and comfortable outdoor furniture as well as the outside shower.
Nauset Beach is approximately a 15 minute walk from the property. For those that have not visited Cape Cod, the National Seashore has several wonderful beaches close by, namely, Marconi, Nauset Light, Coast Guard, and Nauset Beach is part of the same shoreline. The sand and surf are wonderful on the Atlantic side. The bay side beaches are also very close by such as Skaket Beach and Rock Harbor. Even though we had two small children, our family and the children preferred the Atlantic side.
There are so many wonderful places to eat along Beach Road as well as the center of Orleans. We visited several and did not have a bad meal. There is a breakfast place called Hole in One which gets great reviews. Arnold's in Eastham should not be missed. We ate at Rock Harbor Seafood and had a great meal.
For those that will be visiting Cape Cod for the first time, Orleans is situated in a location where it is easy to get to the National Seashore, the Bay Beaches, Shopping, Restaurants, and the towns of Chatham, Brewster, Eastham and Wellfleet which are all wonderful to experience. I would recommend this location and rental to family and friends without reservation.
