Description

Description

Immaculate, bright cottage with ivy and geranium-filled window boxes and borders. Packett House is located in a quiet, lovely, year-round neighborhood. Our guests have used the words ''well-equipped, relaxing, comfortable, clean and orderly'' to describe the cottage. They especially like the location, large, private back yard, outdoor shower, patio and garage for bikes, kayaks, beach gear ... We have a window A/C in the living/family room and fans throughout the house and great cross-ventilation. One bedroom has a queen bed with dresser and closet, the other has two twin beds with dresser and closet. We also have a side rail and a Pack'nPlay for children. A pull-out queen is located in the living room along with a game table, games, videos and books. The kitchen and living room areas are separated from the quieter dining and bedroom areas by a pocket door for sleeping guests or children.

Follow a private road a quarter mile to Cape Cod Bay at Rock Harbor--spectacular sunsets are often accompanied by a steel band. The charter fishing fleet is the largest on the East Coast. Watch them come in and unload the day's catch. A small beach is located at the harbor with Skaket Beach a two-mile bike or drive. Town center and bike trail is less than a mile. Sunbathe, swim, surf and fish at Nauset Beach on the ocean four miles away.

Guest Reviews

This is my third time staying here and as usual I've loved it. The weather this trip has been wonderful and I've gotten up mornings and walked on Nauset Beach. I love coming to stay here--Cape Cod feels like home and this house like my home away from home. You honestly couldn't ask for a better place to stay--location, hospitality, everything you could want all in one house. Thanks Wayne and Arlene! I'll be sorry to leave today (especially knowing my Mom gets to stay a few more days), but look forward to returning next time.

This was our fifth year staying at your lovely home on the Cape. We had a beautiful week and as always the boys enjoyed playing in the big backyard as much as they did playing at the beach. You are lovely people and we have enjoyed gettng to know you over the years. See you next summer.

We stayed in this cottage for the second year in a row. As soon as our first magical vacation week ended, we decided to return the following year. It had everything we hoped for and more--from the library of Disney videos and DVD's for our kids, to a washer and dryer in the basement and a clothesline and outdoor shower in the yard, to a kitchen complete with everything from coffee pot to lobster pot, cheese board to frozen beer mugs, muffin tins to wooden skewers--we have young children and cook our meals at home, and always found exactly what we needed in the cupboards and drawers. The house is exceptionally clean--the oven glistens, the bathroom tile gleams, even the gas grill and garage are pristine. It's like being the guest of an exceptionally thoughtful and hospitable host--the owners have anticipated everything you might need or want for a comfortable stay. One evening they even brought over a delicious cucumber and tomato salad from their garden. We enjoyed nightly ice cream and desserts at the Hot Chocolate Sparrow and bike rides to the beach every day. The stores in Orleans are a mile away, so we could run out to the drugstore or fish market and be back in no time at all. There are also a fish market and restaurant in Rock Harbor, a very short walk on side roads from the house. The bike path is approximately one mile away, and we felt safe biking on the road between house and path with our kids in trailers. The yard both in front and back is flat and roomy, so the kids spent lots of time running around. We recommend this cottage with no reservations and are hoping to return next year! show more show less

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the Cape in your lovely home. It's obvious that you take a lot of pride in maintaining the cleanliness and character of the house. It is the perfect size for our family of four, and the backyard patio, outdoor shower, and use of the garage for our bikes/canoe/beach gear were some of our favorite features. Some of our favorite activities included a visit to the Chatham fishing pier, sunsets at Rock Harbor, two days at Skaket Beach, a visit to Nauset Beach for a picnic dinner and watching the seals, a lunch and afternoon in P-town, and canoeing around Little Pleasant Bay (more seals!). Thank you again for your hospitality! We loved the fresh garden veggies and zucchini bread. A nice touch! show more show less

Packett was Wayne's Aunt Olivia's married name and it seemed right to pay homage to Lawrence (Blondie) and Olivia (Liv) by giving it their name--hence Packett House. We have been renting Packett House since 1999 and pride ourselves on meeting the needs of our guests by welcoming them to a clean, well-equipped and comfortable home away from home. When our guests arrive we greet them personally to see if they have any questions about the house, area or a special need we can accommodate. Each year we look forward to meeting new visitors as well as catching up with those who have stayed previous years.

What is special about this property?
We thought we would let our guest book comments tell you what is special about this property:

“What a delightful house and the best equipped of any house we have ever stayed! Thanks for thinking of all the little details. “
Mary and Bob A. (Cromwell, CT, Sept 2001)

“Thanks so much for all the wonderful, thoughtful touches in this wonderful house—we’ve come to the Cape for nearly 15 years and this was the best ever!!”
Joe, Carole & Sam S. (Skaneateles, NY, Aug 2002)

“This is our third year renting in Orleans and your home is the cleanest and most thoughtfully equipped. We immediately felt at home here. Thanks again.”
Alec, Marisa, Hazel and Ged L. (Arlington, MA Aug 2006)

“We had a magical week. .. Everything was perfect – the videos for the kids, the yard and patio, the proximity to the bike path and beach.''
Leeanna, Paul, Annabel and Donavan C. (Tuckahoe, NY Aug 2014)

“We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on the Cape. It’s obvious that you take a lot of pride in maintaining the cleanliness and character of the house. ... the perfect size for our family of four, the backyard, patio, shower and use of the garage for our bikes/canoe/beach gear were some of our favorite features.''
Sincerely, Eric, Jen, Caroline & Patrick M. (Weathersfield, CT Aug 2015)

“This was our 5th year staying at your lovely home on the Cape. And as always the boys enjoyed playing in the big backyard as they did playing at the beach. See you next Summer.”
