    Wonder week at Skaket

    This is our 3rd year staying at the Skaket Beach house. The hosts were great to work with the whole time also very responsive to any questions we had. The house was extremely clean upon arrival. Our family loves the location to walk to Skaket for beach days and sunsets and even close to the bike trail. The kids loved running around the big back yard and we loved having quite mornings on the back deck. We will definitely be back! Thank you for a great vacation! 10/10!

    Our Favorite Cape House

    The Skaket Beach House is now our favorite Cape house! Jennifer, the host, was delightful to work with from the inquiry, to the booking, through the arrival and check out process. The house was beautifully decorated with a coastal and cozy theme. The house was so clean and had all the amenities like home. The rooms had plenty of drawers and closet space for all of our clothes. There were hooks in all the rooms for hanging towels, jackets, etc. The extra closet in the front hallway was great for putting our shoes and beach bags. The beds were very comfortable too.

    The landscaping was gorgeous with a large backyard and deck, overlooking a marsh. The hot tub was a bonus and we used it several times. We used the grill several nights and it worked great! Our family loved playing air hockey in the basement and had our routine game nights all week long.

    One of the most favorite things about this house is the proximity to our favorite beach! Even though our girls are older (12 & 9), they love the bayside beach. We walked to/from Skaket Beach everyday and it was perfect! This house is in a great location to everything - grocery store, downtown shops and restaurants in Orleans, Ice Cream Cafe, and Rock Harbor Pier. We were able to easily hop on the CCRT (rail trail) and biked to one of our favorite seafood places, Cobie's, one night.

    Thank you for a fantastic week at Skaket Beach House, Jen & Dan! We made so many memories and can't wait to come back!

    Consistently Consistent!

    This was our 3rd year staying at the Skaket Beach House, and we are happy to say nothing has changed! The house is still as clean as it was the first year. The yard is just as nice (if not nicer) and always well kept. We love the little, quiet private road the property sits off of. We feel safe in the neighborhood.
    There is amazing bird life, as well as a few bunnies always around the yard. I love enjoying my morning coffee on the back deck overlooking the yard and marsh.
    We always go to Chatham, as well as Provincetown, so it' a nice in-between location for driving to either. It's 10 minute walk to the beach, which we were able to maximize this year, by not having to bring our dog. (We love the option to be allowed to bring a pet, as we don't always have someone to watch him at home). The house is so well cleaned, that doesn't have any signs of allowing pets, which is appreciated.
    Our daughter loves the air hockey table, and we all make use of the hot tub.
    The outdoor shower is never buggy (otherwise I wouldn't use it!) and a great size, so you aren't bumping into the sides. I could go on and on about it all.
    Jennifer is always available via phone call, text or email and very easy to work with, We look forward to our return each year.

    This is an absolutely darling little Cape home, beautiful views of a large wetlands expanse with many many birds! We visited in mid October, we had great weather. Many beach walks in t-shirts. The hot tub on the back deck is a highlight. It's a 1/4 mile walk to Skaket beach, there is no sidewalk but the road is not that busy and there are other walkers. It's about 0.5 mile in the opposite direction to the bike path. The remote controlled gas fireplace was a hit. Very toasty. There are three beds, and it's BYO linens fyi. All the basic amenities are there, laundry, dishwasher, drip coffee maker, gas stove, really nice water pressure and hot water in the bathroom, outdoor shower on the deck… very nice overall. We did bring our dog and all was well, but the marsh in the back is home to coyotes, we heard them yipping and howling after dark, and our Husky mix pup was spooked. Highly advise keeping your dog close by your side after dark, though most likely the coyotes would keep away if there were people outside too. The experience lent to the adventure of the location! show more show less

    Enjoyed our stay here. Home was very clean and well appointed. The extra sitting area was a plus, we spent 2 very cozy nights enjoying the warmth of the fireplace. Location is convenient to Orleans making our morning coffee run to our favorite coffee shop a breeze. Would definitely stay here again.

    3rd year in a row

    This is our 3rd time renting this home and we're already looking forward to the 4th. Spacious, clean and on a great private lot. So close to Skaket beach we often ride our bikes down to catch the sunset. You can't beat this location as it's minutes away from great restaurants, shopping and even a brewery. The bike trail network can also connect you to local businesses without the traffic. We loved spending time in the yard and there's lots of wildlife in the marsh. There's 2 separate seating areas with TV's and a great basement for games if you have a rainy day. We were fortunate with a perfect week of weather and spent most of our downtime on the deck under the awning. We can't recommend this place enough and are so happy we found it. If your looking for a mid-cape rental that's close to everything but also quiet and private you can't beat this house. show more show less

    HOME AWAY FROM HOME My family and I had such a great time and stay at Jennifer's home. It was so clean, comfortable, private, and very calming. We loved the backyard and deck so much. The area was so quiet at night and felt very secluded. The home is also perfect for a dog! We will definitely be back!! Thank you, Jennifer!!

    Jennifer's home was just perfect for what we needed and we were even able to bring our pup!! We escaped after the holidays, so were there off-season, and didn't really do anything touristy except relax!! It was about 1/2 mile walk to Skaket Beach and a short drive to Nauset Beach. Just under a mile to the center of town which has everything you need (grocery stores, coffee shops- definitely recommend the Hot Chocolate Sparrow, restaurants, boutique stores, etc). Skaket Road is on the busier side, but definitely still walkable to the beach and both entrances of the Bike Path. We loved Jennifer's home and were able to utilize the fireplace on cold nights and also enjoyed the game room downstairs (equipped with Ms. Pacman, Wii and an Air Hockey table). The home is on the smaller side, but didn't feel small when you were in it. Had two separate 'living' spaces, ample closets, dressers, and the bedrooms felt more spacious than the pictures show. As we were there off-season, not much was open, and we did all the cooking at home. We would recommend if you like to cook, to bring your favorite spices/etc as the kitchen was stocked with the bare essentials. Overall, Jennifer's home was perfect, and would be the perfect getaway in the summer for a couple or small family or in the winter, if you're looking for a nice place to unwind. Jennifer was very responsive especially considering we arrived on Christmas Day and left of New Years. Would definitely recommend Jennifer's home if you're seeking a Cape escape in Orleans!! Thanks so much for having us, we appreciate it!! show more show less

    Perfect Cape Cod Vacation House

    This is our 2nd year staying here for vacation for our family of four. The house was clean and felt cozy. We loved being in walking distance to Skaket beach our two girls loved playing for hours in the tide pools. The location was excellent as we could easy go into town, the bike trail, or take a day sightseeing the other local towns.

    Our girls loved the backyard as there was lots of yard games and a private space to run around. My husband and I loved waking up with coffee on the private deck. Jennifer checked in to make sure we were ok while we stayed and prior to checking out. We plan on returning to vacation here as often as we can! show more show less

    Jennifer and Dan lived on the Cape for almost 20 years before relocating to the North Shore for work, but our ties to the Cape run deep! We are living on the Cape again, so we are quickly and easily available for any of our guests' needs. The Skaket House is our little getaway, and we would like to share it with responsible folks who appreciate the natural beauty of Cape Cod, the joy of a nice sail on the bay at high tide or a walk on the sand flats at low tide, and relaxing family fun time!

    What is special about this property?
    Skaket Beach House is only 4/10ths of a mile (10-minute walk) to popular family-friendly bayside Skaket Beach, with its dramatic 1-mile tides, and the ocean beaches and freshwater ponds are 3-4 miles away. The back deck looks over the marsh that borders the property. A large flat backyard is great for bocce and badminton. A 4-person hot tub is on the lower deck - great for chilly nights! There is plenty of room inside the house for different activities - sitting in front of the fire in the sitting room, playing a game or watching TV in the family room, electronic or non-electronic games in the basement rec room.
