Description

Description

Newly Rentable for 2023. Welcome to The Salty Sweet Cottage - a 'Sweet', quaint 1890 quintessential Cape Cottage. - The Cottage is completely restored with all new appliances, bathrooms, kitchen, game room, living room, sun porch, patio and outdoor shower. Antique and one of a kind furnishings adorn every room. The entire house has unique antiques and curated paintings and artwork throughout.

Centrally located on a dead end street in Orleans, the Salty Sweet Cottage is right on the Cape Cod Rail Trail making a bike ride to Skaket Beach (four beach chairs are here for you) or Downtown Orleans is just four minutes from home. Skaket Beach is perfect for young children - never rough. You can walk out at low tide for a mile! We are four miles from Nauset Beach voted the best beach on Cape Cod!

Beautifully landscaped with an inviting sun porch and patio area and outdoor shower, the cottage has multiple meeting areas for conversation, music, games, WIFI, or big screen TV with YoutubeTV (all channels), Netflix, Prime and Hulu. The large lush green lawn has room for croquet, corn hole, volleyball, badminton and touch football.

The Cottage features four bedrooms, one downstairs with a queen bed off the Game room and three upstairs - two with queen beds and one with a twin all appointed with a care for detail.

The Cottage opens to a Sun Porch, with comfortable couch and chairs and a beautiful view. Next you enter the Game room or den. The living room with dining area comes next. This room has the large screen TV with comfortable couch/lounge chairs and table; it makes this the ideal place to unwind at the end of a beach day to watch a movie or series. The dining area seats six comfortably with a beautiful glass table. The new patio off the kitchen has a new Victory barbeque (with an extra propane tank for your convenience) and also has seating for six.

The completely remodeled kitchen comes next with all new Italian SMEG appliances and Bertazzoni range, a quartzite countertop.. It comes complete with toaster, microwave, coffee maker and well as all new silver and dinnerware and other typical cooking utensils.. The downstairs half bath off the kitchen has a custom built cabinet that holds a new Miele washer and drier. The new outdoor shower with changing room behind the house makes for a perfect second, and most days, preferable Cape shower.

The cottage has all refinished original southern pine and douglas fir flooring with stairs to the second floor landing leading to the beautiful three bedrooms. One bedroom has a queen sized white bed frame with closet and dresser. Another upstairs bedroom has a four poster queen bed with a closet. The third upstairs bedroom, perfect for your little one, has a twin bed or can accommodate a crib.

The upstairs bathroom has a clear glass enclosed shower with a beautiful custom designed mirror and vanity.

The kitchen leads to a large patio with brick deck and large area for gathering. The patio has a teak table and chairs with seating for six, a new Victory Barbeque, and additional cocktail gathering area for six.

We hope you come and enjoy our efforts in making a home away from home for your next Cape Cod Vacation in Orleans.

    Adorable Cape Cottage

    We stayed at the Salty Sweet Cottage for a long weekend in Oct. The house is exactly how it is described. Every inch of the house is filled with lovely antiques, comfy furniture and a kitchen that has everything you need to prepare meals and snacks. The house is perfectly located on the rail trail so you can hop right on for a morning run , evening walk or long bike rides. We will back in the summer for a week and are so looking forward to more time there in our favorite CC town. The owners were available at a moments notice with any of our questions. We have been traveling to CC on vacation for over 30 years and this house is one of the best we have rented. show more show less

    Fantastic vacation home.

    Our family has been vacationing on the cape the past 26 years; staying between Orleans, Eastham and Brewster during those years. The Salty Sweet Cottage, by far, has been the best place we've stayed to date; everything we wanted or needed was available within the home and within a walking distance. Bill and Debbie were extremely helpful and gracious hosts. We were very appreciative that they were pet-friendly, and went out of the way to make sure even our dogs were accommodated by having a dog bed, food & water bowls, which we never experienced before. The house was truly a beautiful home. We would highly recommend the Salty Sweet Cottage for your next vacation. show more show less

    Fabulous Stay!

    Bill and Debbie were the consummate hosts, extremely responsive during the booking process and before, during, and after our stay. Their home is gorgeous, immaculately clean, and extremely well stocked. Our family of four (kids ages 12 and 14) lacked for nothing during our week in Orleans. The house has plenty of space to spread out and very comfortable beds. We loved the outdoor shower, eating on the patio, cooking in the beautiful kitchen, and walking to town and Skaket Beach. The house is right next to the rail trail for easy bike riding and walking, just a couple minutes away by car to a Shaw's and a number of restaurants, plus quick access by car to Nauset Beach. Tip: Young's Fish Market at nearby Rock Harbor has amazing lobster rolls (take out) for only $18 and they come with an outstanding view - great spot to watch the sunset. Orleans is a super location for heading out toward the National Seashore, Wellfleet, and Provincetown, as well as in the other direction to Chatham, Brewster, and points west on the Cape. We highly recommend a stay at the Salty Sweet Cottage. show more show less

    Charming Cottage in the heart of Orleans

    Our week at the cottage was incredible! The home and property is remarkably charming, beautifully designed, and thoughtfully curated. It's hard to believe but we found it to be even better than the pictures! It is exceptionally well-appointed, we were blown away at all of the considerations made by the owners in their listing of the home - it has everything needed for a Cape vacation!
    The location is perfect, central to everything. We were able to cook and grill at the house with ease and enjoy valuable time together as a family. Bill and Debbie are the kindest and most gracious hosts, and made themselves available when needed. They have truly thought of everything to help make the stay special. We look forward to visiting again! show more show less

    Stunning cape house right on the bike trail!

    The cottage looks exactly like the photos, maybe even better! It is stunning, with so many beautiful details and thoughtful touches! Everything we needed was there, and more! Lawn games and beach chairs, comfortable beds, fluffy duvets, a beautiful patio, etc! This may be the hidden gem of Orleans—right on the bike path, four bedrooms, two living rooms…can you tell we loved it?! We will be back!

    We are Bill and Debbie and we are new to vacation rentals. We've spent the last year completely restoring 'The Salty Sweet Cottage' - a quaint, original 1890 Cape Cod style cottage in the centrally located town of Orleans. We had rented many times all over the Cape to visit/vacation with our daughter and son and law and now - new baby Isabella....and kept looking for the ideal place to buy and use as a vacation/rental. We'd never rented in the town of Orleans but wow - are we happy we found this place and this town!

    We are originally from California and now live in New Jersey.


    What is special about this property?
    We love the location and the brightness, age and history of the Salty Sweet Cottage. The location on the Cape Cod Rail Trail and how close we are to kid friendly Skaket Beach as well as Sparrow's coffee shop and all the downtown eateries - Rock Harbor Grill, The Beacon, The Hog Island Brewery, Abroad, et al.
    We love the 1/2 acre of lush lawn as well as the compelling patio with seating for six for dining, the Victory Barbeque and traditional outdoor shower with changing room. Our shed has bikes, beach chairs and lawn games as well as extra supplies.

    What is special about your town?
    We think the Skaket Beach in Orleans is the best beach for kids and families on the Cape; you can walk out a mile during low tide and kids can frolic without fear of 'big waves'. If you are into surfing - then Nauset Beach - also in Orleans - is just four miles away.
    The farmers market and artists lofts next to Sparrow are always fun to explore.
