Description

Description

The three bedroom, two bath, spacious, mid century modern home is hidden on over an acre of shrubs and low trees. A 7 minute stroll takes you to Carleton Shores, spacious, private beach. When you have lots of gear drive to the parking area then a two minute walk down the path.
The large living room has a seating area for conversations, TV and bird watching; or choose another spot to play games or read a book; or head out the slider onto the west deck with a cup of coffee at the bistro table. The cathedral ceilinged dining area opens to the east deck with outdoor dining and seating. The cozy kitchen has everything you need for a quick meal or a big dinner. Use the gas grill outside for burgers and more.
The first floor bedroom has a queen bed and is adjacent to a full bath/shower and an office/laundry room. Two sunrise view bedrooms and a full bath/shower are on the second floor. The south bedroom has a pair of twin beds set up as a king, or separate them. The north bedroom has two twin beds and twin bunk beds. Both bedrooms have blackout shades if sunrise is too early. Sleep with the sound of waves on the beach.
There is a two car garage and parking for an additional car outside.


Drive west down the Old King's Highway to historic Sandwich Village or go a little farther to the supermarkets, restaurants, and ice cream shops near Sandwich harbor and the canal. Head east on Old King's Highway to historic Barnstable or to Hyannis with its many shops and eateries.

Bicycle in the neighborhood or beside the Cape Cod Canal, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, or the Barnstable conservation area. Access to Scorton Creek, for great kayaking and fishing, is less than a mile away. A men's ten-speed and women's 3 speed bicycles and a few beach chairs and surf toys are available for your use.

The kitchen is well equipped with pots (including a 12 quart one), pans, utensils, dishes, cutlery and glassware

You can supply your own linens or use the ones in the house, provided they are returned to the appropriate closet in a clean and neat condition.

    Despite the rainy weather (Hurricane Lee!!) we had an amazing time at Helen's Dream House. The home is beautiful and had everything we could want. The private beach is such a gem! The birds, rabbits, and turkeys gave us so much entertainment ... and nothing beats the sound of the waves in the near distance. THANK YOU and we hope to come back again.

    Thank you so much for letting us stay in this lovely house! We had such a relaxing week and the kids loved the bunk bed and games! We loved the quiet beach - skipped many stones - and the privacy of the property (with a view in some rooms!) was perfect! Thanks so much!

    We had an awesome week with family and friends here at Helen's Dream House. We loved the neighborhood and quick access to the beach for hanging and sunsets. Great sandbar before the crazy rain and tornado warnings. Loved just coming back home and grilling and playing games with the Kiddos. Thanks! We had a great time!

    Great hosts.

    This has been an exceptional June here at Helen's Dream House! Beautiful sunny days plus the thrill of a thunderstorm and days of stormy seas. It's so lovely to go to sleep with the sound of the waves. We were joined by our best friends from Connecticut for 5 days and spent time with friends from Brewster. Doug is a volunteer miller, and the Herring Warden in Brewster. We saw the herring fry leaving the pond and a flock of black-crowned night herons waiting for them! Miles of beach walks! Coast guard beach, Race Point, PTown and a 7 1/2 mile hike at Sandy Neck. Love the ping pong on a rainy day! show more show less

    Perfect escape

    The house and location were perfect. My brief 4 days there seemed like a week. I quickly settled into a relaxing routine, enjoying the flow of the days, relaxing in the airy and unique house and on its wonderful giant decks (yes, plural!), exploring the quiet and safe neighborhood, making the mere 5 minute walk to the gorgeous beach where everyone was welcoming despite it being a private beach, running and hiking on the conservation trails across the street or at the state beach park a few minutes away, showering outside under the blue sky, watching the giant TV screen at night, and puttering around Sandwich, Barnstable and even across the bridge in Plymouth where I met dear relatives.

    As others have noted, sleeping to the sound and sight of the ocean capped off this gift of an experience. Equally wonderful was the responsiveness and kindness of the owners to any and all questions I had. They even left some local treats for me to enjoy!

    Peter and Janette inherited Helen’s Dream House upon Peter’s father’s death in 2009. So let us tell you a bit about its history.

    Helen and Lou were introduced to Cape Cod vacationing by spending time with friends at their Mashpee bay front camp in the 1950s. While searching for a place of their own, they found this lot in Carleton Shores. After years of saving, and Helen’s return to work as a physical therapist, they built their own house in the early 1970s. Lou and particularly Helen enjoyed visits from family and many friends until her death in 1995. Lou kept Helen’s dream house carefully maintained but seldom used after her death. Helen and Lou’s favorite time was when their family all converged on Helen’s Dream House for a week together, going to the beach, visiting Heritage Plantation and going to the Sandwich bandstand for concerts.

    We enjoy being able to care for and share this home as Helen loved to do. We don’t have the ability to use it as often as Helen did, so we decided to share it by renting to those who would like to experience vacationing on Cape Cod. We have found that multi generational family vacations and two families sharing have really enjoyed Helen’s dream house as we have done.
