The “wow!” factor continues as you walk through this amazingly well-equipped and unbelievably well-stocked house, with its wonderful views from, in particular, the lounge and the main bedroom windows. The pool area at the rear is great, with sun loungers and a table and chairs for al fresco dining: it just lacked sunshine while we were there! (We were suffering from the tail-end of Hurricane Hermine). The deck area at the front and the very extensive garden leading down to the Pond are great places to sit out in the evenings when the sun – what little we had of it! – goes behind the trees at the back. From the house you can easily walk to Nauset Beach – a wonderful beach that goes on forever and is a must to be visited. A short drive takes you to the Centre of Orleans with its many local shops. To the north of the town are a useful supermarket (Stop & Shop), a Liquor Store (you can’t by alcoholic drinks in the supermarket!), as well as a number of restaurants / take-outs: we would highly recommend ‘the Knack’. The house is also wonderfully situated for activities further afield. We went on a whale watching trip with Dolphin Fleet Whale Watching out of Provincetown (27 miles) – and saw about 40 whales! We took the Hy-Line Ferry from Hyannis (25 miles) to Nantucket and, while there, visited Nantucket Vineyard / Cisco Brewers / Triple Eight Distillery – there’s a free shuttle from Nantucket Town – for what turned out to be an amazing (and educational!) experience. We would also recommend a trip to Chatham (9 miles) – to us a very typical Cape Cod town. With so much to do from this ideally situated house, our week there went all too quickly …

It is so easy to escape the world here...Nauset beach is a bike ride away as is the town with a great food market. The cottage itself is fresh and newly renovated...even a great washer/dryer! Lots of outdoor activities and outdoor space at the cottage to grill. I did a lot of cycling and biked up to Coast Guard Beach.
