Beautiful location, Lovely home.

5 of 5
We spent the fourth of July week at the Fellows House. The house is beautifully furnished and very clean inside and out. The dining area has a large picture window and breathtaking views of the ocean as do most all windows of the house. The kitchen was well stocked with Pottery Barn dishes and plenty of cookware. The two car garage was very nice with garage openers provided. My husband and I rented the property and invited our son, his wife and our twin granddaughters age 4 to stay with us. We enjoyed the beach which is minutes away and the weather was superb. We spent much of our time on the wrap around porch, dining and relaxing. I did not mind bringing our own linens since we drove from Michigan but the one thing the adults agreed we would change were the queen beds. We felt that they were too soft and not very supportive for such a high end rental. On the last day it rained and we went to the Natural History Museum in Brewster which the children loved. We would also recommend the Mirbeau Spa which is nearby and provides a relaxing environment for pedicures, massages, etc. Our granddaughters who love to watch the cartoon Peppa Pig called it our "holiday house" and it was just that, a lovely holiday home!
