Guestbook comments from the manager

and your home was such a treat. Each day brought sunshine, beach, birds and lots of flowers. We loved getting together in the kitchen - this is perfect for big families. We "cooked away" and shared lots of chats, laughter and stories. It was also great to have this home so close to everything. We had an awesome time.

Great Location on the Cape

  • 5 of 5

We chose this rental for its central location on the cape and it worked out great. We did day trips to Provincetown, Nantucket (ferry from Harwich), and Woods Hole. It is also very close to the entrance to the Cape Cod National Seashore and the Rail Trail (biking.) When looking things up, it is closer to Orleans which has a large Stop and Shop, great wine store (Windmill Liquors), a cute shopping strip and good restaurants. The house itself is exactly as pictured and described, with an extra bonus- It's located next door to the Whalewalk inn and Spa which has a workout area and massages. The house is in a very quiet area, no traffic, with a beautiful yard. We loved the well-appointed kitchen and fit 10 at the table with no problem. The guest house is totally self-sufficient (kitchen and grill.) One drawback here-the bathroom is downstairs and the bedrooms up. In the main house the only downstairs bedroom(for people who can't handle steps) had a double which is very tight for a couple. I would definitely recommend this house for family get togethers, its central location, beautiful setting, comfortable decor, and overall setup.

Perfect Place for a Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family and my two brothers with all their kids had a great time at this location. We took advantage of the large kitchen area, the front porch, the nice backyard area to congregate all week long just catching up and playing games. This location has great access to the First Encounter beaches, incredible bike and walking trails, kayaking, and a ton of those Cap Code villages that have that New England charm. It's the best of both worlds; a nice house in a quiet location, but within 5 minutes there are all sorts of outside attractions for the entire family.

Unforgettable family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We recently celebrated my uncle's 80th birthday in Cape Cod. We chose to stay in this large farmhouse for 4 nights/5 days in late October.

There were 10 of us very comfortably settled into the main and guest houses; the other dozen stayed at the B&B next door.

This sweet location was ideal for our happy reunion as attendants came from as far as Sweden (they were favorably impressed!). This quaint farmhouse has a long and spacious kitchen counter, perfect for lunch and dinner buffets, as well as a generous dining table with chairs a-plenty and a "double-wide "wooden bench!

The house is well-appointed and the walls are lined with historical photos from the past century of the owner's family. There is an adorable little recreation room where you can borrow books, games and DVDs when not at the beach, in town or strolling in the quiet tree-lined neighborhood. Just reading in the various sitting areas was enjoyable and peaceful. i hope to return and would definitely recommend to anyone for a lovely get-away.
