Overview

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday estate in Falmouth - Frederick William House

Estate Sleeps 10

This centrally located home is ideal for a luxurious memorable vacation.

The Frederick William House of Falmouth is the main house on the estate. A small guest cottage also sits on property but is not featured in this listing. It sleeps 6, if your party size is over 10, you may also rent the cottage. Call to check availability. The estate is located directly on the Shining Sea Bike Path between Sippewissett and Falmouth Village, truly a bicyclists paradise and a stones throw away from the Steamship Authority. Bikes are available for your convenience. Stay in this beautifully decorated home and enjoy your time away in luxury. Each fabulously furnished bedroom has it's own private bath. A large gas fireplace heats the master bedroom on cold winter nights, and a wood burning fireplace adorns the common area. The cozy living room is close to a full modern kitchen with a joining dinning room. Barbeque on the slate patio off the kitchen with a gas grill for all your summer cookouts after a great day at the beach. Walk to the fresh water Pond, Grews Pond, across the street with a lovely beach and playground. The property is close to Spohr Gardens famous for their breathtaking Daffodil Days. Whale watching tours, restaurants, pubs, trails in the woods, biking, hiking, skating, boating, and more are all walking distance.

About Jeanette Robinson /Proprietor

I grew up in Menlo Park California, my Father was a native Cape Codder and my mother was a native Californian. I suppose my mother's influence kept my Father in California, but he always entertained the notion of moving back to Falmouth. The stretch of land Frederick William House sits on has been in my family for nearly a century, strawberry fields encompassed the stretch, and the 4 houses to the left and the right all belonged to long gone relatives. One by one the cousins, aunts and uncles sold, but when I discovered that 594 Palmer belonged to me after my last living relative on Cape Cod passed away, I felt impelled to keep the last of the homes and share this magical place with you.

Jeanette Robinson /Proprietor purchased this estate in 2001

Why Jeanette Robinson /Proprietor chose Cape Cod

Frederick William House has been in my family for nearly a century. We enjoy sharing this magical spot with others. The best memories are made with family.

What makes this estate unique

If you want to 'get there' Frederick William House' is located in an deal spot for the active vacationer who wants to antique downtown, bike, or take in our picturesque landscapes. Easy drives to historic points of interest, walk to breakfast across the street to enjoy the best Irish Eggs Benedict you have ever had. Location, location, location. Come visit the birthplace of 'America the Beautiful' written by Katherine Lee Bates, and visit her child hood home. Take a trolly tour, see Nobska Light House in Woods Hole, still occupied and operated by the Coast Guard Chief. Take in every season, the colors of fall, the impressive frozen ponds in winter, the yellow bursts of color in spring, and the bluest, quiet lapping waves in summer. Cook out, enjoy your family, ferry to the islands, there is so much to do and see here!

Excellent Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home. We had a family vacation and this historic and updated large house accommodated our 9 family members very comfortably. The location is awesome, right on the bike path making it easy to take the bikes to downtown Falmouth, Woods Hole or to the Martha's Vineyard ferry. Jeanette, who manages the property, was super attentive to all our needs which was really nice. We would stay here again!

Great location, wonderful proprietor, beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

We had 9 people (2 families of four and a single) and there was plenty of space. Being right on the bike trail was wonderful, and there were restaurants and shops in walking distance as well. Grews Pond across the street was a pleasant and quiet place for the kids to swim. The proprietor was consistently available to answer any questions, although few arose! Highly recommended.

There are many nice things to say about the Frederick William House, but top mention must go to its location on the bike path (bikes provided) with a lovely park (playground and fresh water swimming) right across the street. We could bike to beaches, among other attractions, and the beach parking passes were a great bonus when we drove. Jeanette is readily available and eager to accommodate. She actually ran right out to buy a shower chair for my father-in-law on our arrival! As some have mentioned, it is on quite a busy road. In the front bedrooms we could hear some traffic, but not disturbingly so; the back bedrooms were completely quiet. No issues with wifi or cell service during our stay. All in all, an excellent vacation.

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

Hi Jeanette.. once again the whole family had a great time. The house, as in the past was clean and orderly and with your responsiveness to our needs, easily accommodated all of us.

Quick access to the bike path, local beaches and village along with the facility to grill outside on the patio makes staying at your home a real pleasure. These things taken together, really serve to relieve the stress of managing the logistics of coordinating daily plans for a group of 9 (including the grandchildren). Thanks again for your hospitality, we will be in touch to schedule our stay for next year !

ps;

Jeanette, I wrote the review above 2 years ago...and all of it is still true !! . Your attention to detail and continued care of the property really sets this place apart from all others. Thanks again.

Regards,

Guy and Donna C

Wonderful family home!

  • 4 of 5

Two families, 4 adults and 5 children, really enjoyed staying here. We had beautifully, comfortable bedrooms, an easy to use kitchen, a grill, a fire pit; what more could you want?! The house was in a great central location to restaurants, shops and beaches. The bike trail on the property was especially great, perfect for morning walks and afternoon bike rides.

The only downside to the property is the amount of traffic that is on the road in front of it. It wasn't loud, just plenty of it. There is a wonderful swimming lake in the park across the street from the property, which would be about 10 min. walk if you could cross the street. We took the long way around and drove so we wouldn't have to risk the crossing. That being said the traffic lightens considerably in the afternoons and evenings.

If I were to come to the Cape again I would definitely see if this house was available to rent.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review Frederick William House. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. During peek season it is difficult to escape traffic downtown. We are very centrally located, and for many that is an asset. When you do come visit us again, you may enjoy the fall season more than peek season. The traffic dies down greatly, and the leaves make fall a colorful wonderland. I enjoyed accommodating you and look forward to seeing you for a future adventure. Thank you!!

What a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this property. We had 6 adults (2 couples) and 6 children ranging from 3 months to 9 years old and the fit couldn't have been better. You can tell that Jeanette put a lot of thought into what they needed to put into the house to make it comfortable for any type of group and the house has almost everything you can think of to so you don't have to bring everything you own. The place is well maintained and much more kid friendly than a typical airbnb rental.

- Each bedroom has an attached bathroom so there's no long waits to get ready in the mornings

- There are additional futons and a rollaway bed for small kids to stay in the same room with parents

- The common spaces, indoor and outdoor are great for lounging with large parties

- Plenty of parking is available

- They have kids beach toys, regular toys, a pack and play, highchairs, and booster seats for kids available, as well as on site laundry

- The beach passes are a cherry on top

Slight cons that we found

- Two of the bedrooms only have a european bath setup, with a bathtub and handheld shower attachment which makes quick showers difficult

- They could use another kids bike or 2

Overall just a wonderful setup to get maximum enjoyment out of your vacation!
