About the property

2 Bedroom Nest Perfect For The Little Private Getaway You've Been Waiting For.

Cute! Little 2 bedroom cottage sits directly behind Frederick William house and on shining sea bike way, close to beach, pond, shops, and across the street from a great local restaurant. Vineyard goers, walking distance from the steamship authority. Never pay to park to visit the islands. Perfect location!

This adorable little cottage is nestled right behind the Main House on this lovely estate giving you maximum privacy!! Falmouth's Historic Village Green is just minutes away, as well as Highfiled Hall and Katherine Lee Bates birth home (author of America the Beautiful). Whale watch tours, dinner cruises, and fishing charters can be had right from our very own Falmouth Harbor. And if you love antiques, be sure to take in some of the local antique shops and summer events.

Festivals and different special town attractions are scheduled throughout the year, so if you are looking for a specific experience or even, just call to find out more. There is always something fun happening in Falmouth. Come see our Strawberry festival, or our Scallop festival, or take in the fall colors, or visit us during the winter holidays. There is really something for everyone all year round.

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 cottage 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 cottage 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!

great stay in a lovely cape cod cottage

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Jeanette's cape cod cottage with a group of 4 in connection with the graduation of my son from a local high school and had a wonderful time. The cottage is very comfortable and well equipped and nicely decorated. Great that you can walk across the street for a fab breakfast/brunch at the "Crab Apple". The kitchen has many essential provided and we were able to make coffee first thing in the morning. Best part is the huge back yard with a lovely shaded sitting area and a fire pit. We made good use of the bikes and rode the bike trail all the way to Woods Hole (5 miles)...FAB visit all around and Jeannette is very punctual, professional and accommodating!

great location and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

This property is right on the bike path that takes you to Woods Hole. The house is nicely maintained, beds are very comfortable, one can easily sleep on the sofa or extra bed in the living room. The bathroom is spacious and the place is clean.

Outside there is a cute gift shop and a very nice and relaxing garden.

We loved staying here and hope to return one day.

Perfect weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing weekend. We were kinda bummed because it rained pretty much half of our stay there but Jeanette is such a great host, very welcoming, accomodating and knows the area very well. The restaurants she recommended we're outstanding. The pouring rain did not stop us from hitting the town, explore & enjoy the place. The cottage is cozy and we'd love to come back in the summertime.

A sweet gettaway in a fantastic location!

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased with this cabin for our week long stay in Falmouth. The access to downtown Falmouth, Woodshole and the bike trail can NOT be beat. Jeannette is so sweet and helpful. The cabin was the perfect size for our family and we loved having a full kitchen. We were missing some items, like bowls and soap in the bathroom and it wasn't 100% toddler friendly for a busy toddler who likes opening drawers and cabinets. Overall a comfortable and happy cabin to stay in for a trip to a gorgeous area!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to review. It pains me when a visitor leaves feeling that we did not reach 100% during your stay. If you had brought the soap or toilet paper to my attention during your stay, I could have made it right for you. I am on site, and so easily accessible, even a text letting me know that you needed something would have been so nice. Bringing up short comings after check out makes it impossible to deliver the customer service each and every visitor deserves. Thank you for staying with us and I hope we see you in the future. Sincerely, Jeanette R
