This 18th century, antique, half cape underwent a huge transformation. The owners are antiques dealers and have added 2000 square feet to this 1000-square-foot half-cape. These are long time residents of the area who are willing to share their cherished home for the summer. Furnished eclectically with antiques, collectibles, and fine art.

The addition has been hand made from a dated 1800 barn from New Hampshire. These hand-hewed, exposed beams have been reconstructed to make it difficult to see where the old house ends and the new begins.

Here are the amenities:

* Four huge bedrooms, all with high ceilings and paddle fans, cable , and telephone hookup. The bed configurations are: Two bedrooms have 2 twin beds, one has a queen and the other has a double with a pull out single sofa.

* Three full baths, one with whirlpool, steam, and eight-spray shower, one has a washer/dryer, outdoor shower and antique claw foot tub, fun for all!!

* Large, sunny sitting room on the second floor

Amazing House Close to Skaket Beach ~ what more could you want ??

  • 5 of 5

This house is the most awesome place we have ever stayed at Cape Cod (and we've been going there over 25 years!). The house is very charming, spacious and ideal for a family! We had 8 people and there was so much room for all of us to have our own space. The kitchen is filled with every cooking utensil you could ever imagine. Bill was very nice and helpful but not intrusive. The house is the perfect distance from Skaket Beach. There is nothing bad at all that I can even say about the property. We all just loved it!!!!!

We had a wonderful time, the house is really beautiful, and it is so close to the beach. Definitely recommend this property and we will probably rent next year too!

Where do you live?

3rd year in a row

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed here 3 years in a row. We love the size and layout of the house. There are many bathrooms and all amenities one can need. Our privacy is always respected by the owners. My greatest experiences are often located in the kitchen, not just a warm,welcoming space, but the stove is to die for.

Best vacation

  • 5 of 5

This has to be the best house we've rented on the Cape. There was plenty of room in the house for six kids under 10 and 8 adults. We were not on top of each other. And having three beautiful bathrooms really was a plus. The kitchen was huge and had just about anything you could ever want in a kitchen. When we arrived we found the house to be very clean. (We left it that way too).

The location was fantastic. Just a short walk to the best beach on the Cape (in our opinion). There was not a rock in the refreshingly warm water for miles. We found the owner to be a very pleasant man. He even helped us unload our car when we arrived. We would definitely recommend this house to our family and friends. We're hoping to rent it again next year as a matter of fact.
