About the property

4 Bedroom, 3 Bath Home, Sleeps 8 Comfortably, Great For 2 Families.

This unique property has a lot to offer for a wonderful vacation! A major renovation was completed giving way to a totally cool place to relax in peace or to entertain family and friends. Lots of windows allow you to enjoy the water views of Henson's Cove from the living area, galley kitchen and master bedroom. Sliding glass doors open up to 2 decks. A reading loft is a delight for kids!

3 bedrooms are on the first level: the master bedroom with 3/4 bath has a king bed, the 2nd bedroom has a queen bed, and the 3rd bedroom has bunk beds - with a bottom double bed and top twin bed. Downstairs we have a suite which features a queen bed, den area with TV, full bath and laundry. Sliding glass doors open up to a patio overlooking the cove.

Throughout the house you'll love the expert craftsmanship and nautical feel!

Outdoor spaces are plentiful here! Enjoy the quiet of the frog pond or the separate deck at the edge of the cove. Our outdoor 'studio' provides the voracious reader with a private get-away. After a long day at the beach, enjoy the outdoor shower or a cool swim at nearby Crystal Lake.

In the evening, listen to the roar of the Atlantic from the deck while getting a glimpse of light from Nauset Lighthouse.

Situated close to Kent's Point Conservation Area and overlooking Henson's Cove, you will experience a part of Cape Cod's nature at its finest. This is a place your family will remember for years to come!

About Owner/Property Manager

We are Massachusetts natives who grew up vacationing on the Cape. New Hampshire is our year round residence now, though we get to the Cape every chance we get. We rented our previous Cape home for 6 years, resulting in a very happy clientele (testimonials available). In the summer we enjoy long days on Nauset Beach and boating along The River. We have many favorite places to go to share with you!

Owner/Property Manager purchased this house in 2012

Why Owner/Property Manager chose Orleans

It was love at first sight when we saw this property. With not much of a street view, we were delighted when we rounded the corner of the house and saw the water view and L-shaped layout of the house. The recent renovation brought this former artist's guest house to life, with a fun, nautical feel. Friends and family describe it as 'very cool.' We love it, and we're sure you will, too.

Exceptional Rental

  • 5 of 5

We have been renting in East Orleans for the past 12 years (for anyone reading this who is still deciding on location, Orleans just can't be beat. Really the best area of the Cape). This is one of the nicest homes we have rented. Very well laid out and well appointed. Construction and finishes are of high quality and show very little wear or aging. Lots of great spaces. The kids (ages 11 and 8) really enjoyed having the loft as a space that was there own. Downstairs area was great as well. Enjoyed the view and watching the boats come and go from Meeting House Pond. Will certainly return.

Perfect vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

A spacious, comfortable and well-appointed home! We enjoyed our stay and would definitely return. The views are beautiful and the location is perfect. We enjoyed daily walks to Crystal Lake and spent many days at Nauset beach - a short drive away. Highly recommend.

Excellent rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house in a perfect location. It is quiet and peaceful, and also close to shopping, restaurants, beaches and ponds. Crystal lake is within walking distance. The grounds are nicely kept, and the view of marsh and cove could not be more lovely. The living area is beautifully decorated and furnished, and conducive to family activities. The bedrooms are well separated from the living area, and the downstairs "suite" is a peaceful bonus. You can't go wrong with this house.

Another great week on the Cape

  • 5 of 5

We had rented this house two years ago, and returned this year with the other side of the family. The house was just as great as before, and we enjoyed being close to good restaurants as well as to supermarkets, with a good grill and everything we needed to have dinners at the house.

This time around, we had a toddler along, and the basement living space was ideal for a quiet place when needed, and to give her the room she needed to run around when quiet _wasn't_ needed. :) We had everything we required on hand, and had a great time. Thanks again for a great place to anchor even more family memories.

Beautiful Beach House

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this fabulous house last July. It was perfect and by far the best house we have ever rented! Great location, water views, plenty of space for our large family? We traveled with our adult children,spouses and our granddaughter. We loved cooking in the well appointed kitchen and eating on the deck! The house was spotless and decorated beautifully. Our only regret is that we aren't able to return this year!! But hope to return some day!!
