About Lorrie Doyle

In 2013 I was fortunate enough to find this most wonderful house nestled behind two pine trees, waiting for its new owner. It was originally the game keeper's house of the Nickerson Estate and has a wonderful history both inside and out. I renovated the house with the intention of it being welcoming to all. Some say when they enter, that it has the feeling of a big hug. Some just appreciate the calmness inside.

The grounds have been landscaped over the past 80 years to reveal a natural setting with a yard that stretches to the far woods. From those woods you can see into Nickerson Park. The Koi Pond also has been on the property many years. It is a delight to watch the fish circle and swim as they wait for a possible snack. Birds abound as well.

For me, this house, reflects all that I feel is important to me as the steward of this historic home. It brings me joy to be there and reminds me of the beauty of natural surroundings and a house whose history continues on.

Lorrie Doyle purchased this house in 2013

Why Lorrie Doyle chose Cape Cod

Privacy abounds inside and out at this Brewster home. Plantings sited to please the eye, and the senses throughout the seasons. Inside, the main bedroom has 1/2 bath en suite, two additional full baths are located at opposite ends of the house for convenience. New interior has been decorated with family favorites and newly acquired goodies. All bedding and linens are new.

What makes this house unique

Large, private, lushly landscaped yard, koi pond, artist's retreat - a small rustic cabin removed from the main house for playing or painting, perhaps some yoga. Play loft or hideout for reading, games, puzzles, private time. Ecologically conscious renovation of all systems assures allergen free atmosphere for peace and quiet. Dogs under 135 lbs, over 2 years old and well-mannered are welcome. Two maximum. Please, no cats. Extensive decking and screened-in porch. Walk to Nickerson Park or Linnell Landing beach. Our many freshwater ponds beckon.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Many thanks...

Charming Property Near Beach

  • 5 of 5

Two couples enjoyed this clean, comfortable house with large deck. More than ample bathrooms, but main bedroom only has a half bath. Everything you need is provided in good working order including beach chairs, umbrella and cooler on wheels! Great book selection in cozy reading nook. Besides the lovely fish, we saw lots of birds, rabbits and even a couple of coyotes in the expansive private yard. So great to have a porch, especially on a rainy day.

Twenty minute walk to beach, but since we take a lot of gear, we chose the convenient five minute drive.

Lastly, my tall husband said to mention that if you're over 6'5, you might need to duck in a few places under the original 1910 beams, although we don't know their exact height.

We hope to be returning next year.

The perfect location

Once again we enjoyed a wonderful stay at the house on Koi pond. It is the perfect location for our active family and near to the rail trail,Nickerson state park and bay beaches.

The house is always clean and welcoming and we always enjoy seeing our delightful host,Lorrie!
