About the area

East Orleans village is a peninsula with the Atlantic Ocean and ocean coves on three sides. On many nights you can hear the ocean waves crashing at Nauset. You can take walks in many directions taking you to hidden coves or public boat launches or to clam digging areas or to beautiful Nauset Beach. Take your bike (or rent one) and go on the Cape Cod Bike Trail. Take your kayak (or rent one) and go exploring on a nearby pond or saltwater march. Take your camera and take pictures of many types of birds IN THE BACKYARD! Skaket Beach is the best salt water beach for young kids anywhere. At low tide the water goes out a quarter mile leaving many tidal pools and streams for kids to play in and lots of beach space for adults to escape to. Both Orleans beaches have lifeguards, outdoor showers, restrooms and snack bars. Enjoy a delightful evening theater experience at the Orleans Playhouse just down the street. After dinner, go have an ice cream at the nearby Sundae School and take it with you to the Orleans Cardinal's Cape Cod League baseball game 2 miles away (mid June to mid August). You'll think you've entered into a Norman Rockwell painting from 50 years ago. Or after dinner, go to the Chocolate Sparrow for your favorite coffee drink and a decadent dessert then go down to Skaket Beach and watch a beautiful sunset over Cape Cod Bay.

“Another great stay”

Reviewed 19 Jun 2015

This was our fifth year in a row and it was still wonderful. The proximity to the beach is great and my five year old loves the deck and the yard. The house is always clean and comfortable. The local restaurants are all good and the people you meet are even better. The Wellfleet drive-in is close and provides an experience not found much anymore. My son and I look forward to next year.

“Great escape!”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2014

A secluded ideal vacation location. Close to the beach and all Orleans has to offer, yet a private setting with amenities to please. Well built home that offers an open floor plan and plenty of space to spread out.

“An amazing property to stay at!”

Reviewed 1 Nov 2012

We stayed at this cottage the week of October 20-27. It's an amazing property. It's very close to Nauset Beach, and very private. The light just streams into the cottage, it's very homey with a nice spacious layout. You will not be tripping over other people here. On warms days you can just sit outside in the very private yard. If you want a relaxing getaway to the cape this house is perfect.

“Orleans Vacation”

Reviewed 15 Jul 2012

We had an absolute wonderful time in this beautiful home. From the moment we took our first steps into the house, to the time we closed the door behind us upon leaving, the home met all our expectations. It was clean, bright and airy. Everything we had needed during our stay was readily available. We took advantage of all the amenities. Our week was filled with just perfect weather. We thoroughly enjoyed all the baseball games, craft fairs, concerts and shows the area had to offer. Nauset beach was just a stone's throw from the house which really had it's benefits. We are already looking forward to another Cape Cod vacation in the near future. Hopefully this home will be available for our next stay on the Cape.

“What an amazing vacation!”

Reviewed 13 Jun 2011

The house was in great shape when we arrived for our week-long stay and we could not be happier with our experience there. The fully stocked kitchen with all the necessary household supplies was much appreciated and the house itself was perfect for our group of 6. We loved the backyard with hammock, deck, and grill. Location was another huge plus for us as the house (privately nestled in its own tree-lined lot) is conveniently close to Nauset and Skaket Beaches, grocery stores, and amazing restaurants. We were able to make the short trip to Provincetown twice during the cloudier days and otherwise enjoyed some amazing beach days. We even saw 2 whales and dozens of seals off the shore of Nauset Beach. The owner has been quite attentive and organized, which I certainly appreciate. We sincerely hope to be able to visit this lovely home again soon!

“Cape Cod Gem”

Reviewed 14 Jun 2010

This property has an outstanding Cape location. Very private and pristine with all the amenities you could want. A beautiful back deck and spacious backyard allow you to enjoy the outdoors without going to the beach. Nonetheless, the beach is within easy walking distance and is itself very beautiful. You can walk the beach for 14 miles I understand. If you prefer the bayside, it is a short 3 mile drive. The bikepath at Orleans is 2 miles away with plenty of free parking. The restaurants in the area are exceptional as well. I would recommend Joe's on Beach Road highly. The YardArm is good as well. I understand that the Saltwater Grill is also excellent and will try it next time. For breakfast, try the Hole in One. If you can't have a relaxing, enjoyable time here, it is your own fault! I can't wait to go back.

“Home away from home!”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2009

We spend one marvelous week at this Cape home. It has everything you could wish for in comfort, convenience and solitude. The home is in a perfect location to travel in any direction for entertainment, beaches, shopping, exploring, hiking, bike riding or just staying home and relaxing on the deck and enjoying the flowers and nature. We just loved it and would have stayed forever.

“Great House”

Reviewed 29 Sep 2009

We had a family reunion at this beautiful house in Orleans. The house has everything you could want, very clean and modern. Close to the beach and central to everything on the cape. I highly recommend staying here.

“spacious”

Reviewed 30 Jun 2009

This house was awesome to rent. It may be a little far from the beach but it was totally worth it. The rooms are perfect, the living area is spread out and the kitchen is just the right size. One small downfall is that there is no back yard. The liquor store is about 150 feet from the house and there is extra parking available.

“Pleasantly Surprised!”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2009

The home is great. Very nice and quite spacious. How surprised to find just how private it is. With all of the leaves on the trees, you can see no other houses even though they are near by. The beach is about 1 mile away, but that is ok, because it is a short drive away, and you have a lovely home to return to for a quite evening to relax. My husband, son, daughter and myself really did enjoy our stay. We also were close enough to the other areas we wanted to visit on our vacation. If only time could have gone by just a little slower. We really did hate to leave such a lovely home so soon. It really is a home away from home.
