VRBO Bear stayed here: We found this property to be beary special Read review
Enjoy your vacation at this beautiful and serene setting, right next to the Audubon Society's Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary, north of Rt.6A in the Cummaquid area, with 2 surrounding acres of nature that attract many different types of birds, butterflies, and berries and also offers a relaxing and private setting to come home to after a day at the beach, whale watching, biking, shopping and the many other activities the area offer! This is a great home for an extended family vacation or groups of 6-7 friends for a getaway! For the summer season June-Labor Day stay for a week or more, in the off-season come for a 3-night stay or more! With the 2 gas fireplaces in this home, the Cape is a great place to visit in the Fall, Winter, and Spring too!
Spacious air conditioned home is immaculate (with a/c units in each bedroom and all living spaces), 2.5 bathrooms and a private outdoor shower on the deck, outdoor living space and a yard surrounded by acres of nature and beauty. First floor includes master bedroom with a king size bed along with a large full bath (walk-in shower), a combined living/dining area with a gas fireplace for those chilly nights to warm up next to while enjoying a glass of wine, and an open and fully-equipped kitchen with eat-at counter and 4 highback chairs, Also on first floor is a large 1/2 bath with washer and dryer and all supplies needed for laundry prep.
Walk up the stairs to another large living room with another gas fireplace, entertainment center, and desk/work area for those few times you might need to work at one. This home will make you forget about work, but there is space to get it done, just in case, with WiFi included also. Second floor also includes a large full bathroom with bathtub and shower, 2 large bedrooms with one bedroom with two twin beds, the other with a twin bed and one bunk bed with a twin on top and a double bed on the bottom. An Aerobed is available if another bed is needed. Also included is a Pack-n-Play for the little ones. Plenty of room for groups of 7-8 guests.
If you ever decide to leave the comfort of this home, you are only 1/2 mile walk from the Audubon Society's Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary with beautiful grass trails and meadows while on your way to Barnstable Harbor and the beach at the end of Bone Hill Road. Take a short ride to Millway Beach (lifeguarded) and along that road you'll find the Whale Watch excursion boat, and deep sea fishing charters and several of the finest restaurants in the area. Take a ride 10 minutes away and you'll come to the Cape Cod Mall, Hyannis and Island ferry boats to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket! Along Rt. 6A you'll find speciality shops, restaurants, general/country stores, antique shops, and so much more. And don't forget all the other Town of Barnstable fresh water and ocean beaches that the landlord beach pass gives you free access to!

This little Bear really enjoyed his trip to Barnstable and the Cape. This beautiful house is an easy drive from all of the major cities in New England, and an easy drive to the Cape Cod National Seashore and Martha’s Vineyard/Nantucket ferries. The house has a friendly feel that makes it so you cannot help but relax. It also has wonderful natural light throughout. Perfect for a family or couples, it has all the necessary amenities to make you feel at home. I thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful landscape, numerous trails within walking distance and a number of wonderful restaurants nearby.
Without all the city lights, you can enjoy the simply amazing view of a star-filled sky on a clear night. So come, relax and enjoy this beautiful Cape Cod home for yourself! You’ll be glad you did.

About the owner: I am an elementary school adminstrator and come to the Cape every vacation and as many weekends as possible; however, I invite you to share my home when I am not there myself and hope that you will enjoy it as much as I do!
Why the Owner Chose Barnstable:
My family bought our Cape home because we the love the area and want to live here someday. The home is close to Barnstable Harbor, Audubon Society Wildlife Sanctuary Sandy Neck beach, and Rt. 6A, and although close to Hyannis and all the amenities, it feels like we are far away from the hustle and bustle. Being close to the Audubon Society's Long Pasture Wildlife Sanctuary allows us a beautiful walk to the beach through the grass and meadow trails and also brings all the birds and their beauty right to our home.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The quaintness of Barnstable village and the bay side of the Cape offers 'Old Cape Cod' feel with everything from beaches to restaurants to shops to malls to whale watches, bike rides, long nature walks, to stress-relieving relaxation!
