Orleans house description

This newly renovated home (inside and outside) is spotlessly clean and has four wonderful air conditioned bedrooms all with cable flat screen TV's, a large air conditioned sunken living room (everyone in your group must be able to take two steps down into the living room) with a 47' HDTV, DVD player, a chess table, and a very large inventory of movies (DVD and VHS).

Flax Pond in Nickerson State Park (great for swimming or fishing) is 15-20 min. walk down a quiet dirt road. In garage you will find 8 beach chairs, 4 beach umbrellas, 2 beach carts, and coolers. Our house is close to both bay and ocean side beaches and many excellent restaurants. Tents, smoking, fires, and pets are not permitted on the property.

Beaches and other great things to do in Brewster : If you love the beach, you'll love Brewster! Five of the most picturesque beaches on Cape Cod Bay are in Brewster - Crosby Landing, Ellis Landing, Breakwater Beach, Robbins Hill Beach, and Paines Creek Beach. There are also freshwater beaches on Long Pond, Sheeps Pond, Upper Mill Pond, Cliff Pond and Flax Pond. Nature lovers revel in Brewster. A third of the town of Brewster has been reserved for conservation land, open space and recreation. Enjoy Nickerson State Park. Visit the Museum of Natural History, then walk one of the nature trails behind the museum out to the bay. Hike, canoe or picnic in the Punkhorn Parklands. For golfers, there's the public 36-hole Captains Golf Course, and Ocean Edge Resort & Golf Club. Plus there are quaint shops, great restaurants, live theater, craft fairs and plenty of fun things for the kids. Fishermen can head out on charter fishing boats in Cape Cod Bay, or one of the stocked freshwater ponds in town: Long Pond, Sheep Pond, Cliff Pond,

Additional outside seating: We recently purchased a wooden 2-person glider and two rocking chairs for the front yard patio and a 2-person Adirondack settee with middle table for the backyard garden.

Note: Our home is located on the edge of Nickerson State Park and our lovely and private backyard is bordered by woods. Homes in this type of location are nearly impossible to keep totally insect free. Please do not be surprised by the occasional sighting of an ant, a spider, or even the ugly wood 'roach'. The latter insect is attracted by house lights like moths and may fly into the house after dusk if outside lights are on and doors near the lights are opened. They are very similar in appearance to but they are not the typical American cockroach. They do not survive or breed indoors. They are just a nuisance, they pose absolutely no health risk and should just be caught and thrown in the trash.

Brewster is a wonderful town!: Our house is located in the back of the upscale Robinwood neighborhood in Brewster, Massachusetts. Our backyard has lovely gardens and is very private. There is a very small pond in our neighborhood just a few minute walk from the house if you enjoy freshwater swimming. A larger pond, Flax Pond, is a quiet 15-20 minute walk from the house (through the woods behind our backyard you can access a dirt road that goes into the back of Nickerson State Park). We are a 5 minute drive to beautiful Bayside beaches and ten minute (or less) drive to ocean beaches including Nauset beach. Brewster is a beautiful town with great restaurants, beautiful parks, a bike path, a very well stocked library (everyone is welcome to take out books and movies), live theater, and many fine shops. You will not regret your decision to stay in Brewster and the 'House on Holly'! Please call!
