Situated on five acres of woods, this home is quiet and secluded yet only minutes from beaches, bike path, restaurants and shops. Originally built in the 1700’s, the house has been completely restored and modernized and offers all the conveniences you need – completely supplied updated kitchen, deck and gas grill, two bathrooms, washer/dryer, high speed internet, and cable TV. The master bedroom is on the first floor and has a queen size bed. Upstairs, one bedroom has a double bed and the other has two twin beds. An extra room is small and cozy with a twin bed. The futon couch in the living room folds out to a double bed for extra guests.
Skaket Beach is only five minutes away where you can swim, walk the sand flats at low tide, or play in the tidal pools (great for kids). For ocean surf and sand, you are a 15 minute drive from Nauset Beach where you can swim, surf, and soak up the sun. If you prefer fresh water swimming several pond beaches are all within a ten-minute drive. The long driveway connects directly to the Cape Cod Rail Trail bike path.
This is an ideal location for sharing good times, having summer adventures, and relaxing together with family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Orleans: The Sea Captain's house has been in my family for 75 years. I first summered here as a child in the 1950's, and have wonderful memories of sailing, swimming, and beach picnics with my family. Orleans is centrally located at the 'elbow' of the Cape, a half hour from Provincetown and a half hour from Barnstable. The house itself is within one mile of both beach and town, yet offers a uniquely private get-away. The location is ideal and convenient for whatever activities you prefer.
The Unique Benefits at this House: One of my favorite parts of the day is stepping out onto the deck in the early morning and being greeted by birdsong, sunshine, and trees all around. Anytime you want to be on the water, it takes only 5 or 10 minutes to get to a variety of different beaches and boating areas. Although the property is convenient to shopping, when you are at the house it feels like being in a remote location.
