Falmouth house description

Only one September week remains!

Please note that this VRBO listing is the only legitimate listing of this property.

Enjoy Cape Cod the way it was experienced in yesteryear - peaceful, relaxing, and full of natural beauty. This spacious and comfortable home has been in our family since 1927. It is a truly unique property with lots of character. Situated on Vineyard Sound with unbelievable views of Martha’s Vineyard, Nobska Lighthouse, and Falmouth Heights, our home has a private sandy beach and the summer swimming is without equal.

The house is bordered on one side by the ocean and on the other by a private dirt road that runs parallel to the readily accessible Shining Sea Bikeway. It’s about 2.5 miles to downtown Falmouth, and a one mile leisurely stroll down the bike path and along Little Harbor to downtown Woods Hole: still franchise-free with quaint buildings, coffee shops, the ferry to Martha's Vineyard, an aquarium and information centers for a scientific community hosting the Marine Biological Laboratories and the Oceanographic Institution.

Enjoy a week of sunbathing, swimming, sailing, bicycling, fishing, walking and exploring Cape Cod from this private and beautiful spot. The way Cape Cod used to be.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1927

                          About the owner: Our childhood home is a central place for family and friends to come together. We are delighted to share the Cape Cod experience with visitors by opening our home as a summer rental.

                          Why the Owner Chose Falmouth:
                          This home that we call 'Olcottage' has held a special place in our family's hearts since our grandparents built it in 1927. Many people know Olcottage as a gathering place for friends and family to enjoy the company of others in a restful environment.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          The beach and ocean are only steps away from this comfortable and spacious home!
