About the owner: Our family moved to the Cape in the early sixties when my parents purchased an empty property in Orleans. That property became Tree's Place, one of the premiere gift shops/art galleries on the Cape. The house that we now offer for rental was our family home until recently. It began as two camp cabins and has experienced a number of renovations over the years. We love the house and spend as much time as we can there.
Why the Owner Chose Orleans: We can't imagine a better place to vacation than our house. It is a peaceful retreat. It's arms are large enough to embrace multiple families without crowding. We have left evidence of our parents' very creative lives throughout the house. Our mother's paintings and prints and shelves with our father's books and short stories are available for all to appreciate.
The Unique Benefits at this House: When we are at the house, it feels like we are completely in nature. Geese honking down the river, boats quietly skimming by and the lovely scents of trees in bloom... This is a unique older piece of Cape Cod and we love hearing how others truly appreciate its special quality.
