Property description

Come experience a truly unique Cape Cod vacation in this quaint, comfortable, newly renovated 2 bedroom, 2 bath, Chalet style “A-Frame” home on the waterfront of Uncle Harveys Pond. Located at the end of a quiet, secluded cul-de-sac in the exclusive Barley Neck section of East Orleans lays this tranquil, private oasis with panoramic waterfront views. Privacy and solitude invites quiet reading on the deck or a game of croquet or bocce in the yard. A bird watchers paradise awaits you as you sip your morning coffee on the deck overlooking the pond. Bring your canoes, kayaks, stand up paddle-boards or rent nearby to enjoy the full beauty of this exquisite location. Enjoy an evening around the fire pit while star gazing or meteor shower watching! Take a five minute walk to Meetinghouse Pond where you can launch your boat and cruise “The River” out to Pleasant Bay. Take a local seal watching cruise or just relax and enjoy the spectacular sunset. Less than a mile takes you to East Orleans Village where you can enjoy homemade ice cream at the Sundae School, Pizza at Zia’s, or dinner at the Nauset Beach Club and live evening entertainment at Joe’s Bar and Grill. Pick up your fresh fish and fine butcher meats for grilling at Nauset Farms. Drive or bike less than 2 miles to enjoy the glorious surf and renowned beach at the world famous Nauset Beach, a part of the Cape Cod National Seashore. Enjoy a bike ride on the Cape Cod Bike Trail with its expansive 20 miles of salt marsh, cranberry bogs and ponds. Stroll downtown Orleans to enjoy quaint shops and eateries. Orleans is home to the Cape Cod Baseball league Firebirds team where families bring their chairs and blankets under the lights to enjoy an evening of old fashioned baseball (wood bats!) featuring the finest collegiate ballplayers. Orleans is also home to the Academy of Performing Arts, live theater with its’ own resident company. Orleans is truly a vacation destination offering something for everyone to enjoy!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My love for the Cape began at 5 years old when my parents took us camping in a small tent in Nickerson State Park. Progressing from camping to renting to owning property in Orleans, vacationing on the Cape became our annual family ritual… never to be missed! I am excited to have just spent my 50th consecutive summer on the Cape and grow more in love with it with each year! My husband and 3 grown children have caught the Cape fever as well! They never miss an opportunity to cross the canal for a “Cape Escape”. Whether it is boating, biking, lobster fishing, surfing, or reading a book on the beach….. they find endless possibilities for relaxation. The past few years, I have spent the entire summer helping to manage my parents’ rental property in Orleans. I know how precious a long awaited family vacation is. I take pride in striving to treat all our renters as invited guests to meet or exceed their expectations as they arrive to a clean, comfortable, inviting home. As the saying goes… “If you once get the sand of the Cape in your shoes.. you will always return.”

Why the Owner Chose Orleans:
It was love at first sight!.... My husband and I were excited to have purchased our own Cape property in August, 2012 as a “diamond in the rough”. Looking beyond the overgrown trees and a long list of needed renovations and improvements, we set out to develop our own punch list to transform this unique house and property into our dream vacation home. In renovating and decorating this house, we carefully planned our improvements with the goal of maintaining the original style and broad appeal of the iconic A-Frame vacation style home popularized in the 60’s. The distinctive A-Frame style surged in popularity in the post WW II era as a modern, stylish, architectural and cultural phenomenon that symbolized relaxation and enjoyment of the “Good Life”. We welcome you as our guests!

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Close proximity to everything - - yet incredibly secluded and quiet. Uncle Harveys Pond is literally steps from your front door. The dead end location provides for no traffic except for an occasional visitor to view the pond from the street. Across the street is a 7 acre tract of wooded land dedicated to the Orleans Conservation Trust. It is truly a very special place.
