After a week in this house, you will never want to go back to reality - but at least when you go back you will be refreshed and come away with incredible memories! This spacious Cape Cod cottage is located on a quiet street in a lovely neighborhood in Orleans, Massachusetts, less than 5 minutes away from every possible activity you could ask for - the beach, the bay, ponds, restaurants, shopping and so much more! This 5 bedroom home can comfortably accommodate 10 people and is completely equipped for a summer vacation, with beach chairs, boogie boards, toys, umbrellas, as well as all the amenities of a home for cooking meals, bbqing, lobster bakes and entertaining inside and out. One of the best features of the house is the outdoor areas - you are guaranteed to enjoy the beautiful yard and inviting back deck. There is a main patio deck area, as well as a newly added shaded seating area in the backyard.
The location absolutely can't be beat, it sits on a quiet and quaint road, but is so close to everything. It's a 5 minute drive to one of the best beaches in the country, Nauset Beach, and it's just a 5 minute drive to Cape Cod bay with it's own beaches and harbor. It's an easy 5 minute walk or bike ride to a small boat landing looking out to Orleans Town Cove. This area is really fun for looking for shells and letting children explore. The house has an open floor plan with a large family room adjacent to the kitchen and a front sitting room. There is a master bedroom on the first floor with a king bed and it's own bathroom. There is another bedroom on the first floor with an adjacent bathroom. Upstairs, there are 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom. One bedroom has a queen bed, a trundle bed in another room, and one additional room with a twin bed. The upstairs is perfect for small children! And don't forget to enjoy the outdoor shower - you can't have a true Cape vacation without it. The outside of the house is just as comfortable as the inside - with 2 seating areas and a large yard in the front and back. And this home is a gardener's dream - with over 25 rose and hydrangea bushes, you will feel like you're in heaven.

Year Purchased: 1985
About the owner: We had spent several summers vacationing on Cape Cod since 1980 with our small children, but in 1985 we decided we wanted to buy a home for our family to enjoy for our future. We have spent the last 28 years enjoying this amazing home. There is something absolutely magical about this home and the town of Orleans. It's a place to make memories with your family, relax and unwind and have an incredible time!
Why the Owner Chose Orleans: We bought this particular home because of the perfect location. At the time, we had young kids and knew we wanted to have a quiet road for them to ride their bikes and play with their friends in the front yard. We can bike to Nauset Beach and downtown Orleans yet we are far enough away from the summer tourists to be able to really relax.
