Still one of the prettest spots on the Cape
"I had stayed here about a year ago and thought this was a rare kind of paradise then,but since then they have added some really cute updates to the house including a whole new huge sunny bedroom which we stayed in . Views,sunsets and birds were amazing. We had some trouble with the front door lock which they fixed within a hour,very friendly workman with some interesting Cape -yarns to spin.The estate is so secure feeling that I didn't even think you needed to lock the front door ,but my mother insisted.
Floors and everything looked really sparkly and clean,and kitchen was well equipped .Beds were all very comfortable and new feeling,but the privacy and tranquility here beats any medication you could ever take; which is why I'll be back for another retreat and tell my friends about how nice it is to have breakfast in that wonderful Gazebo or Pergola out in the orchard.We saw beautiful red foxes and deer ,besides more birds then any of us could identify.They said there was a Otter out back in the river but we weren't lucky enough to spot it. It was a fabulous ,restful,vacation ,who could not love those endlessly changing views in a well designed house.

"Our family of four plus a rotating assortment of friends and other family, LOVED staying at this house, it was perfect in every way. The main house itself was so charming and accommodating and the guesthouse was absolutely lovely for our guests. We also played tennis every day - a true treat! We fell in love with Crystal Lake, so great for kids and SO CLOSE.
It's centrally located in Orleans, only a few minutes from Nauset and Skaket Beaches. Pilgrim Lake is also a great place to take little kids, it has a small beach and a great swimming area. We took full advantage of the Cape Bike Trail, nightly trips to Sundae School and saw a children's play at the local theatre. We love this area so much because there is never a shortage of things to do when you're all beached-out.
We are already looking forward to another stay next summer!"

"We again rented the Boat House for 2 weeks starting on 9/6/14. The house is great for adults and the deck was great for our Wine 30 every night. What a view of the Sail boats on the pound. We took walks each morning and enjoyed the peace and quit.
Hope to be back again

"This home was perfect for our active family of 5 plus our golden retriever. It was clean and nicely furnished but not so dear that we had to worry about the dog or kids. Grocery stores nearby made it just like home. From the house you can walk to Rock harbor and the little wharf and beach there. Local people said they allow dogs there after 4pm so we went with that. Because of the hurricane, fireworks were delayed so we hot to see those our week as well. Skaket and Nauset are short drives, a bike trail with rental shops is also very near in the town. The kids keep asking if we can go back so it was a hit. Miriam and Lou have a TV, DVD, VCR and there is WiFi. There are board games in a cabinet. The backyard is big and perfect for throwing ball around while something is grilling up. The house is one level there are 2 low wooden steps to get in. So if mobility is an issue for you or a pet, don't worry! I was looking for a low key seaside vacation with the kids, like I had growing up visiting my grandma on Long Island. This was very much like that. Hope to get a week again next year!"
