Recent Cape Cod reviews

  • Great Cape Cod Rental

    "This was our second time staying at this vacation rental in Eastham and both times we had a wonderful experience. First, the location is great - very close to Orleans, tons of beaches and only 40 minutes from Provincetown. The house was very clean upon arrival and had all the expected amenities (full set of dishes, glasses and silverware, pots & pans, etc) - the washer and dryer are a great plus as is the outdoor shower! Overall the house is very homey and inviting and the price is great. If you are looking to book a trip with your family to the Cape, definitely consider this house!"

  • Exceeded Expectations - A Dream Vacation!

    "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!"

  • Classic Cape Cod

    "Just spent a week with 11 adults at this beautiful old home. Very classic Cape Cod on the water with incredible views from main rooms and many bedrooms. The home was apparently built in 1927 and still retains many family mementos, artwork, books, etc. These certainly add to it's charm. It is incredibly warm and inviting. There is room for everyone to be together or spread out. It is impeccably clean and certainly the best stocked VRBO we have ever stayed. It even had two huge pots to boil lobsters outdoors for our last night there - and the lobster bibs and little heated butter cups to make it perfect. What fun to sit out on the patio while the lobsters were prepared enjoying the beautiful sea view then enjoying a dinner at an incredibly large table inside with table cloth and candles. Later, we could fall asleep listening to the waves. The location is very close to Woods Hole to catch the ferry to Martha's Vinyard and easy access to the rest of the Cape. Some of our group even made a day trip to Newport Rhode Island to see the mansions. Small caveat - and not an issue for us - there is only one walk in shower (there is a tub as well) and one bedroom on the main floor. The other showers are tub showers - on the second floor and just a tub on the third floor. If someone has limited mobility, that might be a consideration. I would love the opportunity to stay at this wonderful home again. It was everything i hoped it would be and the owners were very helpful and communicated very well. We will all have many wonderful memories of our time at Olcottage."

  • Susan from DE

    "The mornings & evenings on the lake are more beautiful than photos. It's a great place if you just want to relax and do nothing, or for those who want to venture out to explore new places within a short drive, there are places to go. We recently spent a week there, had family coming in from Hawaii to attend a wedding in NYC. It was convenient, flying into Boston airport (just hour & few min away), others driving from NH, DE & MD. It was a last minute plan, however worked out really well for all. We were fortunate the dates we needed were available. The canoe and pedal boat on the lake was great for all ages. Bikes, life jackets, beach chairs, sand buckets and toys, etc. were there as well. A hidden treasure, was the beautiful little beach on the lake, only steps away through little path to left of property. The Jacuzzi on the deck was a welcome relaxation at the end of a busy day and gas grill for cooking outdoors. There are 2 fireplaces in the home, which imagine would be cozy during the late fall and winter months. If you are planning to do a lot of biking, recommend you have vehicle with bike rack. The immediate roads near house do not have shoulders on road for biking or walking, not the safest. However, there is a wonderful walking, and bike trail at the Cape Canal (6.5 miles on one side and 7 miles on other), which is only 10 minute drive from the house as need to transport the bikes. You will see locals transporting their bikes as well. Local fish market has great lobster & seafood, if prefer cooking at home. Martha's Vineyard is only short drive to a ferry and worth the trip if have not been. If your plan is to attend events and sightseeing, would recommend check online "events calendars" in the area. Boston is a great city to visit as well, lots of history and good seafood - Quincy market has plenty lobster and chowder. I have not stayed in a hotel for a vacation since 2008. Discovered the only way to vacation is staying in a vacation rental, especially if more than 2 people traveling. It's much more like being at home, yet enjoying all the amenities without the outrageous hotel prices, fees & taxes. This home on "Picture Lake" is a great getaway for families with children or just adults. The owner, Ellen was very helpful and accommodating. Our family is grateful we had the opportunity to create some wonderful memories we will cherish forever ! Thank you Ellen for sharing your "Home Away From Home" with us."
