About Hari Rai
About FIVE TREES CAPE COD In 2015, after twelve years Suzy Kline retired from the summer rental business. She moved around the corner and sold Five Trees to Hari Rai and his wife Sabina. Hari came here from Nepal in 2006, worked as a Sous Chef at Scargo Café, Dennis, and at Five Trees helping to maintain the property and growing to love it. His wife Sabina and two children followed him to the Cape a few years later. He now owns Public Cafe http://www.publiccafecapecod.com/ in Chatham. They are going keep up the Five Trees tradition of pretty, comfortable, reasonably priced vacation homes that have been so popular. Pets are still welcome and the grand and glorious gardens and woods will still be maintained for your pleasure. Hari is looking forward to renewing old acquaintances and meeting new guests as they come to enjoy their time on Old Cape Cod or as we call it, “PARADISE”.
Hari Rai purchased this Cottage in 2017
What makes this Cottage unique
Location, Location, Location! Situated mid-Cape on the quiet north shore, Five Trees is on the Town line of Barnstable & Yarmouth port on Old Kings Highway (Main St.), up on a hill away from the road.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Cute cottage, gorgeous yard!
The cottage is very nice and equipped with everything you need. The bed in the master bedroom is very comfortable and it's great that there is a dishwasher. Also lots of storage space for a small cottage. Location is great too, close to everything Cape Cod has to offer.
What I loved the most though was the backyard and the woods, flowers everywhere, so beautiful and serene! Our pup also loved the yard and the walks in the woods, perfect for a high energy dog. Hari and his brother take good care of the three rental properties and grounds. We really enjoyed our time there, thank you guys!
Cape Cod Cozy
Cottage was clean and cozy with all you could need on the Cape.
Surrounded by flower beds and a hidden wooded walk. It was a
great getaway. I look forward to visiting again.
Five Trees Cottage is a five star place to stay!
Hari Rai made my stay like a home away from home. When we arrived there was a personal welcome for me and my dog Moxie. I had mentioned I would watch the tv for local weather. and Hari had it set to the weather channel for Barnstable.The cottage was spotless and fully equipped. Hari checked occasionally to see if there was anything more I needed, and he provided information about where to shop, eat, and relax, even letting me know where Moxie would be welcome. The two acre property has walking trails that I took Moxie on each day and she loved it. Outdoor furniture and grills were available and placed in various spots near the cottage and on the trails as well. I was so pleased with the cottage that I drove to Chatham to try Hari's Public Cafe and found the food and hospitality there as great as at the cottage.
Thank you 🙇
One of the last slices of "Olde Cape Cod" you'll find at a very affordable price
This review is through the lens of someone who grew up (year round) on "Olde Cape Cod". We have been coming to Five Trees since 2012. We were actually on the property when the previous owner put it up for sale in the summer of 2015, and were very sad to learn she would not be renting going forward. Needless to say we were very pleased to learn that Hari had bought the business & property from Suzy this past year, and quickly booked a quick long weekend away.
At this point we have stayed in both townhouses on the property as well as the cottage. My wife & kids and I love the property & the grounds; the hammock and chairs in the woods adds a cool dimension to the experience as well. One thing to make clear; the cottage and both townhouses are distinctly "Olde Cape Cod", meaning the decor is mostly from a different era. Personally I feel this is charming and brings back wonderful memories of growing up on the Cape. That being said I know that Hari is working hard to make improvements to the grounds and all three residences. In fact as we were leaving to head back home he was installing a new microwave & coffee maker in the unit, and a new door in one of the others.
If you enjoy the Bay side of the Cape you will love this location. It is literally on the border of Yarmouth & Barnstable, and you can cruise down 6A from the Canal to Orleans in about an hour, making all sorts of interesting stops along the way. My key things to check out would be, in no particular order: the walk down Mill Lane around Hallet's Mill Pond to Keveney Lane and back to 6A; Gray's Beach & the Boardwalk in Yarmouth Port; breakfast at the Blue Plate Diner in Barnstable (across from the courthouse); grab some steaks at Peterson's in Yarmouth on 6A and grill them up on one of the grills on the property; Whale Watcher in Barnstable Harbor for a cruise out to Stellwagen to see the whales; dinner at the Lost Dog Pub in East Dennis; the proximity to Willow Street allows direct access to Hyannis Harbor on the Sound side for the Hyline Fast Ferry to Nantucket or the Vineyard, along with harbor cruises and headboat/charter fishing opportunities.
My family and I love this property and we are very glad Hari is keeping the tradition going. We look forward to coming back next year and seeing what great improvements he has made!
This old house has the basics.
Since, everyone has their own ideas and perpective about charming and restored, I will only tell you what you can expect and not share my perspective. You arrive to your name on the door welcoming you, (nice touch) and then you open the door to the strong odor of must and a house filled with old furniture with no design intention for charm. You have two basic chairs, a broken down sofa, a newer tv with cable and WiFi without instructions on how to use the three remotes provided. There is a rusty kitchen table and four wobbly chairs. I am not sure what was restored in this house, but I thought I might have seen a couple of possibilities. The house was not clean and the window blinds were covered in a mildew film which might cause a dilemma in choosing the importance of privacy. The kitchen is filled with old and some rusty utensils that need to be washed before using or tossed out. You have a small choice of pots, pans, and knives which are not safe to use and there were no paper products provided or dish towels. But there was an old mildew sponge provided. The dishwasher and refiregerator have strong unpleasant odors and unclean with mildew. The overloaded electrical circuits have extension chords carrying the electrical loads for appliances.
The bathroom looks a little renovated, with possibly newer floors and shower. No paper products provided. The main bedroom has an ok bed, and there are drapes over the closet held up by string and hooks that are falling apart. The second bedrroom ls similar with new floors possibly. The beds are cot like, so they would work for anyone under 100 lbs.
The land surrounding the area is beautiful, You can sit on the rusty furniture outback to enjoy the butterflies and fireflies.
The washer and dryer are located in the basement of a house across the yard. You have to enter through the bilko doors, which is very awkward especially carrying something down the narrow steps. Be aware of the overhead pipes as you enter the basement. There are no warning signs to lower your head. The washer and dryer are nice. I used them right before I left to rewash all of my clothes and linens because of they were filled with a musty smell.
The host and his brother that take care of the place are nice men. And are available if you have questions or concerns.
We definitely recommend staying here
This quaint cottage was as we expected - perfect for our short get-away vacation! And Dougy our dog would certainly agree. We will be back as five days was not enough time to taken in the hiking, geocaching and eating out that we enjoy so much.
Suzy made us feel at home. Definitely a two thumbs up!
It was a pleasure having you & Dougie here and I'm so glad you enjoyed the place. Do come back again for a longer period of time. Suzy
