About Property Manager
I've have been vacationing on Cape Cod my entire life. I've always valued staying at a property that has it all - location, quality, beautiful views and comfortable accommodations. This is all so important when celebrating life with family and friends and creating memories that will last forever.
Property Manager purchased this Estate in 2006
Why Property Manager chose Orleans
There are a number of large houses on Cape Cod. Our property features the most bedrooms in the Orleans/Eastham area of Cape Cod. Our guests love the fact they can all be together yet have their own space.
What makes this Estate unique
What family, friends and travelers alike all rave about, is the fact that our property has 4 separate houses and living spaces. All 4 homes are in a "U" shape that flows out into the beautiful yard and patio overlooking the water.

I wish we could live there!
Our family rented the Captain Heman Smith House last fall for accommodations during our daughters wedding. The property was perfect! The wedding was held at the Chatham Bars Inn and The Captain Heman Smith Estate gave our family the feeling of having our own compound on Cape Cod for the long weekend. Family members were able to pop in and out giving us the perfect laid back gathering place. We loved the property so much we’re taking the family back next summer for a week in August! If you are looking for the ultimate Cape Cod vacation be sure to book a week at this landmark property.
Our very best family vacation!
This property is picture perfect! Our whole family enjoyed every minute we were there. The Compound is a really special place, we were all together and still had our own space. The layout of the houses was ideal for our family and extended family. When we arrived the houses were all spotless. The kids loved swimming and fishing from the dock as well collecting various shells. The 4 kitchens were a huge plus for our “theme dinners”. We loved the fact that Nauset Beach was so close by and the proximity to shopping and the local restaurants was a huge plus. The owners were great and really personable. They have done a fantastic job with this landmark property right down to every last detail. I would recommend this rental to any large group looking for the quintessential getaway on Cape Cod, while still having all the modern conveniences of home. This rental was worth every penny, we look forward to returning again next year and for years to come – well done!
Captain Heman Smith House-Perfect!
What a lovely property! We filled the compound to capacity and had plenty of room. This was the location for our annual family summer vacation, a group of 20. The property was very clean and well maintained.
The compound is divided into 4 houses/cottages which gave everyone their "own space" and the grandparents a quiet place to hide with the 11 children running around. Although we didn't swim from the docks, the kids spent hours fishing and crabbing down there.
Sunrises were lovely and the yard gave us enough room for a lobster/clam bake and to set up the badminton tent.
Shopping is very close by (within walking distance) which made it very easy for anything we needed! Great ocean and bay beaches are also close by.
We have been doing our annual trip for 9 years and this property ranks at the top! I would recommend this property for any large group looking to have a fun and relaxing trip!
Thank you very much for your review! It means so much to us every time we hear about the great experiences families like yours have at the Compound. We look forward every summer to making the property even that much better. Summer on Cape Cod together with family and friends is what life is all about – creating an experience filled with memories that will last a lifetime. All the best!
Other Activities: Kayaking, Standup paddle boarding.
