Simply Delightful. Enter this charming Cape Cod cottage from a private parking area off this secluded little cul-de-sac and walk down a short hallway to ... WOW! An extraordinary sweeping vista afforded by multi-paned windows and wide sliding glass doors which open onto the 40-foot deck. Start and end your day with serenity, gaze over peaceful salt marshes and Cape Cod Bay. Watch the sun rise over the Bay. Be awed by starry, starry nights. Make a wish upon a shooting star. Nature performs - four shows daily - the tide ebbs and flows to eight feet and more every six hours. Birds abound - Great Blue Heron, Mallard Duck, Canada Geese, Osprey, owls, hawks, songbirds and of course seagulls.
Sandy Cape Cod Bay beaches are a short drive away...or a nice one mile walk to the Sandwich Boardwalk at Town Neck Beach.
In the Garden you will find:: A cutting garden - fresh flowers for you.
Go across the railway track and fly-fish for Striped Bass, weakfish and blues in the marsh at hight tide.
In the Spring, wonderful Rhododendron bloom in the yard, and within walking distance (a longish walk), discover Heritage Gardens, a museum and garden complex which includes extensive gorgeous displays of Rhododendron and azalea, and a wonderful selection of Art, Motor Vehicle, Military, Baseball and other Musea, including a REAL 1902 Merry-Go-Round with rare original carved animals - endless rides included with admission to the grounds ...
In the Fall, lie out on the deck and watch spectacular meteor showers. Truly Awesome.

Charming home in a great location!
We had such an relaxing vacation in this home-we are usually on the go but we ended up spending so much time at this home enjoying the beautiful scenery and wildlife, sitting on the deck, relaxing with a good book or taking a nap.
The location is great, you can walk to the center, we liked The Daniel Webster Inn for lunch and dinner and Beth's for great coffee and baked goods.
The house was clean and well equipped, we appreciated meeting Rick on our first day. Would highly recommend this home and would love to return.
Wonderful location in Sandwich
Excellent property for 4 adults in a lovely location in Sandwich. Local amenities were good and touring around Cape Cod was easy except 3rd & 4th July which was obviously going to be a bit busier all round. We stayed local and joined in the celebrations .....even though we're from England.
Great home base for a Cape Cod vacation
My wife and I recently stayed at this Sandwich property for two weeks in June, our favorite Cape Cod time of the year but perhaps a little chilly for many beach-goers. The cottage was delightful, and Rick was a wonderful host, stopping by once midway to ensure all was well with us. The view of the marsh is very tranquil but it is pretty far from open water, so it was a little "sticky" and "buggy" on one or two more humid days. (Be prepared with bug spray.) We used this upper cape home base for day trips to all the places we wanted to go: Nantucket, Martha's Vineyard, Chatham, Cape Cod National Shore, Boston, and more. It was very comfortable and very convenient all around, perfect for our vacation plans. We actually stayed in Sandwich (and down in Falmouth) more than we had planned because there were so many nice spots to eat, walk, and read -- the holy trinity of our vacations.
The property is situated in a perfect location - quiet and well hidden, but at the same time very close to everything. The ever changing views of the marshland are breathtaking! Our kids, my wife and I really enjoyed staying there. Unfortunately we won't be able to visit soon again, since we are living abroad, but we have already recommended the place to colleagues and friends.
A beautiful holiday home
We had a lovely relaxing break in this very well-equipped house with stunning views of the salt marshes and sea. It was a great base from which to explore Cape Cod with lots of home comforts, including excellent wifi for our two teenage daughters. So many great things to do: the Shining Sea Trail bike ride, a Hyannis whale cruise, a free Friday visit to the Sandwich Glass Museum, visits to Town Neck Beach and the Boardwalk, the Ice Cream Sandwich, Beth's and Cape Cod Canal, plus waving at the trains and spotting humming birds! Many thanks Rick and Peg
5 Land's End Lane is a wonderful summer rental
We had a wonderful time at 5LEL in August. The house is charming and just as described in the Home Away publicity. The master bedroom is spacious, both bedrooms have closets and chests of drawers and the mattresses are comfortable; the bathrooms function well. The living/dining room is big, has good lighting, and the dining table, chairs and sofas are perfect for evening activities. The kitchen is beautifully equipped (we ate in a lot), and it functions extremely well. The house is peaceful and also within a short walk (approx. 25 minutes) of Sandwich Town Centre, and the Boardwalk and Creek - we regularly walked or rode bikes to both. (We also visited the Heritage Gardens, the Cape Cod Canal, the library, and took the summer weekend trolley ride around all the main sites). It is the views over the salt marsh out to the ocean, and the birdlife, along with the fun of the occasional passing train, however, which make 5LEL particularly special. The comfy deck furniture was inviting and so made us want to spend time on the gorgeous deck soaking up the seaside atmosphere and views. An added pleasure to our visit was meeting Rick Spada and his family who were welcoming, kind and very helpful. We would highly recommend 5LEL, and want to thank Rick again for a very happy summer visit to Sandwich.
