About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Kayakers and nature lovers take note! Our compact 4 bedroom, 2 bath home on 7+ waterfront acres in Orleans offers extraordinary privacy with exquisite water views of historic Arey's Pond, part of Pleasant Bay. The adjoining 8+ acres of conservation land lets you leave the crowds behind.

A private landing, steps from the house, brings kayaking, boating, fishing and clamming to your front yard, along with direct access to Pleasant Bay, prime water for sailing, and the Atlantic Ocean. With a screened porch, the house faces west for peaceful sunsets and refreshing breezes. Almost every room has a water view. With 2 bedrooms down and 2 up, the house sleeps 8 on two kings and four twins with a hall bathroom on each floor.

Nauset and Skaket beaches and the Bike Trail are each about four miles by local roads; two freshwater swimming lakes are within a mile on quiet kid-safe lanes. This is a great back-road area for walking, biking, and enjoying nature, yet it's convenient to downtown Orleans and Chatham with their great shopping and restaurants.

Our fully equipped home comes with washer, dryer, dishwasher and air-conditioning. Both bathrooms have been recently renovated, with a shower downstairs and tub/shower upstairs. There is also an outdoor shower and place to rinse off after a day on the water. The main floor is recently tiled; there are hardwood doors upstairs. The house offers the easy indoor-outdoor flow of a classic summer home. When you're having a relaxing dinner on the porch watching the sun set after a day at the beach or on the water, you'll know what makes Cape Cod so special!

Please note: Although it sleeps 8, the house is compact and the living area is more comfortable for six or fewer people, with room for guests when needed.

Handicap Accessibility: No steps at all to enter the first floor. However the doorways are not wide.

About The Owner

Marcia and her two sisters have loved Cape Cod since childhood. Their family has owned this property for more than 60 years.

The Owner purchased this house in 1950

Why The Owner chose Cape Cod

Orleans offers proximity to shopping and easy local-road access to all areas of eastern Cape Cod, while having an astonishing variety of water to choose from. Besides the famous Nauset Beach, there is Cape Cod Bay (Skaket Beach and Rock Harbor), Pleasant Bay and its tributaries, and great swimming lakes.

What makes this house unique

Situated adjacent to conservation land with walking trail. The house is in an especially private and quiet area of Orleans next to Mayflower Point. The screened porch overlooking Arey's Pond forms the heart of a real Cape vacation. We can watch sailboats coming in and out of the Pond, watch the swans, ducks, and herons catching their dinner, and enjoy the extraordinary privacy that comes from being on an exceptionally large piece of property. We can take a quick kayak ride just before dusk or watch the tide for the best moment to go fishing or clamming. We can walk down the long driveway and have miles of gravel back roads available to us for walking and biking with two freshwater swimming lakes an easy bike ride away. On summer nights, with the windows open, the house feels like a sleeping porch with lots of the amazing Cape Cod fresh air. When we're here, we eat well, sleep well, do lots of things together and just unwind.

Cozy and quiet for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week to attend our nephew's wedding in Orleans.The cabin was perfect! Very neat and clean, quiet surroundings, and lovely view of sailboats on Arey's Pond. There were 4 of us for the entire week, with 2 more coming later in the week. Plenty of bedrooms and eating areas! We all loved the rustic atmosphere and being surrounded by trees. In addition, it was close to our other relatives and easy to drive to Hyannis and Provincetown. Highly recommend for a family or couple who want to visit Cape Cod and environs. Very responsive and welcoming owners, too!

Great rental and super location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a fantastic 2 week vacation in Sept. 2010 here. The house is roomy, very clean and well equipped, with great views of the pond. We really enjoyed having dinner on the screened-in porch and watching the sun set. The location is wonderful, right on Arey's Pond - lovely and quiet. It was the ideal location for us as we had just purchased a tandem kayak, so launching was a breeze right from the yard! We will definitely return, and I highly recommend this rental. The owners are really nice too. Thanks for sharing your great place with us! Lisa & Tom
