About the Property

2 bedrooms, 1 full bath, sleeps 4 adults, outdoor cape-style enclosed shower

In Falmouth's Historic District and on the Falmouth Road Race route, hardwood floors, dishwasher, washer & dryer, Webber gas grill, porch with cool ocean breeze, Samsung flat-screen TV, gas fireplace, beautifully landscaped surroundings, picnic tables, 8-minute walk to town, 2-minute walk to beach, close to Shining Sea Bike Path, Spohr Gardens and Martha's Vineyard ferries. Three bicycles are provided for free (each would be $100 per week at Falmouth rental rates).

The Neighborhood: This is a year-round established neighborhood in Falmouth's Historic District. It is cooled by pleasant sea breezes, making the porch an especially delightful spot to enjoy a book and a beverage. The location is ideal for the biking enthusiast, being a short ride to the Shining Sea Bike Path which connects picturesque Wood's Hole with North Falmouth (12-14 miles each way). If you are a coffee nut and like to spend time over great coffee, I recommend the Coffee Obsession. There is one in Woods Hole another in the 'Queens Buyway' in Falmouth center. Also highly recommend 'Pie in the Sky' in Woods Hole for breakfast sandwiches and great coffee. From the house it is a short walk to Falmouth Harbor, where the Clam Shack provides great eating while you sit and watch the boat traffic in and out of the harbor.

Falmouth Center: The center of Falmouth is an 8-minute walk. The town library, which has a large selection of DVD's, wifi, and a great selection of books. There is a variety of restaurants along main street catering to varied tastes. Park your car in the driveway for the week. Bike and walk. While you can drive a couple miles to Stop and Shop or Shaws supermarket, I recommend biking or walking the Windfall Market, across from the harbor, for your shopping. If you're a bargain shopper, Falmouth has a WalMart, Christmas Tree Shop and Ocean State Job Lot.

Golf: There are a number of great golf courses in the area. My favorite is Cape Cod Country Club, followed by Falmouth Country Club. Check out their websites for details.

Owner info

About the owner: I am a retired career educator, having been a classroom teacher for many years and later a high school principal, My father, a master carpenter, built the house in the early 1950's. At first it was a summer house, but my parents later winterized it for year-round use. This was the house in which I spent my summers growing up. When my mother passed away I inherited the house. At that time I had it completely renovated, while retaining its traditional character and charm.

Why the Owner Chose Falmouth, MA, USA:
This 'doll's house' is uniquely situated for both relaxation and activity, having ready access to beach, harbor and town center. Because of the family memories and our affection for the area, my wife Claire (also a retired career educator) and I maintain the house and yard as a labor of love.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our favorite spot is the porch, where cooling sea breezes enhance viewing the roses, rhododendrons, hydrangeas, mountain laurel, wysteria, holly trees and other plants that bloom in sequence from spring through fall.
