Home Away From Home: This cottage is sure to become your home away from home. Originally built in the 40s by local builder and landowner, Clayton Horton, the cottage is nestled in a wonderful grove of trees at the base of Fort Hill. Clayton first moved two antique 18th century homes from South Orleans to neighboring parcels. He then built the 4 cottages on the property from salvaged materials from the barns of these homes, and sited them amongst the apple trees of his old orchard. While the 'bones' and architectural details of this cottage is original, the layout and and systems has been updated and re-designed. It's all yours – relax, nap, read, take a walk, explore...

Great Time!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I rented this cute, modernized cottage on a whim and we had a great time on the Outer Cape. We hadn't ever stayed on this part of the Cape before, but quickly realized how great it is. Fort Hill is a quaint cluster of 3 updated cottages just off of the main road. Though the place is super small and lacks storage, the cottage is perfect for a beach getaway when you don't need much luggage. (Bring the bare minimums and you'll be fine!) The cottage lacks space, but pretty much has everything you need for comfort and convenience. It was great that we could take our dog with us as well. My only criticism would be to get some curtains/blinds for the bathroom for more privacy. Also, it would be great if there was a door or curtain for the outdoor shower.

Stylish and Pristine

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is so pretty and well-situated that I could stay here the rest of my life! Imagine a spotless white cotton duck sofa bed, and you will understand the care and attention that is given to this Fort Hill cottage, with the interior completely redesigned. The bathroom is beautifully tiled and connects with the refined outdoor shower. The craftsmanship is beyond any other shower on the Cape. This is a new standard for Cape cottages, that retains the seashore atmosphere yet provides a chic sense of space.

Relaxing week-end on the Cape in Fall

  • 5 of 5

The cottage that we rented was charming, practical and very confortable. The bathroom, bedroom and kitchen were very clean.

We had a very good time in Cap Code the week-end in fall we were there. We felt relaxed witch is what we were looking for.
