We get many inquiries, so if you see an availability that can work for your group, let us know right away as we get completely booked every year from Memorial weekend thru mid October. (Mid October thru mid May the house is rented long term to winter residents.) The price quoted is for 10 people. For more than 10, the price is an additional $100 per person.
Nauset Beach House is a beautiful, comfortable home PLUS a connected cottage, located in the very desirable area of Nauset Heights, East Orleans, just 2 lots away from the Priscilla Landing/Nauset Inlet and a walk over the dune to famous Nauset beach. Our location is ideal for people who have beach, boating, fishing, surfing, bird watching and athletic interests. The boat launching area into thousands of acres of the Nauset harbor is only about a 2 min. walk from property.
Spacious and beautiful, Nauset Beach House offers 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths (plus a great outdoor shower!) along with a 2nd kitchen and a 2nd living room in the attached, remodeled cottage.
This 2nd living room/dining room can also be used as a 5th bedroom as it has a comfy daybed and a new high quality memory foam queen size sofa bed. The 2nd kitchen area offers an extra refrigerator, micro, coffee maker, and beautiful granite seating area. The cottage also has a pretty bedroom with 2 twins beds and a full bath.
The cottage has its own outside entrance and is connected by French doors and a pretty hallway to the main house. These can be closed for quiet and privacy. This is perfect for grandaprents or others who want to be with the group but enjoy some space too. (The main house and the cottage are always rented to the same group.)
Inside the main large house, there is a large 880 sq ft great room with 27 windows. There is a modern kitchen with a granite island to seat 5, a big dining table for 8-10 and a large living room with 2 new Sunbrella sofas, comfy chairs, 46" HDTV, Comcast cable, WIFI, etc.
Upstairs, there are 3 bedrooms--the two beautiful queen bedrooms both have water views, one with private bath, the other with a walk out water view deck. From that deck there is a spiral staircase to the observation deck with water views & often gorgeous sunsets over the inlet.
There is also a cute, nautically themed 3rd bedroom that sleeps 3, with bunk beds and a single twin. There are 2 Pack N Plays for your use as well. Both upstairs baths are spacious with full tub/showers and double Corian sinks, custom cabinetry, etc.
In the walkout basement, there are both ping pong and pool tables, sofas for hanging out and watching the games, and lots of beach toys, boogie boards, skim boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, beach umbrellas, strollers, and a fun red wagon to haul stuff in. This is also where the washer, dryer, iron and ironing board are.
Total inside square footage is 3,800. Outside of the house are 610 sq. ft of 4 big decks, furnished with multiple tables and chairs, lounges, etc. With all this space, there is lots of room for folks to move around and spread out.
The house is built of natural woods and is low allergy/non toxic, as are our cleaning products. To honor our guests with allergies, no smoking or pets are allowed. Our flower gardens and lawns are all organic and chemical free. For outside play we offer a croquet set and a bin of balls, racquets, frisbees, etc..
Please contact us, the owners, for more information, photos, contract details, future availability, and check out our new website, www.nausetbeachhouse.com
Because this is such a great house for entertaining, we have a limit of up to 12 guests to maintain its' fine condition. We do not rent for graduation, weddings or other parties, nor to underage individuals.
The house is professionally cleaned from 10-3pm between each Sat. changeover. We provide a beautiful vase of flowers from our gardens upon check in and organic greens from our gardens when available.
As we live near by, we will check you in personally and are always available to help with any of your questions or concerns. In the meantime, we are happy to email you lots more photos.
As is customary on the Cape, we do not provide sheets or towels, but do offer plenty of pillows and blankets. For those not wanting to bring their own, the linen charge is $12 per person for sheets and towels and we request that they be washed with Free and Clear laundry soap and folded as much as possible before check out.
If you have a big family or group and are serious about renting Nauset beach House is wise to act early to disappointment.
The shoulder season of May/June and Sept/Oct are much less expensive but equally nice as there are fewer crowds but still lots to do and often wonderful weather. The 3rd weekend in Sept. offers the many free, fun events in Orleans called "Celebrate Our Waters". October has the wonderful Wellfleet Oysterfest. As we receive deposit checks, we block out the weeks that are reserved.
We take pride in the fact that Nauset Beach House is exceptionally well equipped! There are 2 kitchens! Between them we offer a dual fuel Jenn Air range, quiet Bosch dishwasher, Cusinart food processor, 2 refrigerators, 2 microwaves, 2 blenders, 2 coffee makers, coffee grinder, 2 toasters, lobster & pasta pots, waffle iron, griddles, and many pots, pans, serving dishes, utensils, etc. And a gas BBQ. Everything needed to feed a group....
WIZARD OF OZ Memorabilia: And most unusual of all, for fans for the famous movie 'The Wizard of Oz', we have a large collection of the personal memorabilia inherited from our Uncle RAY BOLGER who played the Scarecrow in that wonderful movie. We have many of his personal items on display here--- his dance shoes, top hat, his Tony Award for Best Actor, house keys, address book, photos with many celebrities and US Presidents, family members, etc.
For those with other tastes in amusement we have an extensive library of humor books--Dilbert, Calvin and Hobbs, Doonsbury, Garfield, New Yorker, P.G. Wodehouse, etc. There is also a section of non- fiction books, cookbooks, Cape Cod guidebooks, top fiction and a wonderful children's book collection and some quaint vintage such as the Nancy Drew series. Another shelf has over 300 Dvds many of them HD as well as many Cds for musical pleasure. Plus a 46' HD TV with Comcast cable in the main living room.There are numerous games, puzzles and poker in 2 cupboards, a set of blocks, cars and trucks, many, many toys, Barbies and her clothes, stuffed animals, etc. Like many other items in the house and kitchen, many of the toys are replaced annually as they show dirt or wear.
HISTORY: In 1940 the original cottage was built to serve as lodging for the Worsely family during duck hunting season. The location was chosen for its' ideal proximity to the marsh and waters of Nauset Inlet. Awhile ago, it was purchased by Mark Picton, a professional builder, who built the current main house as a 2,800 sq ft 'addition' to the original cottage. The two houses are connected by a wide hallway & french doors and the Ray Bolger memorabilia display cabinet. Another Picton building project, a beautiful house in Ct., very similar to ours, was featured in the November 2009 issue of Fine Homebuilding Magazine.
Nauset Beach House is located in east Orleans which is very convenient for great walking/exploring/playing at Nauset inlet or the more famous Nauset Beach.
Nauset inlet is very calm and more like a bayside beach with warmer water and fun little pools for kids to expore. There is also great kayaking, standup paddle boarding, sailing, water skiing, canoeing and boating here, a 3 minute walk from the house. Just over the dunes is big Nauset Beach which is often voted one of the top 10 beaches in the US and was selected by the Boston Globe as best walking beach in New England. There are over 10 miles of gorgeous waves, white sand and dunes, seashells, pretty beach rocks, driftwood and wildlife.
There are beautiful sunrises, excellent bass and blues fishing, surfing, sunbathing, full moon rises, and swimming in cool ocean waters.

Why the Owner Chose Orleans, MA, USA:
This prestigious area of Nauset Heights was developed over 100 yrs ago and many of those same families still summer in their original cottages. Our location is ideal for people who have beach, boating, fishing, surfing, bird watching and athletic interests. The boat launching area into thousands of acres of the Nauset harbor and marsh system is only about 200 feet from the end of the driveway. The calm water is always a favorite place for kayakers and standup paddle boarders, which can be rented by the half or full day in Orleans. Feel free to bring or rent small boats/kayaks for easy launching & our private lot has ample parking. This unique property also offers access to our Nauset Heights Assoc private staircase down to Nauset Beach. The house is just over a mile away from the public parking area of the famous Nauset beach. The majestic waves of the open ocean at Nauset Beach are only a 15 min. walk over the dune from the boat launching area.
