Property description

Lovely two-level house on Little Pleasant Bay in Orleans, MA. 1000 feet of salt-water river and Bay frontage- instant access for kayaking or swimming. It offers pristine views of the Bay and Kent's Point Nature Preserve, with a large yard and gardens. Fresh water swimming in Pilgrim Lake (great for young children) is just a short walk. Dine or just relax on the screened porch. The layout affords lots of privacy for multiple families on two (and a half) levels.

Explore the sand roads and the Preserve's hiking trails. This home is a Nature Lovers' Dream. Yet, Orleans Center with great shopping, dining, theater and the Rail Trail is a 10 minute bike ride and Nauset Beach is just 10 minutes from the house as well. Everything that is wonderful about Cape Cod is just outside your door.

Our guests love this house for family reunions because it has plenty of separate spaces for large and small group relaxing. Our fully furnished house easily welcomes 10-12 people with ample kitchen utensils and service items, a variety of comfortable beds and ample bathrooms, 2 flat screen TVs (with cable and wi-fi), a washer and dryer, clothesline, air conditioning in each of the bedrooms and a central unit for the large open living area, outdoor rinse-off shower and a new gas grill. Our kitchen has everything you need including a new gas stove and new refrigerator. The screened porch is perfect for sunrise quiet and sunset celebration. Bright, private and beautifully furnished with original artwork, this house is a true vacation retreat.

The open first floor layout includes two dining areas, the kitchen and living room. A full bathroom off the living room area serves a bedroom with Queen Bed and another room with Twins (which can covert to a King if desired) and a sleep couch. The Master Suite has a sitting area, its own full bathroom, walk in closet and King Bed. The lower level (which has a separate entrance from the back yard if desired) has two bedrooms and one bathroom with a shower. One of the bedrooms has a Queen Bed and the other has a Full Bed and a Twin Bed. Each of the bedrooms is quite spacious and has plenty of windows as well as air conditioning units.

What you will need: You will need to bring your own sheets, pillowcases and bath/beach towels. You can also choose to rent these from our local source. We generally have a full stock of kitchen herbs and spices, coffee filters, garbage bags and cleaning supplies. We also provide gas for the grill and there is always a full backup tank.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1967

About the owner: Our family moved to the Cape in the early sixties when my parents purchased an empty property in Orleans. That property became Tree's Place, one of the premiere gift shops/art galleries on the Cape. The house that we now offer for rental was our family home until recently. It began as two camp cabins and has experienced a number of renovations over the years. We love the house and spend as much time as we can there.

Why the Owner Chose Orleans, MA, USA:
We can't imagine a better place to vacation than our house. It is a peaceful retreat. It's arms are large enough to embrace multiple families without crowding. We have left evidence of our parents' very creative lives throughout the house. Our mother's paintings and prints (and those of her friends) hang everywhere and shelves with our father's books and short stories are available for all to appreciate.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we are at the house, it feels like we are completely in nature. Geese honking down the river, boats quietly skimming by and the lovely scents of trees in bloom... This is a unique older piece of Cape Cod and we love hearing how others truly appreciate its special quality.
