About the Property

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Built in 2007, comfortable cape style home for up to 10 guests has two floors, open style Kitchen Dining Living area. Relax on the large deck facing a memorable woodland waterfront view, enjoy the breeze and clean water with our private sandy beach on Upper Mill Pond.
Master bedroom king sized bed features private access to the full Bathroom. Small bedroom has a twin and twin size trundle, convertible Family room w/full futon sofa lets kids get away for TV video that can also be closed off for the third sleeping area. Your family can play with the provided games or watch movies on the flat screen TV. The fully equipped Kitchen has an island for added prep area and a campy restored 1950's gas stove with center griddle. Our acre lot has outdoor room for kids play: tag, catch, Frisbee, volleyball.
Located in the mid-Cape. We are on the east end of Upper Mill Pond in Brewster. Our house, 9FDL, is walking distance to Punkhorn conservation land that provides hiking trails or woodland biking. Cape Cod Rail Trail is a short drive away provides miles of cycling adventure.

Hang your car keys up and enjoy our clean fresh water sandy beach and water connections to Lower Mill Pond and Walker's Pond with our canoe or travel 1.6 miles to explore nearby Paines Creek Beach ocean access. Guests have loved floating on the winding tidal inlet at Paines Creek.
View sunsets from our deck over the Pond looking west or drive down to Kate's for an ice cream on your way to view sunsets at nearby Paines Creek Beach. Visit nearby bay side ocean beaches or travel to tourist sights from Brewster. Brewster Town Hall, open 7 days/week until 3PM, offers Town beach (Paines Creek is one of 8 bay beaches) parking permits: $15/day or $50/week during the Summer Season.

We have added since we started renting: two new 2nd floor Bedrooms added Spring 2016, a hot water outdoor shower, internet access, another Living Room chair, a canoe stand for easy use and a hammock with hammock stand as a result of some return rental comments.
We have continued to add improvements each year since we started renting when we finished building our Brewster cape home and we keep our property maintained and very clean.

Additional information about rental rates

Fees:

  • Cleaning each week $150
  • Refundable Damage Deposit $500
  • Taxes Not included

Notes:

Rent for more than one week and save $150 off the rental for each additional week.

Additional cleaning fee to the weekly rate provides after departure cleaning service plus a cleaning inspection. We ask that our house is left in a broom swept condition for the cleaning staff to vacuum, clean bathrooms and wash floors.

Opt to pay Property Damage Insurance $49 Fee instead of $500 Security Deposit.

Use of a charge through Homeaway.com (VRBO) will add the 3% fee to the rental total, using a check payment sent with a 3 week min. advance will save this fee.

Owner info

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The antique gas stove has the perfect size for roasting a 15lb.+/- turkey, I've cooked an 18lb turkey Thanksgiving twice in this stove and the turkey was evenly cooked and juicy. The oven is smaller than the standard in width so the turkey was more evenly heated. We have seating for 8 at the table and 4 more at the adjacent island. We also set up the island with a multi-dish buffet assortment of Thanksgiving food that we prepared, including using a three dish slow cooker kept at the house. Keep the family together with a multi night sleep over and enjoy going for a canoe or kayak ride for the kids while the meal is being prepared.
