About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

Landmark beach house on renowned New Silver Beach/Wild Harbor in North Falmouth. Surrounded by breathtaking water views and silky white beaches, the circa 1900 house comfortably sleeps nine and is ideal for a quintessential Cape Cod vacation or romantic getaway.

Just steps from its own beach and swimming area, the rustic house has a newly renovated kitchen and upgraded baths with bead board and comfy chairs. Swim all day or relax on the beach with a good book, play tennis and basketball on the nearby court or launch your kayak. Broadband Wi-fi and cable TV keep you connected.

Four comfortable bedrooms offer plenty of privacy; one bedroom has a full and queen, a second has one queen, a third a queen, and a fourth has a single bed. The house is located near a new bike trail that leads to scenic Woods Hole, which has a ferry to Martha’s Vineyard.

New Silver Beach, located on Buzzards Bay, boasts some of the warmest swimming water on the Cape and is just a half hour from the Bourne Bridge which crosses the Cape Cod Canal. There is shopping in quaint Falmouth, just a 15-minute drive, with its array of toney stores, upscale restaurants, and bric-a-brac shops. If you decide to stay close to home, nearby farm stands and grocery stores are abundant with fresh local produce, fish, flowers, wines and spirits, and all of the necessities.

What makes this house unique

We love the easy beach access, just steps from our door and the feeling of being surrounded by sand. The water is the warmest on the Cape. The sand, soft and silvery, hence the name Silver Beach. There's a raft and lifeguards on the Association beach to the front of the house and a playground to the rear. The beach to the rear of the house is ours. We are are the last house on the street with unobstructed views of Wild Harbor and Buzzard's Bay. Summer sunsets are spectacular and we enjoy dinner and drinks on the deck. Behind the house is a tennis court and basketball court and playground. The Tea Room nearby is a small cantina selling ice cream and snacks with video games. The Silver Beach Association runs movies onn the tennis court on Sundays and Wednesdays. We enjoy walks along the beach to the Wild Harbor River at low tide to see the Osprey nests. Walk along Wild Harbor Road to Nyes Neck and its grand cottages. Mini golf, a new bike path to Woods Hole and at least 4 ice cream windows are a short drive away.

Perfect Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved this place! The playground out back was perfect for the kids but the best part was the deck overlooking the ocean and marina. I dream of these sunsets! We will absolutely be back.

Perfect location - esp if you have young children; great for cooking

  • 5 of 5

Great views. Porches on 3 sides of the house means you can almost always sit protected from sun or wind. The small side beach is perfect if you have younger children - you can watch them from a few feet away while they play. The kitchen is set up with space and equipment for doing actual cooking / baking, which was a huge benefit. The owner was very friendly and helpful when we had some questions. Overall we had a wonderful stay and already are hoping to return next year.

Spent the last 5 years here

  • 5 of 5

Amazing! Mary is great. We have spent every summer here and never a disappointment. Our children have grown up vacationing here and now they think they have a "beach house" boy wouldn't that be great! Everything is stocked and ready for a week of relaxing and cooking and the amazing decks on the water. We couldn't ask for more. Thank you so much. Can't wait to get back.
