Outside on the patio you’ll find a picnic table with new gas grill. The large fenced in yard has lounge chairs, a hammock and a badminton net for some outdoor fun and relaxation. The attached two car garage offers ample space for your car, bicycles, surfboards, etc. This is also where you'll find plenty of beach chairs, boogie boards, toys for making sand castles and a cooler with wheels.

Additional space can be found in the unfinished basement with 2 couches, an electric keyboard and a ping pong table for extra fun.

Short walk to Crystal Lake and .4 mile to the boat landing on Lonnie’s Pond (Kescayogansett). Just 1 mile to Orleans center for restaurants, shops and cafes. Great location to explore other Cape towns too such as Chatham, Harwich, Wellfleet and Provincetown. Look forward to welcoming you in this Cape Cod home!

About Your Place on the Cape

My family and I moved from Amsterdam, The Netherlands, to the Cape in May 2003 and spent a good two years searching for the perfect house in one of the Nauset school district’s four towns. We love the town of Orleans for its downtown center of shops, the choice of beautiful bay and ocean beaches and an array of clean and inviting freshwater lakes.

Your Place on the Cape purchased this house in 2005

Why Your Place on the Cape chose Orleans

This modular (or “pre-fabricated”) house was built at Marcoux, a company based outside of Quebec. It was the perfect solution to finding something quick to move into after having to move out of a winter rental. As the house is well-built and insulated, I hope you find it comfortable and inviting; a great place to relax, have fun at and come home to.

What makes this house unique

The short stroll to Crystal Lake, a very clean freshwater paradise for swimmers and fishermen alike is a treat. Boaters can enjoy the numerous nearby boat landings, Lonie's Pond brings you out to the Atlantic Ocean (and Outer Beach). Both Nauset and Skaket are so easy to reach, you're there within minutes by car and there's a host of shops, boutiques, restaurants, all in downtown Orleans as well as all the practical things like supermarkets, drugstores, gas stations and banks. Orleans is a quaint town with well kept grounds, harbors and lakes. The towns of Harwich and Chatham are easily accessible as well as the Outer Cape towns of Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown.

Guestbook comments from the manager

This is a beautiful house that is wonderfully outfitted and amazingly comfortable. You can tell that the owner takes pride in the house - it's spotless and very well maintained. An excellent find! Unlike many rentals that we've had, there was not a hint of mustiness or mold. Even with a very rainy week, the house was amazingly comfortable and enjoyable. In addition, relaxing for us includes cooking and so often I have to pack my own kitchen items, not this time. What a delight to have everything you need for gourmet cooking and baking. The home is conveniently located to Crystal Lake (about 3/4 mile walk) and to town. Rt. 28 can be noisy, but with the windows on the front of the house closed, it was not disruptive to sleeping at all - we didn't even notice it by the middle of the week. We had a full house (7) on the weekend for a family wedding and there was plenty of space and no one is on top of anyone else. It was all great - we strongly recommend it!!

Great location and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house! The location could not be better - it is convenient to beaches, restaurants, ponds and anything else you might need. We loved the outdoor shower, the hammock and the play area in the basement for the kids. Maureen has gone the extra mile to include all kinds of helpful information (her binder of restaurant and activity info is impressive) and thoughtful touches (a badminton set and extra buckets and chairs) and is available for any questions. Thanks for a great stay!

Perfect house for Cape vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second summer that my family (4) shared this home with my cousin's family (3) for a week. The home is immaculate, spacious and had all the amenities needed. It is located close to Skaket and Nauset beaches, shopping, dining and other conveniences. Thanks for sharing your home with us again! See you next summer!
