Enjoy the comfort of this conveniently located and well-appointed newer home. Nauset Beach (oceanside) with full amenities (restrooms, outdoor showers, Liam's for seafood, burgers, ice cream and more) is just a short drive (3.5 mi) from the house. Skaket Beach on the Cape Cod Bay with its long stretch of shallow water and tidal flats where it's fun to discover sea life is great for families and is under 3 mi from the house. Orleans offers a wide array of shops, restaurants, the fabulous bike trail (paved 22 mi that pass through Dennis, Harwich, Orleans, Wellfleet), mini-golf and Cape Cod League (free!) baseball games.

You'll enjoy coming home to "Your Place on the Cape" with its spacious and fully equipped kitchen. There's plenty of counter space to prepare meals together or whip up a cocktail while friends or family sit at the kitchen island talking about another fun day at your favorite beach. The open floor plan includes the spacious dining area (sits up to 10) and a comfortable living area for all to relax watching the HDTV or listening to your favorite tunes on the Bose music system. And of course there is wireless internet for all your devices.

The first floor master suite has a king size bed and the attached bathroom includes a Jacuzzi tub. The two bedrooms upstairs share a spacious bathroom with a luxurious 2-person tub. Bed linens are included for all beds (king, queen, 3 twin). There is also a portable crib (see photo) for the very youngest guests. Towel sets (beach, bath and hand towels and face cloths) are available for $25 per person.

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 Cape Cod

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!!

A wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family visit to the Cape, and we had such a wonderful time at the house! It was perfect for our family of four (two little boys, ages 2 and 3 1/2) -- the house was immaculate and spacious, and it was so conveniently located to everything that we needed. It was a quick drive to Skaket and Nauset, and we loved just being at the house and playing in the fenced-in back yard. On top of that, Maureen was incredibly helpful -- she was in touch as we went through the rental process, she made our entry/exit so easy, and her guidebook of local attractions helped us figure out where to eat, shop, and take the kids for fun excursions. This house had everything we needed -- a fully stocked kitchen, kites in the garage, beach chairs and umbrellas, and even children's toys in the bedrooms. We so hope to return this coming summer!

What a great rental property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stay was excellent. The weather was perfect, the house was immaculated, the kitchen very well appointed, decorated beautifully yet comfortable. The property is conveniently located to beach, shopping and restraunts. The owner is professional and very thoughtful, so considerate of our baby granddaughter who stayed with us for a couple of nights.

Wonderful vacation on the Cape!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I chose to vacation on Cape Cod for the first time. We were searching for a home that was in a good location near activities for our young children and close to beaches; we found just that. On top of a beautiful home with all of the small details well thought out, Maureen was more than helpful on several occasions.

Before the trip even began, Maureen fielded emails from me about local attractions and was very gracious and helpful. When we arrived, we found the home beautifully decorated (as you can see in the pictures) and the house had a very cozy feel. On top of the well decorated bedrooms and living area, there were plenty of activities for my children such as a ping pong table in the basement, badminton in the back yard and even toys in the children's bedroom.

The location of the house is idea as it is within minutes of multiple beaches and very close to a lake. Also, the town of Orleans had lots of shopping and restaurants, as well as the Cape Cod Baseball League, which was only about a mile from the house.

We had a wonderful first experience in Cape Cod and we hope to be returning soon to Maureen's beautiful home. Thank you!

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and a friend spent four relaxing days visiting Cape Cod a couple of weeks ago. We were thrilled to find Maureen's house to be all that was promised, and more! The kitchen was spacious and had everything needed, the living and dining room were comfortable, the bedrooms beautifully decorated, and we found the entire house, yard, and location to be perfect. Maureen has taken the time to prepare a large notebook with maps, information on activities, grocery stores, restaurant menus, etc. for visitors, and this was much appreciated. We also found this property to be wonderfully situated for two days of cycling on the Cape Cod Rail Trail. Thanks so much for a great stay, Maureen. We want to come back!
