About the Property

House, 5 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Charming antique style home with large country kitchen, living room, card/game or use room as back up eating room, master bedroom, master bath and laundry on first floor. On second floor- three bedrooms(full, full, 2 twin beds), full bath plus common area with flat screen TV and queen futon.

Separate Building/Guest quarters- very spacious room with cathedral ceilings, pull out couch with queen mattress and full bathroom with large bath/jacuzzi. Outdoor shower facilities located next to the cottage. Can also use a single sized air mattress on the floor if desired.

5 minute walk to the spring fed waters of Crystal Lake. 5 minute walk/30 second drive to a saltwater pond that has a public town landing and leads to Pleasant Bay or just kayak on “The River”. 2-3 minute drive to Pilgrim Lake. 5-10 minute drive to Nauset or Skaket Beach. House was a former 1830’s school house that has been added on to over the years. Park like grounds allow for some great hide and seek games while the rest of the family plays tennis or just relaxes on the back patio. Mature gardens offer something in bloom from spring to fall. You’ll see why we call our home “The Good Life”…

Use of beach chairs, toys, beach towels and paddle board. Central A/C in main house with A/C window unit in guest quarters. Extra parking behind the guest cottage. Three flat screen TVs plus wireless high speed internet.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: We are an American/Swedish family living in Germany and knew instantly that this would be the perfect summer house for us with 3 kids and rotating guests. We loved the antique charm and layout of the house, and of course the tennis court! Kids running in and out of the house, people playing tennis, board games or simply reading in a quiet corner. There's something for everyone in this house!

Why Orleans, MA, USA:
We rented in Orleans in 2006 and fell in love with the town. The town is 'Americana' at its best. Traditional main street with excellent shopping, nice library and superb cafes and restaurants. Plus water everywhere- lakes, inlets, bayside, oceanside- all within minutes of each other!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Tennis in the late afternoon, after the beach, then drinks on the patio. The option in early evening for swimming at Crystal Lake while the sun is setting...Sitting on the patio at night, tiki flames aglow and counting the shooting stars....Monday night band concerts at Nauset beach...Sitting on the hill watching the Cape Cod baseball league...spending the day at either Nauset or Skaket beach...
