About Jim and Jinny Richardson
Jim and I retired here to the Cape in 2000 from New Jersey. Jim was a lawyer and I was a stay at home mom to our five children. Jim's fondness for woodworking and my desire to have an old seashore home lead us to the purchase of the house. A much bigger project than we could have imagined. It has been a challenge to say the least. Our latest project was doing the little Studio apartment. Had fun and from what people have told us, worthwhile.
Why Jim and Jinny Richardson chose Orleans
We are within walking distance to the town for shopping, the bike trail, and 2 bay beaches--Rock Harbor and Skaket Beach. Nauset Beach is on the other side of town but well worth the drive. Many nice places to eat right up the road. Shaws, Stop and Shop and Friends Market all in town.
What makes this Studio unique
There is a nice little deck off the back of the Studio overlooking the backyard and pond-home to many birds, turtles and fish. A Blue Heron lives here and maintains his domain. Parking is provided in the upper driveway.

It's the third time I've stayed with the Richardson's and they are the warmest and most welcoming hosts I know. Wonderful cozy apartment that's close to just about everything you need. An easy walk to Rock Harbor.
Husband and I arrived for 8 days of Christmas, to be near our families. The apartment was decorated with Christmas items and 2 poinsettas! Thank you so much! "holiday away from home."
We are glad we opted for the bedroom, as with large suitcases and big man, we needed the space. The heat was not a problem. We cooked in a few nights and the kitchen is amply stocked with utensils and pots. The electricity did go out on Christmas Day. Fortunately, we were scurrying between family houses and had a place to be. We returned to sleep and voila! heat back on.
The Richardsons were friendly and informative. We would definitely rent again. Thank you!
Great place ,great location, will recommend to anyone
My wife and I loved this place ! It is quiet,close to everything even walked to town for farmers market . Went down the street to rock harbor at low tide and walked out to see oysters being harvested it was very interesting . also went to first encounter beach it was wonderful. Took rides to outer cape to see the cape cod national seashore best place and beaches we have seen. Back at the cottage we really liked the two chairs down by the pond very nice,saw humming birds,very large blue herring in a tree things we don't get to see often. Loved sitting on deck with glass of wine very relaxing.
GREAT PLACE !!!
Thanks to Jim and Jinny wonderful hosts
Thank you so much for the glowing review. It was our pleasure to have you both here. Come again soon. Jinny
Still enjoying the pretty flowers and fresh veggies.
great home away from home
Jinny and Jim are great hosts. A wonderful apartment close to everything you need. A private deck and even a view of the pond in the back. Fully kitted kitchen and very quiet. Always a pleasure to stay here.
Cute and cozy studio
We recently spent two weeks in this well equipped cute studio. The hosts were gracious when the refrigerator broke down and by thw evening a new working refrigerator was in place. Wonderful view from the lovely deck. So centrally located. All in all a lovely experience.
Thank you both for your understanding. The frig that gave up the ghost was three weeks over the warranty. I bought it one year ago. It was never used
So hope you come back.
home away from home
I had a great two weeks at Jim and Jinny's. A super comfortable stay in the middle of winter and it felt like a home away from home. Everything you need as far as kitchen, internet, tv, etc, and the bed was super comfortable. Wonderful hosts, I would certainly come back.
