Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a terrific time during our long weekend stay. The house is immaculate and so conveniently located to many things, including walking to Skaket Beach, riding to the Cape Cod Rail Trail and grabbing dinner at ABBA.

We loved it and would definitely stay again!

Skaket Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Cranberry Cottage. We were a group of 8 ranging from grandparents to 2 year-olds and had plenty of room. The cottage is perfectly located between the best family beach on the Cape - Skaket and the town of Orleans. Awesome lobster rolls at Rock Harbor and just a few hundred feet from the Bike Path. The owners responded quickly to any questions we had. The kids loved the large stock of games, books, beach toys and the large lawn. The parents loved the well appointed kitchen, comfy beds and the large deck off of the living room. We would definitely recommend this home.

We loved having coffee on the deck each morning while listening to all the bird songs. Cranberry cottage brought back memories of childhood vacations on Cape Cod. It has all the amenities w/o losing it's Cape Cod charm. TY Ken & Laura!

Would rent again in a heartbeat. Perfect location from Skaket Beach. No need to wait in a long line of cars to the beach. 12 min walk pulling a buggy of beach supplies. 2 min drive when we were lazy and got up early enough to beat the traffic. We loved it.

Great Cape Cod Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Cranberry Cottage was a great location - close to Skaket beach, town. Had a nice yard for playing, privacy and a lovely deck and grill for outdoor meals. The Cottage itself was very clean, updated and cozy. Check in and check out was very easy. Beach gear (chairs, umbrellas, toys) were available (as were some games, kids books, movies), making it much easier to travel without carrying all of the extras. The cottage can sleep up to 8 people, but that would require 3 to sleep in the King bed and two per each Full bed. We were a group of 4 and were very comfortable; up to 7 would also be comfortable, 8 cozy. We had a wonderful week there and would definitely return again!

The Cranberry Cottage was a perfect place for a weekend getaway on the cape. I stayed here with another couple over Memorial Day weekend. While there were only 4 of us for the weekend the cottage could definitely could sleep up to 8.

The house was very clean and updated, with quality appliances, furniture and all the pots, pans, dishware and kitchen utensils you could need. These details made all the difference for us since we cooked a lot our own meals and made use of the wonderful grill and deck quite a bit. It's easy to tell that the owners thought of all of the little things to ensure that you felt at home at the cottage - the house was updated in all the ways you need it to be, while still maintaining that cape house charm.

The location of the house is perfect. Its far enough off the beaten path that there's no traffic noise or loud neighbors, and close enough that you can walk to the beach. We were also only a few minutes away from the restaurants and stores in Orleans.

We all loved our stay here and would definitely recommend the Cranberry Cottage!
