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!

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!

Perfect Vacation Rental!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is perfect for a summer Cape Cod vacation! It is a quiet and relaxing environment, and just a short walk from the beach. I stayed with a group of 6 adults and 3 toddlers; there was plenty of space for all of us. We had a wonderful time! Can't wait to go back!

My favorite Happy Place!

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is the place I go in my mind when I need to relax or decompress. It is the perfect distance to walk, bike or car ride to the beach, Orleans center, bike paths or shops. One of it's beauties is the set back from the street giving a quiet privacy not easily found in most Cape rentals. The modern upgrades are balanced by true Cape heritage features. Being able to bird watch and listen from the second story sky lights is so cool...a real treat!

Perfect Vacation Rental!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the Cranberry Cottage! We had our infant daughter with us and stayed with another couple and their 2 young children and everyone was more than comfortable. The accommodations were perfect and we walked to the beach every day, several times. The owners were very easy to work with and the property lent itself to all that we were looking for and more! We would certainly stay here again in the future!
