Overview

About the property

3BR/2BA Cape Vacation Home On 3 Private Acres, On The Coonamessett River

Enjoy this large 3BR/2BA, beautifully updated, home on three private acres backing up to the Coonamessett River on Cape Cod. Beds sleep eight inc. the queen sized sleeper sofa (plus in addition there are 3 queen sized blow-up mattresses). We (Owners) live in AZ and don't get to the Cape as much as we used to now that we have two very small children. We have other rentals on the Cape, including two other cottages nestled on this 3-acre parcel (those have long term annual tenants), and many in AZ, and have now added this to the list so others can enjoy this amazing property. The large kitchen has more than everything you need, and is gorgeous, with stone counters, a big island with a vegetable sink, and a glass backsplash. There are two large living spaces (living rooms upstairs and downstairs) provide ample space for reading, playing games, or dancing! There is a separate dining room (in addition to the breakfast bar). There are two bedrooms on the main floor and one add'l bedroom downstairs. Enjoy your morning coffee in the lovely sun room or on the back deck. The kitchen is very nice with gas cooking, stainless steel appliances, quartz counters, a breakfast bar, and lots of dishes. This house is large and very comfortable. The master bedroom (main floor) has a queen bed (and 46' flat screen), the second bedroom (main floor) has two extra long twins, and the downstairs bedroom has a queen. The downstairs sofa is a queen pullout, and we also have three queen air mattresses. 46' flatscreen also located in downstairs living area. We installed central HVAC in June 2015! You are a short drive to Silver Beach, and to Falmouth Heights and Surf Drive beaches. Main Street, just a short drive away, has plenty of wonderful restaurants and shopping, and a wonderful library with fun activities for kids. Woods Hole and the ferry to Martha's Vineyard is also a short drive from here. You will love this house!!!

About BJ Gibbons

My husband and I purchased this property in 2004 - because there is no other property like it. The appraiser had to go out 25 miles to comp it, as there was no other 3 acre parcel with three houses on the River to comp it with. We had our daughter in 2009 and our son in 2012 and have found that we don't get to the Cape as much as we used to. I am an attorney and real estate Broker in Tucson AZ and my husband is a real estate investor and mortgage guy. We have about 30 or so rentals, but this house has been mostly used for our personal use over the years. We love to feed the ducks, who are always at our property (even in winter!) and sit and watch the river. With that said, it's only a couple of miles to Main Street and all the wonderful food and shopping it offers, and to any beach.

Why BJ Gibbons chose Cape Cod

It's close to everything yet so very peaceful.

What makes this house unique

The house has the advantage of offering a safe and beautiful place for kids to play, because we are on a very large parcel away from any traffic, yet it is so close to everything.

Everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Loved the house as it had everything we needed. My elderly mom joined us and needed a first floor bedroom and bathroom along with central air. The deck was huge, the location was quiet and close to everything. The house is spacious and there is plenty of room to spread out when needed. We borrowed the two adult bikes and took them on the bike trail. The house had everything we needed - bike locks and air pump, dishes and utensils for every need, towels, and my son said he slept on the most comfortable sheets he has ever slept on.

Great house

  • 4 of 5

We truly enjoyed our time at the Cape. The house was very comfortable and spacious. The big deck was fabulous and we were able to BBQ. The kids loved their time on the east coast. Thank you making our vacation a success.

Fantastic house and week!!

  • 5 of 5

Great cape house in Falmouth on a very quiet street, but conveniently located and an easy drive to all attractions. The house itself is was perfect for us with two couples and two kids, and having central air was a nice bonus. The kitchen was great and had everything we needed and we enjoyed the back deck which overlooked the river. We had a perfect week and would definitely come back again on our next cape trip.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely home in a beautiful, yet convenient location in Falmouth. The house is comfortable, roomy, and well-appointed; the owners are generous and thoughtful in what they supply. We are a group that has stayed in many places over the last 15 years, and 17 Cranberry Lane is unanimously our #1. We plan to return next summer.
