About Allison Argo

Allison is an Emmy award-winning documentary filmmaker, whose films focus on endangered wildlife (ArgoFilms, Ltd). Jim is a noted Cape Cod painter (JimHolland-Art). We share a deep love for Cape Cod. Allison grew up here and Jim has lived here for 20 years.

Allison Argo purchased this House in 2014

Why Allison Argo chose Brewster

We absolutely fell in love with this house! The wide pine planks on the floors, the European kitchen, the gracious windows...It has old world charm, but is fresh and bright (no dark, musty old bedrooms or moldy showers!). The location is wonderful: we're one mile from our favorite Bay beach, one mile from Orleans center, within walking distance from the beautiful ponds of Nickerson State Park and our amazing bike path, which stretches for 22 miles from Dennis to Wellfleet. We're halfway down the Cape, which means we're only 20 miles from the tip (Provincetown).

What makes this House unique

Our location is excellent. The fact that the house has an additional studio apartment means the property can be turned into a family compound! With a large, private backyard and outdoor shower, it's a great place for the clan to gather. It's also an extremely private and romantic setting for a more intimate experience :)

                                                              This was a beautiful, extremely comfortable and well located property in the heart of the Cape. The property was very clean, decorated with beautiful art and furnishings, and had everything you could want in a holiday home. Satellite tv and wi-fi throughout the house were an added bonus, especially for the ocassional lazy rainy day. The location was centrally located and was surrounded by wonderful local shops and restaurants. The owners were fantastic to deal with and responded very quickly to any queries before and during the visit. We would definitely return to the property and recommend it as a perfect place to stay in Cape Cod.

                                                              There were 11 of us, including 6 children and a large dog. The studio was bonus accommodation for grandparents or those who need a little quiet time.

                                                              My family and I stayed in this home for a week this summer. Not only is there plenty of space for our entire extended family (slept 13 with us in it), but it is charmingly decorated with some of the owner's artwork. The rooms are large and there are 3 bathrooms (2 on the first floor, 1 on the second). It was a quick jaunt to the beach (I ran one day) and close to the town center. It's located right on 6A so getting anywhere is really easy.

                                                              There is a large backyard where we had fires in our own fire pit, played badminton and grilled out. Additionally, there are laundry services on site which was hugely helpful with all of our beach towels and bathing suits. There is also a clothesline in the backyard for natural drying.

                                                              The owners are truly delightful; very willing to help with anything. They only live about .5 miles away so getting a hold of them is not difficult. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone!

                                                              Wonderful!

                                                              Loved everything about this place. Comfortable rooms, plenty of space, great back yard. Close to beaches and the lovely village of Orleans. We will definitely be coming back.

                                                              This is a great place for a large group vacation week on the Cape. A perfect location only a short jaunt to to the beach or a couple of minutes by car to Orleans. The rooms are all very spacious and the kitchen is very well stocked, even for large group meals. My favorite part was the very large and secluded back yard where we enjoyed croquet by day and sing-a-longs at night. Organizing the family for a return next year.

                                                              Wonderful place

                                                              Argosy is only one minute from Crosby Landing beach (a Cape Cod favorite) and one minute from the wonderful town of Orleans. We're 6 miles from Nauset Beach -- and the bike path and Nickerson State Park are only a short stroll from the house. Provincetown, the tip of the Cape is 30 minutes away. Our adorable bowling alley is only a mile away, as are a great selection of restaurants and bars. Be sure to make time for a drive-in movie -- and visit the drive-in on the weekends for the best flea market around. There is so much to do, you'll wish you had more time! Antiquing, seafood, exploring the ocean and Bay, swimming, surfing, walking, sightseeing, miniature golf, visiting quaint towns like Chatham, Wellfleet -- and Brewster!
