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 :)

Lovely home and host!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great Cape Cod Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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.

A delightful escape in a cute little town.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very diverse group of people ranging from pre-schooler to ... let's just say older. We all had a delightful time. It was the perfect mix of feeling at home and being on vacation. The location offers a wide variety of activities, being within easy driving driving distance to P-town, but also minutes walk away from a fantastic bike trail. The kitchen had everything we needed to make meals at home and we even tried out the local Mexican restaurant which was really great. All around, we very much enjoyed our stay and were grateful for how informative and helpful our host was. I would recommend this place to any group with sufficient #s to fill the home.

Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

Good location for access to Provincetown, National Seashore, Orleans, Chatham, Bay beaches, parks and lakes.

Comfortable accommodation, good back yard for games and a kind, considerate owner.

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.

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!
