Convenient to all Brewster offerings: Bay, Nickerson, Blueberry Pond, Bike Trail
Our home is well-maintained, comfortable, clean and central to the best places in Brewster. We have a fenced-in, spacious and private South facing backyard with a low lying deck that is perfect for families with young children and for spending quiet afternoons soaking up the sun, tossing a ball, grilling, having a picnic or taking an outdoor shower.
We do not use any chemical fertilizers or pesticides in or out of the house. One of several reasons being that in the fall and winter, my wife, son and I also call this place home.
Our home has hardwood floors and lots of windows with a somewhat Mediterranean feel. It has WiFi throughout, basic cable, new 32” flat-screen TV, a DVD player, window AC unit, clothes washer / dryer, a well-equipped open kitchen with dishwasher, and even some board games and books from our own personal library.
You will be a half-mile walk or short bike ride away from the Ellis Landing bay beach. You will also be given an unrestricted pass to enjoy our private, sandy, freshwater association beach on Blueberry Pond (½ mile away), with an Old Town canoe at the ready for you on shore, to explore this bucolic pond, or to fish from.
A stone's throw from the back door is easy access to the Cape Cod Rail Trail, which links multiple towns together via a scenic bike / walk path. Picturesque Nickerson State Park is less than a mile down the bike path where you can discover the beautifully clean kettle ponds dotting the landscape.

Why Benton Jones chose Brewster
You will find that our home is perfectly situated to take advantage of all that Brewster has to offer. We are close to Cape Cod Bay, Nickerson State Park, Ocean Edge Resort, the Bike Trail and a private, sandy, association beach on Blueberry Pond. We live in a safe neighborhood and our driveway is off a private road.
What makes this House unique
I believe you will fall in love with our comfortable, open, sunny home with a private backyard and prime location. It is also a great advantage to be able to take our canoe out on Blueberry Pond at your convenience.

We rented this house for 1 week to stay down the Cape for the first time. Few things we were unhappy with... Only 1 AC unit in the house (master bedroom) We felt the description was misleading. Also tons of ants on the counters and around the sink. Front walkway weeds could have been pulled or trimmed so they don't brush against your arms as you are walking into the house. Otherwise we had a great time. Location is just a few minute drive away from the beach. Owners were pleasant to deal with.
I am sorry you felt our property was "Just OK!" We try very hard to make your stay easy and fun. I believe the problems you mention could have been resolved simply if we were given the opportunity to do so. May I respond to the items you were not happy with...
AC Units: We have two AC units. A powerful one is installed in the master bedroom, the second unit we do not install until we feel the weather is warm enough to call for it, or by request. This allows the window to be freely opened.
Sugar ants: Tiny sugar ants are sometimes tricky to eliminate completely, especially given that we do not use chemical pesticides in our home. A spray bottle of white vinegar and water is labeled under the sink to discourage invaders.
Front walkway weeds: I believe you are referring to the yellow flowers lining our walkway. It can be a little narrow, especially after a rain, but we put a lot of effort into maintaining a balanced feeling to our country home.
Again, I apologize these issues were a bother to you, and would have liked to have had the chance to make things "right" for you while you were here.
Wishing you the best on your next vacation,
Benton and Jana Jones
Fantastic Rental Central to Everything
We stayed at this house in the late part of June 2015. My brothers family and ours decided to get together on the Cape for a week. The owners of the home went out of their way for us educating us on where the best beaches were and other attractions to see as we are not people who frequent the Cape, with one of our families traveling from Colorado. The house had all the required kitchen amenities needed. The backyard was spacious and the kids loved running around out there. We had 2 dinners on the deck which also were fantastic. We only had to drive one minute to a very secluded beach per the directions of the owner. Perfect Beach I have to say. We went there everyday. Bedroom situation was perfect, the home was spacious. The home is also very close to the State Park for those who might want to have an adventure there and the owners also provided us with access to the private lake and the kids loved canoeing there and I was able to catch some nice fish. Should we find our way back to the Cape for something like this again we will certainly be seeing if we can stay there again.
Brewster is known as the "Sea Captains Town" because in the 1800's many sea captains made Brewster their home. With nine bay-side beaches, the pristine Nickerson State Park, and its clean freshwater ponds, you can understand why such worldly travelers settled here in Brewster. There is an endless variety of activities to choose from locally, including simply relaxing by the shore. I personally love to go to the bay and swim while the tide is rolling in over the hot sand flats. It is like taking a warm bath! The tide is quite dramatic here on the bay, raising and lowering 10 feet every six hours and moving about a third of a mile out and then back in again. There are only a few other places in the world where this phenomenon occurs: on some beaches in Nova Scotia and in Normandy, France. The combination of the warm water and the sand flats, with its many shallow puddles full of small sea life, make it a favorite spot for families with young children. Another geographical anomaly you will find here are “Kettle Ponds.” These are ponds that were created by glacial chunks that melted at the the end of the last ice-age. As the massive ice cubes melted, they made deep indentations in the landscape, giving the resulting ponds a kettle-like shape. Cliff Pond in Nickerson State Park, for example, is over 100 feet deep. This depth allows these ponds to connect directly to the aquifer, giving them a clean, blue hue, and with their sandy beaches, make them wonderful places to swim.
