About Lucy Hersey
It all began when our father was a child and had a sickly cousin. The family doctor suggested the fresh air of Cape Cod. And so, three mothers, Flossie, Helen, and Ruth, brought their husbands and children to the Cape each summer from New Jersey. This was back in the early 30's when they had kerosene stoves, oil lamps, wells, and windmills. Life was simple. Then in the 1950's, beach erosion was alarming and shoreline cottages could be purchased easily. In 1958, our father purchased the cottage and over the years we have always called it home. Three sons and a daughter now share in the care of the Calderwood Cottage. We enjoy spending time here every summer, and we hope that you may too.

One of the most enjoyable rentals we've ever had on Cape Cod!
This truly private and unspoiled part of the Cape made for a very restful and romantic vacation experience. The views from the house are breathtaking and the walks along the beach were healing and beautifull. The house is very comfortable with plenty of places to curl up with good books and the kitchen inspired us to make at least one main meal at home each day. The house is also very clean and beyond charming. The central location in Orleans allowed for easy daytrips to Plimoth Plantation in the south and Provincetown in the north. Highlights of our trip included whale watching in Provincetown and seeing so many seals on Nauset Beach. The owner is also very accommodating. We hope to return next year.
Thanks so much for your great review and for staying at the cottage. Knowing how much you enjoyed the cottage means so much to us. We appreciate, as well, how nicely you left the cottage. And so very nice to meet you. Thank you, Lucy
