  • Fantastic Beach House

    "We loved our stay at this house. We've rented six houses on the Cape over the years and this was definitely the best so far. The beach and water views from the veranda are outstanding and it was a joy to sit back and watch the sun going down (weather permitting). The house is well equipped and Dennis was a helpful and generous host. Barnstable village and the harbour are within walking distance. We particularly enjoyed the coffee at Nirvana and dining at The Dolphin restaurant. But the real star was the house, hopefully we'll be back one day!"

  • Winter winner

    "While our home 3 miles away was having major reconstruction, we (a couple) rented this cute house from October to mid-February. Yes, had Christmas and a tree. This is a busy summer rental part of town where houses are definitely cheek by jowl, but with so many houses closed up, we never heard anything other than the trash truck. House is small for a family, despite the number of beds, but in the summer that might not be an issue; it has one of the larger backyards in the neighborhood, and also more space for parking than any other house we saw. Easy walking to the beach, which we enjoyed doing even on a cold day. Five minutes drive to a supermarket, pharmacy, Walmart. House is fitted out completely with every utensil you'll ever want, including the always-needed ice cream scoop. Refrigeration and freezer situation is not totally desirable, but using the freezer/fridge in the basement should provide the additional space you'll need. We found the house easy to keep clean. There should be busloads of kids around for your own to play with. For our winter visit was used the word "cozy" frequently. Yes, this certainly is not a mansion, but if you can understand most rentals in the area are about the same size, sign up now."

  • Christmas 2015

    "How does one begin to describe the kind if priceless memories we made at Olcottage this Christmas? Part if me wants to not tell, so that perhaps we can never compete with another for the privilege of being in this special home. Lee and Brian gave of themselves in every respect. They were always accessible and good natured, answering each question with an understanding that "Christmas 2015" would never come again for our family and needed to be special. We had six children, three married, two anniversaries, six grandbabies three and under, and two military sons and their families coming in from deployment and all the angst and prayer that being apart, needs being together, to heal. Olcottage....and Lee.....brought us all together under one roof again and it could not have been better! We walked the beach and the the bike path, made our best ever Advent Wreath of sand and seashells and Olcottage holly, cooked together in the "un-yuppified" and updated-and-perfectly-appointed kitchen(...we have many foodies among us too! ). Lee and Brian even put a tree up for us! The place was impeccably clean! The beds were so comfortable and the linens were first-rate! It was a priceless time together.....love is in the walls of Olcottage It is one of those living houses that just wrapped us in its embrace....can anything better be said?"
