Recent Orleans reviews

  • Back home

    "We used this house for a reunion with family near where we used to live in Orleans. It is a very comfortable house! We particularly enjoyed the screen room - ate most of our dinners out there, comfortably with 7 people, easily fitting more guests for dinner some evenings, and entertained old friends for afternoon visits. The kitchen is pretty well set up for cooking, utensil-wise, and is a good space for more than one person working. The center island was a good place for people to sit and enjoy hors-douvres while meals were prepared and the open living/dining/kitchen area was also a great space for all of us to be without feeling cramped. The walk to the bay is pleasant and easy. The peaceful location of this house and setting on the lot gives a very secluded feel, but is only about a mile from the center of town. Our only criticism would be the lack of a front walk. Older folks may have trouble with the slightly uneven footing. Overall, an excellent place to stay for our time in Orleans! We had a great stay in comfort, and will try to get this house again for our next get together!"

  • The ideal home for your summer vacation

    "We have stayed at several homes in Orleans and Chatham over the past 10 years. We even owned our own home in Nantucket (for vacations). This home is one of the very best we have stayed in. High quality furnishings in a home that is well maintained by the owners. The location is one of it's great attributes: a short walk across the street to watch Cape Ball (and isn't summer about the beach and baseball?). I rode a bike to the beaches almost every day. Skaket (Cape Cod Bay), is 2.2 miles and the Ocean at Nauset Beach is 3.1 miles. One of the big values of the home is all the things they provide that most other rentals do not and they add up to a significant benefit: Linens for the beds, towels for showers and towels for the beach in great condition, beach chairs and umbrellas, beach toys, fully stocked kitchen (plates, plastic ware, utensils, everything we needed and more), DVDs...we used to load down a car to bring all the "stuff" we needed. Not so this year. Great TVs in the LR, Kitchen, Master BR and basement...great for a rainy day or keeping track of the Red Sox, the Tour de France or The British Open. The hot tub came in handy the first day that was a bit cool...they have it maintained and monitored each week. And the best ...a hammock that was great for peaceful reading or napping. A great big yard that is well maintained and great for a game of yard bocce. We had a full house of kids and adults and everyone had a great time and will be back next year. There are stairs for upper and lower bedrooms so it may not be ideal for those sensitive about very young kids. We had puzzles on the dining room table as well as the family room....Great big deck with big family size table and chairs, big grill, Can't think of anything that was missing, Ceiling fans and window air conditioners in many rooms to make sleeping on those very hot and humid evenings tolerable. One of the big assets of the home are the owners who were there to make sure everything was as good as it could be. We had a couple of items that went south and they were there to make sure they were repaired and fixed within hours - we didn't have to worry about anything. Thanks Jim."

  • Exactly what we needed.

    "Everyone involved with this house makes sure that you are getting exactly what you need. They are clearly flexible with their efforts. They want to make every guest feel at home and do a very good job at it."

  • The Best of East Orleans By Far!

    "Just spent another week at the Friendship House. This was our 6th year in a row and each year we say it was our best stay yet! This home is just like having your own Cape Cod property, it is truly a home away from home. The house is so comfortable and everything you could possibly need is provided. David, the owner is truly a warm and welcoming individual and he is always so helpful. It's reassuring to know David is right on the property in the event you need him. It was very difficult to leave The Friendship House and Cape Cod, but knowing what a wonderful place the Friendship House is, it will make us look forward to our next stay."
