Overview

Orleans Estate Rental Photos and Description

9 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, sleeps 19,

Chosen by Cape Cod Life magazine as one of the Top Ten places to stay on Cape Cod, our waterfront estate has breathtaking 180' views of Pleasant Bay and 300' of waterfront (this means just for YOU - not shared by the neighborhood.) plus you are directly on the water, not across the street or down the lane. Family owned the estate has been a landmark to Pleasant bay for 100 years. There are 3 acres of open lawn, 17 rms, 9 bedrms, 5 1/2 baths plus an enclosed outdoor shower with dressing room. Two wings of the house plus the 2nd floor have central air and the master bedrm has a window unit. This means 8 of the 9 bedrms have A/C. The 2001 kitchen features a 48' Sub-zero refrigerator, Corian counters, plus the estate includes the former servants wing with a 2nd fully equipped kitchen. There is lots of room for everyone to spread out with three living rooms, game room with pool table and darts, private deck on the beach, and mooring for your boat.The estate is on one of the highest points on Pleasant Bay offering magnificent views. You walk down a bluff to the waterfront below. There is a large crescent shaped beach at low tide. This gets covered as the tide comes in and a deck is on the waterfront to enjoy at high tide. Guests often rent kayaks, paddle boards and other water craft to explore the bay and the local islands and beaches. Swimming is always wonderful in the warm water. Available by the week in summer and off-season weekends for vacations and important family gatherings. WIFI.

The fabulous estate.....: This very special property is a landmark to the area and owned by the same family since it was built on the shores of Pleasant Bay 100 years ago. It had been lovingly cared for and maintained and matches the grandeur of times past with modern amenities. It is an ideal environment for multi generational family members to vacation together - or old or new friends with lots of children to spread out, enjoy each others company, yet find privacy and peace.

Down the end of an old cape cod road, then down the end of a private seashell driveway, there are no streets, traffic, or even pedestrians nearby. Pleasant Bay is reached by a pathway down the bluff in front of the house and features a deck to sit on.The Bay has a gradual sandy bottom, warm water great for swimming, floating on rafts, paddle boarding, sailing, kayaking, and walking along the shore.

Unforgettable Wedding Location!

  • 5 of 5
Although my fiancé and I are not from Cape Cod, we knew as soon as we got engaged that the Cape was the perfect destination for our wedding. Despite residing in Chicago we researched from afar and narrowed our selection to 10 different venues/locations to visit the following month. Although we saw some amazing places, we knew in our heart the winner would be the Winslow Estate and upon arriving for our tour and driving up the entrance way, our decision was instantly made even before we got out of the car. Our criteria was simple: we wanted our ceremony and reception at the same location, preferably outside, where our wedding party was also able to stay through the weekend and the Winslow Estate accommodated all the above.

To say the estate is beautiful is a complete understatement. The house itself, the yard, the views of Pleasant Bay are all breathtaking. Although I’ll admit the price was a bit of a surprise at first, we can say now it was 100% worth it. Once we decided that the Winslow Estate was right for us, the owners (Ken and Ginger) were incredibly helpful, responsive and supportive throughout the entire planning process; always available to answer questions via phone or e-mail or provide recommendations as needed. Given that we were planning a wedding from Chicago, this level of support was certainly needed! We were able to have ourselves and our entire wedding party sleep and stay at the estate leading up to the wedding. We had a smaller guest count (around 85) that all fit comfortably during both the ceremony on one side of the yard and then under a covered tent during the reception on the other side.

I’d recommend the Winslow Estate to anyone without hesitation whether for weddings, family reunions, etc. Our memories from our wedding day are priceless, largely due to the location we held it at.

Thank you Ken and Ginger for an amazing experience!

Amazing week

  • 5 of 5
The Gentle House was amazing for my wedding week. My husband and I were able to move in Wednesday and start the preparation for our wedding day that was on Saturday. My whole family came on Thursday and enjoyed the luxuries of the house and the beautiful scenery. The house was the perfect size for the 18 of us because we were not on top of each other and there was plenty of space to relax or enjoy the outdoors. The house had EVERYTHING you need for the week like linens, kitchen needs, laundry, games, beach toys, and cable / Internet. Everybody who attended the wedding could not believe the unbelievable view over the water and the amenities the house provided (clean bathrooms and patio to converse on). Ken and Ginger were a pleasure to work with and were very accommodating with anything needed. The week was amazing and well worth the cost of renting for the week.

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL!!

  • 5 of 5
We spent a fabulous week at Gentle Heritage with the whole family...age range 5 yrs old to 75! We have rented other homes on the Cape over the years and especially enjoyed our stay here. Ken and Ginger take such good care of the house and property with attention to the details. Each room is comfortable, clean, and very nicely decorated. We did a fair amount of cooking and were happy that the kitchens were well equipped. The two upstairs rooms are very charming and have beautiful views of the property and the bay! I love that there were fresh flowers on the table when we arrived!

We swam and went kayaking on the bay, played pool, relaxed in the lounge chairs on the patio and sat in the evening just looking at the stars. The property is big enough for everyone to have their own space and our hosts were so helpful with anything we needed but not at all intrusive.

We took their recommendation and had a chef come to cook for us two separate nights of our stay. What a treat!! It's hard to go out with 19 people and having someone come prepare a wonderful meal was perfect! They also clean it up!

This property is unlike any other on the Cape. Such a grand home and a spectacular view. It's no wonder so many people have chosen to get married here. We enjoyed every moment of our family vacation and would love to come back again. Thank you Ken and Ginger!

Fabulous Wedding Location!

  • 5 of 5
Our daughter and her husband selected this magnificent property for their May, 2014 wedding on Cape Cod. As the rental was from Wednesday- Wednesday, it enabled the groom's out-of-town family to stay at the house, as well as time for the vendors to set up. The owners were fantastic. Tie historic property was clean and well maintained. The site guidelines were clear and the owners were responsive to our queries. Located high on a bluff, he reception tent framed gorgeous Pleasant Bay in a spectacular way we never could have imagined. We had both the ceremony and reception at the site - convenient for all. This venue allowed for more flexibility than a resort, and we loved that as well. We would not hesitate to recommend this wedding site to friends and relatives. We can't imagine a more perfect setting for a family celebration! Keep up the good work, Gentle Heritage!

Our group was looking for a Cape escape and found the perfect place in this beautiful home. The house is very warm and inviting, even in a drizzling April rain. The location and the views are spectacular. All of the rooms are wonderfully appointed, the nine of us each found the perfect bedroom to suit our individual needs, both for the early risers, and those catching up on their beauty rest. The kitchen was stocked with all of the utensils and cookware that we needed, and it's a five minute drive to Orleans for lunch or dinner as well. Ken and Ginger were lovely and easy to work with; we can't wait to go back next year.

Exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5
Our three children, their three spouses and seven children, and an au pair (16 in all) joined us for a week together that had just the right opportunities! The house itself is a one-of-a-kind classic, with expansive room we all enjoyed. The Cape offered us great choices for our interests, food and recreation and learning, sometimes as separate households, sometimes all together. We came to "create memories," our purpose well fulfilled!

The estate is in South Orleans equal distance between Chatham and Orleans. Chatham's beatiful Main Sreet is noted for its quaint Cape Cod feeling and variety of shops including restaurants, antiques, clothing, and surf shops. Pleasant Bay is excellent for swimming, sailing, fishing, wind surfing, kayaking, motor boating (your own or rent one) water skiing, or just walking the shoreline. The estate comes with a mooring and a skiff and oars.

Nauset Beach in Orleans has big waves for body surfing, boogie or skim boarding, surfboarding and surf casting for bluesfish and bass.

Skaket Beach in Orleans is noted for the warm salt water flats, sand bars, clamming, and is always a favorite for children. You can walk seemingly forever into Cape Cod Bay when the tide is out or just swim sand bar to sand bar when it is in.
