WATERFRONT WITH DECK & SANDY BEACH ; FAMILY VACATION PARADISE;

Falmouth House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrms, 2 baths, sleeps 6, Washer/Dryer, Well equipped Kitchen, Linen

Waterfront home with private sandy beach and large deck near Waquoit Bay. Rent kayaks or canoes nearby, go biking, hiking, fishing, shell fishing, or relax on the deck. Tranquil family haven with wonderful scenery, marine life, birds, salt marshes. Navigable waterway leads to Vineyard Sound. Absolutely one of the most beautiful areas on Cape Cod. Large gated deck overlooks panoramic easterly views of Childs River and scenic Washburn Island. Observe nature's wonders in the water, on the land, and in the sky. Comfortable living area, modern kitchen, washer/dryer, 2 full baths, Wireless internet, cable TV.

Other Helpful Information:: A short walk to the public beach. (no life guard) There's a three-ring binder at the house chock-full of information about the area, including where to find kayaks, canoes, bicycles to rent, local events from concerts to fairs, restaurants, and nature walks.... Favorites activities include: a paddle across the river to explore Washburn Island... A sunset trip to Nobska light (1/2 hour scenic drive by car).... Ice Cream at Smitty's or Ben and Bill's Chocolate Emporium... Dining for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or just because you are craving fried clams.... An afternoon of digging clams (shellfish license available from Falmouth Town Hall) or catching fish (license is needed for salt-water fishing) followed by a nap on the warm sand..... After you enjoy your stay, please don't forget to sign our guest book.

Some Background:: The cottage at 228 Edgewater Drive East, was purchased by Jack and Ruth Tucker in 1962. At that time the house was unheated, rustic, and was on cinder blocks with a crawl space underneath to keep the oars and life jackets. They rented it out all but two weeks each summer that they used with their six children. Jack enjoyed taking his family fishing and clamming. His fishing, though not always successful, was certainly memorable. He made great clam chowder (with a Boston accent-- chowdah). They made improvements on the house as they could, winterized it, and eventually stopped renting it. The six children and their families began managing it in 1990, after Jack's death, and began renting it again. They made some more improvements connecting a downstairs bedroom and play area. It remains the haven that Jack and Ruth intended for family vacations. A place to relax and enjoy the sand, sun, and water.

Wow!

  • 5 of 5
What a great week! We had a family of 6 and had plenty of room. Comfy beds and well equipped kitchen. It was nice that linens were provided. We went all over the Cape but our favorite spot was right here. Whether sitting on the deck or looking for critters in the water it was relaxing and fun at the same time. We even got to see a diving duck and a seagull fight over an eel! Carolyn and her husband were very nice and renting the property was easy. Great spot.
