GREAT VACATION HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
This house is even better than it appears in the pictures! My family from Ohio, Florida and New York all gathered here to celebrate my son's wedding. It was like being in our own home. Lots of room for everyone to have their own space, beautiful grounds and pathway to the lake where we had access to a canoe and kayak. Everything is just as it's described in the rental details. In addition, the owner was extremely accommodating. The town of Falmouth is quaint and lovely. We highly recommend this property and look forward to going back ourselves.

GREAT FAMILY VACATION SPOT

  • 5 of 5
What a great retreat for a family vacation! The property is unique on a very clean fresh water pond and easy access to ocean beaches. Falmouth is less crowded than other parts of the Cape. Plenty of things to do and great restaurants. John Salerno is a most gracious and accommodating host that helped make the vacation a special memory!

THE CAPE COD CHARM WE WERE LOOKING FOR!

  • 4 of 5
We spent our week here preparing for our wedding at the Owl's Nest! It couldn't have been a more perfect week. The yard was magnificent, the view of the pond was beautiful, and it kept me at peace staying at the house while I prepared the wedding. Getting up in the morning before the other 8 house guests to enjoy my coffee in the sun room was the best part of my mornings. The location is perfect to downtown and the beach. John was an absolute pleasure to work with and made sure he accommodated all of our needs. We enjoyed the Falmouth Raw Bar and the Boathouse with our guests from out of town, and having the ferry to Martha's Vineyard so close made our day trip so easy! We enjoyed our evenings downstairs by the pond around a fire reliving the days' events. My wedding guests were stunned by the beauty of the property, and we made lasting memories. Great place for my husband and I to start our married life together!

GREAT PLACE FOR A FAMILY GET-TOGETHER

  • 5 of 5
Had a wonderful combined family vacation with fun-filled activities for ages 15 to 70. The owner couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. Plenty of room, beautiful outdoor gardens, great water toys...we never even made it to Old Silver Beach. Great swimming in the lake.
Relaxed every morning on the front lawn with coffee and a book, then meandered down to the lake for an afternoon swim.
Plenty of room to cook delicious meals including fresh fish from the fish market and veggies from the farmers market.
Would recommend this for anybody who is looking for a laid-back place to vacation.

OWL'S NEST HOME - WONDERFUL!!

Owl's Nest Home - WONDERFUL!!
  • 5 of 5
We had the pleasure of staying at Owl's Nest for 2 weeks this summer. The home was the perfect size for 4 adults and 4 kids. There were PLENTY of rooms to escape to. A wonderful kitchen to cook and hang out in. The kitchen had everything you can imagine in terms of cookware, dining-ware, linens, etc. There is a terrific den for the kids to play and watch TV. The beautiful living room with sun room attached were just lovely and these rooms became the adult hang out rooms at the beginning and the end of the day - so peaceful. The bedrooms were all a great size and the bedrooms on the second floor all had amazing water views. Lying in bed on the first floor bedroom; you could see the sun rise! I loved that. The home is appointed with all nice bed linens, blankets, pillows, etc.
The grounds for the home are gorgeous. All the yards around the home are beautifully manicured. The patio, also a popular hang out area is surrounded by lovely flowering potted plants and greenery. The grill was great and the patio has 2 tables w. umbrella's. The pond access for the home was terrific. We enjoyed fishing, kayaking and taking swims across the pond. The water in so clean and clear.
We took daily trips to all the local beaches. We loved Menauhant Beach which is only a 10 minute drive from Owl's Nest. You MUST frequent Smitty's Ice Cream - we stopped there almost every-time we drove home from the beach. Try the grape-nut ice-cream!
The owner John was an absolute delight to deal with. John, thank you for opening your home to our 2 families and being so helpful.
We would love to rent again in the future!! Lydia and Scott
