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.

A Gem

  • 5 of 5
Our family of eight stayed at Owls Nest for one week toward the end of the summer in 2014 and lucked into great weather.
The house, or perhaps I should call it an estate, was perfect. Beautiful gardens and plantings surround the house and yard. There are scenic water views from every room! The house plan was ideal for multiple cooks in the kitchen, for having separate areas if children are sleeping so adults can make some noise, and a quiet office for a bit of work. You could enjoy games in the lovely grassy side yard with a large patio and tables. Or have a cook-out in the back w/ barbecue, patio and tables.
The owner, John, has a wonderful attitude of welcoming families and their pets and having everything available that you might need so you can relax.
The pond and beach are delightful for swimming although a bit rocky so I suggest bringing water shoes. There are rock steps down to the beach and that might be a little difficult for older people but were fine for our family. Once down the hill there is a grass area for lounging with a fire-pit. John provides a kayak, canoe, and sailboat and we thoroughly enjoyed all three. Thanks for sharing your house John…it was a fantastic vacation!

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.
