More Guest Comments!: ''We had a great week and many thanks for our ''deluxe'' accommodations. My son commented on the web site and was afraid he would loose me to your home. It is very much my style and we couldn't have been happier. We found your home to be comfortable, spacious, and felt very safe there. My 80 year old Mother was even impressed by the way she was able to easily get around.'' Rose, Casey & Josephine - Troy, NY - July 2008
'We had a wonderful time at the Cape and enjoyed your home very much. You provided everything to make our stay quite comfortable. The weather wasn't the greatest but we are pretty used to that living in New England. We were able to do all of the things we wanted to do and also had a couple of really nice beach days. We would definitely recommend your home to others. Thanks for everything.' Kosta & Gail - Worcester, MA - July 2008

Guestbook comments from the owner
My wife and I (+ son and friend for 2 days) recently spent a week at this property. Our first visit to Cape Cod and our first trip with Chloe, our 9 year old lab/pit-bull mix. We chose the perfect place - comfortable, homey, dog friendly (fenced in back yard - perfect for Chloe) tastefully equipped with furniture to match the home's character.
This home is centrally located and it was easy to get around the Cape. We took the opportunity to visit most of the major towns/areas. Our favorite was Wellfleet, mainly because it had managed to keep its village feel, its old-world charm, and the harbor had not been converted into a modern marina.
We also took Chloe on long walks to Coast Guard Beach (30 minutes drive to Eastham but well worth it - dogs need to be on a lead at all times). We managed to avoid the high summer (starts June 19th) car parking fees of $15! Another highlight of the stay was Marion's Pie Shop (mentioned in the welcome folder). Best pies outside of the UK :-) .
Overall, a comfortable, relaxing week spent in a well equipped, tastefully decorated, charming home.
