We grew up in Massachusetts and currently live in Lexington, MA with our three young boys, twins that are 9 and their 'baby' brother who's 5. We have been life-long visitors and explorers of Cape Cod.

John Joseph purchased this house in 2012

About 10 years ago, we began to fall in love with the Orleans area and the Outer Cape. It was the unspoiled beaches, the ruggedness of the terrain, and the recreation options that caught our attention. We knew we wanted to make it part of our lives forever. The whole family, especially our children, ages 9, 9, and 5, fell in love with 20 Hofe Road the moment we entered the home and we hope you do too. It's a sanctuary - located on 1.3 acres at the end of a cul de sac and just a lazy stroll to Skaket Beach, which we consider to be the best beach on Cape Cod. In this home it's easy to get away from it all, yet stay connected to the beaches, shopping, night life, food, and recreation that Orleans and the outer cape have to offer. It's just a short drive to the cliffs, dunes, and surf of Nauset Beach and the gorgeous Cape Cod National Seashore. We never get bored of exploring Cape Cod's beauty and we invite you to share this experience.

This home has a unique feel. Tucked away in a wooded area, the home immediately made us feel relaxed. Inside, the home is detailed with natural and painted woodwork that creates such a comfortable and peaceful feeling. It immediately made us feel at home. But I have to say that the spacious yard (part of 1.3 acres of land) creates a feeling that we have really escaped from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. An occasional rooster crowing from a nearby home just adds to that experience.

If you're looking for a place to call home that you want to return to look no further. My family has vacationed here several times and we are looking forward to our next trip. The property is quiet and private and has a large backyard for the kids to play. The bedrooms have ample space and the beds are very comfortable. The family room is cozy and is a perfect place to relax after a day on the beach. Everything is well maintained and clean which definitely helps reduce the stress of renting a place. Summer can't get here quick enough!

Hi John!

We had a great vacation! The house was lovely and everything was in order. We were traveling with our two preschool aged children and our in-laws, and the layout of the house was perfect - no one felt crowded and everyone had their own space. The kids enjoyed the games - that's a nice feature. The only drawback were the mosquitos - but it seems like they were bad everywhere on the cape.
