|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Relax on the veranda with views of Quissett Harbor and the Knob. If you are in the mood for a swim this quintessential Cape Cod house is just minutes from its private beach, which is shared with two other families. Private beach is very sandy and shallow for long distance. Ideal for young children. In addition to the natural beauty of the Quissett Harbor area, revel in our surrounding perennial gardens. Award winning decor is stunning, yet comfortably relaxed. Accommodations are extensive. Come experience a vacation to remember.
We had a wonderful week at her lovely home. There were 9 adults (college/ high school friends with significant others) and 5 kids (under 6) and the home was welcoming and spacious with room for everyone, not to mention the bonus of having the large barn where the kids could run around on a rainy day. The children loved spending the afternoons playing in the beautiful backyard while we could relax and watch them from the comfort of the back porch. It was nice being set back from the road away from traffic and at the same time, a short walk to a nice kid-friendly beach and a short drive from Woods Hole. Also, the caretaker was friendly and very helpful in answering any questions that came up during our visit. The adults got to catch up at night at the large dining room table with drinks and board games. We had a wonderful week and look forward to returning.
My wife and I brought six of our kids, their spouses and significant others for a weeklong celebration of a major birthday during the last week of July, 2013. The house offered everything we could have asked for including privacy for each of the married couples, lovely grounds with beautiful flora and landscape, a spectacular view looking down to Quissett Harbor and a surprise game room which kept many of our adult kids entertained in the evenings. The wonderful thing was that noone felt that they had to go out to be entertained. We had delightful family dinners at the expansive dining room table; lazy afternoons just reading and talking; and opportunities to just walk, run and explore. It was a truly memorable week. We would definitely come back.
My family (9 of us) stayed in this great house for 2 weeks in August. The house was clean, comfortable and very spacious. The fact that there was a master bedroom on the ground floor was unusual vs other rentals we looked at on the Cape, but was perfect for our family. The house is in a very quiet location about a mile from Woods Hole and 2 miles from Falmouth Center - both locations that have restaurants, coffee shops and great areas to walk around. The house has access to a small beach about a 5 minute walk away which was great to go to at the end of the day and watch the sunsets ! Overall, the house was excellent and i'd recommend it for families looking for a quiet, relaxing, and comfortable home to stay at on Cape Cod.
After 10 days of perfect weather and a perfect time with our family, no one wanted to leave Hidden House.
It amazes me how a vacation rental can be such an elegant home to its transient guests. From the moment you drive up the lane lined with hydrangeas, you know you are about to have a special experience. Beautifully manicured lawns, flanked by abundant rose bushes is a perfect setting for this gracious Cape Cod home. We kept the house filled with flowers from the garden and dined either on the expansive porch as the sun set or in the dining room, which easily seats 14, Having spent much time in England, we so appreciated dining on the expansive Portmeirion dinner service...who leaves such fine things in a vacation rental? The house is rambling and though it has seven bedrooms, we only used four and each of us was able to find a favorite spot to claim as our own. This is a house where families can gather inside or out, be as active or inactive as they choose, spend time alone or together and generally enjoy each other.Thank you, Hidden House, for such a wonderful opportunity.
Lucky are those who are able to call this magical Cape Cod home theirs for their vacation time. We stayed last year and are counting the days until we return with our children, grandchildren and sister and brother-in-law. There will still be plenty of room for a few invited friends to stop by for an overnight stay. Our ideal holiday consists of endless relaxing, great meals eaten together, lazy afternoons and and plenty of opportunity for playing sports. This exceptional property provides perfect space for all our needs. Gracious rooms with wonderful hand-painted walls allow for time alone or groups hanging out together and the well-appointed kitchen accommodates one of our favorite things, several people cooking together. The sheltered beach is perfect for our family that ranges in ages from 70 to two years old. Leave your need for a television and constant news behind you. This is a house where memories will be made and you will want to return again and again.
This place is fantastic. Everything about it. View from the veranda; beach a short walk away; access to swimming, boating, and lots more; decoration; great kitchen and dining facilities; lots of space.
We rent a house somewhere almost every year and this is by far the most charming and pleasant, with designer details everywhere. I especially love the dining room, which is beautiful with a large table and very nice china with lots of matching serving pieces, important for me because I like to cook gourmet candlelight meals for the family.
The first time we used this house some years ago was a family gathering. The secluded beach was perfect for the grandchildren while the other family members liked to swim out to the raft for sun bathing and diving. The kids played boccie and badmitten on the lawn next to the porch and everyone played whiffleball on the side lawn. The separate recreational “barn” was unbelievable. Great for kids to run around like crazy without hurting themselves should they be forced in by rain.
The quaint town of Woods Hole, with its oceanographic institute, aquarium, space exhibit, theater, and restaurants are minutes away, and the larger town of Falmouth is not much farther.
We have been back a number of times over the past nine years and always love the moments we spend here. It's a “feel-good” place.
