Disappointing

  • 1 of 5
There are so many issues with this house its hard to know where to start. However, I'll limit myself to those things that I believe would be of primary interest to would-be renters:

- Yes, the house sleeps 9, but most of them won't sleep too well. One of the bedrooms - with four of the beds - can only be accessed by walking through another bedroom which is itself right off of the house's main room/dining room. That means up to four individuals tramping through at any time.
- Another bedroom, which seems like a small converted store room is also right off of the main room/dining room. And as none of the bedroom doors shut tight or are more than the thinnest of wood doors, every single word, light step, or eating activity in the main/dining room is broadcast directly into these two adjacent rooms. In the pictures of the dining room, you'll notice all the doors are shut - this is likely because if the opened them, you'd see the beds right there inside the doors!
- The main bathroom (shown in pictures) is extremely small, old, and of marginal use for all but the most basic of needs.
- The kitchen is also extremely small and old, and cooking for the 8 people we had at the house was a real challenge. Also, don't expect to have anyone trying to clean while someone else is cooking, as there isn't even enough room for two people to actually work side-by-side in the kitchen. As you can actually from the pictures, no one can possible use the sinks while someone is cooking on the stovetop.
- The picture of the dining room is accurate in another way - its virtually impossible for 8, much less 9, to eat in. By combing through the house, we found enough chairs for 7 to use, but that left no chairs in any of the bedrooms.
- There is no closet space to speak of anywhere- nor anywhere to hang any clothes in most rooms.
- The house is OLD. It could certainly be considered charming, but its also creaks and bangs to such an extent that no one is going to sleep though any activity being conducted anywhere else in the small, tight living quarters.
- I have family on the Cape, and have been there often, but its been years since have had such a 'rustic' experience there. Overall, if one os OK with that, it might be nice for a couple or small family of 3 or 4 who could maybe spread out a bit and doesn't do much cooking. Otherwise, its pretty unpleasant.

Owner's Response: This group of adult men were quite disappointing on my end as a home owner also. In the future I will not be renting to "Hardcore Guys Only Fishing Trip" inquiries.
My home was built in 1790 so it is over 200 years old and deserves quality care and respectful renters.

Lovely home on a beautiful pond.

  • 4 of 5
Spent a wonderful week at this vintage Cape Cod property. The private dock and access to Ryder pond alone is all that you need, but the house is charming. Very well-appointed kitchen, utensils, plenty of sleeping beds and pull-out futon also. A grassy flat yard with picnic tables was ideal for evening cocktails and kids running around. Used the grill several times. The pond is pristine! Cold, clear and a delight to swim and boat in. A private floating dock to jump from and canoe, kayak and rowboat were other ammenities that we enjoyed. Nighttime skinny-dipping highly recommended! No T.V. or wi-fi, but that was not a concern for us at all. Easy access to Wellfleet Center and local beaches. Not a modern place, so you need to enjoy old houses with wood floors and great moldings. Great spot for a family that wants to pond-swim and experience the true Cape Cod summertime. And they take dogs!
