North Falmouth House Rental Photos and Description
4 Bedrooms + Sleeping Porch, 1.5+ Baths (Sleeps 8-10) and New Outdoor Shower
My beach house in North Falmouth is comfortably large with four bedrooms and is located steps away (seven houses down) from private warm water New Silver Beach. The house features an open, airy floor plan with a beautifully designed Arts and Crafts style dining room and living room with bead-board paneling. The large kitchen has been recently upgraded; is well appointed, and has an ''eat-in'' island counter. All your cooking needs are satisfied. The large dining room can easily fit 12 people with plenty of room to spare. There is a separate dining nook that seats 4/6 comfortably and offers an ocean view of Cleveland Ledge Lighthouse. The room doubles as a gaming room. Overall, the house flows well from front to back. Large sliders open from the kitchen and dining nook to a very large and spacious deck. A 14 X 10 foot topped pergola was installed on the deck last year and allows for a comfortably cool shady area for everyone to congregate under. Since the installation of the pergola I have found that the deck is the place to be for all my guests. It offers a great place to party or just hang out. Being next to the kitchen means that meals can be easily prepared and eaten outdoors. A large commercial grill is on the deck, too.
All bedrooms are located upstairs and all have been recently renovated. The two largest feature a king-size bed and a queen four-post bed and both have air conditioning. The house is generously appointed with lots of windows to catch those afternoon summer breezes coming off the ocean. And the house has central heating for those infrequent, chilly mornings. Both south-facing bedrooms have Casablanca ceiling fans.
I try to think of everything you and your family would need to make your stay a convenience and not a bother. If you are from out-of-state and flying in, we have most everything you will need to make your beach day possible: coolers, beach chairs, beach toys and beach towels are included.
The back yard is great for kids and there is a large enclosed outdoor shower with warm water. The greatest attribute of the beach house is that it functions very well for a shared two-family stay. The area of New Silver is family-oriented. It is not unusual for three or four generations of families to have continually met here at New Silver. People who were here as children 60 years ago are now playing with their grandchildren at the beach. People want to congregate here year after year and build on the memories that this beach environment can offer.
The house is part of the private New Silver Beach Improvement Association (NSBIA). The NSBIA, during their summer season, takes great pride in maintaining the nostalgic feel of an original Cape Cod beach community; maintaining a beautiful beach with life guards, tennis court, a snack bar and children's playground. The Association offers weekly activities, and as our guests, you and your family will be able to take part in all the activities the NSBIA has to offer (ask for details and dates). This can greatly enhance your family's stay at my house.
Past NSBIA activities have included: swimming lessons, kid's cookout w/ bingo, teen dodge ball, nightly movies on the tennis court, grill night, fishing tournament, horseshoe tournament and volleyball. The Tea Room is a focal point for the older kids at night. Association activities calendar for 2014 is not available at this time, but we will gladly e-mail you a copy of the 2013 calendar if you want to get some idea of what is usually available. Activities and associated amenities usually kick off on the last Saturday in June and end on the second or third week in August.
North Falmouth's clean, sandy beaches are the warmest on Cape Cod. Private New Silver beach is bordered by rock jetties and watched over by two lifeguards (in-season and during posted hours). For younger kids, the water level deepens very gradually and for the older kids, there is a diving raft located just off the beach.
Falmouth, which comprises eight distinctive villages, is one of the Cape’s most popular summer destinations. The town occupies the lower corner of the Cape’s shoulder, and because of the many inlets and bays, it is surrounded on nearly three sides by water. Boating and sailing is available from 11 protective harbors. Falmouth Harbor offers protected docking and moorings to boats of all sizes and has easy access to the open ocean. Fishing charter boats and ferries for Martha’s Vineyard also depart from this harbor. Canoeing and kayaking through marshes, rivers, and ponds are popular water sports. New Silver Beach is one of the Cape’s warmest beaches. This beach is especially good for small children.
One of the diamonds of the Cape is the Shining Sea Bike Path. This nicely paved bike way runs along the ocean and through cranberry bogs, marshes and piney forests from North Falmouth to the charming New England village of Woods Hole, which is home to the world renown Marine Biological Laboratory and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. Bike rentals are easily available.
Nearby Falmouth is loaded with quaint shops and wonderful restaurants. There are two cinemas in the area. Martha's Vineyard is easy to get to with two ferries to serve you. Woods Hole has a nice aquarium and Sandwich's Heritage Plantation and Glass Museum are thirty minutes away. Whale watching, antiquing, going the the National Seashore and visiting bustling Provincetown are a few of the many things you can do on the Cape.
Falmouth’s historic Village Green is surrounded by stately captains’ homes. Evening concerts are held in the summer at the Harbor Marine Park bandshell.
The Falmouth Road Race in August is world famous. The route for the 7.1-mile race runs along the coast from Woods Hole to Falmouth.
It is my hope that the beach house allows you to quickly shed your stress and relax during your vacation. Whether sun bathing on the south-facing deck, surfing the net, watching TV on either of two entertainment systems or enjoying your favorite novel; the house is large enough to easily accommodate 10 people doing their own thing comfortably. At night, with the windows open and the usual breeze, the sound of the waves makes for a good night's sleep.
We want your vacation to be one of peaceful relaxation and the house offers that. The fact that the house is close to a great beach and a great area of Cape Cod is an added plus.

About Dan McMillan
My name is Dan McMillan and I have lived on the Cape since 1979. Originally I am from Texas but I have found a new second home here and do not plan to leave. The Cape offers a great quality of life that is hard to beat.

Why Dan McMillan chose North Falmouth
The architecture of the house and its proximity to the beach set it apart. And the first feeling that comes to people once they have set foot inside is the calming atmosphere it offers. The time-darkened bead board paneling, the bright open kitchen, the cheery well-ventilated bedrooms and the expansive deck with the covered pergola offer what most other houses located near the beach do not have. There is enough room in the house to make it a two-family vacation opportunity.
What makes this house unique
The beach is 7 houses away! Not too close and not too far. The house membership to the New Silver Beach Association offers you inclusion to all activities offered and also includes life guards during posted times. The ocean water at New Silver Beach is the warmest on Cape Cod. There are two entertainment centers; one includes a 46 inch Samsung HD TV with surround, a HD DVR recorder, dvd movie collection and cd player and the other with a 32 inch Samsung HD TV with DVR. The covered pergola on the deck offers shade on the sunniest of days and allows use of the deck during light rainy periods, too. The outdoor shower is enclosed and includes heated water.
Guestbook comments from the manager
Dear Dan, Another great year! Love the deck this year; really happy we came when all the activities were happening! Toddlers loved swimming lessons and endless day swimming and searching for shells! Great house for large family gathering (Smiley Face).
Please put a latch on downstairs bathroom. See you next year.
