We spent a week in August at the house, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We had a family gathering of kids and grandkids, and the house was very well suited to our needs. The furnishings were over the top for most rentals in that the quality and good taste of the decor made all of us feel like we were in a home. Since I grew up on the Cape in Orleans, I reveled in the evening sunsets on the deck. We found that eating dinners in rather than going to restaurants was more pleasurable in that we could eat on the deck and enjoy the end of day. The walk to the beach was short, and the bay is much better suited for children that the ocean beaches; no undertows, and exploring the flats at low tide provided the children with a wealth of stories and discoveries that they could take home to their friends. One last opinion of the house: the TV room is thoughtfully located at one end of the house, so that non viewers could curl up with a book in another quiet room.
My wife and I enjoy our morning coffee at local coffee shops, and enjoyed the Chocolate Sparrow in Orleans, and the Sparrow in Eastham, but the PB Bistro in Wellfleet was in a class by itself! The morning breakfast goodies were as good as any we had when we visited Paris a couple of years ago. Our only regret was that we weren't able to have dinner there, but we'll look forward to that on our next visit.
Thanks for allowing us the use of your wonderful home; we hope to revisit.
