We recently bought this vacation home from our parents; it has been in our family for over thirty years. When we lived in Maine, we would come down every summer to enjoy Old Silver Beach with our boys. The beach is great for kids of all ages, because it is level, the water is warm and it has soft sand. Also it has posted lifeguards all summer and a clearly defined swimming area. We now live in Oregon but come back whenever we can to enjoy the house and the Cape. We think you’ll enjoy the layout and proximity to the beach. We also want you to have the best vacation possible; we want to hear your suggestions on how to make it even better.
Best wishes for a great vacation for you and your family!

We love Cape Cod and the Falmouth area in particular. It is easy and fast to get to once you cross the canal. Falmouth has a true small town New England feel. A ten minute drive gets you to the center of town with great shopping and ice cream. Pick up a Falmouth Enterprise Newspaper and see what’s happening in the arts and local politics.
The house is a five minute walk to Old Silver Beach and the walk brings you past tidal ponds and the newly renovated Sea Crest Hotel. The house also has a right of way at the end of the street that lets you walk into the cranberry bogs and access Wing Pond. In the fall, you actually get to see the cranberry harvest and the sea of floating red berries.
The Shining Sea Bikeway has been extended well into N. Falmouth now and you can access it at a number of points. This gets you onto a protected paved path that ultimately leads you to Woods Hole and the ferry system to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket. You bike past the Vineyard Sound beaches and Nobska Lighthouse, often under a canopy of trees. Also within a ten minute car drive, you can be shopping downtown in Falmouth or the Mashpee Commons. Woods Hole also has a great saltwater aquarium for kids on rainy days, that includes seals and a touching pool.
