About as good as it gets for large families
We were looking for a place that could accommodate our extended family and friend’s reunion on Cape Cod. Ken and Ginger’s historic home overlooking Pleasant Bay was exactly what we were looking for. The house absorbed the comings and goings of 25 guests over the two week stay. The location was breathtaking, the house met our needs and Ken and Ginger couldn’t have been more accommodating. Nothing is perfect. The house is a bit funky and looks more like a Bermuda cottage resort than Cape Cod, but it’s clean, well equipped, beautifully situated and everyone thoroughly enjoyed being there. If I could change anything it would be to add another bathroom or two. Nine bedrooms and 5 bathrooms require some flexibility, but we made it work. We recommend it highly to anyone planning an important family event.
Our Bookclub of 6 couples stayed at Ken and Ginger's home this past weekend. We found the homeowners to be a pleasure to work with and each one of us had a great time.
The home is well appointed with plenty of space and a fantastic water view with many areas to gather or find space if you need to. The kitchen and dining room easily held all of us. The pool table and dart board were a nice bonus!
Incredible Location & Home!!
We brought the entire extended family to celebrate our parents' 50th wedding anniversary and we could not have been happier with Gentle Heritage. The home is enormous, giving everyone the space they needed and also the common areas to all meet up for meals, chatting or just enjoying the incredible views of Pleasant Bay. The house is up to date, charming and we could not have asked for a better location. The Winslows were very attentive to our needs and made for very gracious hosts. We ranged in ages from 5 to 75 and the home worked for all of us. The private beach was so great for days we didn't want to leave the compound...and we found that we really didn't need to as we had everything we needed at the house. We were all very sad to leave, but plans to return are already in the works! Thanks again to the Winslows for sharing their amazing home with us. A trip to remember!
Thank you so much. It is always wonderful to know families have had a great vacation. You all were perfect guests.
Outstanding property and owners
Must concur with the rave reviews of others. Gentle Heritage estate is unique and magnificent. Gorgeous grounds in a prime Cape Cod location. Ginger and Ken could not have been any kinder in all of their communications and accommodations. Highly recommend this estate and you can rest assured that it will be a pleasant experience with the Winslows.
An epic landscape bedecked by a unique jewel
A superb venue; a persistent rain the first day couldn't dampen the great fun experienced by 6 couples while staying for a get-away at this magnificent property. The charming accommodations, fine food, many nearby leisure pursuits and breath taking vistas of the wild beauty of Cape Cod were only exceeded by the warmth & genuine hospitality of the Winslows.
To call it spectacular doesn't even do it justice!
I rented the Winslow Estate for my daughter's wedding. Renting from Wednesday to Wednesday gave us all time to get settled in and time to relax after the fact. As I stated above to call the estate spectacular is truly an understatement. Everything was as promised. Ken & Ginger were great to deal with. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone. A little piece of heaven on Cape Cod!
The estate is in South Orleans equal distance between Chatham and Orleans. Chatham's beatiful Main Sreet is noted for its quaint Cape Cod feeling and variety of shops including restaurants, antiques, clothing, and surf shops. Pleasant Bay is excellent for swimming, sailing, fishing, wind surfing, kayaking, motor boating (your own or rent one) water skiing, or just walking the shoreline. The estate comes with a mooring and a skiff and oars.
Nauset Beach in Orleans has big waves for body surfing, boogie or skim boarding, surfboarding and surf casting for bluesfish and bass.
Skaket Beach in Orleans is noted for the warm salt water flats, sand bars, clamming, and is always a favorite for children. You can walk seemingly forever into Cape Cod Bay when the tide is out or just swim sand bar to sand bar when it is in.
