About the property

Cottage,2 Br,sleeps 6,H&A/C,1full bath,outside shower/H&C water,enclosed porch


This is a Nonsmoking & No Pets cottage. ( No exceptions, family allergies ) It is a fully equipped housekeeping cottage. This means you should be able to locate the equipment you need to prepare and serve you own food, plus keep the house clean. Nothing you eat is provided. You are expected to clean up anything you get dirty and restore anything you move to it's original location. WE DO HAVE a Heating/AC system that keeps the main cottage comfortable. The system does not serve the windowed/screened porch so the porch door should remain closed when Heat/AC is in use. 1st floor- Living, kitchen,dining & full bath (toilet, sink and fiberglass shower), There is also an outside after-swim shower with Hot & Cold water. Both showers may be used at the same time. 2nd floor has 2 bedrooms in a loft. The stairway to the loft is shown in a photo. A safety gate is provided for the top of the steps. There is also a small night light at the top of the stairs. Walkout basement under the main part of the house is available for bike storage. There is a charcoal grill.

Just as advertised, nothing more nothing less. Owner was very responsive to questions or concerns. Small cabin perfect for couple looking for the basics. Don't forget to add price of linens, towels, cooking supplies, beach items(like chairs). This was the only drawback of this rental. I think the housekeeper must take ALL of the condiments, paper supplies, etc. that would normally be found in other rentals. We purchased a broom and mop for cleaning, hopefully it's still there. Everything had to be purchased prior to our first nights stay. The stop n shop in Orleans is the best place for any basic items like paper products, toilet paper, condiments, etc. Stop by Maurice's Market across from the drive inn for a great lobster roll.

Owner's Response: When guests come from a distant state, they don't always understand what is customary to provide or not provide in Cape Cod cottages. Most cottages, like ours, do not provide towels and linens. Guests may bring their own or rent them from one of the local linen companies. Guests decide this on their own. Stephen chose to rent. There is a list of amenities we provide on our website. We also email other info, directions and our lease. We always talk to guests by phone, if possible, prior to accepting a booking. We want to answer any questions and provide as much information as we can. We did speak with Stephen by phone before he booked the cottage. In fact we are the ones that suggested to Stephen, as we do with other guests, that he should stop in Orleans at a large supermarket to purchase food and supplies before going to the cottage. If there are any problems at the cottage, guests know from our info to call us immediately. At that point we contact the appropriate service provider, housekeeper, plumber, etc. Stephen did not call us about any issues while at the cottage. Renting a Cape Cod cottage and having a cottage experience is different from renting a hotel room.
