About Dolores

I am a local real estate agent and realized there was a need for a reasonable cape rental cottage for a couple or small family to experience a cape cod vacation. Having a cottage that is decorated in purely cape cod style, with all the amenities of a washer/drier, dishwasher, gas grill, beach chairs & beach toys for kids was a priority.

Why Dolores chose East Orleans

For family and friends and investment purposes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I had a great week at this cottage which was a surprising surprise. The photos do not do justice. Decorated with lots of thought.For the size, it was very spacious, lots of cape cod details like beadboard, painted panelling & pictures. It was furnished with cottage style furniture with very good & comfortable beds. This cottage was meticulous & clean. It was an easy jog to Nauset Ocean Beach which I did every day and a short walk to salt water for fishing & kyacing. I loved the outside shower after coming from the beach. Great gas grill where we grilled fresh fish every night. Private yard and picnic area. I would highly recommend it to a couple or a family with 1 or 2 children. I will certainly be back

Serene and beautiful

  • 5 of 5

This cottage is exactly how I've always thought of cape cod...its set on large open land, with wild flowers. It is so easy to escape the world here...Nauset beach is a bike ride away as is the town with a great food market. The cottage itself is fresh and newly renovated...even a great washer/dryer! Lots of outdoor activities and outdoor space at the cottage to grill. I did a lot of cycling and biked up to Coast Guard Beach.

Very clean and well appointed cottage. Great location.

  • 4 of 5

My only area of improvement would be the limited television channels that may have posed an issue had my kids been with me. The owner was very pleasant and happy to ensure a positive experience. Adorable cottage.

Our stay at the "Sweet Pea" Cottage in Orleans, MA

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was an absolute delight and exceeded our expectations...just a mile from our favorite beach at Nauset. The outdoor shower was fantastic, especially after a day of swimming or biking. In fact we never used the indoor shower at all during our 7 day stay. Our favorite restaurants were just a short drive and our daily ritual of watching sunsets at Rock Harbor or First Encounter Beach were an added convenience. The warm, private, cozy yet spacious cottage is well appointed with all the amenities you would desire, including a washer dryer and is tastefully decorated in the Cape Cod/Beach décor. Delores was a delight and is vested in insuring your stay at "Sweet Pea" meets your expectations. We will be returning next year but for 2 weeks as 1 week just wasn't enough! Wonderful!!

A breath of fresh air

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful little bungalow nestled in a quaint meadow-like area, close to the beach, with all the amenities, including an outdoor shower and picnic table. Can bike to beach or town bike path. Wouldn't change a thing. Amazing spot for a vacation at the cape. Highly recommend!

How Sweet it is!

  • 5 of 5

This Cottage is just what the doctor ordered for some R&R. The owner is extremely welcoming - made sure everything was in order and even gave us some treats upon our arrival! Cottage is very clean and cozy. The location is perfect - private, near Nauset beach and not far from the center of town. Orleans also has a local theatre and shopping. The Sweet Peat cottage has an accommodating kitchen - we cooked breakfast every morning - but you could even make dinner if you prefer. Weather is a little chilly in October, but there's plenty to do in Cape Cod even if the weather makes swimming not an option. Biking to lighthouse beach is a "must" if you like biking, or even driving there. We also biked past some para-sailers and saw some seals. There are lakes nearby that offer warmer water (than the ocean). We wanted to go to P-town but there was so much to do we didn't have the chance. Next time! We definitely recommend this cottage to anyone who likes the beach, biking, antiquing and all of the other outdoor activities Orleans has to offer!

The Epitome of Cape Cod Living

  • 4 of 5

This cute and authentically decorated cape cottage is just right for a couple or small family. It has everything you need to enjoy the cape to it's fullest-beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, etc, central location to town and the beach, a nice outside dining option and you can walk a mile to the beach. The owner really cares about attention to detail and provides a great book with suggestions of places to eat and things to do. The suggestions we tried were all spot on. Biking is great on the trail nearby, the local stores have great food selections. The cottage was very clean and had all elements advertised-including small items like salt, coffee filters, laundry soap, etc. The owner provides us excellent service in answering any questions and facilitating our stay.

Joe's Bar, the Nauset fish market were great! Nauset beach is really nice but some logistics are required to get a parking place if you need to bring more than a few items. I would definitely return and would recommend it tommy family and friends.
