The Cape Cod National Seashore was voted one of the most beautiful beaches in America.

Many things to do!!: The National Seashore Center in Eastham offers many programs for families, as does the Audubon Center in Wellfleet. Several Playhouses offer summer theater which changes on a weekly basis, such as the Academy Playhouse in Orleans, the Dennis Playhouse, the Wellfleet Harbor Actor's Theatre (WHAT). There is a Farmer's Market on Saturday morning in Orleans (a short walk from the house), and frequent Art Shows. There is also a weekly band concert at the Nauset Beach Gazebo and for the kids there is mini- golf located nearby. For sports fans, the Orleans FireBirds, a Summer Cape League Baseball Team, plays regular games about one mile away on Route 28. Rock Harbor offers deep sea fishing adventures and there is surf fishing at Nauset Beach. Whale watching is a popular activity in Provincetown. And, finally, the Cape is a bird watcher's paradise!

                                                              Wonderful home and location!!

                                                              Marie W.Silver Spring, Maryland

                                                              This home truly made us feel at home as soon as we opened the door! The decor and design details are exceptional! The yard and garden were added attractions to this property. The home is more than fully equipped for an enjoyable stay. The location close to town while providing peace and privacy was a special combination. Being walking distance to Orleans town center was a definite plus. The peaceful screened porch was a retreat within a retreat. I would certainly recommend this property for a stay on the Cape!

                                                              Great Place to Unwind


                                                              We greatly enjoy being at the Orleans retreat. The retreat itself is a very relaxing and comfortable site. It is well-furnished and surrounded by trees and beautiful flower beds. We also love the location with easy access to both the bay side and outer ocean National Seashore beaches, and the Cape Cod Rail Trail is right nearby. Some great restaurants (ABBA, Brewster Fish House, Captain Cass's, Cottage Street Bakery, and others) are also in the area. It's so easy to have a good time here.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              We are glad you had a great get-away at our Rock Harbor Retreat and that you also enjoyed all there is to do in the area. We look forward to welcoming you back next year!!

                                                              Lovely spot in Orleans

                                                              Pamela E.Cambridge

                                                              If you don't look closely, you'll miss this pleasant house which is tucked back from the road behind another house. This means that you get plenty of privacy. The home is surrounded by trees in the rear and the front provides a pretty garden in which to sit or snooze. We loved the 2nd floor deck which makes you feel like you're in a tree house!

                                                              The house is well equipped - everything you need for your stay. Also - and this is important - it is immaculate! Truly, a spotless house. Beds are comfortable. Everything works. A great place to stay! Oh - we liked that we were so close to the Cape Cod Bike Trail, shops and restaurants, etc.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you for your kind words and great feedback. Can't wait to see you next year!!
