This home is Old Cape Cod to perfection. You’ll get the best of both worlds~ Beach and quaint Cape Village. Relax the days away on the beach (walk home for lunch)! Walk down to Barnstable Harbor to pick up the legendary Whale Watch Tours or grab some amazingly fresh seafood for dinner. Antiquing, window shopping and discovering local flavor in one of the many restaurants is waiting for you in the village. Or.. spend hours playing at the children's park lovingly named 'The Hollow' across the street. The Village of Barnstable is located on the north side of the cape, centered along 'Old Kings Highway', route 6A, the home to many historic landmarks including Sturgis Library, The Olde Colonial Courthouse, The Barnstable Comedy Club, and the Trayser Museum. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of Hyannis, you are but a 5 minute drive to the Cape Cod Mall and downtown. This house is truly the best of both worlds!

Great house - great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 plus different guests throughout the week (topped out at 11 two of the nights) were very comfortable at "Bag End." The house is very nice, very clean - stocked with everything we needed in the kitchen. Although it is so close to restaurants we ended up eating out a lot. When we did cook, it was a quick walk to the store if we forgot butter or ketchup (which we did! Also wine!) Really enjoyed our stay here!

By far nicest house we've rented on the cape to date!

  • 5 of 5

This house is just beautiful. Gorgeous original floors, clean new kitchen with high end appliances, ornate woodwork thoughout. Clean, spacious and walking distance to food and the beach. We had 2 families of 4 and there was more than enough privacy for each of our clans, house does not conduct sound so the early birds could get up and start their day without waking the others. Although this is on a main road, you cannot hear traffic from the house and you feel very secluded. Lovely manicured landscaping and hot tub!! Cannot express how much we enjoyed our stay. We hope to be back soon!!!

Great house! Great location! Great service!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Bag End for a week to celebrate my father's 70th birthday. There were a total of 7 adults and 4 kids (ages ranged from 2 - 11). The house fit us all very comfortably. There was even room to spread out and plenty of areas for privacy when needed. The house is stocked with EVERYTHING you would need for entertaining, and the yard is great with the hot tub, BBQ, outdoor shower, etc.

The location was perfect. Most things were walking distance...exactly half a mile to the beach, even closer to ice cream and restaurants, and centrally located on the cape for easy access to other towns and attractions. Millway Beach is small during high tide, but really great at low tide, and there are 2 restaurants right there which makes it easy.

Luke is very responsive to any and all questions. We had an issue with the wifi on the first day, and Luke was there the very next day with the solution. Really great and fast communication.

We would highly recommend staying at Bag End!!

What a lovely house! My family and I really enjoyed our stay at Bag End. The house was perfect for our large extended family and the yard was great for our family reunion party for about 50 people. I loved being able to walk to the market and restaurants, and the beach. We even walked down to the marina to go on an awesome whale watch cruise. Luke was always quick to get back to us with any questions we had both before and during our stay. I absolutely recommend this house for a wonderful Cape Cod vacation!

Lovely place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Lovely home in a great location! It’s a quick walk to the local market, ice cream shop, coffee shop, restaurants, and easy walking distance to the whale watch boat, beach, and a delicious seafood market. Barnstable is a great town with everything we could ask for, and is an easy drive to many other destinations on the Cape. The house is charming and large, easily accommodating our group of 7 adults and 2 children. Luke was easy to communicate with and was very helpful. Overall, it was a wonderful home for us for a week on the Cape! Highly recommend.
