About Anthony

Hi. I was born and still live in Boston, and have been coming to the cape my whole life - finally my family was able to buy our dream property and welcome guests to the place we love.

Anthony purchased this cottage in 1995

Why Anthony chose Orleans

It took me over 2 years of driving every street on Cape Cod to find a perfect place that was near the center of town - but also on the ocean,... that's extremely rare! The Orleans town cove offers that unique combination !

What makes this cottage unique

We are not happy unless you are happy. We want you to have fun and come back again.

Guestbook comments from the owner

David Lowe - Boston, MA

If you stay here, bring your kyak, or rent one from the Goose Hummock. We paddled right from the cottage out to Nauset Inlet, and spent hours watching the seals - there had to be a hundred of them - great fun, nice place, good people.

Wonderfully relaxing vacation site

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was immaculate, with an incredibly beautiful location on the bay. The interior was very comfortable, well maintained and nicely furnished. The exterior provided lovely views of the area, with the relaxing vista of the water viewed from the porch as well as the nearby swings. The site was also very convenient to nearby stores and restaurants within easy walking distance. The owners were extremely welcoming and helpful. We will certainly recommend the site and hope to return ourselves someday.

Show up unpack and relax...

  • 5 of 5

Clean private convienient... when you sit on the deck or relax around the firepit you feel a million miles away, yet you are walking distance to just about everything, not to mention a short drive to everything the Cape has to offer.

The cottage is just right for a family of four or five. The view was fantastic! Quiet too!!😄

  • 5 of 5

Even though the Cottages are just off of Route 6A there is very little automobile traffic noise when you are in the house or on the deck. It is easy access by foot or bike to many great locations in Orleans. The walk over to the windmill or to rent a kayak is all of about 2 minutes. The owner was very accessible and quite nice to deal with. I would recommend renting both cottages which are side by side for a small group of family or friends. Finally, the breezes off the water from the Nauset Beach inlet definitely make for a cool place to get away from work worries for a while.

very nice trip

  • 4 of 5

Overall we enjoyed our stay. The cottage was a little smaller than I had thought and if it were not for the beautiful weather and our being able to eat breakfast outside each morning, breakfast would have presented a problem. The kitchen is too small to eat in. But the mornings were beautiful and we had breakfast watching the small sail boats go by.

A couple of nights were chilly and we should have asked for directions on how to turn on the heat, our fault that we didn't.

The property is well maintained and spotlessly clean. We found everything there that we needed. The location is good for access to the upper Cape and of course easy access to the beaches. I would recommend this property

Owner's Response: Thanks JoAnn for the response, and also for the guest book and other gifts you left me! And Margie thanks you for your remarks about the cleanliness. She works hard to keep it that way. (Regarding the kitchen size, I just want readers to understand that you had four adults in your party, so they won't think it's too tiny). And sorry about the heat,... there's a red switch above the fridge but sometimes obscured by the lobster pot. My bad. Hope you come back and let me make that up to you. Thanks again. Tony.

3 incredible beaches - 5 or 10 minute ride
Car: recommended

We are conveniently located less than 1 minute off route 6 (mid cape highway) on the picturesque and dramatic saltwater Orleans town cove, and adjacent to a tranquil oceanfront park (Jonathan Young Windmill park). The property is private and quiet, yet within walking distance to fantastic shops, restaurants, Super Stop&Shop, Windmill Liquors, Nauset fish market, world-famous Birdwatchers General Store, etc. etc. This is really the best location on the Cape. You will love it! Three gorgeous beaches are minutes away, or you can swim in our beautiful cove (although there's almost no sand at the cove - so better off at the beach with little kids). Don't miss Chatham with all the seals and great-white sharks, and renowned Chatham Bars Inn (next town over on route 28),... or must-see Provincetown, so very interesting in many ways,... words can't describe it - just gotta go ! (a 25 mile scenic ride to the tip of the cape thru the National Seashore). Race Point area is some of the best land God ever created !

Also great attractions are Hyannis and Hyannisport, of Kennedy fame. There's too much to list really, but call me anytime with questions (617-817-7706).
