Overview

Cape Cod House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This classic, cozy Cape Cod gem offers water views, privacy and tranquility. Located at the end of a private road, this lovely shingled Cape overlooks a crystalline, spring-fed lake suitable for swimming, fishing, canoeing and kayaking.

Have your lunch on the stone patio while sunlight twinkles on the lake, or sip a glass of wine in the newly-rebuilt sunroom. Beautiful Old Silver Beach is just minutes away, and when you get back, you can rinse off in the enclosed outdoor hot-and-cold shower.

Five public golf courses are within minutes of the house. A gourmet meal, some fabulous shopping and the latest movies are just down the road at Mashpee Commons or in Falmouth. If you enjoy biking, the Shining Sea Bikeway will take you from Falmouth to Wood's Hole. Golfers will find several courses just minutes away. This adorable house is in a perfect location, combining beauty and privacy with proximity to everything the Cape has to offer.

About Meredith Tufts

This adorable home belonged to my husband's parents. Since acquiring it in 2002, we have repainted the entire interior, installed wainscoting in the kitchen and upstairs bathroom, laid a new floor in the kitchen, replaced bathroom linoleum with tile, installed new fixtures in the upstairs bathroom, rebuilt the sunroom, installed a stone patio and walkway, installed an enclosed, hot and cold outdoor shower, upgraded the electrical system, re-shingled, replaced the roof and all windows, repointed the chimney and repaired the garage foundation. In 2012, we put new tile floors in the bathrooms and hardwood on the second floor landing. We are now working on the gardens. We rent the house during the summers to offset some of these costs and to enable us to keep the home in the family. We live north of Boston and have three grown children.

Owner is also a real estate sales agent, holding license #009512312 from the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

Meredith Tufts purchased this house in 2002

What makes this house unique

The peace and privacy we enjoy here is unmatched. We awake to bird songs in the spring, watch geese and ducks as they glide in over the lake, and enjoy swimming in the lake. We play tennis at nearby Falmouth High School, walk the holly reservation at Ashumet, go antiquing and golfing. Shopping and dining at nearby Mashpee Commons. Our sister and brother-in-law have used the place as a base for enjoying the beach and the many public golf courses nearby.

Great Vacation Spot!

  • 5 of 5

If your looking for a place to stay in East Falmouth, you should seriously consider this place! It's the last house down a gravel lane so it's private and it overlooks the lake, what more could you ask for?

It was also in a great central location from Falmouth or any of the other surrounding towns and really it did not take us long to get to the places that we wanted to go.

The house has everything you would need for the week to prepare meals or to even cookout on the grills.

The owners have floats, pool noodles, boogie boards, sand toys, kids beach chair, a camping chair it was everything we needed for the lake and the beach.

The lake has a great little beach area for smaller kids and it was just a nice lake to swim and float around in.

We did bring our own bed linens and bath/kitchen towels just because we knew we wouldn't be able to wash and dry everything before we departed early Saturday morning.

The owner was responsive to any email I had sent, she replied within 24 hours and usually it was even sooner then this.

Thanks Meredith for letting us stay at your house, we had a great time!

Awesome Place!

  • 5 of 5

Our first stay in East Falmouth and this house made the stay awesome! Very quiet location and the lake is just super! Close to the busy Falmouth / Woods Hole areas but quiet when you want it. Washer / dryer in basement is a bonus. Hint: only boat launch to larger lake (Coonamessett) across the street, which also does not allow motor boats, is from dirt road down Hatchville Road on left. A long, windy road that is a bit rough, but worth it.

The Sisters

  • 5 of 5

Everything about the place was magical! We enjoyed the well equiped kitchen, the spacious family room and the dining room table big enough to do puzzles on.The lake was warm enough to swim in and it was lovely sitting on the sand by the water as well as hanging out on the hammock and eating outside on the patio. A short walk down the quiet street to Coonamessett Farm was a real treat. We had dinner with live music there on Wednesday night and they have a great ice cream shop.

The one suggestion with the place would be to include the linen service in the price as we brought our own because we didn't have time to wash sheets before check out time. We have recommended this charming place to friends.

Trip with Sisters

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a week at "the Cutest Place on the Cape!

The property was everything that the listing said it was and more. The house was very comfortable, clean and had everything needed for an extended stay.

The location was beautiful, as well as convenient for exploring the Cape, islands and mainland.

The owner answered all of our questions promptly. She also gave us many helpful hints and ideas of things to see and do. We had a marvelous time and would highly recommend this property to others.

Thanks again for a memorable visit to Cape Cod!,
