Cozy Cape Cod cottage tucked in the woods, within walking distance to Bakers Pond. It is only a short drive to other area beaches. Offering a large wrap-around deck and a nice outdoor shower. The cottage shares a spacious well landscaped yard with the owners residence. However, it has its own personal backyard space with plenty of privacy. The kitchen has a gas stove with above microwave, dishwasher, and refrigerator. Queen size bedroom and one full bathroom is located on the main floor next to the kitchen and dining area. A spiral staircase takes you down stairs to where the second bedroom (twin bed) and living area (sleep sofa) are located with a walk out entrance. For off-season rentals the cottage has a gas heating system. It is suitable for a young family or for a romantic getaway.
We had a wonderful stay at this cozy cottage. It only sleeps 4 people. The cottage is very clean and the grounds are very well maintained. My children loved the outdoor shower, it was great when we got back from the beach.The owners have a binder full of information about sights, attractions and restaurants. We were only a few minutes from Rte 6, Shaw's supermarket and downtown Orleans. We have already recommended this cottage to a few of our friends.
The cottage is beautifully clean and very attractively furnished. The bed is very comfy and the linens and towels are all lovely. The spiral staircase looks challenging, but we soon got used to it. The house is in a great position for exploring the Cape, having very easy access to Route 6, but being in a quiet spot, surrounded by trees. The garden is well maintained and the deck provides plenty of space for eating out and relaxing. The hosts are very friendly and helpful . This was our second visit and we hope it will not be our last! The cottage is an ideal 'home from home' for 2 , and we love it.
We just got home from a perfect family vacation in Orleans. The "Joy" cottage and her owners are just charming. It's was so well kept, maintained and full of everything you needed. The ice cold air conditioning was a plus because this was a hot humid week. I have been staying in Orleans for 30 years and that last 5 with my husband and our 3 children, this is right at the top for my favorite house. Will definitely be back next year.
Thanks you so much Peter and Lynda!
We have truly found our little home away on the Cape. The October weather was perfect with lots of time at Coast Guard Beach where we saw many seals and were entertained by a couple of kite boarders on one afternoon. We had successful treasure hunting excursions at the Wellfleet flea market. In general, we thoroughly enjoyed the peace and quiet of the off season. Thank you again Peter and Lynda for extending your hospitality to us. Eric & Karen, Litchfield, CT.
We had a fantastic 2 weeks in Joy Cottage - a wonderful place to stay on the Cape. A cosy, well-equipped "haven" among the trees, The owners were extremely friendly and accommodating and did everything they could to ensure our stay was memorable. The cottage is ideally placed to take Route 6 to Provincetown, Route 28 to Chatham. Anywhere on the Cape is within easy reach. Don't tell too many people otherwise the cottage will get booked up too quickly!!!
This cute as a button cottage is just what we were looking for in a rental. Tastefully decorated with a FULLY appointed kitchen, we wanted for nothing but more time to enjoy it. Very clean, quiet, and conveniently located, all that was missing was the sound of the surf, and that was remedied by our very favorite strip of sand, Coast Guard Beach. We enjoyed the spectacular sunsets at Rock Harbor, the Wellfleet flea market, cruise night at the A & W in Harwich and so much more. We look forward to our next visit. We're glad your son's family outgrew their first nest! Eric and Karen, Litchfield, CT
The location of our property is only a short distance to town where there is shopping, plenty of restaurants, and the home to the Firebirds summer league baseball league. Orleans is home to several beaches including Skaket Beach, a bay beach perfect for family time. Nauset Beach is one of our most popular for surf and sun. We only only a short distance to Nickerson State Park and the Rail Trail.
