About David G Drake
Even though our lives have taken us off Cape we get back as often as we can. I love working on the house. I designed the house from the foundation up and I built most everything you see myself or with the help of some very talented local friends and craftsmen. The bookshelves, decks and built-ins are all by hand. Relaxing to me is adding something hand made to the house while my family reads and relaxes or plays on the deck.
David G Drake purchased this House in 2008
Why David G Drake chose Centerville
I grew up here on Cape Cod and building this home was a twelve year project. But we are willing to bet you'll agree, it was well worth the effort! The waters of Nantucket Sound and Craigville Beach have always had magical healing powers for me and my family. The smell of the salt air and hearing the sound of the waves at the beach as you drop off to sleep... Well it doesn't get much better than that!
What makes this House unique
Peace and quiet but close to everything! Get outside and get into nature! Or just sink back and relax in a soft chair on one of the decks with your morning coffee and watch the antics of geese, ducks, swans and check up on our Osprey family (Brad and Loretta) as they raise their family throughout the spring and summer! The show never stops on the Centerville River!

Exceptional in every way!
This was our second consecutive vacation at this magnificent home. Absolutely beautiful, large home that comfortably handled our family of 7 adults and my 3 young grand children. The property was immaculate, with bedrooms and private baths to accommodate our family. The setting is perfect with the home nestled on the river within a block of the beautiful Centerville Beach. The home has beautiful 360 views from multiple decks. We loved every bit of our stay and hope to continue to enjoy vacations here for years to come. My thanks to the Drake family for allowing us to enjoy their beautiful home.
Hey Brian! You guys are great. Come visit us again anytime.
Beautiful Cape Cod Home
We rented the house for a 4th of July family reunion – it was perfect. Our group included 3 couples, one baby and a great grandma. The house was immaculate and well stocked, the kitchen well-equipped (and we like to cook), and there were baby gates, a high chair, a booster seat, pack and play etc. for our little one. The wrap around deck on the first floor and upper deck of the 2nd floor bedrooms offer beautiful views of the beach and a fantastic spot to watch the fireworks (from multiple displays). Easy walk to the beach (beach toys, chairs and umbrellas are available), short walk to ice cream shop and playground. There is a wonderful screened in porch off the kitchen with a table big enough to seat 8. The large first floor deck has moveable posts so you can block it off for little ones. We love the house so much we’ve booked it again for next year!
We are glad you loved your stay - your family photo is magnificent- can’t wait to see you next year!!!
Loved it - place is great!
Quick stay - for work. will be back with family to enjoy more time!

Perfect Cape Cod Vacation
We had a wonderful time at this beautiful home! The property is perfect for large families. We had 6 adults and two small children. My granddaughter had the time of her life on the beach, which is within a two minute walk. The house sits within a virtual nature preserve, with Heron and Ospreys right outside the windows. The home itself was impeccable, wonderful kitchen, 5 beautiful bedrooms all with private baths. We couldn't have been happier with everything about our stay. Our thanks to the Drake family for the opportunity to spend the week in their perfect Cape Cod property.
And you guys are welcome back anytime you like! Thanks for taking such good care of our home. We are glad you felt the magic!

Great house for multi generational family. Very well maintained, w/ ample supplies and clean linens. Lovely rooms, lots of windows, airy and open even in inclement weather.

Peaceful location on Craigville river yet close to Hyannis for ferry and dining.
