I own the house with my husband, Dave. I manage the house and help you plan your vacation by providing all the information you need in my packet that I send you along with booklets, etc. We bought our house because we have both loved the ocean since we were kids. We had vacationed at Cape Cod with our family and dreamed about owning a house on the Rt.6A side of the Cape (the bay side, less crowded, very quaint). That dream came true in April 1994 when we purchased our home in private Scorton Shores! Once we glanced at our beach with that blue/green color that we love, we knew that this was meant to be. Our next plan was to completely renovate and add on which we did winter/spring of 2005. We, and our repeat renters, couldn't be happier with the changes! Our yard is beautifully landscaped with sun and shade. We love to walk from the house to the beach then to the Scorton Creek path when we get the chance to stay. Our renters feel as though it's their house and we hope you do, too!
My husband, Dave, and I have both loved the ocean since we were kids. We had vacationed at Cape Cod for years with our family and dreamed about owning a house on the Rt.6A side of the Cape. That dream came true in April 1994 when we purchased our home in the private beach community of Scorton Shores! Once we glanced at our beach with the beautiful blue/green colors that we love, we knew that this was meant to be. Our next plan was to completely renovate and add on to our house which we did from late fall 2004 through June 2005. We, and our renters, couldn't be happier with the changes!! Our yard is beautifully landscaped and we love sitting in the sun/shady areas. We both love to walk from our house to the beach (9 minutes) and around to the Scorton Creek path and back to the house for our morning exercise. Dave is a runner and loves this run more than any other! You can walk the beach for miles!!! We also enjoy the privacy our beach has to offer. You need the beach pass to get onto the beach (copies in our house). Biking, fishing, shopping, exploring are what we love to do when we're at our house. Lots of bike trails not far away!! We have grown children and have 3 young grandchildren who absolutely love the house. People who have homes in Scorton Shores either live there year round or use their homes as their vacation home; not many rental properties here. Our neighbors are great! Peaceful, family area. We're not far from Hyannis where you can shop, eat, get the boats to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard. We're also not far from The National Seashore where you'll see wild surf and hugh sand cliffs! Great house for 'girlfriend getaway weekends!' I've worked hard to make our home feel like 'your home.' It truly is our paradise!! Some of our renters have stayed at our house since 1994!!! They feel as though it's their own house and we hope you do, too!

Rhonda Manning purchased this house in 1994
We chose this location because it's close to the Cape's Sagamore Bridge and the Cape Cod Canal which is great for fishing, riding bikes, jogging, walking! The Sandwich area is very historic and quaint. Lovely Rt.6A isn't crowded like so much of the Cape on the other side at Rt.28. There are many unique craft shops for miles along Rt.6A from our house. Our location is about one hour from our home which is great! It's also close to Logan Airport (about 1 and 1/2 hr away)
This property has a beautiful yard with lots of mature plantings and privacy. There's sun and shade. Very well manicured landscaping. House is located in a private community where most owners live there year round or use their house as a true second home so not many renters in the area. The house is fully equipped and the rooms, cathedral ceilings, colors are all very nice. There's something for everyone in this house. The beach is really great and the walk next to Scorton Creek around to the beach is wonderful. The beach is private so it's never crowded. This association is off of Rt.6A which is the more quaint, less crowded side of Cape Cod. The other side along Rt.28 is very commercial and there's a lot of traffic in the summer. This house is about 4-5 miles to historic Sandwich Center which is beautiful. There's lots to do there and I describe that all in my packet of information that I send out called Where to go and What to do. If you are a guest in the spring and fall, there's also a lot to do and this area is beautiful any time of the year. Sandwich does offer The Holly Days of Sandwich starting Thanksgiving weekend through New Year's. This is also a great time to stay at the house and join along in the many holiday activities that the town offers. Another benefit of this house and location is that it's close to the Sagamore Bridge only 3 exits away so you don't have to drive for miles to get to your Cape Cod destination.
We were looking for a home in the Sandwich area, in the off season. My son was getting married in Falmouth in January, with a reception at the Belfry in Sandwich. We needed a home in the area that slept six. This lovely Scorton Shores property seemed like the perfect spot for us to locate and it was. The wedding and reception went on as scheduled, the only hitch being the rare blizzard conditions predicted for Cape Cod. Rhonda and I communicated by texting, regarding where to find the snow shovels and icemelt. We had everything we needed and everything was easy to use. The house is so very well equiped, especially with the television and cable service which kept us well informed about the weather,
and the coming storm. With a wonderful space and good company we had a safe haven from the storm.
This lovely home was exactly as described. It's proximity to the private beach was a real plus We had everything we needed and the owner went above and beyond in informing us all we needed to know about her home and the area. Her recommendations of restaurants etc. was right on. I can't say enough about the beautiful beach this private community has. I have been a regular visitor to the Cape & owned homes here myself & consider this a hidden gem.
We absolutely adored our stay in this lovely home. It is meticulously cared for. The home is clean, bright and spacious. Located in a quiet neighborhood and feels very private. The kitchen is large and open. Plenty of comfortable bedrooms. Great outdoor shower for after the beach. A quick 2 minute car ride (or 10 minute walk) to a private, beautiful beach. We were awed by the amazing sunsets.! Just a fabulous home to vacation in. Highly recommend!
This was a great house with everything you could need. We had 4 in our party but 8 could have easily stayed there. The beds were quite comfy and there was central ac although we did not even need to use it. The breeze was great for sleeping. Plenty of space in the living area for many to sit and a great open kitchen/dining area. It was a short walk to the beach and the area was very quiet. The outdoor shower was great even on a brisk September morning. So nice to look up and see the beautiful blue sky. The outdoor space was also very nice. Rhonda was so helpful, accommodating our special requests in any way she could. If we ever make it back to Cape Cod we would definitely go back here.
Property is as advertised, clean and well maintained. Kitchen seemed to have been remodeled recently and is in great shape. Location is walking distance from beach and reasonable driving distance from Cape destinations amd restaurants. Recommend to anyone looking for a fun vacation on the Cape
Rhonda, your home was great for our Sisters/Cousins week. This was a first time cape experience for three of the cousins and the location was great for easy exploration. The home was roomy enough to accommodate the six of us easily. We especially enjoyed the beach which was perfect for treasure hunting. We are first time HomeAway renters and would definitely use the site again. Thank you Rhonda for the easy of renting from you.
The house is quite close to the Sagamore and Bourne Bridges. This is a great location because you can tour the Cape but also take a drive to Plymouth which also has so much to offer (good day trip). The house is off Rt.6 exit 3 Quaker Meeting House Road to lovely Rt.6A. This location is really great because it's not crowded like it is on Rt.28 (other side of the Cape). The scenery along Rt.6A is really nice. There are lots of shops, restaurants, beaches, playgrounds and town centers along Rt.6A. It's an excellent representation of what Cape Cod really looks like. The house is only about 4 miles from historic Sandwich Center which offers great shops, bakeries, cafes, take-out restaurants, regular restaurants, library, Dunbar Tea Room, Sandwich Glass Museum, Heritage Plantation. Cape Cod Canal and the marina is not far from here with bike trails, fishing, the fish market, and restaurants. Stop and Shop, stores, shops, post office, restaurants just around the corner from all of this.
Other Activities: Bike, Kayak, Boat Rentals very close to house. Take the bikes to the Cape Cod Canal and ride for 7 miles one way. There are many other bike trails on Cape Cod not far from the house. Kayak on Scorton Creek to the mouth of the ocean. Go to Sandwich Center and to the famous Boardwalk and jump off the Boardwalk at high tide or just go to watch. Book a fishing day on one of the many fishing boats in Barnstable or Hyannis. Water Wizz water park is a fun day out for both children and adults. Take a Cape Cod canal cruise. In Brewster, you will find the Bassett Wild Animal Farm; small but really nice. Don't forget to pack a lunch! You can also go horseback riding on the dunes in Truro and Provincetown. There's so much to do!!! I can help you plan your vacation if you'd like me to. One of my favorite trips is the seal watch boat trip at Monomoy Island (near Chatham); low tide best. You can 4 wheel drive on Sandy Neck Beach if you buy a non-resident pass and get the supplies required to do this.
Golf: There are so many beautiful golf courses on Cape Cod and not far from the house. Check these out by doing an internet search to see which ones you like the most.
