Great walking and running paths along Scorton Creek, around to ocean side. Fans, central air, gas grill. Complete packet of information & booklets sent.

You can walk the beach for miles connected to Sandy Neck Beach, excellent location, great ocean fishing, making the area very adult and family oriented. Most houses are occupied by year round residents. No pets are allowed.

Cross over the Sagamore Bridge, stay on the beautiful bay side of the Cape, enjoy the relaxation that our lovely home, beach,and Rt 6A restaurants, and unique shops have to offer!

Some of the same people have rented our house since 1994 when we purchased it, and continued after our recent renovation and new addition! (done winter 2005) We can provide several references.

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!

About Rhonda Manning

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!

Why Rhonda Manning chose East Sandwich

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)

What makes this house unique

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 with central air 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.

Celebrating with friends in a perfect setting

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 5 day trip to Cape Cod with my College Girlfriends. The house we rented, Property ID 269837, in East Sandwich was absolutely perfect! Very clean and comfortable, with a stellar location we could not have had a better home in which to celebrate our 70th birthdays and 50 years of friendship.

I am still receiving texts from the girls as they bask in the glow of our great trip. While we had no control over the perfect weather, everything could not have gone better. The sunset on Scorton Shores is worth a trip! Everyone we met was friendly and engaging and really did their best to make to make sure we had a good time!

A very clean and nicely appointed home.

We have been coming to this rental for several years. It is like a home away from home for us. It is in a wonderful area and close to many attractions.

Family vacation memories

  • 4 of 5

Our 2017 Summer Family Vacation went down in the books as quite memorable. Three weeks before our scheduled vacation, the original place we had rented had an unexpected plumbing problem which basically cancelled our vacation. We found this place and were delighted with all aspects of our stay. East Sandwich was a wonderful area to vacation. This Cape Cod home in Scorton Shores served our needs. We especially LOVED the ping pong table in the lower level - we are big fans of ping pong! The neighborhood is very quiet. I love to walk so the surrounding streets were perfect to get my exercise each day. We definitely would rent again!

Second visit and just as good if not better than the first!

  • 5 of 5

Second time we've stayed here and it will not be the last! Great location for many parts of the cape and other parts of (ma) - such as Mystic Seaport / Boston etc. House and it's access to a private beach are worth many extra points! Wife and daughter got all the beach they needed only a few mins walk from the house AND hardly anyone else there - peace and quiet! House has everything needed for a great stay - air con seemed even better this time for us poor Brits who fade in the heat! Rhonda was as helpful as ever, suggesting specific shops for certain hard to find things and also new places to eat/visit since last time!

Not a lot more to say! Just need to save the pennies for the next visit!

Great vacation in East Sandwich

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year staying here and we love it. Five adults and a toddler and there is plenty of room for us all. The house and yard have everything we need and the private beach is a short ride or walk down the street. The sunsets are beautiful. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly. Rhonda the owner responds quickly with any questions and concerns.

We can't wait to go back next year.

Safe Haven

  • 4 of 5

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.

Car: recommended

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. 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.
