Nauset Beach House is a beautiful, comfortable home PLUS a connected cottage, located in the very desirable area of Nauset Heights, East Orleans, just 2 lots away from the Priscilla Landing/Nauset Inlet and a walk over the dune to famous Nauset beach. Our location is ideal for people who have beach, boating, fishing, surfing, bird watching and athletic interests. The boat launching area into thousands of acres of the Nauset harbor is only about a 2 min. walk from property.
Spacious and beautiful, Nauset Beach House offers 4 bedrooms and 3.5 baths (plus a great outdoor shower!) along with a 2nd kitchen and a 2nd living room in the attached, remodeled cottage.
This 2nd living room/dining room can also be used as a 5th bedroom as it has a comfy daybed and a new high quality memory foam queen size sofa bed. The 2nd kitchen area offers an extra refrigerator, micro, coffee maker, and beautiful granite seating area. The cottage also has a pretty bedroom with 2 twins beds and a full bath.
The cottage has its own outside entrance and is connected by French doors and a pretty hallway to the main house. These can be closed for quiet and privacy. This is perfect for grandaprents or others who want to be with the group but enjoy some space too. (The main house and the cottage are always rented to the same group.)
Inside the main large house, there is a large 880 sq ft great room with 27 windows. There is a modern kitchen with a granite island to seat 5, a big dining table for 8-10 and a large living room with 2 new Sunbrella sofas, comfy chairs, 46" HDTV, Comcast cable, WIFI, etc.
Upstairs, there are 3 bedrooms--the two beautiful queen bedrooms both have water views, one with private bath, the other with a walk out water view deck. From that deck there is a spiral staircase to the observation deck with water views & often gorgeous sunsets over the inlet.
There is also a cute, nautically themed 3rd bedroom that sleeps 3, with bunk beds and a single twin. There are 2 Pack N Plays for your use as well. Both upstairs baths are spacious with full tub/showers and double Corian sinks, custom cabinetry, etc.
In the walkout basement, there are both ping pong and pool tables, sofas for hanging out and watching the games, and lots of beach toys, boogie boards, skim boards, beach chairs, umbrellas, coolers, beach umbrellas, strollers, and a fun red wagon to haul stuff in. This is also where the washer, dryer, iron and ironing board are.
Total inside square footage is 3,800. Outside of the house are 610 sq. ft of 4 big decks, furnished with multiple tables and chairs, lounges, etc. With all this space, there is lots of room for folks to move around and spread out.
The house is built of natural woods and is low allergy/non toxic, as are our cleaning products. To honor our guests with allergies, no smoking or pets are allowed. Our flower gardens and lawns are all organic and chemical free. For outside play we offer a croquet set and a bin of balls, racquets, frisbees, etc..
Please contact us, the owners, for more information, photos, contract details, future availability, and check out our new website, www.nausetbeachhouse.com
Because this is such a great house for entertaining, we have a limit of up to 12 guests to maintain its' fine condition. We do not rent for graduation, weddings or other parties, nor to underage individuals.
The house is professionally cleaned from 10-3pm between each Sat. changeover. We provide a beautiful vase of flowers from our gardens upon check in and organic greens from our gardens when available.
As we live near by, we will check you in personally and are always available to help with any of your questions or concerns. In the meantime, we are happy to email you lots more photos.
As is customary on the Cape, we do not provide sheets or towels, but do offer plenty of pillows and blankets. For those not wanting to bring their own, the linen charge is $12 per person for sheets and towels and we request that they be washed with Free and Clear laundry soap and folded as much as possible before check out.
If you have a big family or group and are serious about renting Nauset beach House is wise to act early to disappointment.
The shoulder season of May/June and Sept/Oct are much less expensive but equally nice as there are fewer crowds but still lots to do and often wonderful weather. The 3rd weekend in Sept. offers the many free, fun events in Orleans called "Celebrate Our Waters". October has the wonderful Wellfleet Oysterfest. As we receive deposit checks, we block out the weeks that are reserved.

We have many of his personal items on display here--- his dance shoes, top hat, his Tony Award for Best Actor, house keys, address book, photos with many celebrities and US Presidents, family members, etc.

HISTORY: In 1940 the original cottage was built to serve as lodging for the Worsely family during duck hunting season. The location was chosen for its' ideal proximity to the marsh and waters of Nauset Inlet. Awhile ago, it was purchased by Mark Picton, a professional builder, who built the current main house as a 2,800 sq ft 'addition' to the original cottage. The two houses are connected by a wide hallway & french doors and the Ray Bolger memorabilia display cabinet. Another Picton building project, a beautiful house in Ct., very similar to ours, was featured in the November 2009 issue of Fine Homebuilding Magazine.
Nauset Beach House is located in east Orleans which is very convenient for great walking/exploring/playing at Nauset inlet or the more famous Nauset Beach.
Nauset inlet is very calm and more like a bayside beach with warmer water and fun little pools for kids to expore. There is also great kayaking, standup paddle boarding, sailing, water skiing, canoeing and boating here, a 3 minute walk from the house. Just over the dunes is big Nauset Beach which is often voted one of the top 10 beaches in the US and was selected by the Boston Globe as best walking beach in New England. There are over 10 miles of gorgeous waves, white sand and dunes, seashells, pretty beach rocks, driftwood and wildlife.
There are beautiful sunrises, excellent bass and blues fishing, surfing, sunbathing, full moon rises, and swimming in cool ocean waters.
This prestigious area of Nauset Heights was developed over 100 yrs ago and many of those same families still summer in their original cottages. Our location is ideal for people who have beach, boating, fishing, surfing, bird watching and athletic interests. The boat launching area into thousands of acres of the Nauset harbor and marsh system is only about 200 feet from the end of the driveway. The calm water is always a favorite place for kayakers and standup paddle boarders, which can be rented by the half or full day in Orleans.
Feel free to bring or rent small boats/kayaks for easy launching & our private lot has ample parking. This unique property also offers access to our Nauset Heights Assoc private staircase down to Nauset Beach. The house is just over a mile away from the public parking area of the famous Nauset beach.
The majestic waves of the open ocean at Nauset Beach are only a 15 min. walk over the dune from the boat launching area.
This was our 2nd summer week at this beautiful home. The sprawling layout easily and privately accommodates our family of 12. The private yard is wonderful for family dinners and play for the grandkids. The home is open, clean and cozy. The easy access to the bay and ocean is an added plus. Our hosts are helpful and very welcoming. A perfect place!
We had a wonderful time. The home accommodated all our family, so we could enjoy a reunion with family just a block away. The place was very well equipped and had stunning views.Worked very well for our young grandchildren, just a short walk to beach. Our hosts were wonderful and very helpful when needed. We have recommended this home to friends and hope we can return again!
We just competed our third year staying at Ann and Richard's property. It is well appointed, Ann and Richard do a tremendous job thinking of everything you may need and are welcoming hosts. From infants to seniors, there is something for every age: toys, music, videos, games, area information, books, a game room and lots of the necessary beach essentials: chairs, boards, umbrellas, toys and coolers. We have been so pleased with the quality of the home, it is clean and very comfortable. Our family of 10 ranges from toddlers to seniors. The property around the Home and cottage provide a beautiful sanctuary to rest and relax at anytime of the day. The gardens are beautiful and serene and the bird watching is plentiful. It is located only a few miles from town to provide ample shopping possibilities.
Richard and Ann have created a wonderful, welcoming home with every amenity one could think of! The beautiful, private yard is quiet and peaceful, but close to beaches and town. The house easily accommodates extended family gatherings or groups of friends. We had a family reunion here last week, drawing people from NY, MA, NH, PA and OR. Three families stayed in this house and others at my parents' home in South Orleans, but we all spent time together at this wonderful place - 4 generations! We had one big dinner with everyone out on the porch, and the open concept living/dining/kitchen area was the scene of many late night talks, meal preparation, and movies. The great-grandchildren enjoyed playing hide and seek, wiffle ball, and croquet in the yard, and pool and ping-pong in the basement when they weren't at the beach or playing board games in the annex dining room. Others enjoyed sailing and kayaking in the bay, early morning walks over the dunes to the north end of Nauset Beach, sunset strolls to the staircase on the heights to enjoy the view or jumping in for a swim in the "swimming hole" down the beach. There was plenty of room to spread out, and the separate original cottage was perfect for the family with little ones who went to bed early and woke up before the others. Many wonderful memories were made and new friendships gained with Richard and Ann, who were wonderful hosts and next door neighbors! None of us wanted to leave and we all hope to repeat this again next June! (Almost don't want to spread the word about this special place!)
House was as described. Plenty of room for 8 Guys. Owners met us when we arrived, showed us the entire home, they couldn't have been nicer. Very clean. Grounds were beautifully cared for and landscaped. There is nothing missing that you may need in the house. I'm sure we will return! Thank you for a great week!
The property is gorgeous and has anything and everything a renter could need. The owners are extremely gracious and accommodating. This was the fifth year we stayed at the house and we hope to stay again next year too. It's truly a paradise.
