Guestbook comments from the owner

This was written in our guest book.....



P.S. by the "husband":



Truth be told, I was very skeptical about the "vacation" - I knew very little about Cape Cod - am not really a beach person myself - so my whole attitude was, "let me play the dutiful husband and go with the flow". That was still my attitude until the GPS announced "you have arrived!". I looked at what the GPS was referring to - saw how beautiful the outside looked and said to myself-----"Oh my God, she (wife) did it again!"



I commend her for her adventurous attitude and doggedness in finding your place - without any exception - we had a wonderful time. So in thanking you for allowing us into your home, I am complimenting my wife for a wonderful find. Thanks - L.

An awesome getaway! The house held our entire family of 7 perfectly!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first family get together in 5 years. So, even though the weather didn't cooperate, the house was cozy enough for family activities yet spacious enough that we could break up into groups. Our hosts were extremely thoughtful and gracious, even late at night when we called because a storm knocked out the power! Thank you!

Northern Cape Classic.

This charming, rambling house is elegant inside and out. Comfortable and well located. Pleasure to work with owners Bob and Mary. Good communications, with everything thought out in detail with efficiency. We hope to return.

A Secret Garden

  • 5 of 5

I have visited Cape Cod for many summers and have stayed in numerous properties. I must say, this house is very special. The house has plenty of room for my family of three generations and the property is close to all attractions yet secluded. In the hottest days of the summer, the house remained comfortable at all times. The Gray’s beach is breathtaking, within walking distance, or just a pleasant bike ride away. At the end of the busy day, relax at the deck and watch the humming birds in action. Many thanks to the owners for the hospitality!

Great Cape Cod Escape for Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family stay Thanksgiving weekend 2015. The owners went to extra trouble to make sure that everything we might need was there, including a extra large roasting pan for the turkey and pie plates dinner for the Pumpkin and Apple pie feast after our Turkey dinner. The only thing missing was a view of the ocean, but it was a short walk there and we experienced record high-tides on Thanksgiving day to make up for it. The street and back yard view were awesome, as well. A bargain for what you get!

We had such a great time at this property . The house was just the correct size for our girls get away. Each person had their own room and almost enough bathrooms to go around. The house is well maintained and has everything you need. The owners are a absolute pleasure to work with. I will recommend this home to everyone I know that wants to head to Cape Cod. Thank you Bob and Mary for making our stay a great time.

Hidden treasure and not so hidden pleasures!

  • 5 of 5

This was the most amazing home and the most amazing owners. We loved the house. There are so many little touches and surprises to find in the decor. The flowers are beautiful. Anything you could want is here for cooking, for entertainment or for quiet times. There are book and movies and cozy blankets. Nobody in our party wanted to leave. The house is set up perfectly for couples or families. The first floor bedrooms are on opposite ends of the house - giving everybody privacy. One of the bathrooms has a handicapped shower stall with grab rails. My brother, who is unsteady on his feet, really appreciated that. The kitchen makes you want to cook! And we did! Totally tasty fresh salmon and steaks from the local market were delicious.

Mary and Bob obviously care about their home. They are awesome to communicate with and provided great tips on everything from where to eat to where to get linens. They have this huge book full of everything you would want to know about the area. We loved the local restaurants!

Don't hesitate to book here. We will be back!
