About dallas ellen crites

I spent the best summer of my life teaching at a sailing camp, Camp Avalon in Chatham. We would go to Nauset Beach on our days off. Fell in love with Nauset Beach.

I live in NYC and Boston. Work in the Financial district on Wall Street. BUT, love Cape Cod through and through. I have four families that have rented from me for 16 years! Meadow's End is truly a home and not your typical rental property. Please read reviews.

dallas ellen crites purchased this house in 2000

Why dallas ellen crites chose East Orleans

I have completely renovated the house. Have converted the garage to a great room and enlarged the upstairs bedrooms. Wish I had more property to add more rooms. It is now a home called Meadow's End and my renters feel so much at home. I go up every June and end of September. It is my special place that I love so much. I have many special items in the house that makes it so much like a home that you wont feel you are in a rental property. Everyone has greatly respected my property and I really appreciate it. Maybe thats why they come back. Thanks for looking.

What makes this house unique

Meadow's End was built in the late 80's but is an exact replica of a tradiotional Cape. (Down to the window placements). The floors are wide pine and are in every room. The bricks in the fireplace are also very old. If you want a true cape experience, Meadow's End will give you that.

Guestbook comments from the owner

In a word... Perfection! Our family has vacationed at 12 Meadow Way for the past 15+ years. We have experienced all phases of family life there, and each has been ideal. Young children are safe playing on the beautiful grounds and quiet 'end of cul de sac' location, and the private back deck is perfect for relaxing at the end of a beautiful beach day. Meadows End offers all you could want and more as a haven at the Cape. The spacious living space is conducive for all vacation activities. Family dinners, game playing, puzzle making, television watching and cooking are all relaxing in this beautifully appointed home. If you think you want it, it's there! There is also room for quiet, private time in the cozy sitting room with a fireplace. The large upstairs bedrooms offer an expansive getaway after a busy day. Whether it's beach (ocean or bay), shopping, sightseeing or dining you are looking for, you couldn't find a more central location. It's all within close proximity of Meadows End. The best part is returning again and again to this beautiful home. Meadows End is truly the perfect memory making vacation location, where everyone is bound to have a perfect holiday!

Meadows End is the home that hugs you!

  • 5 of 5

From your first steps through the door, breathing deeply just happens. The calm feeling upon crossing the bridge revisits you upon arrival. Meadows End welcomes you with beautiful decor where the appointments are exquisite, yet so comfortable and inviting. Dallas, the owner, has thought of every need and then some.

Location, location, location... Beach, restaurants, shopping, bike trails, whale watches, breweries, wineries, you name it, it's all there within a short distance. For families, young and old, there are activities for all to enjoy.

The one issue, if you can call it that, is that we never want to leave 12 Meadow Way. Our time there is never long enough. I am not out of the driveway and I long to open the door again.

I promise you will never regret a stay at Meadows End but experience a true quality getaway full of memory making fun.

Breath deeply,

Beautiful home in amazing location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I loved the house. It had everything we needed from beach chairs and bikes to a fully stocked kitchen. Also tons of books and movies for the kids! The quiet dead-end street was just a few minutes from Nauset Beach too! We truly loved our stay.

We enjoyed the attractive cottage.

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations met our expectations and we appreciated the well equipped kitchen. It was nice to have bikes, beach umbrellas & chairs available. However, the outdoor grill did not get hot enough.

Wrapped in Impeccable Cozy Charm

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely LOVE staying here. The owner has incredible style and decor and it is impeccably clean and cozy. We I mmediately settle in and it's quiet and serene. Right near the beach and a quick hop to town/restaurants/groceries. Owner is helpful and warm and understands what hospitality is all about. We will never stay anywhere else. The feeling stays with us all year long.

Charming to the max

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our extra long weekend on Meadow Way. We have rented homes at the Cape for years and each one has its own personality or no personality. Some houses are stark and sterile, but not here. It was more like being in someone's home with all the sweet touches that not everybody might leave in the care of strangers. The hand thrown pottery dishes and the original artwork over the walls and the bookcase filled with every book I ever wanted to buy from the charming bookstore in Chatham made for a very comfy homey visit. It was supplied with everything we needed, the bed was great and the decor in the whole house was endlessly fun to explore. It had a strong feminine touch with an hydrangea theme, but so very tastefully done. My husband liked the big swivel armchairs and huge tv on the rainy day we were inside. The house is at the end of a cul-de-sac and so quiet away from the fray. We found the location super convenient for a market and good restaurants. The owner was was quick to respond to our questions and easy to work with. And last, but so important, the house was CLEAN!!!!

The property is in excellent condition, it's clean and have a lot of European charm with excellent amenities.

While it is still off season the owner provided recommendations and was extremely helpful.

We only stayed the weekend but enjoyed it immensely and will definitely be back.
