About Gordon Russell
My wife's family grew up spending summers on Sagamore Beach. It is a wonderful place. So easy to get to Boston or Nantucket for the day and home in time for a cocktail in the hot tub! We purchased our home in 2003 and did major renovations in 2004 and 2005 and spent the entire summer there. Sadly, I can't get there as much right now...so take advantage!
Gordon Russell purchased this House in 2003
What makes this House unique
It is a property you never want to leave! Great days by the pool or at the beach. Cocktails on the front porch taking in a unique glimpse of the ocean. Great private grounds surrounded by a privet hedge. Nice little village great for a leisurely walk. Bike or walk (5 minute drive) to the Cape Cod Canal for a great jogging/biking/walking path. But...should you want to explore it is so easy. Boston is an hour away by car and the ferry to Nantucket and Martha's Vineyard is a 30 minute drive.

Not what we expected!
The house looked lovely on the website but was very in need of an update when we saw the home. It was tired and not very well kept. The kitchen was disorganized, closets had old food, opened packages with past expiration dates, used bottles in the refrigerator it just didn't feel clean. A variety of pots and pans but very old teflon that rubbed off into the food!!! Sitting on the sink was a used tube of kids toothpaste and a 5# weight! The living room was nice and family room ok. Very nice front porch but again not very clean. The bedroom closets cluttered with old comforters etc. thrown on the bottom floor. It just felt unkept.
The home was in walking distance to the beach but be aware this is not the ocean side of the beach. The beach is not taken care of and was heavy with seaweed after a storm. The house provided 2 old beach chairs, really?! For the price of the home and for how many it slept I think more than 2 chairs could be provided as it is not possible to rent chairs or umbrellas on the beach. The only saving grace was the outside pool which was lovely. Lounge chairs and umbrellas (2) a hot tub and table to eat at along with a grill. All in all I felt the house was overpriced for the area and what was provided.
Great 2 family home
beautiful home with a nice view of the sound. Wh..en we arrived home was cleaned and a note nice note left by Bob the caretaker. Took a few minutes to figure out the pool and spa directions but we managed to figure it out. Glad we had the pool and spa because the sound was ice cold. Lots to do within a few miles... beaches ,parks,golf, etc. took a ride to Provincetown...lots of traffic..but enjoyed the sights.House was well equipped..could use a few sharp knives. Really enjoyed the front porch...coffee time- card games- reading... very comfortable. Would consider renting again, Thanks
Convenient to relaxation!
Our large family loved our stay! If you're looking for a vacation without an itinerary but still plenty to do, this is a near perfect spot! We loved the quick walk to the lovely, quiet beach in the morning, enjoying the heated pool in the afternoon, and the hot tub at night! The ferry to Martha's Vineyard was a quick ride from Falmouth and the neighborhood was beautiful and very conducive to walking and running. You could also walk for miles in either direction on the beach, admiring the tall sand bluffs to the north. At times it was a little congested in the kitchen and dining room but it was completely workable. Everything was clean and comfortable. Gordon made us feel welcomed with a bottle of wine upon arrival, the handyman was super helpful, and check out was a total breeze with not many obligations. Would totally stay here again!
A great family home !!
This was a wonderful vacation for my whole family. We are planning to return!
Wonderful Cape Cod home
I stayed here with my two daughters and it was the perfect home. Great location. Can see the ocean from the beautiful front porch. We certainly utilized the lovely pool area and hot tub. The house is well appointed and we wanted for nothing. I had great communication with the owner prior to arriving and the caretaker for the property was super helpful with local suggestions. Cannot say enough about what a great time we had. I highly recommend this home. Location is ideal.
A home away from HOME
This was the first time my family used HOMEAWAY as a way to vacation with our adult children. It is always a challenge to get everyone together. Choosing Sagamore beach and this rental was a perfect mix for us. We arrived to a clean home with all the comfort of our own home. The host was gracious and accommodating to my ever-ending concern about the process.
Wonderful, relaxing, family friendly village of Sagamore Beach. Stay close to home and enjoy the pool and beach, or take easy day trips to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard Islands (30 minutes to the ferry). Or enjoy a day in Boston on the Freedom Trail and take in a Red Sox game at Fenway (60 minutes by car). Or perhaps enjoy a day of fishing out of Barnstable (20 minutes by car) or a Whale Watch trip out of Plymouth (20 minutes by car). Sagamore Beach is convenient to it all. There are a many top notch golf choices within 30 minutes drive. My favorite is Pine Hills. It is a great course (actually there are two courses). There are at least a half dozen others to choose from. I have found it fun to take a fishing charter. You can go to West Barnstable Harbor for Cape Cod Bay or to Buzzards Bay on the other side of the Cape. A fun day might be whale watching out of Plymouth Harbor. I would encourage you to take a day trip over to Nantucket. All these are within about 30 minutes car ride or so. For shopping I would recommend a trip to Mashpee Commons (also nice restaurants and a movie theater there) and/or Osterville (more quaint). A little farther away is the town of Chatham - this is a nice day trip to take. Sagamore Village is quiet and nice. Williston Road is a dead end and taking early morning /evening walks around the neighborhood is enjoyable. Also take a bike ride (or run or walk) along the Cape Cod Canal It is just a 5 minute bike ride away.
