About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 and 1/2 bathrooms, sleeps 6, walk to beach

This charming seaside cottage IS LESS THAN A ONE BLOCK STROLL down a winding path through the dunes to beautiful Skaket Beach. This cottage is pure old Cape Cod with just enough modern amenities - WiFi, Cable, new flat screen TV, gas grill, washer/dryer, newly installed ductless AC/heat pump on the 1st floor, and a room air conditioner on the 2nd floor. Situated on a lovely half acre, and surrounded by beautiful trees and plantings, the house affords a cozy oasis for your family. There is a picnic table for outdoor dining, a swing set for the kids and a private outdoor shower. The cottage has 3 bedrooms, all on the second floor. The master bedroom has a Queen size mahogany sleigh bed along with a new half bath, 2nd bedroom has a full size bed, and the 3rd bedroom has 2 Hitchcock twin beds. The first floor consists of a full bathroom with a stall shower and newly tiled natural stone floor, a full kitchen with separate dining area, and a comfortable living room with TV and fireplace. After a wonderful day at the beach kick back on the FABULOUS WRAPAROUND PORCH and enjoy a good book or take a snooze on the porch hammock. We welcome well behaved dogs, not less than one year of age, at no additional charge. Dog owners are expected to clean up after their pets, and if dogs are left unattended in the house they will need to be crated.

Skakt Beach Treasure

  • 5 of 5

This 1930's cottage as so charming for our family. We stayed for a full week and thoroughly enjoyed Skaket Beach and the Cape Cod Rail Trail. We really didn't need to pack so much and were so close to town center we biked everywhere. The cottage was completely stocked and very clean. We had the opportunity to meet the owners who were so helpful and kind to our family of 5 + our lab. Thanks for the memories, we are hoping to go back soon.

A perfect traditional Cape Cod vacation cottage!!

  • 5 of 5

I have just spent 2 weeks in the most delightful, comfortable, vacation cottage ever, creatively designed with every convenience in mind.

Throughout this delightful, home-like rental cottage, every detail has been thought of, and installed with care: from the interesting, traditional furniture; household textiles and linens; chairs, sofas, in the wraparound porch and garden, as well as in the sitting and dining rooms; a kitchen with every possible pot, pan and utensil one could need, and attractive, generous-size table ware.

And, more than the generous way the house is equipped, what adds to its charm and "homey" feel, is that, throughout the cottage the owners have adorned each room with pictures, ceramics and interesting artefacts.

This creative, personal touch gives the cottage the feel of being a much-loved summer home, rather than a regular rental, and one imagines that the family who live here have just gone away for a bit and are sharing it for a short time with the lucky visitor.

All this, and only steps from the spectacular Skaket Beach!

My husband and I and my son and his wife stayed here. Wonderful cottage, close to Skaket beach to watch the wonderful sunsets! Very private but close to stores and shopping. Lovely yard and great outdoor shower. We would stay here again in a minute. thank you so much.

Our First Choice for Cape Cod!

  • 5 of 5

We really loved staying here. It is a private, beautiful, and comfortable cottage with nice grounds. Being a short walk to the wonderful Skaket Beach was a big win! Our children loved it here. The close proximity to Orleans, Brewster, and Nickerson Park made travel and dining simple and fast. Thank you so much! We would definitely come again!

I would give the cottage 10 stars if I could!

  • 5 of 5

My family just returned from staying in this cottage for a week and we had the best time. Being a 2 minute walk away from the beach is the best. The cottage is beyond lovely. It is filled with amenities, has tons of space and is the perfect vacation spot. The house is spotlessly clean and has a lovely feel to it - inside and out. The grounds are lovely, with complete privacy. My kids loved playing outside in the yard and on the swing set. I loved waking up every day in such a comfortable house with great light pouring in. After running around all day, going to the beaches and parks, it felt great returning to the cottage to have a meal and regroup. Because the cottage is steps away from the beach, we pretty much caught sunset on the beach every night. The cottage couldn't have met our needs any better or been a nicer place to stay. Thank you!!!! I highly recommended the cottage for a great vacation place!!

Our beach cottage is a meandering 1 block stroll to placid bayside Skaket beach.Families have loved this beach for generations. No need for a car or parking stickers - just load up the beach cart and go. Prefer an ocean beach? World famous Nauset beach is just 4 miles away.Orleans offers the best coffee bar on the Cape (The Chocolate Sparrow), Rock Harbor for fishing trips and incredible lobster rolls(Young's Fish Market), bakeries (try the Cottage St.Bakery-yum) gourmet and family dining and ice cream shops, as well as nearby golf, tennis, surf fishing, and antique shops, Orleans has an active cultural scene including theater, art and music.The National Seashore is just a short drive (12 miles) from the cottage, as is colorful Provincetown (29 miles). The Cape Cod Bike Trail is less than one mile from the cottage and runs through 23 miles of serene countryside from Dennis to Wellfleet - great for individual and family biking - great for runners and walkers too. Take it all in, or just kick back and relax.
