About the property

Plenty of space for multiple families, located on CCRT bike path

Great updates & location!

Updates include all new windows, new kitchen with improved layout, updated bath, new first level flooring and living room furniture. The house is located on a dead-end wooded street but its just around the corner from Orleans Town Center.

Open concept living, dining and kitchen area leads onto a large new deck. Perfect set up for one large or multiple smaller families. Located in the heart of Orleans on a quiet dead-end street, this ideal location is on the Cape Cod Rail Trail (CCRT), a 15 minute walk to both Skaket Beach and Orleans center for shopping and restaurants. Four very spacious bedrooms, two full bathrooms plus a new outdoor shower provides space and comfort making this an excellent family vacation home.

If you need bikes to enjoy the local trails and amenities, there are two bike rental shops just down the street. Hourly, daily or weekly rentals available.

Of course if you are renting at the Cape, beach details are important. The pictures shown are of Skaket Beach (bay side) which is .8 mile from the house. Skaket is a smaller but beautiful, has a large sand bar for those with children, parking lot, small snack bar and bathrooms. Nauset Beach (ocean side) is much larger, 4 miles from the house, has great ocean waves, with plenty of parking, large snack bar, picnic table area, and bathrooms.

Cooler, chairs & umbrella available in the garage to use. (items shown in picture gallery).

1st Floor Master Bedroom: Queen bed (striped bedding in pic) connects to main bathroom.

1st Floor Bedroom 2: Queen bed (coral & blue bedding in pics).

2nd Floor Bedroom 3: Queen bed and single bed (gray/blue bedding in pics)

2nd Floor Kids Bedroom 4: Six single beds

Full bath on each floor, 1st floor bath has laundry facilities. Outdoor shower, walkout basement, large driveway for multiple cars plus 1 car garage.

The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need for large family gatherings. Useful kitchen gadgets, seafood necessities (steamer, lobster crackers & forks, oyster & clam knives), wine glasses & cocktail shakers, serving platters and plenty of extra dishes so you won't run out.

The house isn't just a rental property to us, its our vacation home as well so we use it often, maintain as needed and make it a bit better each year. We hope you enjoy your stay and thanks in advance for taking good care of our home.

About Margie & Jim Peterson

Mom & dad of two fantastic but typical teenagers who have enjoyed the Cape for years by camping at Nickerson State Park. Our favorite summer activities are movies at the Wellfleet Drive-in Theatre, having BBQ (Big Dogs BBQ) while bowling at the newly refurbished Orleans Bowling Center (OBC), clamming in the local shellfish beds, having at least one night at Land Ho!, ride our bikes to Arnolds for ice cream and mini-golf and of course the beach.

Margie & Jim Peterson purchased this house in 2013

Why Margie & Jim Peterson chose Cape Cod

We love this house because the wooded dead-end street gives the feeling of privacy but it's around the corner from everything we enjoy at the Cape. We bike to Arnolds or to Snow's who sells anything you forgot or need, it's close to Nickerson's kettle ponds & trails, grocery shopping, baseball in Orleans....We wish we could tell you everything there is to do and enjoy!

What makes this house unique

Our street is part of the Cape Cod Rail Trail (CCRT) bike path, the back deck is fabulous for group dining, and the hammock & swing are a lovely place for your morning coffee with a book.
