Completely remodeled in 2015 and looking great! Charming location just across the road from Baker's Pond.
The house is spacious, freshly painted with brand new hardwood floors throughout and newly installed central air. The comforts of home include TV in living room, cable and WI-FI, washer and dryer. The kitchen has all the extras you'd expect: microwave, blender, stick-free pans and of course, a lobster pot.
You will love the new open feel between the breakfast room and kitchen.
You are also welcome to use the garage and any barbeque and recreation equipment you find.
The location is ideal...a short 5-min walk to the tucked-away, sandy beach on Baker's Pond. You can swim, kayak, canoe or fish. This pond is stocked with trout and small-mouthed bass.
Explore the 'Ancient Way'--back roads into Nickerson State Park. Great for a WALKING adventure. It's accessible about 2 blocks/10-min walk up the road and directions to the 'Ancient Way' is in our guest book.
This hike is spectacularly beautiful in Fall.
There are big waves at Nauset Beach, a 10-min drive, where you can swim, boogie board or just walk the long expanse of the Cape Cod National Seashore.
Skaket Beach, on Cape Cod Bay, is only a 5-min drive away. The water is warmer and at low tide you can walk out for almost a mile.
Rock Harbor(free parking) is just a little past Skaket Beach. Arrange a fishing trip on one of the many charter boats or just watch them bring in their catch.
I have also listed one of my favorite fishing captains in the guest book.
Rock Harbor is another good spot to walk out 'on the flats at low tide.
Really fun for kids and don't miss the sunset on Cape Cod Bay-WOW!
This is a lovely house, always meant to be enjoyed, in the perfect Cape Cod location, in any season.
2 bedrooms, 4 beds: 1 Queen, 2 Twin & 1 Queen Sofabed

My parents, who loved the Cape, built this home in 1978 after my father retired from the Milwaukee Police Department. We have decided to keep the property in the family as a getaway place for us and to allow others to enjoy the beauty of Cape Cod as well. We hope you enjoy your stay.
A Summer Place - Cape Cod purchased this house in 1978
My family of 6 stayed at this charming home in August this year and had a very memorable vacation on the Cape. You can't beat its location both on the Cape (minutes from the main highway) and within Orleans (short driving distance from both the ocean and tide-side beaches and town). The home had everything you need in terms of amenities, and was very clean and spacious. Its layout was such that the six of us could easily spread out and not feel at all crowded. Its located in a nice neighborhood near a freshwater beach which we walked to each morning. You can clearly tell that its owners take a lot of pride in maintaining it and have everything arranged so that visitors feel at home. The owner not only answered every question and provided ideas in advance of our trip, but maintains a notebook in the home for guests to share their adventures and recommendations for making the most out of exploring the Cape. We would definitely stay here again as well as recommend it to our friends and family.
This was our first visit to cape cod. The location of this house was amazing! Perfect lake with beach access in walking distance--swimming & fishing, not crowded, state park was very close--awesome trails for hiking and biking. Beach was just a few miles away. Plenty to do in the area. (National Seashore, Cape Cod Rail Trail, Nauset Beach, Skaket Beach, fishing (fresh water & salt water), hiking, shopping, great local restaurants/take out) The house was perfect for our family of four. I have already recommended this house to family & friends.
