Sherbie purchased this house in 1923
We have really enjoyed the people who have stayed here over the past four years. This is a wonderful property for large groups, families or friends. The house is not luxurious but comfortable. There are a lot of rooms and enough activities for all ages. Several families have "their week" every summer.
This was even better than expected! The views are spectacular! The owners are available to answer any last minute questions and the house is so incredibly equipped! Plenty of kitchen/dining room items as well as more than enough sheets, towels, books, children's toys and games, televisions, DVD players, two different wireless servers. It was just fantastic and well worth the investment!
Beautiful location right on the water. We had a nice breeze off of the bay almost constantly. The house is equipped with everything you could need. We enjoyed swimming in the bay, playing tennis, biking and walking along the water's edge. Location is very private yet close enough to town and activities on the cape. The home is very pet friendly with lots of room to walk our dogs. We are looking forward to returning for another wonderful week.
We had a family reunion here for the week of July 4th. The house has a great view of Buzzard Bay. It is very secluded to relax and enjoy life. A little tricky to find as it sits back in a wooded area. The owner is courteous and helpful. The house flows well with bedrooms on the second and third floors, and bathrooms on the second floor. The family room and and dining room are large enough to easily hold a large group of people.The kitchen is fully stocked for cooking for a crowd. Large grounds surround the house to set up outdoor games.
All who came for this reunion wanted to stay much longer.
