Exceptional, private property on one of the most scenic routes in the country and 5 min drive from one of the best Cape Cod beaches. One of few rental properties with such a privacy and yet so close to everything.
Situated on an old hilltop farm property set off by stone walls and private woods, right on Historic Old King's Highway (Route 6A), yet set well back from the road. You will enjoy quiet seclusion, yet still be only 10 minutes by car from all that Hyannis has to offer: restaurants, shopping, movies, tourist attractions and the ferry to Nantucket. Fantastic location for a first time Cape Cod visitors who would like to explore the Cape to the maximum in a short time, including 18 beaches in 15 miles radius.
A paradise for active, outdoor children with a swing set, enormous sandbox, playhouse. Ideal, too, for couples or smaller families who enjoy hearing birdsong in the morning as they sip their morning coffee on the private deck.
The restored farm kitchen keeps it original character and very well equipped. There is adjacent traditional parlor great for family board games or afternoon tea time. The living room with fireplace opens onto a spacious secluded deck. Full size bathroom has tub/shower and farm pedestal sink, and washer/dryer.
Master bedroom boasts a king bed plus a cradle for babies up to 6 months, at no extra charge. Second bedroom has 2 twin beds, while 3rd bedroom has a comfortable twin-sized bed with trundle plus a cozy built-in child's sleep nook. Beach chairs, umbrellas, sand toys on site for your use.
Savor brunch, coffee, ice cream and get your local groceries (including authentic French bread and wine) in popular Barnstable village with its authentic New England appeal, only minutes away. Short drives to major beaches (Craigville, Sandy Neck, Hyannis) as well as Hyannis Whale Watcher cruises (based out of Barnstable's Millway marina), and the Audubon nature preserve at Long Pasture. The perfect launching point to any destination from Sandwich to Wellfleet.
