Quaint Little Cape Cod Cottage; Porch Overlooks Town Cove

Bedrooms 2
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 - 7 nights


About the property

Cottage, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This renovated, nicely furnished and exceptionally clean, sweet, little cottage located across from the Orleans Town Cove, is within walking distance to bike path, shopping and restaurants. We are situated in Orleans center but you would never know it in this secluded, friendly little neighborhood. Right next door to the famous Cottage Street Bakery, you can enjoy early morning treats on a porch rocker, overlooking rambling roses and the cove. Later enjoy fabulous home made ice cream from the Ice Cream Cafe on the corner.

Small master bedroom has a queen-size bed. A small second bedroom has 2 twin beds for one or two persons. The fully-equipped kitchen has a breakfast bar and a small dining table. The living room has the charm of an old stone fireplace. Unfortunately, it is not functional, but certainly adds to the ambiance. The cottage has a small yard with cove views for grilling and eating outdoors.

Proximity to the cove offers a wide variety of leisure activities such as kayaking, sailing, fishing, and watercraft access to the ocean beach. Nauset Beach (ocean) is three miles and Rock Harbor and Skaket Beach (Cape Cod Bay) are two miles. Just 3 miles to the Cape Cod National Seashore Visitor Center and Coast Guard Beach. The Cape Cod Rail Trail (bike path) connects you to all towns on the Cape. Orleans is a great location, central to all towns on either end of Cape Cod.

Wireless Internet and Broadband are both provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time. We love the cottage. We found the stove difficult to light. We also bought 3 cereal bowls at the thrift shop and left them here. We would love to come back next year at the same time if we are able.

Just a fabulous place!

  • 5 of 5

We love this little cottage. We have stayed here twice with our 2 dogs. The location is exceptional. You're within walking distance of shops and restaurants and the bike trail. Plus the view from the front porch is fabulous. The best part is the bakery right outside your back door!! National seashore is 15 minutes away. The cottage itself is just comfortable for 3 grown-ups. The kitchen has everything you need and a nice supply of puzzles and games and books. Very clean bathroom and bedrooms as well. The owner, Kathie, is very personable and wants to make sure your visit is just right.

The cottage was so charming...complete with front porch to sit on to enjoy the breeze and eat lunch. It was so clean and had everything we needed and more. We were able to relax and unwind after a long day at the beach or site-seeing very comfortably. The best part is Kathie welcomed our family dog...a very important part of our family. Of course, just like everyone else...we couldn't stay away from the delicious "dirt bomb" muffins at the bakery next door and the ice cream on the corner!

Wonderful Time AGAIN...

  • 5 of 5

We returned again to your quaint little cottage over the Labor Day weekend and have a FABULOUS time!!!! So glad that Hurricane Earl didn't ruin our time, just some rain and wind during the night but the rest of the weekend was gorgeous! Can't wait to decide on which we we'll come up for next summer and bring our kayaks! Thanks so much!!!!
