Why KATHLEEN BUESCHER chose West Falmouth

I grew up coming to the Cape for summers growing up-always feels like 'coming home'!

What makes this house unique

We love the quiet, nestled by all the trees yet close enough to walk to the beach yet town (Falmouth) and shops are 10 minutes away!

Great stay in a charming town!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house for a weekend out of NYC! More than enough room for everyone to hang out. Great kitchen with everything included to cook a great meal. The big dining room table (leaf that can be inserted) was used every night for dinner and cards. Great location that is fairly central to other activities on the Cape. We went out to Martha's Vineyard for the day which was so easy to get to from ferry out of Falmouth. Old Silver Beach is 2/3 minute drive and was really nice and empty. Internet was reliable especially on the main level. The house is secluded and private which is really nice. The house is actually nicer than the pictures too. The floral wallpaper on the main floor has been removed, painted recently, and it looks really nice. Kathleen was super helpful and quick to reply. I would stay here again for sure.

Lovely spot for family and friends

  • 5 of 5

We rented this summer for one week in August. The house had plenty of space for our multi generational bunch. We sat in the backyard with little white lights at night and in the morning with our teas. It was very private without any sight of neighbors. Really appreciated having all linens, etc and laundry in the basement. We brought our bikes and they were indispensable getting to market, beach, town, and woods hole. The bike back to the house is up a hill but most of our hardy bunch pushed upwards, easy walk if you must though. Some of us did a short run to the beach each day and it was lovely with the harbor and the osprey nests. We did not buy the beach sticker but instead did drop off and bike back. The water at Chappy beach is wonderful and when the tide got too high we could just set up chairs on the far end of the parking lot...sunsets are a must. You should bring your beach chairs because the beach can get narrow and make sure you walk the beach and look for sea glass or mother of pearl shells! The kids really felt safe on the sandbar too. On our last day we parked at a nearby bike path lot for free and enjoyed the beach one more day. Lots to see and do in the area or just hanging at this great home. Couldn't be nicer!

Great Falmouth Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week at Rose Cottage. The house was beautiful and large enough to accommodate our family. It was well equipped with all the essentials and many extras. When we had a small problem with the garage door opener, Kathy was able to have the problem fixed quickly. The house is close to many attractions. Chapaquoit beach is a hidden gem!

Great Vacation Home, Superb Location

  • 5 of 5

This was a marvelous home, particularly if you have younger children. We really enjoyed spending the nights and mornings relaxing and playing games. Could not have been a more peaceful stay and my kids were thrilled with the rabbitt that frequently showed up in the yard and didn't seem too concerned with people getting reasonably close. Quick drive to great beaches, restaurants, Falmouth, and Wood's Hole. Kathleen was quick to respond when emailed and very helpful when needed. Highly recommend this home.

Beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful two weeks in this beautifully modern home with great layout and decor. There was plenty of room for all ten of us, (4 young children, who loved the special playroom off their bedroom). The patio and back yard were just right for relaxing after a day at the beach. No need to cart along linens as they were more than plentiful. The open layout of the kitchen dining area was great, and the living room was a nice retreat from the little ones. I would recommend this property highly. The owner is lovely.
