My beach house in North Falmouth is comfortably large with four bedrooms and is located steps away (seven houses down) from private warm water New Silver Beach. The house features an open, airy floor plan with a beautifully designed Arts and Crafts style dining room and living room with bead-board paneling. The large kitchen is well appointed, and has an ''eat-in'' island counter. All your cooking needs are satisfied. Pots, pans, serving dishes, blender, microwave, toaster and all the needed kitchen utensils are there to make your favorite meals. The large dining room can easily fit 10 people with plenty of room to spare. There is a separate dining nook that seats 4/6 comfortably and offers an ocean view of Cleveland Ledge Lighthouse. The room doubles as a gaming room. Overall, the house flows well from front to back. Large sliders open from the kitchen and dining nook to a very large and spacious deck. A 14 X 10 foot topped pergola was installed on the deck and allows for a comfortably cool shady area for everyone to congregate and eat under. Since the installation of the pergola the deck has been a great gathering place for all guests. It offers a great place to party or just hang out. Being next to the kitchen means that meals can be easily moved outdoors. A large grill is on the deck, too.
All bedrooms are located upstairs and all have been recently renovated. The two largest feature a king-size bed and a queen four-post bed and both have air conditioning. The house is generously appointed with lots of windows to catch those afternoon summer breezes coming off the ocean. And the house has central heating for those infrequent, chilly mornings. Both south-facing bedrooms have Casablanca ceiling fans.
I try to think of everything you and your family would need to make your stay a convenience and not a bother. If you are from out-of-state and flying in, we have most everything you will need to make your beach day possible: coolers, beach chairs, beach toys and beach towels are included. There is a washer/dryer in the basement.
The back yard is great for kids and there is a large enclosed outdoor shower with hot/cold water. The greatest attribute of the beach house is that it functions very well for a shared two-family stay. The area of New Silver is family-oriented. It is not unusual for three or four generations of families to have continually met here at New Silver. People who were here as children 60 years ago are now playing with their grandchildren at the beach. People want to congregate here year after year and build on the memories that this beach environment can offer.
The house is part of the private New Silver Beach Improvement Association (NSBIA). The NSBIA, during their summer season, takes great pride in maintaining the nostalgic feel of an original Cape Cod beach community; maintaining a beautiful beach with life guards, tennis court, a snack bar (The "Tea Room") and children's playground. The Association offers weekly activities, and as our guests, you and your family will be able to take part in all the activities the NSBIA has to offer (ask for details and dates). This can greatly enhance your family's stay at our house.
Past NSBIA activities have included: swimming lessons, kid's cookout w/ bingo, teen dodge ball, movies on the tennis court, grill night, fishing tournament, horseshoe tournament and volleyball. The Tea Room is a focal point for the older kids at night. Association activities calendar for 2017 are not available at this time, but we will gladly e-mail you a copy of the 2016 calendar if you want to get some idea of what is usually available. Activities and associated amenities usually kick off on the last Saturday in June and end on the third week in August.
North Falmouth's clean, sandy beaches are the warmest on Cape Cod. Private New Silver beach is bordered by rock jetties and watched over by two lifeguards (in-season and during posted hours). For younger kids, the water level deepens very gradually and for the older kids, there is a diving raft located just off the beach.
Falmouth, which comprises eight distinctive villages, is one of the Cape’s most popular summer destinations. The town occupies the lower corner of the Cape’s shoulder, and because of the many inlets and bays, it is surrounded on nearly three sides by water. Boating and sailing is available from 11 protective harbors. Falmouth Harbor offers protected docking and moorings to boats of all sizes and has easy access to the open ocean. Fishing charter boats and ferries for Martha’s Vineyard also depart from this harbor. Canoeing and kayaking through marshes, rivers, and ponds are popular water sports.
One of the diamonds of the Cape is the Shining Sea Bike Path which is one mile away from the beach house. This nicely paved bike way runs along the ocean and through cranberry bogs, marshes and piney forests from North Falmouth to the charming New England village of Woods Hole, which is home to the world renowned Marine Biological Laboratory and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute. Bike rentals are easily available.
Nearby Falmouth is loaded with quaint shops and wonderful restaurants. There are two cinemas in the area. Martha's Vineyard is easy to get to with two ferries to serve you. Woods Hole has a nice aquarium and Sandwich's Heritage Plantation and Glass Museum are thirty minutes away. Whale watching, antiquing, going the the National Seashore and visiting bustling Provincetown are a few of the many things you can do on the Cape.
Falmouth’s historic Village Green is surrounded by stately captains’ homes. Weekly evening concerts are held in the summer at the Harbor Marine Park band shell.
The Falmouth Road Race in August is world famous. The route for the 7.1-mile race runs along the coast from Woods Hole to Falmouth (and the home owners have run it!).
It is my hope that the beach house allows you to quickly shed your stress and relax during your vacation. Whether sun bathing on the south-facing deck, surfing the net, watching TV on either of two entertainment centers or enjoying your favorite novel; the house is large enough to easily accommodate 10 people doing their own thing comfortably.
Brian, Jessica, and Matthew Adams reside in Raynham, MA and love summering in Falmouth.
Brian Adams purchased this house in 2015
The architecture of the house, the over sized deck and its proximity to the beach set it apart. And the first feeling that comes to people once they have set foot inside is the calming atmosphere it offers. The time-darkened bead board paneling, the bright open kitchen, the cheery well-ventilated bedrooms and the expansive deck with the covered pergola offer what other houses located near the beach do not have. There is enough room in the house to make it a two-family shared vacation opportunity.
The beach is 7 houses away! Not too close and not too far. The house membership to the New Silver Beach Association offers you inclusion to all activities offered and also includes life guards during posted times. The ocean water at New Silver Beach is the warmest on Cape Cod. There are two entertainment centers; one includes a 50 inch Vizio 4k HD TV and the other a 32 inch Sony HD TV. The covered pergola on the deck offers shade on the sunniest of days and allows use of the deck during light rainy periods, too. The outdoor shower is enclosed and includes heated water.
We had a great vacation, thanks to your beach house. Everything we needed was provided. My two little girls had a blast. We hope to come again with the whole family including my siblings and parents (who really enjoyed being with their grand kids for 10 days).
The house is everything we hoped for -- both roomy and cozy, steps from the warm water beach and a back porch that you never wanted to leave.
The house was GREAT!...plenty of room for everyone!.
The 2 minute walk to the beach was perfect for those that wanted to sunbathe and swim.
The bike trail to Woods Hole starts nearby so that's another "plus" for this location.
It's a 10 minute ride to downtown Falmouth for shopping and watching Cape Cod baseball games.
The owner was easily reachable if any questions arose.
I'd highly recommend this house!!!
I'm not a person for the bright lights and fancy night life so I found your property perfect for our vacation. It's locaition is excellent, just a step from the quiet beach, and the whole place just spoke of comfortable relaxation. We found everything we needed to cook, just as you said we would.. The house was charming and clean with a unique decorator's touch. We slept like logs after the walk up the beach and the swim. I hope we can come back again next year.
I loved staying at this relaxing cute beach cottage. It has everything that you need to have a cozy little stay that just embodies "peace". The house has a warm and welcoming feel to it. I enjoyed talking long walks in the quiet neighborhood in late september. This home brings me back to the question of why to go on vacation. The answer to that is to relax, and relax we did the entire stay. Thank you for an unforgettable lovely little trip!
The description on this website of this beach house is spot on! There are so many thoughtful details in this home, that make you feel like you are visiting a family member. We stayed here with friends in September, after the summer crowd had left, and had a wonderful relaxing time. Each evening we walked down to the beach to watch the breathtaking sunset with our glass of wine. We made dinner on the outdoor grill that is provided, and then spent the nights visiting on the spacious back deck. During the day we went out for day trips around the area. Our friend's two year old enjoyed the "kids bedroom" outfitted with little details making even the children comfortable! She loved the Disney VHS collection! Dan and Wendy made us feel very welcome, making sure that we were all set up for a great visit to Cape Cod. I would say that my favorite part about this house is how close it is to the beach, and being able to sleep with the windows open, having the fresh salty air wake you up in the morning. We highly recommend this vacation home to any group of people looking for a cozy Cape Cod stay! Can't wait to return in 2011!
We spent several days at the end of August in this wonderful house. We had a TERRIFIC time. The home is charming, spacious, comfortable and well-equipped. We love the style of the place.
Wendy & Dan are attentive and helpful. We didn't have any issues, but I got the impression that if we had any problems they would have been solved instantly.
The location is excellent. We enjoyed many morning walks, long days at the beach, afternoons on the bike trail and ice cream up the street. And I love the deck.
I can't say enough good things about this house. I cannot wait to come back.
