Our comfortable 4 bedroom home with an enclosed private yard is close to both bay and ocean beaches and within walking distance to the largest swimming and boating pond on Cape Cod (Long Pond). We are a mile to the Cape Cod Rail Trail; you can bike all the way to Wellfleet! Harwichport is a short drive away and offers charming shops and restaurants. 20 minutes from Hyannis Airport and 1.5 hours to Boston and Cambridge.
Our house is great for a multi-generational family or two small families.
Our two story single family home has four bedrooms. (1) Master bedroom with en suite bath and queen bed, Fire TV and view of the woods. (2) Bedroom with queen bed, Apple TV and backyard view (3) Bedroom with Queen bed plus pull-out loveseat bed, screen-free (4) Bedroom with twin bed and pull-out love seat bed, screen-free. All bedrooms are on the second floor, so please consider if someone in your party has mobility issues. We have the all the amenities you want for a peaceful family vacation.
You will love our backyard living with a Weber hybrid grill, a large outdoor shower, and a secluded fire pit. Gather free fresh eggs daily from our backyard chicken coop. We have five hens (no rooster); it is a huge attraction for kids. A caretaker will stop by daily to mind the food and water for the chickens, so you have all the benefits with no responsibility.
We have beach equipment available: one beach umbrella, boogie boards, 3 patio umbrellas, 5 beach chairs, 2 coolers. We have 2 nice bikes, a recreational kayak, vest and paddles. You are close to a charming general store and the pond. There are pharmacies, supermarkets and banks nearby-so access is easy.
We will be traveling, but our neighbor will provide an introduction to our home and will be available to address maintainance concerns. We will leave a detailed guide to the workings of our home and the surrounding attractions.
We have been doing home exchanges for many years. We have exchanged with people all around the world. This is our first time listing with Airbnb. We hope you love it as much as our home exchangers have.
We provide weekly garbage pick-up, lawn and garden care and off-street parking. We have a local caretaker on-call.
We are water conservationists on the Cape, so it customary here to ask guests to provide their own linens and towels. We have a washer and dryer on the first floor of our home for laundry needs. We will have the home professionally cleaned before you arrive for a cleaning fee. If you would like a mid-week cleaning you must arrange it. We can recommend providers.
Cape Cod is a natural treasure, please respect the environment and use resources sparingly.
This is our home, please consider that as you stay here, treat it well and you will be rewarded with good karma.
Best secret: local markets steam lobster for free-no lobster steaming in the house (it smells better for the next guest).
College professor, writer, empty nester. I love Cape Cod living, and will happily leave you a list of my favorite beaches and the best spots for fish and chips, lobster, ice cream, and cold locally-brewed beer.
One of my professional interests is children's literature, so the house comes stocked with a great selection of children's books!
