Experience the quieter side of cape cod. Scenic route 6A is chock full of antique shops and some of New England’s finest boutiques. The tree-lined winding road will bring you to many of the area’s finest restaurants while passing through some of america’s oldest villages.

“Landscapes, like beauty, may well be colored by the eye of the beholder, but steering along tree-shaded route 6A on a mild summer day, with blue inlets of cape cod bay on one side and white picket-fenced houses on the other, I’m tempted to conclude this may be the most appealing stretch of america I know.”

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful sunset
My family of 5 (plus the dog) had a great stay. Nance was a great host, really easy to communicate with and provided us with great information about the area to help make our stay even better. The view from the yard was beautiful, we found ourselves rushing home every night to see the sunset from the yard. The house was perfect for the 5 of us and was very convenient to rte 6 and 6A. We also enjoyed hiking and biking right from the house. We would definitely stay here again.

4/5 Good

Nature Trail

5/5 Excellent

Great getaway
Perfect relaxing trip away. Just what we needed.

5/5 Excellent

Fantastic stay
We would come back in a heartbeat. The house was cozy, with a fantastic deck and view of the marsh. We enjoyed walks with our dog to the marsh and beach. Nance was a great host!

5/5 Excellent

Simply Perfect
House was just perfect and such a breath of fresh air after this year of lockdown. Warm, airy, serene and clean Nance has created an oasis! The best part for me was the proximity of the walking trails and the pup was exhausted from our daily walks to the beach. Great town, walkable from house and great location on Cape. Beaches were colder as it was start of fall but still has some days in the warm sun! House was perfectly decorated enough touches but not overwhelming or cluttered. Just great and can’t wait to go back!! Oh and SUPER clean and Easy to Check In!
