Thoughtfully designed in keeping with the Cape's historic charm, this beautiful waterfront East Orleans property offers an "old Cape" feel with all of the comforts of modern living. Candles in the fireplaces make for a warm and charming atmosphere, and the entire house is filled with natural light throughout the day. Enjoy many well-appointed amenities, including a brand new outdoor shower, central AC, and kayaks and bikes to explore the surrounding area. Stunning water views from almost every room in the house, and well-appointed outdoor space to enjoy the scenery as well! You can easily access the tranquil waters of Rachel's Cove, an inlet of Town Cove, via a private path through the backyard. Launch the kayaks from the shore and paddle out for a day of exploring! 

Recently purchased by a new owner, the house has been refreshed with new furniture, paint, refinished floors and more for the 2020 season. Thoughtful furnishings include 2 seven-foot sofas and a dining table with leaf extension and seating for 10. Each of the property's three bedrooms are ensuite, and an additional half bath on the main level features a washer and dryer for your convenience. The home sleeps 8 guests comfortably in beds; 10 with use of the pullout couch. 

Located in the exclusive Snow Point Association neighborhood, this home's private East Orleans setting is both tranquil and scenic. Wake up to see a family of ducks or swans in the Cove, or even a crane. The entire peninsula is fantastic for bird watching! And on a clear night, the stars are magnificent, with no light pollution to interrupt the view. In addition to the backyard views of Rachel's Cove, there is also a beautiful vista of Nauset outer beach from across the street. An easy 15 minute stroll around the peninsula offers stunning views of Town Cove, Fort Hill, Coast Guard Lighthouse and the Atlantic Ocean. You will also have access to the private Snow Point Association beach, a small sandy landing on Town Cove. Enjoy utmost privacy in the neighborhood and in the yard itself. Set on conservation land, the house is surrounded by trees with no direct views of neighbors. 

Nauset Beach is 3 miles/under 10 minutes by car. You can also bike to the beach via back roads in about 15-20 minutes. Skaket Beach on the bayside is just over 4 miles/10-15 minutes by car. Freshwater swimming at Crystal Lake, Pilgrim Lake and Nickerson State Park are all within a 10-15 minute drive. Main Street and downtown Orleans are just a few minutes away for shopping, restaurants and bike trail access. The shops at East Orleans are even closer by for morning coffee, ice cream and sandwiches for the beach.

The water view, deck, Cove access, proximity to town, option of A/C if we needed it. Also the yard was so fun for two boys to play in and the bird activity was amazing. We also really liked the houses mix of that classic Cape Cod feeling with updated furnishings. The floors were beautiful!

I was fortunate to stay here for a long weekend in the fall. The house and its setting were utterly charming beginning with the striking blue front door, the raised wood paneling in the den, and the beamed ceilings in the living area. The captivating view from the living area offers a saltwater cove, vegetation and wildlife. The house is bright with ample daylight. It is comfortable and tastefully furnished. The bed was comfortable and the house was warm. We enjoyed walks in the neighborhood and drove to the beach although it was too cold to swim. The location was convenient allowing us to explore the Cape in every direction. Orleans offered some of the best croissants this side of the Atlantic. It is what I imagined a vacation at the Cape to be and I look forward to a return trip.

Our family of four (kids 8, 6) and my in-laws spent Christmas 2019 at this beautiful house. It was my first visit to Cape Cod and it was delightful! The house has all the charm and features I would expect as well as all of the modern conveniences we all need (WiFi). The views are breathtaking and the access to the Association beach made for some lovely afternoon walks around the peninsula with views of the National Seashore and Atlantic Ocean. The location of the house was totally private and we woke each morning to see a family of ducks and other birds making their way across Rachel's Cove. The furnishings are perfectly appointed to the space, making every spot in the house a 'good seat.' The bedrooms are comfortable, each with an individual bathroom and ample space to unpack and settle in. It felt like we were visiting a family's well-kept home. The kitchen is spacious, plenty of room for someone to assist with dinner or just keep company with the one doing the cooking. It also has a darling chandelier that I love. The entire house is filled with natural light during the day, and that combined with the views gives the feeling of nearly being outdoors. We loved our visit and plan to return to Orleans, and this house in the future!
