Known as the Captain Kenrick house, this charming Cape Cod vacation rental with 4-bedroom, 2-bath offers the charms of the sea in a space that just doesn’t just welcome family, it embraces them. Sea Captain homes are rapidly disappearing from the Cape, but this one allows guests to linger in the past while enjoying all the modern amenities that make travel comfortable and fun. This guide to its charms will help paint a clear picture of what to expect when you choose New England Vacation Rentals and our Captain Kenrick home for your vacation adventures!
Built in the traditional saltbox style, the combination of horizontal siding, traditional clapboard, and sea green shutters gives the Captain’s home a welcoming feel that will excite from the first moment you lay eyes on it. Step inside to a simple space, decorated with your comfort in mind, yet still offering period details that charm. Wide planked wood flooring creates a historic path to the spaces you can’t wait to explore, starting with the living space. Offering a traditional wood hearth fireplace, painted all in white, the red wing chairs placed in front invite you to sit down and warm yourself with fire and conversation on the coldest of days. Tucked away in the opposite corner lies a plush sofa set, placed across from a state-of-the-art television, allowing guests to keep up with their shows or watch the big game during their stay.
The history of this home shows in other ways, offering separate rooms for each activity, instead of one big open floor plan, so the dining room is where we will head next. Painted in a crisp white and filled with period furnishings, this space is where games can be played, meals can be shared, and conversations will definitely be enjoyed. A door to the left leads guests into the kitchen, a space offering cabinets painted in the stormy gray of the seas, sandy colored granite tiled counters, and updated stainless steel appliances. A hammered copper sink and antique bronzed fixtures offers a modern touch with a historic feel and the large peninsula is the perfect spot to enjoy cereal and conversation on a lazy vacation day!
Outside, a wraparound porch offers a barbecue grill and another place to eat and relax, while the ocean provides romantic ambient noise as Skaket Beach is just half a mile away. Back inside, the tour finishes with the four bedrooms, decorated in a simple style that allows sleep to be the star of this vacation, and a charming and luxurious bath tucked away under the eaves of the cottage. Featuring the same wide plank wood floors that can be found throughout the house, a deep slipper tub that is topped with a tray for reading and sipping, this room is often the most popular one in the home!

Families love to find properties that make them feel at home, and we at New England Vacation Rentals love to make families happy, as proven by this 4-bedroom, 3.5-bath classic New England cottage located just a short walk from the beach! Offering a private pool to swim in for those days you just don’t feel like walking 200 extra steps, a huge yard for the kids and your dog to play in, (this home is pet friendly) and all the comforts of home, our Bucks Creek Chatham escape is destined to be your favorite part of your Cape Cod getaway!
Our Bucks Creek home really is built for families, and as you all climb up on the giant sectional in the living room for an evening of movie watching and popcorn or gather around the dining table to play the board games the owners have kindly supplied, your vacation dreams will begin to come true. Roll out cookie dough on the marble counters topping the cheerful blue island in our fully equipped kitchen, sit by a roaring fire in the family room and watch the big game on the state-of-the-art television hanging above the mantel or nap on a quiet afternoon. This home sleeps up to 10 guests comfortably, and multiple sitting areas (we counted at least three different spaces) allow for private time when multiple families are traveling together.
The sea that you can practically smell and hear from your backyard is reflected in the décor, in the cool grays, blues, and whites that can be found throughout the home, a painted wood lifesaver hanging over the sofa in one of the seating areas, and in other wall hangings that include starfish, anchors, and more. Check your work emails at the desk tucked away in the hallway, toss a few loads in the wash, and when it is time to play, sit out on the wood deck to watch the sunset or practice your cannonballs in the private pool. At night, when the sky lights up with the twinkling of a billion stars, sliding into oblivion comes easy in our bedroom retreats. Quiet, serene, and peaceful, only happy dreams will happen in these rooms—especially the master suite with soaking tub and personal fireplace!

When we go on vacation, we need more then a place to sleep, more then a place to rest our weary legs or satisfy our rumbling stomachs. We need a place that feels truly like a home with all the warmth and care that goes along with that. If home away from home is what you are looking for, then make sure you read on to learn about our Moon Compass Escape property, this beautiful Cape Cod vacation rental is sure to cause that all too familiar warmth begins to bubble up deep within you!
As the door shuts behind you with a resounding click, you survey the surroundings of your new home. You feel a light smile cross your face as you take in the clean, white walls decorated simply, yet eloquently. The main sitting area reminds you of something you may have seen in your own childhood home, though you must admit you never had such a large flat screen TV before. You run your hand along the cool, cream-colored sofa as you walk into the dining room which hosts a beautiful bay window that casts the white, wood table in golden natural light. You can already imagine you and your family sitting around, laughing, and sharing memories of times past as the smell of roasted meat and vegies fill the home.
You continue into the kitchen and feel your grin widen even more as you survey the stainless steal appliances and granite counter tops. You glance at the center island with its chairs neatly placed and already know your kids will be sat upon them, asking question upon question and you bounce between counters, cooking a feast for everyone to flaunt over and enjoy. You then notice the second living area, surprised slightly as you have never had two before. However, your eyes widen as you walk in, your gaze transfixed upon the large wall mounted TV which you already can tell will have a variety of movies playing upon its screen as the family snuggles up upon the deep blue couch. You have an instant desire to light the large fireplace as you can already imagine the cozy, welcoming feeling the home will have with its hearth lit a light. You cast a glance at the laundry room at the end of the hall, enjoying the relief knowing you won’t be wasting any time at the laundromat.
You make your way back to the front entrance and begin climb up the stairs, and soon find yourself upon the second landing with all four-bedroom doors open and eager for you to explore their depth. You walk into the first and nod your head in satisfaction at the large queen bed and flat screen TV, silently making a wager on who will win the fight to be able to call this room their own. You make your way to the bathroom with its tub/shower combo and must admit that the flairs of blue work perfectly to bring the calmness of the sea into this beautiful home.
You continue on, glancing into the second bedroom with its twin bunk beds and dresser, already knowing that your kids will be fighting over the honor of getting the top bunk, and make your way to the master bedroom, which makes your eyes grow wide and heart pound as you survey the enormous king bed and vaulted ceiling. You glance at the flat screen TV and know that you’ll greatly appreciate it when the sun has gone down, and you finally find yourself in peace and quite as you relax to a show in bed. You make your way to the en suite bathroom and, upon seeing the large, tiled walk-in shower feel the near irresistible urge to leap inside it and relax bellow the pounding of warm water. You quickly glance in the final bedroom with it’s queen and twin bed, before making your way back outside to explore the yard that you get to call yours.
You gaze out over the large, pristine green lawn that stretches out over your property, like some sort of lush fuzzy carpet. You make your way to the back and feel excitement rise within you as you gaze upon the firepit outside, complete with a circle of chairs. You smile to yourself as you imagine you all sitting around the blaze, marshmallows roasting as someone tell a joke, or perhaps a story from a time long since forgotten by most. As you turn to look back at the tall, beautiful place that you get to call a home, you can’t help but smile as daydreams begin to play within your mind as to the memories waiting to be made.

Just as we have to put a little more effort into dressing for a fancy occasion, sometimes we have to work a little harder to find the vacation home that fits our needs. There’s no sense in a honeymoon couple renting a 6-bedroom home and wasting all that extra space—not to mention the extra cost—and it makes even less sense for a family of five to squeeze into a 1-bedroom home. At New England Vacation Rentals, we offer a large selection of properties in all sizes; a little scrolling is all you will need to do to find the home that fits your family like a glove! Check out how our many home options can help you have the perfect New England vacation below.
Our 1-bedroom units are popular with a variety of demographics, offering young couples of all ages a romantic and intimate space in which to spend their vacation nights together. Whether you’re scrambling up eggs in the fully equipped kitchen or cuddling in front of the television watching your favorite shows, your Cape Cod getaway is guaranteed to be one that has it all! And because sometimes even couples that are most in love need some “space,” choosing one of our 2-bedroom rentals still offers financial savings but gives more space to spread out; using the second bedroom as an office is a popular option for those who just can’t manage to stay away from the workplace for more than a day or two!
Growing families, college friends, and siblings vacationing together as adults for the first time may find our 3- and 4-bedroom homes more to their liking. Located close to the activities you all agree you want to try, these homes offer spacious public areas, kitchens with enough room for multiple cooks, living areas with fireplaces, and private areas to retreat to at the end of the day. Sisters know the buttons to push, no matter how old we get, so having your own space is important, and being able to choose when you want to spend time with yours is a priceless vacation rental option!
Our larger homes work for family reunions, destination weddings, or for any large and boisterous family! Offering anywhere from 5 to 9 bedrooms and in many cases 5 or 6 bathrooms to help lessen morning traffic jams, these homes were designed for laughter and fun. Enjoy the benefits of spacious kitchens, generously sized living areas, and large backyards with barbecue grills and multiple places to sit and enjoy another perfect Cape Cod sunset. Some even come with private pools, allowing occupants to continue the good times with pool parties and private tanning sessions!
Reserve the New England Vacation Rentals home that fits you like a glove today and enjoy the best New England vacation!
Gone are the days when vacation accommodations offered nothing more than a clean and safe place to rest our heads at the end of a long day of sightseeing; today’s travelers want a complete vacation experience from the moment they step through the door of one of our Cape Cod vacation rentals. We get that, and we stay ahead of other companies by providing our guests with the extras they desire. When you choose one of our New England Vacation Rentals properties, you’ll soon discover why you will never want to stay anywhere else! Offering luxuries with a classic Cape Cod twist, your vacation will be one to be remembered for years to come when you stay with us.
Sometimes it’s the smallest luxuries that offer the largest impact: starter kits that come with paper towels, laundry soap, and dish soap to help keep your place clean during your stay; free Wi-Fi that lets you stay updated with your social media accounts; and barbecue grills for cooking up the catch of the day. Would your vacation be ok without these small items? Of course it would, but isn’t it nice to not have to think about or worry about buying that supersized laundry soap when you do laundry because you packed light?
Our fully equipped kitchens offer not just dishes and pots and pans, but coffee makers to ensure your morning starts right, microwaves for re-heating leftovers, and in many of our properties, even a corkscrew and bottle opener. Cable television means you won’t have to miss the big game, while outdoor furniture allows you to sit on the patios and balconies and enjoy the sun setting over the horizon. For those who expect a little more from their vacation homes, some even come with pools in the backyard!
The list of amenities found in our Cape Cod vacation rentals vary from property to property, but everyone of the homes share one common trait: all are designed to make today’s travelers feel comfortable and treasured!
Another common amenity many of our Cape Cod vacation rentals share is a fireplace. Nights on Cape Cod can get chilly, and a roaring fire is the best way to stay warm. Reserve one of our classic homes today and try to decide which amenity is your favorite!
The most important part of any vacation is the place you rest your head every night. The best vacation homes can make the best vacations shine even brighter, and we think you’ll find that our New England Vacation Rentals properties are the perfect example! Designed to spoil today’s travelers, our homes can be a vacation experience in themselves. It’s the extras that set our Cape Cod rentals apart and ensure that our guests are satisfied and sad to leave at the end of their stay!
Sure, it’s difficult to find a bad spot for a vacation home on Cape Cod, so we get that we have the advantage, but that doesn’t mean we don’t try harder to provide the best homes in the best locations! From waterfront views to charming homes located in friendly neighborhoods, we offer the best locations to be found in paradise!
A stay in a New England Vacation Rentals’ home is one you’ll never forget. Charmingly designed and sparkling clean, every room offers new surprises that never fail to delight. A soft overstuffed chair in a living room placed next to the window for optimum light will become the spot you find your daughter the bookworm happily reading during the moments you aren’t exploring what the Cape has to offer. Cheerful kitchens within sight of the television allow you to throw together a family meal and watch your favorite show at the same time. Tongue and groove painted planks on the ceilings, views from the bedrooms of the water, attic bedrooms with comfortable beds and high thread count linens—each home offers something different, but ALL our homes are constructed to make your vacation a dream come true.
Everyone deserves to be spoiled, and our extra amenities will ensure that all guests feel pampered and welcomed. From 24-hour emergency guest services to grills on the patio, beach toys (some homes even come with a kayak for water adventures!), foosball tables and more, the treasures found in a New England Vacation Rentals’ property are just more examples of what sets us apart from other rentals in the area!
It’s easy to become spellbound by Cape Cod when you stay in one of our classic New England homes or condos. Reserve your stay today and discover the adventures that unfold during your own stay in paradise!
