Stay Another Week in Our Orleans Cape Cod Rentals– You Know You Don’t Want to Leave!
Hard wood floors, brick fireplaces, and generous windows that let in plenty of light—this is the first thing you will notice upon opening the front door of our weekly Orleans, MA rentals. The classic elegance of these homes will have you lamenting the need to leave at the end of your stay, with each room offering new insight into the joys of New England living.
The living areas are filled with cozy couches, soft and colorful throw rugs that feel wonderful under bare feet, and state of the art electronics that allow you to watch the big game.
The spacious kitchens with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and custom cabinetry are designed to make meal prep an experience, not a chore, and the money you save cooking most of your meals can go towards fun and frivolity! The dining rooms, just off the kitchens, have their own space surrounded by windows that offer unparalleled views of the scenery outside; they also make a great place to play games with your family on this vacation that you never want to end.
And finally, sleep comes easily in simple bedrooms filled with comfortable beds; there’s no excess clutter in these sanctuaries of peace and tranquility!
Living Like a Local in Orleans
For those mornings where you want more than toast and coffee and you’re not up to making a full breakfast yourself, head over to Homeport Restaurant and start the day out right. With delicious omelets, a choice of benedicts, and even a peanut butter and jelly stuffed French toast, Homeport is where the locals go!
During your stay in one of our Orleans MA rentals, spend your days on a rented bike exploring the Cape, grab beach chairs, towels, and your favorite book and head to Nauset Beach for a day of fun in the cool waters of the Atlantic Ocean—there’s an unending list of fun things to keep you busy during your stay in Orleans!
While a trip to Nauset Beach is sure to please, and certainly one of the most identifiable destinations in Orleans, this is an area that’s filled with more opportunities for exploration, if only you’re willing to expand your horizon and itinerary. If you’re craving a beach locale that leans towards a more tranquil atmosphere, consider heading over to Skaket Beach while you’re in town. Situated on pristine Cape Cod Bay, Skaket Beach is highly regarded for its soft sands, gentle surf and water that tends to be warmer than expected which can be wonderful for those looking to take a dip in the waves. This beach is Orleans operated and is easy to access thanks to convenient and nearby parking options. When it comes to safety, Skaket Beach is generally a favorite amongst locals and visitors alike thanks to the lifeguards stationed across the shoreline. While there’s a small fee to access the beach, this area includes access to a bathhouse, making it as convenient and comfortable as it is scenic and inviting!
If you’re on the hunt for a freshwater swimming spot to savor and enjoy while staying in your rental, Pilgrim Lake is where you’ll want to be. This lush lake is also operated by the city of Orleans and offers guests a free-of-charge experience where the beach and gentle waves can be enjoyed alongside well-maintained facilities. The summer months are the best time to head to Pilgrim Lake when you’re visiting with little ones as lifeguards are regularly on duty. As an added bonus, Pilgrim Lake isn’t far from Fort Point where marshlands make up a majority of the landscape and provide an intriguing and insightful place to enjoy an afternoon. Trails in this area lead to Nauset Marsh for those that are willing to lace up their boots and explore a bit more.
If you’re a traveler to Orleans with a heart for history, make sure to make some time on the itinerary for a stop at the French Cable Station Museum while you’re in town. Situated at 41 S. Orleans Road, this historic site was constructed in 1891 by the French Cable Company and today, functions as a museum complete with displays and exhibits highlighting the evolution of communication technologies. The museum is open to the public during the months of July and August between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm Tuesdays through Saturdays. This is a family-friendly museum stop that’s as interesting as it is educational for all.
