You can walk the beach for miles connected to Sandy Neck Beach, excellent location, great ocean fishing, making the area very adult and family oriented. Most houses are occupied by year round residents. No pets are allowed.

Cross over the Sagamore Bridge, stay on the beautiful bay side of the Cape, enjoy the relaxation that our lovely home, beach,and Rt 6A restaurants, and unique shops have to offer!

Some of the same people have rented our house since 1994 when we purchased it, and continued after our recent renovation and new addition! (done winter 2005) We can provide several references.

I own the house with my husband, Dave. I manage the house and help you plan your vacation by providing all the information you need in my packet that I send you along with booklets, etc. We bought our house because we have both loved the ocean since we were kids. We had vacationed at Cape Cod with our family and dreamed about owning a house on the Rt.6A side of the Cape (the bay side, less crowded, very quaint). That dream came true in April 1994 when we purchased our home in private Scorton Shores! Once we glanced at our beach with that blue/green color that we love, we knew that this was meant to be. Our next plan was to completely renovate and add on which we did winter/spring of 2005. We, and our repeat renters, couldn't be happier with the changes! Our yard is beautifully landscaped with sun and shade. We love to walk from the house to the beach then to the Scorton Creek path when we get the chance to stay. Our renters feel as though it's their house and we hope you do, too!

About the Owner

My husband, Dave, and I have both loved the ocean since we were kids. We had vacationed at Cape Cod for years with our family and dreamed about owning a house on the Rt.6A side of the Cape. That dream came true in April 1994 when we purchased our home in the private beach community of Scorton Shores! Once we glanced at our beach with the beautiful blue/green colors that we love, we knew that this was meant to be. Our next plan was to completely renovate and add on to our house which we did from late fall 2004 through June 2005. We, and our renters, couldn't be happier with the changes!! Our yard is beautifully landscaped and we love sitting in the sun/shady areas. We both love to walk from our house to the beach (6 minutes) and around to the Scorton Creek path and back to the house for our morning exercise. Dave is a runner and loves this run more than any other! You can walk the beach for miles!!! We also enjoy the privacy our beach has to offer. You need the beach pass to get onto the beach (copies in our house). Biking, fishing, shopping, exploring are what we love to do when we're at our house. Lots of bike trails not far away!! We have grown children and have 3 young grandchildren who absolutely love the house. People who have homes in Scorton Shores either live there year round or use their homes as their vacation home; not many rental properties here. Our neighbors are great! Peaceful, family area. We're not far from Hyannis where you can shop, eat, get the boats to Nantucket or Martha's Vineyard. We're also not far from The National Seashore where you'll see wild surf and hugh sand cliffs! Great house for 'girlfriend getaway weekends!' I've worked hard to make our home feel like 'your home.' It truly is our paradise!! Some of our renters have stayed at our house since 1994!!! They feel as though it's their own house and we hope you do, too!

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5
The house was perfect, exactly what you would want in a vacation home, clean and stocked with all the essentials. Property is well kept & in a quiet area. A good walk to the beach, didn't have a chance to explore much of the area. Would definitely recommend & plan to return in the fall.

A definite repeat!

What a wonderful and attentive host! House was the right size for our group and had everything we needed to prepare meals. Rhonda gave us many ideas for what to do and see. The private beach was easily accessible . If you rent this home, please make sure you visit the Sandwich boardwalk. Will definitely be a first choice when we visit the Cape next.

Perfect place for a fall getaway

  • 5 of 5
We were in town for a long weekend celebrating fall and a family reunion. My sisters and I live in Georgia and Alabama, my brother in Los Angeles. While most of the festivities were at my grandmother's house in Sagamore, several of us opted for and East Sandwich outpost, and were happy that we did. It was a great few days of New England fall in a comfortable house, near the beach, with great outdoor sitting and relaxing. Rhonda, the owner, is full of recommendations for food and activity, and trust me she knows what she is talking about. The Belfrey in Sandwich is a beautiful restaurant that we have known for awhile, and Beth's Bakery is a great front porch for coffee and a sweet treat. We picked up steamers and lobster at Joe's, always the best place. It's so easy to squeeze in so much on the cape. I would stay again and highly recommend.

A great home in a great location

  • 5 of 5
This was the first time we booked on this site (from the UK) and found this home quickly with a great star rating - that's always a good sign. Rhonda put us at peace very quickly, answering all the questions we had and also helping out and being understanding when booking a US holiday from abroad. We were well prepared on arrival as Rhonda had made sure we understood clear directions, instructions for keys and the layout of the house etc. I wish she could have managed the Boston customs at 1.5 hours(!) However, we eventually got to the house and it was clean and well laid out from the moment we first stepped in - also we noted how well appointed it was with all the right mix of items you might need during a holiday.
As a base for a holiday in South New England, I can think of fewer better locations - my daughter and wife loved the ability to walk (less than 10 mins) to a private beach where everyone was friendly. It's easy to go further into the Cape in any direction - boat hire at the Bass River, a day in P-town, shopping at the Cape Cod mall etc .... as well as easy to go the other way and spend time exploring (Mystic Seaport is about 2.5 hours drive but well worth it!); Boston of course, and LLBean if you can cope with a long drive! Scenery was gorgeous, weather great and even the traffic was not that bad (if you avoid on/off the cape at key times on friday/saturday).
The best things was knowing you had the house to come back to and chill/relax inside or outside .... I can recommend this property to anyone - we were a family of 3 and loved the space, but clearly the house could cope with many more people and not feel tiny.
Not sure when we will be back, but rest assured it will not be the last time we come to this wonderful spot of Cape Cod peace!

Truly home away from home in Cape Cod

  • 5 of 5
My daughters and I spent 3 nights in this beautiful Cape Cod home. It was the perfect place for our needs. The beach is private and the home is clean and beautiful. The yard is secluded from neighbors so you can quietly sit outside and read. Rhonda was very helpful and thorough. We enjoyed her suggestions for our shopping in Sandwich. A wonderful trip!

Perfect summer vacation home!

  • 5 of 5
We had such a wonderful week at this perfect summer vacation home!
The house is cozy yet spacious and spread out enough for those nights with a few added guests. We had everything we needed, the outside shower was a big hit as was the additional living space downstairs with an added half bath. The backyard offered a lovely spot for curling up with some summer reading. All the amenities we needed and then some. The house is clean and decorated in true cape charm style. We loved the area and enjoyed the quiet private beach. It was a pleasure to work with the owner, and I would highly recomend this home to anyone looking for a nice summer vacation spot.
Rhonda recomended some great restaurants and activities in the area and we found the perfect balance of R & R and family activities. Quiet, relaxing, yet close enough to antiquing, water parks, mini golf and some great ice cream shops. A perfect Cape Cod getaway!

From the Owner

We chose this location because it's close to the Cape's Sagamore Bridge and the Cape Cod Canal which is great for fishing, riding bikes, jogging, walking! The Sandwich area is very historic and quaint. Lovely Rt.6A isn't crowded like so much of the Cape on the other side at Rt.28. There are many unique craft shops for miles along Rt.6A from our house. Our location is about one hour from our home which is great! It's also close to Logan Airport (about 1 and 1/2 hr away)

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Logan International (Boston) at 65 Miles Nearest Barpub : Bee Hive Tavern, Rt. 6A E.Sandwich at 1 Miles Nearest Ferry : Hyannis, Cape Cod at 12 Miles Nearest Golf : Holly Ridge or Paul Harney, Sandwich at 8 Miles Nearest Train : Boston (Amtrak) at 12 Miles Nearest Motorway : Rt. 6 off Exit 3 Quaker Mtg House Rd at 4 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Amari, 6A Cafe, Bee Hive Tavern at 1 Miles Nearest Beach : Our Scorton Shores Private Beach at 0.4 Miles Car: recommended

The house is quite close to the Sagamore and Bourne Bridges. This is a great location because you can tour the Cape but also take a drive to Plymouth which also has so much to offer (good day trip). The house is off Rt.6 exit 3 Quaker Meeting House Road to lovely Rt.6A. This location is really great because it's not crowded like it is on Rt.28 (other side of the Cape). The scenery along Rt.6A is really nice. There are lots of shops, restaurants, beaches, playgrounds and town centers along Rt.6A. It's an excellent representation of what Cape Cod really looks like. The house is only about 4 miles from historic Sandwich Center which offers great shops, bakeries, cafes, take-out restaurants, regular restaurants, library, Dunbar Tea Room, Sandwich Glass Museum, Heritage Plantation. Cape Cod Canal and the marina is not far from here with bike trails, fishing, the fish market, and restaurants. Stop and Shop, stores, shops, post office, restaurants just around the corner from all of this.

Other Activities: Bike, Kayak, Boat Rentals very close to house. Take the bikes to the Cape Cod Canal and ride for 7 miles one way. There are many other bike trails on Cape Cod not far from the house. Kayak on Scorton Creek to the mouth of the ocean. Go to Sandwich Center and to the famous Boardwalk and jump off the Boardwalk at high tide or just go to watch. Book a fishing day on one of the many fishing boats in Barnstable or Hyannis. Water Wizz water park is a fun day out for both children and adults. Take a Cape Cod canal cruise. In Brewster, you will find the Bassett Wild Animal Farm; small but really nice. Don't forget to pack a lunch! You can also go horseback riding on the dunes in Truro and Provincetown. There's so much to do!!! I can help you plan your vacation if you'd like me to. One of my favorite trips is the seal watch boat trip at Monomoy Island (near Chatham); low tide best. You can 4 wheel drive on Sandy Neck Beach if you buy a non-resident pass and get the supplies required to do this.

Golf: There are so many beautiful golf courses on Cape Cod and not far from the house. Check these out by doing an internet search to see which ones you like the most.

From the Owner

This property has a beautiful yard with lots of mature plantings and privacy. There's sun and shade. Very well manicured landscaping. House is located in a private community where most owners live there year round or use their house as a true second home so not many renters in the area. The house is fully equipped and the rooms, cathedral ceilings, colors are all very nice. There's something for everyone in this house. The beach is really great and the walk next to Scorton Creek around to the beach is wonderful. The beach is private so it's never crowded. This association is off of Rt.6A which is the more quaint, less crowded side of Cape Cod. The other side along Rt.28 is very commercial and there's a lot of traffic in the summer. This house is about 4-5 miles to historic Sandwich Center which is beautiful. There's lots to do there and I describe that all in my packet of information that I send out called Where to go and What to do. If you are a guest in the spring and fall, there's also a lot to do and this area is beautiful any time of the year. Sandwich does offer The Holly Days of Sandwich starting Thanksgiving weekend through New Year's. This is also a great time to stay at the house and join along in the many holiday activities that the town offers. Another benefit of this house and location is that it's close to the Sagamore Bridge only 3 exits away so you don't have to drive for miles to get to your Cape Cod destination.
