Enjoy this light-filled, antique, full Cape house. The house dates back 200 years and has lots of charm with modern amenities. It is set back from neighbors and surrounded by several yards for relaxing and quiet games. Private lake beach, canoe, walk to private bay beach. Lake breezes, large light-filled rooms. Idyllic country retreat. Two bedrooms available. Enjoy the outdoor shower, patio, lounge chairs, shade trees, spacious lawns, and grill. (See Other Things to Note for new MA tax).

The space
This house has rare access to nearby fresh and salt water beaches and unusually spacious grounds and downstairs rooms. The living room has two sitting areas, a large bay window with reading chair looking out on the garden, flat-screen TV and Wifi. A door opens onto the patio with umbrella and gas grill. Furnishings are mostly antique. Good design allows breezes in all rooms. The house was built over 200 years ago by Eben Paddock and restored and refurbished during World War II as a gracious summer home by the owner's family. Two large main bedrooms; one has queen bed and desk area, the other twin beds, and small couch. Beautiful formal dining room with antique furnishings. The 16' square kitchen has a microwave, toaster oven, coffee station, 40" gas and electric stove, portable dishwasher, and round breakfast table and rocking chair, a somewhat low ceiling - a real country feel. Large high-ceilinged pantry with fridge, counter, and long shelves. Full bath with tub off entry hall, small bath with stall shower off laundry. One upstairs bedroom with two twin beds, accessible by steep captain's stairs, also available. Outside shower gets morning sun. Beach chairs, beach towels, and canoe available. Shelter for bikes. This is a gracious country retreat.   Large circular driveway with room for cars to park on grass. This house is not suitable for children under 6 years old. Beds and couches may not be moved without permission. Additionally, while we officially only allow 6 guests (adults preferred because of antiques) for the 5 available beds, one very young child can sleep in a pack n'play downstairs. For older children, we will consider allowing you to stay. Please feel free to ask.

We are a retired couple living on Cape Cod. We spend the winters reading by the wood stove and the summers down by the lake. We have lived on our beautiful property for over 40 years and adore everything the Cape has to offer. We love to travel to see our sons and grandchildren in San Francisco and and love hosting them here as well. We can't wait to show others the gorgeous mid-Cape and this gracious antique home.
