Kick back and relax on our deck — renovated and expanded in 2010 — and take in stunning views of Great Island and the Cape Cod Bay. This is the perfect spot for grilling, sunning, or simply snoozing on a lazy day. Grab a book, a card game, a cold beverage…just don’t miss the beautiful sunset over the water.
Our patio furniture seats 10-12 comfortably, so put your feet up and enjoy.
Our house is sheltered by pitch pines (Pinus rigida), which you’ll find all over the Outer Cape, as well as rose hips and other native plants. As you enter the house, you’ll see our herb garden; rosemary, thyme, oregano, mint, sage, and blueberries thrive here. We invite you to try the herbs, which are excellent for cooking and in summer drinks. In return, please water as needed so that we can savor the herb garden all year.
At the far end of the deck, there are stairs leading down to our outdoor shower. This fully functional shower (complete with hot water) is ideal for washing off after a long day at the beach. Since it drains right into the yard, please use biodegradable bath products whenever possible (or simply rinse sand off outside and save the soap/shampoo for indoor showers).
At night, check out the stars. If you usually live in a city — or anywhere with light pollution — you’re in for a treat. Walk down toward the driveway or turn off the indoor lights and stand on the deck for the best view. On a clear night, you can see dozens of constellations with the naked eye.
