    Great location! Walk to Skaket

    Great little house with a large yard right on the corner. Neighborhood is large and great for walking. Town of Orleans just 2 minutes away for groceries etc. Best part is walk to skaket beach in a few minutes.

    Perfect WFH away from home

    This house was perfect for a small group of girlfriends to get away for the week. We were all required to work remotely for a few days, and this house (seating inside and out, wifi, etc.) made the transition seamless for all. We were very happy with the cleanliness and overall amenities of this house - it really felt like a home away from home! Not to mention the location is pretty perfect - a short walk from the bay, and a short drive from nearly everything else! Perfectly in the middle, so anywhere on the cape is a relatively short drive :)

    Skaket Escape

    We enjoyed our time here at 4 Capt Linnel. It is a quaint Cape getaway close to our most favorite spot on all of Cape Cod-Skaket Beach! Have stayed at this home twice and will be booking again. Thank you!

    Great location, but some issues that need to be resolved

    This cute little cape house is super close to skaket beach. A 10 minute walk or a 3 minute bike ride for one of the best beaches on the cape! House was very clean, but unfortunately there were a few major issues. The master bedroom bathroom smelled very moldy, possibly from rain or water damage before we got there. There was also a huge bees nest in the gutter outside the front door, so we were constantly buzzed by bees making outside on the back porch stressful. The house would honestly have been great without these issues. It was well appointed, cheery and bright with new bedding and beach and bath towels. The pillows need an upgrade for sure. To the credit of the rental company, they came by the next day to try and make the mold smell better. It did slightly improve, but the bees nest could not be removed while were there. No fault of the owners here, just unfortunate for us. Hopefully these issues are resolved for the next renter!

    The inside exceeded expectations! Roomy and clean! The yard was perfect for outdoor activities. We played croquet, wiffleball, and my daughter worked on dodging and shooting lacrosse(we brought a goal). Plenty of room for it all! Awesome shower in the master bedroom. Huge king-sized bed. The kitchen was well-equipped and large. The refrigerator was very nice. Great place!

    Comfortable home, great location

    This home was comfortable and immaculate. It's a great location for Skaket Beach, rail trail, Orleans downtown, Salt Pond Visitor Center, and Nauset beach. It was still a little cold so we didn't make much use of the deck/grill, but the kitchen was well-equipped and common areas were comfortable. Hot shower outside was great even in the cool weather. The split floor plan with master suite on the opposite side from the other bedrooms worked well for travelling with kids. We would definitely stay here again!

    Nice house, great location

    We stayed for a few days around new year’s. Nice house, pictures were accurate. A couple realities is that they desperately need new furniture. The couches are extremely old and worn out and we couldn’t sleep in the master bed as the mattress was very uncomfortable. Also the TVs only had local channels and did not have capability to stream. Owners should consider buying a Roku or changing the cable to at least a basic package.

    Decent Orleans House

    This house is much nicer on the inside. The kitchen and master suite have been renovated and both are very nice, the living room is fine, and the other rooms are very small but okay. The location of the property is excellent. One concern is that the window unit air conditioners do not seem adequate. The deck and outdoor grill are very nice, and the yard is large, but the yard is not very well kept. Overall, we enjoyed our stay, and the house was okay for the two of us.

    Comfortable well located Cape house.

    The two smaller bedrooms and bathroom were a tad “tired” but overall the house was very comfortable with plenty of room to spread out for a family of 4 plus a dog! Huge yard was a plus with our dog too. Great central location close to many Cape attractions and restaurants any either direction. Would definitely rent again.
